So the Yankees draw the hottest team in baseball, the Minnesota Twins, in the American League Division Series. On paper, I still think the Yankees will crush this team, especially since they won’t have to deal with Justin Morneau, but the Twins have shown that they won’t go quietly, [...]
After an epic play-in game between the Twins and Tigers ended with the boys from Minnesota victorious, the Yankees will take on Joe Mauer and Co. in the ALDS. TYU will have plenty of coverage tomorrow, with a breakdown of the Twins roster, playoff predictions, and more, so stick around…….
Via Fangraphs, here are the final clutch scores for the 2009 Yankees:
Alex Rodriguez 0.91
Johnny Damon 0.80
Brett Gardner 0.36
Nick Swisher 0.05
Hideki Matsui -0.05
Jorge Posada -0.13
Melky Cabrera -0.40
Mark Teixeira -0.52
Derek Jeter -0.68
Robinson Cano -2.43
The Yankees have officially announced their selection of ALDS “Series A,” which will begin tomorrow at 6:07 pm. The series will last 8 days and the starting rotation will feature CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte, in that order (so Molina may be inline to start 2 postseason games, although I think Girardi [...]
In the spirit of recapping the games I attended during the 2009 season, I thought it might be fun to take a look at the Yankee playoff games I’ve been fortunate enough to attend over the years:
Year Game Opponent Starters Outcome 1995 ALDS 2 Seattle Pettitte v. Benes W, 7-5* 1996 ALDS 1 [...]
Over the last few weeks, one of the questions often bandied about by Yankees fans is, “Who will start Game 4?” With the Yankees selecting the longer first round series, this question only becomes relevant starting in the ALCS. While the options most bandied about have been Joba Chamberlain and Chad Gaudin, the Yankees do [...]
From Erik Boland:
ON IF TOLD WHO WILL CATCH AJ: “Molina’s probably going to catch A.J. (pause). So, that’s it.”
ON IF IT BOTHERS HIM: “I just hope we win that game, that’s all. That’s all I got to say.”
ON IF HE’LL DH THAT DAY: “I don’t know. Matsui’s our DH, so we’ll [...]
In his column this morning, Joel Sherman surprisingly sides with those of us who know better and acknowledges that A-Rod shouldn’t be blamed if the Yankees falter in the postseason again:
“And I am here to say it is about time that we all stop using A-Rod as a [...]
The 2009 season has been one of redemption and rebirth for Alex Rodriguez. It seems like the tense, controversial A-Rod has been replaced by a man comfortable in his own skin. This change has led some writers, such as John Harper, to predict big things from A-Rod in the coming postseason:
But I’m buying [...]
And best father ever, I might add.
Though I don’t have a photo of it, I’ll also be there tomorrow to watch our boys club Minnesota/Detroit in Game 1!
There’s really nothing better than heading up to Yankee Stadium on a cool October [...]
