There are some things a man just knows. Old people (37 years and beyond) can’t play baseball, can’t hit for average, and can’t rank in the top ten in any offensive category (except maybe strike-outs). There is an inverse relationship between the amount of tattoos on a pitcher’s throwing arm and his ERA. Hitting with ...
In a bold if belated move Joe Girardi demoted Mark Teixeira to seventh in the line-up. This was back on May 21st, after the Yankees had gotten pounded by (gulp) the Royals 6-0, going 0-13 with runners in scoring position, their worst hitless streak in that situation since 1990. That, combined with the “inspirational words” ...
CC Sabathia's performance against the Orioles last Tuesday night was awful. Not Kid-Rock-ripping-off-“Sweet-Home-Alabama”-awful, but awful by Sabathia standards. He walked four and gave up four runs in six innings. On the other hand, Robinson Cano should have been charged with one of those runs on his error that put Robert Andino on second and allowed ...
To celebrate the inauguration of a brand new, $1.3 billion dollar stadium back in 2009, Brian Cashman went out and purchased one marquee pitcher (C.C. Sabathia), one tattoo aficionado (A.J. Burnett), and the best first baseman since Tino Martinez (Mark Teixeira). Both the Red Sox and Angels made substantial offers for Teixeira both of which ...
Derek Jeter was expected to show his age this year but Girardi had that under control. His declining bat would be protected by Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, and the rest of the second-most potent offense in baseball last year. Instead, he’s batting .404 with 13 RBIs and four homeruns. A-Rod and the boys ...
As a diasporic Yankee fan living in Tampa, I really like Alex Rodriguez. Rays fans hate him. They boo him at their stadium, they refer to him as “A-Fraud” or “A-Roid” on a.m. sports-blather, and I have personally heard them pray to their gods to have him destroyed. And still, each time up to bat, ...
How many baseball players can one buy with $118 million? In 2012, 23 teams funded their entire rosters for less. Only seven teams paid more and only the Yankees committed that much to just four players; Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, C.C. Sabathia, and Mark Teixeira. The previous two World Series champions spent less. To be ...
Brian Cashman admitted in a recent press conference that one of his primary reasons for signing Raul Ibanez (39) during the offseason was so that the younger players would stop calling Derek Jeter “gramps”. When the reporters asked what the other reasons were, he pointed his finger toward the back of the room and shouted ...
