After Gatorade Goodbye, Jeter Shows His Flair For The Dramatic For, Perhaps, One Last Time

It might have been the last one of his career. If so, it is right up there with all of the other great moments he has entertained his fans with throughout the years.  Thanks to R.A. Dickey's decision to throw a fastball last night, Derek Jeter showed off his flair for the dramatic for one of the last--and maybe the last time--in his career, when he connected for his fourth...

Yankees game 152: Walk off overcomes late game mistake

Toronto Blue Jays 2 — New York Yankees 3 The Yankees walk-off on a ninth inning error. Shane Greene got the start for the Yankees and while it took him a lot of pitches to get through the first three innings, he settled down. After a single in the third inning, Greene would retire the next 11 faced. He would hold the Blue Jays off the scoreboard through his start and the offense...

Final Send off for the Captain

Derek Jeter began his final homestand in the Bronx tonight. He singled off R.A. Dickey, got caught stealing; probably trying to give the home crowd a nice memento to remember him by. And then he did something legendary. Jeter hit a home run off Dickey into the left field seats. As he rounded the bases, he had to be wondering if it was the last one he’ll hit. Unless you’re living...

Blue Jays-Yankees Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees hoped more would be at stake than second place, but the AL East rivals have faded from the playoff chase leading up to this series. That's certainly not how Derek Jeter wanted to go out as he plays the opener of his final homestand with New York. The visiting Blue Jays will try to avoid a fifth consecutive loss Thursday night when R...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 18

So, who’s the better start: Doug Fister @MIA or Felix Hernandez @LAA? That’s what the rankings are for! (They also say Fister by a hair.) R.A. Dickey @NYY scares me because of the ballpark and the long ball, but I think on average this is an appropriate ranking. Tsuyoshi Wada against the Dodgers could be an interesting start as LA struggles against LHP. Vidal Nuno at Colorado...

Why You Should Believe in Travis d’Arnaud in 2015

Mets rookie catcher Travis d’Arnaud got off to a bit of a rocky start in his first full season as the New York Mets everyday catcher. The struggles were a shock for the 25-year-old, whom the Mets acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in the R.A. Dickey deal back in 2013. d’Arnaud had been a top 100 prospect in baseball every year since before the 2010 season, and had compiled...

My ABC’s Have Thirteen K’s And One L

It shouldn’t even drive me this insane, this latest bottle of diarrhea that the Mets have served up to us hoping to classify it as vintage because of the night Jacob deGrom had. These games mean absolutely nothing to nobody. The fact that deGrom made history by tying the major league record for K’s to start a game with eight provides the most important thing, which is hope for...

Mets Struggles Continue at Citi Field

In last nights win against the Nationals some very interesting stats came up during the game. The first being that in the last 18 games, Travis d’Arnaud has only struck out five times. Two of those strikeouts being last night, it is hard to undersell how impressive a turn around it has been for the Mets young catcher. He is starting to show the big league promise the Mets saw...

Tim Wakefield: R.A. Dickey ‘Doing What A Knuckleballer Should Do’ (Video)

The Toronto Blue Jays gave up a ton to get R.A. Dickey, and while he hasn’t been a Cy Young-caliber pitcher, he’s certainly been solid with Toronto. Dickey will get the ball Sunday in the series finale with the Red Sox, his 30th start of the season. It marks the fourth consecutive season he’s made 30 starts, and he’s been a workhorse in two seasons with the Jays. Former Red...

The Toronto Blue Jays began last month near the top of the AL East standings and had the most home runs of any club in baseball. That power surge faded along with their place among postseason contenders throughout August, but they're hoping how they finished the month was the start of a turnaround.

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Aug 26

Tuesday’s probable pitchers are a pretty deep crop with 18 starts ranking as league average or better and some solid names/matchups from number 1 down to about 13 or 14. Facing the Yankees in Comerica, a Yankees team with the 22nd-best wOBA in baseball over the last month, I’m more bullish on Rick Porcello than the rankings indicate. He has a 3.10 ERA on the season but Steamer...
