Yankees Positives Come Two Innings Too Late In Opening Day Loss To Astros

Look on the bright side. For seven innings, the Yankees looked pretty good. CC Sabathia was effective if not spectacular, Dellin Betances contributed a perfect inning of work and Vidal Nuno rewarded the Yankees decision to choose him for one of the final spots in the bullpen.The offense worked the count and scored two runs on five hits, including two by Mark Teixeira, who looked...

On the Internet: Hating the Yankees, Hating Ourselves

Last week one Josh Ostergaard got a book excerpt placed at, and it argues that we should hate the Yankees! Why? Because real estate developer Del Webb, who owned the team from the 40s to the 60s, built the Japanese-American internment camps. I'm not sure what that has to do with Dellin Betances, but it does reinforce my conviction that we should hate the Red Sox because...

Yankees Spring Training Game 28: Betances big in big spot

Toronto Blue Jays 3 — New York Yankees 1 Michael Pineda appears to have his final start in the fifth starting pitcher battle and he was able to minimize the damage he allowed. After an easygoing first inning, a common struggle haunted Pineda. In the second inning, Eduardo Nunez would commit a throwing error to let the first batter reach base. Adam Lind would hit a bloop single...

Could We See The Killer B’s in New York?

With Manny Banuelos recovering from Tommy John surgery and getting ready to throw again, the Yankees have another bullpen option in the form of the hard-throwing lefty. And then there's Dellin Betances who followed up a promising 2011 with a bust of a 2012. Some are saying there's a good chance 2013 will be his breakout season. Both will be arriving to camp to compete for...

Weird or what: On the same day, Scranton loses both "The Office" but Dellin Betances

Last night, Scranton lost it's biggest tourist attraction after Chien-Ming Wang.It was to Scranton as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is to Trenton. Much like most of the Yankee prospects who have moved through Moosic, it stayed there about three years too long. Nevertheless, like Alberto Gonzalez pitching in the ninth, you had to watch.So... you missed it, eh? You were...

Did reverse juju save Dellin Betances' career last night?

Yesterday, the tortured Voice of Reverse Juju - Alphonso - called out the Yankee farm system, contending that the only reason it has a top 10 list of prospects is that is has 10 players. The words stung like rubbing alcohol after a botched Gillette MACH 3 Turbo Razor shave. No one who read it could ever again drive through Scranton or Trenton without shuddering with despair.To...

The Killer B's: Bed, Bath and Betances

Two years ago, Yangeeks endlessly fantacized the farm system's "Killer B's:" Andrew Brackman, Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances - three stud pitchers destined for NYC.Unfortunately, the Brack never found a pitching motion worth using twice; he's now a Red. Banuelos is hurt; Team Cashman assures us he's not Tommy John, but he might have another lost...

Minors Wrap-Up: Betances Walks Seven in Loss

  AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees The way that Dellin Betances has pitched this season, he must truly be aiming to become the next “Wild Thing.” Betances showed no control again last night, allowing seven walks and throwing two wild pitches in just 4.2 innings. The rest of the line was decent enough – Betances gave up [...]
