Yankees bullpen has rare bad night at worst time vs. Red Sox

  Dellin Betances and the Yankees' relievers couldn't see the scoreboard from the bullpen in right-center field, so they had no idea a playoff berth was only a few clean innings away. Giving up the lead still hurt, though. Betances allowed up a tying homer and Andrew Bailey yielded the go-ahead hit as New York wasted a chance to secure an AL wild-card spot Wednesday night, losing...

Yankee formula for the One Game Playoff: Avoid the Railriders bullpen

This we know: No lead is safe. No game is salted away, under control, put to rest, in the can, nada - as long as a Yankee pitcher has an out to record. If our starter cannot go a solid seven, then we must ask Dellin Betances to pitch two innings, and pray it's the good Dellin, not the one who walks the bases loaded. Then, in the ninth, after all the withering Yankee swings...

Well, it happened, just as we feared.Saturday, the Yankees signed shoulder-weary RHP Andrew Bailey for $2.5 million, and Sunday they re-upped with the grinder, Brett Gardner, for four years - miniature bursts of spending by a franchise brain trust that spent the last month rattling a cup and begging for nickels.
