Cesar Cabral Designated After Last Night’s Debacle

The Yankees looked like they were on the way to another win early on. Hiroki Kuroda pitched well, but once turned over to the bullpen things got ugly. Especially for left handed reliever Cesar Cabral. Cabral could not find the strike zone or record an out to save his life. He ended up hitting 3 batters and was ejected from the game just as manager Joe Girardi was about to pull him...

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...

Kuroda The Victim In Yankees First RISP Fail Of The Season

Though the starting pitching was better last night it wasn't perfect. Too bad, because it needed to be perfect in order for the Yankees to win.  It wasn't perfect and, as a result, the Yankees remain winless so far in this young season.This young season reminds me of a few years ago when there was a huge problem regarding runners in scoring position (RISP). Last night&...
