Yankees still chasing home-field edge after Game 1 loss to O's

  Yankees starter Ivan Nova allowed five runs in another shaky outing and New York failed to wrap up home field for the AL wild-card game, losing 9-2 to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday in the opener of a split-doubleheader. New York (87-73) can still ensure Tuesday's one-game playoff takes place at Yankee Stadium with a win in the second game against the Orioles or a loss by Houston...

Parade of Lefties Continues To Frustrate Yankees

The Yankees have faced four left-handed starting pitchers in the last five games. The results have been mixed and frustrating all around. The frustration continued last night, as Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez held them to one run over six innings, while Ivan Nova teased fans for six innings before turning into his usual inconsistent self. One bright spot last night was the...

Ivan Nova moves to the bullpen

Tommy John surgery is a devastating procedure. Not only does it sideline the injured player for upwards of a season, but also that player is almost never fully up to speed when they return to a big league field. Pitchers often don’t regain their control until months after they’ve been activated from the disabled list. Some can thrive the moment they get back on the mound. Some...

Inconsistent Nova Continues To Frustrate Yankees Fans With Latest Loss

Meet the new Nova. Same as the old Nova.

I have sketchy recollections of the old Ivan "Super" Nova - the Nova of Christmas past. I can picture him standing out there - those lips, those eyes, aye carummmmbah! - in hi-def, 3-D glare. What I can't remember is whether we could ever count on him.Before his TJ time-out, Nova always showed potential, always stood on the verge, always prepared to break out - except...

Expecting Ivan Nova to boost Yankees’ rotation begs disappointment

What New York Yankees’ right-hander Ivan Nova has accomplished – returning from Tommy John surgery after 14 months away from the game – is undeniably commendable. It takes hard work and determination to rehab from this surgery despite its commonplace. But, it is not fair and completely disillusioned to expect Nova to be anything more than a back-of-the-rotation starter. He’s...
