Game 21: Where’s the offense?

I know that the Yankees have a bad habit of not scoring a ton after scoring a whole lot, but this lack of offense is starting to be disconcerting.  They score 15 runs in the 2nd game of the… Continue reading

Game 18: Guess what time it is again?

Isn’t he just the cutest?  He always makes an appearance when the Yankees snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and come from behind late in the game, or win in extras — like yesterday.  Apologies for the late… 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 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 14: The Comeback Kids™ strike again.

The Yankees are getting good at this “fall behind early, take the lead late” thing.  Not that I’m complaining mind you, just that it’s costing CC Sabathia wins.  It would be nice if we didn’t always wait until the… 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 12: Look on the bright side.

Yes, losing tonight stunk.  Yes, it was bad that our offense could only muster three runs, one of which came in the bottom of the 9th, which is literally the 11th hour.  Yes, it would have been better 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

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

Baseball starts tomorrow!  That’s right, at 1 p.m., the 2011 season kicks off.  On that note, Girardi released his Opening Day lineup and Brett Gardner will be leading off.  Mike Mussina will be throwing out the first pitch.  Girardi… Continue reading
