Posada and Pettitte Ceremonies Highlight Upcoming Yankees Series With Indians

Posada and Pettitte Ceremonies Highlight Upcoming Yankees Series With Indians

The Indians dealt the Yankees a crushing blow last week when the two clubs met in Cleveland for a three-game set. While the Bronx Bombers were able to salvage the final game of the series to avoid a sweep, the series loss at the hands of the underachieving Tribe knocked them out of first-place in the AL East, allowing the surging Toronto Blue Jays to assume division supremacy at the time.

The Yankees have since regained control of first-place, albeit by one game, but with Toronto still right on their back, it won’t be easy to fend them off the rest of the way. As a result, if they are unable to retain their lead over the rest of the pack, the Yankees will have to squeak into the postseason with a Wild Card berth, and considering how many AL teams are still in the hunt, it certainly won’t be an easy task.

In any event, New York will have an immediate opportunity to avenge their series loss to the Indians when they hook up with them once again starting on Thursday, with primary tickets starting at $20 for each game of the series. This time, however, it will be at Yankee Stadium, and with a 34-21 home record, the Yankees are a good bet to get the last laugh in this four-game series. At the same time, with the Indians desperately clinging onto their own playoff lives, the Yankees could also potentially put a dagger into their season, while making up some ground in their own quest for the postseason.


First Sharknado now sharks in baseball?

As the weather continues to get warmer, more and more sharks have been seen at grocery stores, music festivals, and swimming near the shores of places where people swim and vacation.

"I didn't plan on seeing Jaws in the water." said Eric Fins who crapped his pants while vacationing in Cape Cod. "I just hoped that sharks weren't attracted to my poop. They wasn't and I am hear to tell the tale."

We are now learning that fisherman Hank JellyFish, who has been trying to learn if Great Whites suffer from depression for some dumb reason, is trying to warn the public about the possibility that a shark could end up at a baseball game. Are theee even odds for something like that? You can see baseball odds
at top online sports book.

"I waste a lot of time and money trying to figure out meaningless stuff about sharks. You've heard people say that anything is possible right? That is all I am saying." he said.

"Have you seen the pictures on Yahoo of that shark in shallow water? Do you think he can't end up walking into a stadium? I think that Gardner would be just as shocked if he saw a dorsal fin go by on the field. I am just saying, it could happen and we should be ready." he added.

Barnacles, who smells of rotten fish, never considered the possibility that sharks don't go on land and probably couldn't fit through the turnstiles, but he said he will stop at nothing to make sure his message gets to MLB.

"We have to prevent the next attack, even if it is at a stadium near you." he concluded

Yankees.com Provides Most Affordable Options For Weekend Series With Seattle Mariners

As the All-Star Game festivities have taken place in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Great American Ball Park, the New York Yankees sit atop the standings in the American League East division by 3.5 games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays. The Baltimore Orioles are right behind them at 4 games back, with the Toronto Blue Jays also trailing closely by 4.5 games. And now, the never-say-die Boston Red Sox, who were once much farther behind the rest of the pack not too long ago, currently sit a manageable 6.5 games out with plenty of season remaining.

Before the Yankees start the second half of the season, first baseman Mark Teixeira, relief pitcher Dellin Betances and outfielder Brett Gardner were selected to participate in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game. Betances attained his spot on the roster as the Yankees’ original lone selection, while Teixeira and Gardner were later installed as injury replacements.

New York returns to the baseball diamond for a weekend series against the up-and-down Seattle Mariners when the second half of the season begins on Friday. The three-game set runs from July 17-19, and according to TiqIQ.com, the average ticket price for the three games on the secondary market is $82.34. Although many customers think looking for Yankees tickets on the secondary market is the most affordable route, Yankees.com has favorable pricing for almost all sections throughout this weekend’s games.

For Friday’s series opener, Yankees.com has 300-level seats that are cheaper in comparison with any other seller. For instance, a seat in Sec. 329, Row 2 costs $48 on Yankees.com when the same seat cost $56 on the secondary market. This is especially true for the middle game on Saturday, when better pricing can be found on Yankees.com for all four sections:


Are the Yankees and Orioles still rivals?

