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 ...
Ivan Nova was once again excellent last night, holding the Rangers scoreless over 7 and 1/3 innings. While Nova only had 1 strikeout, he had a Chin-Ming Wang like 16 groundball outs. This made him both effective and efficient, as Nova threw only 98 pitches. In fact, Nova probably could have gone longer, but Girardi ...
A really sloppy game from the Yankees yesterday. AJ Burnett actually pitched very well: 3 hits and 1 walk over 7 IP and a 2.81 FIP. He was hurt by a pair of HBP and defensive errors (one of which was his own). If the Yankees had played a clean game, they very easily could ...
Last night Freddy Garcia did his best CC Sabathia impression from the night before. No, I don't mean throwing fastballs in the mid-90s; rather that Garcia wasn't perfect, but still racked up a good number of strikeouts and gave the Yankees innings. Garcia went 7, allowing 12 baserunners (10 hits and 2 walks) and striking ...
CC Sabathia clearly did not have his best stuff last night, as he allowed 13 base-runners (10 hits and 3 walks). He did however keep the Yankees in the game, allowing only 4 runs over 7 innings. That CC was able to go a full 7 despite all the base-runners is a real credit to ...
Another good start last night from reclamation project Bartolo Colon helped the Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the Tigers. If the Yankees were to start a playoff series today, Colon would have to be their #3 starter, if not the #2. Now, clearly there is a decent chance Colon won't keep this up; but ...
Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger reports that all of Phil Hughes' tests have come back negative. So it looks like he doesn't have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome after all. (h/t RAB) As mysterious as Hughes' dead arm is, part of me wonders if this is just part of the risk involved with young pitchers, especially those who ...
