In this experiment, the Red Sox will send out 2011 setup man Daniel Bard to face the Yankees this evening. Despite a horrendous ending to the 2011 season, Bard posted a 3.33 ERA, 2.96 FIP, 9.12 K/9, and 6.96 BB/9. The last time the UNC right hander started was 2007, where [...]
The Yankees take on the Red Sox’ left handed pitcher Félix Doubront this afternoon. The 24 year old Venezuelan hit the big leagues in 2010 for 3 starts and 9 relief appearances. In his first short 25.0 inning season he posted a 4.32 ERA, 4.12 FIP, 8.28 K/9, and 3.60 BB/9. Last year he returned [...]
This afternoon, the Yankees will face the 26 year old right handed Angel pitcher Ervin Santana. In 2003 (Johan Santana back then) and 2004 he was ranked as Baseball America’s #51 and #29 prospect in their annual top 100. The lanky pitcher made his debut in 2005 at 22 years old [...]
With Opening Day just two weeks away, the Yankees are closing in on decision-making time regarding their two open starter slots. At this point, I would be very surprised if Freddy Garcia did not win one of those spots, as he has the best track record of the candidates and would [...]
The response to my Cito Culver post earlier this week put an interesting question in my head. Here are the comments:
Richard Deegan: It’s about having people on the ground and getting into all corners, especially “home” (well, at least NY) turf. That’s how the Cards got The Man, while the Pirates dozed.
When the Yankees traded for Lance Berkman, many wondered whether they would give him a chance to hit against left-handed pitching, considering his deterioration in that area over the last few seasons. With a lefty-mashing player in Marcus Thames at his disposal, Joe Girardi has answered that question with an emphatic “no.” It seems pretty [...]
Later today, the Yankees will square off in a day/night double header.
In game one, Javier Vazquez will oppose Rick Porcello and in game two, Phil Hughes will face Jeremy Bonderman. Let’s examine how the Yanks’ opponents have done so far and see what the Yankees can do to counter Bondo and Porcello.

Twitter is an amazing tool for fans and bloggers, in that it provides access to people with expertise that many fans would not have had the ability to speak with in the past. [...]
According to Tom Krasovic of FanHouse (props to RAB), next Tuesday, the Yankees will announce the hiring of former Padres GM, Kevin Towers. Towers will serve as a special scouting assistant to his friend, Brian Cashman, and will begin working in that capacity following his introduction. A good baseball brain, Towers will be [...]
Yesterday, I posited a theory whereby Robinson Cano’s struggles with men on base and his poor 2008 season could be explained by his attempt to pull everything, and attributed his 2009 success with taking pitches middle-away the other way. Soon after I finished writing that post, Jeremy Greenhouse of The Baseball Analysts posted
