Yankees-Diamondbacks Series Preview
Interleague play has turned into an unbalanced schedule of interleague play and it has never before been this early.  Early as in Opening Day for the Angels and Reds.  Early as in NOW for the New York Yankees.  The Diamondbacks invade the Bronx in a re-match of the 2001 World Series..…
Yankees Take Two of Three From Baltimore
As I predicted (once in a while a blind squirrel finds a nut), the Yankees took two of three from rival Baltimore in a big series considering that Andy Pettitte's start was pushed back due to back spasms.  Here is how New York did it.
Now Or Nova
Unless Phil Hughes turns it around fairly soon and fully develops into what Yankee fans thought he would be (this writer thinks the time has come and gone for him to do so), someone must take that spot.
Mets’ Best Farm Pitching Trumps Yankees’ Version
Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain and Ian Kennedy never panned out.  Now, the best in the Yankee farm system is Manny Banuelos, who is out for the minor league year with Tommy John surgery and who knows if Dellin Betances will ever emerge like the Yanks said he would two years ago.  The Mets o…

Hughes Solid in Yanks 10-4 Win Over Royals
The Yankees (15-13) were finally able to put together a solid offensive performance on Sunday afternoon and Phil Hughes pitched great in the 10-3 victory over the Royals (9-18).

Yankees Fall To Orioles’s 7-1
The Orioles (14-10) found success for the first time in five tries against the Yankees (13-10) this season beating them 7-1 on Tuesday night. Orioles starter Brian Matusz was unusually impressive in his outing against the Yanks, Matusz went 6 1/3, only allowing one run on six hits and struck out fou…
Hughes struggles in Yanks loss
The Yankees (10-8) were handed their second loss in as many days on Wednesday to the Texas Rangers (15-4) losing 7-3. Phil Hughes got hit hard in his brief outing.  He lasted only 2 2/3 innings gave up 4 runs on 5 hits. Rangers starting pitching held the Yankee offense in check for the second g…
