Things are definitely changing in New York. This past week the Yankees played better than they have since May. They look rejuvenated and best of all the bullpen looks sharp again. Aroldis Chapman has regained his old form and been the closer he was meant to be. I’m not as sure about Dellin Betances or David Robertson, but I’m willing to give them a more...

It was a big relief to see the Yankees finally win a series over Seattle. We took it 3-1. The last time the Yanks won a series was in early June. So far I have not been impressed with new acquisition Todd Frazier. I will definitely give him more time. I just hope he is not another old player in his twilight years. I definitely would stick to the rookies. A .203 more...

Nothing could make me happier than waking up Wednesday morning to find the Yankees traded Tyler Cliippard. The Yankees acquired infielder Todd Frazier and right-handed pitchers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for right-handed pitcher Tyler Clippard, left-handed pitcher Ian Clarkin and outfielders Blake Rutherford and Tito more...

Preece Finishes Second at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Ryan Preece, of Berlin, has been racing his whole life. Preece is a Whelan Modified Series Champion with an extensive career in that series and last year had the opportunity to run full time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JD Motorsports. Since his stint at JD Motorsports Ryan put all of his focus an attention back into his Modified series car but wasn’t sure if, or more...

It was exciting to see so many Yankees make it to the All-Star game. Aaron Judge was an easy choice as he was top vote getter. Others will include Pitchers Luis Severino and Dellin Betances, Catcher Gary Sanchez and Second Baseman Starlin Castro. Severino is 5-4 and surely would have more wins if not for the bullpen. Betances has been awful as of late. He has more...

It’s almost one of my favorite times of the year in the Fourth of July. I love this patriotic holiday as well as watching the Great American Boom. This year I am asking those out there to please not use illegal fireworks. Only sparkler type fireworks are allowed. Each year I hear blasts from illegal fireworks. Many people have lost limbs and been injured by more...

It was very depressing to see the Yankees have such a bad road trip last week. The team lost 6 in a row and first place is in jeopardy. Losing 4 straight to an awful Oakland team is disheartening. Every team has a losing streak, so hopefully it is a fluke. The pitching has been sketchy. The hitting has also dropped. The Yanks are now ranked 4th in batting average more...

Although I love my Yankees, I always find there are players that just make my skin crawl. This year that player is Tyler Clippard. Each time he goes to the mound I cringe. Occasionally he pitches fine. Most days I watch him and he blows the game or puts men on base or blows up someone else’s game. His line looks fine, but he just is so unpredictable. The Yanks more...

I went to Yankee Stadium last Friday night as the Yankees played the Oakland Athletics. Unfortunately, the A’s won 4-1. But what was most disappointing to me were the fans. The people in front of me only cared about food. You can now order food by an app and have it delivered to your seats. (It is more expensive and smaller portions than if you get up and get it more...

I don’t know about you, but the way the Yankees played last week against Tampa Bay was frustrating. I don’t see the Rays as that good of a team, but we can’t beat them in their stadium. The bats have slowed down and the pitching is slumping. The Yanks have dropped to second in average and second in runs scored. The team is eighth in earned run average and more...
