NYY 14, Cleveland 1

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

Just a week ago the general consensus was that the Yankees, having lost so much home run power in the off-season and then even more due to injuries in the spring, would be relying on small ball and good pitching to get by this year. And yet here we are, ...

NYY 10, Boston 2

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Could the Yankees be getting hot at just the right time? All of a sudden the offense is looking strong, averaging better than six runs per game and batting .298 over the last ten games. Swisher is heating up, Cano is on fire, Ichiro continues to amaze, and ...

NYY 6, Boston 4

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

The Yankee offense has quietly heated up over the last couple of weeks. Jeter, Ichiro, and Swisher are all hitting better than .300 over the last 10 games, and Eric Chavez is absolutely on fire with a .563 BA over that period. Even poor old Andruw Jones has ...

NYY 6, Toronto 3

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Phil Hughes got the starting rotation back on track with the first quality start since the All-Star break and the offense came from two of the most unlikely sources, Russell Martin with a solo home run in the second, and then Raul Ibanez with the game-winning grand slam in the ...

NYY 7, Texas 4

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Yeah, I know, it's still way early in the season, but I'm still calling this one a big win. The defending AL Champion Rangers are off to a very hot start, and many of the pundits are starting to call them the "greatest team ever". So just from ...

NYY 15, Boston 9

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

What was that I was saying about the offense starting to wake up? Wow, yet another double-digit hit parade, and this time double-digit runs as well. Over the last 10 games we've got 5, count 'em FIVE, players with OPS over .990, and an incredible team OPS of ...

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 ...

Nova Comes Back To Earth

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

NYY 9, Kansas City 7. Meh. Ivan Nova had an off night -- it happens. After going 7-0 with a 3.10 ERA and .232 BAA in his last eight starts, he finally had a stinker -- 7 runs and 9 hits in just 5.1 innings. So he's not ...

Return Of The Bronx Bombers

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

NYY 6, Los Angeles 5. All of a sudden the Yankees are back to being the Bronx Bombers, winning with long blasts the way they were earlier in the year. Yesterday six of the nine runs came on homers, and today all six run came via homers -- Curtis Granderson ...

Meet Ivan Nova, The Stopper

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

NYY 9, Los Angeles 3. I understand that it's all about team politics when Joe Girardi discusses the current pitching rotation and who ultimately is the odd man out, but right now any plan that doesn't have Ivan Nova starting every fifth day is plain nuts. In fact, if the ...
