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 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 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 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 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

Game 2: Explosive.

It’s always nice when I can use this image for something other than the opposition lighting us up for a ton of runs and/or our pitching spitting the bit.  It’s one of my trust, handy-dandy kaboom pictures that can… Continue reading

Yankees news: Welcome to the Bronx, Russell Martin!

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/12/yankees-reach-agreement-with-russell-martin.html   What do we think of this?  With Posada moving to the DH for next season and Cervelli having acted as Posada’s back-up, this would bode well for Martin being our starting catcher for next season.  I’d also consider… Continue reading
