  • How A-Rod became the Yankees’ best hitter April 21, 2015
    There are few people who could have predicted Alex Rodriguez would be the leader or co-leader on the Yankees in batting average, on-base percentage, Wins Above Replacement, OPS, runs, RBI and homers – and arguably the team MVP – after the first two weeks of the season (yes, despite his 0-fer on Monday). Heck, six [...] How A-Rod became the Yankees’ best hitt […]

  • Silver Lining: CC Sabathia shows he still has something left in loss to Tigers April 21, 2015
    The Yankees dropped last night’s series opener to the Tigers in a pretty annoying way — they jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, didn’t build on it, then watched as Detroit used some less than well struck balls to rally for two runs in seventh. An annoying loss, no doubt, but it’s still just [...] Silver Lining: CC Sabathia shows he still has something left in […]

  • DotF: Wade, Snyder, and Davis lead Tampa to blowout win April 21, 2015
    Both RHP David Palladino and LHP Fred Lewis have been placed on the DL, according to Matt Eddy. Not sure what’s wrong with either. Triple-A Scranton (4-3 win over Lehigh Valley in 15 innings, walk-off style) 15 innings! CF Slade Heathcott: 0-6, 1 BB, 2 K DH Ramon Flores: 2-6, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 [...] DotF: Wade, Snyder, and Davis lead Tampa to blowout win is a pos […]

  • CC pitches a big one but offense can’t support him as the Yanks fall 2-1 in Detroit April 21, 2015
    Well, that was disappointing. I was hoping that Yankees would either hold on to a 1-0 lead or score more insurance runs. But the Tigers scored two in the bottom of seventh and held on to that lead. The offense couldn’t show up and the winning streak got cut short at three. For shame. I CC-you, [...] CC pitches a big one but offense can’t support him as the Y […]

  • Game 13: Streakin’ April 20, 2015
    The Yankees have two nice little streaks going right now. One, they’ve won three straight games for the first time this season. Two, they’ve scored at least five runs in four straight games. The first streak is cool but not exactly rare. Even last year’s team managed eleven winning streaks of at least three games. [...] Game 13: Streakin’ is a post from: Riv […]

  • 4/20 to 4/23 Series Preview: Detroit Tigers April 20, 2015
    The Yankees have won four of the first six games of this ten-game road trip, but the last four games figure to be the toughest. They’re in Detroit tonight to start a four-game series against a Tigers team that has been the best in baseball in the early going this year. And in case you’re [...] 4/20 to 4/23 Series Preview: Detroit Tigers is a post from: River […]

  • Yankeemetrics: April 17-19 (Rays) April 20, 2015
    Back to the future, Part I Alex Rodriguez delivered a vintage performance in the series opener against the Rays, leading the Yankees to a 5-4 win at Tropicana Field. A-Rod was almost literally the entire Yankees offense on Friday night. Seriously. Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with four RBI and scored two runs; the rest of the [...] Yankeemetrics: April 17-19 (Rays […]

  • DotF: Mitchell and Lindgren lead RailRiders to a win April 20, 2015
    Bad news: LHP Ian Clarkin has elbow inflammation, assistant GM Billy Eppler told Josh Norris. Clarkin will be shut down for a few weeks. At least it’s not something more serious, I guess. This has already been a pretty tough year for injuries in the farm system. Triple-A Scranton (4-1 win over Syracuse) CF Ben [...] DotF: Mitchell and Lindgren lead RailRider […]
