NYY 5, Baltimore 4

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Make that another big win for the Yankees. Andy Pettitte was just good enough, and ditto for the offense. Net result is a 6-game winning streak and sole possession of second place -- back in the hunt, at least for now. Particularly encouraging is what the bottom half of the ...

NYY 9, Minnesota 5

Friday, July 5th, 2013

Wow, a 4-game sweep! The big question now is whether this was just a case of the Twins being that bad right now, or whether the Yankee offense is showing signs of coming back to life. Certainly some encouraging signs -- over the series, both the old geezers got hot, ...

NYY 7, Minnesota 3

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Wow, look Ma, it's a 2-game winning streak! Not only does Good Phil Hughes show up in back-to-back starts, but the offense rakes for a second time in as many days. When both David Adams and Alberto Gonzalez go 2-for-4, isn't that a sign of the Apocalypse? Seriously, it's hard ...

NYY 7, Cleveland 4

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Amazing what can happen when you score more than four runs! Andy Pettitte had a poor start, but the Yankee bats finally came alive and the bullpen contributed it's usual stellar, shutout performance and voila -- you put one in the W column even without a quality start. Two good ...

Time For Pitching To Carry The Team?

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Wow, the start of the season is still 3+ weeks out, yet things are really starting to look rather dismal for the Yankees in 2013.  First we had a very lackluster off-season, losing some fairly significant pieces while really not making much effort to replace any of them.  And now ...

NYY 5, Cleveland 4

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

You would think sweeeping the Indians and extending the winning streak to five straight, and 15 of the last 18 would make for a good day for the Yankees. But alas, first we loose CC for two starts, and then Andy Pettitte gets hurt and is going to be out ...

NYY 6, Cleveland 4

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Wow, that's back-to-back "easy" wins for the Yankees. They haven't had one of those in a couple of weeks, forget about two in a row. What's the difference? Looks like maybe, just maybe, the offense is starting to come alive. They've gone 5-for-11 with RISP over ...

NYY 6, Seattle 2

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Wow, back-to-back solid wins! Yet another excellent start, this one from Hiroki Kuroda, and yet another offensive outburst against one of the league's better pitchers, Felix Hernandez. Like Price the day before, Hernandez came in to the game with impeccable stats (3-1, 1.89 ERA), but the Yankee offense ...

NYY 5, Tampa Bay 3

Friday, May 11th, 2012

At last, a good solid win all around. CC was in complete control, striking out 10 and going eight innings without an earned run. The 3-4 hitters went 5-for-8 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. And five other batters chipped in for 3 more runs, all this off David ...

NYY 6, Boston 2

Friday, April 20th, 2012

CC Sabathia better be checking his rear view mirror, as Ivan Nova is in the process of passing him by and becoming the new ace of the Yankee staff. There was little doubt last year that Nova was the No. 2 starter, but there seemed to be a lot ...
