    Who's Saving the Yankees' Season While All Their Old Men Are Out? An Old Man, Naturally

    Nice quip from David Letterman last night: "Martha Stewart says she wants to meet a rich man between the age of 50 and 70. Why doesn't she just date a New York Yankee?" Indeed. And the subs that the Yankees have brought in to get them through a period of recovery from injuries are as old as the gu ... More >>

    C.C. Sabathia Back With A Vengeance. Jeter For MVP?

    Yankees fans breathed a little easier last night with C.C. Sabathia's return. He went 7 1/3 innings in the Yanks' 3-1 victory over Cleveland, gave up four hits and a walk, and, best of all, struck out nine. His ERA has now dropped below 3.50 for the season. Then again, he was pitching against the ... More >>

    With Cliff Lee, Will the Phillies Rotation Be the Best Ever?

    ​Does the acquisition of Cliff Lee give the Philadelphia Phillies the best rotation in baseball history? That's a little premature, but you can certainly make a good argument. Right now, Roy Halliday, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels certainly look to rank with the 1954 Cleveland In ... More >>
