On this day in Yankees history – 1947

Front page story, New York Times, April 28th, 1947April 27, 1990 I came into this world, but 43 years earlier was a slightly more historic day. April 27, 1947, the Yankees host Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium to honor the ailing Sultan of Swat, who was nearing the end of his life because of throat cancer. The New York Times reported around 58,339 fans showed up to honor Ruth. The...

Still A Yankees City, Momentum, & Mustaches – The Bronx Pinstripes Show #11

Brett Gardner has started a mustache trend in the clubhouse, and it seems to be working. Since sweeping the Rays last weekend the Yanks have won 5 of 7, including series wins over the Tigers and Mets. There is a lot of good news — Tanaka had 2 lights-out starts, Teixeira is hitting for power again, and the Betances/Miller combination is LETHAL. Michael Pineda’s stuff is nasty...

Yankees and Mets have incredibly lame Twitter fight

The New York Yankees and New York Mets are rivals in the sense that both teams represent the same city. Since one is in the American League and one in the National League, they hardly ever meet on the field. That’s why social media is sometimes needed to spice things up. Although, in this case...Read More

Subway Series Game 3: A-Rod hits #659, Yankees win, mayhem ensues

How are you feeling, Squawker Jon? Are you sore like Mr. Met, now that your team has lost two out of three to the Yankees? Did you forget how many outs there were, like Met Eric Campbell did tonight? Boy, that was a sloppy, messy game. Bad pitching, lots of bad plays. Not exactly one for the highlight reels. But ultimately, the Yankees won, and they (and I) have the bragging rights...

A fan took out a full-page ad in the Sunday New York Daily News to write an open letter to MLB commissioner Rob Manfred arguing that Alex Rodriguez’s home run records should come with an asterisk.

Vol 3: AL East Weekly Wrap-Up

Mark Teixeira had a monster week for the Yankees as he hit 5 HR and driving in 12. The New York Yankees are rolling. Until yesterday, they had only lost once all week and are the best overall team of the week as they’re getting offense, pitching, and defense. The AL East is all bunched up and that shouldn’t be expected to change at all throughout the year. Fluctuations, ups...

Today in Tribe History: April 26, 1974

1974 – Cleveland and New York agree on a deal that sends young first baseman and former first overall pick of the 1970 draft, Chris Chambliss, and two others to the Yankees for four players.

New York Yankees: Offensive production generating wins

The New York Yankees have risen to the occasion. After starting the year 3-6, they have won 7 of their last 9 games. In those eight wins they have beaten quality opponents, such as the Detroit Tigers and their cross city rival, the New York Mets. The Mets have the best record in the Major League Baseball and have had an impressive start to their season; however, the Yankees might...

Yankees game 19: Harvey dominates to split series

New York Mets 8 – New York Yankees 2 Matt Harvey stepped into enemy territory and stepped up his game. For the fans that complained about it, the Mets’ Lucas Duda made quick use of the hitter’s advantage in right field. In the first inning, the Mets first baseman would hit a two-out solo home run into right field off of CC Sabathia to put the Mets ahead early. Through the first...

Mets Inching Closer to Yankees in Local Television Ratings

For the better part of the past quarter century, the New York Yankees have controlled the nation’s largest media market. This is obviously due to the team winning five World Series titles since 1996. It also doesn’t hurt that the New York Mets have had only nine winning seasons during that span. You have to go back to the Mets run to the title in 1986 for the last time the stepsister...

Mets almost even with Yankees in viewership

It’s been a while since the Mets have been good. Fans have been starved for a winner and have had to endure years of bad teams. But that has changed thus far this season with the Mets riding an 11 game winning streak going into Friday’s action against their cross-town rivals, the Yankees. During the winning streak, the Mets fans have responded by watching the games on SNY in...

