NYY 11, Cleveland 6

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Look, it's the first winning streak of 2013! Seriously, all things considered, another very good outing for the pinstripes. Kuroda looked awful there in the first inning, but then settled down to shut out the Indians for the next 4.1 innings. But that's just the way Kuroda ...

Detroit 6, NYY 4

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

This one has to rank right up there with the biggest disasters in Yankee post-season history. Bases loaded three times and not able to score a single run. Cano 0-for-6 leaving 6 runners on base, now 2-for-28 (.071) in the post-season. As if going 3-for-23 (.130) at the ...

NYY 4, Boston 1

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Can there be any doubt as to who the number one starter is now? Hiroki Kuroda was once again lights out -- other than Adrian Gonzalez' solo home run, he allowed only three singles and only one runner to get to second base. Even with the Yankee offense ...

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 ...

CC Is THE MAN

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

NYY 4, Toronto 1. Where would this team be without CC Sabathia? Desperately in need of a win, CC once again delivered as he has time and time again. The Yankees are now 18 games over .500, and CC alone accounts for 10 of those. The rest of 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 ...

Beating Up On Pawtucket

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

NYY 6, Boston 5. I'm sure a lot of people will try to put a positive spin on Andy Pettitte's performance, but the reality is that what we are getting is pretty much what you would expect from a 38-year old pitcher coming back from two months on the ...

Audition Fail

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Toronto 8, NYY 4. Javier Vasquez had his last audition for the post-season roster, and hopefully last night's performance pretty much removed him from any further consideration. He's been just horrendous of late, with an 8.84 ERA and .320 BAA for September. And even going back the ...

It’s A Win Streak!

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

NYY 11, Baltimore 3. So that's what it's like to win a laugher. I'd almost forgotten. For the first time in two weeks, the Yankees actually won a game by more than one run. And after losing three series in a row, they have finally won ...

Back In The Saddle?

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

NYY 8, Tampa Bay 7. At last, some signs of life and an end to the longest losing streak of the season. Although there was still plenty of ugly here, for once there were some positives as well. On the ugly side, once again the Yankees ...
