Games 43-45: The Subway Series

What a great series this was!  After a disappointing first game that saw us only able to score one run after bludgeoning 13 the night before, the 2nd and 3rd game of this series were a marked and vast improvement.  We got stellar pitching in all three games, great bullpen pitching especially, AND in the … Continue reading

Game 41: This definitely calls for the Drama Llama.

Well, you knew it was time for him to make a re-appearance.  I think a 15 inning victory counts for dramatic, although it shouldn’t have needed that many innings just to beat the damn Orioles.  More on that later, though. How about that Bartolo Colon?  Good grief.  8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, … Continue reading

Game 40: It’s about damn time.

Well.  It’s nice to see the Yankees taking care of business for once.  Finally snapping a six-game skid, we got not only great pitching, but offense that didn’t die on the vine.  Ivan Nova pitched 5.1 innings, gave up 1 ER on 4 H, walked two and struck out four.  Our bullpen collectively gave up … Continue reading

Game 33: It’ll have to do.

Another game, another woeful offensive showing.  I’m still comforted in the fact that our pitching has at least held up all season, so we can afford to win games when only scoring three runs.  So there’s that.  We’re also at… Continue reading

Game 32: Every once in a while.

The title of this entry alludes to how often you can expect the Yankees to score 12 runs in one game.  We’ve been having trouble scoring runs lately as you know, so seeing such a wealth of runs in one… 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 17: That’s why they call us the Bronx Bombers.

Holy home runs, Batman!  I guess the Yankees decided to demonstrate their superior offensive skills last night, while also demonstrating why CC Sabathia is basically our only reliable starter.  *sigh*  Not that I’m complaining mind you, just that geez. … Continue reading

Game 16: Colon: Who knew?

I can honestly say I don’t think I was expecting Bartolo Colon to pitch anywhere near as well as he did, considering that he’s basically our long-relief guy, and trying to turn those guys into starters (or in his case,… Continue reading

Game 13: That got a little too close for comfort.

I can appreciate that sometimes the Yankees like to make games close because they want to make sure the fans are still paying attention and haven’t dozed off.  I mean, I get that.  It would be nice however, if… Continue reading

Game 11: You know what time it is.

The Drama Llama!  For those of you who are new to Yankees Chick this season, the Drama Llama only makes his appearance when the Yankees win a game in spectacular, come-from-behind fashion, much like last night.  Those of you… Continue reading
