The New York Yankees Take Sole Posession of First »

Phil Hughes was not at his best tonight, but he had the benefit of a nine run night by the Yankees offense that included homers by Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher, and Curtis Granderson, as the Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 9-3. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox both lost, giving the Yankees sole possession of first place [...]

Is Robinson Cano Less Aggressive this Season? »

Robinson Cano’s career has been a battle of improvement. And, for the most part, it has been extremely positive. After nearly winning the batting title in 2006, and hitting .306 in 2007, things looked pretty good for Cano. But, once he hit .271 in 2008, the Yankees needed an answer. The answer was Cano’s aggressiveness. In 2008, he had [...]

Marcus Thames Emerges As Unlikely New York Yankee Hero »

I'll admit that I wasn't always the biggest Marcus Thames fan.I hated his long swing. I hated how he played the outfield like a foreign exchange student in gym class. I even hated his name—and no, not his oddly pronounced last name.Has there ever been a likable Marcus? Really? No...no there hasn't.But just when it looked like Thames had a [...]

New York Yankees: Enough Moseley, Vazquez Deserves »

The Yankees never really planned on using Dustin Moseley this season. They signed him as insurance and only called him up so he wouldn’t opt-out of his contract. Then Andy Pettitte went down, and he became an important member of the 2010 Yankees. He hasn’t even done that poorly, in his starts the Yankees are 7-4. He himself is 4-2 with [...]

New York Yankees Notes: A-Rod, Lance Berkman, Alfredo »

The Yankees are taking on the A’s again today and might not need as much offense with Phil Hughes on the mound. A strong start today would probably go very far in easing the fear of the playoff rotation. Here are some notes: Alex Rodriguez went through a pregame workout with no problems yesterday. It appears he’s on track to return [...]

New York Yankees’ Offense Keeps Rolling 11-5 »

Marcus Thames hit his sixth home run in as many games as the Yankees slugged their way past the Oakland A’s 11-5. Here are some notes: Mark Teixeira returned to the lineup and hit a third inning home run that put the Yankees ahead 4-3. Dustin Moseley started and did not have his best stuff. He lasted just 4.1 innings, allowed four runs [...]

New York Yankees: The Captain Conundrum of 2011 and »

We've seen it throughout the years, as teams encounter difficult decisions, when long-serving veterans and fan-favorites enter the inevitable, athletic decline phase of their careers. No one can escape the clutches of the dreaded father time, when a player's body simply cannot do the same things that it could during the prime of his youth. [...]

CC Sabathia Doesn’t Deserve the AL Cy Young Even »

CC Sabathia leads the American League in wins. And now he's been tagged as the front runner for the 2010 American League Cy Young award. His wins are pretty, but he certainly hasn't been the best pitcher in the American League. The 7.67 runs the Yankees give him in support per game have certainly helped his Win-Loss numbers. Sabathia has given up [...]
