Huff’s Revamped Repetoire Key to His 2014 Success

Known more in the minds of many Yankees fans more as the guy who took Phil Hughes’s spot in the rotation in September 2013 and proceeded to give up 9 runs in 3.1 innings against the Red Sox, David Huff came back to the Yankees this past June after being cast off from the eventual world champion Giants with, carrying a 6.30 ERA to the Bronx.

Coming into this spring, Yusmeiro Petit didn’t have a roster spot locked down with the Giants. David Huff was ready to be the long man, and he started the spring off better than Petit.

Poor Bullpen Management Leads To Another Yankees Loss Against The Astros

Loss of Thornton leaves a temporary hole in the bullpen

Might not be able to tell, but Yankees bullpen just became a tad bit weaker with the loss of lefty specialist Matt Thornton. Thornton was put on revocable waivers and was subsequently claimed by the Washington Nationals yesterday, who have taken on his contract. Seems strange that the Yankees were concerned about such a small salary dump, Thornton was due just around $4.5 million...

Darkest before the dawn? In mere seconds yesterday, John Sterling bounced from inhuman despair to heavenly rapture

Contrary to news reports, the NY Yankees did not win yesterday: The Reds simply lost. In the ninth inning, the Evils were executing a classic choke moment - runner on a third, no outs, cleanup hitters up - and Mark Teixeira fanned. This prompted John Sterling to yelp, "Strike three, what else?"Yep, that's right. Two little words. Two sharpened knives. John couldn'...

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Brian Roberts hit three doubles and a triple, and the New York Yankees used their bullpen to hang on for a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.

New Faces Key to Giants’ Early Success

The San Francisco Giants spent the 2013-2014 offseason refraining from making big splash moves in the free agent or trade market. They didn’t hand a massive ten year contract to a middle infielder and they refused to shell out four years for a mid-tier starting pitcher. While other teams shelled out sums of money that bordered on the horrifying to lure free agents, the Giants remained...
