October Playoff Moments: When Old Yankee Stadium Rocked!

I know what you’re thinking. It’s October and the New York Yankees are nowhere to be found. Fear not, I have the perfect elixir for the lack of postseason noise emanating from the Bronx, this postseason. Although Yankee Stadium II turned out the lights for good after the 2008 season, I reflect and list my top […]

Derek Jeter takes in Fenway his way (Photos)

There have been a few firsts and lasts for Derek Jeter on his farewell journey, including this candid look at the Captain taking a casual stroll through Fenway Park after yesterday’s loss to the Red Sox. I’m pretty sure this might be one thing he has never done before. Jeter is seen here walking the hallowed […]

Preview: Derek Jeter’s Curtain Call (9/28/14)

The legend comes to an end and Michael Pineda (4-5, 1.93 ERA) and Clay Buchholz (8-10, 5.31 ERA) get a front row seat. Pineda has come a long way since the pine tar incident against the Red Sox earlier in the year. His last time out he threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings holding the Orioles […]

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

One last captain curtain call

I feel bad for the poor bastards that just couldn’t hold it anymore. Thursday night, there had to be people that were at the stadium but in the bathroom when one of the unequivocally best things that has happened in the new Yankee Stadium took place. At the urinal or in the stall, perhaps washing […]

Yankees game 161: Red Sox rough up Tanaka, Yankees

Yankees get roughed up in an eight-run second inning as the season approaches the end.

Masahiro Tanaka (13-4, 2.47 ERA) makes his second start off the DL in the second to last game of the year against Joe Kelly (3-2, 4.00 ERA). Tanaka made his first start since July 8th and gave up just one run to the Blue Jays over 5 1/3 innings. Joe Girardi says he will be limited to […]

Yankees game 16): Yankees open final series with win

Chris Capuano went 6.2 in his final start of the season, allowing one unearned run, in victory.

Preview: Yankees at Red Sox (9/26/14)

Oh yeah, there’s three more games to go. No last night wasn’t the end of the season as much as some of us would like to think it was. Chris Capuano (1-3, 4.73 ERA) makes his last start of the year against his former team. He will take on Steven Wright (0-0, 3.38 ERA) in […]

Oh Captain, My Captain!

It was business as usual on February 12th as I sat in my office, doing work and occasionally checking out my Twitter feed. All was well in the world as baseball was right around the corner with pitchers and catchers getting ready to report to Spring Training. Hope was in the air for the 2014 […]

Thank You, Captain Jeter

It’s a rainy day in the Tri-State area. Very October-like. Today is supposed to be Derek Jeter’s final regular season game in pinstripes. While many fans would prefer a sunny, warm, fall-like day, perhaps it’s appropriate that it’s rainy, because today is a sad day. Let’s just hope Mother Nature cooperates enough to allow The […]

Derek Jeter Yankee Stadium Moments

These Jeter games, I’ve seen a few but still I face, the final countdown. As Derek Jeter readies to play his final home game at Yankee Stadium, along with a few more at Fenway Park, I thought it would be fun to embark on a journey of Jeter games I’ve witnessed in person. Not included […]

Preview: Jeter’s Last Home Game (9/25/14)

Hiroki Kuroda (11-9, 3.77 ERA) will make his final start of the year, and most likely his career, in Derek Jeter‘s last home game against Kevin Gausman (7-7, 3.57 ERA). Kuroda is coming off a strong performance against the Blue Jays throwing 6 2/3 innings to get to 11 wins for the fifth straight year. He allowed […]

Yankees game 158: Official elimination

Chase Headley and Mark Teixeira go deep but a difficult fourth inning for Shane Greene have eliminated the Yankees from postseason contention.

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

Yankees game 157: O’s scatter enough to beat Yankees

Despite 11 hits, the three home runs are the only ones that hurt Brandon McCarthy.

Preview: Yankees vs Orioles (9/23/14)

Brandon McCarthy (7-4, 2.54 ERA) has expressed interest in returning to New York next season, and why not, he has been quite successful since coming over from Arizona. But since he isn’t under contract after this year, this could possibly be his last start in the Bronx. He will take on Ubaldo Jimenez (5-9, 4.90 ERA) in […]

Preview: Yankees vs Orioles (9/22/14)

Michael Pineda (3-5, 2.15 ERA) makes his last home start of the year against Wei-Yin Chen (16-4, 3.58 ERA) and the playoff bound Orioles. Pineda made his first start off the DL against the O’s.
