It’s Time To Shut Down Joba Chamberlain

It’s time to shut down Joba Chamberlain for the remainder of the year. Why? It's simple, he doesn’t have it anymore. Chamberlain was supposed to pitch five innings last night and get the win, what would have been his first since Aug. 6 against Boston. I’ve said it all year that Chamberlain should be in the rotation because he had a chance to be a better starter than relief pitcher. This is not the case anymore. Chamberlain lived off his 98-plus MPH fastball out of the ...

Yankees-Mariners: Joba Chamberlain Rocked in Finale, M’s Take 7-1 Win

Mark Teixeira and Sergio Mitre pitched in winning efforts, but Joba Chamberlain’s effort was a losing one and it counted the most. He gave up all seven runs in the 7-1 loss to the Mariners (78-72) as the Yankees (95-55) lost another series.   Quick ‘Cap The Mariners jumped on Chamberlain early for two runs in the first and five in the second, capped by Ken Griffey Jr.’s three-run homer. Mitre took over in the fourth and only allowed one hit the rest of the game. The only ...

Yankees Rookie Hazing Pictures

As the Yankees left Seattle after a 7-1 loss, their rookies donned 1960’s Batman costumes as part of their annual rookie hazing. Mark Melancon was dressed as Batman, Michael Dunn was dressed as the Riddler, and Ramiro Pena was Catwoman. Joining them was radar gun operator Brett Weber as the Joker, video coordinator Anthony Flynn as Robin, and massage therapist Lew Potter as the Penguin. Last year’s theme was the Village People and in 2007 it was the Wizard of Oz.   Yankees Annual Rookie Hazing - 1960's Batman Yankees rookies dressed as Batman as ...

New York Yankees Call Up Ian Kennedy

After throwing three perfect innings in his last outing in Triple-A, Ian Kennedy has been called up to finish the remainder of the season with the Yankees. “This is crazy,” Kennedy said. “I didn’t dream of this happening. After not pitching all year, this seemed crazy. When he called me and told me it was going to happen...I’m still in shock.” He sounds really happy to be back...almost too happy... Kennedy has always been dominant in the minors (19-6, 1.95 ERA, .985 WHIP), but the numbers didn’t translate ...

Yankees-Mariners: Tex Leads Bombers In Blowout

Behind Mark Teixeira’s huge night and CC Sabathia’s dominant pitching, the Yankees (95-54) cruised past the Mariners (77-72) to a 10-1 win last night.   Quick ‘Cap: Teixeira’s three-run homer in the fifth inning broke the game open, and gave Sabathia a 6-0 lead. Sabathia and the Yankees experienced a near-miss in the bottom of the fifth, when Franklin Gutierrez hit a line drive back at Sabathia’s chest. He didn’t even have to throw a warm up pitch following the scare and finished the inning. Robinson ...

Something Strange Happened in the Yankee Loss Last Night at Seattle

Last night, the Yankees lost the first game of a brief six game West Coast road trip. Mariano Rivera blew just his second save all season. He had converted 36 straight save opportunities and given up one run in his previous 33 innings. That wasn't the strange thing, however. It was only the fourth time Rivera has ever given up a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 9th inning. But that isn't the strange thing either - although it really is strange for that to happen. Ichiro Suzuki hit that game winning ...

Oh No! It’s Ichiro! Mariners Walk Off vs. Mo

Mariano Rivera had struck out the first two batters of the ninth with ease, but then long-time Royal Mike Sweeney pinch hit for Josh Wilson. Sweeney doubled, and Ichiro homered to give the Mariners (77-71) a walk-off, 3-2 victory over the Yankees (94-54).   Quick ‘Cap The Yanks used a pair of sac flies from Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira to take a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning. Nobody in the world expected Rivera to blow the game after the first two batters went down on ...

Can Ian Kennedy Make the Playoff Roster?

According to Tyler Kepner of the NY Times, Yankees right handed pitcher Ian Kennedy could be joining the Yankees after making two successful minor league starts including three perfect innings for the Scranton Yankees while recovering from aneurysm surgery. "Juan Miranda on roster, sounds kik(sp)," Kepner tweeted. "Sounds like Ian Kennedy to follow soon. (sorry)" Kennedy’s first start back was a two inning performance where he only gave up one hit with one strikeout on Sep. 12 for the high-A Tampa Yankees. His next performance was with the triple-A Scranton Yankees where ...

Yankees-Mariners Series Preview

The Yankees (94-53) begin a three-game set with the all-but-eliminated Seattle Mariners (76-71) tonight.   Head-to-Head The Yanks have already taken three out of four in Seattle this season, and have won five out of seven overall.   Series Preview Date: Yankees starters Mariners starters Fri., 10:10 p.m. A.J.

Melky Cabrera Has Not Been As Clutch As You Might Think

My most recent article suggested that Brett Gardner should be starting over Melky for the rest of the season, and in the postseason. I even suggested that Melky's postseason roster spot may be more aptly used on Freddy Guzman. I received a lot of negative feedback on that, with a lot of people telling me that I wasn't valuing Melky's clutch hitting enough. I was planning on writing about how just because Melky has been clutch thus far this season, we can't expect him to continue being clutch going forward. Surprisingly, ...
