The Didi Dilemma: Why don't we have anybody to pinch hit?

Yesterday, in the tenth inning, this awful thing happened. As you can see, the game was on the line. The Evils had two men on base, and up comes Didi Gregorius, who on a good day is batting over .200. In the dugout, the Yankees have Brett Gardner, Brian McCann and the increasingly irrelevant Garrett Jones. Earlier, they had pinch-hit Stephen Drew - for what reason I cannot instantly...

"I definitely chased today," he said. "Took some...

Yankees game 22: Lose in extras, still win series

Tampa Bay Rays 3 – New York Yankees 2 (13 innings) In the first inning, the Yankees threatened early with a leadoff single by Jacoby Ellsbury. He would steal second base and advanced on a sacrifice by Chris Young, though it looked like he was trying to reach base. With a runner on third, the Yankees would need just a fly ball or a ball in play but Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira...

The Yankees and the business of prospects

View image | gettyimages.com There has been much discussion about the Yankees farm system in the early part of the 2015 season, especially with the sluggish start of Stephen Drew and others.  The farm system has made significant strides over the past couple of years and is starting to have a large number of players get attention and through their performance are knocking on the...

New York Yankees Players Reach Some Very Significant Milestones

Last week, prior to the New York Yankees’ series against the Baltimore Orioles, the team’s standard milestone press release caused quite a few waves in baseball circles.

Everything’s coming up ARod! If you listened to last week’s episode, you know Scott and I recorded during the Sunday night game and missed the 7 run rally vs Boston.

It was much needed...

Stephen Drew Silences His Critics (For A While, At Least)

Through the first five games of this young season, Stephen Drew was on pace to have a third-straight subpar year.  Though he still might have such a year, he has proven, in the last two games at least, that he is capable of much better.   After his surprising solo home run against the Red Sox on Sunday night, he hit an even more surprising home run--a  grand slam--against the...

Amid Continuing Concerns, Yankees Enjoy Laugher Against Red Sox

On Sunday night the Yankees looked at all of us--the fans, the media and the casual observers--and said: “Beware the small sample size.” Sunday’s game was exactly what the team needed after they went 1-4 in their first five games and looked terrible in the process. In Sunday’s game, the Yankees batted around in the first inning, scoring seven runs, including three on home...
