  2. Derek Jeter's Other All-Time Record

    I'm kind of amazed I haven't heard more about this on the YES network, but maybe I just don't watch enough TV. Derek Jeter is on the verge of becoming the New York Yankees' all-time hits leader, ...

  3. Minnesota Twins Fans Don't Judge a Trade Too Soon

    November 13, 2004 is a date that Twins fans will remember. It's the date they traded A.J. Pierzynski for Joe Nathan, Fransisco Liriano and Boof Bosner. At the time, Pierzynski was a solid, if unspectacular, catcher, having hit ...

  4. I'd Give Stephen Strasburg Whatever He Wants and So Should The Nationals

    Forget the endless debate on whether or not Stephen Strasburg will perform well enough to whatever contract he signs, or declines. Most players drafted don't make an impact on the game, so, even for a talented guy like Strasburg, there's no sure thing...

  5. This "True Yankee" Stuff Has Got To Stop

  6. Joe Mauer Is the American League's Most Valuable Player

    I almost can't believe I'm writing this. I'm a Yankees fan, so if anything, I should have decided last night that Mark Teixeira is the MVP of the American League. Well, he's not. Neither is the power-hitting first baseman for the Twins, Justin Morneau...

  7. Enough With The Sergio Mitre Complaining

    I'm going to come to Sergio Mitre's defense. For weeks now, Yankees' fans have been bemoaning every start by Mitre as proof of managerial incompetence. And, to some extent, they're right in that...

  9. Home Field Turning Into a Must for the Yankees

    Normally, I think there's too much emphasis placed on home-field advantage. Most players and coaches will tell you it only really matters in the last game of a series, and besides, ...

  10. Cole Hamels Should Serve As a Warning for Joba Chamberlain

    As Cole Hamels mysteriously struggles through 2009, Yankee fans that aghast over Joba Chamberlain's innings limit should take note. This is exactly what the Yankees are guarding against. This is where the "Plus 40" rule for young pitchers comes into play.
