Minnesota 5, NYY 4

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Of all the weaknesses of this Yankee team, the one that's probably going to end up being their downfall is Joe Girardi's incompetence in managing the bullpen. Phil Hughes is pitching great, 6.2 innings and just one run. Yeah, the bases are loaded but one runner got on ...

NYY 4, Detroit 3

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

We finally found out what it takes to get David Phelps in to a game in a high leverage situation -- it takes Joe Girardi getting booted from the game, and Tony Pena making the bullpen calls! It's a one-run lead in the eighth, not only is it the ...

NYY 6, NY Mets 5

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Yet another Yankee text book win -- overall weak offense, but with enough home runs to make the difference. Although given this was the red-hot R.A. Dickey that they were up against, maybe we do have to give credit where credit is due. Five runs on five hits ...

The Offense To The Rescue

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

NYY 22, Oakland 9. Oakland came in to this series 13 games below .500 while the Yankees were 29 games above .500. That works out to the A's being 21 games behind the Yankees. And yet half-way through this game, the Yankees were down 7-2 and well on their ...

First!

NYY 3, Boston 2. You knows things are going right when 38-year old Bartolo Colon, making his first August start since 2005, out duels Yankee killer Jon Lester. Of course Colon got a lot of help from the bullpen, which is shaping up to be the best in the AL ...

Der-ek Je-ter!!! Der-ek Je-ter!!!

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

NYY 5, Tampa Bay 4. Man was it a bad day for the Jeter haters. Not only does Jete get his 3000th career hit, he does it with a home run, plus he then proceeds to go 5-for-5 for the day, and as if that wasn't enough, his last hit ...

Nova Shuts ‘Em Down Again

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

NYY 5, Cincinnati 3. Ivan Nova is quietly becoming the biggest story of the Yankee pitching rotation this year. He dominated the Reds easily, going eight innings and giving up just one run on four hits. And what was really impressive was seven K's without a single walk, and ...

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 ...

And Winning Pretty

Monday, August 30th, 2010

NYY 2, Chicago 1. So maybe Ivan Nova is for real? As good as he looked in his first start last week, he looked even better yesterday as he shut down the White Sox for 5.2 innings, giving up just one run on five hits while striking out ...

Swisher To The Pen, Please!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Cleveland 13, NYY 11. How in the world can you lose a game to what is arguably the worst team in the league when you take a six run lead in to the sixth inning? Well, the answer is that it's quite easy when you have the bullpen ...
