Mets Game Thread: Harvey Tested; Yankees Tie Game

It wasn’t a bunt, but Matt Harvey was tested – albeit unintentionally – in the bottom of the second when he pounced off the mound to throw out Brian McCann on a dribbler up the third base line.

In the first inning, Jacoby Ellsbury would have a rough start to a night in 38 degree weather with the hard-throwing Price as he took a pitch off the chest. You don’t see that everyday. Chris Young would follow with a single to put runners on first...

Yankees Sweep Past Rays, Shift Focus To Dominant Tigers

It says quite a bit about how they started the season if it took the New York Yankees a three game sweep to get back to .500 and out of the basement of the A.L. East. It’s still early, but it was great to see the Yankees--especially the offense--show some consistency in sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend.To be fair, the Rays are the one team in the division that has...

Amid Continuing Concerns, Yankees Enjoy Laugher Against Red Sox

On Sunday night the Yankees looked at all of us--the fans, the media and the casual observers--and said: “Beware the small sample size.” Sunday’s game was exactly what the team needed after they went 1-4 in their first five games and looked terrible in the process. In Sunday’s game, the Yankees batted around in the first inning, scoring seven runs, including three on home...

How Yankees tried to beat the over-shift last year.For the record: The disease of the 2014 Yankees was not pitching, fielding or charging too low for tickets.
