The Yankees – Red Sox rivalry is one of the best in sports and it is also one of the most heated. Yankees and Red Sox fans genuinely dislike each other and this makes for a lot of trash talk when the teams Read the rest of this entry »
With the current baseball season coming to its halfway point, many New York Yankees fans are wondering who they are going to target next year. New York has always been the talk of the town due to their massive payroll size. With a few critical needs in the upcoming 2013 baseball season, here are some names that the Yankees may be targeting:
Cole Hamels: This Philadelphia stud has been pitching lights out this year. Probably demanding more than $20 Read the rest of this entry »
The New York Yankees have long been esteemed and regarded as baseball royalty. How many pennants have they won? Is it twenty-six World Series titles or twenty seven? Their level of success is absurd. The New York Yankees, however, are no fun to watch. They lack the type of spirit and workhorse magic that other baseball teams inspire. Every single year the Yankees have the highest payroll in the major leagues; it tops off somewhere above 200 million dollars. How is that a level playing field? Most teams have a tiny fraction of that Read the rest of this entry »
“Some men have all the luck,’ sung Rod Stewart. According to legend, Stewart was singing about Mick Jagger but today he could be singing about A-rod, aka Alex Rodriquez. A-rod, 35 and already makes more money than the combined GNP of South America, has hit home runs with some of most sought after women of this generation, including Madonna, Golden Globe winning actress Kate Hudson and his latest flame, actress Cameron Diaz, 38.
If one placed photos of Diaz and Hudson side by side, it-s tempting to think the two had been separated at birth. Perhaps A-rod just gets his Read the rest of this entry »

Well after another series with the Boston Red Sox the Yankees Starting Pitching Lets Them Down Again. The rivalry between the two teams has not lost any steam over the years. The Yankees which for years stood at the helm of the Eastern Division seem to have lost some of their fervor and their sportsmanship. The team may have forgotten how to play for the love of the sport, or maybe they forgot the good sportsmanship that makes a team a happy place to be. Read the rest of this entry »
There is little argument as to who the most popular player on the Yankees is, and do not think for a second that Derek Jeter is not aware of this. He has used his popularity to gain a 189 million dollar, ten year contract. But with that contract about to expire, it will be interesting to see if his popularity will overcome his lack of performance on the field.
