My first homemade meme

Depending on your Internet tendencies, you may or may not have heard of a "meme" (pronounced meem). These memes are typically generated by slapping some humorous text to match a humorous image. Kinda.

It's easier to just show you rather than trying to explain. So, I present the first meme I created by using one of the many meme generators available online.

I guess you could replace Miguel Cabrera with anybody in the majors at this point, but I think it's worth stressing that the Yankees are really going to start regretting the decision to take on the most expensive player contract in all of sports.

In 2010, Alex Rodriguez completed a stretch of 13 consecutive seasons with at least 30 homers and 100 RBIs. In his last two years combined, he barely reached those two plateaus (34 HR, 119 RBI).

Staying on the field has been a problem for A-Rod during this two-year slide. Prior to 2011, his outstanding durability was one of his trademarks, and that certainly helped him secure his lucrative 10-year deal.

Is it time for a position-switch for A-Rod? Should the Yankees make him a primary DH next year and use him at third sparingly?

To sum up tonight's win...

Who do the Yankees want to face in the playoffs?

After the 160th game of the regular season, we now know the four five American League teams headed for the playoffs. But we have no idea who's playing whom. Yet.

If searching for exciting sports betting information (sponsored), the playoffs are on the horizon and predicting the outcomes could be fun. But first, the matchups need to get settled in these last two games. Here are the competitors:


If the playoffs ended today (before tonight's action), the A's and O's would play in the wild card game and the Yankees would play the winner. That would leave the Rangers and Tigers for the other ALDS matchup.

Judging by the season's head-to-head matchups, the Yankees would prefer to face the Tigers. But there's a little more to it, I think.
