Yankees Ground Crew Struggles To Get Tarp On Field During Driving Rain

After some very nearby flashes of lightning, the skies opened and dumped a whole mess of rain on the Bronx tonight. The Yankees ground crew struggled mightily to get the tarp on the field as the rain kept pouring and accumulating on the tarp, and the wind kept whipping. This wasn't a momentary delay, like a guy… » 7/23/14 9:40pm Wednesday 9:40pm

Chase Headley Meets New Team Mid-Game, Hits Walk-Off Single In 14th

That's newly-acquired Yankees third baseman Chase Headley meeting his new coaches and teammates for the first time since he was traded from the Padres earlier in the day. He had to catch a flight from Chicago, where San Diego was set to play the Cubs, so he was not expected to get to the stadium on time—Joe Girardi… » 7/23/14 1:00am Wednesday 1:00am

Derek Jeter And Adam Wainwright Saved The All-Star Game

The silly, silly controversy over whether Adam Wainright gave Derek Jeter "a couple of pipe shots" is a great thing. Not necessarily the act itself, nor the discussion over it, in which people seem upset not that it happened but that Wainwright didn't lie about it, or even the immediate fallout, which will see more… » 7/16/14 9:45am 7/16/14 9:45am

Communist Umpire Ruins All-Star Game On First Play

I'm sorry: is this, or is this not, Derek Jeter's night? Are we not saying farewell to The Captain tonight? Someone better get the umpires on board then, because on the second goddamned pitch of the game, Derek Sanderson Jeter went to his motherfucking left and snagged a rocket off the bat of Andrew McCutchen. He then… » 7/15/14 8:35pm 7/15/14 8:35pm

Yankees Fan Caught Sleeping In Stands Sues Everyone For Defamation

The man in the screencap above, taken from ESPN's April 13 broadcast of a game between the Red Sox and Yankees, is a deeply sensitive man who does not understand how the internet works. We know this because he has filed a defamation lawsuit against ESPN, John Kruk, Dan Shulman, and MLB Advanced Media for putting his… » 7/07/14 3:23pm 7/07/14 3:23pm

Mark Teixeira's Fake Talk Show Is Actually Pretty Funny

I had no idea that Mark Teixeira has a fake talk show, which comes off as some kind of cross between Between Two Ferns and The Chris Farley Show, and I am upset about that because Foul Territory with Mark Teixeira is pretty funny. This is a surprising development, as I always just assumed that Mark Teixeira had the… » 6/05/14 5:51pm 6/05/14 5:51pm

Terrible Umpire Laz Diaz Taunts Shawn Kelley Into Getting Ejected

Baseball is full of pointless indignities, but the fact a player can be ejected from a game he's already, by rule, barred from re-entering is one of the most impotent. With that impotence in mind, here's professional MLB umpire Laz Diaz goading Yankees pitcher Shawn Kelley into getting ejected. » 5/06/14 9:20am 5/06/14 9:20am

Yankees Fans Boo Picture Of Robinson Cano, Until The Real Cano Shows Up

This is another great gag from Jimmy Fallon, along the same lines as the Matt Harvey prank Fallon pulled on Mets fans. The setup here is pretty simple. A producer gets Yankees fans on the street to boo a large picture of Robinson Cano and after they boo and turn back to the camera, the producer tells them to give it… » 4/29/14 12:30am 4/29/14 12:30am

Pine Tar Should Be Fully Legal, And Baseball Is Still Fucking Insane

As you might know, Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda got booted from a game last night for rocking a swatch of pine tar on the back of his neck, in full view of everyone. The weird thing is that it wasn't the fact that Pineda used pine tar that got everyone pissy, but the fact that he did it so blatantly, at least… » 4/24/14 12:14pm 4/24/14 12:14pm

Michael Pineda Again Isn't Discreet About His Pine Tar, Gets Ejected

The last time Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda faced the Red Sox—on April 10—he clearly had pine tar on his hand. No one on the Red Sox brought it up, and the Yankees won. Tonight, Pineda again used pine tar, slapping on his neck before the second inning. Red Sox manager John Farrell spoke up this time. » 4/23/14 8:30pm 4/23/14 8:30pm
