The Yankees have played in 16 of the last 17 postseasons; a feat 29 other fan bases would kill for. Except Yankee fans aren’t satisfied. Success isn’t defined by making it to October, it’s defined by World Series rings. And one World Series title in the last decade just isn’t going to cut it. The problem is, there are five main obstacles that they need to overcome to get number 28. "Tri-State Sports Guys" co-host, Mike DePalma, breaks it down after the jump.
If you haven't heard yet, Yanks closer Mariano Rivera notched his record-setting 602nd career save today as he closed out a 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins. We were there to capture the final historic out at Yankee Stadium. Check it out after the jump.
Last fall we posted a still frame of a group of hot girls sitting behind home plate during the ALCS game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees. One of the girls, Amber Leigh Hartman, saw our post and quickly identified herself as one of the smokeshows. I was on BarstoolSports today (typical) and saw a picture El Pres posted of a pretty familiar face. The girl in the story on Barstool looked very similar to Amber so I took a pic (of the picture), sent it over to Amber and got confirmation. She is starting to blow up again so let's feature her pictures again!
Whether you're a Yankee fan or not you have to admit Nick Swisher is the man. His energy, charisma, philanthropy and love of the game are just what the Doctor Gooden ordered for baseball. However, those traits aren't just confined to the field and personal appearances, they carry over to world of Twitter and Facebook as well. Recently, NBC called him a "social media superstar" and if you've been following Swish on those platforms, you know the dude's always got something interesting to say or show. Read more about Swish and see his best twitpics after the jump!
Drew Brees was recently awarded Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Brees not only won a Super Bowl against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts last February, but has made significant contributions off the field as well. Of course you tend to not hear about it since our sports news off the field typically focurs on DUIs or domestic abuse, a player’s displeasure with their current team, or better yet, where they are taking their “talents.” Brees is a breath of fresh air and we 100% fully endorse SI's selection. To ensure we have MORE of him and LESS of the other jackasses, we're doling out "awards" for the Worst Sportsmen of the Year.
For 4 long weeks, the douchiest douches have done battle to see who will reign supreme as the Douche-Off champion. Our friends at Campus Socialite, Bleacher Report, and Douchebag Maneuvers submitted their picks and we have to say we at COED know our douches. They say douches can smell their own kind. Which is bad for us. Check out our countdown to the Douche-Off champion. Who will it be?
A couple weeks ago, we brought you the hottest WAGs of the League Championship Series. Now that the teams for the World Series are confirmed, we revisit the trophy wives, road beef, better halves, and mistresses of the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants. We honestly have no idea how these guys can think about baseball with this eye candy trick or treating all over the place. And, if we're Ian Kinsler, we're wifing up Amber Leigh Hartman like yesterday.
COED readers vehemently boycotted Campus Socialite's DOTW, Josh Hamilton. He didn't register ONE SINGLE VOTE! Last week's winner, The Sitch, beat out a woman who makes fun of a dying 7 year old girl. We're in the final homestretch, folks. 3 weeks down. 2 to go. Speaking of 2's, we only have 2 dooshers doing battle this round.
The Texas Rangers are poised to win their first AL pennant ever with a win over the New York Yankees tonight. Some have att…
She originally caught our eye during Saturday's ALCS game between the Rangers and Yankees. We apparently caught HER eye because she messaged us on Twitter stating she was a "good luck charm." Seeing as the Rangers are up 2-1, we're not arguing. Since then we posted a gallery of pics from her Facebook profile, which caused Sports Illustrated to stand up and take notice. Before she gets "too famous" for us, we thought we'd get to know the 23 year old die-hard Rangers and Cowboys fan a little more.
We posted a still frame of a group of hot girls sitting behind home plate at Saturday's ALCS game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees. One of the girls, Amber Leigh Hartman, saw our post and quickly identified herself as one of the smokeshows. So, it's only appropriate we feature her in all her beautiful blonde glory.
The League Championship Series begins Friday so COED decided to profile the hottest wives and girlfriends (WAGs). Face it, most players put on the cleats for the cleat chasers. Hot girls are drawn to professional athletes like Snooki is to a pickle. These women are proof it's good to be a Yankee, Phillie, Ranger, or Giant.
These select individuals excel on the baseball diamond but their successes circling the bases with the ladies don't match up. We have a feeling the following players are far from players that crush a lot. Now entering the game, Ashley Dupre.
Every now and then a team comes along with the intuition to annihilate every possible opponent and show just how much better they are than everyone else. I'm not talking your old fashioned 13 win NFL season which is then followed up by some competitive post season games and then hopefully a championship. No, what we got here are team's that just straight up said screw it and decided to kill your team, my team, and everyone else's team.
With the MLB postseason kicking off Wednesday, two teams, the Rangers and the Reds, navigate fairly new territory. Both teams haven't been in the postseason discussion for quite a while. Here's our assessment of each team's chances in this year's Playoffs along with a rundown of the other MLB teams with the longest current playoff droughts.
With the baseball season about 75 percent done it is about time to start considering who to lavish with awards at the end of the season. This year there is an exceptional group of players that are deserving of the honor in both the American and National Leagues.
When it comes to the largest city in the nation, there are certain expectations that come with properly representing it. New Yorkers not only want their athletes to be champions, but they want their players to be larger than the sport they play. So they leave their respective fields and get absolutely, insanely intoxicated as they party their days away in New York City.
Being a Yankee fan is a full-time job. Anyone who is not a Yankee fan hates the Yankees. It’s gotten a little cliché to hate them, but honestly, I’m fine with it. I’ve put together my case in defense of Yankee fans and encourage any Yankee haters to tune in.
There are currently 10 “Lifers” active in the MLB. A lifer is defined as a player who has played his entire career with one team, and who has been on that team for more than 10 years. The most obvious example of a lifer is The New York Yankees's, Derek Jeter. There are nine more lifers in the MLB.
In a recent Sirius XM radio interview, Boston Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon admitted that he will sign "not only the Bronx, but anywhere, I think anywhere is a possibility," in 2011 if the Sox choose not to retain him over the long haul. While hearing this may send shivers down the spine of Red Sox Nation, don't be too quick to dismiss these words unleashed by the talented fireballer.
Earlier in the week, COED took a look at the "Top Five Future Superstar Hitters Of The MLB," and now it is time to preview the future of the sport on the mound. With Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine sipping on some tea, kicking back and counting retirement money, we'll take a look at the top five starting pitchers that are 25-years-old or younger who are sure to be the next generation of staff aces.
Ever since George Steinbrenner faded away from atop the organization, the Yankees have thrown tradition out the window. Gone is The House That Ruth Built. Gone are the common blue collar fans. And now? Gone are the rights afforded to former all-time Yankee greats....
New York Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina is calling it quits after a brilliant 18-year career. Sure, the Moose very well…
