  • Yankees lose Nova, dignity in 16-1 loss to Rays April 20, 2014
    Source: FanGraphs Does this game really need a recap? I’m not quite sure what there is to say after a beatdown like that. The Yankees got buried by the Rays on Saturday night, allowing 16 runs on 16 hits and five walks. Five of those hits were homers, including two by Wil Myers and two […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogYankees lose Nova, […]

  • Game 18: Start A New Streak April 19, 2014
    The five-game winning streak came to an end last night thanks to a rather spectacular bullpen meltdown. Oh well. That’s going to happen from time to time. The Yankees have lost consecutive games just twice this season — first two games to the Astros then two games to the Orioles — and to avoid their […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogGame […]

    According to Chad Jennings, infielder Scott Sizemore confirmed he has a minor league option remaining. That could come into play when Mark Teixeira is activated off the 15-day DL, either tomorrow or in the coming days. Since he was called up to the MLB team, the May 1st (and August 1st) opt-out in Sizemore’s contract […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York […]

  • On chemistry and the new-look Yankees April 19, 2014
    Interesting quote from CC Sabathia tonight: “I think the chemistry on this team is really good as opposed to the past couple of years.” Hm. — Daniel Barbarisi (@DanBarbarisi) April 18, 2014 When I read that quote, my first thought was that Sabathia was talking about Alex Rodriguez. How could you not think that? Were […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York […]

  • Bullpen melts down in 11-5 loss to Rays April 19, 2014
    Source: FanGraphs It was bound to happen eventually. The Yankees came into Friday’s game with five straight wins and the bullpen with 17 consecutive scoreless innings.

  • Update: Phelps okay after being hit by line drive April 19, 2014
    11:14pm: Phelps is fine, Joe Girardi confirmed after the game. I imagine he’s a little sore, but he’s not actually injured. 10:03pm: David Phelps left tonight’s game after being hit by a line drive in the right side, pretty much right in the ribs. Matt Thornton was brought in to replace him and it appears […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blo […]
