    Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports brings us this exclusive report: Burgeoning agent Jay-Z is wooing Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig, hoping to add the 22-year-old to the growing stable of athletes he represents, two sources told Yahoo! Sports. During a mid-June trip to New York, Puig was invited to a party at a club Jay-Z owns after a Dodgers…

    Just announced on ESPN’s SportsCenter, here are the participants for the 2013 Home Run Derby, which will take place next Monday at 8 p.m. ET at Citi Field in New York. Keep in mind that all of the players selected were also chosen for the All-Star Game. So there’s no Giancarlo Stanton here. Oh well.…

  4. Jay-Z has a Scott Boras dis on his new album

    Jul 3, 2013, 9:37 PM EDT

    jay-z getty

    Scott Boras admitted to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal in April that he was blindsided by Robinson Cano‘s decision to abruptly leave the Boras Corporation for a new sports agency started by rap mogul Jay-Z. So it’s probably safe to say that Boras is not going to like this: [Jay-Z], who recently began work as a…

    Jul 3, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    The reigning MVP has some heavy-hitting competition this year. Let’s see if he can hold them off. AL OPS leaders: 1.136 – Miguel Cabrera: .368/.458/.678, 26 HR, 85 RBI, 2 SB in 323 AB 1.126 – Chris Davis: .329/.405/.721, 31 HR, 80 RBI, 0 SB in 301 AB 1.102 – David Ortiz: .320/.406/.607, 16 HR,…

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds

    Reds 3, Giants 0: Homer Bailey does it again. You can read about all of the important details of his no-hitter here and here. Less mentioned in the aftermath? (a) Homer dropped an F-bomb in a postgame interview when talking about the walk he gave up to blow the perfect game; and (b) the Giants loss…

  8. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:34 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4: Arizona took two leads in this game: a 3-0 lead they held for most of it and then, after the Mets tied it in the ninth, a 4-3 lead in the 13th. The ultimate rally was capped with Andrew Brown’s two-run single. The best part of that, though: Kirk Gibson ordered…

  9. Who is Alex Rodriguez following on Twitter?

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

  10. Heyman: Robinson Cano, Yankees far apart on extension

    Jun 21, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano, Yan Gomes

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports suggests second baseman Robinson Cano and the Yankees are far apart on terms of a contract extension, making it increasingly likely that Cano will head into free agency after the season. Heyman writes: They may well talk, but it remains uncertain whether they have anything to talk about — making…

  11. Yankees dropping in attendance, ratings

    Jun 15, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Yankees starting pitcher Pettitte puts his face into his glove as he comes off the field after giving up a run in the fourth inning against the Angels in an MLB baseball game in Anaheim

    Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal has some interesting figures in his latest column about the Yankees: Through Wednesday, the average ratings for Yankee games on the YES Network were down 38% compared to the same period last season, according to Nielsen figures. The drop is even more remarkable when you consider that last…

  12. The Dodgers TV deal is almost done and they’re gonna spend like crazy

    dodgers logo

    Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that a settlement of the long-brewing Dodgers TV deal has been reached and it will mean about $7 billion for the team over time.  That’s all interesting, but the implications of it are more interesting. Check out this quote from one of the team’s owners when asked…

  13. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 14, 2013, 6:45 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 3, Yankees 2: Looking at the Yankees side of the box score and noting Robinson Cano‘s contributions compared to everyone else’s and this comes to mind. Mark Teixeira, Travis Hafner, Kevin Youkilis and Vernon Wells combined to go 0 for 28 with 12 strikeouts in this marathon game. And while, yes, hats off to…

  14. Athletics defeat Yankees in 18 innings, sweep three-game series

    Nate Freiman Getty

    It took five hours and 34 minutes, but the Athletics finished off a three-game sweep of the Yankees with a 3-2 win in 18 innings this evening at O.Co Coliseum. Nate Freiman played hero for the Athletics, as he dropped a one-out single into left field off Mariano Rivera to drive in John Jaso for…

  15. David Ortiz is done with the Home Run Derby

    Jun 13, 2013, 9:43 AM EDT

    Salvador Perez, David Ortiz

    WEEI spoke with David Ortiz before last night’s game and he made it clear that he’s not participating in any more Home Run Derbys. Why? Not for the reason I thought (you can’t flip your bat and strut in the Home Run Derby). It’s because he’s old, man: “If [Robinson Cano] asks me to do…

  16. News flash: pedestrian player with few homers will not be in Home Run Derby

    Jun 12, 2013, 8:56 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Kansas City Royals

    As we mentioned last night, Robinson Cano is once again the captain of the AL Home Run Derby team and will pick his side’s squad. From the New York Post:  If you think Royals fans were displeased at Robinson Cano for not naming Billy Butler to the AL’s Home Run Derby team last year, they…

  17. David Wright and Robinson Cano named captains for next month’s 2013 Home Run Derby

    Jun 11, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    home run derby

    Major League Baseball is doing that thing again where they pick an American League and National League captain for the Home Run Derby and then let those captains round up a team of competitors. That system got Robinson Cano booed last year in Kansas City because he did not select host city favorite Billy Butler…

  18. Looking at the potentially suspended Biogenesis players

    Jun 4, 2013, 9:50 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    Let’s run down the list of players connected to Tony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic as MLB is reportedly preparing to issue 50- or 100-game suspensions. Listed below are players whose names are found in the Biogenesis documents. Other major leaguers may well be involved, as some of Bosch’s clients were listed in code. Since Bosch is…

    2013 All Star Game Logo

    Gallup has predicted that Jeff Francoeur will lead the balloting. Karl Rove says that these results are skewed. But this is what MLB has so far for the first round of All-Star balloting, with leaders by position, with vote totals: First Base: Chris Davis, 1,176,016 Second Base: Robinson Cano 1,235,230 Third Base: Miguel Cabrera, 1,500,165 Shortstop: Elvis Andrus, 727,555…

  20. Mets win four in a row over Yankees, sweep season series for first time ever

    May 30, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Dillon Gee AP

    The struggling Mets likely would have signed up for an even split this week against the crosstown Yankees, but they ended up taking all four games. Dillon Gee struck out a career-high 12 over 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball tonight in a 3-1 victory over the Yankees. After taking both games at Citi Field…

  21. The NL All-Star starting lineup will outshine the AL’s

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

  22. Robinson Cano homers twice in win over Blue Jays

    May 18, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano Getty

    Robinson Cano homered twice while David Phelps had the longest outing of his career as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Brandon Morrow, who was recently skipped twice in Toronto’s rotation due to neck and back tightness, gave up five runs in five innings in the loss. Cano did…

  23. Yankees School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

  24. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 13, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…

  25. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and hightlights

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:04 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…
