What's more boring than low scoring games? Watching the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series every year
Today's opening day starting line-up blast from the past. We wrap-up our series for the baseball season of 1966. The team that wins the American League pennant and then the World Series would be the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles have a record of 97-63, under manager Hank Bauer. They then sweep the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. The O's draw 1.203 million, which is 3rd in the American League. The Orioles are lead by the Triple Crown and MVP, Frank Robinson. Robinson has 49 homeruns and 122 rbis. Boog Powell (109) and Brooks Robinson (100) both drive in over 100 runs. Hall Of Famer, Louie Aparicio has a O's best 25 steals. The ace of the staff, with 15 wins, would be the 20 year old Jim Palmer. The 38 year old Stu Miller has the Orioles best 18 saves. The O's open the season with 2 wins in Boston. The Orioles 1st home game would be in front of 35,624 against the New York Yankees. The Orioles lost to the Yankees, when Fritz Peterson throws a complete game 3-2. Luis Aparicio-SS Curt Blefary-LF Fran ...
I know how everyone likes to say that the media doesn't respect the Giants. Well guess what? If we win the World Series it's going to get a lot worse, we'll actually be the first real dynasty in baseball since the Joe Torre led New York Yankees. We will be the most hated team in baseball. Mark my words.
I was 15 in 1976, up until that time time I never saw a team I rooted for win anything. I was 8 in 1969, the year The Mets and Jets won it all...and I remember not ( "not" is being kind ) liking them at all!!! I was a New York Net fan and I NEVER liked The Rangers even though I loved hockey. At 15 in 1976, I never knew The Yankees or Giants to be anywhere but last place or close to the bottom. Since then, however, not one of the teams I root for ( The Hockey Gods sent The Devils to my home state since ) has gone more than 8 years without a Championship. The New York Giants, 4-Time Super Bowl Champions. The New Jersey Devils, 3-Time Stanley Cup Champions. The New York Yankees, 7-time World Champions ( what I've seen ) , and The Nets, 2-Time ABA Champions. ( The Nets, NJ to NY to NJ, to NY., complicated ). I have NO IDEA what I'm trying to say here other than for the first 15 years of my life, ALL my teams sucked, but I loved them, they were mine!!! So if and when The Royals or Orioles win the World Series ...

Today's Highlight in History: On Oct. 1, 1964, the Free Speech Movement began at the University of California, Berkeley, as students spontaneously protested the arrest of Berkeley alumnus Jack Weinberg, who'd refused to identify himself to campus police as he sat behind a table promoting the Congress of Racial Equality.

Notable Native Americans Jacoby Ellsbury Jacoby McCabe Ellsbury born September 11, 1983) is an American Professional Baseball center fielder for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball. Ellsbury was first drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 23rd round of the 2002 MLB Draft, but did not sign. He then was drafted 23rd overall by the Boston Red Sox in 2005, after playing three years at Oregon State. Ellsbury is the only Red Sox player in history to be a member of the 30–30 club, a feat he accomplished on September 25, 2011, against the Yankees.

Henry Louis "Lou" or "Buster"[1] Gehrig (June 19, 1903 – June 2, 1941) was an American baseball first baseman who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees (1923–1939). Gehrig was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, a trait which earned him his nickname "The Iron Horse". He finished with a career Batting Average of .340, an on-base percentage of .447, and a slugging percentage of .632, and he tallied 493 Home Runs and 1,995 runs batted in (RBIs). A seven-time All-Star[2] and six-time World Series Champion, Gehrig won the Triple Crown in 1934[3] and was twice named the American League's (AL) Most Valuable Player. Gehrig was the first MLB player to have his uniform number retired, and he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939. A native of New York City and attendee of Columbia University, Gehrig signed with the Yankees in 1923. He set several Major League records during his career,[4] including the most career Grand Slams (23) (since bro ...
ENTREPRENEURS WHOSE PERSEVERANCE WILL INSPIRE YOU. (Entrepreneur 4) George Steinbrenner Before “The Boss” assumed ownership of the New York Yankees, he owned a basketball franchise called the Cleveland Pipers. The Pipers were part of the American Basketball League, and in 1960, under Steinbrenner’s helm, the franchise went bankrupt. When he eventually took over the Yankees, Steinbrenner’s struggles didn’t end. Most baseball fans will remember the team’s drought in the 1980s and early 1990s. As the team suffered, Steinbrenner was often criticized for his executive decisions, which included questionable trades and frequent changes to the Manager position. Though his methods were controversial, Steinbrenner stuck to his guns, and it paid off. The Yankees made an impressive six World Series appearances from 1996-2003, and remain Major League Baseball’s most profitable team year after year. Steinbrenner is known for his shrewd business tactics, but he’s also not afraid to put his money where hi ...
Roster reset! How Trade Deadline Impacted Boston's 2014 Plans..ARTICLE: The Red Sox no longer found the status quo to be acceptable. Boston continued to overhaul its roster Thursday by making a flurry of moves before Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline. The Red Sox consummated four trades with four different teams involving 11 players. The Sox, who already traded away pitchers Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront in the last week, enter August on the heels of six trades that significantly altered the look and feel of the defending World Series Champions. The club that takes the field Friday night against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park will be almost unrecognizable, right down to starting pitcher Anthony Ranaudo, who will make his Major League debut. Sure, some core pieces remain in place. But Boston’s final 54 games just became a lot more interesting. Let’s dissect a projected version of the Red Sox’s revamped roster to see where everyone fits in. It’s a tricky situation — and per ...
In a nutshell: New York Yankees hitting sucketh (save Gardy and the occasional Tex). ARENA --- Sports: How Far the Rivalry Has Fallen --- The Yankees and Red Sox Have Slipped So Much, Their Games Are Shorter By Brian Costa and Daniel Barbarisi 1 August 2014 The Wall Street Journal (Copyright (c) 2014, Dow Jones & Company, Inc.) Boston -- The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, whose rivalry was once hailed as the greatest in sports, have fallen on hard times. Less than a year removed from winning the World Series, the Red Sox sit in last place in the American League East, a position that prompted them to unload pitchers Jon Lester and John Lackey in separate trades Thursday. The once-fearsome Yankees, now barely above .500, have been reduced to scrapping with the likes of the Kansas City Royals for the second AL wild-card spot. But as the Yankees and Red Sox meet for a three-game series at Fenway Park this weekend, they are losing more than their traditional relevance. They are even losing one of the ...

