Joe Girardi Should Trust Young Bullpen

Mariano Rivera is retiring this season and will provide the biggest transition in Yankee history since Mickey Mantle waved good-bye to the Bronx patrons.  The good news is, while no one will ever again be Rivera, the Yanks have a lot of nice, young pitchers in the bullpen they can choose from.

Yankees-Mets Series Preview

The Subway Series is here again.  This of course is more for the fans and the media, but there are some terrific New York baseball storylines to this one.  First thing is first.  The Yanks come fresh off an impressive series win in Tampa Bay, where they seem to never win games. The Mets continue to be a disaster, losing a series to Atlanta and getting no consistent hitting or depth in the starting rotation.  Don't forget, these two teams play two at Citi Field and then hit the Bronx for two at Yankee Stadium in this quirky four-game set.  Here is a Subway Series preview.

The Options For Phil Hughes

Some Stars In Sports Just Have It, And Others Don’t

LeBron James (now), Sidney Crosby, Albert Pujols (while with the Cardinals), baseball's Giants as a team, Derek Jeter through the years, Mariano Rivera, Eli Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Mark Messier, Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Henrik Lundqvist and plenty more.  You get the picture.  When these guys step-up, their teams win and advance.

Why The Yankees Are In First Place

The demise of the Yankees was written at least a dozen times from February 1 until now.  The injuries, oh the injuries.  But baseball people must not have been baseball people through and through because they forgot that CC Sabathia and Robinson Cano and Mariano Rivera were still around and the bullpen was in tact.  And the division actually wasn't that good if you know how baseball teams win in 2013.  Here are the Top 5 reasons why the Yanks were in first place as of May 13, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST.

Joe Girardi Won’t Get Credit Because He’s Yankee Skipper

It is one of the true enigmas in sports, a baseball manager.  How much credit do they get when a club wins and how much blame when one loses?  This year, at some point, Joe Girardi must be given a little credit, right?

Yankees-Royals Series Preview

 

The Yankees and upstart Royals play three in Kansas City. New York comes fresh off a series win in rainy Colorado. Kansas City comes off a series loss to the Orioles in Baltimore.  Here is a Yankees-Royals series preview.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore had a plan a couple years ago.  It was a plan to build through the farm, get pitching with some prospects and build an actual baseball team.  Well, here we are.  The Royals are good.  Are they really good?  Not yet, but even at 18-13 this club is showing early signs that the playoffs are possible, especially with the second Wild Card now in place.  The Yankees will see old Rays pitchers Wade Davis and James Shields in this series, two guys they know well from American League East ball.  Finally, Mariano Rivera returns to the scene where he tore his ACL shagging fly balls last year.
