NYY 3, Minnesota 2

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

The offense regressed quickly back to their 2013 norm, with the obvious exception of Robinson Cano who remains red hot. But thankfully CC Sabathia looked a bit more like the old CC, turning in a high quality start after his last two rather mediocre starts. And Cano + CC was ...

NYY 6, LA Angels 5

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Wow, the offense scores more than league average runs for the first time in ten games, CC pitches like an Ace for the first time in his last three starts, and then the bullpen almost blows it! If it ain't one thing going wrong, it's another -- and that's the ...

Oakland 6, NYY 4

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

It's pretty obvious at this point that CC Sabathia is no longer the "ace" of the Yankee rotation. Both in terms of ERA and FIP, he's now fourth among the starters, only bettering the unpredictable Phil Hughes. If CC continues to struggle, it just puts all the more pressure on ...

NYY 6, Cleveland 4

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

This one was a rare, true "team effort" win. The offense contributed more than enough runs to win, and CC did his job, basically limiting the Indians to fewer runs than what the Yankees put up. Actually CC pitched a lot better than his 4-run complete game box score would ...

NYY 4, Boston 1

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

Wow, what an offensive outburst that was! After averaging under two runs per game against the Mets, one of the weakest pitching teams in baseball, the mighty Yankee offense scored all of four runs! Not only that, after managing to get not a single walk in the last four games, ...

Tampa Bay 8, NYY 3

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Well, that was a bit on the ugly side. Yet another reminder that this team has no offense at all, and is only as good as the pitching is. And today, the pitching was as non-existent as the offense. At what point do we start worrying about CC Sabathia? He ...

Oakland 2, NYY 0

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

How many times do you see a game that is effectively over after the first pitch? That's got to be some kind of record. The good news is that CC looked very good, getting a true quality start but somehow throwing 118 pitches in just six innings, very un-CC-like. And ...

Tampa Bay 5, NYY 1

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

What's the deal with CC in the first inning? He now has a 10.80 ERA in the first inning, compared to 2.10 for innings 2+. Last year he had the same type problem, although not as pronounced (5.14 first inning ERA vs. 3.09 in the other innings). Hopefully that's a ...

NYY 4, Arizona 3

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Ok, it's still very early in the season, but I'm calling this one a big win. This was slowly evolving as what was supposed to be a typical game for the Yankees this year. CC delivering a quality start, but the offense completely missing in action and on the verge ...

NYY 7, Detroit 0

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

Six games in to the season, the Yankees finally put it all together for a very good win. CC was dominating, even without his usual command and control -- hard to beat seven innings of 4-hit shutout ball, particularly when you hold the likes of Cabrera-Fielder-Martinez to 0-for-9. ...
