Dreamland Yankees in 2013

There are so many fantasy scenarios going on with the Yankees it isn't even funny.  It's turned into "Dreamland" in the Bronx.  They aren't just playing baseball, and bad baseball at that.  They are giving people around the game the idea that things are getting better or that a scenario is going to play out soon when it has no chance.   Here are some examples.

Hiroki Kuroda The Bright MVP On A Dismal Yankee Team

Just having the nonsense with Alex Rodriguez would be enough to tarnish a season for the New York Yankees, even one in which they made the playoffs and fought for the American League flag.  But on top of that you have so many other things that have gone wrong.

Yankees Sweep Cleveland With 6-4 Victory

After a very difficult week against the Mets and Red Sox that garnered only 1 win out of 7 games, the Yankees entered this week determined to bounce back, and they did exactly that with a 3-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians to wrap up their 8-game home-stand. Led by a complete game performance from CC Sabathia, the Yankees took the final game 6-4 earlier this afternoon and now head to the West Coast for a week and a half.

Yankees Look To Keep Creating Separation In AL East

Entering last weekend, the New York Yankees sat atop the American League East to begin a crucial stretch in this young 2013 season, with 12 of their next 16 games against all 4 divisional foes. The team started with two convincing wins on Friday and Saturday against the Blue Jays, only to see Mother Nature postpone the potential sweep on Sunday. So with just 5 games of separation from Boston, Tampa Bay and Baltimore (all of which have records over .500), it was time for the Yankees to start an 8-game road trip - the first 6 taking place against the Orioles and Rays.

The Teixeira Factor

Mark Teixeira continues to hit in simulated games but not active batting practice and hopes to be back by very late May.  The question is, Is he really going to help the Yankees?  Let's take a look at The Teixeira Factor, how he will help and hurt the Yanks at the same time by returning from injury (partially torn tendon sheath in his right wrist).

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.

Leadership Helping Yanks Stay Ahead

Talk all day long about the 2013 replacement players in pinstripes.  Talk about general manager Brian Cashman taking chances.  Talk about the starting pitching being good enough in spots.  Talk about whatever you'd like as the main reason for the Yankees' demise not quite happening just yet like some thought.  The real talk is the leadership and presence of Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte.  As long as those three are in the Bronx, it starts and ends with that.

Hafner Carries Yankees To Victory Over Toronto, 5-4

Going into the 2013 MLB season, I would have called you crazy if you said the older free agents signed during the off-season would help carry the Yankees to a good start and maintain relevancy in the American League East. However, that has been exactly the case, and this afternoon was another perfect example of that.

Yankees Get Comeback Victory Over Arizona, 4-3

After the first 6 innings of tonight's game at Yankee Stadium, it looked as if the Diamondbacks were cruising to an easy victory and setting up a "rubber game" in the series finale on Thursday. But as John Sterling would probably say, "that's why the game of baseball is 9 innings," and now the Diamondbacks will look to avoid a sweep when they take the field again.
