Found April 05, 2013 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
PLAYERS: Melky Mesa
TEAMS: New York Yankees
The line on Melky Bradley Jr. was always that he fans too much. Last night, the Mesa Melkman tallied five (5) Ks. That's beyond the Golden Sombrero. That's October in New York. That's King Kong Kingman.  Moreover, the good Quakers of Scranton waited all year for their Traveling Wilkes Barres to exit the New York State Thruway (they'd lost their punch ticket and didn't want to pay full fare) and return to Moosic. Last night, the team lost in 10 to the defending Governor's Cup champion Pawtucket Pawsocks. The Railrider bats were probably going through Sbarro withdrawal, no longer accessing the Batavia-to-Albany rest stop cuisine. Our pitching held up: Vidal Sassoon Nuno - winner of the 2013 Most Exciting Rookie in Yankee Spring Training Award - pitched almost five innings and gave up 2 runs. The Thruway already misses him. But five strikeouts in five at bats, each with at least one runner on base - wow.Listen: It's a long season, and Melky Mesa certainly ha...

John's home run call: "The Bronx is Vernon... Wells Rings the Bells"

For the record, "Hunk-a-hunk-a Vernon love" would have been better. 

Can the Yankees 1-3 start be attributed to Derek Jeter taking up a roster spot? New York needs a youth movement.

Derek Jeter has been an important part of the New York Yankees organization for the last 18 seasons. He could be one of those players who doesn’t know when it is time to get out. Jeter has yet to play a game in the 2013 season and it is yet to be determined when he will be able to play. Now reports coming out of New York have Yankees manager Joe Girardi saying Jeter needs a mini...

Phil Hughes will make his first start of the season today, as the Yankees will take on the Tigers from Comerica Park in Detroit. Hughes was originally going to start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre today, but the Yankees need arms – David Phelps will become the long-man out of the pen. Manager Joe Girardi will go with the same lineup as yesterday, except Vernon Wells will start...

Mariano Rivera returns, notches save

Andy Pettitte pitched the Yankees to their first win of the season and Mariano Rivera made a successful return to the mound in New York's 4-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night.

Lyle Overbay Calls Beating Red Sox ‘More Satisfying for Me Than Anything Else’ As Yankees Win

Lyle Overbay was a simple cut at the end of Red Sox’ spring training, an extra player as the team trimmed its ranks to 25 for Opening Day. That’s how the Red Sox probably see it, at least, but for Overbay, who was scooped up by the Yankees to start at first base, it was a little more than that. Overbay, 36, is trying to prove that he still can play at a big league level, and...

Adams Defines RailRiders MIssion of Starting Fresh

    BY  NICOLE SORCE Sports Media Watchdog.com MOOSIC, Pa. – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders opened their new PNC Field on Thursday evening with a disappointing extra-innings, 8-4 loss to the Pawtucket Red Sox. While the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate may not have had the freshest of fresh starts in the books, their outlook remains just as optimistic as before the first...

Yanks Old Guard Rise to the Challenge

The walls were starting to close in on the Yankees after the first two games of the season. An 0-3 start would not have doomed their season, but combined with all the injuries the club has sustained the feeling of a lost season in the making would only have grown stronger. It would be easy to say that last night Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera turned back the clock. It would also...

Make it a pair - Sox start 2-0 vs. Yankees

Admit it. It may be only two games, but this Red Sox team has been fun to watch. Whether it's the lack of Bobby V running the show, or the presence of Jackie Bradley Jr., the start to the 2013 baseball season has been very entertaining. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the Red Sox have beat up on the Yankees twice already, including tonight's 7-4 win in the Bronx....

The odd, the hurt & the older

photo credit: bleacherreport.com The analysts, experts, baseball fans, and maybe science itself don’t think the Yankees will be good this year. With the massacre of injuries and both an April starting lineup and starting rotation, with an average age of about only 33 years old (you’d think it would be higher, I know) and a couple of old guys, one would say the 27-time-Champion...
