Angels manger Mike Scioscia announced his playoff rotation today, and it’ll be John Lackey in Game 1, Joe Saunders in Game 2, Jered Weaver in Game 3, and Scott Kazmir in Game 4. While LA has opted for a 4-man rotation, the Yankees seem to be leaning towards a 3-man, which would pit Lackey [...]
From Jon Heyman (SI):
AL Executive of the Year
1. Brian Cashman, Yankees: The big-money moves all worked (Teixeira, Sabathia and A.J. Burnett), and so did the small-money moves (Eric Hinske and Jerry Hairston)
Brian Cashman put together a winner this offseason. Sure, for the most part, his success was built upon the [...]
When he says “Born to Play”, apparently he means the blame game. Red Sox 2nd baseman Dustin Pedroia took aim at the Fenway park infield and groundskeepers in explaining a costly miscue that happened in Sunday’s Angels-Red Sox ALDS game. He said:

Justin Bopp over at Beyond the Box Score has attempted to explicitly visualize UZR/150 through what he calls the “UZR TargetView method.” I think it’s an excellent idea, as defensive metrics are often difficult to consume numerically. Thus, a graphical depiction would appear to be ideal in today’s very visual society. However, while I [...]
Thus goes the great line from the cult classic (does it qualify as a cult classic?) Highlander. The same motif applies for this World Series. So what’s the deal with these deluded Angels fans saying that their side is a “team of destiny”. Huh? Everyone knows that the YANKEES are the team of destiny. There [...]
Alex Eisenberg of Baseball Intellect has some video analysis of Joba Chamberlain, the Yankees’ enigmatic young hurler. He tries to compare Joba’s mechanics this season to those he used in 2008, to see if they could explain his lowered velocity this season (92.5 mph avg. fastball velocity in 2009, compared to 95 in [...]
Yankee fans are all too aware of the team’s postseason history with the Angels in the first round of the playoffs. However, the Yankees and Angels have never before squared off in the American League Championship Series, and small sample sizes (a mere nine games that were played four and [...]
MLB.com has the pitching match ups for the upcoming Yanks-Angels ALCS, and has Joe Saunders listed as probable for Game 2, facing Yankee right hander AJ Burnett.
I’ll have to admit, this leaves me a bit perplexed. Angels manager Mike Scioscia has stated he wants to pitch a lefty at Yankee Stadium, to [...]
