New York Yankees
An exciting Wednesday September 5th as 2 of the 3 pitchers with the most wins (17) will play today. Luis Severino (17-6) and Corey Kluber (17-7) will face the Athletics’ and the Royals. While Blake Snell (17-5), who makes the three way tie, he is playing tomorrow the 6th against the Orioles. Yankees and Indians seem to have a playoff, while Snell may be crucial as the Rays try to make their way in. Read More.
Yankees won the 1st game in September but currently on a 2 game losing streak. But hey who cares because the Wild Card spot is still a playoff spot where the real music starts. When that dance starts, the hope (or wish) is for Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius to be back. The future is looking even brighter Judge is starting to swing the bat again. Read More.
The White Sox were the team that the Yankees used to bounce back from a 5-game losing streak, including a sweeping by the Red Sox. The Yankees were able to flip the switch and currently on a 4-game winning streak, 8-2 in the last 10 and still no return date for Judge. Yankees are looking good, but not so good that all worries are gone. 6 game behind the Red Sox, anything could happen. Read More.
Yankees are great, but everybody should be watching the Orioles and their race to 100 against the Red Sox. As of August 23, 2018 the Red Sox are at 89 wins while the Orioles are at 90 losses. When I was growing up one of the biggest lessons I learned from my brother (or he tried to teach me) was that I should aim to be the best at whatever I did. Ironically, am pretty average in all I do but I have always aim to be the best that I can be. (Get to the point). The Orioles are aiming (maybe not by design) to be the worst team in baseball.

The Yankees signing Stanton could have been the biggest signing of the summer. Early on the expectations were set; the Yankees fully becoming a contender and the Marlins went in to full rebuild mode. So far everything has gone according to the plan; Yankees are a contending team and the Marlins’ owners will make a bunch of money in 2-3 years. The importance of this games has more to do with player and owner relationship. Read More.
Giancarlo Stanton hit a homer in each of the Yankees win over the Rangers. With 5 homers in the last 6 games he has up his total to 30 for the season, in 12 days Stanton has already matched his total from the forgettable month of July the Yankees had. Aside from sweeping the White Sox and beating out the Rangers, the Yankees have also gained a 2-game lead over the Astros. Unfortunately, still 9.5 behind the Red Sox, catching up may be a loss cause. Read More.
The Yankees are officially on a 3-game winning streak for the first time since June when they swept Seattle. Biggest positive from the series could be Sonny Gray actually able to close out the White Sox in thirteen innings. The Yankees have not been fun to watch as off late, sweeping the White Sox puts a small band-aid on a large wound. The Texas Rangers are up next as they try to close on the Astros’ one game lead. Read More.
The Red Sox didn’t just sweep the Yankees, it was embarrassing. Especially game 4, in which the Red Sox came back from behind to get the win and extend their lead to 9.5 games. The Yankees have been looking worse and worse in the last couple months. Add in the injuries that have been piling up on the roster, if there is not a plan b just yet, am sure is being worked on.
Jacob DeGrom is 4-0 while the Mets are 27-32 on a 6 game losing streak. DeGrom, 29 year old, 98 strikeouts on the season, plain and simple should not let his season go to waste. A move to the Yankees should not be hard at all for either side, is like a block away for DeGrom. The Yankees are in need of quality pitchers. Luis Severino has been great leading the team in wins (9) and strikeouts (102) but he can’t do it alone. DeGrom to the Yankees should be a higher priority than Bryce Harper. Read More.
The Weather in Detroit, MI 68 Fahrenheit Degrees as the 1st game of the Yankees – Tigers double header is about to kick off. Luis Severino and Drew VerHagen will be the starting pitchers for each team. According to the weather it should be sunny enough for baseball today, which at least for the Yankees it hasn’t been that way. Read More.
35 wins and 17 losses have the Yankees sitting comfortably in the 2nd spot of the American League. Even through ups and downs they ended it up having a pretty good month that included winning series against the Red Sox and the Astros. The last game of the month is against the Orioles, who beat out the Yankees earlier in the season. This is a chance of revenge for the Yankees, they have the momentum, batting power and a semi descent pitching line up for the next 4 games. Read More.
Tyler Austin got 2 out of 4 Homers in Sunday’s game vs the Royals to finish out the series 2-1. The New York Yankees get their 30th win and get on another 2 win streak track while keeping the best record in the American league, percentage wise. Still a tight race against the Red Sox who are the other juggernaut team in the American League
If you play fantasy baseball and you happen to have Stanton & Judge your team, like me, it was a rough couple of days. Suspended and postpone was the conclusion of the Yankees-Nationals series. Oh you Mother Nature with your fresh rain and environment loving self. The Yankees and Nationals will play again June 18th, so both teams move on to the next opponent. For the Nationals will be the Dodgers and for the Yankees the Royals.
Burn day is over and now back to work. The New York Yankees are coming off playing the last 9 games at home where they only loss 2 games. The next 8 games are all on the road starting out the Washington Nationals. The Nationals are a good team, fighting in a tight race in the National League against 9 other teams separated by 2-3 wins and losses. Read More.
The Boston Red Sox record of 25-9 is the best in American League. The New York Yankees are 2nd, one game behind, with a record 24-10. Both the Red Sox and Yankees have better records than the whole National League. In other words we are truly getting the best of baseball (at this moment) this upcoming week. Read More.
Up by 2 coming in to 9th inning the Astros almost had it in the bag, but the Yankees had other plans in mind. No homers, just hits and the Yankees get the 3rd win in the 4 game series against the defending champs. Is surprising when the Yankees don’t knock it out of the park, when in theory, they could be on pace to match the season home run record. Today, that wasn’t the case, Carlos Correa hit his 5th of the season and only home run of the season. Read More.
Last night vs the Houston Astros, Giancarlo Stanton earned his weekly check from the Yankees. Stanton gets his 2nd 2 homer game of the season, the first one being opening day vs Toronto. New York is now up on the series 2-1 with 1 game left and puts the Yankees only 2 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League.
Top of the 9th Judge and Gregorius sit on bases. Stanton strikes out (again), Sanchez vs Giles, Sanchez homers for 8th time this season. Yankees go up 3 and between Hicks and Andujar they put the cherry on top to end the inning. Flashback, April 27th Yankees are hosting the Twins, bottom of the 9th, Gregorious and Stanton on base, Sanchez homers to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead and that’s the game folks.
