Back in 1987, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Bell refused to talk to the beat writers who surrounded his locker after the game because Suzyn Waldman present. At the time, women had just started to get locker room access. Bell started screaming at her as she approached his locker. Enter Barfield.

News just broke that CC Sabathia will now be entering an alcohol rehabilitation center and miss the entire postseason. This couldn’t come at a worse time with the Yankees about to compete for their playoff lives tomorrow night. If they win tomorrow against the Houston Astros, one has to wonder how the rotation will be set for up for the American League Division Series. The game still has to be played, so lets not get ahead of ourselves.
With that said, the main concern is getting CC back on his feet. I think I can speak on behalf of all Yankees fans in saying that we wish him all the best and hope to see him back on the mound as soon as possible.

If you were listening to the Yankees telecast, you must have heard Michael Kay and David Cone break the news that Masahiro Tanaka has just landed on the 15-day disabled list with what they’re calling a “tender wrist.” That sounds like it’s not connected to the UCL tear and we may not have to sound the alarms just yet. Coney said that this report begs a lot of questions and wonders if Tanaka is compensating because of his elbow.
At the same time, no injury to Masahiro’s arm should be taken lightly. According to reports, Brian Cashman has stated that there is “no change” in Tanaka’s elbow. He was also asked if this could be a Tommy John surgery “precursor”…to which he said, “could be.”
Tanaka will be shut down for 7-10 days. We may not see him for another month or so. Nobody knows for sure. Now, we play a waiting game and see how this unfolds.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far this season…it’s that the Yankees offense can make anyone want to drink. In the bottom of the 7th inning of Thursday night’s game against the Blue Jays, Jimmy Fallon chugged a beer in front of Lorne Michaels in the Legends seats. The man was thirsty!

- Not everyone in Japan knows who Derek Jeter is. Some think he’s a catcher. Others have no idea who he is. That must be refreshing for him.
- John Sterling unfortunately lost everything in an apartment fire. He lost all of his World Series rings in the blaze, except for 2009 (which he was wearing). Alex Rodriguez even offered him a place to stay.
- Hannaah Davis landed the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Swimsuit Issue. I met her at the “Swim City” event in Manhattan and I got a chance to meet her. She was absolutely beautiful. I even asked her to take a selfie with me and she gladly did. She’s got my approval (not that she needs it).
- Joe Torre wants everyone to keep quiet about A-Rod and let him play. Mr. T stated, “Obviously, what Alex did was wrong. He admits that. There’s nothing left for him to do but play baseball.”
- Mitchell & Ness put together a map showing their best selling vintage jersey sales by state. Mickey Mantle’s 1951 Yankees jersey lead Idaho. Lou Gehrig’s 1932 Yankees jersey took Wyoming.
- Alex Rodriguez enrolled in a marketing class (Marketing 644) and scored a 44 on a test.
- Reggie Jackson is selling the old Yankee Stadium letters in Sotheby’s auction house.
- Derek Jeter went to Japan to assist Hideki Matsui in an effort to raise money for the 2011 tsunami and earthquake relief that hit the Tohoku area.

I can’t count how many times I watched ‘The Sandlot’ as a child. Whatever number it was, it was an unhealthy one. With some time to burn in spring training, some players on the Yankees roster re-enacted the classic scene in the movie when Smalls realizes the ball he handed over to “The Beast” was autographed by the greatest ballplayer who ever lived, Babe Ruth (and not some wimpy deer). The video stars: Dellin Betances, Brian McCann, CC Sabathia, Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury. McCann deserves an Oscar nomination for playing Ham Porter.

In just three short weeks, the Yankees will take the field in the Bronx for Opening Day. They’ll be opening up the season at home against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 6th (1:05PM ET). After this brutally cold winter, there’s nothing I want more than a beer in my hand, a sunny day and a seat at the ballpark. See-ya then!

Brian Cashman recently told Mike Lupica on ESPN Radio that “the captaincy should be retired with number two.”
No more captains for the Yankees? Please. I love Derek Jeter as much as the next guy, but enough is enough. Yes, that’s right…I said it. Derek Jeter is a mortal being…just like Lou Gehrig and Thurman Munson before him. There’s nothing that make Derek any more special or deserving than those two, so I don’t see why the New York Yankees shouldn’t have another captain.
Keith Olbermann has called Cashman’s comments as the “dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”
After Lou Gehrig passed away from ALS (now known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), Yankees manager Joe McCarthy stated that the club would never have another Yankees captain. Years went by and the organization didn’t have a captain. In 1976 that changed, as George Steinbrenner appointed Thurman Munson to be captain. Just three years later (1979), Thurman died in a tragic plane crash, leaving the Yankees captainless. Nettles, Randolph, Guidry, and Mattingly followed him. What I’m trying to say here is…nobody is bigger than the interlocking NY on their chest.
George Steinbrenner once said:
“I have always been very, very careful about giving such a responsibility (Captain of the New York Yankees) to one of my players, but I can not think of a single player that I have ever had who is more deserving of this honor than Derek Jeter. He is a young man of great character and has shown great leadership qualities. He believes, as I do, what General (Douglas) MacArthur said, that ‘there is no substitute for victory.’ To him, and to me, it’s second only to breathing.”
I don’t believe they need to appoint a new captain right away, but when the right person comes along I don’t see anything wrong with giving that rank to a deserving player. I think you can safely bet that the Yankees will find somebody to be named captain in future years. And if you like to bet like me, you should check out: www.SportsBettingInfo.com. Life goes on, and so do the Yankees.
