NYY 2, Texas 1

Saturday, June 24th, 2017

Out of the clear blue, "Good" Tanaka shows up! That's as good as he's looked all year, or at least since his shutout of Boston back in late April. And remember that the Rangers were red hot coming into this game -- over the last 10 games they ...

LA Angels 10, NYY 5

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

So Severino and Betances join the long list of Yankee pitchers who are in fail mode. Team ERA over the last ten games is now 5.45. And just to add some variety, the defense also contributed to this loss with three errors. The good news is that ...

NYY 8, LA Angels 4

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Leave it to the number five starter to put an end to a very ugly losing streak. Nice to see Montgomery bounce back from his last start and deliver a near-quality start. He continues to impress. Also nice to see the Baby Bombers get back to scoring ...

LA Angels 8, NYY 3

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Ain't regression to the mean fun? Terrible pitching, weak hitting, and the losing streak is now at seven. And first place is now history. With Boston, Tampa Bay, and even Toronto starting to play much better ball, who knows where the Yankees will be once things settle ...

Oakland 4, NYY 3

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Expect a lot more games like this one as the Yankees slowly regress to a .500 team. The pitching was about as good as you can hope for with the current starters and bullpen, allowing four runs. But when the offense is a no-show, for whatever reasons, it's ...

Oakland 5, NYY 2

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Yep, I do believe that sound we are hearing is the Yankee bubble bursting. This five-game losing streak is the longest of the season for them, but more importantly the last three losses have come to the worst team in the league. There's no excusing that. Tanaka ...

Oakland 7, NYY 6

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

Deja vu all over again. Even without Hicks, Sanchez, Gregorius, and Gardner the offense managed to score seven runs. All you need is just league average pitching and you've got a win. But alas, right now the Yankee pitching is in a free fall, and so the ...

Oakland 8, NYY 7

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Is that the sound of a bubble bursting that I hear? Three straight losses to mediocre or worse teams. Sabathia out. Bird now out indefinitely. Warren, Sanchez, and Hicks all with hopefully minor injuries, but now questionable. At least the offense continues to look good. ...

LA Angels 7, NYY 5

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

So after winning two series against Eastern division rivals Boston and Baltimore, the Yankees lose a series to the .500 Trout-less Angels. So maybe the East isn't quite the tough division it's being made out to be? All of a sudden this next series against Oakland, which has ...

LA Angels 3, NYY 2

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Greg Bird can't get back in the lineup fast enough. Chris Carter's error on a routine play not only was responsible for the run that ended up making the difference, but in the bottom of the 11th with the bases loaded and one out and thus a chance to ...
