The New York Yankees extended their season last night by defeating the Texas Rangers 7-2. Once again C.C. Sabathia stopped another Yankee losing streak by going six innings and giving up only two runs. The Yankees now trail the Rangers three games to two in the seven game American League Championship Series

Quick Hits & Links: LeBron, Yankees, A-Rod, Amar’e

Everyone is talking about the effective of Amar’e Stoudemire in New York without two-time MVP point guard Steve Nash feeding him the ball. How will Nash do this season without a powerful finisher under the basket to feed?

LeBron James was not obligated to thank the fans in Cleveland. James gave the Cavaliers more than they gave him. Thanking his home town of Akron was all that was necessary.

Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire should all be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The hall is filled with bigots, ball players that never played against black baseball players, drug abusers, wife beaters and alcoholics. Why not add some cheaters to the mix? And if baseball writers and the hall are so against these steroid users, why is all their record-breaking memorabilia in the Hall of Fame?

Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James and the rest of the Miami Heat will win the 2010-11 NBA championship. “They will never lose two games in a row this year, other 29 teams better hope the lockout gets moved up a year.” – Jeff Van Gundy on Heat.

As a die-hard Yankee fan, the Tampa Bay Rays scare me (A LOT!).

The Detroit Pistons signed center Ben Wallace to a two-year contract when his knees retired two years ago.

And last but not least…

Washington Nationals rookie pitcher Stephen Strasburg has taken the major leagues by storm. His high strikeout numbers and early success has started up a discussion on whether or not he should be an All-Star this season. Strasburg has attracted sell out crowds whenever he has pitched in Washington and also on the road at Cleveland and Atlanta. Strasburg is without question the biggest attraction in baseball, and is using his 100 mph fastball to replace steroid headlines with phenomenal box scores. In my book, all of those ingredients should lead to an All-Star invitation.
