I Am Perfectly OK With Pitchers Throwing At Alex Rodriguez- Bruce’s Thought Of The Day

This isn't the 1st time and i promise it won't be the last where I will take the tough position, perhaps the unpopular position, but in my view the right position. Having said all that I hope pitchers keep throwing at Alex Rodriguez, again and again and again

Dreamland Yankees in 2013

There are so many fantasy scenarios going on with the Yankees it isn't even funny.  It's turned into "Dreamland" in the Bronx.  They aren't just playing baseball, and bad baseball at that.  They are giving people around the game the idea that things are getting better or that a scenario is going to play out soon when it has no chance.   Here are some examples.

Joe Girardi’s Approach With CC Sabathia Must Change

CC Sabathia has thrown over 2,600 innings in the big leagues.  He is 32.  He had a bone spur removed over the offseason.  He has trouble putting guys away with two strikes.  His velocity is down.  At times, his location is hit and miss, especially with his off-speed stuff.  In other words, this isn't 2007 or 2008 anymore, in Cleveland or Milwaukee, when he could carry a team and log a ton of innings.  Hell, it isn't even 2009 or 2010 in New York anymore.
