I saw this tweet the other day and honestly, it made me sick. https://twitter.com/brwalkoff/status/1541493152443498497?s=21&t=_KBjHufioDNPiE2jb56yFA The fact that Tatis is even on the ballot is a disgrace. Don’t get me wrong, Nando is one of the faces of the league at this point in his career, especially with our younger generation of fans. The guy is … Continue reading MLB Needs to Change Their Criteria for ASG Votes

Officer Terry Hoitz was the first Yankee Clipper. There’s no denying that. “YOU SHOULDA SHOT A-ROD” is a classic line, and he cost the city a championship and himself a real cop job. If you haven’t seen The Other Guys, please finish reading this blog, then go watch. https://youtu.be/FxkP1T0FCPk But this Isaac Paredes… he’s coming … Continue reading Meet Isaac Paredes, AKA The Yankee Clipper
