MLB New York Yankees: No Reason to Be Excited for »

Before he becomes another Joba Chamberlain, trade him for the sake of the organization. I still don't understand why Montero causes so much excitement: he's not fast, he has improved in his defense but not much, and he fails to hit against even 40-man roster pitchers as proved in spring training. What's even worse? He hasn't improved [...]

1957 WS: Sal Maglie Makes Amends for Beating Whitey »

It was vintage Whitey Ford, although some didn't think so.The only run the Milwaukee Braves managed came in the seventh inning when Wes Covington doubled and came home on a Red Schoendient two-out single. The Yankees game left-hander, who had suffered from arm problems during the 1957 season, demonstrated that he was quite healthy as he limited [...]

In front of an Ebbets Field crowd of 34,479 fans, including President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Whitey Ford lasted only three innings in the opening game of the 1956 World Series. The Brooklyn Dodgers scored all six of their runs off the Yankees' game little left-hander, who was Casey Stengel’s choice to pitch the opener despite everyone’s [...]

New York Yankees: 8 Players Who Were Called To Play »

Yesterday, Jorge Posada playing second base against the Oakland A's wasn't the first time the New York Yankees have played one of their legends in a weird position.  Several other Bombers' greats have been asked to play out of position in Yankees history.  Here are eight unusual position changes made by a Yankee, in no specific [...]

1955 World Series: Whitey Ford Almost Beat the »

The fact that former Yankee great Whitey Ford failed to complete the first game of the 1955 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers at Yankee Stadium was a negative, but the New York Yankees left-hander still managed to hang on for a 6-5 victory. Facing a powerful Brooklyn batting order in which Duke Snider was the only left-handed hitter, Ford [...]

Phil Hughes Falters as New York Yankees Bats Explode »

The New York Yankees hit three grand slams in one game yesterday, a feat never before achieved by any MLB team in the history of the sport. Lost in all the hoopla, however, is the stark reality that the Yankees, despite some recent positive signs, do not have a reliable pitcher in Phil Hughes. While one start does not a season make, when [...]

New York Yankees: Derek Jeter on the Brink of .300 »

With every base hit, Derek Jeter is climbing further up Major League Baseball’s all-time hits leaderboard. Two more hits will tie him with Craig Biggio and three will push him into baseball’s all-time Top 20. Each subsequent base hit is also doing more and more to silence the waves of criticism he faced earlier in the season. The first [...]

2011 New York Yankees:Team MVP- It’s Not Curtis »

Curtis Granderson, who has overcome his demons against left-handed pitchers, has put together the best season of his career thus far and has become a serious and legitimate contender to claim MVP honors in the American League this season. Despite his excellent MVP-caliber season, the likable Yankee center fielder will not, in my opinion, be named [...]
