MLB Jeopardy...Part 11


For $1,000 in the category of douche bag teams that are mistakenly regarded as the class of Major League Baseball, the answer is: The idiot franchise that let a rapper diss them lyrically on their own field prior to a World Series game and later rewarded him with a championship ring.








Question: Who are the New York Yankees?

Correct! The Yankees invited Jay-Z and Alicia Keys to perform their single "Empire State of Mind" prior to game 2 of the World Series last year at Yankee Stadium. The track contains the lyric, "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can." Yankees fans in attendance cheered.

Firstly, the phrase is not true. Also, the Yankees should not have let that happen. If the front office wasn't aware of the lyric before the concert was booked, why didn't the players take exception at some point?

The team should be embarrassed for giving Jay-Z a World Championship ring after he clearly took credit for people buying their merchandise.

And if you didn't notice in the above photograph, the inscription under the brim of Jay-Z's cap that he wore to Yankee Stadium this week, contains that questionable lyric "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can." Yes, he's still making the absurd claim and the Yankees are still dumb enough to invite him into their home.

The Yankees and their fans are clearly simple-minded to allow this embarrassment to continue. I don't believe that other organizations and their fans would be so moronic.

It's no wonder a great majority of sports fans hate the Yankees. They aren't even bright enough to know when a celebrity takes a verbal crap on them. If a big-time Philadelphia musician made a similar claim about one of Philadelphia's teams, I assure you that he or she would be met with serious negative fan reactions, would no longer be held in the same regard and would forever damage his or her career.

NEW YORK! These streets will make you feel brand new, big lights will inspire you...to look stupid in front of the whole world.

I am not biased against any team.

The song doesn't make the Yankees idiots. Rewarding a guy that disrespects the team, the front office and the fans does.

Blindly defending your favorite team, that's original!

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

Ryan Madson is acting questionable

I've seen similar types of "poking fun" entries on other Phillies blogs. When this picture came across my desk today, I figured, "Why not...?" Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!
