Roger Maris and Don Larsen: Home Run Record and »

The New York Yankees finished third in 1959. It was the first time since 1954 that the Yankees didn't win the pennant, but while the 1954 team won 103 games, the 1959 team finished a dismal third, 15 games behind the pennant-winning Chicago White Sox. It was clear that the Yankees needed help. The Kansas City A's usually provided that help.On [...]

Yankees Notes: Pettitte, Swisher, Curtis, and »

The Yankees have owned the Orioles this season, beating them in 10 of the 12 times the two teams have faced each other, but Baltimore has been a different team since hiring former Yankees manager Buck Showalter. So this week’s three game series will not be as easy as the head-to-head record would make it seem. Here are some notes: The [...]

Yankee Stadium: The Place That Converts Yankee »

On Sunday, I made my second journey to the new Yankee Stadium with my fiance, Kate, and watched the New York Yankees lose, 7-3, to the Toronto Blue Jays. For the second time in two years, Kate and I enjoyed ourselves at one of my new favorite places on earth. Officially, I am not a Yankee's fan but the more I watch the AL East's first-place team [...]

New York Yankees Have Chance To Pad AL East Lead »

At the end of Sunday’s play, the New York Yankees have a 2.5 game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yanks and the Rays are most definitely going to the playoffs; the only question is which team wins the American League East. The two teams play each other for seven epic games in the next two weeks. However, the Yankees have a chance to pad [...]

New York Yankees Need To Get Rid of Joba Chamberlain »

New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain has been one of the most overrated prospects over the past couple of years. He all made us say "wow" when he came out of nowhere in the 2007 season, pitching the year with a ridiculous ERA of 0.38. Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman didn't know what to do with him except to keep his innings [...]

Josh Hamilton Out: What Does That Mean for the Other »

Yesterday, Josh Hamilton ran into a wall chasing down a fly ball.  Today, it was confirmed that he would be out indefinitely. So what does that mean for the other MVP hopefuls like Robinson Cano, Miguel Cabrera, and possibly even CC Sabathia? Hamilton was the clear MVP favorite, hitting .361 with 31 home runs and 97 RBI.  Still only in [...]

Alex Rodriguez Returns, New York Yankees’ »

The Yankees got Alex Rodriguez back today, but his 2-for-5 day wasn’t enough to overcome Phil Hughes' poor start as the Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 7-3, ending their winning streak at eight games. Here are some highlights: Hughes allowed three home runs for the second time this season (last time was July 4, also against [...]

Stats: Curtis Granderson Since the Fix »

The Yankees traded Austin Jackson this offseason because despite the fact that they liked him, they liked Curtis Granderson more. However, through most of the season, Granderson was either injured or a disappointment or both. While Granderson was struggling, Jackson was thriving in Detroit. His BABIP might have been sky high, suggesting that he [...]

Yankees Notes: A-Rod, Kearns, Golson, Vazquez, and the »

The Yankees have Phil Hughes on the mound this afternoon as they go for the sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays, and their ninth consecutive victory overall. Here are some notes: Alex Rodriguez will be activated this afternoon. He will play third and hit cleanup. Marcus Thames got the start in right field yesterday when Nick Swisher was [...]

A-Rod ‘Feels Good’ After Taking Swings, »

Starting pitcher Andy Pettitte and third baseman Alex Rodriguez, both attempting to return from injuries, matched up between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. in a simulated game. Rodriguez faced Pettitte six times in a three-inning simulated game, stringing together a couple of hits. He struck out once, grounded out twice, and popped out in his remaining [...]
