New York Yankees
Despite your monolithic love for the Cardinals, no one was rooting for the Redbirds more than I was. Not only as a Yankees fan, but as a native New Yorker imbued with an epic allergy to all things New England, I am biologically skewed against the Red Sox.
The New York Yankees are America’s team. Or are they? The Evil Empire just doesn’t feel so daunting anymore, winning just one title since the last year of the ’90s dynasty.

The Colorado Rockies are holding shortstop Troy Tulowitzki out of the lineup because of soggy weather and not soreness in his legs.
Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was held out of the Colorado Rockies’ lineup Tuesday night as a precaution after an MRI revealed minor swelling in his left groin.

Whether as a starter or a reliever, David Phelps will likely be an integral part of the Yankees.
