Playoff under-performers Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira have gotten off to a hot start in the ALDS.
It’s a new season, one Pettitte knows better than most. On Monday night, he’ll have his eye on No. 20 — as in career postseason victories.
They say everything changes in October. New heroes are born and others fall from greatness. That was certainly the case Sunday night.
“I said it was his game,” manager Joe Girardi said. “It was his game to either win or lose, and that’s exactly what he did. He went out and won the game for us.”
CC Sabathia turned in a sparkling pitching performance and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-2 Sunday night.
Yankees fans milling around Times Square said they have confidence the Bronx Bombers will prevail in the best-of-five series.
Joe Girardi has placed 11 pitchers on the team’s 25-man roster for the AL divisional series against the Baltimore Orioles.
Sixteen years after the Yankees ousted the Orioles from the playoffs and advanced to the World Series, the teams resume their rivalry Sunday night in Game 1 of the AL division series.
“Usually that would be the end of my season,” Suzuki said Friday night before a workout at Yankee Stadium. “What I’ve realized is here, for the Yankees, is that it’s the starting point.”
In every game the Yankees lost, they looked old and slow. In September, those old guys played with veteran savvy and experience. So, which is it?
Joe Saunders pitched effectively into the sixth inning, Adam Jones hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the Baltimore Orioles beat the two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers 5-1 in the wild-card game playoff Friday night.
It matters little who the Bombers play in the ALDS, because Mark Teixeira has the winning Rx: Yankee baseball.
The pinstriped recipe for success this season will take a backseat to the sudden surge of southpaw pitching. The Yankees will remain in the playoffs for as long as CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte pitch to the back of their baseball cards.
Regardless of where you stand on the new MLB playoff schedule, one thing is for sure: The new format could hurt the teams with the best records, both on the field and in the pocket
With the new playoff format, the Yankees’ next move is to, well, be patient. “To have the best record and not know where you’re going is strange,” manager Joe Girardi said.
