Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx? We Hope So, For the Yankees

Finally, the Red Sox catch a break. We hope. The New York Yankees “Core Four” (Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera), are set to appear on this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated. The SI cover has been known to jinx and bring unfortunate situations to whoever fills it. To some, this idea […]

Teixeira, Jeter Headline AL Golden Gloves; Youkilis Robbed?

The American League Golden Glove Award was handed out on Tuesday for the top-fielding player of each position based on how well each player performed throughout the year. Atop the list were Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira of the New York Yankees. Jeter won his fourth at shortstop while Teixeira won his third at first […]

Photos from the 2009 World Series

Images: Yankees Win 27th World Series So, the Yankees won the whole darn thing. They have 27 World Championships, more than any other franchise in sports history. Will another Yankee dynasty begin? Well, that’s a question for another day. Before moving forward, we must look back. Nothing captures sports better than still images, and below […]

Handicapping the AL MVP Race

Seeing as there’s less than a month left to the season, we can begin to predict what the award winners are going to look like. The one I’d like to take a look at is the AL MVP race, and this is because it will divide old school baseball fans and more sabermetrically-inclined fans for […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 21 (8-24 – 8-30)

We now enter Week 22, which is the final week of the regular season for Yahoo! fantasy baseball. I have secured a playoff spot in two leagues and am hanging on for dear life in another. The ironic thing is that in my fourth league, where I currently reside in 11th place, I thought I […]

Jim Rice Calls out Manny, A-Rod, and Jeter as Bad Influences, Later Retracts

Former Red Sox player and Hall of Famer, Jim Rice, currently finds himself amidst a self-created controversy for singling out Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter as bad influences on America’s youth while at the Little League World Series this past weekend. Rice compared current MLB players to those of his generation, citing that […]

Troy Tulowitzki a Top SS in 2010?

With the playoffs around the corner and the trade deadline passed it is about that time to take a look back at the 2009 season as a whole. It has been a season full of injuries to top players (Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Brandon Webb, Jake Peavy just to name a few). So I decided […]

Beckett No Match for Sabathia, Sox Lose 8-4

The Yankees out-homered the Red Sox Sunday night in an 8-4 loss, bumping Boston down to 7.5 games behind the first-place Yanks. In a pitching match-up between CC Sabathia and Josh Beckett, Beckett was just unable to match Sabathia’s strong outing. Beckett gave up a career-high five home runs, including one by Derek Jeter on […]

How to Fix the World Baseball Classic

Now that the World Baseball Classic’s second tournament is finished, we can reflect on what has worked about it and changes that should be made to improve it. I have noted my issues with it in the past, but thanks to four days in Florida at an uncle’s place with nothing to do at night, […]

TGIF: 2009 SS Rankings

The SS position never used to be a source of offense. Instead, it was always a defense-first area. Now it is not uncommon to get your 20 HR power instead of your Gold Glove from the left side of the infield. The Ozzie Smiths would not have a place on your roster, but today with […]

Sox, Lowell Survive the Rain

The Red Sox continued to their winning ways against the Yankees and took game two of this four-game weekend series in the Bronx, winning 6-4. Mike Lowell and Kevin Youkilis provided the offense today with a home run and a strange triple. Josh Beckett also pitched a decent game for his eighth win of the […]
