Two things that have been going well for the Yankees lately, CC Sabathia and their bullpen, both struggled last night, but when your offense scores 12 runs those kind of things are forgiven. Here are some notes: Sabathia went seven innings, but allowed five runs and David Robertson and Joba Chamberlain only managed to get one batter out [...]

Why Do the New York Yankees Keep Trusting A.J. »

If a New York Yankees fan is reading this, you might just go on to comment how dumb this is, saying how Burnett will turn things around.  Hold on a second, you can't disagree that he is the most inconsistent pitcher in all of baseball today. I know how it hurts to hear it considering the fact that I'm a Yankees fan, but it's true. With [...]

New York Yankees: Getting A.J. Burnett on Track »

Everyone knows by now that A.J. Burnett is pitching terribly, leading to speculation that he, like Javier Vazquez, will be skipped in the rotation. Perhaps this will be the case, but it doesn’t seem like the solution for the Yankees or Burnett. First off, would skipping a turn actually benefit Burnett? Obviously, I am not a pitching coach, [...]

Yankees Notes: Burnett, Pettitte, Aceves, Berkman, and »

Kerry Wood’s Sudden Excellence Confusing the »

When two opposing forces meet, the results can be explosive. We see it in television, movies, and even in our everyday sayings (the unstoppable force vs. the immovable object, or more simply, red vs. blue). The Yankees gave a huge contract to Carl Pavano after the 2004 season, and after the 2008 season, the Yankees gave up on Pavano. This was the [...]

The New York Yankees are probably coming close to putting a list of September call-ups together. Kei Igawa may have just lost his spot on that list.

Five Options the Yankees Could Use If Andy Pettitte »

On Friday, Andy Pettitte threw a bullpen session in Chicago. He threw at 75 percent however felt fine.  That was supposed to be the day when we would know whether or not Pettitte would come back.  Instead, he will probably throw another session and the Yankees will take it from there.  There are two possible outcomes for that [...]

With Strasburg’s Injury will Yankees Alter Their »

Stephen Strasburg needs Tommy John surgery (TJS), and if you are in shock over this, you shouldn't be. Strasburg has all the requirements of a guy destined for this procedure. First, he throws extremely hard, upwards of 100 MPH. That is just too taxing on the throwing arm’s tendons and ligaments. There is a certain threshold for the body [...]
