The Yankees are waiting for the outfield to fire on all cylinders

The Yankees are waiting for the outfield to fire on all cylinders

We have yet to see the Yankees outfield collectively mash at the plate. Now’s as good a time as any. When the 2018 season began, the Yankees boasted a crowded outfield that could hurt opponents with unmatched power at the plate, particularly with the addition of Giancarlo Stanton. Aaron Judge and Stanton, both Gold Glove Award nominees and the two top home run hitters of 2017, highlighted an outfield that also had Brett Gardner and the ever-improving Aaron Hicks. Fast forward six months, and the Yankees are still looking for that outfield to fire on all cylinders — at least at the...

The Yankees’ defense might cost them a deep playoff run

The Yankees’ offense and strikeout-heavy pitching can’t always paper over their defensive weaknesses. One of the cruelest things about baseball is that it lets you dream. I dreamed of denying the Red Sox the pleasure of clinching the AL East at Yankee Stadium, and the Yankees did their darnedest...

Victor Martinez retiring after today’s game

Victor Martinez retiring after today’s game

Detroit DH Victor Martinez announced that today’s game, in front of the home fans, will be the final game of his career Victor Martinez of the Detroit Tigers is retiring, with today’s game being his final one, he announced yesterday.

deGrom all but nails down the Cy Young as Mets eliminate Nationals

deGrom all but nails down the Cy Young as Mets eliminate Nationals

deGrom lowered his ERA to 1.77 and the Mets gave him enough run support to earn the win. Jacob deGrom broke another record tonight. His 23 consecutive quality starts are the most in a single season. This time, he got a win to show for it, as the Mets defeated the Nationals 4-2 in Washington. In a rather shocking turn of events, deGrom was granted the lead before he even took the mound. The Mets got to Joe Ross with a run in the top of the first, thanks to an Amed Rosario double and a Jay Bruce single that put them on the board. deGrom put up a zero in the bottom of the frame, striking out...

Game Recap: Gurriel Powers Astros Over Halos, 11-3

Game Recap: Gurriel Powers Astros Over Halos, 11-3

Cole mows down 12 Angels. It was a Gurriel night. A night of Gurriel power. Pina power. The first two home run night of his Astros career. A night when he increased his own home run total for the year by 20%. When he went from an exactly league average hitter for the season to 5 % above league average in one night. His seven RBI were more than enough for the Astros to cruise to victory over the Los Angeles Angels, 7-3. Gurriel put the Astros up 4-0 in the first with a grand slam, just fair and just over the right field fence. It was only the second opposite field home run hit by Yuli in...

Kurt Suzuki gets the start in high stakes matinee

It’ll be Kurt Suzuki’s turn to catch Mike Foltynewicz today. The Braves have become an offensive juggernaut over the last couple of games again thanks in part to going up against a Phillies staff that has completely fallen apart over the last month. The lineup you see today very well could be the starters in game one of the NLDS. However, if the Braves clinch today you can expect to see them give some guys rest between now and the playoffs.
