Two of Yankees’ bullpen studs came up through New York City


The Yankees have compiled one of the hardest-throwing bullpens in history, and despite the high cost of most of the arms, they didn’t have to go far to learn about two of them. Having reached a deal with free agent right-hander Adam Ottavino this week, the Yankees now have a pair of New York City […]

Michael Vick pulling for his ex-coach in AFC Championship


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — This was after Andy Reid had already helped rescue Michael Vick, after Reid had called and offered the opportunity to continue a football dream shattered by an 21-month prison stay for the quarterback’s role in a dogfighting conspiracy.

Yankees haven’t done enough to take down Alex Cora’s Red Sox


Sure, the Yankees own the better bullpen. But they owned the better bullpen heading into the postseason last October, too. Combined with all the other talent in The Bronx, is that enough to beat the World Series champion Red Sox this time around?
