Ivan Nova didn’t do much to help his case for a spot in the Yankees’ potential playoff rotation. If anything, he made New York’s path to the postseason a little tougher.
Joe Girardi said it will be difficult to find many at-bats for Gardner down the stretch, but he can use the speedy outfielder as a pinch runner and defensive replacement.
With a trip to the postseason all but guaranteed, Yankees manager Joe Girardi has pushed all the right buttons to avoid that silly one-game playoff setup.
Yankees starter Andy Pettitte hasn’t lost to the Twins in over a decade. Not since April 30, 2001, to be exact.
Despite the defeat, the Yankees have to like their chances to win the division — their final 10 games are against three teams with records below .500.
Joe Girardi would be wise to move Ichiro to the leadoff spot and bat Jeter behind him. It could give the Yankees a game-changer in their race to capture the AL East.
Andy Pettitte rewarded the faithful few at Yankee Stadium with hope. Hope that maybe this pitching staff is going to be all right after all.
Andy Pettitte pitched five sparkling innings in his return from a broken leg and his bullpen barely held on, but his performance kept the Yankees atop the AL East.
It was easily determined whether Andy Pettitte or rookie David Phelps would pitch the first game or the nightcap. “Andy, you kind of give (Andy) his choice,” said manager Joe Girardi.
New York, with a half-game advantage over the Baltimore Orioles, was finally going to get its veteran starter back on Tuesday. Instead, the game was postponed, and the left-hander will take the hill against Toronto on Wednesday.
Curtis Granderson’s caught fire in his last six games and is powering the Yankees down the stretch.
Tuesday. That is the answer to the question most asked by Yankees fans over the past two months: When is Andy coming back?!
Andy Pettitte wants to help the Yankees right now, but he’ll have to wait a few days to do so. The five-time World Series champion will start for the Yankees when the Bombers take on the Blue Jays on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.
Derek Jeter knows what’s at stake in these final 20 games, and he’s not about to watch the Yankees’ playoff push from the bench.
It’s a fight for survival at the top of the AL East , where some weird stuff could happen if the standings remain static.
