Yankees Get Their Guy in Andrew Miller

#457071198 / gettyimages.com It seems as though the Yankees have made a concerted effort to ditch the label of “offense only” team in their efforts to improve pitching recently.  This rings particularly true in their efforts to solidify the bullpen.  Rafael Soriano’s 35 million dollar deal was not smart, nor frugal.  They have spent similar money today on LHP Andrew...

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 is honest...

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...

MLB Game Picks - Saturday: September 13, 2014

The picks had their second straight good night. They are 25-5 in the last two days. But as good as that sounds, the Game of the Day feature has been wrong three days in a row. Yesterday, I had no idea whatsoever that Nathan Karns was capable of shutting down the Blue Jays on two hits. Seriously!?Other incorrect picks from yesterday included the first game loss of the Yankees. They...

Walk-off victory in 11 moves Orioles closer to AL East crown

  Down 1-0, the Baltimore Orioles loaded the bases against the New York Yankees for the third time in four innings.

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 the same way...

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't hold back. What...

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. East, giving hope to the two teams chasing them, just before they have to face those two teams in head to head match-ups. They also face going 1-5 over their last six games unless they win tonight.Over the course...

Yankees: 10 facts you are going to hate

Here are 10 facts about the New York Yankees that are not pretty, but with the way they are playing what do you expect.

April May, but June Ju-LIES... The Yanks are four games behind last year's pace

Those who forget the past...Maybe we should start calling them "the Even Empire," as in "breaking even." They win a game, then they torture one.Exiting the month of May - which traditionally was cruel to Yankee powerhouses of the early 2000s - here is what I know:1. The AL East is a putrid cesspool of antique collections of mediocrity - plus a young one, Tampa Bay. Unless the Blue...

As we ponder the trade market's lush garden of pitching, let us also think about the pound of flesh we will surrender

Lately, the Yankiverse seems to have settled on two bedrock conclusions:1. The 2014 team, as currently structured, couldn't bring home herpes from a trip to Buffalo.2. To fulfill the team's prime objective - having anyone watching YES in August - Brian Cashman must trade for a starting pitcher.It's pointless to speculate the identify of that lucky fellow. But we all know his resume...

Rickie Weeks doubled just inside the first base line with one out before going to third on a wild pitch by reliever Adam Warren (1-2). Reynolds, who briefly...

This was the best weather day in about 4 decades and I, happily, spent it at the track listening to John and Suzyn and drinking Juleps.I was glad to see the home run outbursts from McCann, Sori, and the major dingers by Beltran and Johnson.  Almost immediately after Johnson hit his into the black, a comment was relayed to us about "Tex's plans to return in Florida, around April...

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.

Optimism alert (I will disavow this later): The Yankees have too much pitching, pitching, pitching

In recent years, whenever the Yankees crow about their abundance of pitchers, we are soon treated to a start by Wally Whitehurst. There's something about having six starters that sends Scranton-Wilkes Barre to Defcon 1, and causes everybody's hammy to snap like a garter belt. So what should we make of the current Yankee avalanche of hope: Eight starters? Eight.Yes, eight. Wontotheeforfivesicksseve...
