Tampa Bay 5, NYY 3

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

You got to feel bad for Bartolo Colon, as it's pretty clear by now he's not even going to make the post-season roster. And yet, he's been one huge part of the reason why the Yankees are playing in the post-season. For the first four months of the ...

Tampa Bay 15, NYY 8

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Whatever happened to that "luxury" we had of six starting pitchers from which the four best would be used in the postseason? It's now pretty obvious that Bartolo Colon, as great as he has been for most of the year, is just out of gas (and quite understandably). ...

To Bunt Or Not Too Bunt?

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Oakland 6, NYY 5. The offense seems to be starting to cool off some, at least over the last three games they have. They did come alive a bit in the last two innings of this game, but it was too little too late. With the starting rotation still ...

At Least Bartolo Looked Good

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Tampa Bay 3, NYY 2. One of the nice things about the sport of baseball is that very rarely do you see a game won or lost on flukey plays. As a rule, what with 9 innings, 27 outs, and 100+ pitches per team usually all the fluke plays and ...

Not The Way To Start The Second Half

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Toronto 16, NYY 7. Pretty ugly way to start off the second half of the season, coughing up 16 runs on 20 hits and 3 errors. It would be easy enough to lay this one off on a bad start by Bartolo Colon, but to their credit the Yankees battled ...

A Night In Bizarro World

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Tampa Bay 5, NYY 1. With Jeff Niemann (3-4, 5.05 ERA) going against Bartolo Colon (6-3, 2.88 ERA), a 5-1 final score is pretty much what you would expect. Only Thursday night it was Bizarro World at NYS, as it was Colon who got knocked all over the park (10 ...

Get Well Quick, Bartolo!

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

NYY 4, Cleveland 0. Bartolo Colon has been absolutely awesome so far this year. Yesterday it was 6.2 innings of shutout pitching, giving up just two hits while striking out six and walking one. As a starter, his ERA is 2.96 and the Yankees are 7-3. If he ...

Just Throw Strikes

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Toronto 7, NYY 3. You pretty much had a feeling this wasn't going to be the Yankees night after the first inning. Jose Bautista took Bartolo Colon yard, which isn't all that big of a deal as Bautista is no doubt the best hitter in the league these ...

At Least The Pitching Is Back

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

NYY 4, Baltimore 1. Talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat! With a 1-0 win all but certain going in to the bottom of the ninth, Joe Girardi once again went brain dead and pulled Bartolo Colon, and for that one act of incredible stupidity the ...

Starting Pitching Continues To Rock

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

NYY 5, Detroit 3. Bartolo Colon pitched another gem and the Yankee offense provided just enough runs to get this road trip off to a nice start. Colon continues to impress, going seven complete innings and giving up just three runs, and notably not walking a single batter ...
