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.

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. In case you're wondering what I'm referring to (but, I'm sure you'...

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...
