ADD DESTROYING CRIMINAL EVIDENCE TO A-ROD’S RAP LIST? On Friday afternoon, Michael Schmidt of the New York Times broke the story and identified Alex Rodriguez as the player who allegedly purchased documents from a former employee of Biogenesis of America in an attempt to destroy evidence linking him to the anti-aging clinic’s distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. When the Miami New Times broke the story in January, I remember saying “this is the White Whale. This is the [...]
This time, Terry Collins knew what Johan Santana was doing and seemingly both are on the same page, even though the left-hander was mum today on both his throwing and the death of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. After mugging with several friends on the Venezuelan WBC team, Santana long-tossed in the outfield, and followed that with several pitches off the mound from where he fielded bunts. The timetable is a bullpen session, then batting practice and possibly pitching in [...]
The funniest thing I heard with the Yankees and their contract negotiations with Robinson Cano is Scott Boras would take this to the open market to possibly draw the Mets in as an antagonist.

The Mets go to the Big City for the games at the new Yankee Stadium on Friday night, and Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The Mets are on a seven game winning streak, and the Yankees have just lost two [...]
The World Series Ed Leyro wrote about yesterday is likely to come to fruition—Yankees/Phillies, unless the Dodgers and/or Angels sweep the remaining games. And the way New York and Philly are playing, that’s about as likely as snow in the Caribbean. So we’re going to have to face facts here. Yes, a Yankees/Phillies series is going to be like a Mets/Red Sox series would be to a Yankees fan—and we all know how that one [...]
