The victory also lifted them to the magical .500 mark for the first time since April 14; that 35-game blip with a sub-.500 record was their longest such stretch since the middle of the 1995...

Cashman's Folly

Brian Cashman is King of  major league baseball garbage.Look at today's line-up for evidence ( culled from that pile in the photo ):1.  We have Austin Romine at first base.  Brian Cashman has treated this position like the NFLGiants ( who are always 6-10 now ) treat linebacker.  Not since Carl Banks ( now a grandfather, I think ) have the Giants used a top pick for a key player...

CC Sabathia is the only one pulling his weight for Yankees

Remember when CC Sabathia was supposed to be the weak link in the Yankees’ rotation? Instead, he’s looked like the ace of late, throwing up zeroes, now with the lowest ERA on the staff at 2.83. His renaissance continued Thursday afternoon against the Blue Jays in a 3-1 loss at the Stadium in which he...

Yankees release Slade Heathcott

The Yankees have given outfielder Slade Heathcott his unconditional release, the team announced this evening. The move clears a 40-man roster spot for lefty Richard Bleier, who was called up earlier today. I’m not quite sure how the mechanics of the transaction work, but my guess is the unconditional release makes it easier for the Yankees to re-sign Heathcott to a minor league...

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.

Throwing hard isn’t enough for Yankees

The fastball is the basic building block upon which all pitching is built. If you were to describe the act of pitching to an alien, or someone from Norway, you would probably say something to the effect of “the attempt to throw a ball hard into an imaginary box of sorts past someone trying to hit it with a bat”. That’s what a fastball is. You probably wouldn’t get into how...

The New York Yankees future is bright

At the beginning of the season, the New York Yankees seemed to be a team loaded with old washed-up players. They had just traded some of their most promising prospects to acquire Aroldis Chapman but had very little chance of going very far. Then, just a few weeks into the seasons, an array of injuries opened the door for some of the younger Yankees to move up and fill vacant spots...
