MEET THE MESS

Lohan seen hanging with former Yanks

The former child star's stock has dropped off greatly over the last few years, so much so that she's now being seen out with Yankees role players from the 1990s. 

Thoughts On Hughes's Good Start & The Postseason Rotation

Has Phil Hughes finally turned the corner? He seems to have, although there have been times in the past when when that corner was in the rear view mirror. His last couple of starts have been encouraging and last night's was even more so. I loved the fact that he gave the Yankees 7 strong innings and helped them keep the lead in a close 2-1 game. He made one mistake, a home run...

Feeling Helpless On A Yankees Off-Day

There were no positives in yesterday's series finale between the Blue Jays and Yankees. None at all. Everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong: CC Sabathia was ineffective, the defense made 3 errors, the lineup was 3-17 with RISP, and the bullpen stunk.If it were earlier in the season it would be easy, as a fan, to follow that well-worn player mantra about turning the...

The bad cloud hovering over the 2012 Yankees won’t blow away

Maybe it’s me. Maybe it’s just that loss to Toronto last night. For my money, it was the worst loss of the year. Worst loss since the 2011 playoffs. Worst loss I can remember. A crushing, brutal, unbelievably awful and sincerely smelly loss. A defeat. For nine innings, it was a sure win. Then, the worst loss since the Crusades. They say cowards die a thousand deaths. Well, then...

Yankees' slump raises Girardi's ire

Joe Girardi rarely shows anger over his team's play during his postgame press conferences. However, with the Yankees about to begin a key 10-game stretch against Baltimore and Tampa Bay -- the two teams directly behind the Yankees and closing in the AL East -- the New York manager clearly was agitated after the Bombers bombed in all facets in an 8-5 loss Wednesday against the...

Mark Teixeira Out With Calf Injury

Rafael Soriano giving up three hits and three runs turned out to be the least of the New York Yankees’ worries following last night’s let down loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.  Yankees All-Star first baseman, Mark Teixeira, suffered what Ian Begley of ESPN New York  reported to be a Grade 1 calf strain.  Teixeira apparently experienced tightness in his left calf subsequent to...

Yankees 2, Blue Jays 1

NEW YORK -- They needed this type of outing from Phil Hughes. The New York Yankees also needed Rafael Soriano to come right back after his blown save Monday, and they got just the performance they needed from both players in a 2-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night. Hughes threw seven innings of one-run ball, allowing Adeiny Hechavarria's first major-league home...

Joe DiMaggio pitching caffeine once again

First, there was that pick-me-up beverage in a can — Jolt.  Now, Arizona Beverages is jumping into the energy drink business with their own caffeine-based drink called "Joltin' Joe" in honor of the all-time baseball great Joe DiMaggio. The ice tea company is preparing to launch the "lightly carbonated espresso drink" in the New York area featuring a picture...

Green Lights Going Wrong, Take 1

Last night, the Yankees played the Blue Jays, and in the fourth inning, Phil Hughes faced Yorvit Torrealba. Odds are you weren’t watching that game, and even if you were watching that game, odds are you weren’t paying particularly close attention to Phil Hughes facing Yorvit Torrealba in the top of the fourth. Anyhow, Hughes fell behind in the count 3-and-0 with three straight...

Brian Cashman on Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon suspensions: ‘Not surprised’

Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon have several things in common. For starters, both were born in the Dominican Republic. Both also played for the Yankees, and both have been suspended by the MLB for 50 games for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Their former GM, Brian Cashman, spoke candidly about their suspensions on Tuesday. “Unfortunately, not surprised,” the...
