Matt Harvey Done For Season, Placed On Disabled List

The 2013 regular season for the New York Mets began with news of Johan Santana needing to have a second surgery on his throwing shoulder, putting him on the disabled list for the entire year. In a very strange way, it is only appropriate that a season of high hopes for the future of the organization came crashing down with troubling news this afternoon about their new star pitcher.

Which Contract Is Worse: Albert Pujols or Alex Rodriguez? [POLL]

When I take a look at the two men I am questioning in this debate, I honestly never thought I'd have to ask this question. The track record speaks for itself with Albert Pujols - he was the ultimate model of consistency for a decade with the St. Louis Cardinals and one of very few players I would have ever considered giving the kind of money he eventually received from the LA Angels, which was $240 million over the course of a 10-year deal.

Braves Outfielder Jason Heyward Makes Game-Winning Diving Catch [VIDEO]

On Monday afternoon, I heard Bruce Jacobs discuss how one of his dogs got "skunked" over the weekend and he doesn't understand how someone is supposed to keep tomato juice in their house to cure the stench. He also dealt out some trash talk for Atlanta Braves fans, in preparation for this week's 4-game series at Citi Field.

Derek Jeter Goes Back On Disabled List

During his 2013 season debut last Thursday, Yankees captain Derek Jeter seemed to be playing well as the designated hitter, until he was suddenly pulled for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 8th inning. After the game, we learned that Jeter felt something during his final at-bat and took a precautionary MRI, which he acted very nonchalant about during his post-game press conference.

A Public Confession: I Can’t Watch Baseball On TV Anymore!

As I have gone through early adulthood and now sit at 25 years old, I have discovered a number of things: my regretful inability to grow meaningful facial hair, my reestablished love for the NHL and my tremendous disdain for New York State politicians (just read my recent articles about Mixed Martial Arts as a reference point). However, the greatest of these observations is the one I have decided to address in this article: my growing disinterest for watching Major League Baseball games on television.

Pirates Rookie Tony Sanchez Gets First MLB Hit Stuck In Scoreboard [VIDEO]

Over the course of the last few season, we have seen our fair share of young guys make an immediate impact in Major League Baseball. The first 2 guys that you probably think of are Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, but there's a number of others like Matt Harvey, Yasiel Puig and Zoilo Almonte.

Yankees Sweep Cleveland With 6-4 Victory

After a very difficult week against the Mets and Red Sox that garnered only 1 win out of 7 games, the Yankees entered this week determined to bounce back, and they did exactly that with a 3-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians to wrap up their 8-game home-stand. Led by a complete game performance from CC Sabathia, the Yankees took the final game 6-4 earlier this afternoon and now head to the West Coast for a week and a half.

Yankees Lose Again To Mets, Look To Avoid Sweep Tonight

After spending the last two weeks at or near the top of the American League East, the New York Yankees have really gone and outdone themselves during this four-game losing streak. Last night, the Mets came into Yankee Stadium and didn't miss a beat from the previous two nights, taking out the Yankees by a score of 9-4.

Yankees Look To Keep Creating Separation In AL East

Entering last weekend, the New York Yankees sat atop the American League East to begin a crucial stretch in this young 2013 season, with 12 of their next 16 games against all 4 divisional foes. The team started with two convincing wins on Friday and Saturday against the Blue Jays, only to see Mother Nature postpone the potential sweep on Sunday. So with just 5 games of separation from Boston, Tampa Bay and Baltimore (all of which have records over .500), it was time for the Yankees to start an 8-game road trip - the first 6 taking place against the Orioles and Rays.

Hafner Carries Yankees To Victory Over Toronto, 5-4

Going into the 2013 MLB season, I would have called you crazy if you said the older free agents signed during the off-season would help carry the Yankees to a good start and maintain relevancy in the American League East. However, that has been exactly the case, and this afternoon was another perfect example of that.

Yankees Get Comeback Victory Over Arizona, 4-3

After the first 6 innings of tonight's game at Yankee Stadium, it looked as if the Diamondbacks were cruising to an easy victory and setting up a "rubber game" in the series finale on Thursday. But as John Sterling would probably say, "that's why the game of baseball is 9 innings," and now the Diamondbacks will look to avoid a sweep when they take the field again.

MLB Celebrates Jackie Robinson Day [POLL]

Today is very special to Major League Baseball, as the league holds their annual celebration of Jackie Robinson Day. During every season on April 15th, MLB commemorates the anniversary of Robinson breaking the color barrier when he made his debut for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. This season is particularly special, as the movie "42" was just released last Friday and had the best box office sales in movie theaters over the weekend.
