Yesterday was a showdown between two young starters with 9-1 records and the Yankees Phil Hughes came out on top of the Mets Mike Pelfrey as the Yanks beat the Mets 5-3. Now 10-1 Hughes looks like a strong candidate for the All-Star game. Here are some notes: Unfortunately for Hughes he may not be able to ...
The Yankees are back in 1st place after they beat the Astros 9-5 yesterday behind a mostly strong performance by Phil Hughes, another Jorge Posada grand slam. Here are some notes: The Yankees record is now 40-23, tied for the best in baseball. Posada is the first Yankee to hit Grannies in back-to-back games since Bill Dickey in ...
The Yankees are going for the sweep today against the Houston Astros after beating them 9-3 yesterday behind a strong performance by Javier Vazquez and a grand slam by Jorge Posada. Here are some notes: Vazquez is 5-2 in his last seven appearances. He has a 2.93 ERA in 40 IP during that time. Posada has struggled since ...
The Yankees lost to the Blue Jays 3-2 yesterday in the 14th inning. Chad Gaudin was on the mound when they lost with Mariano Rivera fully rested and waiting in the bullpen. I'll never understand why you would ever use such an inferior reliever with Mo waiting. Play for the win, not the statistic. I ...
Last offseason the Yankees were in the market for an outfielder that could hit lefties. The tricky thing was that Johnny Damon was a free agent. The Yankees didn't want Damon though. They didn't want to deal with the hassle of dealing with his agent Scott Boras and certainly didn't want to give in to his ...
The Yankees got a much needed off-day yesterday that more than everything else gave some of their walking wounded a chance to heal. We already heard this morning that Curtis Granderson is on track to come back this Friday. Now we have a couple more updates. Javier Vazquez Vazquez was in the middle of a dominant outing ...
While running down a list of injuries the Yankees sustained yesterday I noted how Jorge Posada's foot injury had been lingering and not improving the way they thought it would. He made such little improvement that the Yankees sent him to get an MRI to make sure everything was OK. As it turns out, Posada has ...
The Yankees signed outfielder Marcus Thames this season to do one job, hit lefties, and so far all he has done is destroy lefties. Try these numbers on for size: 8 G, 16 AB, 3 R, 10 H, 3 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 BB, 4 K, .625 AVG, .684 OBP, 1.000 SLG, 1.684 ...
It's April 26 and the Yankees have dropped their first series of the season, not bad. The problem is that for the second time in a week the team's manager, Joe Girardi, has made a couple of questionable moves that may have cost the Yankees the game. 1st Questionable Move The first one may be his insistence ...
Late in last night's 6-4 loss to the Angels, Yankees manager Joe Girardi made a pair of very questionable moves that may have been the direct cause for last night's loss and they certainly have people up in arms. The 1st Bad Move The first move came in the form of a pitching change involving David Robertson ...
