There are crimes and then there are crimes that seem to reach beyond the scope of humanity. This is one of those cases. The monster in this instance is an ex-major league pitcher. Former New York Yankees right handed pitcher Sergio Mitre is going to be behind bars for a very long time, but not long enough for many.
As Mets fans held their breath for the last few weeks, wondering how new owner Steve Cohen would flash his wallet and buy the Amazin's some much needed pitching help, especially hours after finding out that Superman Jacob deGrom would be sidelined until September, that news never materialized. The Mets made a trade but was it really for a player that they needed or did they just need to make a trade?
Yankees GM Brian Cashman is wheeling and dealing like his job depends on it. Maybe it does and the same goes for his manager. Though both will be quickly employed if let go, it is not the same as being at the head of the New York Yankees organization. Early Thursday evening, Cashman added a power hitting first baseman, with four Gold Gloves and a World Series ring to his line-up.

The New York Yankees made a move to bolster their farm system but had to give up Aroldis Chapman to do that. Did the Yankees get enough in return or was this a bad move by the Yankees? Levack and Wolf ask Myrtle Beach Pelicans voice Scott Kornberg...
The Colorado Rockies just finished their mini 2-game sweep of the New York Yankees. Needless to say the team was pretty pumped considering they are one of the worst in the league and were expected to be swept by the Yankees instead.
As they prepared to board their flight to Miami to face the Marlins this weekend, the team posed for a picture, but not just any picture...
The Chicago Cubs finally lost a game for the first time in 25 starts dating back to last season in a game that Jake Arrieta started. Arrieta and the Cubs tied the record by Kris Medlan and the Atlanta Braves (23 consecutive starts).
After being relieved by Clayton Richard to start the 8th inning, the Dodgers scored all five of their runs once Arrieta came out of the game to hand the Cubs a 5-0 los
The reigning NL MVP has proved how much of a threat he can be when he steps into the batters-box. Yesterday, the Chicago Cubs figured out a way to negate his slugging ability. Sort of.
During their 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals in 13 innings, the Cubs walked the Nats slugger six times while he was also hit by a pitch, making him the first player to reach base seven times in MLB history wit
Cubs ace Jake Arrieta was lights out last night. The hard-throwing righty threw his second career no-hitter in the Cubs 16-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds and the first in the MLB this season.
Arrieta achieved the feat on 119 pitches that included 4 walks and 6 strikeouts...
