Tanaka dominates Blue Jays as Yankees win opener

Is Masahiro Tanaka the best pitcher on the planet? Those were the words CC Sabathia used to describe his teammate Tuesday afternoon, and after watching Tanaka handle the first-place Blue Jays later in the day, there’s no reason to argue otherwise. Tanaka became the majors’ first 11-game winner, allowing one run over six innings to lead the Yankees to a 3-1 win over Toronto...

Yankees: Brooms, Bronx and Blue Jays

New York Yankees (Photo credit: Keith Allison) The New York Yankees swept the Toronto Blue Jays right out of the Bronx. It was the best outcome that honestly, I didn’t think the Yankees had in them but they proved me wrong. Beating the AL East leading Blue Jays in three games cut the Yankees deficit to just a game and a half back to catching Toronto. And getting three wins at Yankee...

New Blog Post- Tanaka Wins Second “Second Start” as Yankees Start Tough AL East Stretch, by @CADBII

Ever since Masahiro Tanaka suffered his first loss to the Chicago Cubs last month, there has been a question, albeit a small one, about whether his early success was at least partially due to the league’s unfamiliarity with him.As Tanaka bounced back from that loss with stellar start after stellar start, the rave reviews continued, but we were waiting for that second “second...

The Vidal Nuno Era may be coming to an end

Think of it this way: The Yankees brought up a middling, middle-innings reliever from Scranton - Chase Whitley - and he's pitched far better than Nuno.If Nuno doesn't pitch well Saturday, why not roll the dice again?

Big brain scientists hail Yankee fans as most faithful of all: “If we look at the sensitivity of the demand to winning for Philadelphia or the New York Yankees, they are not even close. Yankee fans basically show up regardless;

"An analysis of Major League Baseball fans conducted by two marketing professors at Emory University, Michael Lewis and Manish Tripathi, concluded that fans of the Philadelphia Phillies are the most demanding in the study’s “win sensitivity” list. The fan base least likely to forget about its team during the dark times: The New York Yankees."

Yankees game 69: Number 11 helps Tanaka to 11

(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images) Toronto Blue Jays 1 — New York Yankees 3 Masahiro Tanaka continues to be one of the best pitchers in the game. In the first start for Masahiro Tanaka, he faced the Toronto Blue Jays. The first major league start for Tanaka started the worst way a pitcher could want it, a leadoff home run.

Where have you been all this time: Scientists on the verge of discovering juju

Get this: Big brains in quantum mechanics have finally figured out what we in the fan base call "Rizzutons," particles of eternal innocence and simplicity that are somehow transmitted from our couches into the TV set - and then, via cosmic wormholes, for hundreds or thousands of miles - to help Derek Jeter get a base hit.If you think it can't happen, well, Smartypants...

Come On Seattle, Support These Mariners!

I was fortunate enough to attend Derek Jeter’s final regular season game at Safeco last Thursday.  It’s a rare occasion to see a sure thing, first ballot, future hall of famer, live and in person.  And, while I could make a strong argument for Jeter as the greatest offensive shortstop of all time and enjoy the lively debate with Cal Ripken fans or the Rogers Hornsby diehards...
