CHRIS YOUNG NEWS

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...

Yankees game 150: Tempers flare in loss

New York Yankees 1 — Tampa Bay Rays 6 The game gets away but some retaliation appears late. For the Yankees offense, only one name of late would spark the minimal offense that appears. Chris Young hit a ringing double down the left field line for the Yankees first hit of the game in the second inning. Ichiro Suzuki would follow with a single that scored Young and the Yankees took...

BTS Player of the Week – New York Yankees’ Chris Young

By Sam Henry Player of Week- Chris Young (9/8-9/14) As if it wasn’t enough already that Chris Young robbed and duped one New York baseball team out of $7.25 million this season, he has tried his luck with the crosstown rivals from the Bronx.  Young signed as a free agent with the New York Mets last winter after he batted just .200 with the Oakland Athletics in 2013.

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...

Baghdad Terry Strikes Again

“They’ve got a good team. They’ve done a nice job. I don’t think we’re that far away. (…) They’re going to be in good shape. They are young, and they’re going to have another year under their belts, too. But we’ve made a lot of changes here, and I agree exactly with what [general manager Sandy Alderson] said three months ago. We’re very, very close.” -Terry...

Let the record show that the 2014 Yankees - of the Incontinent Empire - didn't even make it to mid-September for playing meaningful games. Our "post-reason" race, even with the phony one-day wild card, ended before Monday's third-quarter moon. Last year, they at least made it to the final weekend. At this rate, in 2015, we'll be free on Labor Day.From now on...

Dugout Digest – it’s all wide open

Who will make the playoffs in the American League? Well, the Orioles and Angels seem like locks, but after that…who knows? Oakland’s once firm hold on a playoff spot has dwindled, and they’re only 1.5 games up on the Mariners for either Wild Card, let alone the top spot. The Tigers and Royals are separated by just a half game in the AL Central, and Detroit only have a half...

Thank you, Chris "Forever" Young. You spared us from a night of ignominy that, even in this cold year of mediocrity, would have forever stung

In recent years, a handful of players came to New York to be magically reborn. It's a short list: David Wells... Paul O'Neill... Nick Swisher... Scott Brosius... Bartolo Colon... Russel Martin...Some needed lineups with more support (O'Neill, Brosius). Some needed the giant stage of Gotham. (Swisher, Wells). Some needed juice. (Bartolo).Often, donning the pinstripes brings...
