New York Yankees: Why Is A.J. Burnett So Inconsistent? »

To say the least, 2010 has been a season of inconsistency for A.J. Burnett. After his first start of the season, his ERA was 5.40. By his sixth start, it was 1.99. 10 starts later, it was 5.25. Now, after his 27th start, his ERA stands at 5.15, and unless he can bring that down over a full point (unlikely), it will be the highest of his career. [...]

September To Remember: MLB Playoff Plot Thickening In »

Perhaps you remember several years ago when rock band Green Day released their hit album American Idiot (I happen to because it was the first one I ever bought). Anyway, one of the songs was titled “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” As the title suggests, the song yearns for the supposedly dreadful month to end and for October to [...]

Yankee Quick Hits: Showalter’s Revenge »

Under Buck Showalter, the Orioles have become a different team and it showed this afternoon as the O’s beat the Yankees 4-3. A.J. Burnett wasn’t horrible, but wasn’t good enough, as he allowed four runs over seven innings for the loss. Here are some quick highlights: The Yankees had a guy with a .331 OBP leading off and a guy [...]

New York Yankees: How Bad Is Derek Jeter’s 2010? »

Everyone knows by now that Derek Jeter is having the worst season of his career. His career OPS-plus is 120, and this year it's 95. Last year he had one of his best years, with an OPS-plus of 132 and the best defensive season of his career (finally posting a positive UZR).  This year, his defense hasn’t been the worst of his career, [...]

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 [...]
