Do the Yankees need a new pitching coach?

This year the Yankees pitching isn't performing the way it should, which is quite an understatement. The new pitchers that were acquired last year, Luis Severino and Nathan Eovaldi, are performing worse than they did last year. Eovaldi's numbers are not much worse but still he declined from 4.20 to 4.76. Severino had a solid …

After getting Chapman, what are Yankees’ true intentions?

After the Yankees acquired Aroldis Chapman in a trade with the Reds, they said rather quick that they want to keep the bullpen together as it is. So with Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Chapman this would be a formidable backend of the Yankees' bullpen. But do the Yankees really want to keep the three together …

The Yankees are slowly imploding

So far the Yankees have done a lot better than many, including me expected. Most fans and experts expected the team to finish near last place. But much to my surprise, the team was a contender for the biggest part of the season. The Yankees have been a streaking team this year. Long winning streaks …

Sabathia’s injury a blessing in disguise

Last night C.C. Sabathia left the game in the third inning with one out to go. Once again he was bothered by knee problems. I guess you know that I haven't been too high on Sabathia in the last seasons. He isn't his old self. This showed early in the season. He tried a different …

What to think of Luis Severino?

After three starts, I'd like to take a look at Luis Severino. The Yankee prospect was called up early August and debuted with the Yankees on August 5. Through the years the Yankees had several prospects that were hyped in the media and who did not live up the expectations: Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain …

Yanks lose three straight. Time to sound the alarm bell?

I realize that the head of this post sounds a bit exaggerated, but it is not about the three losses in a row. It is about the way HOW they lost. Last night the Yankees lost their third game in a row vs Tampa Bay. The final score: 6-1. The only run was scored on …

Yankees thinking about a six-man rotation

The Yankees are mullling a six-man rotation. Six? Yup, according to the New York Post and then it must be true. 😉 The Bronx Bombers are trying everything to keep Masahiro Tanaka healty. He was bothered by a small ligament tear in his right elbow, which still may not be healed completely. Even though Tanaka …

Yankees, Dutchies, Spring Training games: Light at the end of the tunnel

Yesterday the first Spring Training games were played. Two Dutchies saw action but didn't fare quite well. Jonathan Schoop was the starting second baseman for the Orioles vs the Detroit Tigers. Schoop went 0 for 3 with a strike out and a runner left on base. He got on base once thanks to a fielding …

John Heyman, please cut the crap!!!

In the last 24 hours there is a rumour floating around that the Yankees are weighing their options to acquire Troy Tulowitzki, shortstop of the Colorado Rockies. This story was brought by John Heyman of CBS. I really don't know where he got this information from, but in the meantime at least one source from …
