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 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 8: The Empire strikes back.

There is no greater feeling in the world as a Yankees fan than either winning the World Series or beating the Red Sox.  I’m sure that Red Sox fans feel the same.  Especially when we can beat them in… Continue reading

Game 4: Close shave.

Well, this game was a lot closer than I thought it would be, especially after we jumped out to an early 4-0 lead.  We usually play very well against the Twins, both in the regular season and the postseason, so… Continue reading

Game 155: Officially worried.

Sorry for the lateness of the next two posts, I’ve been sick all weekend and haven’t had much energy to do anything, even use the internet.  So there’s that.  Add to all that the fact the Yankees have been… Continue reading

Game 150: For George.

Tonight, George Steinbrenner was honored by the Yankees with the unveiling of the plaque/monument in Monument Park.  Only an event like this would bring Joe Torre back to Yankee Stadium, in fact it was the first time he’d seen… Continue reading

Game 145: It’s about freakin’ time.

Hallelujah!  We finally won a game!  Our long, national nightmare is finally over!  Well, sort of.  We did everything we could to lose the game, but finally decided to just say screw it and win anyway.  Which was damn… Continue reading

Game 140: Cue the dramatic finale!

We haven’t had a good old-fashioned walk-off in a long time, so this was cool to see.  We also badly needed a win to stave off a sweep and 4-game losing streak.  So this win today was good for… Continue reading

Game 130: A close shave.

Whereas yesterday we had kind of crappy pitching and a whole lot of offense, today we had no offense and really great pitching.  We can’t ever get them both at the same time, can we?  *sigh*  On the March… Continue reading

Game 125: I hate when that happens.

Ivan Nova made his debut with the team, and did pretty well I thought.  He just let himself get beat by Jose Bautista one time too many.  That’ll happen, but the kid more than earned himself another start, I… Continue reading
