This will be a difficult and possibly strange off-season for the New York Yankees. The lawsuit between their star, aging and scandal-ridden third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Major League Baseball has drawn the most attention, but there is more.
Now I am back and living in New England and after giving it very little thought for the longest time, I have suddenly rediscovered baseball. Out of deference to the past I am still a Yankee fan.
The Giants' decision to keep erstwhile two time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, who has had two distinctly sub-par years in a row, from becoming a free agent by signing him to a two-year contract valued at $35 million, deserves some scrutiny.
At the end of the day, trust and respect are the two most important elements in ANY relationship, including the relationship between you and your customer. If you ain't got those two factors, you got nothin'.
"It ain't over till it's over." The quote comes courtesy of famed Yankees catcher turned coach Yogi Berra. Known for his mangled witticisms, Berra centers the baseball play Bronx Bombers, which is an homage to the storied team.
September 21, 2008. A gorgeous summery day in the Bronx. Sunshine, and scattered harmless clouds in the sky. The bat, its white-taped hilt towering above the rubble and fencing around its base.
As an avid Yankees fan, I'm very sad to see Mariano "Mo" Rivera retire after 19 seasons in major league baseball. But I'm excited by the lessons we can all learn from him and how they can help you improve your credit.
As a man always on guard when it comes to the Yankees, I found myself actually wishing Mariano Rivera wasn't leaving baseball. Weird. For his whole career, I'd been wishing him to falter or leave the game, and here I was -- wanting him to stick around and loving the guy.
The Yankees are in a difficult position with Derek Jeter. Navigating the end of Jeter's career so that it ends without him playing for another team, and with the appropriate fanfare and celebration, is in the interest of both Jeter and the Yankees and will require compromise by both sides.
Kids are supposed to be learning to estimate from the start of elementary school so they can stop and say this cannot possibly be the answer, but estimation requires qualities that appear to be neglected in the test prep math curriculum.
Many of us love sports. So, with the attention on women's leadership and advancement, I thought I'd focus on how this issue plays out in the traditionally male-dominated sport industry.
Nobody, even the great Mariano Rivera, is perfect. Great athletes must be able to bounce back from defeat; and Rivera proved over and over he was able to do this.
The Yankees aren't winning with money in 2013 so much as with a makeshift, cobbled together bootleg version of Moneyball
Should we take postseason statistics into consideration when looking at a player's career stats though?
Players who have passed through waivers with nary a claim on them typically aren't the ones that are going to lead you to a World Series Championship, but that doesn't mean you can't find someone useful from the scrap heap.
Just as it was in the Stadium subsidy deal, this controversy is emphatically about the money. Both sides will lawyer up and growl at each other. They will settle for a healthy sum, A-Rod will retire, and baseball will be relieved of its largest headache since the Black Sox.
