Yankees Must Dump Alex Rodriguez’s Contract Immediately

If anyone can find Hank and Hal Steinbrenner, tell them priority #1 should be to get rid of Alex Rodriguez's contract.  It is the ultimate albatross in baseball and keeping the Yankees from doing so many things, such as getting below the luxury tax, building an actual team and being free of tabloid nonsense reserved for clowns.

Yankees Don’t Look the Same Without Derek Jeter

Since 1996, the face of the most famous American sports team has been one man.  The shortstop.  The eventual captain.  #2.  The future Hall of Famer.  Derek Sanderson Jeter.  2013 seems like such a strange year without him.

Ivan Nova Could Be Heading Down Phil Hughes Boulevard

The once promising trio of Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy and Phil Hughes was supposed to be pitching greatness in pinstripes for 10 years.  Except that it never happened.  Ian Kennedy was traded to Arizona, the Yanks messed with Joba so much that he never regained his true set-up stuff and Phil Hughes became a wait-and-see ballgame that ended 100 innings ago.  But Ivan Nova was the savior.  Until he wasn't.

Celtics-Knicks Will Be A Physical Grudge Match

The Knicks took game one 85-78.  But what did we already learn about this series?  That every player, not just Carmelo Anthony, is going to have to earn their points at both ends of the floor.  The playoffs are different.  Good defenses are aplenty.  It is like facing big time starting pitching in baseball's October.

“42″ Review

It was long overdue.  The story of Jackie Robinson, the man who integrated baseball in 1947, changed sports and America forever, and had the backing of crusty Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey along the way.  But as they say, better late than never.  And it was indeed a late home run in extra innings in the theatre.

The Andy Pettitte Factor

It's time to start wondering just how good the Yankees will be this year based on three factors.  The lineup hitting in timely spots, health and the depth of the pitching staff.  Andy Pettitte arrives in the last two categories and could realistically be the difference in New York making the playoffs and winning the division.
