John Sterling blows Alex Rodriguez call

Yahoo Sports Minute

New York Yankees announcer John Sterling has called every game for the franchise since 1989. Known for his home run call ("It is high. It is far. It is gone.") and exclamation when the Pinstripes are victorious ("Theeeeeeeeee Yankees win!"), the veteran broadcaster is noted for his hyperbole. But his botched call during what ended up being a routine fly out by Alex Rodriguez during Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays was embarrassing.

Here's how Sterling described it:

Toronto shut out New York 2-0.

Moving to football news, the Seattle Seahawks are 19.5 point favorites over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Sunday's home tilt at Century Link Field. The nearly three-touchdown point spread makes the NFC West squad the largest favorite in an NFL game since the New England Patriots were 20.5 favorites over the Peyton Manning-less Indianapolis Colts in 2011. The Pats squeaked out a 31-24 victory.
