I, for one, am excited that 2016 has kicked off as the season of baserunning controversies.
The thing that sucks about being Carlos Gomez—a guy who’s earned a reputation as a “hot head,” or whatever it is grumpy baseball men are calling people—is that every little thing he does is going to be taken as a slight.
This might sound crazy, but hear Joe Girardi out. If we want to make games faster, why not get rid of physical mound conferences altogether? "I'm a big fan of Bluetooth," Girardi said.
The Derek Jeter farewell tour is nice, but it's also serving as a distraction for a large concern in the Bronx: The Yankees have now missed the postseason for a second straight season. Excluding the 1994 season, which had no playoffs due to a strike, that hasn't happened since 1992-1993. Manager Joe Girardi made sure…
The race for third place in the AL East is a snippy one, with the Ray's honoring Derek Jeter before last night's game, then clipping him with a fastball in on the hands. Afterward Joe Girardi blasted the Rays for hitting so many Yankees batters recently, but with a twist: instead of accusing them of doing it…
Baseball, it's still here! Between innings in Baltimore, a red-faced Buck Showalter came out of the dugout yelling at Joe Girardi and had to be restrained by the home plate umpire.
Just your typical four-hour, Yankees-Red Sox slugfest, with a rabid Fenway crowd calling for blood, a beanball, an ejection, a revenge home run, and multiple A-Rod bombshell stories dropping over the course of the game. This night, everything happened.
I don't know how much of this was Girardi and how much was The Binder, but somehow, for some reason, Joe Girardi managed a May game against the Rockies like it was an 18-inning World Series Game 7. And it...worked?
The Yankees are so classy. Aren't they? Class organization. The class of baseball. The class of class. The classy class of class. Just how classy are the Yankees? They'll throw their best players under the bus to prove their class! Here's Jon Heyman:
What a world. It's three hours before first pitch, and everyone with an internet connection is aware of the Yankees' lineup for tonight's Game 5 against Baltimore.
Today the Yankees announced that manager Joe Girardi's father passed away. Jerry Girardi had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for years, and this New Yorker article describes how Joe would make the six-hour drive to the nursing home in Illinois every time the Yankees traveled to Chicago.
Last night, the Yankees lost to the Orioles on a botched third out call that made everyone go a little crazy. It actually started before (and likely caused) the blown call: Mark Teixeira decided sliding head first was a good idea. He was called out. He then said the umps wanted to get home early and blew the call on…
Joe Girardi wasn't in the best of moods tonight after the Yankees lost 2-1 to the White Sox, so it's pretty understandable that he'd want to interrupt his postgame media gaggle to go beat the shit out of some Chicago heckler. Most impressive, though, is that Girardi comes back to the huddle and continues his thought…
Bob Raissman has the story today of what happens when the manager of the New York Yankees skips a scheduled radio spot with a satellite host best known for tantrums and rhotacism. Apparently Chris "Mad Dog" Russo is quite angry, which isn't new, but there's actually something interesting about the source of his anger,…
After Lou Piniella announced he was retiring after last Sunday's game—fittingly, it was a blowout—the Chicago and national media started yammering on about who would replace him, and What It All Means For The Cubs. Please make it stop.
Take a close look at Joe Girardi's mouth. Why would a grown man wear braces, specifically during the one month of his life when he's most likely to be on national TV? A pretty sweet reason, actually.
