Soriano-Reynolds Power Yanks Past Boston
You have to wonder if the Boston Red Sox are starting to look behind them. At the Rays. The Orioles. And now the Yankees.
The Yanks pound Boston in game 1 of their weekend series in Boston 10-3 behind the pitching of Andy Pettitte and the power of Alfonso Soriano and newly acquired Mark Reynolds...
The Detroit Tigers Acquire A Closer And His Name Is Jose Veras
Much to my chagrin the Detroit Tigers, desperate for a closer,have acquired that closer and his name wasn't Bobby Parnell. Instead Detroit made a deal with Houston and traded for the Astros closer, Jose Veras.
I have been advocating the Mets deal Parnell to a desperate team, a team that is close…
This Has To Be The End For Andy Pettitte In The Bronx
No one will ever forget the postseason wins, the bulldog mentality, the cap set down just above the eyebrows as the cutter dives in on righties and away from lefties.  No one will forget saving the bacon in the Bronx time after time after time, nor will they forget outdueling John Smoltz in the…
Orb’s Triple Crown Chances
Orb won the Kentucky Derby.  Right after that, whenever any horse wins, you will hear horse racing fans say, "Well, this horse has a great chance to win the Triple Crown."  Well of course it does.  You have to win the Derby in order to win The Preakness in order to w…
Young Pitching Tougher To Develop Now More Than Ever
Tim Lincecum.  Remember him?  He won two CY Young awards back-to-back in 2008 and 2009 at age 24 and 25.  Now he can barely stay in the Giants' rotation.  Phil Hughes?  Bust at age 28.  Ivan Nova won 16 games in 2011 and hasn't been heard from since.  Ricky Romero was supposed to be the ace of the B…
Who’s The Best Team In Baseball [POLL]
April is over.  May is in.  The Red Sox had a heck of a month.  The Yankees went 16-10 to the surprise of some.  The Rangers and Tigers have proved already that they are most likely division winners.  The Braves' Upton brothers carried the load...
Yankees Try to Tackle the Tribe
The New York Yankees, with the depleted roster we all know by now, opened up 2013 losing two of three to Boston and two of three to Detroit.  BUT, the last game against Detroit was a 7-0 win and the Yanks downed ace Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia rebounded for a win, so the momentum is there to ri…
How the Yankees Should Attack Justin Verlander
One of the tallest orders in baseball is facing an ace who has an array of pitches and can go deep into the game.  Add to that someone of Justin Verlander's ability who is in complete physical and mental control.  The Yankees have that task today.
Yankees Fall In Detroit, 8-3
You could argue that if you were to give a theme to the 2013 season for the New York Yankees, it would probably be "the good, the bad and the ugly." This afternoon's game at Comerica Park in Detroit was a perfect example of that theme, as the Yankees dropped the opener of a th…
What to Watch This Weekend
There is plenty to choose from this weekend.  This is one of the best and busiest times on the sports calendar.  And you generally get that way when seasons change.  So, here you have it.  
Choice one:  Duh.  Final Four in Atlanta...
