Brett Gardner’s Early Success »

In a response to Rob’s earlier post about Marcus Thames’ superhuman production this season, I thought I’d shed some light on Thames’ platoon buddy, Brett Gardner.  Warning to all readers: I’m a very big fan of Gardner and he has become one of my favorite players since breaking in with the club in 2008.  [...]

Yankees-White Sox Series Preview: Can New York Sweep? »

This is do or die for New York's Javier Vazquez . Unfortunately for Javy, with the way John Danks has been throwing the ball lately, it is looking more like the latter. Fans are not going to be kind to the man who is making $11.5 million and is being outpitched by 23-year-old Phil Hughes , who is making $447,000. Hughes is far and away [...]

Stats: Marcus Thames Outshines Curtis Granderson, »

The Yankees signed outfielder Marcus Thames this season to do one job—hit lefties. So far, all he has done is destroy lefties. Try these numbers on for size: 8 G, 16 AB, 3 R, 10 H, 3 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 BB, 4 K, .625 AVG, .684 OBP, 1.000 SLG, 1.684 OPS. Now, so far Thames’ outfield defense has been pretty atrocious, but nights like last [...]

New York Yankees: Post-Orioles Thoughts »

The Yankees wrapped up their nine game road trip last night with a win over the Baltimore Orioles. They improved to 14-7 on the season and remain 2.5 games behind AL East leader, Tampa Bay. There are only two teams in baseball with a better record than the Yankees right now, Tampa Bay and the St. Louis Cardinals. Looking back on the series with [...]

Joe Dimaggio’s Untainted Achievement »

Now that the single season home run record, the lifetime home run record, and the record for most career hits are held by individuals who will get into the Hall of Fame only by paying the admission fee, Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak really is the greatest and most glamorous record in baseball, but for a few minutes, on a muggy [...]

New York Yankees Read: Burnett and Cano Turning »

The Yankees won yesterday behind stellar performances from starter AJ Burnett and second baseman Robinson Cano, so naturally they were the subject of quite a few stories today. Joel Sherman of the NY Post had a particularly good one that you should check out. In Cano’s piece he discussed how rarely the Yankees offer their young players [...]

Robinson Cano Soars To Stardom for the New York »

Robinson Cano finally gets it, and now he is assaulting opposing pitchers.   The immensely talented second baseman has been beset by immaturity and lackadaisical play at times in the past, but if his torrid start is any indication, those days are over.   Hitting a scalding .407 with eight homers and 17 RBI, Cano leads the AL batting race [...]

Yankees-Orioles: Robinson Cano, AJ Burnett Help New »

Robinson Cano posted his sixth career multi-homer game, and A.J. Burnett pitched eight scoreless innings as New York blanked Baltimore, 4-0, Thursday night at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. New York finished 5-4 on their nine-game road trip, while Baltimore missed an opportunity to win their first series of the season.After Cano grounded out to end [...]

New York Yankees Destroy Charm City »

Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened up in 1992. It was the resurrection of baseball in Baltimore as well as for the rest of the country. Back then, other teams wanted their 'Taj Mahal' of a stadium. Fans can go see new ballparks in any place of the country. In our town, we have couple of new ballparks, a new hockey arena, a new football [...]

Can the New York Yankees Please Summon Mark Melancon »

One of the biggest factors in bringing up young players from the minor leagues is when they have done all they can do down on the farm.  A young player who dominates his minor league-level over a couple-month period should be promoted to the next level. A player who dominates Triple A over a long period should also be promoted.  No [...]
