Surprise defeats Mesa, 7-3
Zach Kroenke gave up 3 hits in 2 shutout innings, and struck out 1. Grant Duff walked 1 in a scoreless inning of work. Brandon Laird was 1 for 5 with a 3-run shot and 3 strikeouts. Laird is hitting .625 in AFL play so far, albeit in a very small [...]
On the five-year anniversary of the Yankees’ last ALCS victory and the sixth anniversary of the Aaron Boone walkoff home run, the Yankees beat the Angels in Game 1 of the 2009 American League Championship Series 4-1, behind a stellar outing from starter Carsten Charles Sabathia.
When you can get 45,000+ fans all chanting your name in a LCS in your first year in New York, you’re obviously doing something right.
Yeah, I don’t know about you, but I’d say that new guy did pretty [...]

Here are two quick news items as we await a perfect game from CC Sabathia.
Steve Swindal, the one-time son-in-law of George Steinbrenner (he and Jennifer Steinbrenner were married and then divorced), and former general partner/chairman of Yankee Global Enterprises LLC, is opening a baseball academy in the Dominican Republic. Swindal and J. Steinbrenner [...]
Here’s a quick starting pitcher breakdown:
The gray highlights indicate the perceived advantage. This advantage is based on the pitcher’s regular season numbers, although I have factored in oppositional history, as well, albeit marginally. Therefore, CC is better than Lackey (he can dominate any lineup, regardless of his season numbers against LA), Burnett [...]
Here are 3 quick items on the day:
Jon Heyman (SI) outlines the possible causes for A-Rod’s resurgent October. Ben Reiter (S) notes the 5 keys which underpin the Angels-Yankees matchup. Mariano Rivera missed a few workouts this week due to an undisclosed personal issue. He did, however, manage to throw 25-30 [...]
Let’s take a look at the Yankees-Angels matchup from a defensive standpoint. I’ve compiled data regarding outfield arm runs (ARM), double play runs for infielders (DPR), range runs (RngR), error runs (ErrR), ultimate zone rating (UZR), and ultimate zone rating per 150 defensive game (UZR/150). Each figure represents runs above or below (-) average. For [...]
As we have mentioned several times on this blog, Mike Scioscia has tapped Joe Saunders to pitch Game 2 of the ALCS, with fellow lefty Scott Kazmir going in Game 4. This seems like a strange decision, one that I keep trying to figure out to no avail. The two pitchers have had similar 2009 [...]
Although the MSM is going to beat us to death about the fact that the Angels have owned the Yankees in the postseason, let’s look at some facts….
Wow. So we have one player who was on the 2002 Angels on the 2009 Angels (John Lackey). And we have four players who [...]
