Luis Severino rebounds in 11-6 win vs. Toronto (Highlights)

The second half has not been kind to New York Yankees’ ace Luis Severino, that changed Saturday against the Blue Jays. Luis Severino finally looked like Luis Severino. A huge sigh of relief for many New York Yankee fans who have been worried about the condition of their 24-year-old ace. He gave the Yankees five-plus innings allowing just six hits, one run, walking two and striking out eight in the Yankees 11-6 win over Toronto. Although it still was not the vintage Severino, it was...

Home runs are not the Yankees’ problem

While the team can be criticized for their recent play, the offensive strategy is solid

One of the common criticisms of the New York Yankees over the last decade or so has been that they rely too much on the home run. When the team boasted Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano, the commentary around them was they focused too much on hitting it out of the park, and not enough on general contact. Now that the team features Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, and Giancarlo Stanton, that...

Miguel Andujar leads slugfest, Yankees top Blue Jays 11-6

The offense had a big game, and Luis Severino looked much better!

The Yankees have a tendency to struggle when facing a pitcher for the first time, but that wasn’t the case today. They wasted no time getting to Sean Reid-Foley. In fact, they scored at least one run every inning through the first five. At one point the Bombers had an 8-0 lead, and it looked like they were going to cruise to an easy win.

Of course, nothing with this team has been easy lately. Luis Severino finally put...

Yankees catcher Austin Romine leaves game after taking foul ball off head

The catcher looked shaky immediately after the impact

In the middle of what should be a nice easy Saturday win, the Yankees got quite a scare out of their catcher. Austin Romine was taken out after five innings behind the plate after he was nailed in the mask by a foul tip off the bat of Richard Urena:

Romine took a ball to the face and was out on his feet for a little bit. Stays in the game. Call me soft, but its 7-0. Take him out and let Higgy finish up. pic.twitter.com/cLa8lYtZKX

Is Aaron Judge without a bat better than Shane Robinson?

Probably not, but hear this very dumb experiment out.

Aaron Judge’s injury has not been a good thing for the Yankees, obviously. For starters, it removed an MVP candidate out of a key spot in the lineup. It also forced Shane Robinson into a starting role.

Robinson seemed destined to be an “Oh yeah, him” person that you come across years from now while looking through 2018 stats. He played a few games in April before going to Triple-A, where it appeared he would play out the rest of...

Report: Joe Girardi turned down invitation to Yankee reunion

The New York Yankees honored their 1998 World Series team on Saturday, but there was one rather conspicuous absence to the festivities.Joe Girardi, who was a backup catcher on the 1998 team and the manager from 2008-2017, was invited to the ceremony but declined the invitation, according to Steven Marcus of Newsday. This will probably raise some eyebrows. Girardi was not brought back by the Yankees after making the ALCS last year, and the manager made it clear that the decision was out of...

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays: Luis Severino vs. Sean Reid-Foley

For the eighth time we wonder if this will be the game where Sevy gets back on track.

Luis Severino is not right. He hasn’t been right since he shut down the Red Sox on July 1st. Since then, he has surrendered a horrifying 30 earned runs over his last seven starts. We have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for him to right the ship, but it hasn’t happened yet. Is he fatigued? Possibly. The Yankees don’t plan on skipping any of his starts for now, though. He isn’t exactly helping...

The Yankees don’t need to worry about a streaky Aaron Hicks

Hicks’ swoon in the latter half of 2017 has saddled him with an undeserved reputation.

Aaron Hicks is having a great year. This is the second time this week that I’ve pointed that out, as I advocated putting him in the leadoff spot in my previous article. In fact, Katie Sharp of The Athletic put up a full post on Hicks and his exploits this season. If you’re still unsold on his merits as a ballplayer, please go read Sharp’s article.

This article will take a more limited focus,...

Is Tommy Kahnle back in the Yankees’ bullpen for good?

The 29-year-old righty was a massive part of the 2017 pen, but has been mostly a no-show in 2018. Will he eventually stick around?

The Yankee bullpen has been a strength throughout the season, but one of the members that contributed heavily to its success in 2017 has largely been missing in action this year. Tommy Kahnle has spent the majority of the season down in Scranton after being placed on the disabled list back in April following an ineffective six appearances. He has bounced back...

Yankees beat the Blue Jays and the rain

The Yankees got the go ahead runs in just in time.

If after the top of the first inning, someone told you this game would be rain-shortened, that would have seemed like bad news for the Yankees. As it turns out, everything was fine.

Lance Lynn gave up four first inning runs, and wouldn’t last five frames, as he ran into his first real struggles as a Yankee. Thankfully for him, the offense picked up the slack after a disappointing series against the Rays. Neil Walker provided a crucial...