Trailing the Yankees by a couple games in the AL East, Baltimore can make up some ground with a strong showing in the next few days.

Orioles fan Andy Treemont is ready.

"Everyone knows the color of fear is Orange. Orioles represent orange and instilling fear in the Yankees stupid faces."

In the next few days, the O's will have a number of tough decisions to make with Miggy Gonzalez and Jonathan Schoop set to come back from the disabled list. Wei-Yin Chen will also be recalled after his short stint in the minors with the Frederick Keys.

They also have Kevin Gausman, Mike Wright, and Tyler Wilson in the minor leagues, all of whom have the potential to join the staff should an injury befall the current Orioles rotation. Therefore, the O's could look to pull off a trade with that excess of starting pitchers.

Baltimore Orioles

Is it possible for Mark Teixeira to stay healthy?

No.

This guy has to be one of the fragilest around. When he was on the Angels and Texas he seemed to be pretty solid, but the last few years in pinstripes were ridiculous.

Now, a neck MRI?

We asked one guy who has a neck to give us his opinion.

"My neck hurts when I sleep on it funny. Not funny ha ha, but funny like i slept on a pile of screwdrivers funny." he said. "I never had an MRI, but I can't imagine they are good. Bring up Aaron Judge already."

We aren't quite sure why he threw the Aaron Judge comment in there at the end, but we think he is getting close.

Yankees are playing Philly, then off to Houston for four.

Fan wants refund after terrible Father's Day game

Jimmy Crackers has been following the Yankees very closely this year. He calculates every magic number, checks out match-ups and is convinced the Yankees will still win the World Series.. But not if games go like the one today.

"I want my money back. Today was not a good day. I'm no fair weather fan. First of all you have to stand by your team. First of all you got to cheer on your players. First of all, you got to wear cool looking sunglasses. Know what I'm saying?"

Frankly we didn't know what he was saying, but he continued.

"The Yankees are better than the Red Sox. The Yankees are better than Boston. They are better than everyone. I heard a guy the other day say they were done. You know what I say. I say, in times like these, you got to climb up to the top of the mountain. You got to sail to the middle of the sea. You have to climb a tall tree, but be careful, you don't want to get hurt. You know what I'm saying?"

Again, Frankly we don't, but we hope that Jimmy Crackers is right.

Houston Astros

Call me Tammy?

Tom Brady is a spokesman for UGGs.Is he now transitioning too?

Since he wears girlie boots, does that mean he has to sport girlie hairstyles?

We talked to Franz Pittles, a hairstylist to get the scoop.

"Oh my my my. What is on his head? He clearly crosses the line of being not so fabulous. That style doesn't go with those shoes. Someone please bring me a hand fan, I am overheating over here." said Franz who loves Broadway shows and eating pints of ice cream.

So his hairstyles aren't in style?

"He needs some spritz and some tips for his tips. I would need at least a day with him to highlight his highlights, curl this, perm that and have a talk with him about what dresses to wear." he added.

Call me Tammy? We will see.

Fan wants healthier choices at the stadium.

Parker Willis has been eating hotdogs for years. He loves the taste of nitrates and especially loves how lean and healthy they are.

"I fear of the day when hotdogs will be genetically modified and that scares me. Who knows what they will put into hotdogs when that happens? I mean, I want to eat healthy. I fear that if I am watching a game, I will be eating garbage." said Parker as he sipped on a bucket of soda.

Hotdogs are currently made up of a bunch of mystery meats and anything else you can find on the floor. If they are genetically modified, could they get any worse?

"I wake up in the morning and walk around the house crop dusting my family with my gas. When I am done doing that, I boil myself a hotdog, drink the water and am on my way. It makes me feel good about myself and I like that." added Parker who was clutching his heart.

GMO's have been the cats meow lately in the food industry. It is only a matter of time before they find out that they do some damage.

"That's what I have been saying. Let hotdogs just be healthy, like they are now. I like to just throw my cigarette butts on the ground and act like it isn't littering. I am too busy to find an ashtray to throw them out at."

What do think about food with GMO's?
