The New York Yankees have just landed a deal to receive Detroit Tigers outfielder Curtis Granderson earlier this morning. After winning their 27th World Championship this past November, the organization has wasted no time dealing away heading into 2010. The Yanks sent Ian Kennedy to Arizona, and Phil Coke and Austin Jackson to Detroit. The Tigers in return gave up All-Star pitcher Edwin Jackson to the Diamondbacks, and Arizona sent young pitchers Max Scherzer and Daniel Schlereth back over to Detroit. In light of the recent move, free agents Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui are wondering whether or not they’ll be suiting up in pinstripes next season.
“Granderson, of course he’s going to make them better,” said Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon. “He’s a pretty good outfielder. He plays with a lot of energy. He’s the kind of guy that fits into that landscape in New York, where he’s going to thrive within that kind of a situation.”
Veteran pitcher Andy Pettitte is set to rejoin the Yankees, agreeing to a $11.75 million one-year contract. Last season Pettitte became the first pitcher to start and win the clincher in all three playoff rounds. He’s earned five championship rings in total as a New York Yankee. Even though Pettitte will stay comfortable in New York, Yankees Andrew Marchand believes the team is “still on it” in regards to Toronto Blue Jays ace Pitcher Roy Halladay.
The classic Broadway musical Mamma Mia! is set for a string of shows at the Colonial Theatre in Boston, MA from December 15th-27th. The production is primarily playing at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York (more)
Disney’s classic Broadway version of The Lion King is reaching out to major North American cities from now until July of 2010. The casts are currently performing at the Minskoff Theatre in New York City (more)
Nick Jonas and the Administration are set to showcase a new style on February 2nd with the release of their new album “Who I Am.” The youngest Jonas Brother is breaking away from Joe and Kevin for a while to express his different songwriting interests. “I had written five or six songs that were on my heart, things that were just pouring out of me with this new and exciting sound,” said Jonas. “They weren’t necessarily right for the Jonas Brothers, but I thought they could be perfect for something else.”
Nick Jonas and the Administration will soon release singles “Who I Am” and “The Rose Garden.” Along with Jonas the band is comprised of bass guitarist John Fields, drummer Michael Bland, keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, and guitarist David Ryan Harris. To further promote the record the guys will be touring all over the U.S. starting January 2nd, 2010 at the House of Blues in Dallas TX. They are scheduled to hit up the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA on January 12th before making their way to the Fox Theatre in Detroit, MI.

Daniel Cleary notched the go-ahead goal with two minutes remaining before Kris Draper scored on empty net for the Detroit Red Wings to win over the New York Rangers 3-1 last night at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers came up with the initial goal of the contest 15:56 into the first period through Brian Boyle assisted by Christopher Higgins. Pavel Datsyuk evened the score for Detroit with the only goal in the second.
Rookie goalie Jimmy Howard made 28 saves including a stopped penalty-shot and a denied breakaway opportunity. Howard has been proving himself lately to be #1 over future hall of famer Chris Osgood. “Howie was good,” said Red Wings coach Mike Babcock. “He mentally battled and he hung in and he is going to start next game against St. Louis.” On Wednesday while the Red Wings and Blues meet up the Rangers will be set to face off against the Chicago Blackhawks.
New York Yankees’ veteran pitcher Andy Pettitte has announced his intentions to pitch in 2010. The free agent according to Buster Olney would like to pitch for the Yankees in his 16th MLB season. Pettitte went 14-8 for the Yankees in 2009 and was 4-0 in the postseason leading to their 27th World Series Championship. There is no early word on a potential contract with the Yankees but it is likely the two sides will come to some deal to bring Andy back.
Update: Pettitte has reportedly turned down the Yankees’ first offer of $10 million.
The 2010 Yankees schedule is available and Yankees tickets are available for many games now.
Legendary guitarists Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck have decided to play a set of shows together starting February 20th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. They will then perform at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on the 22nd, before playing the Bell Centre in Montreal the following day. Although it’s been rumored for a larger U.S. tour, the pair has yet to confirm more dates. The American shows were added on to their list of February shows at the O2 London Arena.
Beck and Clapton were both apart of the 1960′s English band “The Yarbirds.” They were never in the group at the same time despite being friends for the past 40+ years. Beck’s recent “Live at Ronnie Scotts DVD” reached Platinum status in the U.S., Canada, and Japan. Clapton’s “Crossroads Guitar Festival” DVD sold over 2 million copies across the country. The two rockers have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a combined total of five times (Beck 2/Clapton 3). Don’t miss this once and a lifetime opportunity to see two of the best guitarists of all time together live on stage!
