I haven’t posted much this season because there really hasn’t been much to write about. Sure, if I were a professional writer I’d find what to write about but I do this for fun and not for work. But after the last two nights there is finally something fun to write about. Back to back [...]
A lot is made of the grand slam. It’s one of the more exciting plays in an otherwise mostly staid game. It’s the most runs you can score with one swing of the bat. And now Alex Rodriguez has more of them than almost anyone ever with the exception of Lou Gehrig, whom ARod tied [...]
New Era did a great job on this commercial.
Who would have thought I’d write two consecutive posts about Yankee related personalities passing away? I surely didn’t. Yesterday I wrote about world class public address announcer Bob Sheppard’s death. Today it’s owner George Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner succumbed to a massive heart attack this morning. After suffering the heart attack he was rushed to the hospital [...]

Though this blog post by Rob Neyer (from his Sweet Spot blog) is about the Yankees I always find something wonderful in Neyer’s work. In this case it’s mainly in the title of the post (“Sometimes six home runs are just a cigar”).
I got into a mild argument the other day with a relative who is a football Giants fan. The argument was centered a round a comment he made when I mentioned how upset I was on Sunday night when the Jets-Bills game went on so long that my DVR stopped recording before the game was [...]
Dosn’t Joba Chamberlain look just like his mom? Happy mother’s day, Jacqueline Standley (Joba’s mom).
Today is a big day at Yankee camp. Alex Rodriguez will arrive at spring training and hold a press conference regarding last week’s report about steroids use. This is a good move on the Yankees part as it is an attempt to get all the talk of this subject out of the way as soon [...]
Though control of the Yankees has been turned over to his son the legacy of George Steinbrenner lives on. Yesterday the team signed first baseman Mark Teixeira to an 8 year, $180 million contract. This comes on the heals of signing CC Sabathia for 7 years at $161 million and A.J. Burnett for 5 years [...]
