Here’s a hypothetical situation (everyone loves these, right?): You have an unlimited payroll. Would you pay more money for a tainted ball that signified the greatest record in baseball history or a ball that represented a personal milestone by one of the greatest players on the greatest franchise in sports history achieved on pure talent … Continue reading Jeter vs Bonds: A battle for the most valuable baseball
27 championships, 40 American League pennants, countless All-Stars and MVPs. Even a 500 home run hitter and 300-game winning pitcher. But never in Yankees history has a player earned 3,000 hits. That is, until Derek Jeter busted onto the scene in 1995. Since then, Jeter singled, doubled, tripled and homered his way into Yankees history. … Continue reading Jeter hits 3,000

So the fun begins. With a handful of big-name free agents set to test the waters after the season concludes, I couldn’t help but wonder: Where will they land next year?

Yankees – They’re the 2009 World Series champions and still kept intact the solid nucleus that got them there. They traded top prospects to land centerfielder Curtis Granderson, a much better defensive asset than Johnny Damon. They also traded Melky Cabrera to the Braves for Javier Vazquez to bolster the starting rotation. With guys like … Continue reading 5 Teams to Watch in the AL
After the Phillies let go Pedro Feliz and signed Placido Polanco to fill his position at third, the Phillies found themselves with a complete infield. Almost too complete as a matter of fact. We have all heard the argument between Yankees and Phillies fans: Who has the better infield in baseball? Clearly both teams are heads and … Continue reading An Infield Debate for the Ages
Once again, the Yankees are Pedro Martinez’s daddy. The Phillies season has finally ended as the Yankees beat up the Phillies pitching, winning game 6 by a score of 7-3 and the series 4-2.
