Honestly, we never thought it would come to this: from Yankee manager, Joe Girardi, down to the most fair-weather of fans, the expectation that Freddy Garcia would be handed the ball every fifth day in the dog days of August was the stuff of nightmares. But as we wait – impatiently – for the return ...
The following two months and postseason will tell whether the Yankees' late-season acquisitions were worth all the ink it’s been getting both here and in Japan, but there’s a pretty impressive list of some big names – including a small handful of Hall of Famers – that the Steinbrenner-era Yankees have picked up at the ...
Imagining if there were no Rafael Soriano in the Yankee bullpen. Imagine that Mariano Rivera was lost for the season in May and then imagine that nearly immediately after that devastation, David Robertson was bequeathed the interim closer’s job only to go on the disabled list for a number of weeks. Imagine what the New ...
It’s been a long time since we as Yankee fans have had to take the Baltimore Orioles seriously; Camden Yards being one of those places that the Bomber bats go to get healthy. Yes, it hasn’t been generations since a twelve year old boy snatched a Derek Jeter fly-ball out of the clutches of O’s ...
God only knows how late Yankee owner, George M. Steinbrenner, would feel about the team’s off-season moves, but I’d like to think that The Boss would have given the news that Lou Piniella had returned to the fold the thumbs up. “Sweet Lou” – nicknamed for both his great swing and sarcastically for his fiery ...
Last season both Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez would have to admit that they were pressing to reach personal milestones. More or less guaranteeing Hall of Fame induction reaching 3000 hits for the Captain and 600 homeruns for A-Rod, were marks that put player over team and in both instances, we wanted them to get ...
Thurman Munson would have been sixty-five years old this week. He should be showing up to Old Timer’s Day with the requisite paunch and the for-the-fans mutton chops still in place – frozen from the 1970s – laughing behind the batting cage with Sparky and Bucky, burying the hatchet with Reggie “Not the Straw that ...
The list of New York Yankee players who have surpassed expectations during the 2012 season to date clearly starts with the Captain – Derek Jeter – and then there’s Raul Ibanez (why did I want to write: “And then there’s Maude?”) and that’s about it. Having already written a piece in praise of the aforementioned ...
If you asked Nolan Ryan – both as a pitcher and as president of the Rangers – he would most likely say it’s a BS-number to look at, but to just about everyone else around the game of baseball these days, pitch count has become something like the National debt. As Yankee fans we need ...
"Yeah, yeah," they'll bitch in Boston. "Bought another pennant," they'll lament in Los Angeles. And everywhere Yankee fans will take a long moment from celebrating number twenty-eight to have to have that same old, it's exhausted argument; this argument is so old and musty it should be hanging in a museum. Admittedly, it was valid ...
