It was not a triumphant return to the majors by Andy Pettitte on Sunday. He walked three, struck out only two, threw a wild pitch and gave up two meatball home runs in six and a third innings. That said, he did a fairly good job of only allowing four runs to plate, and a ...
This is a far cry from what the Yankees, and from what we, the fans, expected this January. It seemed like the Yankees’ ran nine-deep in terms of starting pitching, mostly because they did. This was before Michael Pineda tore his labrum. This was before Triple-A implosions from both Dellin Betances (21 walks in 22-plus ...

Rays charge out at the hand of a heavy hitting offense? Perhaps. Yankees look all around sorry, while the Orioles blast off to a first-series sweep? No way. I looked ...
The fifth outfielder job for the Yankees, in the grand scheme of all things, means very little. Hell, in the grand scheme of the New York Yankees’ roster, it still will, in all likelihood, have little or no bearing on the success or failure of the team. Unless injuries ravage the outfield, Andruw Jones and ...
Tom Tango’s “The Book,” a sabermetrician’s bible of sorts, has an entire section devoted to lineup optimization. Is your team getting the most out of their offensive players on the basis of where they hit every day? Is your team sacrificing potential runs because they live by conventional wisdom? Read here if you’d like to ...
