From Anthony McCarron (Daily News):
Despite his numbers, Matsui’s status with the Yankees is unclear. He is in the final season of a four-year, $52 million contract and the Yankees want to get younger and free up at-bats at designated hitter for Jorge Posada.
Matsui would not delve too deeply into his future Sunday.
From George King III (NY Post):
After Burnett was spanked for nine runs and nine hits in five innings Saturday in a 14-1 loss, Posada said the pair weren’t on the same page.
Suggesting Girardi assign Molina to Burnett is dicey since he is 1-0 with a 4.08 ERA in three games with Molina. [...]
Here are two interesting numbers for you:
91.9 and 91.4.
91.9 mph is the average velocity of Mariano Rivera’s fastball and 91.4 mph is the average velocity of Mariano’s cutter. These numbers are for this season and are noteworthy as they both signal a significant downturn in Rivera’s overall pitch velocity. In the past, [...]
I went into the woods for almost 3 months. When I left, Derek Jeter was slumping, Hideki Matsui was finished, A.J. Burnett was a busted contract, and the Yankees were trailing the Red Sox in the division. Things have changed.
One of the best parts about September (for me at least) is seeing who the [...]
On July 17th, I wondered about CC Sabathia’s declining strikeout rate, for it seemed like a significant problem. On that day, his K/9 was 6.66, a far cry from the 7.80 K/9 CC put up in 2007 and the NL-heavy 8.93 he put up in 2008. There wasn’t much of an explanation for [...]
I know the Yankees are a near-certainty for the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean I won’t still be rooting for them to win every game. I won’t relax until the Magic Number hits zero — once we reach that glorious point, I don’t care if they unretire Andy Hawkins for a handful of starts, [...]
-The Yanks have won 6 of the 7 games played against the Sox since Aug. 6, bringing the season series to 6-9. If the season ended today, the Division Series would be the Red Sox vs the Angels and the Yankees vs the Tigers. Detroit is clearly the weakest of the four teams and it’s [...]
CC Sabathia threw 6 2/3 innings last night, giving up 3 ER on 8 hits while capturing his league-leading 15th win. He walked 0 and struck out 8. Although CC labored in the Fenway finale, tossing 118 pitches to Jose Molina, he was hurt by a couple of defensive miscues from Robinson Cano (one [...]
Scranton beats Buffalo, 2-1
Jason Hirsh continued his impressive pitching, giving up a run on 6 hits in 6 innings of work, with 4 strikeouts. Since being acquired from Colorado, the 6’8″ righty is 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA, and 16 strikeouts against 4 walks in 21 innings. His one major problem is the flyball, [...]
