Found April 15, 2012 on Dunson Checks In:
The Phil Hughes experiment was supposed to feature a plethora of happy moments. However, after getting rocked by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for six runs in three innings on Saturday afternoon, including a two-run home run in the second and a three-run homer in the fourth, the exalting Huuughes... chants from Yankees fans were replaced with an unmerciful chorus of boos.

Looking Like Andy's Targeting a Mid May Return

From Mark Hale:The way things looked for Andy Pettitte after yesterday’s minor league outing, it seemed possible he would need just two more starts before rejoining the Yankees. Pettitte’s return to the major league seemed imminent, meaning Phil Hughes might get just two more turns to solve his woes. Both Pettitte and Hughes, however, will be getting more time. Following...

New York Yankees: Wilson vs. Hughes

KURODA vs. SANTANA compared to WILSON vs. HUGHES: Photograph of Phil Hughes taken on April 29, 2008 at Yankee Stadium. 04:50, 1 May 2008 . . Mandalatv . . 1,272×954 (691 KB) (Photo credit: Wikipedia) If you looked at Kuroda and Santana’s career stats vs. the active hitters prior to yesterday’s game, the Yankee win was already a lock. Not taking anything away from Kuroda, but...

Mark Teixeira Needs To Adjust His Approach or His Career Could be Over

The Yankees have started the season 4-4 despite the fact they have been without the expected quality pitching of ace CC Sabathia (he of the new five year, $122 million extension), and without any production from middle of the order hitters Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira. Robbie will come around soon, but it is Teixeira’s lack of production which should be very worrisome to Yankee...

Where Does Derek Jeter’s Ascent Up the Hit Chart Take Him?

One of the early surprises of the season is the offensive output of Derek Jeter. Going into tonight’s matchup against Minnesota, Jeter is hitting a robust .366 with 2 HRs and 6 RBI. The slow bat that turned him into a below league average hitter the last couple of years has disappeared. I was ready to see him get his 3,000th hit and start the countdown of when his contract will...

Not-So-Rapid Reaction: Yankees 11, Angels 5

Some sites give you their immediate takes on just-completed games. I believe in taking a moment (or full night) to compose my thoughts. The New York Yankees last night won the rubber game of their first series with the Pujolsian Edition of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. None of the games were particularly great, nor is there much to extrapolate based on the performances we saw...

Podcast Episode 3: From The Bronx To Boston

This latest episode of the Lady At The Bat Podcast was recorded before the Yankees won the rubber game of their weekend series against the Angels last night. They start a three game series against the Twins tonight and travel to Boston this weekend for their first meeting of the season with the Red Sox. Mike Passeri of New York Yankees Update joins me on the podcast to talk Yankees...
