R.A. Dickey threw seven sharp innings, Jason Bay hit a two-run homer and the New York Mets beat Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 on Friday night.
Coming off two lackluster games offensively, the Mets will need a big series from the middle of the lineup, with or without David Wright.
Vance Worley might remain in the shadows of the Big Three, but if he can continue his success, it’s doubtful that either he or the Phillies will mind.
Go ahead, hate us. You’ll find a Yankees fan unfazed by the vitriol. In fact, he or she may even invite you to squat on the bandwagon, take the pinstripes for a spin.
Since trading away Jesus Montero, the Yankees need to acquire an additional DH. Hideki Matsui could fill that role and bring some clutch back to the Yankees.
C.J. Wilson may be the most talented starter on the free agent market but the Yankees should turn to other targets if his salary demands are too high.
By agreeing to an extension without opting out, CC Sabathia again demonstrated why he’ll be remembered as a beloved Yankee and not a mercenary — like Alex Rodriguez.
Assuming he exercises his opt-out clause, can the Yankees afford to re-sign CC Sabathia? The better question is: can they afford not to?
Managing the Yankees is a thankless job because most of you reasonably assert that if you toss $200 million against the wall, something must stick. And no one will feel sorry for a squad that can flex its checkbook and buy the best players.
If it’s possible, if you can see over the pyramid of cash and the titanic $200 million payroll, the Yankees were overlooked this year, the presumed bridesmaids in the AL East.
Dillon Gee’s impressive start seems a long way back. Gee gave up eight runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings against the Phillies on Monday, increasing his ERA from 3.92 to 4.37.
Cliff Lee threw seven sharp innings, John Mayberry Jr. and Hunter Pence each hit a two-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 10-0 Monday night.
How does this year’s Phillies team stack up against the 1998 Yankees? Hint: It all comes down to pitching.
We all knew the Yankees’ best pitcher this year would be a large man who threw a live ball. We didn’t know he’d throw it with his right hand, and was brought to New York as a de facto insurance policy.
New Yankees always have to earn my trust and I think Bartolo Colon has done that. With May under way, I decided to take a look at the new Yankees in 2011.
