When in Kansas City…


The end of summer is a melancholy time. The long days, the heat, the abundance from the garden—tomatoes and corn are still out of this world for the next few weeks—all coming to an end. For the Yanks, baseball probably, too, when the summer turns to fall. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate each and every game we’ve got left—especially if the Yanks can make things thorny for the other contending teams.

More in K.C. tonight.

Never mind the barbecue:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Oh Yeah, There’s A Game Tonight


Pump, Pump, Pump Pump Me Up


Yanks droppin’ bombs all over the O’s so far this weekend. Will our boys sweep?

We’ll be root-root-rooting them on.

Never mind the Heat Inded:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Look, Up in the Sky


Yanks play upstart/spoilers to the hang-on-sloppy O’s.

Hot, very hot in the Bronx.

Never mind the stickiness:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

On and On and On and On


The Yanks look to win the game tonight. We will root for them because they are our boys.

Never mind the pontificating:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

That Time of Year


Yanks in Seattle to see our old chum Robbie Cano.

Never mind the late night:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Sweet and Meaty


Yanks having some fun in Orange County this weekend. They look for the sweep this afternoon.

Never mind the palm trees:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

California Dreamin’


Ah, remember the days when the Angels were a thorny pain in the ass? Not so much these past few years. The young Yanks beat up on J. Weaver last night and look for more tonight.

Never mind the sunset:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

In Case You’re Up…

vggdsljum6sqvyxj6fmkThe New Jack Yanks are doing a little West Coast swing tonight starting at 10pm EST with Los Angeles as the first stop and Seattle the last.  If you’re up late at night, need something to preoccupy your mind and if you can stand them, maybe you should consider the new A-Team…

Thunder Clap


The good news: Gary Shanchez hit two home runs last night—the second one was a real blast and came just as the rain did.

There was a rain delay and when the game resumed came the bad news as a 6-0 Yankee lead was wiped out by a swift, merciless comeback from the Jays who scored 8 in the 8th and won, 12-6.

Growing Pains indeed.

More rain today? We shall see. Yanks and Jays play a matinee.

Never mind the slickers:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

I Think I Can, I Think I Can


Pardon me for fallin’ asleep at the wheel—it is mid-August after all, the sleepiest time of year. Still, the Yanks won a nail-biter last night, a big double play getting Betances out of trouble in the ninth.

Let’s see if the ball flies tonight.

Never mind heat index:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

We’re Havin’ a Heat Wave


Alex Rodriguez’s pregame ceremony was cut short by rain. But the storm was a passing one and it left the most gorgeous sunset in its wake—the sky was orange and red and fantastic. Rodriguez got an RBI double in his first at bat—his last hit and run batted in for the Yanks. The Old Man even trotted out to third base in the 9th inning before being pulled and given an ovation. It was modest by Yankee standards by seemingly heartfelt (manager Joe Girard’s tearful postgame press conference perhaps being the most genuine televised moment of the night).

And, oh yeah—the Yanks won.

This morning gives a tribute to the 1996 team.

Never mind the humidity:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

What Did You Expect?


The Yanks honored Alex Rodriguez tonight and before they could get through the proceedings the sky opened up and everyone ran for cover. Just about sums it up for Rodriguez, doesn’t it?



Hot Dog Days


Yanks look to make life annoying for the Sox. Hope Alex gets a base hit, maybe drive in a run.

Never mind the selfies:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!


Old Friends


The bobbleheads ain’t coming. But the Yanks are in Boston for a three-game set against the Red Sox, who need these wins more than the New Yorkers. Be interesting to see if Alex gets any swings this week. I expect he might, just to give him some burn in a big league game.

Never mind the boo-birds:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Treadmill to Oblivion


Man, the Yanks should sell more often. All this winning, what gives?

They’re at it again this afternoon.

Never mind the Men at Work:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

S’Long and Thanks for the Ringski


Whoa, Tex is hanging ‘em up at the end of the year.

And tonight gives the Clevelanders.

Never mind the March of Time:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Saving Face


That what the Mets want to do tonight. More than that, they just need a win.

The Yanks. Well, we’re still root, root, rootin’ for our boys.

Never mind the ruckus:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Back in the BX


Our Raise-the-White-Flag Yanks host the Mets for a pair starting tonightski.

Never mind those cheerin’ Mets fans:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!



Seriously, that was a fun win last night. Pretty funny when the Yanks are in the tank and can play the spoiler.

Never mind the future:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!
