Alex Rodriguez’s Early Playoff Performances »

With the soul of David Ortiz circa 2004 apparently having been transferred to Alex Rodriguez, at least for the 2009 playoffs, it's a good time to look back at the days before people thought he couldn't perform in the postseason. During his time with the Seattle Mariners, there was no sense of Alex Rodriguez choking in the clutch: he scored a run [...]

Alex Rodriguez Must Adjust His Hitting Approach »

An in-game analysis of Alex Rodriguez hitting approach: In the second inning of tonight's game, Alex was hit in the upper back by a pitch from Joe Blanton. It was the third time in the last five at-bats Rodriguez was hit by a pitch. After a conference between the umpires, they decided stupidly to warn both benches about retaliation. Alex [...]

Yankees’ Damaso Marte Becoming the New Graeme »

In the 8th inning of last night's New York Yankee victory, manager Joe Girardi summoned left handed reliever Damaso Marte to begin the frame. At the time, the Yankees led 8-4, so the game was still within reach of Philadelphia, especially with the middle, power-part of the Phillies hitters due up. It was a good move by Girardi (one of many he has [...]

Charlie Manuel’s Starting Pitcher Decision Gives »

He was dominant in game one at Yankee Stadium, shutting down the vaunted New York Yankee lineup in a complete game victory.

He is in his prime and is basically a win waiting to happen every time he takes [...]

Although the Yankees may be leading the World Series 2-1, Phillies fans have completely dominated Yankees fans in terms of the noise and energy exuded so far. Yankee Stadium sounded more like a wake during the first two games of the series when compared to the pure madness seen last night at Citizens Bank Park. And I’m not talking about an Irish [...]

Yankees-Phillies: New York Rocks Cole Hamels, Takes »

There are some things in life I just don’t understand. Like why my mom continues to buy single-ply toilet paper, or why Heidi Klum is married to Seal, or why a hitter would swing at the first pitch after a pitcher just walked two out of the last three batters he faced. The New York Yankees overcame a three-run deficit thanks to a gutsy [...]

Yankees-Phillies World Series: Pettitte, A-Rod Spark »

Before Game Three of the 2009 World Series could be played between the Yankees and the Phillies, the fans at Citizens Bank Park experienced an 80 minute rain delay to start the night. After the delay was over and the tarps were pulled off the field, the Fall Classic was on. After the first two games of the World Series were in New York, the series [...]
