Game 21 Quick Recap: BOS 4 NYY 2

I didn't catch a second of this game and I'm really glad about that.  Feels like I've already said that 2 or 3 times this season.  That can't be a good thing.  Whatever, the Yankees aren't a good thing either.  They stink. - Masahiro Tanaka was a beast for the first 6 innings, holding the Red Sox lineup to 3 hits and no runs.  He tired in the 7th, put a few runners on, and...

How far can Yankees dig before they’re too far buried?

BOSTON — When does early become late? How low can a baseball team go before ultimately shrugging it off as much ado about nothing?

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...

Going to the Headley

Embed from Getty Images How bad have things become with Chase Headley? Men have a rather impolite saying when going to the men's room. Perhaps you have heard of, "Going to the Head." Lately, I have been saying that I am going to the Headley. And there is much about his first month of the season that sings the Ty-D-Bol theme song. His stats are clean, man, clean as a...

Starting a season 8-12 will get your attention, especially as you simultaneously try to win a championship and try to (let's call it what it is) rebuild following the departure of the Core Four.Such a stretch at any other time of the season can be looked at as a blip or a hiccup.

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 fits of nostalgia, human beings, especially pretentious ones, sometimes like to declare that they were “born too late.” This statement, on the surface, is usually completely and utterly idiotic. People tend to romanticize past eras because what survived of them is the best they have to offer. In reality they are clinging to particular aspects that appeal to them instead of...
