MLB Rumors: Will Someone Please Do Something?

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007

So it's mid-December and, aside from one mega-deal, not much has happened to change the landscape of Major League Baseball. A-Rod went back to the Yankees, Johan Santana is still with the Twins, Erik Bedard is still in Baltimore and Jake Peavy signed a big extension with San Diego. This ...

Joe Torre Is My Hero

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Apparently, our warning yesterday was too late. Not only is Billy Martin not walking through that door to manage the New York Yankees, anyone they hire except for Casey Stengel is a major downgrade. No potential replacement has the experience or the temperament to properly deal with managing that team. ...

Billy Martin Isn’t Walking Through That Door

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Joe Torre should be fired. He managed four world champions, his teams won the American League East in 1996 and then every year from 1998 through 2006, and besides that, he did it all in New York. But he should be fired. The Yankees haven't won the World Series since ...

27 Reasons Sports Suck In August

Yankee Karma’s Gonna Get You

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Though he did pull an interview with Pavano's ex-girlfriend Gia Allemand. Nice.Anyway, the subject of "karma" comes up. Allemand says ...

Dude, Weak

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

We're usually not fans of the Bob Brenly school of "unwritten rules" and all, but this story kind of made us rethink our stance. Mitch Hilligoss, a 21-year-old third base prospect for the Yankees, had a 35-game hitting streak going into Wednesday night's game. That tied him for the second ...

Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind, Out Of Organization

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

Okay, so this makes two straight Yankees posts and, considering we hate the Yankees, that's kind of a lot. But we couldn't pass up another opportunity to mention how they're the worst franchise in baseball with the worst fans and the worst media covering their every move. We start first ...
