Pittsburgh 2, NYY 1

Monday, April 24th, 2017

Where was this version of Ivan Nova when he was in a Yankee uniform? Sheez, when he was traded to Pittsburgh he was pitching to a 4.90 ERA. Since then it's been 2.75. As they say, good pitching beats good hitting, and this game was just more ...

NYY 9, White Sox 1

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Nice bounce back by the offense after being shut down the previous night by Miguel Gonzalez. This early in the season you are understandably nervous that the strong offensive showing is just a fluke, and that it will eventually return to what we saw much of last year. ...

White Sox 4, NYY 1

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

And so the eight game win streak comes to an end. Not much you can do when you got someone pitching like Miguel Gonzalez was. It was pretty obvious from the first couple of innings that runs were going to be scarce. The good news is that ...

NYY 7, White Sox 4

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Well, there was certainly no regressing to the mean in this one. Yet another solid start from Jordan Montgomery, and once again the offense looked solid. Only downside to this one was Warren not being able to close it out and give Chapman yet another day of rest. ...

NYY 9, St. Louis 3

Monday, April 17th, 2017

OK, we're starting to enter bizarro world. We all kinda figured the Yankees weren't really as bad as they looked in that first week, but now that they've won seven in a row, certainly no one believes that they are this good. I'm guessing we'll see some significant ...

NYY 3, St. Louis 2

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

It's starting to look like a long year for all the CC-haters out there. Sabathia turned in his third straight good start Saturday, and each start has been better than the previous one. The offense could only put up three runs against the Cardinals' Carlos Martinez in a ...

NYY 4, St. Louis 3

Saturday, April 15th, 2017

Everything is starting to click now. Tanaka looks to be getting back in form after a rocky start, going 6.1 innings and giving up only 3 runs (a "quality" start). The bullpen is starting to look like everything it was advertised to be, with Tyler Clippard bailing Tanaka ...

NYY 3, Tampa Bay 2

Friday, April 14th, 2017

A series sweep, a 4-game winning streak, and over .500 for the first time this season. Now we're cooking. Luis Severino recorded his first W since 2015 (yeah, unbelievable), and looked great doing it -- a 7-inning quality start with 11 Ks and just one walk. And ...
