MARLBORO, NY – It was on this date in 1915 that a German submarine sank the Lusitania and thrust the U.S. of A. into World War I.

23 Comments

SPANISH HARLEM, NY – I have finally come to my senses, I’m officially a Mets fans! Who am I kidding? I love the Yankees. However, some (and Junior Blader) have pointed out that the Mets don’t get enough love on this site – which was initially dedicated to them – so to appease many of our […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – If you regularly pinch-hit enough are you a pinch-hitter? That’s my tree-falling-with-nobody-around question. Mull that over while I dive into today’s piece.

10 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – Granted, Spring Training has all a bit giddy… distracted even. And that’s partly why we didn’t get this piece up earlier.

HAPPY NOTE: Regular Tuesday Titan, Big Ben Whitney is all jelly today as he and the Missus welcomed twin baby girls on Sunday night.

NEW YORK,  NY – As the Yankees season was being bashed into the night by Hanley Ramirez, repeatedly, a friend said to me, “it’s all house money for the Yankees anyway.” While I do agree that Cashman did the Yanks’ future right, it made me wonder if Yankee fans are getting ahead of themselves. Have we seen […]