The New York Yankees have won 27 World Series Championships, the most of any team in major-league baseball
Just a reminder.eighty two years ago in 1932 the New York Yankees, with the slugging of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth took four straight from the Cubs in the World Series, this is the series the "Babe" is alleged to have called the shot putting Charlie Roots fast ball into the bleachers
Thurman Lee Munson was born on June 7, 1947. He was a Major League Baseball catcher who played his entire 11-year Professional Baseball career with the New York Yankees (1969–1979). He is the only Yankee to win both the Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player awards. Considered the "heart and soul" of the Yankees, Munson was named the first team captain since Lou Gehrig. He led the Yankees to three consecutive World Series appearances from 1976 to 1978, and two consecutive World Series Championships from 1977 to 1978. His career stats include: • Seven time All-Star (1971, 1973–1978) • Two time World Series Champion (1977, 1978) • AL MVP (1976) • AL Rookie of the Year (1970) • Three time Gold Glove Award (1973–1975) • New York Yankees captain (1976–1979) • Career Batting Average .292 • 1,558 Hits • 113 Home Runs • 701 RBI • New York Yankees retired Munson died on August 2, 1979, while practicing landing his Cessna Citation at Akron-Canton Airport.

Longtime baseball fixture Don Zimmer passed away at 83. Don Zimmer wasn't a fixture in baseball forever. It just seemed that way. He played alongside Jackie Robinson on the only Brooklyn Dodgers team to win the World Series. He coached Derek Jeter on the New York Yankees' latest dynasty. And his manager once was the illustrious Casey Stengel. For 66 years, Zimmer was a most popular presence at ballparks all over, a huge chaw often filling his cheek. Everyone in the game seemed to know him, and love him. Zimmer was still working for the Tampa Bay Rays as a senior adviser when he died Wednesday at 83 in a hospital in nearby Dunedin. He had been in a rehabilitation center since having seven hours of heart surgery in mid-April. ''Great baseball man. A baseball lifer. Was a mentor to me,'' teary-eyed Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Zimmer started out as a minor league infielder in 1949, hitting powerful shots that earned him the nickname ''Popeye.'' He went on to enjoy one of the longest-lasting careers in b ...

Featured here is a graphite pencil illustration I created of another beloved Pittsburgh landmark. Forbes Field, nicknamed “The House of Thrills” was a baseball park in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. It served as the third home of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the first home of the Steelers, as well as the University of Pittsburgh football team. The stadium was named after British general, John Forbes who fought in the French & Indian War and named the city of Pittsburgh in 1758. The Pirates won three World Series titles while at Forbes Field in 1909, 1925 and 1960. In 1921, it was the first live radio broadcast of a MLB game in the United States. Forbes Field was the location of one of the greatest moments in Sports History. In the final game of the 1960 Word Series, Bill Mazeroski earned immortal fame by hammering a dramatic game winning walk-off Home Run over the left field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning against the New York Yankees. My dad enjoyed going to this ballpark with his fathe ...

