After yesterday’s rest, the Yankees will play 17 games in 17 days and the first 6 could make or break their playoff chances. Things are very scary for the Bronx Bombers right now. Read the rest of this entry
The Yankees are starting a 4 game set with the Blue Jays tonight that will determine the 2015 season for them. If they win the series (taking 3 of 4 or better), they still have a chance to win the division. If the Bombers fold like Superman on laundry day, they’ll most likely still win the wild card and have to play the all or nothing play in-game, which is a total crapshoot. There are three things I have my eye on for this series, so here we go. Read the rest of this entry
The Yankees have scored 2 runs or less 10 times so far this month and are 2-8 in said games, which makes sense. Nevertheless, the Yankees are second in all of baseball in team runs scored (behind the Blue Jays) and in runs per game (also behind the Blue Jays) and also currently second in the AL East. BEHIND. THE. BLUE. JAYS. Read the rest of this entry
Every time Tampa got close, the Yankee offense blew them away. I can’t believe that’s the case, but it’s true. The Yankee offense is performing pretty well. And they’re 16-7 against right-handed pitchers! And this lefty heavy lineup is 5-5 against southpaws, which is better than I expected. Read the rest of this entry
After starting the 2015 season 3-6 and losing their first three series, the Yankees have gone 13 for 16 and won five series in a row and they’re all alone in first place. Anybody that says they saw this coming is a blatant LIAR (especially after Tanaka got hurt) and even the most passive Yankees fan has got to be eating this up with a spoon. They’re going up to Toronto to play the sputtering Blue Jays next, and you’ve got to like their chances. Hopefully this combination of timely offense, good defense (especially in the outfield) and amazing bullpen can keep it up.
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!
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
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!
