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 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 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

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

Game 5: Bad bullpen.

This game was so brutal, it took me until this morning to be able to write about it.  We give our ace a 4-0 lead, hand it off to the bullpen for the 8th……and all hell breaks loose.  That’s… Continue reading
