    Can Phil Hughes Get Healthy? The Yankees May Depend on It

    The silence which accompanied the news that Phil Hughes may not be be ready to start the season after suffering another back injury in spring training is foreboding, to say the least. The Yankees, quite sensibly, want to give Hughes time to get the bulging disc in his upper back healed rather than ... More >>

    Yanks Lose. Here's All The Baseball I Want To Talk About This Year

    Speculation on what caused the train wreck that ended last night with the Yankee's 8-1 loss to Detroit is useless, so I'm going to empty out all the notes I took during this year's ALCS and see what sense can be made of it.

    The 2012 Yankees Don't Suck Nearly As Much As We All Thought They Did

    I don't think anyone, even the most arrogant of Yankee fans -- am I being redundant when I say "arrogant Yankee fans? - thought the Yankees would be in 1st place in the AL East at the All-Star break. Certainly not after losing their big stud starter Michael Pineda before the season started and Mar ... More >>

    How Does The Mets 1962-2012 All-time Team Stack Up to The Yankees?

    Last night, SNY broadcast the Mets All-time Team 1962-2012 from the 92nd Street Y. I love programs like this -- the video clips, the debates on old ballplayers, et al. The voting panel of the Daily News' John Harper and Mike Lupica, the Post's Mike Vaccaro, MLB.com's Marty Noble, and Mets broadcast ... More >>

    In Mets-Rays Match, Will R.A. Dickey Reach MVP Status?

    I'm trying to remember -- was last night the first time ever that Yankees fans rooted for the Mets and vice versa? The two teams helped each other out by whipping the others' division rivals, and in doing so, I think, helped give good definition of their teams' respective character. The Mets, beati ... More >>

    Don't Blame the Yankees Bullpen for Last Night. Blame Nick Swisher.

    Oops.​Obviously when you have a rotation that consists of one ace and four jokers - and that's what Phil Hughes, A.J. Burnett, Ivan Nova and whoever the Yankees put in the fifth spot are - you've got to win the game in which your ace pitches. Especially when the ace pitches seven shutout innin ... More >>

    Why Game 1 Means More to the Yankees Than to the Rangers

    ​Everyone is saying that tonight's game, the first of the American League Championship Series, is critical for both the Yankees and Rangers.
