A road map for the Yankees if they truly stink

What is the panic button exactly? Really, I want to know what it is and then I want to know its value. There has been much discussion of whether the Yankees need to press such a thing. To what end? Now is not time for panic or – worse – the kind of maneuvers panic...

Should the New York Yankees Consider Moving on from Manager Joe Girardi?

The New York Yankees have fallen to six games behind first place with an 8-15 record after the team was swept by the Boston Red Sox this past weekend. The Yankees production at the plate and pitching has been extremely poor and the team is not showing much energy going into each game. The Yankees must consider a change whether it is coaching or players, but a move that would surely...

The Yankees could use a 2005-esque shake-up, but they don’t have a lot of options

Eleven years ago the Yankees had a truly miserable start to their season. They opened the 2005 season by losing 19 of their first 30 games and falling nine games back in the AL East. Nine back after 30 games! Needless to say, fans were pretty uneasy because that slow start followed the 2004 ALCS collapse. It was not a good time around these parts. No siree. The 2005 Yankees rebounded...

How Derek Jeter and Yankees helped N.J. breast cancer survivor

Wayne, N.J. native Renee Heine says Yankees "gave me the chance to relax and enjoy time not thinking about cancer." Life as Yankees fanatic Renee Heine knew it forever changed in April 2012. Being diagnosed with breast cancer will do that. The Wayne, N.J. native was just 37 at the time. Yankees mailbag: Time to sit Chase Headley? The next four...

Thin Hope And Acceptance

The 2016 season of the New York Yankees has not gone well. Those of us who watch the games every day have a sense of doom every inning, every pitch, every at-bat and every bullpen decision. Nothing has gone right and everything has gone wrong. Joe Girardi's body language in the dugout looks like a man being leeched by some 19th Century doctor. For this generation of Yankee fans,...

New York Yankees Stock Up/Down After April

Stock Down: All But “One” The New York Yankees number one pitcher, Masahiro Tanaka, has been the only consistently solid starting pitcher for New York this season.  Tanaka is the only pitcher on the Yankees with an ERA under three and he’s done so against some pretty talented teams so far. Here are the remaining four pitchers and their accompanying ERAs thus far: 1. Nathan...

Taking time integral to Severino's improvement

As Luis Severino prepares to take the ball on Tuesday against the Orioles in Baltimore, tasked with snapping the Yankees' five-game losing streak, the right-hander believes that better management of his mound tempo will be the key in getting his 6.86 ERA under control.

Yankeemetrics: Stump Merrill’s Revenge

Two is not enough The series opener in Boston played out like a recurring nightmare for the Yankees this season: get an early (albeit small) lead, miss out on countless scoring chances to build that lead, and lose. The 4-2 loss was the ninth time this season that the Yankees lost despite holding a lead at some point in the game. Through Friday, that was the most “blown losses...

A Different Kind Of Deja Vu

I have to confess that I temporarily lost my mojo last night.The Yankees kept giving up the lead and getting it back.  The Yankees were scoring some runs.A-Rod looked like the 27 year old version ( except, of course, he didn't play defense ) of the man.My probability formula was not designed to deal with a calculation involving more than 2 runs for the Yankees.Time for an adjustment...

Three Thoughts About A Five Game Yankees Losing Streak

These thoughts remain from the Yankees' frustrating weekend series, during which they were swept by their division rival, the Boston Red Sox:First, even though it's only the first week in May and there are still well over 100 games left in the season, it’s starting to feel like, to paraphrase the late Yogi Berra, it’s getting late early out here. To be clear, I’m still in...

Alex Rodriguez dries bat on crotch

After spending years in the league, it appears New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez may have found a new plate routine to get him going. His bat looked to be a bit moist during an at-bat in the third inning of the game, so he fixed the problem. How’d he do it? By drying the bat on his manhood zone. Sure enough, it worked. He blasted a two-run homer later in the at-bat. [Larry Brown Sports]

New York Yankees: 3 down for April

The New York Yankees entered the 2016 season without the weighty expectations of teams like Toronto, Houston, and Kansas City. In fact, many viewed that making the playoffs, even as a wild card, would constitute a successful season. Armed with a loaded back end of the bullpen and solid defenders, the Yanks seemed to have a chance to be relatively competitive this season. At 8-14...

Yankees Dormant Bats Cause for Slow Start

To say the New York Yankees have gotten off to a rough start would be an understatement. An 8-12 record currently has them sitting in last place in the American League East, and it’s not like they are throwing away games. The Bombers have been straight overmatched so for in the young 2016 season, and a lot of finger pointing from the fan base has resulted. People are calling out...

Joe Girardi doesn’t like the shift, but he uses the heck out of it

The growing angst in baseball appears to be directed at the use of the defensive shift and its increasing presence in the game. It seems the only people you hear complain about it are the ones who are affected the most by it in a negative way. Feel free to file New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi in that category. “It’s illegal defense, just like basketball,” Girardi said...

How Nathan Eovaldi put it all together

Writers have spent countless words trying to crack the code on the mystical Nathan Eovaldi—he of all the talent and none of the results. Nasty Nate’s nickname holds true when looking at the stuff alone, but everything he does has a caveat that has stopped him from becoming one of the better pitchers in the league: his blazing-fast-but-straight fastball, his nasty-but-inconsistent...

Is Jacoby Ellsbury running more?

The Yankees have been running like crazy to begin the year, and Jacoby Ellsbury seems to be spearheading this initiative. In fact, the only reason that Ellsbury isn’t tied for the Major League lead in steals is because Jose Altuve swiped two bags on Sunday. There is a narrative out there that Ellsbury has been less and less aggressive on the basepaths in recent seasons, and most...
