Yankees avoid humiliation and steal win in one-hit escape

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — One hit in nine innings produced two runs and a skinny lead for the Yankees on Sunday. To the Rays, who had to face Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman during the final three innings, the one-run lead might as well have been a double-digit bulge. Working in the same...

Why Girardi was thrilled to use Yankees’ improvised pen ‘Big 3’

No bullpen is as consistently intimidating as the Yankees’, no sight so routinely demoralizing as the outfield door in The Bronx swinging open and Dellin Betances emerging or Andrew Miller appearing or Aroldis Chapman arriving. For Joe Girardi, no trio has ever made a lead feel so safe, but no sight is sweeter for the...

Yankees’ pen freaks are more devastating than we thought

On April 18, three weeks remained on Aroldis Chapman’s 30-day suspension for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller were dominating hitters with ease and people were wondering how much better Chapman’s return would make the Yankees’ late-inning bullpen. On that mid-April day, former Yankees reliever Mike Stanton said the potential for...

DotF: Mateo plays second base for first time in Tampa win

The day’s notes: Keith Law (subs. req’d) redrafted the first round of the 2006 amateur draft. Based on what we know now, Law has three 2006 Yankees draftees in the top 15: Dellin Betances (No. 13), David Robertson (No. 14), and Ian Kennedy (No. 15). Joba Chamberlain, Mark Melancon, Zach McAllister, and George Kontos were […] The post DotF: Mateo plays second base for first time in Tampa win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Chase Headley — really — has Yankees suddenly surging

Chase Headley’s return from the abyss allowed the Yankees to finish off a homestand they hope will do the same for their season. The third baseman delivered the game-winning hit with a two-out, pinch-hit double in the seventh — after Dellin Betances blew the lead in the top of the inning — in a back-and-forth...

Has Yankees’ epic 3-headed monster arrived too late?

They loom, they lurk, they await. They sit more than 400 feet from home plate most of the game, are guaranteed not to appear in the first half of any contest, and yet Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman are part of every pitch. The trio hung over Saturday’s game as sure as the...

Yankees 2, White Sox 1: Little support for Jose Quintana

New York's bullpen strikes out eight of the ten batters faced. The trio of Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, and Andrew Miller got the best of Chicago shutting down the late inning magic to preserve the 2-1 victory. In a game that featured very little offense, New York's two-run mini explosion was just enough to best one of the best starters in the American League, in Jose Quintana. Chase Headley started the rally with a two-out walk. Former Minnesota Twins Aaron Hicks doubled to center field to score Headley. Didi Gregorius, who was 3 for 3, singled to right field scoring Hicks to make...

Yankees’ devastating trio is everything they dreamed

The chatter following the Yankees’ 2-1 win over the White Sox on Saturday afternoon in The Bronx focused mostly on what happened at the end. That’s when manager Joe Girardi finally was able to use all three parts of the back end of his fearsome bullpen — with Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman...

Starlin Castro deserves credit for Yankees’ respectability

This looked like it would be the one Thursday night. The debut of the Yankees’ bullpen package deal — Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman — in tandem, one after the other, mowing down the opposition to lock down a pinstriped W. Instead, the Yankees built a big enough lead that Joe Girardi passed...

Drifting release points costing Betances deception, but it hasn’t mattered yet

After 122 starts and parts of eight seasons in the minors, the Yankees finally pulled the plug on Dellin Betances as a starting pitcher in Triple-A four years ago. His control problems were not going away — he walked 99 batters in 131.1 innings in 2012 — and there’s only so long you can wait […] The post Drifting release points costing Betances deception, but it hasn’t mattered yet appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Chapman is back, and now the Yankees have to figure out the middle innings

The back-end of the bullpen is an undeniable strength for the Yankees. A case can be made Aroldis Chapman is the best reliever in baseball. The same is true of Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances. All three are Yankees, so when it comes to the late innings of close games, Joe Girardi‘s collection of power […] The post Chapman is back, and now the Yankees have to figure out the middle innings appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 28: Short-Handed

The Yankees never seem to win an easy game these days, and last night’s win was easily the biggest nail-biter of the season. Between injuries and workloads, the team is pretty short-handed today. Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is banged up, Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) and CC Sabathia (groin) are on the DL, and neither Dellin Betances nor […] The post Game 28: Short-Handed appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Cashman on possible shake-up: “There are no changes in store”

The Yankees are in a bad place right now. They’ve lost five straight and 13 of their last 17 games to fall to 8-15 on the young season. Only the Twins, Astros, and Braves have worse records. Their -31 run differential is fifth worst in baseball as well. Now that Dellin Betances is giving up […] The post Cashman on possible shake-up: “There are no changes in store” appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
