    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 >>

    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.

    The Mets Are Above .500 -- Compliments Of David Wright

    On Opening Day if someone had offered you a bet that after 41 games the Mets would have a better record than the Yankees, would you have taken it? I think you would.

    Yesterday Marks Particularly Rough Day For The New York Yankees

    How does yesterday rank with the worst days in Yankee history?

They also got a pretty good idea that the rest of this decade doesn't look too good either. Mark Fe ... More >>

    Kuroda Wows In Yanks' Home Opener

    Any Yankees victory over the Los Angeles Angels is sweet, but this afternoon's 5-0 win was particularly sweet. No sooner did Albert Pujols say, in effect, that Opening Day at Yankee Stadium was "no big deal," Hiroki Kuroda went out and made a big deal out of it: 8 innings, 5 hits, 6 Ks, ZERO runs. ...

    Michael Pineda: Let's Hold The Worry

    What a difference four miles per hour can make. Actually, three. If Michael Pineda's fastball down in Tampa was slamming into catcher Russell Martin's mitt at just 95 mph -- and I say "just" because it was known last year to hit 96 and sometimes 97 -- Pineda would not be on the verge of pushing Ma ...
