Yankees flamethrower Aroldis Chapman averaged 101.9 mph on his eleven pitches last night against the Twins—and that’s only because one of them was a changeup. How fast is 101.9 mph? Faster than cops clocked the following athletes when they were busted for speeding:
Listen, can you hear it? A faint whisper grows louder. “The Cubbies could use another bat on the bench.” it says. “Why not trade for Andrew McCutchen?”
Hideki Matsui has been out of baseball for four years, but the former Yankee still has that oomph—as proven during today’s Old-Timers’ Game in the Bronx, when the slugger crushed a David Cone pitch into the second deck.
The Blue Jays beat the Yankees tonight and the Blue Jays’ best slugger even had the nerve to take it out on Yankees fans, smashing a beverage (presumably beer?) showering the upper chunk of a section in suds (or maybe soda! who knows!).
Aroldis Chapman returns to the Yankees today after serving his 30-game domestic violence suspension, but the fireballing reliever has yet to take much responsibility for the incident that landed him on MLB’s banned list.
Red Sox coaches had to restrain David Ortiz after his outburst following a ninth-inning strikeout with the bases loaded in a game the Yankees went on to win, 3-2.
The New York Yankees are last in the American League East at 9-17, and tonight they suffered maybe the most bitter defeat of what’s been a real dirge of a season. Their offense has been particularly bad, generating the fewest runs in the AL and mustering just the second-lowest OPS in the AL. The team’s inability to…
Athletics outfielder Chris Coghlan’s two-run homer in Thursday’s game bummed out one small Yankees fan. When a woman sitting next to him started to clap, he swiftly scolded her for supporting Oakland.
Danny Valencia probably thought he had a decent chance to sprint home from third after Aaron Hicks caught this sacrifice fly. He didn’t even get close. Look at this goddamn throw.
The Yankees wrap up a three-game series in Toronto tonight, and they got their second out of the night with a fair bit of pizazz, as Brett Gardner went ass-over-teakettle to make this grab here.
This MLB season is not even a week old, yet fans are already resorting to the kind of boredom-reducing insane behavior we usually see in late September. Two separate incidents in Detroit and Milwaukee will, if you continue reading any further, probably ruin your appetite for the day. You’ve been warned.
Alex Rodriguez hit his first home run of the season today in Detroit, giving the Yankees an early lead thanks to A-Rod’s massive dong.
The best seats in the house at Yankee Stadium this afternoon belong to a pair of dudes wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes. And we all have Last Week Tonight to thank.
The Yankees suck. You knew this—their new policies prohibit print-at-home tickets, a move specifically designed to stop fans from reselling premium seats at below-face-value prices. When asked why, COO Lonn Trost said it’s to protect rich fans from having to sit next to the poors. Luckily for your entertainment, the…
After an MLB witch-hunt designed to force him out of the game in shame, the Yankees’ repeated attempts to void his contract and his milestone bonus money, and a comeback season that earned him redemption—if only as a foil to more actively sinister forces—Alex Rodriguez said today that he will retire following the 2017…
For the first time this season, MLB is mandating that all clubs have full-time Spanish translators. Previously, teams had hired translators on an ad hoc basis, or informally used bilingual coaches and teammates to help young Latin players navigate interviews and interactions.
New York became the latest city to ban all forms of tobacco from sporting events, which is going to come down hard on the Mets and Yankees who are quite literally addicted to it. Players are handling the pending law in one of two ways: either proactively, by attempting to quit, or by wondering just how anyone can stop…
