    Let Us Now Harshly Mock the At-Bat Music of the Yankees and Mets

    Chris Carter had a short career in the major leagues. He hit below league-average in 113 at bats from 2008-2010. He played in Japan the past two years. His career wasn't that notable except for one thing: In 2010 with the Mets, Carter's at-bat music was Rick Derringer's "Real American." As in Hulk H ... More >>

    Who's Saving the Yankees' Season While All Their Old Men Are Out? An Old Man, Naturally

    Nice quip from David Letterman last night: "Martha Stewart says she wants to meet a rich man between the age of 50 and 70. Why doesn't she just date a New York Yankee?" Indeed. And the subs that the Yankees have brought in to get them through a period of recovery from injuries are as old as the gu ... More >>

    Good News, Yankees Fans: 2014 is Only a Year Away

    Over the last few years, I've tended to skip reading preseason baseball magazines -- too many air-headed predictions made by people without a firm grasp of statistics and economics. Athlon Sports' Baseball Previews, though, is both hip and smart, and always has something surprising to say about ever ... More >>

    The Yankees' Last Gasp

    Regardless of what happens tonight, while watching the Yankees 2-1 loss to the Tigers last night in the third game of the ALCS, you had the feeling that it was the end of an era. They brought Nick Swisher to the on-deck circle last night but he didn't get to bat. If he had, it probably would have ... More >>

    A-Rod's Not The Yankees' Only Playoff Goat

    I've always resisted the idea that clutch hitting exists, I guess because I don't like the notion that baseball is something more than a game - that it brings out something heroic in an athlete. I pretty much agree with Bill James's early assessment on the topic, which was that what a batter hits ... More >>

    Yankees Last Chance

    When Raul Ibanez hit his second spectacular home run Wednesday night, he told reporters, "I'm part of a team. Everything we do is a team effort." After last night's embarrassing, 13-inning, 2-1 loss to the Orioles, I'm ready to believe he was telling the truth. The rest of the Yankee batting or ... More >>

    Yankees 2012: OK But No Cigar...Yet

    Is it possible that following one team up close, day by day, for an entire season, can actually give you a distorted rather than accurate perception of how good they are? Like many Yankee fans, I've been ruthlessly criticizing the team's performance, or at least its performance since the All-Star ... More >>

    Yanks Split With Orioles; October Looking Bleak

    However much relief Yankee fans feel after the split of the four-game series with the Orioles - and it was oh, so painfully close to being 3 of 4 for the Yanks - and however good it felt to finally see the Yanks cut loose for 13 runs on Sunday afternoon, it's hard to come away with any sense of con ...

    Phil Hughes' Meltdown Latest Sign Of Trouble For Yanks

    Yankee fans, the realistic ones anyway, must have watched last night's 6-5 loss to Detroit and understood that the team is in serious trouble. There's a whole lot of things going wrong, from injuries to Curtis Granderson's sudden inability to fathom the strike zone. But the worst, by far, is the c ... More >>

    Trade Deadline Comes And Goes. Yanks Do Nada

    Remember just a few years ago when everyone thought it was so unfair that the Yankees had the money and resources to make all the big deals just before the trade deadline? The haves picking the pockets of the have-nots, and all that. Well, it sure does look as if the Yankees are no longer one of th ... More >>

    Note to Phil Hughes: Stop Worrying About Your Potential

    Lost amidst the Curtis Granderson three-homer fireworks and the media aftermath last night was the fact that Phil Hughes actually won a ball game. It didn't look pretty on paper. The Yankees won 7-6 and needed the Holy Trio - Rafael Soriano, David Robertson and Mariano Rivera - to preserve the win a ... More >>

    Yankee Post-Mortem: A-Rod Not the Only Cause of Death

    ​Let's look on the bright side ... no, scratch that. There is no bright side. Let's try to take in the big picture ... no, skip it. That's crap, too. The Yankees' 3-2 elimination loss to Detroit on Thursday night was as ugly as a one-run defeat can be. They were a better team than the Tigers, not ... More >>

    Fun, Fun, Fun for Curtis Granderson and Yankee Fans

    When Curtis Granderson came to bat for the Yankees in the second inning of yesterday's home opener against Detroit, the crowd got a nasty shock: the stadium's speakers were blaring Rebecca Black's "Friday," a song so insipid it makes Justin Bieber sound like Lou Reed. Granderson, too, seemed ba ... More >>
