In an other wise relatively harmless article that was in yesterday’s Daily News, Mike Lupica said something that really got under my skin:
Cano covers No. 3 and No. 4 in the order, he covers no-show Nick Johnson and Curtis Granderson and Brian Cashman letting Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui just walk out the door. [...]
Tom Tango makes an interesting point in a post over at The Book Blog:
Twins’ bullpen is first in MLB in Situational Wins (WPA/LI), and 4th in MLB in WPA. They are 5th in ERA and 10th in FIP.
This is just like your buddy coming back from Vegas, and only telling you about [...]
John Harper thinks the Yankees should trade Javy Vazquez to the Mets. He is wrong.
First off, Vazquez is making $11.5MM this season. Unless the Yankees want to pay the rest of it, I don’t think anyone would take it on. I also don’t think that the Yankees would want to pay someone with [...]

From Maury Allen:
All he does is play baseball and play it better than anybody has over the last decade or so with five World Series triumphs, seven pennants and eleven division titles.
He is, in journalistic terms, colorful on the field and colorless off the [...]
As I said in the comments to the other post and on Twitter, I think Alex Rodriguez was likely unaware of Dallas Braden’s silly unwritten rule, that Braden overreacted, and that Alex reacted exactly as one should when dealing with a petulant child attempting to lecture an adult on the rules of the game. If [...]
Last night, Jon Heyman Tweeted that the Yankee 5th starter race is over. The Yankee blog community was abuzz with the news, thinking that Hughes had won the competition and Joba will be heading to the bullpen. Here’s his Tweet:
joba is out of #yanks rotation [...]
After Phil Hughes turned in an impressive effort against the Astros last night, Joe Girardi had the following to say:
“He threw the ball extremely well tonight,” Girardi said. “Attacked the strike zone. Had a good curveball. Threw some good changeups tonight. He let his fielders do the work, too. He looked good tonight. [...]

Alex Rodriguez stated yesterday that will be speaking with federal investigators regarding Dr. Tony Galea, a doctor connected to HGH who has ties to A-Rod’s rehab doctor. Of course, this set off a firestorm among some Yankees columnists, despite the fact that Bud [...]
Yesterday at River Ave. Blues, Ben Kabak did a good job at breaking down a shoddy John Harper B-Jobber article. Both Moshe and I were planning on doing something like this, but Ben beat us to it and did a great job.
Instead of talking about the article now, though, I’d like [...]
Just a few days ago, January 29th, our own Moshe Mandel pulled a Fire Joe Morgan on Mike Lupica due to Lupica’s hypocrisy regarding the Yankees and their spending. Well, Lupica threw out another silly piece on Sunday the 31st. The title? “New York Yankees and…Johnny Damon still have time to make a deal.” [...]
