  2. Selig Says Things Aren't Rosy For Rose

    Selig says things aren't rosy for Rose FEBRUARY 16, 2000 Print it! MADISON, Wis. -- Bud Selig pretty much said Pete Rose has no chance of getting back into baseball as long as he's commissioner. While Selig hasn't officially responded to Rose's application for reinstatement, he made his strongest public statement yet on the career hits leader. "There is not a scintilla of give in that area," Selig said Wednesday during a speech at the Rotary Club of Madison. Following an...

  3. Ok, this really bothered me...

    Once again, I was lurking over at the Red Sox chat and reading what was going on. There were some heckling Yankees fans, and there wasn't a problem (just the ANNOYING Yank-me bs (GET ORIGINAL, DAMMIT!!!)). After a while, however, this Yankees fan comes on and announces that he heard on CNN that Nomar Garciaparra was killed. This guy logs on with about 5 different names talking about how Nomar is dead and was murdered by his gay lover. I was incredibly angered by this and thought it was in...

    Montreal pitcher struggles during medical exam JUPITER, Florida (AP) -- Pitcher Hideki Irabu, traded from the New York Yankees to the Montreal Expos in the offseason, had a MRI on his right elbow Saturday.

  9. Remembering your first time....

    Although I've been a Yankee fan since birth, I have never been to Yankee Stadium! I've seen them play in Toronto, Cleveland, and Baltimore, but not in NY yet. Hopefully, I will get there this summer, and I can just imagine what it feels like to walk into that legendary place full of history and Yankee pride for the first time. So I ask you all...what does it feel like? do you remember your first time?

    Not just a Yankee Tuesday, February 15, 2000 By MONSY ALVARADO Staff Writer LITTLE FALLS -- Baseball Hall of Famer Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra may be known for appearing in a record 14 World Series with the Yankees, but the Montclair resident also still treasures his appearance in a greater moment in history.

  13. Strike in the forecast

    I hate to say this at this time of the year but I see another baseball strike coming when the latest contract is up. Salaries are escalating to the point where the minimum will be 1million dollars and that is ridiculous I am sorry also to say. I hope that I am wrong but baseball is heading in that direction once again. Need for greed. Donald Fehr is the Villain here. His main interest is how much money he can make and thinks nothing of the fans either!

  15. Remembering Double Headers

    I have a 13 year old son and I tell him how double headers were common place. I remember on a warm day, usually a Sunday you get to the game at about 11 and take in batting practice. And in those days the Yankees use to hit last at batting practice so you use to see them, not like now. But yu sit back and enjoy 2 games for the price of a grandstand seat of $1.50. And the games lasted about 2 hours. God how I miss those days. We use to have at least 4 to 6 hot dogs that if I remember cost a...
