Good Eye Kid, Good Eye

As often as the Yankees find themselves in the postseason, they find themselves among the top MLB teams in the walks category just as often

There is one offensive statistic in baseball that has always been underrated and overlooked. To tally this stat, requires a focused eye, composure, restraint, and most of all, patience. Some players and teams lack those qualities, but others excel in those areas allowing them to succeed. A walk is as good as a hit the [...]

An Illustrious career of closing game after game with robotic like precision, and hardly ever giving fans more than the occasional runner on first to worry about will do that [...]

For Yankees, No Place Like Home

Since 2009, the Yankees have played some of their best baseball at home.

  After a split in a four game series on the road against the Kansas City Royals, the Yankees will come home and begin a six game homestand, starting with the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. So far this season, the Yanks have been somewhat disappointing. With inconsistent pitching and slumping stars, New York [...]

Is Swish the Key to Offense’s Success?

Swish the Key to Success

It’s incredible how sometimes one player can make such a huge impact on an entire team’s performance.

Tale of Two Weekends

Sabathia is 0-4 with a 7.20 ERA in 2011 vs Boston.

Why Bedard makes sense for the Yankees

Courtesey of zimbio.com

While landing Ubaldo Jimenez would certainly make a bigger splash, another available pitcher would probably make more sense for the Yankees: Erik Bedard. No, Bedard is not as good of a pitcher as Jimenez, and no, he does not have as much upside.  He can however still be a productive pitcher and comes at a [...]
