Found September 28, 2012 on Bronx Pinstripes:

The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound tonight against the Blue Jays in game two of a four game set in Toronto. In his last start against the Athletics in the Bronx, Kuroda lasted 5.2 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out five in a losing effort. Coming into tonight, the Yanks are holding on to a one game lead atop the AL East after getting shutout last night 6-0.

Alex Rodriguez returned to the lineup last night as the DH, but will instead be back at the hot corner tonight.

Nova May Have Pitched Himself Off The Postseason Roster

From Wallace Matthews:Last October, when the New York Yankees needed one more win to extend their season another round, they asked Ivan Nova to get it. This October, they may not even invite him along for the ride. Thursday night, facing yet another golden opportunity to create some separation between themselves and the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees turned to Nova. And...

Kuroda guts out needed win for Yanks

Hiroki Kuroda's struggles continued on Friday, though unlike teammate Ivan Nova the night before, the veteran right hander was able to grind his way to a victory. Kuroda allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings, allowing 10 hits and two walks while striking out four batters. He gave up five hits -- including three doubles -- and issued a walk during the first two innings, but...

T Minus 6: Yanks Lose, O's Idle

Last night Ivan Nova pitched himself out of the postseason rotation. That is, if there IS a postseason rotation.  The division lead is now down to just 1 game with 6 left to play.It was Nova's second bad start in a row after the good start he had when he returned from the disabled list. After the game Nova was asked what he thinks he needs to do to fix things. His response...

T Minus 7: Yanks Win, O's Win

A few weeks ago there was plenty of worry and angst about CC Sabathia. The Yankees ace wasn't pitching like an ace and, if he didn't start to soon, bad things were going to happen to the team if and when it made the playoffs. Well, now Sabathia has had two straight ace-like starts, the latest coming yesterday against the Twins, and things are starting  to look good again...

Girardi’s decisions questionable

The Yankees have been in an absolute dogfight over the past month or so, as Baltimore has constantly been on their heels. Currently, New York holds a half game lead, and the Orioles are leading 4-3 against the feeble and useless Red Sox. As the Yankees fight to maintain their grip on the AL East, one thing has caught my eye recently: Joe Girardi’s managerial decisions have sometimes...

Doing the analysis: Right now, a one-game playoff would fall on Phil Hughes' shoulders

OK, get out your slide-rules, because this is technical stuff, or as the Yankiverse likes to view it: thoughtful speculation.If the election were held today - that is, we face Baltimore next Thursday in a Division playoff - we could face Chris Tillman, coming off his legendary, one-hit masterpiece over Pawtucket. Hard to say, because Buck hasn't yet announced Sunday'...

Yankees 11, Blue Jays 4

TORONTO -- If the New York Yankees were feeling any pressure with a miniscule lead atop the AL East Division, they certainly weren't showing it. Yankees catcher Russell Martin led the way with his 20th homer of the season, a three-run shot in the sixth, and scored twice as New York (91-66) took care of the Toronto Blue Jays 11-4 before a crowd of 25,785 at Rogers Centre on...

Blue Jays 6, Yankees 0

Blue Jays 6, Yankees 0. Stands for Hometown lead. With AP Photos. Brandon Morrow used variety, not velocity, to beat the New York Yankees.

What will the NYY starting rotation look like once the playoffs begin?

Last year in the playoffs, Ivan Nova was asked to his job in game 5 of the ALDS against the Detroit Tigers and he couldn't get the job done in the biggest game of his major league career. There is now way this guy should be in the starting rotation or on the postseason roster. Period. He has been that awful this season and he showed last night why he doesn't in playoff...
