The roughly 24-hour period of time from last Thursday night to last Friday night was right up there with the most emotional moments I’ve had as a Yankee fan. The initial breaking story of Mariano Rivera being carted [...]
Yankee fans were blindsided yesterday by the news that Mariano Rivera tore his ACL while shagging fly balls in his customary pre-game routine. The video of the injury and the emotional postgame interview were both very difficult to watch, as the devastation on Mariano’s face was evident, along with the uncertainty about his [...]

Just saw the replay of Mariano hitting the wall. He looked like he was in a LOT of pain.

The news about Michael Pineda’s labrum injury prompted a lot of doom-and-gloom predictions that he may never be the same pitcher again. In my post from this morning, I looked at a number of cases of pitchers who had labrum surgery, to compare their successes and outcomes. One of the most notable successes was Curt [...]
After all the hand-wringing about Michael Pineda‘s velocity this spring, and his subsequent sidelining with shoulder pain/weakness, we finally have a resolution. Unfortunately, the resolution was not a positive one, as a dye-contrast MRI found that Pineda had a torn right anterior labrum (a ligament that goes around the socket of the shoulder). [...]
In an effort to prevent a stream of obscenities from flying from my fingertips to your screen, I will let Twitter tell the story.
It is worth noting that Erik Bedard, Chris Carpenter, Trevor Hoffman, Jon Rauch, Jason Schmidt, and Casey Janssen had similar surgical procedures … and came back with [...]
Mark Feinsand spoke to Yankee manager Joe Girardi this afternoon, who shed some light on how the Yanks will approach Michael Pineda’s injury and the rotation going forward. Here’s the quotes, via Mark’s twitter account:
Girardi comparing Pineda injury to Hughes last year: “I think we’re going to be patient with this, just like [...]
Twitter and the interwebs seemed to explode last night after Michael Pineda’s poor start and subsequent admission of “soreness” in the back of his shoulder. This all but ends the Spring Training battle for the 5th starter’s spot in the rotation, due both to his abysmal performance last night (with Brian Cashman and Billy Eppler [...]
The Joba Chamberlain ankle injury saga has been an interesting case study for how the media tend to respond to serious injuries (I’m going to ignore the excessive media moralizing about how trampolines are deathtraps, and therefore going on one is incredibly irresponsible). The immediate reaction was that Joba’s injury was quite possibly [...]
“He’s facing a lot right now,” Cashman said. “I can’t tell you, really, anything more than something unfortunate happened. We’re in the very early information side of this thing.”
The somber tone of yesterday’s Yankee camp reflected the news of a gruesome injury to a well-liked teammate. We can question the wisdom of [...]
