  • Game 26: Take the Series May 5, 2016
    The Yankees won last night! And they have a chance to win today! That is pretty cool, ain’t it? A win tonight will clinch a series victory over the Orioles too. The Yankees have played seven full series this season and they’ve won exactly two of them. They beat the Astros in the first series […] The post Game 26: Take the Series appeared first on River Avenu […]

  • Heyman: Yankees not among teams with interest in Tim Lincecum May 5, 2016
    Tomorrow free agent right-hander Tim Lincecum will hold a workout for scouts at the Giants’ Spring Training complex in Arizona. Lincecum is looking to show teams he’s at full strength following September hip labrum surgery. Jon Heyman says ESPN may televise the workout, which is, uh, odd. Almost every team in the league will attend […] The post Heyman: Yanke […]

  • More cutters and fewer four-seam fastballs have helped Sabathia regain some effectiveness in 2016 May 5, 2016
    Seven months ago CC Sabathia left Camden Yards and entered an alcohol treatment center. Last night Sabathia pitched in Camden Yards for the first time since rehab and he had his best start of the season, holding the Orioles scoreless over seven innings. Sabathia has been through it all as a baseball player. I’m sure […] The post More cutters and fewer four-s […]

  • Thoughts following Alex Rodriguez’s injury May 5, 2016
    A few hours prior to last night’s win the Yankees placed Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day DL with a right hamstring strain. He hurt himself running out a ground ball Tuesday night. Here’s the video. The injury comes at a bad time — don’t they all? — because A-Rod was just starting to heat up […] The post Thoughts following Alex Rodriguez’s injury appeared first […]

  • Sabathia stops the bleeding; Yanks snap six-game losing streak with 7-0 win over O’s May 5, 2016
    Now that’s more like it. The Yankees snapped their six-game losing streak Wednesday night with what was maybe their most complete win of the season.

  • DotF: Judge, Sanchez, and Refsnyder continue hot streaks in Scranton’s win May 5, 2016
    Some notes: RHP Matt Wotherspoon has been promoted from Double-A to Triple-A, reports Shane Hennigan. He’s from the Scranton area, so that’s cool. Wotherspoon has emerged as a sleeper because he’s throwing 94 mph with both a curveball and a slider. So far this season he has a 1.06 ERA (1.85 FIP) with a 33.3% […] The post DotF: Judge, Sanchez, and Refsnyder c […]

  • Game 25: Stage Three May 4, 2016
    I don’t know about you, but I think I’ve reached the third stage of grief over the Yankees being so unwatchably bad. I’ve already gone through denial (“It’s just a slump, they’ll be fine”) and anger (“Blow this crapfest up”), and now I’m in the bargaining phase. Just win a game, please? Score some runs, […] The post Game 25: Stage Three appeared first on Riv […]

The Bombers will return to the Bronx for a ten-game stretch of their own beginning this Friday, hoping to jump start the […] The post TiqIQ: Fresh Off Series Sweep, Yankees […]
