CC Sabathia won for the first time in more than a year, Alex Rodriguez hit one of five New York homers and the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 11-5 on Monday night.
CC Sabathia is stuck in the longest losing streak of his career, and his offense isn’t doing a whole lot to help him snap out of it.
There is a fear around this team that they are just an injury or two away from total disaster. But they’re into the second month of the season still alone at the top of the standings.
Russell Martin homered, Mark Buehrle earned a victory over the Yankees for the first time in more than a decade and the Toronto Blue Jays beat New York 5-1 on Wednesday night.
If there’s a chance Sabathia can turn it around, it has to start on Friday night against a dangerous Red Sox lineup in their ballpark.
Matt Harvey finished one out shy of a complete game, earning his first win against the team he rooted for growing up and leading the New York Mets to an 8-2 victory Saturday over the crosstown rival Yankees.
CC Sabathia pitched his first complete game in over 21 months. The Yankees, however, fell short with the bats.
They might be the butt of jokes, but pitchers can succeed despite their extra large cabooses and midsections.
Sure, it’s only been three games, but there’s no denying the fact that the Yankees look very much like their mediocre-at-best selves from last season.
Coming off right knee surgery in July and making his first start since last May, the big lefty threw his fastball 88-90 mph but had good downward tilt on his slider.
Alex Rodriguez hit his first home run since serving a yearlong drug suspension, but the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 6-3.
Even though CC Sabathia appears to be healthy he has very few convinced he will be his old self this season.
The Bronx Bombers are about to bomb, for the third straight season. No tweet or Twitter troll can change that truth.
“I’m just saying for every starter they have, we have the same guy who has done it before, been in World Series and won World Series games. That’s why I don’t think it’s a battle.”
The bullpen is the Yankees’ biggest strength. It’s also the team’s biggest question mark — at least it is for me.
