Game 7 Recap: Ivan goes Supernova

Excellent bullpens are fun. It’s always a good time to watch a parade of excellent relievers lay waste to opposing lineups. The problem is that excellent bullpens can’t be deployed every single day.

Yankees may put CC Sabathia in bullpen to start season

CC Sabathia may not have a spot in the starting rotation waiting for him. According to ESPN’s Andrew Marchand, Sabathia is in a battle with Ivan Nova for the fifth and final spot in the Yankees’ rotation, and the team isn’t afraid to relegate him to the bullpen if Nova outpitches him. “This is a hard decision,” said manager Joe Girardi. “CC has meant so much to this...

New York Yankees: Ivan Nova trade rumors

Despite their apparent need for a starting pitcher, the New York Yankees appear to be willing to part ways with righty Ivan Nova. But that doesn’t mean they’re willing to sell low on the 28-year-old.

The horror, Mr. Girardi. The horror. Nine ponderings about last night's Apocalypse Nova

No, Virginia, there is no Easter Bunny. Your little friends who claim otherwise have smoking banned animal laxatives again. They have been affected by the Disneyism of a Hakuna Mutata age.
