Pitchers Near Perfect

Closer Look at Dandy Andy


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.

Tonight the Yankees will try to bounce back and take game two to split [...]

Bats, Arms Can’t Find Rhythm

Both the pitching and offense haven't been able to get on the same page.

Coming into this year, the Yankees seemed to be one of the deepest teams in baseball. They had more arms than spots to put them, and a seasoned bench backing up future hall of famers. For the past two years, New York cracked the 850 runs scored mark, the only team to do so. Last [...]

Slow Starters


After acquiring Michael Pineda and Hiroki Kuroda in the offseason, the New York Yankees strong-point looked to be their starting rotation heading into 2012. But since losing Pineda for the season during spring training due to a shoulder injury on top of the struggles by the other starters on the mound, that rotation seems to [...]

Phil Hughes Should Not Be a Starter


If last night was enough, I really think the Yankees need to consider removing Phil Hughes from the starting rotation and put him in the bullpen. I know that all Yankees fans think he’s a legitimate “quality” starter, but the fact of the matter is, he definitely is not! Looking at his stats in 2009 [...]
