Derek Jeter won his 5th Gold Glove award yesterday, to the chagrin of all but the most ardent Jeter fans. I am certainly a Yankee homer and will find ways to justify things that are good for Yankee players, but this borders on absurdity. It's not just that Jeter isn't the best defensive shortstop ...
So if you're anything like me, you've probably waited until the last minute to choose a Halloween costume. You love the Yankees, but just putting on a Yankee hat and your Rivera jersey isn't really gonna cut it. Here are some last minute ideas: 1. Cliff Lee - Yankee Free Agent Acquisition I'm going as this personally. ...
Joe Girardi's 3-year tenure as Yankee manager has largely been a success. He won a World Series, took a team to the ALCS, and throughout has done a good job of keeping his players rested and motivated. The bullpen in particular has done well under Girardi; in each of the last 2 seasons the bullpen ...
October 20th, 2010 Dear Mr. Cashman: I am writing to express my interest in the position of Manager of the New York Yankees. It is my understanding that the person in that role currently will have his contract reevaluated at season's end and I would like to submit my resume for consideration. This role has always interested me, ...
Before Game 1 of the ALDS yesterday, I briefly mentioned how I thought the whole "pitching wins in the postseason" narrative is a little flawed. Clearly, pitching - starting pitching in particular - is a gigantic factor in deciding who wins. Tampa Bay certainly wishes they didn't have to face Cliff Lee yesterday (and ...
Less than two hours away from the beginning of the Yankees 2010 postseason, I've officially decided I'm not going to do any predictions. Last season, I was wrong in every single series the Yankees weren't involved in (which is fine, since I WAS right about the Yankees winning the World Series). I like to think ...
The MLB season is a marathon, but it tends to end with more of a sprint. Realistically, 162 games are probably enough for us to figure out who the best team is, but simply awarding a championship to the team with the best record lacks drama. So instead a team's entire season, no matter their ...
Everyone knows by now that Derek Jeter is having the worst season of his career. His career OPS+ is 120 and this year it's 95. Last year he had one of his best years, with an OPS+ of 132 and the best defensive season of his career (finally posting a positive UZR). This year ...
Everyone knows by now that A.J. Burnett is pitching terribly, leading to speculation that he, like Javier Vazquez, will be skipped in the rotation. Perhaps this will be the case, but it doesn't seem like the solution for the Yankees or Burnett. First off, would skipping a turn actually benefit Burnett? Obviously I am ...
Monday night's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays is a tough one to swallow - not just because the Yankees lost a close one, but because some of it was out of their control. In the 3rd inning, Eduardo Nunez threw a ball wide of first that Mark Teixeira made an amazing stretch on, and yet ...
