It only took until the 154th game of the season for Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira to finally go deep in the same game for the first time this year. And if that weren’t enough, both sluggers hit two home runs apiece, which is probably the first time [...]
In the past few seasons, position players, and outfielders in particular, who are good, but not elite, have declined in value in baseball. Yankee castoffs Bobby Abreu and Johnny Damon are examples. During the go-go years when very good players were getting $100 million contracts and good players were getting $60 million [...]
With their inactivity at the July 31st trade deadline and last night’s drubbing of Josh Beckett guaranteeing the Yanks a split of the four game series, it would be easy for Yankee fans to dismiss the 2010 Red Sox. The series has lacked its usual buzz, they’re 8 games back in [...]
Lance Berkman had 2 doubles on his 3 hit night while Derek Jeter passed Babe Ruth on the all-time hit list. The Yankees beat the Red Sox 7-2. A.J. Burnett was suffering from back spasms and was scratched for Dustin Moseley at the last minute. Burnett will pitch Tuesday.

Tonight, AJ Burnett and Josh Beckett will face off in the third game of the Yankees four-game series with the Red Sox. This will be the first time Burnett and Beckett matched up since last summer’s epic 15th inning game that ended with an Alex [...]

AJ Burnett has the reputation for being able to throw a no-hitter or a complete bomb every time he takes the mound. His stuff is excellent but often unpredictable. If he locates his fastball and can command his “hook”, as he likes to call it, then batters beware. If he can’t, then he sometimes gets [...]
On last night’s YES broadcast, much was made by Michael Kay in the 6th inning about how Josh Beckett seemed “disinterested” after the Gardner walk. That he was hitting batters intentionally to force Tito Francona’s hand and get him out of a game that he no longer wanted to compete in. This [...]
The Yankees beat the Red Sox 10-3 on Friday night, although it certainly didn’t look like a game that would end up with a stereotypical Fenway Park final score after the first three innings. Josh Beckett came out of the gate like a [...]
. . no, not for that silly 5th starter spot. Much more important than that.
The boys over at NoMaas.org have a winning selection for their sponsoring Josh Beckett’s Baseball Reference page. Here’s the link to the Josh Beckett Baseball-Reference page, and link to NoMaas for anyone who doesn’t immediately [...]
