With a 6 game lead in the AL East and a 4.5 game lead for the best record in the American League, its natural for fans to start looking forward to the playoffs, and wonder how the Yanks will stack up. The best way to do this is with looking at their likely opponents, and [...]
During the last Yankees-Red Sox tilt, the ESPN broadcast crew had an interesting discussion regarding expectations in NY and what makes a season a success. Steve Phillips contended that the expectations in NY are too high, and lamented the fact that anything other than a World Series championship for the Yankees would be branded a [...]
Jonah Keri recently providing his ranking of the top-10 all-time Yankee hitters. The list (with OPS+ added by me):
1 Babe Ruth (210 OPS+)
2 Mickey Mantle (172 OPS+)
3 Lou Gehrig (179 OPS+)
4 Joe DiMaggio (155 OPS+)
5 Yogi Berra (125 OPS+)
6 Derek Jeter (121 OPS+)
Here’s Bryan Hoch (MLB) on Nick Swisher’s defense:
Swisher has had a mixed bag of results in the outfield this season with the Yankees, turning in some splendid defensive plays along with a few bloopers — missed diving catches and air-mailed throws to the screen behind home plate among them.
Swisher said the sharp [...]
As Chris H posted yesterday, the Yanks have adjusted the innings limitations plan for Joba Chamberlain. Instead of giving him long stretches (6-8 days) between starts, the new plan calls for him working every 5 days, but limiting his innings in each start to the point where he won’t exceed the 165 IP target [...]
Despite the endless supply of rain, last night’s game was a definite treat. CC Sabathia threw 7 strong innings, striking out 10 ChiSox, in what was a remarkable ballgame. CC was dominant for most of the affair and only gave up 2 ER in the 7th inning (a product of the rain, perhaps). Conversely, [...]
From PA (LoHud):
Joba Chamberlain will be in the rotation moving forward, meaning he will pitch every five games. They decided he needed to pitch more regularly. The innings limit hasn’t changed. Some starts will be less than five innings.
So, if Abraham’s report is correct, Joba will remain on a regular schedule and [...]
With the frightening and awesome propensity the Yankees have shown for escorting baseballs off of the field of play this year, I can’t help but wonder if this could actually be construed as a BAD thing. Home runs = runs scored = cheering fans = excitement and exultation, so how could they possibly be bad? [...]
Here’s Joel Sherman (NY Post) on A.J. Burnett:
He will be 33 in January and likely will be coming off the first time in his career that he has put consecutive 30-start seasons together. Maybe he will still hurl 95 mph heat and devastating curves for a while longer. But what happens when there [...]
Matt Murton, of the Colorado Rockies, was DFA’d on Wednesday so that the Rox could make room for reliever Juan Rincon. Murton is an interesting player—he hit .321/.388/.489 in 86 minor-league games this season—and one that I’ve written about before.
Prior to joining the Rockies this year, Murton was with the Cubs and [...]
