Yankees manager Joe Girardi hasn't announced what the playoff rotation will be other than CC Sabathia as the Game 1 starter, but after he spoke with reporters on the subject it sure sounds like it will be Andy Pettitte in Game 2 and Hiroki Kuroda in Game 3. When Girardi was asked if Kuroda, who has struggled ...
Not exactly sure why, it could be getting ready for Andy Pettitte, the playoffs, or just to skip Freddy Garcia, but the Yankees have decided to take advantage of Thursday's off-day and have shuffled the rotation a bit. Garcia was supposed to pitch today, but instead will be skipped one time through the rotation. Everyone else ...
Phil Hughes continued his hot pitching as he beat the Blue Jays 2-1 at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night while holding to the Jays to just one run over seven innings. It was the 10th time in his last 12 starts that he has allowed three earned runs or less. Rafael Soriano bounced back from a rough ...
The Yankees had their chances, but like they have many times over the past two weeks they lost a very close game to the Orioles 5-4 behind a decent performance from Freddy Garcia. It has now been eight loses in the last 11 games. Here is the recap and graph. Here is what the Yankees blogosphere has ...
There have been so many surprises in the Bronx this season. The comeback, the return to form, and the injury to Andy Pettitte are three all rolled into one. The bullpen has been chock-full of them so far, ranging from unheralded middle relievers like Cody Eppley to the closer-turned 7th inning guy-turned closer Rafael Soriano, ...
Phil Hughes doesn’t like Yankee Stadium. It’s short fences aren’t fit for his league leading 48.1% fly-ball rate, and it bites him with home run after home run. Him and Yankee Stadium were never meant to be friends. Each of them have little invested in the success of the other; Yankee Stadium doesn’t help Hughes ...
Welcome to the post-Mariano Rivera era where Joe Girardi decides that mixing and matching in the 9th inning is just as good as bringing in David Robertson from the start. The Yankees blew a late lead to lose 4-3 against the White Sox last night. Here is the recap and graph. Here is what the Yankees ...
The evolution of Phil Hughes' curveball has been a little odd. Out of high school it was said to be his best pitch, but then the Yankees made him pocket it as they tried to teach him a slider in the minor leagues. Since then it's never really been a true plus pitch for him. Sometimes ...
The Yankees lost a wild one in the Bronx Wednesday afternoon when those on hand sat in 90-degree weather and watched nine homers sail into the seats. Phil Hughes made up for a no-homer game last week with four today. Here is the full recap and graph. Here are the turning points of the game: The first ...
The Yankees winning streak ended at 10 games last night, but the Yankees have still won 20 out of their last 25 and the starting pitching has been the biggest reason. Literally every one of them has been great lately and last night they reached a landmark that they haven't reached since 1981 - every starter ...
