No Gonzo, No Problem: Mariano Rivera and the Yankees »

It was definitely not the most well-played game ever, but it was an instant classic for the 2010 season—at least for the Yankees, anyway. The Bombers went into the ninth inning trailing 5-4. Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher both walked to lead off the inning against Aaron Heilman. Mark Teixeira’s ground ball moved them to second and third, [...]

New York Yankees: Unusual and Unexpected Road to the »

If I told you before the season that Derek Jeter would have a worse batting average than Nick Swisher in the middle of June, you probably would have said "Are you crazy?", or something of that nature. Now that we are in the middle of June, and Swisher does have a higher batting average than Jeter, you have to wonder how the Yankees are in [...]

MLB Trade Rumor: Orioles Willing To Trade Ty Wigginton »

The trade deadline is barely over a month away, and the Yankees, as usual, are expected to be buyers again this season. Thanks to a payroll over $200 million, they really don’t have many needs, but they do need some bullpen help and another bat. One player on the trade block who could help the Yankees is Ty Wigginton. Even though we [...]

A Tale of Two Pitchers: Yankees’ A.J. Burnett »

The Yankees maintained their loose grip on first place in the American League Eastern Division Monday night, despite being handed an embarrassing, 10-4 loss to the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks. Since the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox did not play, the Bronx Bombers retained a slim, 0.5-game lead on their division rivals. That contest [...]

New York Yankees Notes: Andy Pettitte, Alex Rodriguez, »

The Yankees beat the Diamondbacks 9-3 last night behind a strong seven-inning performance by Andy Pettitte and a big home run by Alex Rodriguez . The score was a lot closer until the eighth inning when the Yankees broke it open with six runs in the inning. Here are some notes: The home run by A-Rod snapped a streak of 49 at bats without a [...]

New York Yankees Bullpen Frightens Me »

It's a good thing the New York Yankees starting pitchers have been able to go deep into ballgames most of the season. It is, however, a long season, and the bullpen will need to step up and win some games for this club. Do you feel confident they can? I sure don't. Outside of Mariano Rivera , who is having yet another excellent season, the Yankees [...]

Future Star: Justin Upton Leads Diamondbacks Past »

As a fan of the New York Yankees, an American League East team, it is easy to forget about the Arizona Diamondbacks. The last time the two faced each other was back in 2007, at the old Yankee Stadium. Looking at the bigger picture, the D-backs pose no real threat to the Yankees, whose hopes are to repeat as World Series Champions. Even last [...]

Mark Teixeira Slams New York Mets Back To Reality »

The New York Yankees beat the New York Mets for the second game in a row to win the series, but this weekend a lot more changed for the Bombers. Yankees take first place in the AL East. The Empire State Building is wearing pinstripes. The real Mark Teixeira finally showed up. CC Sabathia and Mariano Rivera never looked better. The [...]
