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 42: How’s that for offense?

Well now that was something interesting, huh?  We go from barely being able to score runs to putting up a 13-spot the next night.  Schizophrenic baseball is what we do best, and we do it well. CC Sabathia got the call to the mound tonight, and pitched just as well as Bartolo Colon did last … 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 31: One step forward, two steps back.

Just when you think you’re getting somewhere, you find out that you aren’t.  We fall behind early 5-0, but then come back to within one, only to end up losing by two.  That’s like getting kicked in the nuts, and… Continue reading

Game 30: Finally.

It ain’t much, but I’ll take it.  We’ve been having a hard time scoring runs while getting great pitching, so when we get a combination of it, you don’t argue if the run scoring output is low.  Ivan Nova… Continue reading

Game 27: Just couldn’t fight ‘em off.

CC didn’t pitch nearly as bad as the final score would suggest.  If your starter only gives up four runs over the course of seven innings, you should be able to win that game.  I’m sorry.  Our offense let him… Continue reading

Game 26: Back from a lengthy delay.

The Yankees sure do love those dramatic, late-inning victories, don’t they?  It’s almost like they enjoy giving their fans heart attacks by making them wait until the last very last minute.  A win is a win though, and we’ll… Continue reading
