Yankees game 68 preview (6/20/15)

Nathan Eovaldi (5-2, 5.12 ERA) and Alfredo Simon (7-3, 2.58 ERA) will get the ball on Old Timers Day. Eovaldi’s last out against his former team was pathetic. He gave up eight runs on nine hits in just 2/3 of an inning. Why the Yankees are starting him just four days after that disaster is beyond me. Simon blanked the Indians over five innings and three hits in his last outing...

A-God?

In Major League Baseball history, there are only 3 players who have made their 3,000th career hit a home run. First was Wade Boggs in 1999, a Hall of Famer who was known on the field as one of the greatest hitters of the 1980’s and 1990’s. Derek Jeter came next in 2011, perhaps the greatest all-around shortstop in baseball history who will surely be a first-ballot HOFer when...

My apology letter to ARod

Dear Alex, It’s no secret that I hated your guts coming into this season, like a lot! I saw you as a greedy, pretentious, pretty boy.

I was as anti-ARod as they came. My Timehop is full of Facebook and Twitter...
