Keidel: For The First Time Since 1977, I’m Ashamed To Be A Yankees Fan

I heard Yankees fans whine about Russell Martin, Joe Girardi, Ichiro Suzuki and, well, everyone but the sainted captain at shortstop. I had to roll my window down a foot in case of car (and fan) sickness.

Silverman: Girardi Must Keep A-Rod On The Bench Against The O’s

Joe Girardi must finish the job. He took the first step when he put Alex Rodriguez (.083 in the series) on the bench in the ninth inning on Wednesday night and had Raul Ibanez pinch-hit for him. He must now leave him there.

Where Does Your Loyalty Lie, Melo? Knicks Star Rooting For O’s Over Yankees

Carmelo Anthony is the undisputed leader of the Knicks, but does his sports loyalty spread across New York City? Not necessarily. The five-time NBA All-Star, who moved from Brooklyn to Baltimore when he was eight years old, is a diehard Orioles fan.

Silverman: Girardi Must Make Difficult Decisions To Keep The Yanks In This Series

He has to give a lineup change serious consideration. It’s not about ego at this point. It’s about surviving and advancing. Chavez could launch a homer or two over the right-field porch, and there’s little doubt that Ibanez would hit the ball hard.

Kallet: MLB’s New Wild Card Format Is Completely Unjust, And I Have A Solution

If Commissioner Selig is so insistent on having an extra Wild Card team in each league, then I have a solution. Is it a perfect solution? By no stretch of the imagination.
