NYY 6, Baltimore 2

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Well, it wasn't exactly pretty -- the Yankees gave up more hits than they did in any of the Tampa Bay games -- but what the hey, a win is a win! And on closer inspection, it was actually a very nice start for Ivan Nova. True, he ...

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 ...

Still A Series Win

Monday, July 4th, 2011

New York Mets 3, NYY 2. Did I mention that I can't wait until Derek Jeter is back in this lineup? First it was Eduardo Nunez not being able to make the simplest of plays, and now it's Ramiro Pena making Nunez look good. And this time it cost ...

A Good June For Good AJ

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

NYY 5, Milwaukee 2. We're three months in to the season, and so far Bad A.J. Burnett has been pretty much a no show. Yesterday he was rock solid, going seven innings and giving up just two runs. And more importantly, only walking two and hitting nary a batter. ...

Offense Quickly Back To MIA

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

New York Mets 2, NYY 1. And so the resurgence of the Yankee offense lasted all of 24 hours. Going up against a pitcher with a 5.08 ERA and .303 BAA, it looked to be a great opportunity to put a bunch of runs on the board for ...

Offense Wakes Up In The Nick Of Time

Monday, May 9th, 2011

NYY 12, Texas 5. The bats finally came alive, scoring more than five runs for the first time in the last ten games, and thus the Yankees avoided what would have been a disastrous road trip. As it is, they finished the trip 3-4 against two struggling teams, ...

Offense, Good A.J. Sparkle

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

NYY 7, Baltimore 4. The Yankee offense woke up from the slumber it had been in since the opening series of the season, putting six runs on the board in the first two innings. The Yankees entered tonight's game with five -- yes, count 'em, five -- of ...

The Derek Jeter Soap Opera

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I'm always amused during the off-season with all the various contract negotiations that seem to dominate so much of the hot stove discussions. First off, you have the what-should-be-oh-so-obvious fact that both sides in these negotiations are playing the media and the fans big time. What is actually ...

Yay Wild Card!

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

NYY 6, Toronto 1. CC Sabathia quickly returned to being the dominating pitcher we all know and love, the Yankees managed to play some great small ball for once, and the net result is that at long last a playoffs spot is now clinched. It's been a rough ...

Meh

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Tampa Bay 7, NYY 2.. This one was ugly. A two hour rain delay in the third turned what was possibly shaping up as a pitchers duel in to a bullpen duel, and apparently Joe Girardi wanted nothing to do with that, as he ran out the second ...
