    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 >>

    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 >>

    Phil Hughes' Meltdown Latest Sign Of Trouble For Yanks

    Yankee fans, the realistic ones anyway, must have watched last night's 6-5 loss to Detroit and understood that the team is in serious trouble. There's a whole lot of things going wrong, from injuries to Curtis Granderson's sudden inability to fathom the strike zone. But the worst, by far, is the c ... More >>

    Don't Worry About Andy Pettitte -- Worry About Tex

    You could tell that it was a special day at Yankee Stadium when the Bleacher Creatures broke from tradition and started a chant for Andy Pettitte which got most of the 41,000-plus to chime in. I don't recall the Creatures ever chanting the starting pitcher's name when they do the first inning lineup ... More >>

    Yesterday Marks Particularly Rough Day For The New York Yankees

    How does yesterday rank with the worst days in Yankee history? Well, yesterday the Yankees learned that, realistically for all intents and purposes, their hopes for the 2012 World Series were over. They also got a pretty good idea that the rest of this decade doesn't look too good either. Mark Fe ... More >>

    How "Perfect" Was Philip Humber's Perfect Game?

    You got a guy who is 29 years old and making a comeback from Tommy John surgery - and, to top it off, hasn't won a game this year. He throws a perfect game and nobody - and I mean nobody, including me - wants to put a damper on it. (Did I mention that his wife is nine months pregnant?) All I want ... More >>

    Michael Pineda: Let's Hold The Worry

    What a difference four miles per hour can make. Actually, three. If Michael Pineda's fastball down in Tampa was slamming into catcher Russell Martin's mitt at just 95 mph -- and I say "just" because it was known last year to hit 96 and sometimes 97 -- Pineda would not be on the verge of pushing Ma ...

    Fright Night for Yankee Fans

    If I were a Yankees fan, I'd be afraid — very afraid. Of course, as I've said all season, whenever I look at the pitching staff I'm afraid. But in addition to being afraid all season, I've also been wrong all season, so maybe I'm wrong now. Maybe there's something I'm not seeing here, but the ... More >>

    Yankees Post Mortem: Dissecting 2010's Corpse

    ​No point right now in looking into the Yankees chances of getting Cliff Lee -- though offhand I'd say the odds are about the same as they were for the Knicks in landing LeBron James. There's also not much point wondering what the Yankees need to do to pull themselves together next season. The ... More >>

    J.J. Putz Says Mets Didn't "Really" Give Him a Physical, Suggests Team Told Him to Hide Injury

    Everyone was very excited when the Mets acquired Mariners reliever J.J. Putz at the end of 2008. "If J.J. Putz is healthy," said ESPN's Keith Law, "the Mets got one of the best closers on the market." But apparently Putz wasn't so healthy; he didn't have a great 2009 ("Putz looks hurt," wrote Dave ...

Not likely, says Gary Wadler, "an internist and member of the World Anti-Doping Agency." The cyst was discovered after Rodriguez experienced some ... More >>

    A-Rod: Shot Up With "Bole," Was Young and Stupid, Never Took HGH

    At his press conference in Tampa today, Alex Rodriguez said he didn't know that the substance he took back in 2003-2005 -- which he identified as something known in "the streets of DR" as "Bole," presumably the anabolic steroid Primobolan -- was a steroid.
