It’s a bit of an understatement to say that the New York Yankees have been impressive of late. After an ugly 3-6 start and losing their first three series, the Yankees are now 13-8 and 8-2 in their last 10 games. They’ve won 3 games in a row and have won their last 4 series against the Rays, Tigers(!), Mets and the Rays again, going for yet another sweep of the latter team again today.
Hats off the bullpen – they are really stealing the show right now. KEEP IT UP, FELLAS!
The Yankees are about an eighth of the way through the season, so I thought I’d take a look at what’s working, not working and what needs to be taken behind the barn and shot.* Read the rest of this entry
THREE home runs in one game? Who are these guys? Read the rest of this entry
The Yankees first six games are in the books and there’s no sugar-coating it – you don’t want to go 2-4 at home. It’s not all gloom and doom and it’s still early… here’s the good and bad. Read the rest of this entry
Another Opening Day is in the books. Here’s the best and worst of the first Yankees game of 2015. Read the rest of this entry
The 2015 Yankees should consider branding themselves as the Bronx Riddlers because seriously, there’s so many different outcomes you could expect from this team. Read the rest of this entry
Pitchers and catchers are due to report in just weeks, not months, so before we know it, the New York Yankees 2015 season will be upon us. And it’ll feature these guys, who are… uhm… I dunno. Let’s dig in. Read the rest of this entry
David Robertson is going to the White Sox and I am bummed. He got what people are calling a fair deal at 4 yrs/$46 million.
Jeter's career highlights in LEGO, Jeter's last home game, Giants play away Thursday Night Game of DOOM
Watching these Jeter career highlights in LEGO form is hilarious – I’ve seen these clips a million times, so to see them in LEGO is somehow fitting… maybe because Jeter himself his held together with plates and screws at this point in his life. It should also be pointed out that all of these highlights happened… I dunno, like 10 years ago. That’s kinda sad, no?
Tonight is Derek Jeter’s final home game (weather permitting) and Sunday at Fenway will be the final game of his career. Jeter had a great run and did amazing things, but the last two seasons have been a nightmare for that guy (Jeter is ranked 92 with a -0.2 WAR on fangraphs – yeoch). Oh well – everybody can’t end their career like Mariano Rivera.
Anyway, if there’s no Yankees tonight or you just don’t give a shiz, the New York Giants are playing the Thursday Night Game of DOOM on CBS. The away team always loses this game and, of course, the Giants are on the road.
AWESOME SPORTS DAY!
