Who had a late September matchup between the Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees as a potential playoff preview and/or spoiler alert situation? I know I didn't.

This Day In Yankees History 9/21/12

In 2008 Babe Ruth's daughter throws out the first pitch, the Yankees beat the Orioles 7-3, and the Yankees bid farewell to the 85 year old Yankees Stadium in front of more then 56,000 fans.

Yankees Magic Number

The Yankees magic number to win the AL East!!

MLB Nears Deal With Fox & TBS

MLB has announced that they are nearing a mega deal with both FOX and TBS for eight more years of broadcasting for the chump change total of $800 million. Fox keeps the World Series, as usual, and these two will split the post season so really it is a fancy way of saying nothing much will change for the fans. The teams though will see their part of the revenue pretty much double from $23 million and change to somewhere around $50 million. Now teams ownership like the Pirates, Rays, Royals, Padres, and Athletics can pocket even MORE free money, hooray revenue sharing!
