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!

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

Prospect Nation 2014: #4 2B/OF Cesar Hernandez

Cesar Hernandez, image- Jay Floyd Signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent at the age of 16 in 2006, Cesar Hernandez swiftly proved himself as a capable prospect that had quite a future in baseball. Last year, the young Venezuelan was honored as a Triple-A All-Star and made his big league debut. This year, he'll be doing everything in his power to earn another chance to compete at the top level of the sport. Hernandez, a switch-hitter, made his professional debut with the Phillies' Venezuelan Summer League team in 2007. In two seasons there, he tallied a .296 batting average with three home runs and 45 RBI in 114 games. He followed that effort with a campaign in which he batted .267 with five doubles and a triple in 41 games for the rookie level Gulf Coast League Phillies in 2009. The following season, with the short-season Class A Williamsport Crosscutters, Hernandez was voted as the Most Valuable Player of the club by his teammates and was a New York-Penn Leag