MLB Predictions 2014: Projecting the Final Standings By Joe Giglio , Featured Columnist 1. Boston Red Sox 2. Tampa Bay Rays 3. New York Yankees 4. Baltimore Orioles 5. Toronto Blue Jays Money can't buy happiness in the American League East. After spending $503 million on offseason acquisitions, the New York Yankees are the story of this division heading into spring training. Unfortunately for their fans, it's hard to take an honest look at the roster and peg them for 90-plus wins right now. If Masahiro Tanaka and Jacoby Ellsbury, respectively, perform up to Cy Young and MVP standards, a different picture could emerge by October. For now, the team is only slightly better than the group that won 85 games last season. The Boston Red Sox had a quiet winter but return the nucleus of a team that dominated the regular season and captured a World Series in October. A step back from excellence could occur, but not enough to knock this squad below the 90-win range. In a division without a truly great team, that cou ...
I DIDN'T COME HERE TO READ It was the World Series and the New York Yankees were hosting the Milwaukee Braves. Hank Aaron stepped into the batter's box only to be greeted by the ceaseless chatter of Yogi Berra: "Henry, you're holding that bat wrong. You're supposed to hold it so you can read the trademark." Aaron never spoke a word. As the next pitch crossed the plate, the Home Run king put the ball into the left-field bleachers. After rounding the bases and tagging up at home plate, he looked at the cheerless Yogi Berra and said, "I didn't come up here to read." How often do we allow distractions to take focus off of our spiritual goals? I'm not talking about distractions that are dripping with the venom of wickedness, but distractions from those things in this life that are good in themselves and which provide us a measure of joy, happiness, and satisfaction. For instance, those of us who have children know how busy our life becomes when beseball/softball season rolls around! Life can become chaotic ...

New York Yankees captain and shortstop Derek Jeter has announced he will retire at the end of the 2014 season. In his career (which he spent entirely with the Yankees, a real rarity these days), he was named the AL Rookie of the Year in 1995 and went on to be a five-time World Series Champion, a World Series MVP in 2000 and a 13-time All Star. He is surely a first-ballot Hall Of Famer and definitely one of the all-time greats of the sport.

Garagiola turned to broadcasting following his retirement as a player, first calling Cardinals radio broadcasts on KMOX from 1955 to 1962. As an announcer, Garagiola is best known for his almost 30-year association with NBC television. He began doing national baseball broadcasts for the network in 1961 (teaming with Bob Wolff). Additionally, Garagiola called several World Series on NBC Radio in the 1960s, teaming with a number of announcers including By Saam and George Kell. After a stint doing New York Yankees games from 1965 to 1967 that saw him call Mickey Mantle's 500th Home Run, Garagiola returned to broadcasting NBC baseball, initially as the host of the pre-game show The Baseball World of Joe Garagiola and then as a play-by-play announcer beginning in 1974. Garagiola alternated play-by-play duties with Curt Gowdy on NBC until 1976, when he assumed the role full-time. He teamed with color commentator Tony Kubek from 1976 to 1982; in 1983, he shifted to color commentary as Vin Scully joined the netwo ...

Let's go back in time, the year 1994. Baseball was in the midst of a strike that had cancelled the rest of the regular season, the playoffs, and ultimately the World Series. The strike of 1994 left the game reeling. The diehard fans were hurt, but would no doubt come back to watch the game they loved. The casual fans, who were using baseball as a way to hurry the football season along, didn't have to wait much longer for the NFL season to be in full swing. When baseball came back for the 1995 season, there's no doubt the stadiums would be feeling the effects of the strike well into the season. Attendance wasn't where the owners would've hoped it would be. While the game was still as exciting as ever to the baseball enthusiast, the average fan of the sport felt betrayed. Now let's fast forward to 1998. There were 2 main things that drew the attention of baseball fans. The first was the New York Yankees chase of most wins in a season, which they achieved with 114 regular season victories. The 2nd and no dou ...
Classic pages from a 1927 Kansas City Blues scorebook. I love the old ads, including passenger train service on the Milwaukee Railroad and the Kansas City Ice Company. Pictured in the lineup section is Blues player Lawton "Whitey" Witt, who was in his last year of Professional Baseball. Prior to playing with the minor league Blues, he spent ten years (1916-1926) in the majors with the Philadelphia A's, New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Robins (who would become the Dodgers). He played with the Yankees in the 1922 and 1923 World Series along with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. He was with the Yankees at the inaugural game of the "new" Yankee Stadium in 1923. Read about his life and career in the following SABR Bio.

Answer: The infamous Curse of the Bambino plagued the Boston Red Sox for 86 long years after they sold Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees in 1920. The Sox were not able to escape the shadow of the "curse" until 2004 when they swept the Cardinals in the 2004 World Series.

"When the New York Yankees outbid the Boston Red Sox for Cuban defector Jose Contreras, they expected the world—or at the very least, a few more World Series rings. When he didn't deliver, he was banished to Chicago. One season later, the big righthander was mowing 'em down for the White Sox, and making the Yankees regret the day they said, "No way, Jose." This is his story…"

All-Star catcher Brian McCann has reached agreement on a five-year, $85 million contract with the New York Yankees, a major first step in an off-season that the club has vowed would be an active one. The agreement was confirmed to USA TODAY Sports by a club official with knowledge of the deal but not authorized to speak publicly, because it is still pending McCann passing a physical examination. McCann's agreement was first reported by Fox Sports. McCann, who turns 30 in February, made seven All-Star appearances in his nine seasons with the Atlanta Braves, and represents a major upgrade behind the plate for the Yankees, who cited financial inflexibility in not re-signing Russell Martin before the 2013 season. Martin signed a two-year, $17 milllion deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Yankees catchers batted .213 with an American League worst eight Home Runs. The Yankees missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008, and they followed that season with a spending spree that greatly aided a World Series ...

