Yankees take first game against Red Sox »

The Yankees (98-56) beat down the Red Sox (91-62) 9-5 last night, led by Joba Chamberlain’s quality start and Alex Rodriguez’s perfect night at the plate. The magic number is now down to three.  Quick ‘Cap: A-Rod drove in Derek Jeter in the first inning on a single, and then cranked a two-run homer into the second deck in left in a [...]

According to Jorge Arangure of ESPN, Cuban defector and left handed pitcher Aroldis Chapman has been declared a free agent by major league baseball and is now free to sign with any team in the bigs. Both the Yankees, Red Sox and others are expected to be interested in the fire balling 21-year-old. That seems to be just speculation so far, but it [...]

Red Sox-Yankees Series Preview »

The series we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. With the playoff race not quite as tight as expected, the tension won’t be at its usual peak-height when the Red Sox and Yankees battle in the Bronx. However, it’s still Red Sox and Yankees in September, and both teams have a chance to clinch a playoff seed. Head-to-Head: It’s [...]

Ian Kennedy Returns to the Yankees, Pitches a »

Ian Kennedy returned for the Yankees yesterday in the eighth inning versus the Angels. It was anything but an easy inning, as Kennedy loaded the bases with an hit batter and two walks. Kennedy also recorded a strikeout. The result was ultimately positive as he allowed no runs, recording the final out on a popup to Freddy Guzman. So, how did he [...]

John Kruk: Stick to TV »

Now’s a good time to look at how various teams are lining up for the postseason—in fact I’m hoping to do just that in the next day or two—and consequently the front page of ESPN today has an article looking at every team’s postseason weaknesses, authored by “analyst” John Kruk.  You might know John [...]

Yankees Clinch Playoffs »

When Mariano Rivera shut the door on the Yankees 6-5 win over the Angels last night they clinched at least a Wildcard victory and got back to the playoffs after missing them for the first time since 1994 last season. There was no champagne or celebration though as they have their sights set on the division championship and beyond. Via Peter [...]

Zack Greinke Afraid of Pitching in New York? »
