Game 39: From bad to worse.

Just when you thought the worst passed us by, the Yankees have to go and demonstrate that no….the worst is still coming. AJ Burnett had been pitching very well last night, with the Rays scoring just one run by the 6th inning, but then something happened (don’t ask me what) and a switch got flipped, … Continue reading

Game 34: That was a gut punch.

Ugh.  Another great start from our rotation, another wasted effort from the offense.  Granted, it’s hard to hold on to 2-1 leads, even against teams like the vaunted Royals.  AJ pitches seven innings of 1 H, 1 ER ball, and… Continue reading

Game 29: Snake-bit.

Another day, another game we lose that we could have won.  AJ didn’t even have a bad day on the mound, the defense/offense was the real reason we lost. We’re tied at 2-2 in the 7th, and suddenly our position… Continue reading

Game 19: That was annoying.

I don’t know what more we could have asked from AJ last night.  Eight innings of one-run ball is more than we’ve gotten from any starter this season.  It was a damn shame that we were no-hit until the… Continue reading

Game 15: What the heck, Mo?

Now that’s something you’re not accustomed to seeing or experiencing.  AJ Burnett pitched well, our offense did its job…..Mo just got the yips.  Fortunately for us Yankees fans, Mo’s yips come like once every blue moon, it’s not like… Continue reading

Game 10: That’s more like it.

It’s always nice when the Yanks can rebound from a crappy game and get to business.  Also, my beloved Red Wings started their playoff series against the Phoenix Coyotes last night and won, so I was two for two… Continue reading

Game 6: We seem to like scoring four runs.

In all three games of this series, the Yankees managed to plate four runs a piece.  Consistent, but weird on the same token.  Either way, for two of those games, four runs was enough to win and taking a series… Continue reading

Game 2: Explosive.

It’s always nice when I can use this image for something other than the opposition lighting us up for a ton of runs and/or our pitching spitting the bit.  It’s one of my trust, handy-dandy kaboom pictures that can… Continue reading

ALCS Game 4: We don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell, do we?

Pardon my extreme pessimism right now, but my opinion of this team’s chances to force a 7th game and win is lower than the barometer on the Titanic.  If it could go wrong last night, it did.  First AJ… Continue reading

Game 157: Is there another word for infuriating that I haven’t used yet?

Thank God for small favors — the Rays lost as well.  So we’re still .5 a game back from them for the division.  I’ve actually just started hoping we finish the season on a high note so we have… Continue reading