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig today honored recently retired New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera with the Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award. The presentation was made at a press conference prior to Game Two of the World Series this evening. This marks only the 13th time that Major League Baseball has ever bestowed the Award, which was created in 1998 to recognize achievements and contributions of historical significance. Rivera is the first recipient of the Award since Ken Griffey, Jr. was honored in 2011. Rivera, who played for the Yankees for his entire 19-year career (1995-2013), posted a Major League-record 652 saves and was a key member of five World Series Championship teams (1996, 1998-2000, 2009). The 13-time American League All-Star, who also set a new Major League record with 952 games finished, was among the top three in voting for the A.L. Cy Young Award on four occasions. One of the most consistent and dominant relievers in Major League history, the Panama native .. ...

Today in WHITE history! On October 8, 1956, New York Yankees right-hander Don Larsen pitches the first no-hitter in the history of the World Series. Even better, it was a Perfect Game--that is, there were no runs, no hits and no errors, and no batter reached first base. Larsen’s performance anchored his team’s third-straight win against their cross-town rivals the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Yanks ended up winning the championship, the last all-New York World Series until 2000, in seven games. Larsen was an uneven pitcher, and before the 1956 championship he was mostly known for being a hard drinker and an enthusiastic carouser. Because of a bad start in the second game of the World Series, he wasn’t even sure he’d pitch another game. In fact, he found out he’d be heading to the mound in Game 5 when he got to the clubhouse on the morning of October 8 and found that manager Casey Stengel had left a ball in his locker, wedged inside his cleat. But that night, in front of a crowd of 61,519 people at Yank ...

The New, Improved, Big-Budget Dodgers Had Better Win the World Series . But as I wrote in 2011, the legend doesn’t really hold up under scrutiny. Even after losing Jason Giambi to free agency (and to the New York Yankees after 2001), the A’s had several players who were in the superstar category; shortstop Miguel Tejada was in fact the league’s MVP for the 2002 season. All-Star third baseman Eric Chavez had 34 Home Runs and drove in 109 runs, and their powerhouse trio of starting pitchers—Tim Hudson, Barry Zito, and Mark Mulder—won 57 games. For some never-explained reason, these five players were scarcely mentioned in Michael Lewis’s book and not at all in the movie. Some of the Athletics’ key players, like Scott Hatteberg, were not acquired at bargain prices; in 2001 Hatteberg was paid a little over $1 million by the Red Sox and over the next three seasons with Oakland he made almost $5 million. Moreover, the 2002 A’s didn’t have an exceptional OBP finishing the in the AL. They won bec ...
Indians Rock Astros 9-2 for Another 4-Game Sweep . Michael Brantley and Michael Bourn had two RBIs apiece as the Cleveland Indians, clinging tightly to a wild-card spot, became the first team in 52 years to post six sweeps of a four-game series in a season with a 9-2 win Sunday over the Houston Astros. The Astros lost their season-high ninth straight. Brantley hit a two-out RBI single in the fourth inning off Erik Bedard (4-12) and Bourn tripled in a four-run sixth as the Indians maintained their slim lead over Texas in the AL wild-card scramble with one week left. Carlos Santana homered for Cleveland. According to STATS, the Indians are the first team since the 1961 New York Yankees to sweep six four-games series. The Yankees went on to win the World Series that season. Corey Kluber (10-5) dodged trouble throughout 5 1-3 innings and the Indians improved to 50-18 against teams with losing records. Chris Carter homered for the Astros, who fell to 51-105 and are two losses from matching the club record set ...
Robinson Cano is by far the best player available this offseason, and the New York Yankees will be looking to keep him in pinstripes for the rest of his career—at the right price. Team president Randy Levine claims that Cano is not a "re-sign at all costs" player, meaning that there will be limits to the team's pursuit of the All-Star second baseman, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. Cano has been, arguably, the Yankees' best player since the team's World Series victory in 2009. He has established himself as the top second baseman in all of baseball and is on pace to cement his name next to some of the greatest second basemen in MLB history. A career .308/.355/.504 hitter with 203 Home Runs and 812 RBI, Cano is still in his prime. An MVP candidate each of the past four seasons, the 30-year-old likely won't be adding that hardware to his trophy case anytime soon while playing in the same league as Miguel Cabrera, Chris Davis and Mike Trout. Still, having his name in the discussion ea ...
5 things to know about baseball on July Fourth By The Associated Press: 1. GEHRIG'S FAREWELL: Delivering one of the most hallowed speeches in Sports History, Lou Gehrig spoke between games of a New York Yankees doubleheader with the Washington Senators on July 4, 1939. It came two weeks after he retired, having been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Gehrig played only eight games that season, driving in one run and hitting .143. The ''Luckiest Man'' speech has been played countless times. --- 2. RAGS' NO-NO: Forty-four years after Gehrig retired, Dave Righetti provided a July Fourth highlight for the Yankees, pitching a no-hitter against rival Boston. It was the first no-hitter by New York since Don Larsen's Perfect Game in the 1956 World Series and the first by a Yankees left-hander since 1917. Righetti got the final out by striking out Wade Boggs, much to the delight of owner George Steinbrenner, who was celebrating his 53rd birthday that day in 1983. ''I did it on the right day, I gue ...

