Triple-A Scranton (5-3 loss to Durham) CF Ben Gamel: 0-4, 1 BB, 1 K RF Aaron Judge: 0-5, 2 K — he’s 7-for-49 (.143) with a 30.9% strikeout rate in his last 13 games DH Nick Swisher: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 K — think he heard Dustin Ackley‘s going to miss an extended period of time? 1B Chris Parmelee: 2-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB — I repeat: think he heard Dustin Ackley’s going to...

Game 50: Memorial Day

I don’t know about you, but a night game on Memorial Day just feels wrong. Blame Canada, I guess. The Yankees are in Toronto for three games this week, the first of which they’ll play tonight. The Blue Jays won two of three in the first two series of the season between these clubs. It would be nice if the Yankees could reverse that this time around. Here’s the Jays’ lineup...

Yankees Make One Hit Stand Up In Series Win Against Tampa Bay

Yankees announcer Ken Singleton has been known to say that every major league team will win 60 games and lose 60 games over the season, and it’s what they do over that middle 60 or so games that makes the difference between playoff bound teams and those left on the outside looking in. Sunday’s series winning game against the Tampa Bay Rays must have been one of the 60 that the...

PETERSBURG, Fla. — Mark Teixeira may not be completely over the neck spasms that hampered him last week, but with the possibility of Dustin Ackley landing on the DL, the switch-hitting first baseman might be forced back into the lineup Monday night against the Blue Jays in Toronto. “I am in there [Monday] now,...

Game 48 Recap: Bad Mike

As excruciating as April was for the Yankees, there’s no denying that the clouds have parted quite a bit this May. They’re playing better baseball. The bullpen has been as dominant as advertised. The offense that looked so defeated through the season’s first four weeks has come alive in the ones since. Even the starting pitching has been pleasantly surprising with strong rebounds...

A close up look at CC Sabathia’s May

CC Sabathia did something against the Blue Jays on Thursday that hadn’t been done in over 975,000 box scores since 1913: He pitched seven innings, gave up two runs—zero earned—on two hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. He unfortunately was saddled with the loss thanks to the defense behind him and to the Yankees’ offense which was stymied by J.A. Happ to the tune of...

Matt Bush Nearly Has Aroldis Chapman’s Fastball

This is a post about the similarities between Matt Bush and Aroldis Chapman on the baseball field. On the baseball field. Which, really, it’s remarkable that any similarities exist at all, given Matt Bush was first a shortstop, and then incarcerated, and has only since been pitching professionally again since April of this year. Seriously. April 7, 2016 was his first professional...

Wade Boggs wears Yankees World Series ring at Red Sox ceremony (pic)

It will be difficult to determine short of the MLB great confirming it one way or another whether it was an intentional slight or not, but the fact that Wade Boggs wore the World Series ring he earned as a member of the New York Yankees to a ceremony at Fenway Park probably won’t sit well with Red Sox Nation.
