Yanks Streaking, Host Braves

image3

When CC Sabathia takes the mound tonight against the Atlanta Braves, the Yankees will have a chance to do something they haven’t done in seven years – have a 10-game winning streak. That streak came in May of ’05, as Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez are the only mainstays from that team. If Interleague play [...]

Lessons in the Bronx

It all started here...

  April 18, 1923. On this date, a grand coliseum opened its gates for the first time– thus the evil empire was born. No, I’m not referring to a place where great Roman warriors once fought to the death in front of thousands of cheering spectators. Although, the environment is chillingly comparable. The infamous structure [...]

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 [...]

Last night, Major League Baseball revealed its updated American League All-Star voting tallies. For both Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson, it appears that almost regardless of what happens between now and when the rosters are unveiled on July 1st, they will be in the starting lineup representing the Yankees at the Mid-Summer Classic. The tally [...]

Derek and the Mets

11jeter-blog480

Throughout his career, Derek Jeter has made a living by sending the ball out to right field. With his classic “inside-out” swing, he’s racked up 3,164 career hits – and counting. Playing against the New York Mets has helped that total since 1997, the first year of interleague play. In 81 games against the Mets [...]

Cito: Growing Star Shortstop Down on Yankee Farm

Cito Culver & I

The Charleston RiverDogs starting shortstop, Christopher “Cito” Culver, is a name for every Yankee fan to remember. Culver was drafted in 2010 as the 32nd overall pick out of Irondequoit High School (Rochester, NY). The New York native could not be more thrilled being pegged by many as “the next Derek Jeter.” Let’s face it (sad [...]

Closer Look at Dandy Andy

145774236_crop_650x440

Andy Pettitte’s performance last night turned back the clock. For a span of about three hours, I felt as if I was 14 years old again. Number 46 dealing on the mound, pitching in a game against a division rival with first place on the line. Pettitte went 7.1 innings, giving up two hits, walking [...]

Changes to come in the AL East

Captain Derek Jeter will look to lead the rest of the lineup past the Rays in an attempt to turn the tides and take the top spot in the AL East

  With some key division match-ups set to take place this week between AL East teams, it may be a chance for the Yankees to either move up the ranks and get back on top with a few wins, or get pushed further down if they suffer any losses. The Yankees just wrapped up their [...]

Jeter Climbs the Ranks

Derek Jeter rounds the bases after his leadoff homer on Sunday.

  As Derek Jeter settled into the box Sunday afternoon to face Justin Verlander, many thought the Yanks offense would struggle. They were facing the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young award winner, and coming off two consecutive losses, there was no way Verlander would struggle for a third straight time (Verlander had not lost [...]

All or Nothing for Yanks

The Yankees have heavily relied on the home run this year.

  Through 50 games, the Yankees season has been sort of Jekyll and Hyde. One night they can score 10 runs and pitch well. The next game, they’ll score two and give up eight. The lineup has been feast or famine. We all know the Yankees’ struggles with RISP; they’ve been well documented throughout the [...]

Yankees Quarterly Report

All of Yankee nation is up in arms as to why there's been so many problems with the organization. The Yankees are off to just a so-so start, only one game above .500 after the first quarter of ball played.

A record of 21-20, perfectly reflects the Yankees performance through the first quarter of the 2012 MLB season– average. There has been a few bright points in the early goings, but for the most part, those have been few and far between and have been mostly overshadowed by poor play from the star-studded roster, on [...]

Interleague Equals Success for Yankees

InterleaguePlay-1

  With Interleague play scheduled to start tomorrow around the MLB, it’s important to take notice of the impact on baseball ever since its inception in 1997. It allows territorial rivalries to be formed that ordinarily wouldn’t be created. Next year there will be a change, as the Houston Astros will  move to the American [...]

Home Confines Comfort Curtis

Curtis Granderson's run production has been limited to the confines of Yankee Stadium.

It’s been common knowledge that players, regardless of sport, perform better at home. They can sleep in their own beds and can stick to the routines and superstitions that make them comfortable. This season so far, Curtis Granderson has taken home success to a whole new level. It seems as if his run production only [...]

Yankees Game 31 Lineup: 05/10/12

C.C. needs to keep it rolling for a big win in tonight's final game of the set against the Rays

  After last night’s blunder on the mound in the top of the ninth inning, by assumed-to-be interim closer, David Robertson, the Yankees need to bounce back in a big way in tonight’s battle of the best, between the Tampa Bay’s David Price and New York’s C.C. Sabathia. Last night, David Phelps gave the team [...]

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 [...]

Yankees Game 28 Lineup: 05/06/12

The bewildered Phil Hughes and the Yankees will look to get the club a win today as they still try to get it together.

  Once again, Hiroki Kuroda, along with the entire offense, underperformed last night  as the Yankees lost to the Royals in a 5-1 score. This afternoon Phil Hughes will get the start for the Yanks, as they try to get a victory on the road before returning back to the Bronx. Hughes has had an [...]
