Series Preview: Yankees at Blue Jays

The New York Yankees (34-20) just completed the first third of their season and they're finally facing off against the Toronto Blue Jays (31-24).  I did a terrible job of time management, so this series preview is going to be rather abbreviated. Starting Pitchers RHP A.J. Burnett (6-2, 3.28) vs. LHP Brett Cecil (5-2, 3.81) LHP Andy Pettitte ...

Gracefully Moving To DH

Rob wrote about it earlier and there were some insightful comments by our readers, but I'm just going to talk about the Jorge Posada situation a little more.  But first, a little background info.

Series Preview: Yankees vs. Indians

"Whoa, did I just do that?"

I know last night's loss to the Twins was a bit deflating, but let's not overlook the fact that the Yankees took two of three on the road from a very good Twins team.  Also worth noting, Target Field looked fantastic. You know what other stadium looks fantastic? Yankee Stadium, and that's where the Yankees will ...

Series Preview: Yankees vs. Red Sox

Less of this and more winning, please.

I find it crazy that we’re going to have played the Red Sox eight times and played an interleague series before we face the Blue Jays once this year, but I digress.  The New York Yankees (24-13) have taken four of six from the Boston Red Sox (19-19) this season going into the miniaturized two ...

Game #34 – Yankees at Tigers – Scorecard

Yankees Lineup 5/13

Not a great showing by the Yankees this afternoon as they were shutout for the second time in as many days.  With today's loss, the Yankees fall to 1-2 on days when I keep score.  We're gonna have to work on that..

Juan Miranda Gets the Nod [Update]

Juan Miranda come on down!

According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees have called up first baseman Juan Miranda for tonight's game against the Detroit Tigers.  Miranda, who bats lefty, will most likely platoon with Marcus Thames in the DH spot until Nick Johnson returns from his wrist injury. Miranda is off to a so-so start in Scranton this season, hitting .260 ...