Tim Raines Born in 1959 in Sanford, Fla., Raines blossomed into one of the best leadoff hitters in Major League history. A fifth-round pick of the Montreal Expos in 1977, Raines excelled for parts of 13 seasons in Canada. From 1981 to 1987, the fleet-footed outfielder was selected to seven consecutive all-star teams and was named the MVP of the 1987 Midsummer Classic. During that same period, he also won a National League batting title in 1986 and topped the Senior Circuit in runs twice and in stolen bases four times. In 1,452 games with the Expos, Raines set franchise records in runs (947), stolen bases (635), triples (82), walks (793), and singles (1,163). He also ranks second in Expos history in Batting Average (.301) and hits (1,622). In December 1990, Raines was dealt to the White Sox, where he toiled for five seasons, before being traded to the New York Yankees, where he earned two World Series rings (1996, 1998). In 2001, he returned to the Expos and hit .308 in 47 contests. In all, in a 23-year bi ...

An excellent article on Yankees closer & Pentecostal preacher, Mariano Rivera: Fond farewell: 'Mo'body did it better in baseball than Mariano Rivera and his cutter Thu, Mar 7, 2013 6:15 PM EST The closest thing to perfection in a sports world where it does not exist is Mariano Rivera's cut fastball. For the last 17 years, he has thrown that pitch, and only that pitch really, to all 5,053 batters he has faced during the regular and postseasons. Upward of 20,000 cutters. The same pitch every time. And after nearly two decades of trying, hitters still have no idea what to do with it. Rivera plans on announcing Saturday that he will retire following the 2013 season, and with him not only will he take the most saves in history, a fistful of World Series rings and a spot alongside Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle and Jeter in the New York Yankees' most exclusive pantheon, he can say, with no exaggeration, that he was better at what he did than anybody in baseball ever was at their job. Mariano Rivera reportedly is calling ...

On the 2nd Amendment and Short Stops To a die-hard New York Yankees fan, Bucky Dent might just be the greatest shortstop of all time. A three-time All-Star and a World Series MVP, he helped the Yanks win two World Championships, and more importantly; the mere mention of his name still invokes epithets (which I will not repeat) to the lips of Boston Red Sox fans everywhere. Scooter, eat your heart out. On October 2nd 1978, with two outs and two men on base in the 7th inning, the plucky 5’9” short stop put a 1-1 pitch from Mike Torrez over the Green Monster at Fenway to give the Yankees a lead in what amounted to that year’s one-game AL Division playoff. He did it with a borrowed bat. New York went on to win the game and eventually the World Series that year, with Dent batting .417 for seven RBIs and the Series MVP. That single Home Run made the list of Baseball’s 25 greatest moments of all time and endeared Bucky Dent to Yankees fans forever. The problem with all this is that any objective vie ...
On this day 20 years ago, Reggie Jackson (born 05/18/1946) was inducted into the Baseball Hall of fame. He played 21 seasons with the Kansas City/Oakland Athletics, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, California Angels, and again with the Oakland Athletics. In his career, he batted .262 with 563 Home Runs and 1,702 runs batted in. He was also a 14× All-Star (1969, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984), 5× World Series Champion (1972, 1973, 1974, 1977, 1978), 2× Silver Slugger Award winner (1980, 1982), AL MVP (1973), 2× World Series MVP (1973, 1977), and a winner of the Babe Ruth Award (1977). He also has his Jersey retired by the Oakland Athletics and his retired by the New York Yankees. No wonder he was a first-ballot Hall Of Famer!

Move over, New York Yankees. The LA Dodgers are on a mind-numbing spending spree that makes the club the most expensive in Sports History, Yahoo Sports reports. Fueled by a local-television contract that will rake in $6 billion to $7 billion over 25 years, the team spent $147 million Saturday to buy Zack Greinke in the biggest-ever contract for a right-handed pitcher. And that was before the team signed South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin to a 6-year, $36 million deal, reports the AP. "If the Yankees are the Evil Empire, the Dodgers are the Death Star," quips Yahoo. But the team's newfound "Death Star" status comes with pressures, like having to win the World Series. And new owner Guggenheim Partners may have overstepped in using money from insurance companies to buy the team for a record-breaking $2 billion, reports the New York Times. It "seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen," says the Times, which notes that insurance money is usually invested safe and simple assets—not a baseball team, which is "the ...

Great article on Slater "Dugie" Martin in yesterday's (Sunday) Dallas Morning News, a great point guard for the old Minneapolis Lakers and the World Champion, St. Louis Hawks. Slater passed away this past week, and being a Texas Longhorn grad, was being fondly remembered here in the Big State (the one in which you can not see Russia from your backyard). He, along with Bob Pettit, helped the St. Louis Hawks beat the hated Boston Celtics in the 1958 NBA Championship, a thrill that I still enjoy some 54 year later as it was my first ever championship to enjoy as a fan (all of 11 years of age) as it would still be 6 more years before the St. Cardinals would beat the even more hated New York Yankees in the 1964 World Series. Dugie teamed up with Jack McMahon in the backcourt of that championship team along with other greats like Cliff Hagen and "Boom Boom" Clyde Lovelette. Thanks for the memories, Dugie!!

