New York Yankees: 3 down for April

The New York Yankees entered the 2016 season without the weighty expectations of teams like Toronto, Houston, and Kansas City. In fact, many viewed that making the playoffs, even as a wild card, would constitute a successful season. Armed with a loaded back end of the bullpen and solid defenders, the Yanks seemed to have a chance to be relatively competitive this season. At 8-14...

Gardner says top of lineup needs to spark Yanks

You could choose pretty much any spot in the lineup to point a finger at the Yankees' offensive woes, but Brett Gardner has no issue saying that he and leadoff hitter Jacoby Ellsbury must take responsibility for their recent run shortage.

Game 23: May Day

Today is the start of a new month and that means a fresh start for the Yankees. Heck, at this point I’ll consider just about anything a fresh start. A new series, a new week, whatever. The Yankees have stunk of late and there’s nothing they can do about it now. The losses are in the books. All they can do is turn the page and start winning some games. We all know the story by...

Despite funk at plate, Yankees aren't panicking

The forecast for the Yankees was that they were going to score runs in bunches and might have to deal with some shaky outings from their starting pitchers, but they would utilize their power bullpen to make sure that they locked down the leads they carried through six innings.

Young Yankees fans now dealing with suffering — and older fans

There is a generation gap brewing in our midst, one that threatens to grow even wider and more divisive than the one that inspired the term in the first place back in the 1960s. Call it the Yankee Cred Gap. There is a generation-plus of Yankees fans who have known only one thing about the...

Exploring how MLB has turned Yankee Stadium against Yankees

What has given the Yankees such a home advantage for nine decades — the short right-field porch — is now a detriment. In the age of ever-expanding shifts, the Yankees’ lack of offensive diversification has made them arguably the most easily defended team in the majors. “It definitely hurts us,” general manager Brian Cashman admitted....

Yankees high-wire bullpen act leaves them destined for a fall

There is no doubt that New York Yankees reliever Dellin Betances is one of baseball’s best at his job. It could be argued that he, in spite of not accumulating the relatively meaningless “save” statistic, is the best reliever in baseball. The organization reluctantly admitted that he wasn’t going to succeed as a starter and gave him one last chance to make the club as a...

A good book with an interesting Yankees connection

I'm about one-third of the way through a book that deserves to be on your shelf next to "O Holy Cow." It's called "The Only Rule Is It Has to Work," by Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller, two self-described statheads besotted by sabermetrics, who last year or the year before acted as GMs of the Sonoma Stompers in a podunk independent (very) minor league.I've never been a huge fan of the...

Yankees Dormant Bats Cause for Slow Start

To say the New York Yankees have gotten off to a rough start would be an understatement. An 8-12 record currently has them sitting in last place in the American League East, and it’s not like they are throwing away games. The Bombers have been straight overmatched so for in the young 2016 season, and a lot of finger pointing from the fan base has resulted. People are calling out...

Joe Girardi doesn’t like the shift, but he uses the heck out of it

The growing angst in baseball appears to be directed at the use of the defensive shift and its increasing presence in the game. It seems the only people you hear complain about it are the ones who are affected the most by it in a negative way. Feel free to file New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi in that category. “It’s illegal defense, just like basketball,” Girardi said...

Is Jacoby Ellsbury running more?

The Yankees have been running like crazy to begin the year, and Jacoby Ellsbury seems to be spearheading this initiative. In fact, the only reason that Ellsbury isn’t tied for the Major League lead in steals is because Jose Altuve swiped two bags on Sunday. There is a narrative out there that Ellsbury has been less and less aggressive on the basepaths in recent seasons, and most...
