Games 43-45: The Subway Series

What a great series this was!  After a disappointing first game that saw us only able to score one run after bludgeoning 13 the night before, the 2nd and 3rd game of this series were a marked and vast improvement.  We got stellar pitching in all three games, great bullpen pitching especially, AND in the … 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 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 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 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

ALDS Game 1: Deja-vu.

Ah, yes.  It’s that time of year again.  Playoff time and Magic Number time, too.  As you know it takes 11 wins to win the World Series and the Yankees are 10 wins away from successfully defending their title. … Continue reading

Game 160: Yankees strike first.

Whenever possible, I remind myself to be grateful for the little things — like Papelbon blowing another game after his team commits a boneheaded error.  A game that neither team deserved to win, really…..ended up in our favor.  Thumbs… 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 136: Eight Is Enough. Just kidding.

How ’bout them Yankees, huh?  To steal a line from Dan Patrick, you can’t stop them, you can only hope to contain them.  Come to think of it, the last time I watched ESPN was when Dan Patrick was… Continue reading

Game 123: The offense returns! Again! (for now??) pt. 3

That was better.  On the heels of news that Alex is headed toward the DL, we really needed a win to get our sh!t together and thankfully we got one.  It didn’t look like we would, but the Yanks… Continue reading