• Those '66 Orioles didn't do this, either: The three Giants starting pitchers in this Series -- Barry Zito in Game 1, Madison Bumgarner in Game 2 and Ryan Vogelsong in Game 3 -- have won three consecutive games while giving up a total of one run. So how long has it been since any team's starters won Games 1, 2 and 3 of a World Series while allowing no more than one run in any game? How about 75 years, since the 1937 New York Yankees did that behind Lefty Gomez, Red Ruffing and Monte Pearson. • But hang on. This gets better. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Giants are only the second National League team whose starters allowed a total of one run (or none) in any three-game stretch of any single World Series. And the other team pulled it off a mere 107 years ago -- when the 1905 Giants did it in Games 3, 4 and 5, with Christy Mathewson throwing two shutouts and "Iron Man" Joe McGinnity tossing a third. • Because their starters almost never give up a run, these Giants haven't trailed at any p ...

Dear ESPN, Thank you for failing to recognize the Detroit Tigers advancing to the World Series. We sincerely appreciate you spending 2 seconds on the Tigers' obliteration of the New York Yankees and the non-stop coverage of whether or not A-Rod will be with the team next year. I'm might be going out on a limb here, but maybe the Tigers were much better than the Yankees leading to the series sweep. But no that's ridiculous the Yankees just collapsed and would have killed the Tigers. Let's get Stephen A Smith's opinion on the topic, "A-Rod could have beaten the Tigers by himself with no help." Again thank you for focusing the attention on the Yankees lost, rather than the Tigers win. Sincerely, All Tigers fans everywhere and the city of Detroit

My best friend Teresa A Brintley hometown is Detroit and yes my hometown is New York and i can't stand the New York Yankees never had and never will. Mr.Antroy High what did we talk about? I told you and you wouldn't listen to me. That was a heck of a explosion them Detroit Tigers put on them Yankees. There going to the ship meaning* World Series Bound*!!! Headlines in The New York Daily News and The New York Post will read*Bronx Bombers got burnt out running away from the eye of the tiger*! Congratulations Detroit Tigers. All you New York Yankees fans have those dustpans waiting at Yankee Stadium right along with the brooms. Where will The New York Yankees trip be after the World Series? Oops my bad you lost!

