With Marcus Thames on the Yankees’ bench to start the season, despite a dreadful spring in which the 33-year old outfielder hit a dreadful .135/.182/.269 while striking out a team-leading 21 times, many were left wondering what role he would play. Would he be a late-inning pinch-hitter used only against left-handers, where his strong [...]
A few weeks ago, I wondered when the Yankees would choose to utilize Francisco Cervelli, the team’s defensively skilled backup catcher. “In 2009,” I wrote, “Jose Molina became A.J.

Andy went eight innings, allowing just four hits and three walks, while striking out four and surrendering only two runs.
It came early this year. Usually I get emails about the Yankees later in the season, sometimes as late as July. Today I got the first inside joke email of the year about the Yankees. My buddy ended it, “PS: The Yankees are on pace to win 121.5 games.” I responded appropriately: “Only 121.5?”
Yankee fans have themselves a dilemma these days. Happiness. The daily success and absence of drama in the Yankee season thus far has some fans in a pickle. A team that once wore the label “The Bronx Zoo” is now as serene as the New York Botanical Gardens on Fordham Road. [...]
