Gut Reaction: Mets 8, Yankees 2 (4/25/15)

Now that’s more like it! The Mets came storming back from an unpleasant visit to the Bronx last night. This time the Mets offense was on display, as they hit three home runs and tallied a dozen hits. Kevin Plawecki had a nice offensive game by driving in the first three runs of his career, two of which came via his first career home run. Lucas Duda started the scoring with a shot...

Chris Young Still Motivated From Being Released By Mets

The Mets will play the crosstown rival Yankees this weekend at Yankee Stadium beginning tonight when Jacob deGrom takes the mound for the first of a three game set. The Mets will find a familiar face in Yankees outfielder Chris Young, who was released by the team last August after hitting only .205 in 88 games. Young signed a one year deal with the Mets worth $7.25 million last...

Hot Yankees host scalding-hot Mets

When was the last time the New York Mets came into Yankee Stadium riding an franchise-record-tying 11-game winning streak? Never, until now. Yes, the boys from Queens are red-hot and will face a slightly-less-hot New York Yankees club that has won six of their last seven games (seven of 10 on the road trip) to move two games above .500 and into a three-way tied for first place in...

Subway Series Preview: Why the Mets' winning streak is good for Subway Squawkers!

Here is a "Behind the Squawkers" look at this blog: Way back in early 2006, when Squawker Jon and I worked together at the web department of the New York Daily News, we used to trash talk each other on our respective teams. That winter, it looked like both the Yankees and Mets would be playoff-worthy for the first time since the Subway Series year of 2000. So Squawker Jon suggested...

Yankees game 15: Offense heats up in the cold

New York Yankees 13 – Detroit Tigers 4   Even with snow, the Yankees bats could not be chilled down against Tigers ace, David Price. 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...

Bronx Bombers home run alert: most in baseball

Keeping tabs on every home run for the New York Yankees this season. In game two of their series at the Detroit Tigers, two home runs and more specifically, five runs, helped the Yanks to a 5-2 victory.

Chris Young Perfect As Yankees Even Series With Detroit

How about that Chris Young? The Yankees fourth outfielder went 3-for-3 with a HR and two walks on Tuesday evening, and played solid defense in RF in place of Carlos Beltran. With the home run, Young entered a three way tie on the team, even though he is only 10th in ABs. He was instrumental in the Yankees evening the series with Detroit at one game apiece, and was a solid backup...

Bronx Bombers home run alert boomsticks and broomsticks

Keeping tabs on every home run for the New York Yankees this season. In what was their first sweep at the “Trop,” in a decade, the Yanks offense was a powder keg. Which may help explain A-Rod’s helmet. Not even the dreaded catwalks could halt the Yanks power surge. The weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays, saw the Yankees go yard four times. As of this writing, the Yanks...

Should the Yankees turn to Chris Young

It’s still early in the 2015 season and any look at statistics has to be done with the caveat of considering it is from a small sample size. This could be thought to be the case when considering the right field situation for the Yankees. Carlos Beltran is off to a horrible start with a slash line of .156.176.250. The typical thought is that he is a veteran and he will turn it...

Cody Ross was never a fit with the Diamondbacks

The much-maligned tenure of Cody Ross with the Arizona Diamondbacks came to an abrupt end this past weekend when the Diamondbacks released Ross, eating the final $9.5 million remaining on his three-year, $25 million contract. Ross hooked on with the Athletics this week, but looking back, his tenure in Arizona was doomed to fail from the beginning. When former Diamondbacks GM Kevin...

If Chris Young homers in a forest, do the trees cheer?

For the record: I hope Chris Young salvages his career.Dear God, it'd be nice to have someone in the lineup with an actual pulse - one guy worth holding water to watch, instead of rushing to the kitchen for a mound of glistening comfort food. Right now, there is A-Rod - sort of - and maybe Brett Gardner. Now that Jose Pirela is out, and since Rob Refsnyder never even got a chance...

I just know I said something positive about someone or something.So here's the latest, based upon last night's game;1.  I couldn't watch most of it because Chris Young played, I think, 7 innings.2.  I did see Pirela's two at bats and he is a, "tough out."  He has a great eye for pitches so, unlike virtually every other...
