Detroit 3, NYY 2

Friday, October 7th, 2011

I said going in to the post-season that Alex Rodriguez snapping out of his month long slump would be the key to success for the Yankees -- well, he didn't, and sure enough the Yankees don't even advance to the ALCS. It's next to impossible to win with your ...

NYY 4, Tampa Bay 2

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

As much as I complain about Joe Girardi's managing decisions, particularly how he tends to use the bullpen, when it comes to managing the players he's one class act. Pinch-hitting Jorge Posada in the eighth with a chance to hit the game winner and thus clinch the division was ...

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 ...

Where Have All The Quality Starters Gone?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Kansas City 5, NYY 4. Seems like it was just yesterday that the problem the Yankees had with the starting pitching was that they had too many quality starters and were going to have to move one of them to the bullpen. My how things change quickly in the world ...

The Yankee Soap Opera — Stay Tuned!

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

NYY 7, Kansas City 4. Interesting head game Joe Girardi is playing with A.J. Burnett, who certainly is big enough a head case to begin with. Once again Burnett was pretty much throwing BP and on the verge of losing yet again, when Girardi came to his rescue and saved ...

Hip, Hip, Jorge Is Back! Right?

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

NYY 9, Tampa Bay 2. So the rumors of Jorge Posada's early retirement seem to have been somewhat exaggerated, hey? Wow, what a day for Jorge -- 3-for-5 with 6 RBIs and a grand slam which pretty much put the game out of reach for the Yankees. Obviously this ...

Should Have Saved Some Of Those 17 Runs From Friday

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Oakland 4, NYY 3. Yet another typical performance by Average A.J. -- 5.2 innings 3 BBs plus 2 HBP along with 6 hits all of which ended up as three runs. Good enough to give the Yankees a chance to win, but just not on this particular day, as the ...

Filling A-Rod’s Shoes

Monday, July 11th, 2011

With Alex Rodriguez now unavailable for the next month or so, clearly the rest of the team is going to have to take it up a notch to make up for his missing bat.  I would think most of this burden would fall on the 3-4-5 hitters, so I thought ...

CC In Command

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

NYY 8, Colorado 3. CC Sabathia is hard to beat even when he's not at the top of his game, so when he's got everything working, well.... forget about it. CC cruised through 8 complete innings, striking out nine and carrying a shutout into the eighth inning when a two-out ...

Freddy Keeps The Rotation On A Roll

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

NYY 4, Cincinnati 2. The starting rotation continues to amaze. This time it was Freddy Garcia going seven innings, and giving up just three hits and what should have been zero runs. And on a mere 89 pitches to boot, so in a rational world of bullpen management he ...