And the party has started, World Series bound! Way to go Detroit Tigers wish I was in motown celebrating with ya. Pull out the broom's, there's nothing better than a sweep. Just an FYI there will be a community burning of New York Yankees memorabila, common over if you wanna join. Hats, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, or Cc Sabathia baseball cards and/or jerseys are more than welcome to be thrown on the fire. Looks like that 24 pack New York Yankee toilet paper has been a great investment.
Well according to Brian Bevan logic I shouldn't feel proud that my favorite baseball team makes the playoffs and that they are equal to his favorite team the lowly playoff less Philadelphia Phillies. F$%k that every yea I have been alive besides 3 the Yankees have made the playoffs and they have won the World Series 5 times and from a young age sitting with my Grandmother ( R.I.P) watching Yankees games and the majority of the time they won those games and seeing the many great players that have worn the pinstripes, and watching myself on home video running around yelling " Wade Boggs daddy Wade Boggs". well in summary what I'm getting at is that I would never rather like another baseball team besides the New York Yankees, so f*all the haters well see a decent amount of you guys in October again, cus seeing them get sweep doesn't bother me because I remember all the other great moments I have been able to witness so haters enjoy today because like always the Yankees are gunna reload and come back and be ...
In the 1981 World Series, the New York Yankees lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 6 games. Yankee right fielder Dave Winfield went 1 for 20 something in the Series, with his single coming in Game 6. Owner George Steinbrenner called him "Mr May" after the series (thanks George!). Different era, but there was never any talk of benching Winfield during the series. You play through the slump. Fast forward to this year's Yankees. It looks like Joe Girardi is putting a bunch of names in a hat and shaking it up. Certainly it paid off with Raul Ibanez vs the Orioles. Game 3 vs the Tigers, Eduardo Nunez hit a solo shot off of Justin Verlander for the Yankees only run. Game 4 today 4PM, TBS. Come on Manager Girardi, start A Rod, Granderson, and Swisher! They're due to bust out.
October 17. 2012 This day in history: On Wednesday, October 17, the second day of the Cuban Missile crisis, in the country things were normal. Congressional mid-term elections were just three weeks away. The newspapers were reporting the previous day’s sports news that the New York Yankees defeated the San Francisco Giants in the seventh game of the World Series. Americans were also focused on the hit new television show, The Beverly Hillbillies. In government secret circles, Bobby Kennedy met with Georgi Boshakov, who was Kennedy’s back-channel source to the Kremlin. Boshakov assured Kennedy that the missiles were defensive. At the President’s request, the Attorney-General called together a select group of advisors to discuss what the response to the Soviet threat should be. The group was given the name Executive Committee for Security, or “Ex-Com” for short. All the meetings of Ex-Com throughout the crisis were recorded and those records are available to the public today. The committee did n ...
New York Yankees = The most classless organization in all of sports. And there fans are the biggest jokes in all of sports. Look how this team got rid of Bernie Williams, Tino Martinez, Posada, and now A-ROID. Yogi Berra was treated so bad he stayed away for years. And the Yankees talk about Yankee pride. WHERE IS IT? This team embarrass NYC. And the so called fans. Last month they RAN out of Yankee Stadium when they went 4 runs down in Extra Innings. RAN. If Oh-No-Its-Cano ran as fast as them that night, he would never be accused of not hustling. Yankee fans booed Mickey Mantle for years. You listen to them now, you would think he is a God. The Yankee fans are complete fools. And they want to know why all of baseball laughs at them. Spend the most money on payroll, and you STILL can't buy the 2012 World Series. I said it 2 years ago, the Yankees are done for at least 5 years. Stand tall MET fans. We don't win like the Yankees, but than we don't spend like them either. A MET fan can carry there heads ...
Top of the 9th, 2-1 Detroit. 2 outs. Full count, single. Full count single. Now I'm nail biting! Full count,2 outs, men on 1st and 2nd. Phil Coke strikes him out and DETROIT WINS!! Sweep the New York Yankees. One more and World Series!! Happy 40th Eminem!! "Why yes Katie, he is a baseball fan."
Fun Fact: The only possible pertinent facts in this situation are that the 1996 New York Yankees are one of three times to ever overturn a seven-game series after losing the first two games at home (1996 World Series vs. Atlanta) and that tonight is the nine-year anniversary of Aaron Boone's series-deciding Home Run (2003 ALCS vs. Boston).
Not only are the Detroit Tigers looking to take a commanding 3-0 lead over the New York Yankees, but the team from Motown is also on top of the 2012 World Series betting odds to bring home this season’s championship hardware.
What a blow to our Yankees...Jeter done for the the year. The man, the myth, the legend. Ranked in post-season hits, runs, and RBI's, in HR's and in walks. And we are now without his skills and leadership for the remainder of the post season. Add to that, we lost Game 1 at home and we have to face Verlander twice - pretty much automatic losses for the Bronx Bombers. It will take something remarkable for them to not only win the ALCS but the World Series. But then again they are the New York Yankees: the team that seems to almost always find a way to win. 25 come from behind wins this year alone. Girardi want to get out of that jersey. Here's looking forward to World Title
Greetings, Surface-dwellers! Neptune, King of the Oceans here! Ooooh, I feel so deliciously prepared! By this time tomorrow morning (and please be aware, it's only a prediction, and little else), your precious New York Yankees will be once more humiliated in their own Stadium by no less than the Baltimore Orioles --- meaning that that doofus of a Wizard, Blackwolf the Dragonmaster, will once more have to kneel before my throne and surrender control of Earth's oceans to me! For those of you who don't know the tale, the Mage of Talisker made a bet with me in 1993, when the now Miami Marlins challenged the Yanks in that year's World Series. Long story short, the Marlins won the Championship, four games to three; the rest I think you can guess for yourselves. I welcome your responses to this silly prediction; personally, I can't wait for Master Blackwolf to get his butt down here to my Throne Room and do what only New York's Unofficial Wizard can do! (Heh-heh!)
This is New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter. He's a five-time World Series Champion. He's the most beloved Yankee in nearly half a century. He's a former Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. And, if this report from the New York Post is true, he likes to leave a thank-you basket.
