Yankees-nova-pitches
This Daily News back page is misleading for anyone who didn't see last night's Yankee game. Ivan Nova pitched 7 scoreless innings en route to the Yankees 3-0 win over the Braves, but his bat had nothing to do with it.Nova got his first Major League hit, a single that might have been a double had a position player hit it. But Nova made it only to first base and was left stranded when the next batter, Derek Jeter, failed to get on base.So Nova was a hit on the mound last night and, as a result, the Yankees are now in a first place tie with Tampa Bay. Remarkable, considering that they are still not hitting well with runners in scoring position (1-8 last night), or with the bases loaded (11 LOB last night). They are also still 0-12 in games they don't homer in. Unacceptable.First place is nice, especially when you're there when the regular season ends. But going into the postseason with numbers similar to the ones above will make for yet another first-round exit. It'...

Painting the Black: Going Backward to Move Forward by R.J. Anderson

Jay-Z once said, “Loiterers should be arrested.” Does Ivan Nova feel the same way?

ESPN’s Jorge Arangure Jr. detailed Nova’s upbringing earlier this season and concluded that the pitcher’s success is miraculous...

Week 10: Two-Start Pitchers, Start 'Em or Sit' Em?

Source: Jeff Gross/Getty Images North America) With each team playing just six games this week, there are only 30 two-start pitcher options this week.  Eleven of those 30 are owned in 100% of leagues.  Eight more are owned in less than 1% of ten team leagues and are unusable.  That leaves just eleven guys that fantasy owners have to make decisions on this week.  Below is a start...

Not-So-Rapid Reaction: Yankees 3, Braves 0

As much as their offense has begun to click, the Yankees’ resurgence has been centered around a string of great performances by their much-maligned starting rotation. Pitchers such as Phil Hughes, Ivan Nova and Hiroki Kuroda had shown flashes of brilliance in earlier starts, but in the last couple of weeks, they’ve all put it together.
