"With those who don't give a damn about baseball, I can only sympathize. I do not resent them. I am even willing to concede that many of them are physically clean, good to their mothers and in favor of world peace. But while the game is on, I can't think of anything to say to them." --Art Hill

Game 147: Take the high road

I feel like I’m supposed to be fired up about the brawl last night, but it’s the complete opposite. All the Yankees did was put their health at risk and incense a team that now has something to...

Game 135: Boy vs Roy, Boiler vs Spoiler

The Joba Rules may be more rigid and honored than the Marine Code of Conduct. I like structure. But I'm still getting used to the 6-pitcher games that accommodate these rules. After being held to...

Game 134: Hey, ya never know

There are a few certainties in sports: that the tickets you pass on end up being for the game of the year, that games 4-7 of the NBA finals will be billed as "must-wins," and that someone’s kid...

Game 133: Any given Wednesday

I trust stats and historical evidence about as much as I'd trust a drunk ventriloquist. So the fact that Accuscore projects the Yankees to have a 73% chance tonight of beating the Orioles means...

Game 128: "Pitchers Duel" may be misnomer. "Pitchers Mud Wrestling" maybe.

When CC Sabathia pitches for the Yankees, our offense explodes. When Mark Buehrle pitches against the Yankees, same result. The last time these two met up, the Yanks were down in an 0-3 series...

Game 127: A.J. out for blood and redemption

A.J. Burnett (10-7, 4.08) can be one scary fire-breathing dragon to face, even despite his August struggles. Our ace is 0-3 with a 6.32 ERA in his last 5 starts, including one mess of an outing...

Game 126: SWING AWAY!

After the stomach punch of last night's game (that Jscape and I took in together), I'm hoping the Yankees make a collective decision to do what they did in the 9th inning, in the first 8. I guess...

Game 122: Heads or Trails--Yankees look to flip Penny and widen AL East gap

Game 121: Gaudin latest challenger to the 5-spot Teflon

Two-thirds of the way through the 2009 season and the Yankees have seemed to remedy, if not find ways around, the better part of the holes in their game. Except one. Trying to fill the #5 spot in...

In Game 2 of the series, my parents got a kick out of this sign held up by the fan sitting in front of them. (I don't care how clever a sign is, if there's a piece of oaktag popping up and down in front of my vision line for the whole game, I'm not going to be too taken with it....)
