Texas 8, NYY 5

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Why in the hell is Joba Chamberlain still in a Yankee uniform these days? And more importantly, why in hell is he being used in key situations? Since coming off the DL a month ago, he has been hit hard in pretty much every one of his nine appearances, giving ...

NYY 4, Cleveland 3

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

The offense went back into hibernation, but at least Teixeira remains hot -- so that's a good sign. David Phelps got the pitching back on track with a strong 1-hit, 6-inning shutout -- had it not been for the four walks, this would have been a superb start for him. ...

NYY 10, Toronto 7

Friday, September 21st, 2012

The offense finally puts a bunch of runs on the board, and the pitching craters. Go figure. At least it ended in the W column. This was another good reminder that Phil Hughes' biggest problem right now is consistency and leaving too many pitches out over the ...

NYY 13, Baltimore 3

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Look, it's yet another one game winning streak! The Yankees have had -- count 'em -- nine of those in the last three plus weeks. But as the saying goes, baby steps -- can they actually win back-to-back games for the first time since Aug. 15? At ...

White Sox 9, NYY 6

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Once again Joe Girardi's mix-and-match bullpen philosophy was a total failure, as it took three pitchers all of four batters to turn a 3-2 lead in to a 3-5 deficit. If he had just brought in one reliever and turned the inning over to him, though, I'm not sure ...

Texas 10, NYY 6

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

What a weird game. First off, Girardi starts one of the worst house money lineups I've ever seen, with his second worst hitter batting cleanup and his worst hitter as the DH. But inspite of that, the Yankees still are leading after six and have a shot at the sweep ...

NYY 12, Baltimore 3

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Hopefully that slayed the ugly monster. Good to see the 2-5 hitters finally break out, going 7-for-15 with 7 RBIs. And Phil Hughes somehow managed to notch a quality start in spite of giving up 9 hits and walking 2 over the course of 6 innings. The ...

Bronx Bombers Do Their Thing

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

NYY 7, New York Mets 3. If you can't hit for average and can't hit with RISP, I guess you can make up for that by hitting a lot of home runs -- and that's one thing the Yankee offense is good at this year. Of seven hits ...

Another Textbook Win

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

NYY 4, Minnesota 3. The textbook for the Yankees this year has two formulas for wins. One is to get something close to a quality start, at least have the lead by the sixth, and then turn it over to the back-end bullpen trio of Joba-Rafael-Mo. And ...

Taking Care Of Business

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

NYY 12, Kansas City 6. All things considered, you have to like Phil Hughes' performance in this one. Outside of Scott Podsednik, who is on a tear right now and could probably hit .500 against Cy Young, Hughes held the Royals to one run on four hits over ...
