VIDEO: Toronto Blue Jays Owe Evan Gattis and Collin McHugh a Sixer of Beer

El Oso Blanco, known to his parents as Evan Gattis, laced a line drive home run just a couple of rows beyond the right field fence off of Michael Pineda in the top of the 2nd earlier today. Sure it’s a short porch in right at Yankee Stadium. We all know that, but Gattis is a right-handed batter, so the opposite field shot is still impressive. However, Gattis hit a bona fide bomb...

Yankees’ stagnant offense puts pressure on fragile rotation

Through most of the first four months of the season, the New York Yankees offense was one of the high-points of the club. They were second in the league in scoring and fairly consistent. The production was typically spread throughout a majority of the lineup; just about everyone helped produce runs at some point. But, once August came around, the offense has been sputtering more...

Yankees Bolster Their Rotation with Luis Severino

The Yankees rotation is looking rather thin these days. After loosing Michael Pineda to a forearm injury, the team was left with a gaping hole in their rotation behind Masahiro Tanaka, Nathan Eovaldi, Ivan Nova and CC Sabathia. Even before Pineda’s injury, the team already had a hole at the back of their rotation in Sabathia, whose days as a productive pitcher appear to be well...

Last night, Michael Pineda, and his akimbo hat, looked like an overcooked sausage, looking for a bun.The game was over before I sat down.  A 2 run dinger in the first inning just sucked the air out of the Yankee balloon.  Some will say, " you can't win them all."  But how about waiting until the game is underway?It turned the Ju-Ju backwards.In the early innings, as the Yankees...

New York Yankees trade rumors: should they add another starter?

Cole Hamels The New York Yankees have plenty of pitching. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia, Nathan Eovaldi and Ivan Nova comprise the team’s starting rotation, while Adam Warren, currently exiled to the bullpen, is also a viable option. All of those players are capable of throwing quality innings, but fans are right to have some concerns. Lately, Sabathia can’t seem...

New York Yankees: June letdowns

June is an important point in the season for slumping players, as upper management has to decide if this poor month was simply a rough patch or a ominous sign of bad things to come.

Pineda’s Cutter is His Bread and Butter

Michael Pineda has been nothing short of dominant this year. Sure, his 4.08 ERA isn't too dazzling, but with a 2.73 FIP and 2.80 SIERA, it seems as though sequencing and BABIP have hurt him more than poor pitching. Take a glance at Pineda's .349 BABIP — a number 60 points above his career average .279 — and it isn't too difficult to see an overly inflated ERA, especially given...
