Jorge Posada officially announced his retirement today and undoubtedly there will be a lot of talk about retiring Jorge’s number and his possible induction into the MLB Hall of Fame 5 years from now. The general consensus seems to be that his number will be retired, but that he falls short of the HOF. I ...
This is ultimately going to be about Derek Jeter, but I first want to mention the ongoing drama between Brian Fuentes and manager Bob Geren. For those not aware: Fuentes pretty much called out the manager for using him incorrectly. What was Geren's crime? Using Fuentes - the de facto "closer" - in ...
The Yankees currently lead all of baseball in runs scored, yet you might not know it based on the amount of criticism that the Yankee offense takes. The most common complaint is that the Yankee offense relies too much on the home run. The Yankees do rely on the homerun; I think that much is pretty ...
Clearly the Yankees are in a bit if a malaise right now. They keep finding new ways to lose, despite generally playing well enough to be right in the game. It would seem that the Yankees could use a shakeup - not unlike when in 2005 Cashman stepped in and called up Chien-Ming Wang ...
On May 16th, the 2009 NY Yankees had a record of 19-17. The 2011 NY Yankees on May 16th are 20-18. The point? Well, that it's a long season. The 2009 Yankees were actually 15-17 at one point and had recently been swept by the Red Sox. Those were some dire times, were they not? This ...
For the most part, I think Yankee fans would consider Jorge Posada a no-nonsense kind of player. He's intense and hard-working and never seems to need the spotlight. All of this is what makes last night's "Posada-Drama" so perplexing. Despite the Yankees losing to the Red Sox 6-0, Jorge asking out of the game ...
Who ever thought, going into the year, that this would be the current narrative: the Yankees once again got a quality outing from their starter but failed to win because their offense could not put together enough runs. AJ Burnett continued his string of solid outings, throwing 7 innings and allowing only 1 ER. In fact, ...
Freddy Garcia did last night what he has been doing most of the year: keeping the Yankees in the game. He went 6+, allowing only 1 earned run (on a homerun to ex-Yankee Melky Cabrera no less). Girardi chose to pull him at the first sign of trouble in the 7th, even though Garcia had ...
The headline on MLB.com reads "Jeter, Cervelli leads Yanks' five-homer barrage." Of all the improbable headlines, that's right up there with "Jorge Posada steals home in Yankee win" and "Jeter names A-Rod best man in wedding." Not that any game in May can be that important, but this was a relatively big win for the Yankees. ...
It looked like the Yankees were going to perhaps be able to rally for a victory last night, but unfortunately they fell short. Bartolo Colon's Cy Young quest hit a bit of a speed bump, as he only went 4 and 1/3 innings, giving up 5 earned runs. PitchFX was still clocking him in the ...
