Time to Cash Out

The Yankees have given Brian Cashman a three year extension and this has caused a rift in Yankees fans. People either love Cash and call him a genius or absolutely despise him, there’s no middle ground. Since Cash has been with the team, they have won 7 AL pennants and 5 world series. Now I am […]

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 […]

One last captain curtain call

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

Preview: Yankees vs Blue Jays (9/19/14)

Hiroki Kuroda‘s (10-9, 3.81 ERA) time in the Bronx is winding down just like the captain’s. He will take on Mark Buehrle (12-9, 3.40 ERA) as the season comes closer to the end. Kuroda has been taking it easy between starts to avoid a second half collapse like last year, and so far its worked. He is 3-2 with […]

The Yankees final homestand of the season begins with Shane Greene (5-3, 3.56 ERA) taking on R.A. Dickey (13-12, 3.84 ERA) and the Blue Jays.

Hiroki Kuroda (10-9, 3.91 ERA) and Chris Tillman (12-5, 3.36 ERA) close out the series at Camden Yards. Since the break, Kuroda has cut back on throwing between starts trying to avoid a late season collapse like last season. That didn’t help his last outing, which was his shortest of the season against the Rays, allowing nine hits […]

Chris Capuano

Chris Capuano (1-2, 4.40 ERA) has fallen on some hard times but looks to correct this ship against Jake Odorizzi (10-11, 3.84 ERA). Capuano allowed four runs in just 4 1/3 innings in his last start against the Red Sox, which was his worst as a Yankee. He served up three homers, two to David Ortiz in his […]
