Yankees Ichiro and Kuroda bring Japanese pride to the Bronx

Usually admitting when you are wrong can sometimes be a good thing, and I was wrong about Ichiro Suzuki. When the Yankees announced that they had traded for the Mariners biggest star outfielder, I did not think that it was a great idea. I had figured that helping the lull in ticket sales at Yankee […]

Red Sox ruin everything even Yankees rivalry

For over 100 years, the Red Sox and Yankees, the two most storied franchises in baseball, have shared the most heated rivalry in all of American sports.

The Bronx Bombers went 3-1 vs. the Texas Rangers this past […]

Excuse me, as the above is not supposed to be a history lesson on Joba Chamberlain and Phil […]

New York Yankees: Bronx magic

  OH WHAT A NIGHT: Last night in the 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers, the New York Yankees played like the best team in baseball. The Bombers had it all from solid pitching, an offense that scored with RISP, and productive defensive. But of course it wouldn’t be a Yankee game without some long […]
