Breaking down the AL East

April 2, 2010

Who will come out on top?

When looking at the AL East, it’s arguable that the best three teams in baseball are in this division. The Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all are stacked with premium offensive players, good pitching and exceptional coaching, which makes this year’s hunt for October that much more interesting.

2010 Fantasy Baseball Top 50

March 11, 2010

#1-Hanley Ramirez-SS-FLA- What’s not to love about Han-Ram?  Given the shallowness at the shortstop position for the 2010 season and the monstrous numbers he put up in ’09 (.342 BA, 101 R’s, 24 HR’s, 106 RBI’s, 27 SB, .410 OBP), Hanley’s value is “through the roof”.  Oh yeah, I almost forgot, he’s only 26 and it’s very possible he hasn’t even met his potential yet. How scary is that?

Top 10 NY Sports Moments of 2009

December 30, 2009

...where dreams are made of

As 2009 comes to a close, and Luis Castillo drops the ball  in Times Square, we reflect on those moments (good or bad) in the past year that made New York sports entertaining, frustrating, and memorable.  Players went down, new players arrived, and even a Championship was won for the city.  Tears were shed, fans jumped for joy, and in a time of recession sports provided us with an outlet to escape.

SI names Derek Jeter 2009 Sportsman of the Year

December 1, 2009

For the first time in its illustrious history, a Yankee has won the prestigious Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award since its inception in 1954.

Derek Jeter is the gold standard in baseball.

Jeter becomes the first singular baseball player — the Red Sox team won it in 2004 and Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa won it in 1998 — since Cal Ripken Jr. was awarded it in 1995.

Jeter had a renaissance year, both in the field and at the plate. For the season, he batted .334 with 18 HRs, 66 RBIs and 30 stolen bases. He posted a .406 on base percentage and racked up 212 hits. With those 212 hits, he passed Luis Aparicio for most hits by a shortstop and Lou Gehrig for most hits as a Yankee. He finished third in the AL MVP race, batted .344 this postseason, which included a .407 batting average in the World Series, and led the Yankees to their 27th championship.

Thank You Bob

November 27, 2009

Legendary – Bob Sheppard has decided it is time to officially step down as the public address announcer of the New York Yankees.

“I have no plans of coming back,” the 99-year-old Sheppard said on Wednesday in a telephone interview. “Time has passed me by, I think. I had a good run for it. I enjoyed doing what I did. I don’t think, at my age, I’m going to suddenly regain the stamina that is really needed if you do the job and do it well.”  Read the rest of this entry ?
