Boomer was rather proud of himself for coming up with the term ‘Buck Ball’ when describing how the Baltimore Orioles’ style emulates that of their manager, Buck Showalter – a man the Booms has grown quite fond of.
The celebrations have passed — and Game 4 will provide a fresh challenge for Rodriguez and the Yankees.
He has to give a lineup change serious consideration. It’s not about ego at this point. It’s about surviving and advancing. Chavez could launch a homer or two over the right-field porch, and there’s little doubt that Ibanez would hit the ball hard.
There’s nowhere for A-Rod to hide — Joe Girardi isn’t ready to drop him in the batting order. As the Yankees’ No. 3 hitter, he’s going to have to start carrying his share of the load.
“Are jobs riding on this? Not that I know of,” Steinbrenner told reporters outside the Yankees’ clubhouse on Monday. “Jobs are not riding on this. We’ll look at everything in the offseason, as we always do.”
Joe Girardi can’t jam the reset button and make his team young and voracious again. But he is expected to beat Baltimore. And if he doesn’t, he could go hungry.
Buck Showalter’s inspired Orioles are defying logic and mastering the aging Yankees.
Of the many current injuries in Major League Baseball, a number of them might have been avoided with a slower progression back to the field. Others appear to be exacerbations waiting to happen.
That big lead in the AL East is gone. The Yankees are in a free-fall that’s seen them blow a 10-game cushion over the past 47 days.
The regular season is not the issue for the Yankees. But once they get to the postseason, there may be dark times around the corner.
Nerdy. Eccentric. Quirky. One thing’s for certain: At 37, years after most players’ careers have peaked, R.A. Dickey is finally reaching his pinnacle.
Just because he’s a knuckleballer, that doesn’t mean his arm is invincible.
David Robertson is faced with the unenviable task of filling Mariano Rivera’s shoes but is ready to take on the challenge.
Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy homered off struggling Phil Hughes, giving the Orioles their first win in five tries against the Yankees this year.
After waiting several hours to start Tuesday night’s game, the Yankees held on a few more minutes for the go-ahead run. But the question is, should they have played at all?
