Jorge Posada : Future With The Yankees ? »

If you are a catcher prospect, please contact the New York Yankees today. Immediate position available. Looking for a regular catcher starting 2012. Maybe before. This is an employment ad you will not find in The New York Times. The word is traveling around all Yankee Stadium. Jorge Posada is not happy about being bumped for Game Two of the World [...]

Phil Hughes Struggles: Should Joe Girardi Rethink »

Phil Hughes hasn't been his dominant self this postseason, as has been very well documented. So far, his line reads: 4.2 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 6 K. That works out to a .557 BABIP, but it's not like he's been giving up weakly hit balls. Thirty-five percent of the batted balls against him have been line drives. Usually, I wouldn't be worried over a [...]

Is It Time For Joe Girardi To Bench Nick Swisher? »

On November 13, 2008, Brian Cashman made one of his rare very shrewd moves. He acquired 1B/OF Nick Swisher from the Chicago White Sox for two minor leaguers and utility man Wilson Betemit. Swisher, a classic “Moneyball” type player (low average, high OBP, bad fielder), was coming off a down year with the White Sox in 2008. He hit [...]

Team 107: The 1996 Tigers »

World Series, Game 1: Yanks Pick Wrong Time For Bad »

In the minutes preceding the Yankees' miraculous, positively 2001-esque, one-run rally in the ninth inning last night against the Phillies, my friends and I attempted to glean any positive developments from a disheartening evening. The conversation went something like this: Dan: Um, CC battled through without his best stuff. Howie: Yeah, [...]

Phillies-Yankees: Cliff Lee, Chase Utley Help Phillies »

There’s an old saying in baseball that has held true from 1909 to 2009–good pitching always beats good hitting.   That saying held true again last night in Game One of the 2009 World Series. On a rainy, misty night in the Bronx, Cliff Lee dominated a powerful New York Yankee lineup and Chase Utley hit two homeruns as the [...]

Just Saying, Is All… | The Untold Story of the »

Old glory never dies—it just repeats itself into oblivion. The World Series isn’t what it was. It’s also, thankfully, still what it is. As America limps its way out of the Great Recession, there’s reason to doubt whether We the People will ever regain our position of global preeminence—which would be worse news if we [...]

This Is Why People Hate the Yankees »

For many years I wondered why so many people seem to have such a disgust for the Yankees. You either like them or you don't. "They buy their players," people say, or, "They spend the most." Show-offs. Greedy. I never believed it—until now. I, myself, have been a Yankee fan since 1987. I watched them play through terrible seasons, paying [...]

It’s a Sad Day When Seats Are Empty for a World »

When I think back to the old Yankee Stadium, the first thought that comes into my mind is an animal house. The crowd was extremely loud, extremely rowdy, and the hostile environment they created made playing there unbelievably difficult for visiting teams. At the new Yankee Stadium, however, those boisterous fans seem to still exist; only now you [...]
