    Let Us Now Harshly Mock the At-Bat Music of the Yankees and Mets

    Chris Carter had a short career in the major leagues. He hit below league-average in 113 at bats from 2008-2010. He played in Japan the past two years. His career wasn't that notable except for one thing: In 2010 with the Mets, Carter's at-bat music was Rick Derringer's "Real American." As in Hulk H ... More >>

    The Athlete Rap Albums We Should've Gotten in the '90s

    There was a time in the mid '90s where the idea of an athlete releasing a hip-hop album was a radically new concept. It seems almost quaint now; athletes are still putting out rap music today and athletes will be putting out rap music for the foreseeable future, that's just how branding works. But t ... More >>

    Things are Beginning to Seem Desperate in Yankees Universe

    "I'm surprised," a disingenuous Hal Steinbrenner told the press yesterday in Arizona, "to hear that there's anger if you see what we've done this offseason." Well, I would just call it anger, Hal. There's also a lot of frustration, derision, and lethargy out there. "We've signed three or four of th ... More >>

    Bidding a Fond Farewell to Hideki Matsui

    Hideki Matsui announced his retirement from professional baseball yesterday, and though he hadn't played in pinstripes since 2009, the news must have made Yankee fans everywhere, from New York to Tokyo, a little wistful. For one thing, we never really got to see Hideki at his peak, the guy who pl ... More >>

    Yanks Lose. Here's All The Baseball I Want To Talk About This Year

    Speculation on what caused the train wreck that ended last night with the Yankee's 8-1 loss to Detroit is useless, so I'm going to empty out all the notes I took during this year's ALCS and see what sense can be made of it. First off, this is the third time the Yankees have lost a postseason series ... More >>

    C.C., I Was Just Kidding -- You CAN Win The Big One

    If you didn't stay up last night to see it, you missed a classic. Russell martin -- or "Thank God For Russell" Martin, as he's known in my house -- belted a long shot off Jim Johnson in the 9th inning to give the Yankees 3-2 lead. And then it seemed like everyone in the Yankees lineup got a hit. E ... More >>

    Yanks Can't Afford To Lose Game One

    On paper, it looks like a mismatch, but Yankees fans who have watched their team sink while the Orioles soared over the last third of the season know that this isn't so. In overall batting, the Yanks lead by 18 points, .265 (5th best in the American League) to the Orioles .247 (No. 10), and in r ... More >>

    Trade Deadline Comes And Goes. Yanks Do Nada

    Remember just a few years ago when everyone thought it was so unfair that the Yankees had the money and resources to make all the big deals just before the trade deadline? The haves picking the pockets of the have-nots, and all that. Well, it sure does look as if the Yankees are no longer one of th ... More >>
