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 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 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

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 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 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 6: We seem to like scoring four runs.

In all three games of this series, the Yankees managed to plate four runs a piece.  Consistent, but weird on the same token.  Either way, for two of those games, four runs was enough to win and taking a series… Continue reading

Game 3: Wasn’t expecting that.

I was hoping we’d come out guns blazing and open the season with a sweep, so I’d get the opportunity to post the first Crazy Stein of the year, but alas…..twas not to be.  Phil didn’t have the best… Continue reading
