It's been two solid starts since the Anaheim Armaggedon, when Dennis Weaver checked out, and he butchered the lead. The Yankiverse brooded, talked about sending him to the Thruway team, the baseball version of how Syria treats dissidents. He crushed Detroit, and last night figured out the Mets. No Yankee has surfed the roller coaster as much as Hughes. There's no reason to think he wouldn't give up six home runs against the Morningwood School for Wayward Girls. But hell, we gotta remind ourselves, he's only 26. He's younger than David Robertson.The trouble with Hughes is our expectations: When he get clobbered, it's probably the most frustrating Yankee experience, (aside from watching the heart of the order leave the bases loaded.) We've watched this guy for seven years. We've seen him pitch in the All-Star game. We've seen him become the Bridge to Mariano. And we've seen him miss half a season with a dead arm. His nickname should be "WTF...

Nick Swisher sings 'Call Me Maybe'

Nick Swisher was coerced into covering Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me Maybe”. Pretty much every sports team has covered this song. This should have stopped when the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders did their rendition of the song which was filled with hot chicks and was done professionally. UNC’s Women’s Lacrosse team did a decent cover with some hot chicks. These need to...

Update On Pettitte's Hand

From Chad Jennings:Andy Pettitte had his left hand wrapped after today’s game, but he said he felt fortunate. He was fortunate to get out of the sixth inning, and fortunate to leave with no real concern about making his next start. “It’s swollen, and as soon as the swelling gets out, it’ll be fine,” Pettitte said. “It swelled up, got me up high on the hand, toward...

Yankees send Tex message to NY rivals

Saturday evening in New York was supposed to be about a horse, a dream and sports history. Eighteen miles east of Belmont Park and a short drive over the Throgs Neck Bridge away, it was a 32-year-old who grew up just a few minutes from Pimlico who stole the show instead. While I'll Have Another didn't race in the 111th Belmont Stakes, the war horse of Saturday evening was...

Q&A with Yankees 21st Round Pick Jimmy Reed

The Yankees selected left-handed pitcher Jimmy Reed in the 21st round out of the University of Maryland. He sat down with us for a Q&A session to talk about being drafted by the Yankees, who he would compare his game to at the big league level, if he's looking to sign quickly, and a whole lot more.

Podcast Episode 10: Interleague Swan Song

After this season, interleague play as we know it probably will cease to exist. The 6-game season series between the Yankees and the Mets should be a thing of the past, and there should be no more large chunks of time spent playing teams in the other league. The Yankees just swept the first 3 games of the 2012 Subway Series and now enter into that large chunk of time playing the...

Report: Jorge Soler Could Sign a Deal By Monday

From the NYPost:According to an industry source, free agent outfielder Jorge Soler is expected to agree on a four-year deal before tomorrow. The Yankees and Cubs have expressed strong interest in the 20-year-old, who some scouts believe is a better player than fellow Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, 26, who signed with the Athletics. The Yankees don’t have Nick Swisher’s...

Yankees-Braves Preview

Three weeks ago, the New York Yankees were at the bottom of the AL East following their worst stretch of the season. The club now has a chance to move back to the top of the standings. The Yankees go for a fourth consecutive victory Monday night while the host Atlanta Braves try to start a new surge after their longest winning streak of the season was snapped. Since dropping six...

Hiroki Kuroda and Alex Rodriguez team up on a routine 1 to 5 fly out. For all his diminished skills, Alfonso Soriano hasn’t lost his pop

Yankees rough up Santana, Mets

NEW YORK -- Only a few innings in, the question for Johan Santana became not how many hits he would give up, but how many home runs. The buzz from Santana throwing the first no-hitter in New York Mets history last Friday ended with a thud Friday night in the Subway Series opener at Yankee Stadium. The New York Yankees slammed him back to reality in a 9-1 win as Robinson Cano...

Subway Series Take II: Mets Seek To Even Score V. Yanks: Mets Lineup Vs. Yankees - June 9, 2012

  The Mets were taken down a peg last night by the Yankees in an embarrassing performance by Johan Santana and his mates. Tonight the Mets look for revenge as Dillion Gee opposes Phil Hughes. Once again Lucas Duda will DH and Captain Kirk will patrol RF, as the injured Omar Quintanilla will start at SS. Last night's game isn't as cataclysmic as the sports papers and...
