Last night's walk-off win would have been exciting, had it mattered

I'm sorry, folks. Somewhere out there - or deep within our DNA - lurks the 9-year-old who is now just discovering Lawrence Peter Berra. But that was a half-century ago, and too many Lance McCullers and Ross Moschittos have floated down the Yankee river. They say that a win is a win is a win. That is not true. Last night, I wanted the Yankees to lose. I'm sorry.But losing...

Yankees Stand-Out Bullpen Falters at Wrong Time

The only successful thing the New York Yankees did this weekend was prevent themselves from watching the Baltimore Orioles celebrate clinching the A.L. East.The Yankees lost 3 out of 4 games and, unlike the story for most of the season, 2 of the losses were a direct result of the bullpen being unable to hold the paltry leads the offense was able to scratch out for them. The Yankees...

Yankees game 113: Five runs and outstanding pitching for the win

Detroit Tigers 1 — New York Yankees 5 The Yankees face another Cy Young pitcher but they outduel with great pitching and create a sizable lead. Tonight’s game had an inauspicious start for Yankees starter Chris Capuano. An error in the field by Derek Jeter would let lead off batter Rajai Davis to reach base. He would advance on a wild pitch and go to third on a ground out by...

Yankees Offense Saves Bullpen After Disastrous Performance

If Tuesday’s win wasn’t the ugliest win this season for the New York Yankees, it’s definitely in the competition. In his post-game interview on the YES Network, David Robertson said, "I feel like the luckiest guy in the world right now." Robertson gave up two ninth inning runs and still managed to get the save. It's easy to believe his fellow relievers felt...

Darkest before the dawn? In mere seconds yesterday, John Sterling bounced from inhuman despair to heavenly rapture

Contrary to news reports, the NY Yankees did not win yesterday: The Reds simply lost. In the ninth inning, the Evils were executing a classic choke moment - runner on a third, no outs, cleanup hitters up - and Mark Teixeira fanned. This prompted John Sterling to yelp, "Strike three, what else?"Yep, that's right. Two little words. Two sharpened knives. John couldn'...

Yankees Throw Away Game Against Blue Jays

The New York Yankees are in the process of undoing all the good work they accomplished in sweeping Toronto last week.  They are sinking themselves further into the A.L.

They also face going 1-5 over their last six games unless they win tonight.Over the course...

He was very successful in his deceptive pitches He went 6.0 innings on 106 pitches...

The 2014 Yankees Rotation: The "Five A's" Look Ready To Go

The "Five A's."  I'll have to come up with a better name eventually but, right now that's the best I can do.  It's certainly better than the "Quintuple As," which is what I came up with first, and then realized it probably reminds everyone of quadruple A players.

Why is it that whenever I hear the phrase "possible catastrophic event," I think not of Flight 370 but of the Yankee pitching rotation?

Lately, like all of you, I've been working to solve the mystery of Flight 370. (Right now, I'm thinking "self-replicating human clone spores;" that's all I'm allowed to say.) Of course, a few big-mouth know-it-alls still cling to the non-supernatural explanations. Pheh. If this isn't a Bond Super-villain, I haven't been watching TV for 50...
