  • Yankeemetrics: A Ray of Hope [May 27-29] May 30, 2016
    Super Hiro A couple veteran sluggers made sure that the Yankees wouldn’t waste another pitching gem in Friday night’s series opener at Tampa Bay. Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran both homered in support of another brilliant performance by Masahiro Tanaka, leading the Bronx Bombers to a 4-1 win over the Rays. Tanaka took a perfect […] The post Yankeemetrics: […]

  • Castro’s home run rescues the Yankees from no-no, leads to a 2-1 win over the Rays May 30, 2016
    As Drake said, that went from 0 to 100 real quick. The Yankees were no-hit for 6.1 innings by Rays starter Jake Odorizzi, but Starlin Castro‘s two-run homer gave them a lead for good. Nathan Eovaldi was awarded with a win for his good outing and the Yankee bullpen arms did their thing to shut […] The post Castro’s home run rescues the Yankees from no-no, lea […]

  • DotF: Luis Severino throws three scoreless innings in first rehab game May 30, 2016
    Two quick notes: IF Deibinson Romero has been released, according to Shane Hennigan. The move clears a roster spot for RHP Brady Lail, who was technically called up from Double-A Trenton. Lail never actually left Scranton though. He was between starts and it was a paper move to temporarily clear a roster spot for LHP […] The post DotF: Luis Severino throws t […]

  • Game 49: Rubber Game May 29, 2016
    By my quick count, the Yankees have played 12 three-game series this season, and even with that recent 13-7 stretch, they’ve won only four of those 12 series. Yikes. Today’s rubber game with the Rays is a chance for series win No. 5, and also a chance to get back within a game of .500. […] The post Game 49: Rubber Game appeared first on River Avenue Blues. […]

  • Looking Ahead May 29, 2016
    There comes a day when you rectify the team you are with the team you want to be; the Yankees can’t seem to make the two things coexist. On the good side of things, the Yankees lead the American League in both strikeout percentage and walk rate from the mound. They’ve also got a respectable […] The post Looking Ahead appeared first on River Avenue Blues. […]

  • Pineda pounded yet again, Yankees fall 9-5 to Rays May 29, 2016
    Source: FanGraphs Man I hope this season doesn’t turn into a series of “the Yankees are trying to get back to .500″ games, but I fear that’s where they’re heading. They lost Saturday afternoon’s game 9-5 to the Rays to fall to 23-25 on the season. It’s a Saturday, so let’s recap with bullet points: […] The post Pineda pounded yet again, Yankees fall 9-5 to R […]

  • Game 48: Start A New Winning Streak May 28, 2016
    Last week, the Yankees dropped two straight games to the Diamondbacks and it turned out to be nothing more than a hiccup. They won six straight games after that. The Yankees are trying to do that again. They dropped two straight to the Blue Jays but rebounded to win last night. Time to keep winning […] The post Game 48: Start A New Winning Streak appeared fi […]
