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...

Aaron Judge and the rest of the Yankees have definitely cooled down a bit. A series against tough Houston pitching slowed everyone down. The biggest problem, however, was very evident in the pitching. Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka could not get through three innings. If it wasn’t for the long relievers the Yankees would have been in big trouble. The huge bats more...

How can you feel more delighted with the way the Yanks are playing? I don’t think you can. It sure is a fun time to watch the Bombers play. Sweeping the World Series champion Chicago Cubs was amazing. It had great plays like Brett Gardner hitting a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth with two outs to win game one. My boy Aaron Judge has slowed down a more...

Aaron! Aaron! Aaron! Is there anyone out there more exciting to watch right now than Aaron Judge? It seems everyone in baseball is talking about the 25 year old. He has 12 home runs and leads the major leagues. The interesting things is no one expected this. Big things were expected from Greg Bird and Gary Sanchez. So far those are not working out, but Judge is more...

The Yankees had an okay week and are in second place in the American League East. Pitchers this time around were not as sharp. Manager Joe Girardi commented that at least two starters - CC Sabathia and Jordan Montgomery - had nothing working, but kept the team in the game. So far the biggest excitement on the team is Aaron Judge. Everyone is waiting to see just more...

It is so nice to see the Yankees on a roll. This is where I expected them to be the first week. The star players are not producing as much as expected. Gary Sanchez is injured and Greg Bird looks not on top of things despite a good day on Sunday. He looks confused and behind a lot of pitches. I’m sure he will snap out of it in time. The pitching has been more...

I heard the first week of Yankees baseball called ‘Over Reaction Week’ on the radio. It sure is true. When the Yankees were 1-4, I was sure they would never win another game this season. Then, Catcher Gary Sanchez and first basemen Greg Bird got injured. I was ready to call the season over. But, alas, the team won three straight games and things are looking up more...
