Texas Rangers vs New York Yankees series preview

The Texas Rangers will go to New York and face the Yankees in a three-game weekend series. The Rangers enter the series 18-23 and 8.5 games behind the first-place Houston Astros. The team has been playing better as of late, but one aspect of the game is always off. Either the offense is shut down, the starters do poorly, or the bullpen cannot close out the game. The bullpen has improved...

What Pineda Needs to Improve

Michael Pineda‘s May 10th performance against the Orioles was historically good. His sixteen strikeouts were the most by any pitcher since David Wells fanned that many on July 30, 1997, and he became only the fourth Yankees pitcher to rack up that many K’s in a game, joining Wells, David Cone, and, of course, Ron Guidry. Pineda’s outing was also notable for its brevity. Including...

Is Michael Pineda a true ace?

There is little denying the fact that Michael Pineda has been the best pitcher in the New York Yankees rotation this season. He might have been the best pitcher during his time with the club last season as well. Being the best surrounded by mediocrity might make one the staff ace, but does not necessarily qualify one as a “true ace.” Is Pineda ready to be that type of pitcher...

Jesus Montero doesn't know the trade is over and the Yankees won

Jesus was already too chubby as a Yankee farmhand.Sometime soon, the Seattle Mariners likely will recall Jesus H. Montero from the Pacific Coast League, where the newly toned, 1B mountain of muscle is hitting .336 with 4 HR.Apparently, Jesus doesn't know the Great Cashman Trade is over, and Cashman won.Clearly, Michael Pineda turned out to be the prize of the deal.

Pineda vs Harvey: A New York Baseball Tradition Continues

One of the things that makes New York Baseball so compelling and fun to follow is the great rivalry between National and American League teams.

Michael Pineda’s dominance by the numbers

There was some debate at the start of the season over who would be the Yankees real ace. Would it be Masahiro Tanaka or Michael Pineda. 32 games into the season and there really isn’t much of a debate now, it is safe to say it’s Big Mike. Today’s 16 strikeout performance was just another notch on pole for Pineda. He recorded 21 outs and 16 of them were strikeouts. Today, his...

Vindication For Cashman As Yankees' Pineda Ks 16 Orioles

You have to believe Yankees GM Brian Cashman was one of the most satisfied people in the ballpark at the conclusion of Michael Pineda’s dominant Sunday afternoon start, second only to Pineda himself. When Cashman traded for Pineda prior to the 2012 season, parting with Jesus Montero, he did so because he was dreaming of starts like the one Pineda delivered on Sunday. The line...
