Thoughts on the All-Star game

Growing up, I thought it was a fact of life that the American League was simply better than the National League every single year, with the senior circuit being a glorified version of Triple-A in a way.   Each July, I watched AL superstars like Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Ken Griffey Jr., Manny Ramirez, and Ichiro ...

Adam Warren ready to make MLB debut for the Yankees

Well who could have seen that coming? I don’t know about you, but the weight of Andy Pettitte’s injury hit me like a freight train on Wednesday afternoon.  To put aside the on-the-field implications of the injury, I feel so terrible for the guy.  He didn’t sign up for this.  He didn’t make this glorious comeback ...

A belated happy Father’s Day

First of all, I want to wish all you dads out there a belated happy Fathers Day. I hope your weekend was filled with gifts, friends, beer, and most importantly, Yankees baseball with your children.  I’m only 21 years old, so I am lucky enough to still have a relatively young, healthy father who will ...

Yankees options without Brett Gardner

Another day, another setback in Brett Gardner’s rehab from the elbow strain and bone bruise suffered way back on April 17th while making a sliding catch.  Crazy, considering how insignificant the injury initially looked, at least from the upper deck, where I was watching the game from.

Which Yankees deserve an All-Star game nod?

Excited to see 5 Yankee minor leaguers

One of the biggest positives about living in the Danbury, Connecticut area is that I am no more than an hour’s drive or train ride away from Yankee Stadium. But sadly, the Yankees are the only baseball team, minor or major league, within an hour of my house. As a lover of baseball and the warm ...

Ranting about the struggling Russell Martin

Is it just me, or is anyone else getting really sick of Russell Martin? I don’t know about you, but I’m extremely tired of his steady diet of strikeouts and feeble at-bats in which he looks completely clueless, as well as his inability to hit with runners in scoring position.  He looks like me circa ...

Yankees struggles continue with RISP

I don’t know about you, but it’s very hard to watch the Yankees right now. In April, I didn’t get too frustrated because, well, it’s April.  But now, we’re a fifth of the way through the season.  We shouldn’t still be waiting for this team to climb out of the offensive funk they started the season ...
