Kuroda in Cruise Control

Hiroki Kuroda has been on quite the roll lately, finally finding some consistency on the mound

  Perhaps it was the nerves of transitioning to a new team that got the best of him in the beginning of the year. Or maybe it was just the pressure of playing baseball in the big apple that took some time for him to adjust to. Whatever the case may be, Hiroki Kuroda seems [...]

Game 69: Five-Run First Does Pettitte In


New York Yankees 4 — New York Mets 6   Five-run 1st inning was too much to overcome in tonight’s 6-4 loss to the New York Mets.   Andy Pettitte started for the Yankees tonight and he struggled right away.

Cano No Help This Year

Despite decent offensive numbers, Robinson Cano's misleading stats haven't been to beneficial to the Yankees so far this season.

Compared to the last few seasons where the Yankees have become accustomed to the consistent production from the bat of Robinson Cano, there hasn’t been too much of the same on display this season. His .299 batting average, 14 home runs, and 33 RBIs that pad his stats this year are a bit misleading, because [...]

[...]

Yogi Berra: An Unconventional Legend

Yogi Berra is the most unforgettable, unconventional, legendary catcher in Yankee and baseball history

  His husky build on top of his short, 5’ 7” stature, didn’t make for the most athletic frame. And his unorthodox style of play cast a constant shadow of doubt that he could ever make it as a professional ballplayer. But what he lacked in size and support, he made up for with his [...]

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 [...]

Game 61: A-Rod Goes Grand in Comeback
