The New York Yankees are riding high in Chicago but there’s still a few things that need sorting out for this red-hot squad.

THE YANKEES WIN! Honestly, hearing that John Sterling call for the New York Yankees never gets old.

This time, they did it with a huge night from Aaron Hicks. But where is Jacoby Ellsbury?

Ellsbury has been nursing a nerve injury in his left risk as a result of an incredible catch Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays. As far as the Yankees are concerned, they are hoping to have him back soon.

While Ells has been recuperating on the bench, he still managed to get up to the plate and draw a crucial ninth-inning walk to help lead the Yankees to victory.

Ellsbury has missed four straight games and while his hitting has been impressive, Hicks has been even more impressive.

So, who gets the call when Ellsbury is healthy? Or do we just go back to the old lineup that was working pretty well?

In other news, JJ from Barstool Sports gave us a sneak peek at Derek Jeter’s Monument Park plaque. That’s right, Mother’s Day is important, but Derek Jeter retirement day is pretty high up there too.

All the memories just came flooding back. He may not have been a home run hitter, but Jeter got the job done. And he deserves that plaque more than anyone.

Sorry, Mom…Mother’s Day will consist of me fawning over the legend that is Derek Jeter. Hope you don’t mind.

That’s all for the buzz with the Yankees today. Now we get to watch the Yankees go for a sweep over the defending champs. Break out the brooms, let’s do some chores.


  1. He may not have been a home run hitter, but Jeter managed to squeeze out 260 of them…and if he ever played half his games in Fenway or Baltimore, he would have more homers than Cal. Blasphemy? Munson called Fenway a phone booth, and the power alleys in Baltimore are said to be less than the 365 markers on the fence. And for the record, he was a better hitter than Cal. As Casey would say, you can look it up.
