Letter to the Editor: Not happy with management

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle (New York)September 15, 2015 Tuesday  Dear Editor, I am a Yankees fan who has dutifully watched every game available to me on TV this year up to the culmination of their inevitable season demise this weekend at the hands of Toronto. Anyone could have sealed this weekend's results in an envelope thirty days ago. It is now time to place the blame...

Should CC Sabathia start the Wild Card game for Yankees?

Over the past three seasons, CC Sabathia has gone from being a perennial All-Star and Cy Young award contender to a cross your fingers and hope for the best fourth or fifth starter for the New York Yankees. Sabathia’s demise had been predicted for years. Six-foot, seven-inch pitchers whose girth only possibly stops short of 300 pounds are not supposed to be workhorses into their...

Yankees catcher has great quote about celebrating (video)

The New York Yankees clinched a wild-card berth and earned their 10,000th win in franchise history with a 4-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night. Clinching a spot in the playoffs is something the Yankees haven’t done since 2012, and fans will be happy to see them playing meaningful baseball in October once again. They are in great position to host the AL Wild Card...

Yankees kick it old school as they win a spot in the postseason

It's funny. I've found this Yankee team very hard to watch this week. Until last night, when they finally clinched their Wild Card spot. Their shenanigans after the game made me very happy. Not only were they enjoying the champagne celebration for their postseason entry (and their 10,000th win, as it turn out!) but they even had the rookies (and Masahiro Tanaka) dress like old-school...

Yankees' Postseason Berth: Stuff of Nightmares Or Glimmer of Hope?

Inexplicable seems to be the word that best describes the Yankees effort during the 2015 season. Just when you think you've got something going...... And the thought just trails off, unfinished and unfulfilled. Except that the Yankees somehow made the playoffs. So there is still light at the end of the tunnel, though many believe it is the headlight of a locomotive bearing down...

John Ryan Murphy delivers great quote during Yankees’ celebration

John Ryan Murphy delivered a fantastic quote as his New York Yankees celebrated clinching a playoff spot Thursday night. “I don’t really know how to react, but so far so good. I think everyone’s been on the same page, and that page is drinking,” the catcher deadpanned. It's always better when you deliver a great...Read More

Joe Girardi concerned about A-Rod being fatigued

Alex Rodriguez is starting to come to life after a dreadful August, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi is still concerned about him. In fact, Girardi is worried that the 40-year-old DH might be fatigued. “There are some concerns there of fatigue, of course,” manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday via “But we need him now.”...Read More

Yankees fan caught sleeping by ESPN has $10 million lawsuit dismissed

America is a country of great freedom and great frivolous lawsuits.  Perhaps the most frivolous of all frivolous lawsuits was filed last year by Yankees fan Andrew Rector.  In July 2014, he sued ESPN, MLB, the Yankees, et. al. for being televised falling asleep at a Yankees game.  Oh, and the lawsuit was for TEN MILLION DOLLARS. Let’s relive the video clip, shall we? I’m...

Stephen Drew makes all his money in right field

There is an inherent opportunism to writing that I occasionally find a bit uncomfortable. Often I find myself cheering for specific outcomes because they would make a long-standing idea of mine become timely. If I’m dying to write something about Alex’s Rodriguez’s opposite-field power and he puts one out to right field it won’t make or break a story, but it’s a nifty...

Yankees fan who botched catching three balls speaks

The regular season can't end too quickly for these stumbling, backpedaling Yankees.

Tonight, presumably, somebody will lose somewhere, and Yankee Stadium will finally erupt in cheers, as the Evil Army topples backwards into the 2015 Wild Card game. What a disaster. This should be a night of celebration. What a disaster.Other teams are making their final drive - the Redsocks look like next year's Blue Jays - while the old, tired and bloated Yankees drunkenly...

How big is tonight’s start for Yankees’ Tanaka?

Suggesting that Game 158 for the New York Yankees is big when the postseason is within grasp, is certainly not an overstep in narrative. But, Masahiro Tanaka’s performance lamented as the be-all and end-all game of the season is pushing the dialogue a bit.Masahiro TanakaPhoto credit: Keith Allison via FlickrSurely, Tanaka’s Wednesday night start against the Boston Red Sox is...

Don’t let the ERA fool you, Dellin Betances is dropping off

Dellin Betances isn’t just extraordinary, he’s unique. The 27-year-old has unparalleled size, a breaking ball that defies categorization, and he’s thrown 16 2/3 more innings than any other reliever in the majors over the last two years. On the surface his success is easy to understand. He throws hard, he misses bats and he’s durable. Right now he’s the closest thing to...

JABO: What’s Wrong With Jacoby Ellsbury?

When the New York Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year, $153 million contract before the 2014 season, the team was certainly hoping for a version of the 2011 center fielder: a speedy, defensively-sound player with serious power upside. A prevalent thought was the short porch in Yankee Stadium’s right field might help him regain some of his power after injury-marred seasons...

Parade of Lefties Continues To Frustrate Yankees

The Yankees have faced four left-handed starting pitchers in the last five games. The results have been mixed and frustrating all around. The frustration continued last night, as Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez held them to one run over six innings, while Ivan Nova teased fans for six innings before turning into his usual inconsistent self. One bright spot last night was the...
