...gone. Yesterday former Yankee Hideki Matsui announced his retirement from Major League Baseball, aged 38, after a decade long career in the States which followed a decade playing in his native Japan.
...should have been another step in wiping Barry Bonds' name from the record books, OK wiping it down to 2nd. But A Rod admitted to taking certain substances when he was outed so it's just another roider hitting homers.
...and one series win later. I hadn't blogged about any of the New York Yankees off-season moves but I was very happy at the arrival of Curtis Granderson even before his game and series winning homer against the Sux last night.
...a bear is catholic...and the Pop does shit in the woods. Oh and bulked up ,pockmarked home run hitting slugger Mark McGwire* took steroids through the steroids era of the game.
...is that what the Yanks need? He leads the team in all the main batting stats so far and then he goes and pitches a scoreless inning against the Rays.
Alex Rodriguez becoming the youngest player to hit 500 home runs by almost a year is some feat, now hejust has to go on in pinstripes not only to get the total record but to also get a ring.
