New York’s Starting Rotation Will Lead the Yankees Back to the Playoffs

Can CC Sabathia regain his velocity? – Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement/USA Today Sports During the offseason, the Yankees main goal was to upgrade a porous offense that was ultimately their undoing in 2013. Yes, Robinson Cano left for Seattle, and Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the entire year, but New York acquired catcher Brian McCann, outfielders Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury...

Last Night Proves Triple Play Is Sabathia's Best Friend

It's hard to believe that CC Sabathia has been on the mound during the last three triple plays the New York Yankees have turned.  After the third one last night, my lately failing memory came to life and I remembered that Sabathia was pitching during the odd one that occurred last year. I'm sure you remember it:Yes, it was that one, on April 12, 2013, the one that was scored...

Yankees Turn 5-4-3 Triple Play vs. Rays

Your browser does not support iframes. On Thursday night during C.C. Sabathia’s first win of the season, the Yankees pulled off a 5-4-3 triple play. While this is a pretty rare feat, it was relatively easy to turn, as Sean Rodriguez hit the ball right to Kelly Johnson on third base. Last year’s 4-6-5-3-4 that the Yanks turned was much more impressive. [CBS Sports] The post...

Video: Yankees Turn Triple Play vs. Rays

If the double play is a pitchers’ best friend, then what does that make a triple play? CC Sabathia found out first hand in Thursday night’s game against the Rays when Shaun Rodriguez hit into a 5-4-3 triple play that killed a 1st and 2nd no one out rally for Tampa Bay.

WATCH: Yankees turn first triple play of 2014 MLB season

For a pitcher, there is no better gift than a triple play.  Two on, no out, big inning pending.  Then it all goes away thanks to tags, throws, and gloves.  Watch as the New York Yankees clean up the 2nd inning for ace C.C. Sabathia by going around the horn, Yangervis Solarte, to Brian Roberts, to Scott Sizemore, who made a nice scoop in the dirt.  That’s 5-4-3 if you’re scoring...

Yankees turn triple play on Tampa Bay

Yangervis Solarte helped bail CC Sabathia out of trouble in the 2nd inning of New York’s game against the Rays tonight, starting off a classic around-the-horn triple play. As it turns out, Sabathia is no stranger to triple plays while he’s on the mound: The Yankees have turned 3 triple plays since 2010. All 3 with CC Sabathia on the mound. Last one before that was 1969. — Sweeny...

C.C. Sabathia’s Latest Idea Could Eliminate Instant Replay

Think about it, no human umpires, just robot umpires? Oddly enough, the timing for this pitch by C.C. Sabathia comes at an uneasy (and slightly controversial) moment in baseball where the human element is being challenged by instant replay. I honestly wouldn’t put it past a sport like baseball to have an automated umpire of sorts (at least behind the plate for balls and strokes...

Daily Fantasy - Evan Longoria vs CC Sabathia

The Tampa Bay Rays are in the Bronx to play a 4 game set with the New York Yankees, and they will not have to face one of Masahiro Tanaka or Michael Pineda.  But tonight it's David Price vs CC Sabathia and that means the Rays bats could come alive!  Sabathia has faced the Rays 14 times in the past 3 seasons, more than any other team.  Over those starts, he is just 3 and 8...

Tanaka and Pineda are about to become THE NEXT BIG THING

It's already happened to me: A start by CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova or Hiroki Kuroda has become a yawner. What's the point? We know what will happen. CC will give up three, maybe four runs, and he will keep us in games, until he hits an iceberg in August, and needs a rest. Nova will throw well one day, then get bombed. Kuroda will be lights out, until Joe leaves him in too long...
