Only On YES

This date in Yankees history:

September 8th, 2008: The Yankees give up six runs in the sixth inning of a 12-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim ... in that same sixth inning, Pudge Rodriguez was ejected along with Torii Hunter after a brawl.

But more importantly than that, during the sixth inning, the Yankees Entertainment and Sports Network went to a commercial ... and that commercial featured New York Mets stars Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran pitching Puerto Rico Tourism. This commercial would air at least one more time during this particular Yankees loss. This is significant due to the multitude of Derek Jeter commercials shown on SNY, the Mets television network.

If you would like to read about some more great Yankees memories, go out and buy "This BAD Day in Yankees History" by Gabriel Schechter.

I know this is off topic But does anyone know why Eddie Kunz is on the inactive list?

I love the Carlos' but they act more like Adam Graves on the old Bay Ridge Honda/Volvo comercials than Jeter.

I'm surprised Venezuala hasn't started their own tourism ads, like having Johan Santana schill for the country and then get kidnapped.
