World Series Weirdness

Monday, October 30th, 2017

What a wacky World Series this has evolved into. Game 1 started with a great pitchers' duel between Kershaw and Keuchel, and it looked like we were going to be treated to a great match up of LA's top-rated pitching versus the Astro's power hitting. But then the ...

Girardi Released. Really????

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Wow, so Girardi is gone. When things like this happen, I suspect that the story line that we get in the media isn't anywhere close to being all the facts. But at face value, you really have to scratch your head over this one. Sheez, this year ...

Memories Of Last Year

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

What a difference a year can make, no? At this point last year, the Yankees were averaging scoring 3.8 R/G while the pitching was giving up 4.4 R/G. Clearly that's going to lead to lots of lost games -- and sure enough at this point last year the ...

A-Rod Retires

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

So the Alex Rodriguez situation is finally resolved, with Alex retiring as a player, but staying on in some type of advisor and instructor role. Sounds like as good an ending as anyone could have hoped for. Me, I've always thought Alex was extremely misunderstood. He comes ...

Fish or cut bait?

Monday, July 11th, 2016

Here we are at the All-Star Break, with only a couple of weeks left until the trade deadline. And so it's time for the Yankees to make the big decision -- buy or sell? Surely, surely they understand this is a no-brainer, and they realize that this latest ...

Why Am I Not Surprised

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

The Yankees are now officially in last place in team batting in all four major categories -- BA .231, OBP .299, SLG .371 and OPS .670. And as I've mentioned before, how could anyone NOT have seen this coming at the start of the season? Of the nine ...

The Big Papi Meltdown

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

As a long-time Yankee fan, I do love seeing things go bad for Big Papi Ortiz -- and his strike out in the top of the ninth last night was certainly a classic. The 3-1 pitch that was called a strike was, in fact, very much in the strike ...

Time To Play Ball!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Interesting off-season for the Yankees. For the most part, Cashman and company decided to stand pat with the 2015 lineup for this year. To be fair, the Yankees did make the playoffs last year, and did lead the division for most of the season. It was only ...

How To Fix The Offense for 2016

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

So now our thoughts turn to next season, and what the Yankees need to do to improve on this year's team. Ideally you would like to put together a team that could play as well as this team did April-July, but for the entire season. Which means basically ...

Houston 3, NYY 0

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

So much for the theory that you can't predict a team's post-season performance based on how they played over the last month of the season. Let's see, what all about this game could we have easily predicted: Tanaka pitches great, but gives up two solo home runs. Check. Betances comes ...
