Jeter's position as the player with the most magic leadership and intangibles will not last much longer as he is getting old. Fortunately, there is another player ready to take that mantle. That player, ironically, plays for the Yankees top rival, and is Dustin Pedroia.
This foursome was the more or less regular Yankee infield from 2009-2012, leading the Yankees to one World Series victory and three other post-season appearances. This raises the question of where this infield fits among the greatest infields in Yankee history.
Alex Rodriguez is one of the most disliked players on the New York Yankees and in all of baseball. To a great extent, Rodriguez is simply guilty of getting old and declining accordingly.
There is a rhythm to the baseball season that fits neatly into the lives of devoted fans of the game. It is nearly religious. Just as you can count on Easter Sunday, Yom Kippur and Kwanzaa popping up on your calendar, you can also count on pitchers and catchers reporting for spring training.
After an extremely hard fought series, the Knicks are slightly beat up. Yet, they proved they could win in the playoffs with defense and experience. Hopefully it won't be another 40 years before New York City gets another championship.
Instead of insulting Boston or the Celtics during this year's NBA playoffs, I have been simply enjoying and analyzing the games and discussing them respectfully with friends who are Boston fans. I encourage you to do the same.
When the Dodgers won their one and only World Series in Brookyln, a ticket to Game 4 could be had for $7.35, or less than the cost of a hot dog or a beer at the current Barclays center, which sits on the spot where Walter O'Malley wanted to build his new Dodgers' Stadium.
Not many people know that Fitzgerald wrote a section for The Great Gatsby in which his characters decide, one hot summer afternoon, to go and watch a ballgame.
One of the central challenges in fighting terrorism is vigilantly maintaining our open societies, public events and civic life in spite of real threats. Ironically, we will become more vulnerable if this vigilance were to weaken.
Cano has evolved into one of the best second baseman in Yankee history. It is hard for Yankee fans to imagine the Yankees without Cano, but it is all too easy to imagine the Yankees in 2018-2021 or so with an overpriced Cano splitting his time between first base and DH.
Boston is on a path towards healing. But one thing New Yorkers know are the reverberating ripples of influence a terrorist attack brings not only on a city and its people, but also on its economy as a whole. Let's keep the city vibrant. Here are 10 attractions in and around Beantown.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg did not invent the concept of the "public-private partnership." But he has aggressively pushed "private money" within the New York City Parks system, particularly under former Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, who left last year.
With the focus on projecting the impact of 35 year-old Kobe Bryant's ruptured left Achilles on the Lakers' playoff prospects and his future in the sport, there hasn't been much said about the implications of Bryant having played hurt.
The 2013 New York Yankees: Injuries on top of injuries. Newly penurious owners. A lineup of assorted castoffs and veterans past their prime. Not a pretty picture -- in fact, it looks to be the weakest team the franchise has put on the field in at least two decades.
Despite the good first weak enjoyed by the Mets, and the recent hot streak by the Yankees, this season may be a rough one for big league baseball in New York. It is possible that, for the first time since 1992, both the Yankees and Mets will finish below .500.
With Sterling a part of the Yankees broadcast booth since 1989, it might appear that his signature shtick may be getting stale. So I thought of way to freshen it up a bit... home run calls for Yankees opponents!
