Yankees Catcher Gets Hit In The Dick, YES Thinks It Was His Collarbone

Francisco Cervelli took a foul ball to the dick in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game against the Tigers. In real time, it was hard to tell where he actually got hit and when the trainer came out to check him out it looked like he was grabbing Cervelli's shoulder area. That led YES analyst Ken Singleton to wonder… » 8/28/14 12:01am Thursday 12:01am

When Yankee Stadium's Bleacher Creatures Were Wild

Ivan Solotaroff spent much of the summer of 1988 hanging out in the bleachers at Yankee Stadium. It was a different time: The Bronx wasn't hospitable to, well, anyone back then. This was before the Disneyfication of Manhattan, before Rudy Giuliani, before Brooklyn became a Mecca of gentrification. You could go to… » 8/18/14 12:06pm 8/18/14 12:06pm

Corn Maze To Derek Jeter: "Thanks, Captain Clutch"

If you've ever wanted to know what Derek Jeter's regal face might look like as a five-acre corn maze, today is your lucky day. A New Jersey farm decided that instead of some boring-ass corn maze for kids to get lost in—while their parents wonder how they found themselves at 45 years old, wasting 10 bucks and a crisp… » 8/17/14 6:49pm 8/17/14 6:49pm

The Yankees fan in question is Luigi Militello, owner of Luke's Bar And Grill, and the Red Sox 2013 World Series ring belongs to Drew Weber, owner of Boston's single-A affiliate Lowell Spinners.

Troy Tulowitzki Went To A Yankees Game And Everyone's Freaking Out

Troy Tulowitzki will be in another uniform next year. That's not to impress you with my predictive abilities, or to rub it in for Rockies fans, or to make some kind of observation about small-market teams' inability to keep their homegrown stars. It's just a statement of fact. As in: the sun will come up tomorrow,… » 7/28/14 10:30am 7/28/14 10:30am

Ichiro Hits First Home Run Of The Season, Jeter Gives Him The Business

Ichiro Suzuki hit his first home run of the season last night, a three-run homer that put the Yankees on top of the Blue Jays 6-4. It was Ichiro's first home run in almost a full calendar year, and as he approached the dugout, Jeter gave him the who are you and what have you done with Ichiro? look. And then busted… » 7/26/14 9:59am 7/26/14 9:59am

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 7/23/14 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 7/23/14 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
