EXCLUSIVE

The Yankees are screwed. So are the Astros ... because whatever team wins the ALCS is a lamb to slaughter for the L.A. Dodgers -- so says Steve Garvey

There is one catch ... Garvey says the Blue Crew needs to clinch tonight and lock up the pennant over the Cubs -- and if/when that happens, the momentum will carry L.A. right to a championship. 

Garvey knows what it takes to get the job done -- he won the World Series with the Dodgers back in 1981 and was a 2-time NLCS MVP. 

Plus, he's still hella charming!!  

Former Dodger Steve Sax Sues Bobblehead Company Where's My Autograph Money?!!

10/18/2017 6:55 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former L.A. Dodgers and N.Y. Yankees second baseman Steve Sax has a bone to pick with the company that made his bobbleheads -- he says it screwed him out of some cash for his John Hancock.

Sax claims he made a deal with sports gear company Forever Collectibles for $10,000 -- allowing them to produce a bunch of bobbleheads in his likeness and sell them at an event in June ... and he'd sign about 504 of the 'heads.

According to the legal docs that all worked out fine, but Sax says FC also agreed to pay him another $5,000 to be at the event and sign extra autographs and inscriptions ... which he claims he did.

The problem, according to the suit, is the company never coughed up the additional dough. Now he's going after them for the $5k ... plus interest.

We reached out to Forever Collectibles ... no word back so far.

MLB Commish Rob Manfred Sox Guilty Of Stealing Signs ... Fined Undisclosed Amount

9/15/2017 2:17 PM PDT
Breaking News

MLB commish Rob Manfred just dropped the hammer on the Red Sox ... fining the club an "undisclosed amount" of money for stealing signs using banned electronic devices.

Baseball investigators determined the BoSox violated MLB rules by "sending electronic communications from their video replay room to an athletic trainer in the dugout."

While Manfred did not specify the amount of the fine ... he did say the cash would go towards Hurricane Irma relief in Florida.

The Sox weren't the only ones lighter in the wallet ... the commish says he determined the Yankees broke a rule prior to the '17 season, so he fined them also.

The amount ... "lesser undisclosed amount" -- also going to storm relief.

We spoke with Manfred last week in D.C. while he was still conducting the investigation ... and he told us the scandal was just a "reflection of competitive activity between two clubs."

EXCLUSIVE

Everybody relax ... MLB commish Rob Manfred says allegations the Red Sox stole signals from the Yankees with an Apple Watch just proves how competitive they are!!!

No, really ... that's what he told us!

We saw the Commish in D.C. this week and asked him about the biggest scandal in baseball -- claims a Red Sox trainer used an Apple Watch to relay Yankees signals to Boston players to give their hitters an advantage. 

"Look, I think it's a reflection of competitive activity between two clubs," Manfred told TMZ Sports ... "I'm sure we'll investigate and reach a resolution that preserves the integrity of the game."

When asked if the Red Sox would forfeit the wins from the games in question, Manfred said, "I'm not gonna talk about potential discipline at this point. We haven't even completed the investigation."

The baseball boss did weigh in on another HUGE impact tech could have on the game -- and he definitely ain't about it ... at least not yet.

Pandemonium ensued ... the benches cleared -- and the Yanks relievers came SPRINTING from the bullpen to join the melee.

Reggie Jackson I Love Aaron Judge ... But Half A Season Doesn't Make Him Great

7/25/2017 4:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Judge is killin' it, but don't go retiring his number just yet ... so says Yankees legend Reggie Jackson, who told us the rookie phenom still has a lot more to prove.

Mr. October was RAVING about Judge when we ran into him at LAX --  saying he's showing serious signs that he could be one of the best to ever do it -- but notes, "One half season doesn't make a great player."

It's been a helluva 1/2 season -- already racking up 32 HRs (tied for the MLB lead).

But Reggie warns it doesn't get easier -- Judge is gonna have to make some key adjustments if he wants to be one of the greats.

BONUS -- Reggie also talks sex at the end of the clip ... by accident.

Still funny, though.
