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 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 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 22: There’s the offense.

Ask a question, sometimes you get it answered.  After a few games of seemingly narcoleptic offense where we were only able to score runs in spurts of HRs, it was nice to see a game where 75% of our… 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 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
