The Yankees send CC Sabathia to the mound tonight to face off against Francisco Liriano and the Twins. Sabathia has struggled over his last two starts, and looks to put together his first win of the season against one of the weakest offensive teams in baseball. The Twin’s Liriano has also [...]
Tonight at 7:05 pm EST, Francisco Liriano will take the mound in the second game of the Yankees v. Twins series. If you asked me where I thought Liriano would be at this point last year, I probably would have said the Yankees. After an incredibly strong 2.66 FIP performance in 2010, the [...]
Four years ago, the big story in baseball for a while was that Johan Santana was going to the Yankees. The best pitcher in the league for the past half-decade was on the market and the Yankees had the pieces to make a deal. Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, Austin Jackson, and [...]
How the mighty have fallen. Just a year ago Ubaldo Jimenez was as untouchable a player as there was in all of baseball. He posted back-to-back months with an ERA well below 1.00 in April and May, and many analysts were suggesting that he was the game’s best pitcher. He floundered in the [...]
Last year at the All-Star break I did a three-part series taking a look at the Yankees’ perceived areas of weakness and how the team might go about fixing each of them. This year I’ve condensed the “Areas of Need” series into two posts, as I’m not sure the team’s needs are as pressing [...]
Dan Menella of MLBTR posed an interesting question on Sunday that I wanted to throw out to our readers. Here it is:
Twins lefty Franciso Liriano is an intriguing potential trade candidate. It feels like he’s been around forever, but he’s just 27 and under team control through 2012, so he’s still [...]
A.J. Burnett gave the Yankees exactly what they needed on Thursday afternoon — 6 innings of two-run ball — and Joba Chamberlain, Rafael Soriano and Mariano Rivera once again came in to shut the door after Burnett departed, preserving a 4-3 Yankee victory over the Twins, [...]
Fifth and penultimate post in the series.
In 2008 and 2009, the A.L. Central produced a one game playoff. 2010 saw a more uneventful finish to the season, as the Twins won the division easily, besting the White Sox by [...]
One of the most common refrains I’ve been seeing in the wake of the recent Liriano rumors among Yankee fans is this. Why would the Twins do it? Here you have one of the top lefties in the game, on a contending team, why trade him if you’re trying to win? I must admit I’ve [...]
When rumors emerged that the Twins would be willing to give up Francisco Liriano for a package headlined by Joba Chamberlain or Ivan Nova, Yankees fans and Twins fans alike were incredulous. Such a deal sounds too good to be true, as most thought that [...]
