Yankees Sabathia vs. Rangers Holland

Rangers vs. Yankees - 2010 ALCS - Yankee Stadium The New York Yankees didn’t get to go for the sweep up in Boston, as it hasn’t stopped raining here in the Northeast since late Saturday night. So, the team heads to Texas to face the red-hot Rangers in a three-game set that promises to be a dogfight. These are two of the best teams in the American League and it is a must-watch...

How Many Games Will the Red Sox Win During Their Seven-Game Road Trip?

The Red Sox were rained out on Sunday, and they may have caught a break as a result. The team avoided facing CC Sabathia and the Yankees and is now able to slot Daniel Bard into the bullpen after skipping his spot in the rotation due to a combination of an off-day and the rainout. After facing one of the toughest stretches in their schedule all season long, the Red Sox will now also...

Hamilton powering up his value to Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas On a night when a sluggish Rangers offense was made to look even more drowsy by Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia, Josh Hamilton remained the primary power source for the Rangers offense. Hamilton sent a Sabathia pitch 422 feet into the seats overlooking the Rangers bullpen in the sixth inning of a 7-4 loss. It was Hamilton's eighth home run in 17 games this season...

Holland can’t hang with Sabathia

Derek Holland just didn’t have it tonight.  Maybe he was unnerved watching Pudge Rodriguez pitch from home to 2nd for the first pitch of the game.  Or maybe he just didn’t have it. Holland gave up two runs on three hits in the 1st inning.  Then he calmed down a little for the next few innings.  It seemed probable that the offense could catch up.  Until the 5th, when Holland...

Garcia to be skipped?

From George A. King III: Joe Girardi has his rotation set through Friday night against the Tigers at Yankee Stadium. What the Yankees manager doesn’t have — at least publicly — is a starter for Saturday. Since last night’s game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park was washed out, CC Sabathia starts tonight against the Rangers instead of working last night. Ivan Nova...

Not-So-Rapid Reaction: Rangers 2, Yankees 0

On Monday night, excellent lefties CC Sabathia and Derek Holland combined to allow 11 runs. With struggling right-handers Hiroki Kuroda and Yu Darvish set to do battle last night, I was fully expecting a display of offensive fireworks, one that would thoroughly disappoint an entire nation that had called in sick from work just to see this game. Oops. When I predicted yesterday that...

Not-So-Rapid Reaction: Yankees 7, Rangers 4

Rain on Sunday night denied the Yankees an opportunity to send Boston off the deep end, but it also gave them an extra day off since last Thursday. With 13-3 Texas on the other end, they could definitely use it. Last night was billed as a duel of top lefties CC Sabathia and Derek Holland, but when two offensive juggernauts meet at The Ballpark in Arlington, pitching duels are going...
