Red Sox can’t hide from their sad Yankees reality It was only a week ago that the dream seemed possible. The Red Sox had crept within eight games of the Yankees in the AL East, having bludgeoned them in the first three games of a four-game set at Fenway Park. Now, it seems like a fantasy. The Red Sox haven’t won since last Saturday......
21:39 2019-08-03

Yankees’ first priority must be to finish off the Red Sox now Imagine a universe in which Ellis Kinder outpitched Vic Raschi on the final day of the 1949 season, Mike Torrez struck out Bucky Dent in the playoff game at Fenway in 1978 and Grady Little pulled Pedro Martinez with a 5-2 lead after seven innings of work in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS. You’re......

Yankees getting reinforcements soon — likely in more ways than one Giancarlo Stanton played right field in his second rehab game with Single-A Tampa on Wednesday night and could return to the Yankees as soon as Monday, just in time for them to face the Rays for what figures to be an important week, since AL West-leading Houston follows Tampa Bay into The Bronx. Aar...

This is Yankees savagery at its finest MINNEAPOLIS — Since Aaron Boone let the world know his hitters are savages in the box, in much more colorful language than that, the Yankees have averaged 7.5 runs per game. They were their most savage Tuesday night at Target Field when they pounded out 20 hits, crushed two home runs, Didi Gregorius...

Yankees look old and broken down, and it has to stop CHICAGO — The Yankees looked old and tired Friday night. Remember when we used to say that all the time about this club, even as it slogged its way to championships or at least division titles? The great sell-off of 2016, which begat the Baby Bombers, made way for a new, exciting era which neverthel...

The Rockies Tried Their Best To Kill The Yankees The Rockies and Yankees are having two very different seasons, with the Bronx Bombers having the best record in the American League and the purple lads from Colorado being trapped in a tailspin on the way to being the worst team in the National League not named the Marlins. Given that conventional m...

Yankees using T-shirts to let everyone know they’re ‘savages’ Savagery is in style. Following Thursday’s instantly epic, profanity-filled, ejection-fueled rant, Aaron Boone’s popularity in The Bronx elevated to its highest point since his legendary Game 7 walk-off homer in the 2003 ALCS. Before the Yankees manager arrived back home, his words had been emblazon...

Clint Frazier once again could soon be Yankees’ odd man out Clint Frazier was scheduled to sit against Chris Sale in the Yankees’ series-opener with the Red Sox before Thursday’s game was rained out in The Bronx, with Aaron Boone saying the outfielder was due for a day off. It seemed strange timing, though, with the lefty Sale scheduled to be on the mound an...

The big test is here for two rehabbing Yankees BOSTON — Luis Severino gave the Yankees more than 30 starts and 190 innings in each of the previous two seasons.

Yankees’ takedown of Red Sox includes bit of everything BOSTON — At some point, the litany of injuries that have hit the Yankees this season may catch up to them. So far, that hasn’t happened, as they won again despite losing another key player Sunday. This time, it was Mike Tauchman who left during a 10-5 victory over the Red Sox at Fenway Park.......

Yankees’ big guns were needed after all BALTIMORE — Considering they were a combined 10-for-26 with seven homers and 14 RBIs in the previous three wins over the Orioles, not seeing Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres in the starting lineup of the Yankees’ 6-5 win over the Orioles on Thursday was a mild surprise. Neither was hurt, but Sa...

Yankees get sweet Red Sox revenge, and then rub it in BOSTON — To a man, each player who was here a year ago, when the Yankees had their season ended by the Red Sox in the ALDS, said they didn’t place much importance on knocking Boston out of the AL East race on Monday night. But there was “New York, New York’’ blaring from the......

Why ‘run line’ could be important when it comes to the Yankees It’s becoming clear that Yankees backers are going to be looking at the “run line” on almost a daily basis through the rest of the 2019 season. Basic money lines are going to be so expensive versus mediocrities and virtual tankers that fans will be risking more than they’re comfortable with. Rooting...

Aaron Judge’s value to Yankees is so much more than homers SEATTLE — This is a Yankees truth: When Aaron Judge is going well, everything seems better around the team. The mood is brighter.

Why Rays aren’t going to catch the Yankees Last weekend, VSiN studied key indicator categories for bettors to evaluate the chances that the Red Sox might catch the Yankees in the American League East race.

Marcus Stroman shows Yankees all they need to see Doing nothing can’t be an option. No option ranks as a slam-dunk, can’t-miss, blame-the-baseball-gods-if-it-doesn’t-work situation.

It’s panic time for Yankees’ J.A. Happ The next time J.A. Happ takes the ball for the Yankees, they will have passed the season’s halfway point.

When Yankees could move CC Sabathia to the bullpen TORONTO — CC Sabathia has pitched 559 regular-season big league games and has started all of them.

The book is still out on Yankees’ young starter CLEVELAND — As the 2019 Yankees try to avoid registering their first calendar decade without winning a pennant since 1910-1919, this is no time to contemplate macro issues.

Yankees’ Brett Gardner has to end his bat antics There is a reason the Yankees keep bending and twisting their roster year to year to keep Brett Gardner on the team, even if he’s only 85 percent the player he used to be.
