Bronx Bombers is the latest sports drama from producers Fran Kirmser and Tony Ponturo, the team responsible for 2012’s Magic/Bird and 2011’s Lombardi.
Baseball is romantic and it is cruel. The Yankees have four games left to play but their season is now effectively over and the playoffs are out of reach. The sun has set on two pillars of Yankee folklore and the impressive charade of a mostly bench player roster has finally worn down and come to grips with a reality many thought earlier this year was destiny.
Kenny Ducey and Eric Mollo discuss the All-Star Game, and the shaky performance from Neil Diamond, plus look ahead to A-Rod's return and the Pirate's second half.
Derek Jeter made his return to the Bronx on Thursday afternoon, and for at least one day, restored hope to Yankee fans young and old.
Nolan Silbernagel and Kris Venezia sat down with columnist for MLB.com Matthew Leach to talk about the state of the Yankees. Leach weighed in on his thoughts about how the team has performed so far, what having Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter back will do for the Pinstripes, and who the first half MVP of the Bronx Bombers has been so far this year.
The Mets swept the Yankees for the first time that the sixteen year-series has been played, and it was only the fourth time they won the season series. Contained within those four games was the first blown save in 2013 for the great Mariano Rivera (the first time he failed to record an out in his storied career), a 9-4 blowout much needed by a struggling offense, and four starters who pitched into the sixth inning or deeper.
Kenny Ducey and Kris Venezia discuss the possibility of Brian Wilson joining the New York Mets, as well as other news including Andy Pettitte's reunion with Joe Torre at the WBC and Justin Upton vetoing a trade to Seattle.
In November of 2007, the Yankees signed 36 year-old Jorge Posada to a four-year, $52 million pact. At the time, they knew that it would probably be the final contract handed out to their longtime backstop, but what the Yankees didn’t predict is that his fellow core four buddies would still be marching on together in the year 2013.
Kenny Ducey and Kris Venezia react to the announcement of MVP, as well as the signing of Melky Cabrera and other news around the league.
For the fourth straight ALCS playoff game, the New York Yankees’ bats fell dormant, falling to Detroit 8-1. For the second time in six years, the Tigers are going to World Series.
In fact, the last time the Tigers made it there, they knocked off both the Yankees and the Oakland Athletics. They just might face the St. Louis Cardinals again too. For the Yankees, the game was a fitting end to their offensive nightmare of a postseason, and now an unpredictable offseason looms.
