Torre’s Yankee Reunion Exciting the Dodger »

Yankees -Dodgers  is one of the most classic and enduring rivalries in all of American sports. These two clubs have had a unique relationship since the early 20th century when the Dodgers still played at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. Having met each other in the World Series 11 times, most recently in the 1981 fall classic, these are [...]

New York Yankees Prospect Andrew Brackman Promoted to »

According to Josh Norris of the Trentonian , the Yankees have promoted their 2007 first-round draft pick RHP Andrew Brackman to Double-A Trenton and he will start tonight. I’ve written about Brackman recently , as he seems to have turned a corner in his development. He’s pitched in 12 games this season with a 5-4 record and a 5.10 [...]

Hey, Joe: Breaking Down the New York Yankees Managers »

As you may have heard, tonight's interleague opener between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers doubles as a reunion between Joe Torre and the franchise he once helped lead to four World Series titles. Nearly to a man, the praise of Torre has been effusive, with the notable exception of Alex Rodriguez, who's been conspicuously [...]

Yankees-Dodgers Series Preview: New York Faces Former »

The Yankees (45-27) square off against former manager Joe Torre for the first time since he left the team after the 2007 season, as New York travels to face the Dodgers in Los Angeles for a three-game series this weekend. Torre led the Bombers to four World Series titles between 1996-2000, but lost his touch and overworked the bullpen [...]

A Waste Of Money: The 10 Worst Signings In New York »

The Yankees buy their talent. Big deal. The Yankees buy their championships. They're not breaking any rules. The Yankees have more money than any other franchise in MLB. Isn't that great? But since all of the Yankee haters out there believe that every signing in Yankees history has brought a World Series championship to New York, in the [...]

New York Yankees In a Battle At Top of AL East »

The Bombers are barely leading the pack. What started out as a four-horse race with the Yanks playing second fiddle is now a crowd of three with the Yanks on top. With Toronto currently down seven games, the Yankees are preoccupied with keeping the Rays (two games back) and Red Sox (two and a half games back) at a distance. I must admit, [...]

Breaking Down A.J. Burnett’s June Swoon »

A.J. Burnett’s recent struggles are not a secret.  When you have a June ERA of 10.35 and WHIP of 2.00, it’s kind of hard to hide.  Let’s dissect his numbers in June and see if we can pinpoint where things have gone off course: 5.0 BB/9 IP He’s had problems with his control on and off, but for his career, he has a [...]

Yankees Notes: Mariano, Granderson, A-Rod, Torre »

Curtis Granderson hit another 10th inning home run, and Mariano Rivera escaped a bases loaded nobody-out jam, as the Yankees won 6-5 in 10 innings last night. You can read about it here. Here are some notes: Both Boston and Tampa Bay lost last night, so the Yankees increased their first-place lead to 2.5 games. Rivera allowed a 10th inning hit to [...]

Mariano Rivera Shows Why He’s Still the Best »

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera almost had flashbacks to 2001 when he lost the World Series to the Arizona Diamondbacks. In that game, it all started with a bloop single. Last night a 10th inning rally by the Diamondbacks started the same way. After center fielder Curtis Granderson gave the Yankees a 6-5 lead with a solo home run in the top [...]

New York Yankees: Joe Girardi Makes Excellent Move »

It wasn't a classic to begin the evening, with lots of walks and terrible clutch hitting, but last night's New York Yankees-Arizona Diamondbacks matchup ended up being a really good baseball game. It had everything in the latter innings: great defensive plays, big hits (although not enough), and some stellar clutch pitching by the greatest relief [...]