An Old (But Topical) Conversation with Andruw Jones

This interview was conducted in September 2012, but that doesn’t matter. The topic was his career, and Andruw Jones was weeks away from his final game. Contextually, nothing has changed in the two-plus years that these words went unpublished. The longtime Atlanta Brave hit 434 home runs, but his legacy is defense. He won 10 straight […]

Yankee Role Players Playing The Biggest Role Early

Heading into the 2015 season, the New York Yankees were almost written off in the American League East. The constant injury concerns and aged roster had the biggest impact on their preseason projections. To beat the odds, players like Jacoby Ellsbury, Masahiro Tanaka, and Brian McCann were tasked with stepping up their game to fills the holes elsewhere in the lineup/rotation....

The historical significance of a potential A-Rod resurgence

The Hunt for Alex Rodriguez began early in spring training, and the feel one got from most of the reporting was almost akin to that of a death watch. Expectations were, to put it mildly, quite low, and the potential for theater was very high; the perfect combination for a media firestorm. Well, something very […]

Bernie to retire Friday; what's keeping Beltran?

The battle for ink in NYC is so bleak that the Yankees are now staging rank publicity stunts to capture attention. What's next? Hal Steinbrenner wearing dresses? Suzyn dating Kanye? Those back page headlines don't write themselves. Friday, Bernie Williams will step to the podium and announce his retirement. Not from music. From baseball. It's a joke, get it? Bernie has never officially...

Chris Young Perfect As Yankees Even Series With Detroit

How about that Chris Young? The Yankees fourth outfielder went 3-for-3 with a HR and two walks on Tuesday evening, and played solid defense in RF in place of Carlos Beltran. With the home run, Young entered a three way tie on the team, even though he is only 10th in ABs. He was instrumental in the Yankees evening the series with Detroit at one game apiece, and was a solid backup...

New York Yankees – Prospect Alert

Luis Severino – RHP Severino is touted as the New York Yankees “Top Prospect” and currently ranks as the 24th Prospect in Baseball. The Yanks snatched up Severino off of the International Market, laying down a cool $225,000. Severino’s hovers a fastball within the mid-90s, but can pump up to 99 MPH when he lets loose. […]

The Best The Yankees Can Do

I am still stuck using an I-pad, so the visual I had in mind will have to remain a mystery.Yesterday, in Detroit, CC pitched as well as he will pitch all year, against the best hitting team in baseball.The sad truth is that the real offense showed up for the Yankees, as well.  Tino's solo HR looked like an accident.  No one, including Tino, thought he hit it out.  It was as if...

A-Rod exceeding expectations, eluding karmic justice

Alex Rodriguez can just never get it right. He was supposed to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time, but is now a disgraced PED user and cheater whose achievements are all questionable, no matter how impressive they look on a list or spreadsheet. A-Rod could have been the face of baseball, a matinee idol admired by fans of all ages, but his ambition for the biggest...

Yankees encouraged by winless Sabathia

The New York Yankees have not won a game in which CC Sabathia has pitched this season, yet the team is probably as excited about three losses as they could be considering what Sabathia has done on the mound thus far.Of course, it is just three games and we cannot assume that Sabathia’s knee will hold up, but we also cannot ignore the underlying components of Sabathia’s work in...

Will Hal Steinbrenner now ignore the "pitching version of Yoan Moncada?"

Listen carefully around the owner's box in Yankee Stadium, and you'll wonder if a certain somebody hasn't hatched a box of Easter chicks. Everyone, you'll hear the cute little sounds, "Cheep, cheep, cheep..."It must be the squeaky shoes of Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner, the business-minded scion of a family that needs both sets of fingers to count its billions.

Yankees decline to name Miller closer and that’s OK

Despite the fact that all four of the New York Yankees save opportunities this season have gone to Andrew Miller, the club has yet to officially anoint him the closer. And there is nothing wrong with that.It goes a long way that Miller is completely uncaring about the role being bestowed upon him, plus the fact that he acknowledged that Dellin Betances had the more difficult task...
