  • Yankees break out for three runs, beat Rays 3-2 September 18, 2014
    The Yankees scored three runs! And they won too! Games like Wednesday night’s have become way too rare for this team. Those three runs stood up thanks to the pitching staff and the Yankees were able to salvage the series finale against the Rays with a 3-2 victory. Three Runs! In the span of two […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogYankees br […]

  • Update: Carlos Beltran leaves Yankees to attend to family matter September 18, 2014
    10:10pm: Awful news. Beltran announced on Facebook that he and his wife lost their son. A newspaper report out of Puerto Rico says his wife had a miscarriage. “Everything happens according to God’s perfect timing, and my wife and I accept it that way. Thank you for all the messages of love,” said Beltran. Our […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees […]

  • Game 151: Retaliation? September 17, 2014
    Things got a little heated between the Yankees and Rays last night after Derek Jeter was hit by a pitch up high. Tampa has plunked several Yankees hitters in their last few meetings. Following the game, Joe Girardi and some players said they weren’t necessarily upset with getting hit, but where they were getting hit, […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York […]

  • Yankees’ current 2015 rotation options full of uncertainty September 17, 2014
    On Sunday, Masahiro Tanaka will get back on the mound and pitch in the big league game for the first time since the week before the All-Star break. It will be the biggest step in his rehab from a partially torn elbow ligament, and, really, the best case scenario is seeing that the ligament won’t […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogYankees’ […]

  • One way or another, Yanks will learn something about Tanaka’s elbow on Sunday September 17, 2014
    Yesterday afternoon the Yankees announced Masahiro Tanaka will make his (hopefully) triumphant return to the rotation on Sunday after more than two months on the shelf with a partially torn elbow ligament. Unfortunately the team is out of the postseason race, so there won’t be a fun “Tanaka comes back from his injury and leads […]Post from: River Ave. Blues […]

  • Yankees lose 6-1 to Rays after benches clear September 17, 2014
    It looks like we’re in for an ugly end to the season, doesn’t it? The Yankees are out of the postseason race and another weak game by the offense led to some frustration boiling over in the late innings on Tuesday. The Rays won the game 6-1. The Yankees have lost five of their last […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogYankees lose 6-1 to Ray […]

  • Game 150: Big Mike in Tampa September 16, 2014
    Michael Pineda is very familiar with the Tampa area. Big Mike spent the better part of the 2012-13 seasons at the team’s Spring Training complex while rehabbing from his shoulder surgery, so pitching in Tropicana Field — which is really across the bridge in St. Petersburg, not Tampa — should feel like a homecoming. Will […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New Y […]

  • Tanaka tentatively scheduled to return to rotation on Sunday September 16, 2014
    After more than two months on the shelf, Masahiro Tanaka will return to the rotation this weekend. Joe Girardi announced that his ace right-hander is tentatively scheduled to start this coming Sunday. He will be limited to 70-75 pitches. The Yankees will have to make a 40-man roster move to accommodate Tanaka coming off the […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A N […]

  • Five-game offensive skid buries any remaining postseason hope for Yankees September 16, 2014
    Let’s start with the obvious: the Yankees have struggled to score runs all season. This recent five-game skid is more of a 2014 skid than a five-game skid, though things have been especially bad since Friday. The Yankees have scored six runs total in their last five games, or one fewer run than the Angels […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blo […]

    12:05pm: The Yankees officially announced Prado is done for the year following the appendectomy. He has been placed on the 60-day DL and utility man Jose Pirela was called up. Pirela, 24, hit .305/.351/.441 (117 wRC+) with ten homers and 15 steals with Triple-A Scranton this year. He was due to become a minor league […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York […]
