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 ...

Series Preview: Yankees vs. Indians

"Whoa, did I just do that?"

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 ...
