Today in Tribe History: October 4, 2007

The Cleveland Indians play their first postseason game since 2001, welcoming in the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the American League Division Series. They play the ungracious host, as a three-run first and a five-run fifth inning lead them to an easy 12-3 victory. Johnny Damon gave the Yankees the early advantage, hitting a leadoff home run off of Indians starter C.C. Sabathia...

Should CC Sabathia start the Wild Card game for Yankees?

Over the past three seasons, CC Sabathia has gone from being a perennial All-Star and Cy Young award contender to a cross your fingers and hope for the best fourth or fifth starter for the New York Yankees. Sabathia’s demise had been predicted for years. Six-foot, seven-inch pitchers whose girth only possibly stops short of 300 pounds are not supposed to be workhorses into their...

Yankees Win Final Game in the Series

The Red Sox had been a thorn in the side of the Yankees all series long, not allowing them the ability to clinch a wild card game by continuing to not allow them to win.  The Sox would try once again with Rich Hill on the mound vs. CC Sabathia for the Yankees.  Hill gave up a couple of runs early and with not much run support he ended up with his first loss for the season. The...

Red Sox Fail To Sweep Evil Empire, Fall, 4-1

(AP Photo)The Red Sox had a chance to further delay the post-season entry of The Bronx Embalmers but failed in a 4-1 loss on Thursday. Rich Hill's Cinderella slipper lost a heel—giving up an early HR that set the tone of the game. Boston pitchers gave up two more round-trippers, while the offense disappeared against previously crappy CC Sabathia. Mookie Betts was 2-4 with the sole RBI.

Yankees kick it old school as they win a spot in the postseason

It's funny. I've found this Yankee team very hard to watch this week. Until last night, when they finally clinched their Wild Card spot. Their shenanigans after the game made me very happy. Not only were they enjoying the champagne celebration for their postseason entry (and their 10,000th win, as it turn out!) but they even had the rookies (and Masahiro Tanaka) dress like old-school...

Long may she wave! Yanks hoist 2015 Wild Card Home Field Advantage Flag o'er the House that Ruth Built

YO ADRIENNE, WE DID IT! Well, here we go. One game, one last run, and a hurricane on the way.One game. Not that we ever doubted this plucky Yankee team. We knew A-Rod would hit. We knew Luis Severino would become the Yankee Pedro. We said Refsnyder needed a chance. And we pleaded with the juju gods to do something about Stephen Drew. (Don't like concussions, though.

Yankees' Postseason Berth: Stuff of Nightmares Or Glimmer of Hope?

Inexplicable seems to be the word that best describes the Yankees effort during the 2015 season. Just when you think you've got something going...... And the thought just trails off, unfinished and unfulfilled. Except that the Yankees somehow made the playoffs. So there is still light at the end of the tunnel, though many believe it is the headlight of a locomotive bearing down...

New York Yankees: 4 up for September

Another 14-14 record for the New York Yankees saw them relinquish the AL East crown to the Toronto Blue Jays, but they were still able to secure a wild card spot after last night’s 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox. Two consecutive months of 14-14 records highlight the Yankees second half struggles; they have vacillated between netting close, exciting wins to deflating, disappointing...

Game 159 Preview: Red Sox at Yankees

The Red Sox are looking to sweep the New York Yankees in a 4 game series for the first time at Yankee stadium since 1912, that's when New York went by the name of the Highlanders. Yes, it's not a frequent occurrence for the Red Sox to have this much success against their biggest rival, but what's more impressive is that the kids that haven't played in a lot of important games are...

Red Sox-Yankees Preview

Parade of Lefties Continues To Frustrate Yankees

The Yankees have faced four left-handed starting pitchers in the last five games. The results have been mixed and frustrating all around. The frustration continued last night, as Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez held them to one run over six innings, while Ivan Nova teased fans for six innings before turning into his usual inconsistent self. One bright spot last night was the...

DraftKings: Listen All Of Y’all It’s A Sabathiage

I can't believe I've come to this point in the season but it's that time, fam. Or 'Pham' if you're into making things not only hip but fantasy baseball-related. This is the time of the season where you just can take that season-long ERA/WHIP of a pitcher here and there, throw them out the window, turn on your Janet Jackson album and sing 'what have you done for me lately?' *Singing...

This was the culmination of a season-long journey the Mets and their supporters have navigated through for months on end. Under the lights. A nation of baseball fans watching. Their ace on the...

For Yankees, Sabathia (Not Harvey) Story of Subway Series Finale

For the Yankees, the story of Sunday night’s game was the stellar outing by CC Sabathia.  Sabathia gave up a run in the 1st inning before getting an out, and threw over 30 pitches before it was done, but settled down nicely to give the Yankees 6 very solid innings. The Mets have their own storyline, for sure, but the Yankees have to be pleased with Sabathia’s performance. After...

Grizzled Veteran & Raw Rookie Shine In Yankees' Win

CC Sabathia is one of the few players on the Yankees' current roster who has experience playing in a pennant race. Last night he showed how one is supposed to behave in just such a race. Sabathia, whose struggles this season have been more than well-documented, turned in a truly stellar performance: 6.2 IP, 3H, 0R, 0ER, 2BB, 6K. He pitched his heart out, matching zeros with the...
