Yankees: Team players do not pitch hurt

Ivan Nova (Photo credit: Keith Allison) As you already know, baseball is a team sport. The greatest teams are made up of players who keep their egos in check by setting aside personal desires, and living by the motto, whatever it takes to make the team better. This means putting the team first by simply asking one question every time you have to make a decision. What is in the best...

UCL Tear Spells Bad News For Nova

Elbow injuries are no laughing matter, and Ivan Nova would agree. After an MRI late last night, Nova has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his elbow. He said he felt a ‘pop’ after he threw his final pitch last night. The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tear is potentially a Tommy John surgery ligament. We’ve seen a lot of that going around this year, handfuls of young...

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. Alas, how weird would be the world if there was an Easter Bunny. There would probably be entire festivals devoted to the Insane Clown Posse. Wait....Sorry about the rambling. But Yankee baseball...

Reinforcements Already on the Way

(Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) For the second straight game the bullpen was taxed, plus you add in Ivan Nova leaving early with what is being reported as elbow soreness, then you have a perfect recipe for disaster.

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...

New York Yankees win early series match-up against Boston

Give me one second to celebrate this series win by the New York Yankees because you may not know this but my older brother is the black sheep/Red Sox fan of our family and he will be thoroughly disappointed that our first series match-up against the 2013 World Series Champions was a win for the New York Yankees and not for Boston. Poor boy. Ok, celebration goes on the back burner...

Ivan Nova Continues His Trend of Poor April Starts As Yankees Fall Back to .500

Ivan Nova has never had an April ERA below 5.00. That trend continued yesterday when he gave up seven runs in 3.2 innings, en route to a 14-5 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.Thank goodness for Kelly Johnson. Without his eighth inning solo home run the Yankees would have suffered a double digit defeat at the hands of the Orioles. Instead, they only lost by nine runs.That fact, plus...
