Fleeting moments make a baseball season unique

We tend to judge an entire season in generalities, but we should appreciate the small moments that get us through a full season.

Even when your team is winning you can sometimes get lost in the day-after-day nature of baseball. One game blends into the next as you work your way through 162, and when the season ends we often generalize what that season was like based on the final outcome. I tend to fall into this trap, where the brief moments that...

Aaron Judge Is Showing That the Yankees Are Still His Team

Following a slow start to the season, many baseball fans debated if New York Yankees captain Aaron Judge was slipping into Juan Soto‘s shadow. Fast forward to the end of May and Judge has put that slow start behind him – very far behind him.

The Yankees pitching lab has churned out a new weapon

Kim Klement Neitzel-USA TODAY Sports

Two years ago, it was the sweeper. This year, the changeup is the latest off the pitch design conveyor belt.

Back in spring 2022, we caught wind of a new phenomenon hot out of the Yankees pitching lab — what Lindsey Adler, then of The Athletic, termed the ‘whirly’ slider. We’ve seen this pitch sweep its was across the league in the intervening period, practically every major league rotation and bullpen in possession of multiple variants of...

1999 Diary, May 29: Cone cruises in Canada

On this day 25 years ago, the Yankees continued their excellent run against the Blue Jays.

It can’t have been too much fun to have been an AL East team in the Yankees 1996-2000 dominant period. Just as an example, in the historic 1998 season, the Yankees went 33-15 against their four AL East foes, winning the division by 22 games. The one team that regular played the Yankees close that year was the Toronto Blue Jays, who managed a...

Rivalry Roundup: Red Sox do Yanks a solid in Baltimore

It’s not every day that Yankees fans are glad about a Red Sox victory, but Boston’s 8-3 win at Camden Yards helped the Yankees on a tough night.

I had a nice little introduction planned where I would briefly touch on the Yankees winning late out in Anaheim after most of their top opponents had already played. Instead, they blew a late lead to a bad team. It was pretty dumb! Read Josh for more because I’d rather just flush that game out of my...

Which minor-league hitters are next up on the Yankees’ depth chart?

The Yankees have a few guys who could contribute this year, either in the short-term or later in the summer.

The Yankees entered play on Tuesday with MLB’s top offense by both OPS (.773) and wRC+ (122), with Aaron Judge and Juan Soto helping the team to a league-best 81 homers. This year’s group of position players is deeper and better than that of last year, and the results on the field are evident. Still, injuries...

The West Coast trip has reached peak West Coast vibes.

There’s just something about West Coast trips that lead to some weird baseball being played. Whether its in Oakland, Anaheim, Seattle, you name it — there’s been some funky stuff that happens late at night when the majority of folks over on the East Coast are already asleep that leads to some frustrating losses. The Yankees have been bitten by this curse lately, dropping their second...

Yankees 3, Angels 4: Mishaps in the eighth seal series opener

Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

The Yankees didn’t get a man on past the fifth, and it cost them dearly in Anaheim.

This one’s a stinker. The Yankees got another solid start, Tommy Kahnle looked good despite throwing only four pitches, and Juan Soto had a bloop and a blast. But Luke Weaver couldn’t be perfect, and a late defensive lapse from Anthony Rizzo helped doom the Yanks in a game they should have won. The Angels took advantage and took the series opener, 4-3.

NYY @ LAA: Nestor Cortes vs. Griffin Canning

The Yankees open up the second leg of this West Coast tour with the southpaw on the bump.

After a successful weekend in San Diego, the Yankees turn slightly north to Anaheim for a trio of games with the Angels. LAA is in the doghouse of the AL West, and this does feel like a little bit of a trap series, even with how well New York’s been playing. Nestor Cortes will be tasked with preventing that kind of a disappointing turn, and he does seem...
