Back in 2001, Derek Jeter made one of the more memorable plays of his Hall of Fame career during the American League Division Series against the Oakland A’s. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Terrence Long hit a ball down the right field line that was fielded by Shane Spencer. Spencer missed the cutoff […]

Johnny Manziel Could Help Padres, Sort Of

The Padres took Johnny Manziel, a football player of some renown, with their 28th-round pick in the 2014 first-year player draft. It’s a publicity stunt that had some fans wishing the team would pick a baseball player who might, you know, help on the field. Problem is, 28th-round picks generally don’t. Paul Molitor is in the Hall of Fame, but he didn’t sign when the Cardinals...

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

OK, yeah, I suck at it. But every once in a while St. Pavano, the patron saint of injuries, does step in and deliver just what the doctor ordered.Two cases in point. CC is out until July, and speculation is that his knee issue will be a season-ender. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, preferably deep-fried. Whether this is why he's basically sucked last year and this...

This is terrifying.I don't know about the rest of you poops, but I can't remember a colder, whiter month than the one that we are currently not enjoying.  Even you weirdos who "love snow" have to be getting sick and tired of the negative wind chills and monster snow drifts that appear to be never-ending.  It is really annoying.  We were watching my parents'...

A look back at some of baseball's 1-0 classics

When Boston beat Detroit on Tuesday in Game 3 of the AL championship series, it was the fourth 1-0 game of these playoffs. The last time there were that many in one postseason was in 1991. The drama of a 1-0 game is unique - one swing can change the result at pretty much any time. In the postseason, that tension is magnified. Here's a look back at a few of the most famous...

On this day in history | 2001

Down 0-2 in a best-of-five ALDS series, the Yankees were in Oakland trying to stave off elimination on this date back in 2001. The game featured a matchup of two aces – Barry Zito and Mike Mussina – so offense was expected to be limited. And it was. Jorge Posada came up to the plate in the top of the fifth inning, and sent a 1-0 pitch to left-field for a solo home run – giving...

Man impersonates Shane Spencer, claims steroid use

Yankees fans will always have fond memories of Shane Spencer. He was, for one September, their Roy Hobbs. Spencer, who nobody heard of, hit 10 home runs in 67 at bats in the September of 1998, three of them went for grand slams. It was not something anyone expected, especially with a team that only called him up to get some of the regulars healthy for an October run. That Yankees...

Former Yankee Shane Spencer Victim of Hoax As Imposter Implies Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera Used PEDs (Audio)

Note to radio producers: If you’re going to have a former Major League Baseball player on your program to talk about a sensitive topic such as performance-enhancing drugs, it might be a good idea to vet them, first. ESPN Radio 104.5 in Albany, N.Y., failed to do just that, and got burned in a pretty spectacular way Tuesday. Shane Spencer occupies a place in Yankees lore that far...

No one’s heard much from Shane Spencer over the last few years.  After getting slight fame from his years with the Yankees from 1998-2002, he had a forgetful year with the Mets in 2004 in which he picked up a DUI after have “six or seven beers.”  Currently, he is the hitting coach for my hometown Somerset Patriots (Bridgewater, NJ) of the independent Atlantic League but he...
