    In response to youkillus' comment:   Great post Yank. I love looking at stats from bygone times. My favorite historical team is the 1950 Red Sox. They scored an amaxing 1027 runs in just 154 games, wi more »

    Joba appears to be a pretty good guy, but he lacks grace, insight and intelligence.  In short, he has a proclivity to behave at times like an arrested develoment adolescent boob.

    I posted the following in 2011, prior to Papelbon signing with the Phillies: "Allowing Papelbon to walk would be a Yankee fan's dream.  IMO Papelbon proved this season that he is continuing to learn h more »

    Few posters and pundits predicted the Red Sox to miss the postseason last year; however, I would wager even fewer would have expected Boston to be looking up at Baltimore and Toronto in the standings more »

    Allowing Papelbon to walk would be a Yankee fan's dream.  IMO Papelbon proved this season that he is continuing to learn how to pitch, and he appears to have matured as well.  He gets the job done yea more »

    Prior to becoming the Yankees closer, in 1996, Mariano Rivera served as set up man for John Wettland.  That season, Rivera faced 425 batters (for comparison, David Robertson has faced 261 batters this more »

    In the post above is the pitch chart from PitchFX, which also illustrates that the pitch was clearly a strike. The other pitches to Gonzalez were cutters inside, which were fouled off (two), swung on more »

    The Yankees have actually done this more often that you would think.  Eduardo Nunez has played the outfield.  Ramiro Pena played the outfield at times last season.  The Yankees even had a minor-league more »

    Thanks for the link.  I can listen to discussions on pitching and pitching mechanics all day.  Rick Peterson - very interesting take on AJ Burnett.  Excellent! more »

    Well, Boston will likely not face Joakim Soria in game one, as he threw 40 pitches in the ninth inning against the Yankees last night.  KC has more than a couple good fastball hitters and a pretty goo more »

    Mariano ended the game tonight with a swinging strikeout on a 95 mph two-seamer. His fastball was 93-94 the entire inning, which was his second save in two days.  Rivera now has 591 career saves and 3 more »

    People have been writing off Tim Wakefield since his Pittsburgh days, yet he makes it impossible to cut him, year after year. He can start and relieve, and he is an innings eater. Despite his record l more »
