Chavez in it to win it

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Thirty-four-year-old Steve Finley was the last of the Diamondbacks' great free-agent wave in the winter of 1998, and he signed with a clear vision of the future. "I want to win now," said Finley, who followed Randy Johnson, Todd Stottlemyre, Greg Swindell, Greg Colbrunn and Armando Reynoso into the desert. "I'm not a 22-year-old who'...

Let us now praise Eric Chavez

Some of you top baseball insiders have probably heard about the incredible mental and physical regime that Yankee 3B Eric Chavez undergoes during games in order to keep his frail, injury-prone body from deteriorating. It rivals the intellectual gymnastics that Alphonso maintains on a daily basis in order to keep up his finely honed bloggery.Did you know that on the day of a Yankee...

Eric Chavez Es En Fuego

Eric Chavez es en fuego.  Rough translation: The guy is on fire! Chavez went 9-16 in the Yankees split of the four game series in Detroit. His biggest hit came yesterday, breaking a 3-3 tie in a game that third base umpire Tim Welke almost ruined because he was "too quick."But forget about Welke. Since Alex Rodriguez went down, Chavez has really stepped it up, getting...

Yankeetorial: Yankees do the right thing with Eric Chavez

Supposedly, the SF Giants sought Eric Chavez before the trade deadline and waved a decent package at us, but we Cliff Lee’ed the deal. It might have saved money next winter when the cheap-obsessed ownership tanks the budget with its Calvin Coolidgesque scheme to cut costs, until Yankee children everywhere are eating oatmeal burgers and cobbling shoes from discarded tires. Thank...

With A-Rod On The DL, It's Everyday Eric Chavez

So much for hoping that Alex Rodriguez turns it around in the second half. The turn is now counter-clockwise, as A-Rod will be out for most of the rest of the season with that broken left hand.How the mighty have fallen. Several years ago this would have been perceived as a terrible blow to the New York Yankees. But with A-Rod being a shell of his former self, it's really only...

Eric Chavez's Dad: Maker Of Fine China?

Last month, in the first episode of my new podcast, I said the following about Eric Chavez:"...I think if he doesn't get hurt it's a successful year."Well, that didn't take long. As you probably know, Eric Chavez left last night's game in the middle of his at-bat in the bottom of the 5th inning, complaining of dizziness. We later learned that he'd suffered...

Yankees win but Red Sox Nation tries to rain on Eric Chavez

 YANKEES KEEP WITH TRADITION AND WIN: Eric Chavez (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It was quite a ceremony in Boston yesterday, as the Red Sox celebrated the 100th year anniversary of their home known as Fenway Park. The New York Yankees had a front row seat, and even came dressed for the occasion wearing vintage uniforms of the New York Highlanders, the name of the Yankees prior to 1913...

Eric Chavez You Look Hot In Yankees Pinstripes

Finally, the New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman resigned ex-Athletics hottie Eric Chavez. E. Chavez as an Oakland A Image via Wikipedia It is mind-boggling that this took so long, especially after reading a mid-January post on MLB Trade Rumors that there were a number of teams interested in him. This was not surprising because when Chavez is healthy he is as solid a player as anyone...
