Yankees are now 6 and 1 against Rays due to Mustache POWER!

greystache-mustache-power

Headmaster Greystash like a MoFu!

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

2015 Yankees: How Ya Like Me Now?

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.

I Give You the 2015 Bronx Bombers

THREE home runs in one game?  Who are these guys?  Read the rest of this entry

The Good & Bad from the Yankees First 6 Games of 2015

yankees-first-six-games-2015

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

Can you remember a Yankees team with more question marks?

riddle-me-this

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

Robertson to White Sox, Sad Keanu

sad-keanu-david-robertson-to-white-sox

 

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.

The Yankees are good at building a bullpen (I think it’s their best organizational skill) and I understand they wanted (and probably needed) an elite lefty (and they just signed one in Andrew Miller), but Robertson is a stud like me.   (I’m a stud, BTW.)  He’s 29 now, and I do understand that in the middle of this four year deal is when people start to downturn hard, but again, he’s a stud, so I don’t love this non-sign at all.  I get that the Yankees receive a first round pick, but this is a tough way to grab a pick!  Finally, I must acknowledge that the Yankees have a track record of developing  relievers in their farm system, so maybe they are higher on some of their guys on the way up then I realize.
Anyway, bummer.  Robertson was classy.

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!

NY Giants & Yankee fans: Let me know when it's 2015

Now that the Yankees have all been but mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, I shifted my focus to football… only to find that the Giants stink again. Read the rest of this entry

Yankee Fans: Let's give up and watch football

My favorite Yankees blog, River Ave Blues, today lamented that Brett Gardner got thrown out of last night’s contest, which was an "important game." I’ve got to disagree – last night’s game was not important. The Yankees stopped playing important games in 2014 the instant they lost that series to the Detroit Tigers. Read the rest of this entry

#r2spect Jeter's gangsta (VIDEO)

Nobody grounds slowly to third quite like Jeter. It’s a metaphor for the 2014 season.

The Yankees are now 8 games out of the division and 3.5 games out of the second wild card spot. While the former may be impossible, the latter is not… but it’s probably impossible for this team. They just can’t score runs and if you can’t score runs, you can’t win. It’s that simple. If you watched the last two games against Baltimore, you know what I’m talking about. The Orioles are not a great team, and they simply GAVE the Yankees runs in both games, but the Yankees couldn’t take advantage of an opportunity.

So yeah… the Orioles are not a great team and I don’t think anyone is picking them to win the World Series, but they’re not a horrible team. Like the Yankees. Let’s all just look reality in the mirror. It’s a miracle the Yankees are over .500 – it’s really incredible because they are terrible at 50% of that which it takes to win a baseball game.

It is what it is – might as well start looking forward to next year.
