Last night’s game was frustrating, maddening, and pathetic to watch. The Yankees’ offense, which had been the bane of the team’s existence for most of this young season, actually broke out in a good way in Fenway Park against Red Sox starter David Price, but Nathan Eovaldi decided to follow up his near no hitter performance in Texas last week with a positively dreadful performance in Fenway that ruined the Yankees’ chances of snapping a four-game losing streak, and instead, extended it to five. The Good Alex Rodriguez is suddenly not dead, you guys! It’s amazing how 35 plate appearances Continue reading About Last Night: The good, the real ugly, and what’s wrong with Betances?

An extensive number of articles have been written about the construction of the New York Yankees’ bullpen leading into the season and in most of them, they’ve made mention of the appearance of the ternary of Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller, and Aroldis Chapman and how it would mean bad things for opposing batters. Yesterday afternoon against the Seattle Mariners, Yankee fans finally saw what two of the three ternary members are capable of when the Yankees’ starter lasts through the seventh and has handed them a lead going into the eighth inning. To say it was incredible would almost be an Continue reading About Last Night: Betances and Miller. Holy s%^&!
Your browser does not support iframes. Alex Rodriguez‘s 689th home run not only snapped an 0-19 skid, but it helped the Yankees win today’s game, stave off a three-game sweep at the hands of the Seattle Mariners and it helped avoid an overall five-game losing streak. Phew! Other good stuff from today’s much needed win: Masahiro Tanaka became the first Yankees starter this season to pitch through the seventh inning. Coming into today’s game only the Yankees, Reds, and Marlins were among that elite club of ineptitude. Tanaka gave up three runs on six hits in those seven innings and Continue reading Game 11 Quick recap: Yankees 4, Mariners 3
Today is a big day in Japan. Five years after they were teammates in Japan Masahiro Tanaka and Hisashi Iwakuma will become the first former teammates from Japan to start against each other in the majors. They were matched up against each other back in 2014, but that game was rained out. Today’s contest will be airing at 2:05 a.m. over in Japan and a big audience is expected to tune in. As for what’s happening here in the states, the Yankees are trying to avoid getting swept by Seattle and also trying to avoid a five-game losing streak overall. Their last win was Continue reading Game 11: Try not to get swept, thanks
Thanks to Mother Nature acting like it’s February instead of April, tonight’s game in Detroit has been postponed. The makeup date is July 28 according to Marly Rivera. So now the Yankees have two off days before starting their series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday and that’s a good thing for everyone, I think.
Our long national nightmare is over, Alex Rodriguez finally got a base hit. In fact, he hit two! Entering yesterday’s game, A-Rod was 2-10 with three walks and was not looking great at the plate. This, of course, led to some people, mostly dunderheads on Twitter, declaring his career over because as we all know, everything about a baseball season, and a player’s future performance, should be based upon a handful of at bats. But I digress. Here’s Alex’s spray chart for the day. Those are the three balls he hit yesterday—the two line drives were his singles. Next up, Continue reading About Last Night: Alex Rodriguez finally gets a hit