What an Amazing Night in Baseball. New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics come back in Extra Innings to win their games. The Playoffs are really exciting and the match up between teams are very balanced and competitive. Pitching duels are intense. Humphrey Bogart was right when he said " A Hot Dog at The Ballpark, is Better than a Steak at the Ritz " My team the NY Mets are not in the playoffs but when they won the World Series in 1986 we use to say " The Late Scoring, Bench Clearing, Fist Brawling METS!!! Baseball Like it Ought a BE " please pass the apple pie and a Cold Beer :)
Since my beloved New York Mets are in no way involved in the MLB post season, my interests for success this post season is to see a rematch of the 1962 World Series: San Francisco Giants vs. New York Yankees! :-)
Just after the New York Yankees won their 27th World Series in New Yankee Stadium (just as they did in old Yankee Stadium the 1st year it opened) NO disrespe...
On this date in 1955, the Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees to capture their first and only World Series in Brooklyn.
Luis Gonzales and the Arizona Diamondbacks beating the New York Yankees in seven games is the greatest World Series memory in my lifetime
The Houston Business Journal published a booklet on the 100th anniversary of Rice University. Lots of interesting history tidbits in there. A lot of it I knew. Here is something I never heard before now: 1962 -- Rice receives the ultimate alumni gift when John Cox, ’27, donates Yankee Stadium to his alma mater. Cox, owner of the venue through a 1955 stock acquisition, gives Rice all capital stock in the Major League Baseball stadium, then valued at $4.5 million, along with lucrative leasing rights. The university makes millions renting the House that Ruth Built to the New York Yankees over the next nine years, a dark period when the Bronx Bombers didn’t win a single pennant, much less a World Series. In 1966, Rice repaints the stadium blue and white. In 1971, the city of New York acquires Yankee Stadium by eminent domain and pays Rice a $2.5 million condemnation fee.
The Washington Nationals are NL East Division Champions. Thanks to my second favorite team, the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates beat the Braves to put my Nationals in first place. Now, lets go Nats and win the World Series and hopefully beat the hated New York Yankees.
All right my favorite baseball fans, here are my year end awards AL MVP - Miguel Cabera AL Rookie of the year - Mike Trout AL Cy Young - Felix Hernandez - great pitcher on a bad team, has Dave Steib syndrome, loyal to the hometown ball club. AL Champs - New York Yankees -- I hate this but see note below NL MVP Buster Posey NL Rookie Wade Miley - my candate Simmions gets hurt sooo and a rookie pitcher with 16 wins is better than a rookie with a 257 ba batting between Werth and Zimmerman NL Cy Young RA Dickey/Gio Gonzalez/ Craig Kimbrel - cut the thing in 3, they all deserve it NL Champs Giants (though I was going to say Braves,,,lol) experiance counts, this group of Reds are snake bit since when they played together at Louisville, Nats are on a slide, Braves have no luck World Series Champs - *** Yankees - Until history proves other wise, the Yankees have won the World Series very year on a Presidential Election when there is a Democratic incumbent- another reason not to vote for Obama
Charlie Manuel, thank you so very much for your service! You brought a World Championship to Philadelphia in 2008! World Series in 2009! 5 NL East Titles! If the New York Yankees could say good bye to Joe Torre, Philly can certainly say good bye to you! A mulligan, your fault, or injuries, well it is time for a new direction for the Philadelphia Phillies! Again the name of Ryne Sandberg surfaces in Philadelphia! Remember the first mistake Philadelphia made in 1982 let Sandberg go to Chicago! Don't make that mistake again! Sandberg has done one *** of a job with AAA Lehigh Valley! Rest assured that he WILL get Major League manager job offers this off season! The Phillies can NOT allow Sandberg to leave this organization for a second time! The first time was as a player and he went off to a Hall Of Fame playing career! Make him the Philadelphia Phillies manager! Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me! Do not let Ryne Sandberg to leave again!
Darryl Strawberry had a sensational career as a baseball player. He was named nine times to All Star teams. He helped the New York Mets win one World Series. And he helped the New York Yankees win thr
My Bold Perdition in the 2012 MLB Post Season, The Washington Nationals Win the World Series. And Beat the New York Yankees in a Big Game 7 at National Park. Even without Steven Strasburg. The Nationals still have an amazing pitching core with Geo Gonzales and Jordan Zimmerman and a super nice bullpen. And when you have a allstar Short Stop. In Ian Desmond, Gold Glove and a clutch Power 3rd Baseman in Ryan Zimmerman. A World Series Champion who's a pretty good baseball player to in Jason Werth, and super star rookie who is nothing but a a stud in Bryce Harper. Plus home feild thru out the Playoffs its looking like. Idk see no one beating them.
Here is a list of the top 10 dynasties: You be the judge, is this a legit list, or not? 10) New York Islanders (4 titles in a row '79-'82) 9) Pittsburgh Steelers (steel curtain with 4 Superbowls in 6 years) 8) L.A. Lakers (showtime, not Kobe's Lakers... 5 chips in 10 years and 8 appearances in the finals) 7) UConn W. Basketball (6 championships in 11 years, 78 game winning streak) 6) Montreal Candiens ('56-'60 with 5 Cups and 10 Hall Of Fame players) 5) Chicago Bulls (Essentially the entire decade of the 90's - why did Jordan ever leave? 6-peat was good enough?) 4) New York Yankees (love 'em or hate 'em 10 World Series in 16 years between '47-'62... DiMaggio, Mantle, Yogi, the list goes on) 3) UNC W. Soccer (From '82-2000 they had 16 NCAA Championships -- anyone heard of Mia Hamm?) 2) Boston Celtics ('57-'69 11 NBA Championships in 13 seasons... Mr. Russell helps) 1) UCLA Men's Basketball (1967-1973, the Bruins won seven straight titles and also amassed four undefeated seasons during their 12-year run. Ra ...
As a player, Leo Durocher was known as a light-hitting, slick-fielding infielder who managed to fashion a 20 year, four team (New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers) career that included two World Series appearances (1928 and 1934). It was as a manager, however, that Durocher truly left an indelible mark on the game. Over a span of 34 years and four teams (1939-1973), Durocher managed a total of 22 seasons with a passion for winning perhaps unequaled in baseball history. Though remembered best for three things (coining the phrase "Nice guys finish last," recognizing and cultivating the immense talents of Willie Mays, and managing the Giants to the 1954 World Series Championship), Durocher will go down in baseball lore as a fierce competitor who richly deserved his nomination to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994.
