The New York Yankees are a mediocre baseball team that also happens to employ a plethora of talented players that more competitive teams would gladly pay a decent price to acquire. If the Yankees were any other team, the path forward would be quite clear: Have a fire sale at the deadline, restock the farm system, and…
While throwing against the Orioles this afternoon, Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia caught his cleat in the dirt and took a little tumble. The fall resulted in a balk and advanced Chris Davis to second base.
We already know that Aroldis Chapman can throw harder than anyone in the history of baseball—unless you buy that story about Bob Feller, who was badass, throwing a pitch 107 mph one time—but the Yankees’ closer was throwing particularly hard last night.
The Yankees staged a wild comeback last night, erasing a four-run ninth inning deficit and walking off on a Didi Gregorius home run to beat the Rangers 9-7. But also, who gives a shit about the Yankees? We’re here for the grown man getting snitty over a baseball.
There was a very weird baseball game in New York last night. The Yankees led the Rangers 6-5 heading into the ninth inning of a game that had been waterlogged by rainstorms since the fifth. Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman entered the storm to try and close things out, but walked the first batter he faced. That’s when…
Yankees flamethrower Aroldis Chapman averaged 101.9 mph on his eleven pitches last night against the Twins—and that’s only because one of them was a changeup. How fast is 101.9 mph? Faster than cops clocked the following athletes when they were busted for speeding:
Listen, can you hear it? A faint whisper grows louder. “The Cubbies could use another bat on the bench.” it says. “Why not trade for Andrew McCutchen?”
Hideki Matsui has been out of baseball for four years, but the former Yankee still has that oomph—as proven during today’s Old-Timers’ Game in the Bronx, when the slugger crushed a David Cone pitch into the second deck.
The Blue Jays beat the Yankees tonight and the Blue Jays’ best slugger even had the nerve to take it out on Yankees fans, smashing a beverage (presumably beer?) showering the upper chunk of a section in suds (or maybe soda! who knows!).
Aroldis Chapman returns to the Yankees today after serving his 30-game domestic violence suspension, but the fireballing reliever has yet to take much responsibility for the incident that landed him on MLB’s banned list.
Red Sox coaches had to restrain David Ortiz after his outburst following a ninth-inning strikeout with the bases loaded in a game the Yankees went on to win, 3-2.
The New York Yankees are last in the American League East at 9-17, and tonight they suffered maybe the most bitter defeat of what’s been a real dirge of a season. Their offense has been particularly bad, generating the fewest runs in the AL and mustering just the second-lowest OPS in the AL. The team’s inability to…
Athletics outfielder Chris Coghlan’s two-run homer in Thursday’s game bummed out one small Yankees fan. When a woman sitting next to him started to clap, he swiftly scolded her for supporting Oakland.
Danny Valencia probably thought he had a decent chance to sprint home from third after Aaron Hicks caught this sacrifice fly. He didn’t even get close. Look at this goddamn throw.
The Yankees wrap up a three-game series in Toronto tonight, and they got their second out of the night with a fair bit of pizazz, as Brett Gardner went ass-over-teakettle to make this grab here.
This MLB season is not even a week old, yet fans are already resorting to the kind of boredom-reducing insane behavior we usually see in late September. Two separate incidents in Detroit and Milwaukee will, if you continue reading any further, probably ruin your appetite for the day. You’ve been warned.
Alex Rodriguez hit his first home run of the season today in Detroit, giving the Yankees an early lead thanks to A-Rod’s massive dong.
