Who cares about the NFL Preseason?

I’m sitting here watching the Yankees game and cursing AJ (Average Joe) Burnett as he self destructs once again. Just as I’m starting to fume I see a little ad in the bottom left saying that the New York Giants first preseason game is this Saturday, August 13th. For about 5 seconds, I got super…

Joe Paterno is a badass

If you’re reading this, you know who Joe Paterno is. If you know anything about any sport at all, you know about old man, JoePa. I’m not going to bore you with his incredible legacy that you already know (and if you don’t, immediately do your research before proceeding) but the old guy is 84…

Hurry back, ARod

FitzandVig are big ARod guys.  Even during the unclutchest of times (pre 2009 minus 2007), we have always recognized that Rodriguez is a guy that you needed in the lineup to GET TO the playoffs, even if he struggled mightily once there (until he gift wrapped the 2009 title for Yankee Universe, thank you Alex). …

Dellin Betances won’t be joining Manny in AAA… yet

With Andrew Brackman getting shelled at 3A, our Three Killer B’s have downgraded to a Pair of (future) Aces.  At 2A Trenton, Dellin Betances and Manny Banuelos had performed similarly.  Both prospects sported an ERA around 3.50 with a slight edge going to Betances in K/9 and WHIP categories in AA ball.  Both pitchers have had command…

Terry Francona. Riverboat Gambler.

Strange thing happened during the game yesterday.  Bottom sixth, two men on, one out, Jason “I keep my mask on when I fight” Varitek at the plate.  Varitek can’t hit (numbers here) anymore, yet took a hack at a 3-0 pitch. Varitek popped up, and the potential rally was killed.  Given the same situation, Terry “Greek God”…

Oh Mo! Not again!

Yanks lose 3-2 in 10 innings – drop 2 of 3 to the Francona Bad Guys.  After a tough 8 ½ inning battle (Garcia and the pen looked great), the NY Good Guys had a one run lead and all that stood in the way of a series win was a shut down 9th inning…

ARod plays poker. Oh no!

In the latest round of “Old Guys Caring Way Too Much About Nothing“, Alex Rodriguez has recently fallen under the watchful eye (huh?) of Major League Baseball.  ARod apparently played in some high roller poker tourneys (sounds like no charges will be filed by the way) that Hollywooders such as Tobey Maguire, Leo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Matt…
