Weekly game thread: August 13 – 19

The Yankees were actually above .500 last week, but will have a tough time keeping that going as they lost CC Sabathia for at least two starts and have to face the Rangers and the Red Sox in seven games. Joba Chamberlain also hasn't been much help at all to the bullpen as batters have hit ...

Weekly game thread: July 30 – Aug 5

The Yankees were 3-3 last week and are 3-7 in their last 11 as the offense has struggled a bit without Nick Swisher and Alex Rodriguez. They aren't losing games by a lot though, Swisher is back and Joba Chamberlain will be back soon to help out in the bullpen. A couple of series against the ...

Weekly game thread: July 2 – 8

The Yankees had a decent week last week in one respect, going 6-2 against the Indians and White Sox, but overall the loss of CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte made it a grim week overall. Now Freddy Garcia and David Phelps will have to step up in their spots against the Rays and Red Sox ...

The Yankees start the week on a 9-game winning streak and I wish interleague play would never end. The Yankees were a perfect 6-0 against National League opponents and will hope to continue that this week, the 2nd straight week of interleague play. Things are going real well for the starting rotation. The offense has ...

Weekly game thread: June 11 – 17

The Yankees had a great week last week behind a resurgent starting rotation. They nearly swept the Rays and they followed that up with an actual sweep of the Mets. They also did fairly well for themselves in the draft, nabbing Ty Hensley with their top pick at least 10-20 picks after he was expected ...

Weekly game thread: June 4 – June 10

The Yankees had a so-so week last week going 3-3 against the Angels and the Tigers. I say so-so because both of those teams are very good and the Yankees were two walk-off losses away from going 5-1 so it wasn't all bad. They have a chance to go for first place this week though ...
