The Yankees Are ( apparently ) Tired of Winning

I have never seen so many opportunities handed to the Yankees to blow this game open.  Even just now, bases loaded and one out, tie game, bottom of the 10th.Well, kiss it goodby now. Baltimore is too good to sit by and let us have another shot.  Jones and Machado will make us pay.  And how come their relievers are, of a sudden, better than ours?When we come to bat next, the game...

A Funny Thing Happened

It wasn’t supposed to go like this. The Yankees were supposed to be more fun to watch this year with a trio of young, exciting hitters in the lineup and a high-upside starter in the rotation. Then the starting shortstop got hurt. Then one of the trio got hurt. Then one of the trio started off the year terribly. But a funny thing happened: the fun kept coming and the Yankees began…winning...

At almost this exact time last season, I talked about how Luis Severino needed to widen the velocity gap between his fastball and at least one of his secondary pitches.
