What did I learn watching the New York Yankees over Labor Day Weekend?
1 – Robertson to Soriano combo are still consistently solid as set-up and closer.
2 – According to the NY Post, A-rod should be back today; ESPN reported that Southpaw Andy Pettitte threw a 35-pitch bullpen over the weekend and is on track to return shortly...
As a September to remember begins to unfold before us in Major League Baseball, the Yankees find themselves in an interesting position.

Derek Jeter (L) and the Yankees find themselves struggling as the division lead has disappeared.
A 10 game lead in the American League East. The wild card not even a thought. A very comfortable cushion.
That’s what the New York Yankees had back on July 18. It’s all gone now. The Yankees have gone just 19-25 in their last 44 games, and have lost seven of their last 10. The...
New York Yankees 6 — Tampa Bay Rays 4
After losing sole possession of 1st in the AL East, the Yankees take it back with tonight’s 6-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
Like many starters recently, Hiroki Kuroda struggled to hold onto leads in tonight’s start. In 6 innings, Kuroda gave up 2 leads that he received. After having a 3-1 lead in the 4th inning, a 2-run triple by...
For weeks, manager Joe Girardi talked about how well Russell Martin was hitting the ball only to be foiled by the misfortune of hitting it at the opposing team's fielders. Wednesday, Martin kept the ball away from the Tampa Bay Rays. Girardi inserted Martin in the No. 5 hole against lefty Matt Moore, hoping to see some of those good swings manifest into big hits for the struggling...
The New York Yankees have held a team meeting one day after losing sole possession of first place in the AL East.
The session took place prior to Wednesday night's game at Tampa Bay.

New York went ahead with help from a key Tampa Bay error, Russell Martin homered and had three RBIs, and the Yankees regained sole possession of first-place in the AL East with a 6-4 win over the Rays on Wednesday night.
Eliot Johnson's errant throw to home plate that led to two runs in the seventh inning helped New York win for just the fifth time in 15 games.
New York sat...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The “master plan,” said Alex Rodriguez, is back “in order." A pre-game team meeting, a hard-fought win and an aggressive style of offense apparently did wonders for the New York Yankees on Wednesday, as they salvaged the final game of a three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-4 at Tropicana Field and retook sole possession of first place...
Last night, New York Yankees’ all-world second baseman, Robinson Cano, ranged to his left on a Chris Gimenez ground ball in the eighth inning, but stepped awkwardly and failed to snare it. On the play, the eventual winning run scored, and Tampa cut the Yankee lead to one game.
Today around noon, I came across an article by John Harper, longtime columnist for the New York Daily...
