The interleague game between the New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs has been postponed because of bad weather. The teams will make up the game Wednesday as part of a day-night doubleheader.
The Las Vegas rockers offer up a potential song to a star NBA player and discuss how they narrowly averted disaster at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
The Cubs lost 96 games last season. Young outfielder Junior Lake looks to be part of the turnaround.
According to a report on NikkanSports.com, the Yankees are one of five finalists in the running to sign Masahiro Tanaka.
The Cubs are trying to sell Masahiro Tanaka on hope, that he could be part of the turnaround if their prospects pan out, and they’re selling the same thing to their fans.
There’s been a new development in the pursuit of Masahiro Tanaka. The Japanese right-hander has at least three legitimate suitors, with a fourth apparently entering the fray on Thursday.
Team officials say they held focus groups before deciding on Clark, and fans told them they wanted a more family-friendly atmosphere at Wrigley Field.
The Mets are reportedly interested in outfielder Curtis Granderson, who is likely to turn down the Yankees’ qualifying offer of $14.1 million.
Girardi was reportedly interested in exploring the Chicago Cubs’ opening, but Yankees brass made it clear they wanted a speedy resolution.
Say it ain’t so, Joe! The Yankees manager “wants to formally explore the Cubs’ opening after weeks of back-channel feelers,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Yankees want Joe Girardi back — so they’d better work quickly. New York will have less than a month to hammer out a deal before the Chicago Cubs can make their move.
The huge hits are even more than the Yankees hoped for when they got the good-natured Soriano in a trade with the Chicago Cubs in late July.
These are hard days for the New York Yankees. When the big move is the re-acquisition of Alfonso Soriano from the Chicago Cubs and it’s one that makes complete sense, you know the Yankees are in trouble.
Soriano will provide the power boost the Yankees desperately need. He’s also improved as a fielder with age and will add clubhouse leadership.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano has a list of all the MLB teams that he would waive his no-trade clause to join. The Yankees are on that list.
