Boston 5, NYY 1

Monday, August 21st, 2017

Hard to complain about just losing two of three in this series. Every time you think the Yankees are finally getting back to their early season form, something goes wrong. Now it's the bullpen, that looked so good for so long. Other than Robertson and Betances, there's ...

NYY 7, NY Mets 5

Friday, August 18th, 2017

A series sweep! Just what the doctor ordered. Nice bounce-back win for Severino after that disastrous start in Boston last week. You kinda figured that bad start was a fluke, but nice to see it confirmed. Severino still remains the ace of the staff. Also ...

NYY 5, NY Mets 3

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Another nice win, although once again it's against a starter with a 6+ ERA so hard to get too excited. Was nice to see Aaron Judge have a two-hit game, first time he's done that in the last 25 games. Also nice to see David Robertson get a ...

NYY 5, NY Mets 4

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Now that was a pretty impressive win. Jacob deGrom is arguably one of the best pitchers in the game today, and yet the Yankees got to him for five runs on nine hits. And for the second game in a row it was Hicks, Sanchez, and Judge getting ...

NYY 4, NY Mets 2

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

Shades of the Baby Bombers of earlier this year! Solo home runs by Hicks, Judge, and Sanchez -- three of the batters that really need to get hot here in the last six weeks of the season. But me, I'm not getting too excited quite yet. Four ...

Boston 3, NYY 2

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Sheez, how much longer is Girardi going to stick with Chapman as the closer???? He's arguably the THIRD best closer on the team, with both Betances and Robertson being far better. Heck, for that matter, why not just dump the whole idea of closer, eighth-inning man, etc. and ...

Boston 10, NYY 5

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Well, so much for Friday's win getting the Yankees back on the right path. All set up to win the first two games of this critical series with their ace on the mound, Severino comes out and stinks it up with his worst start of the season. Now ...

NYY 5, Boston 4

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

So will this be the spark that finally lights a fire under the Yankees and gets them out of their two-month long slump? After going 16 straight innings without scoring, the Yankees put a 5-spot on the board in the eighth and then held on to notch what could ...
