CC Sabathia threw 6 2/3 innings last night, giving up 3 ER on 8 hits while capturing his league-leading 15th win. He walked 0 and struck out 8. Although CC labored in the Fenway finale, tossing 118 pitches to Jose Molina, he was hurt by a couple of defensive miscues from Robinson Cano (one [...]
Below me, Steve has a nice writeup out detailing the struggles between A.J. Burnett and Jorge Posada, struggles which were on display in yesterday’s game against Boston. In terms of Burnett’s pitch selection, Posada and Burnett found it difficult to get on the same page, and the issue seemed to be a contributing factor [...]
If the Red Sox release John Smoltz, should the Yankees consider signing him?
I know the proposition may sound absurd after Smoltz’s brutal performance in the Bronx just a week ago, however, if he can be had at the pro-rated major league minimum then it seems like Smoltz could be useful. Right now, the [...]
-Still have goosebumps thinking about Friday’s Burnett/Beckett game. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing that match up again in October, assuming the Sox hold up their end of the bargain. I got a kick out of Alex throwing up his helmet, like a bouquet at a wedding. Melky did the same thing after one [...]
From Peter Abraham (LoHud):
Joe Girardi was in a weird mood after the game. He refused to say why he went to the mound to speak to Joba Chamberlain in the first inning. According to Chamberlain, it was to get the signs straightened out. I suspect it was more to keep Chamberlain and Posada [...]
No word on the price yet, but hopefully the Indians were able to extract some valuable players/prospects from Boston. The tweet is from Bob Nightengale, a USA Today writer. Of the big 3 of Halladay, Adrian Gonzalez, and Martinez, V-Mart would likely have had the lowest cost, and is not the same caliber player [...]
From Jon Heyman, not only do we learn that the Blue Jays have said to the Yankees and the Red Sox that they would rather not trade Roy Halladay within their division (not surprising news), we also learn that the Yankees tried to trade for Jeff Francoeur House of Fury movie [...]
Here’s Jonathan Papelbon discussing Mariano Rivera’s 500th save (via Lisa Winston):
“He’s been able to do it with consistency year in and year out, and that’s what’s really impressive, especially in the American League East,” said Papelbon, who has been named to the AL All-Star team in each of his three full big league [...]
In a game that lacked any of the usual intensity of Yanks-Red Sox due to the 2 1/2 hour rain delay, and some justifiably outraged fans not being let back in the stadium,the Yanks lost he game and more importantly, their catcher last night.
Hughes had a shaky outing, allowing 4 runs and 11 [...]
After having his scheduled start get rained out today against the Angels, Joe Girardi is opting to keep the young righthander in turn and start him in Monday’s game at the stadium vs Boston.
One day after being washed out from his scheduled start against the Angels, right-hander Phil Hughes gets an opportunity to [...]
