Jeter Deal Leaves Yankess With $80M

NEW YORK (AP) — Derek Jeter's new contract has increased the Yankees' luxury tax payroll to $97.71 million for seven signed players next year. That leaves leaving New York with about $80 million to spend on the rest of its roster if the team wants to get under the 2014 luxury tax threshold

Bad Timing For Giants To Be 0-4

The New York Giants were tied with the Kansas City Chiefs more than halfway through the second quarter, 7-7, but that was all the G-Men would do offensively on the day.

The Chiefs went to a perfect 4-0 with a 23-7 victory over the Giants, who are now 0-4 for the first time in the Tom Coughlin era

Yankees Off-Season Questions Are Many

I'm so glad that the Yankees are finally mathematically eliminated from post-season contention with Thursday night's 8-3 loss to the Rays. With an out-of-this-world management job by Joe Girardi this year the Yanks have been delaying the inevitable for weeks

Colorado Rockies First Base Coach Rene Lachemann Gives Kids Awesome Advice [VIDEO]

Forget A-Rod, steroids and the Yanks losing games. In my mind that's all trivial. There's some good coming out of the MLB and it involves an old time first base coach, kids sitting in the stands and some damn good advice.

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.

Alfonso Soriano Is Coming Home, Traded To The Yankees

I can recall a number of things from my childhood, growing up as an avid sports fan, notably for the New York Yankees. I remember "The Flip Play" by Derek Jeter in the 2001 MLB Playoffs against Oakland, the Yankee Stadium heroics during the 2001 World Series Scott Brosius hitting a big homer off Trevor Hoffman in Game 3 the 1998 World Series against the San Diego Padres and Carl Everett stealing Mike Mussina's potential perfect game at Fenway Park.

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.

Picking greatest Yankees in any category is like splitting hairs or flipping a coin or picking the most ripe apple in the bunch during the months of September and October in the Northeast.  How about the most beloved Yankee of all-time?  Just as tough as the next question when regarding the pinstripes, but I have narrowed it (I think) down to a Top 5.  Enjoy.
