I like you and I really want you to succeed. In order to that today, you’ll have to keep the Detroit Tigers from hitting a boat load of home runs in Yankee Stadium. Now, in a lot of cases, when people expect the worst, things actually work out okay. So can you have that happen today? Can you shut them down and shock the hell out of us all? Because that would be really great.
You actually have done pretty well against the Tigers in the past and have held them to a .250 BA at Yankee Stadium. You have given up three home runs in 52 at bats. You’ve also held them to a .278 OBP and .423 slugging percentage.
You are capable of keeping them at bay. So please try. Let’s build on last night’s win. It feels like the Yankees haven’t won back-to-back games in about three years. Actually, it hasn’t happened in about a month – since July 11 and July 12 against the Royals and Twins.…
Happy What’s Wrong With Mo Week everyone!
The Yankees looked like they had a 3-1 victory wrapped up in the ninth inning until a two run home run by Miguel Cabrera with two outs tied the game at three.
Mariano Rivera blew his second save in two games and Yankee fans were distraught. Or maybe that was just me.
Thankfully, the Yankees won the game in the 10th on a Brett Gardner single with the bases loaded and two outs. Yes, the Yankees nearly wasted a bases loaded situation. And if they had, it just would have been a typical 2013 season disaster.
The big story aside from the game itself was the reception Alex Rodriguez would get from the home fans. It was mixed when he stepped into the box for his at bat – about 50/50 boos and cheers. After an 0-4, three strikeout performance, the boos were a lot more vociferous.
The other big story was Ivan Nova who was brilliant again lasting seven innings for the sixth start in a row.…
I’m not sure what the weather is like in the Bronx right now but the skies in Rockland County are menacing and dark. The thunder is beginning to rumble in the distance and
it looks like we’re seconds away from a downpour. It’s pouring right now.
So here we are, it’s August 9 and Alex Rodriguez is finally making his debut in front of the home crowd – weather permitting. The big angle to this ongoing saga is the “Will the home crowd boo A-Rod?” and people are making their predictions.
Here’s my prediction: Yes they will. They booed him before Biogenesis and they’ll continue to boo him.
Tonight, Ivan Nova faces off against Rick Porcello and the Tigers have rolled into New York on a 12-game winning streak. The odds are stacked against the Yankees right now. And I hate to be a fatalist but I can see a sweep at the hands of Detroit this weekend which would basically kill any chances the Yankees have of possibly making the playoffs.…
So Derek Jeter was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and while there Fallon and his house band The Roots came up with a few options for new walk-up music for Jeter to use at the Stadium when he comes back from the DL:
It’s obvious that he should choose song number three and the Roots should definitely release a full version of it.
I was a few weeks shy of my 9th birthday when I finally attended my first Yankee game(s).
At the time, I was extremely frustrated with my father for waiting so long to take me to Yankee Stadium. I assumed it was because I was a girl and that if his first born child had been male, he’d have been to a few games by then.
My dad made up for it in a big way by taking me to a single admission doubleheader in August 1983. The Yankees were scheduled to play the Toronto Blue Jays and on top of being able to see two games in one day, my dad also invited Joe, the boy I had a crush on to go with us, along with two of my other friends, Billy and John.
As a young girl, I led a double life, so to speak.…
