Last week, Brett Gardner took home the title of Player of the Week after he had a great home stand, which included a walk-off against the Tampa Bay Rays. This week, we move from the outfield to the dugout, but our Player of the Week isn’t a typical bench player. […]

Player of the Week: Alex Rodriguez

This weekend was surely a weekend the Yankees wanted to forget. After losing two out of three to the Texas Rangers, they hoped to go to Boston to reverse their bad fortune. Unfortunately, the Red Sox swept the Bronx Bombers and left the Yankees five games back in the American […]

Thoughts after a brutal Yankees / Red Sox series

Joe+Girardi+New+York+Yankees+v+Texas+Rangers+KV_o3Lebod_l 14
April was a long month. In fact, it was so long, you’d think the entire season went by in four weeks. But the truth of the matter is, April felt so long because the Yankees have been playing poor baseball. They finished the month 8-14, which was their worst record […]

April was awful, but May is a clean slate

It seems everyday the Yankees are finding new ways to lose. And last night, the offense and bullpen gift wrapped the first game of the three game set against their bitter rivals. The Yankees came into the series against the Boston Red Sox four games out of first place and […]

Are the Yankees digging a hole they can’t climb out of?

In 2009, Aroldis Chapman defected from Cuba with dreams of being a professional Major League Baseball player. Seven years later, Chapman officially became a U.S. citizen. With Chapman currently serving a 30-day suspension, he found time to finalize documentation in becoming a citizen of the United States. Chapman announced the […]

Yankees @ Red Sox pitching matchups

Luis+Severino+Seattle+Mariners+v+New+York+sr--KD-qbc0l 3
Last season when the Yankees called up starter Luis Severino, he exceeded expectations and appeared as if he was ready to handle the Yankees rotation full time in 2016. Four starts into the 2016 campaign, Severino has floundered in the rotation. And that’s because he’s having a difficult time locating […]

Luis Severino’s lack of location is still a big problem

The shift is potentially one of the most strategic moves in baseball, since it prevents a normally good average hitter–Mark Teixeira for example–from getting a base hit because of where he hits the ball. But if Joe Girardi was the commissioner of Major League Baseball, the shift would cease to […]

If Joe Girardi were commissioner, he would ban the shift

Yankees @ Rangers FINAL: Rangers 10, Yankees 1 WIN: A.J. Griffin (3-0, 2.52 ERA) LOSS: Luis Severino (0-3, 6.86 ERA) After taking the first game of the three game set on Monday night, the Yankees attempted to take Game 2. However, this was all Texas Rangers as Luis Severino gave […]

Yankees fall to Rangers 10-1

Here’s a few notes prior to this evening’s game against the Texas Rangers: — One of the few things I missed yesterday was the Yankees re-acquired LHP Phil Coke from the Lancaster Barnstormers of the independent Atlantic League. Coke last pitched for the Yankees in 2009, when he pitched 60 […]

Some Notes: Coke, Hicks, Pinder and Rodriguez

Over the winter, the Yankees traded John Ryan Murphy to the Minnesota Twins in exchange for Aaron Hicks with one goal in mind; to keep the starting outfield healthy and rested. However, Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner have seen more than their fair share of day offs to begin the […]

It’s time to stop the Hicks/Gardner/Ellsbury “platoon”
