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.

Christian Vazquez heeds Chili Davis’ advice, hits longest home run of life

As Jackie Bradley Jr. said after witnessing the event from a few feet away, while waiting in the on-deck circle, “One pitch in, one pitch out.” It seemed simple. And maybe that’s why Christian Vazquez was able to hit Dellin Betances’ 97 mph fastball onto Landsowne Street to propel the Red Sox to an 8-7 […]

The Yankees really can’t afford hittable Dellin Betances

BOSTON — The home run surrendered to Brett Nicholas in Texas proved Dellin Betances was mortal. The home run he gave up to David Ortiz that provided the winning margin against the Red Sox on Friday, well, that could happen to anyone against the future Hall of Famer. But the home run Betances coughed up...

1st of 4 steps to saving the Yankees: Bench Chase Headley

BOSTON — Start small and think big. There’s your solution to the Yankees’ early-season misery. The Yankees’ offense woke up Sunday night at Fenway Park against David Price, so naturally, their pitching fell apart, with Nathan Eovaldi, Ivan Nova and Dellin Betances teaming for an 8-7 loss to the Red Sox, a series sweep by...

Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller are not only dominant, they’re efficient too

As Yankees fans, we’ve been privileged to watch some stellar bullpen work in our lifetimes. Older fans (no offense!) can go back to Sparky Lyle, Goose Gossage, and Dave Righetti. More recently you have Mariano Rivera, David Robertson, and, of course, Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller. In less than two weeks Aroldis Chapman will join […] The post Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller are not only dominant, they’re efficient too appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The book is out on Yanks’ flaws, which may waste huge weapons

Imagine having Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and being unable to get them the ball. You would have arguably the greatest weapons in your sport and the inability to deploy them — where are the useful picks, the shrewd passes? This is the Yankees with Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller. They have — in the...

Yankees rally twice, defeat Rays 6-3

NEW YORK - Rays manager Kevin Cash talked about the Yankees the other day, talked about how to beat them. "Get a lead early, I guess," Cashs aid. The reason is the one-two punch of Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller in the bullpen. With them the Yankees can make it a seven-

Game #15: A's at Yankees

The A's hope to continue their hot streak against the New York Yankees in game 2 of their 10-game East Coast road trip. Hello everyone! The A's got a brutal 10-game East Coast road trip started on the right foot yesterday with a 1-run win against NY (AL). The bullpen continued to look nails, outdueling yet another of the best relief corps in baseball to lock down the extra innings victory. MLB Central still pretends that the Yankees bullpen is the only one in existence, but the A's managed a couple of hits against the mighty Dellin Betances and sneakily have some of the best relief pitching...

We’ve never seen anything like Yankees’ strikeout machines

From just inside the dugout railing, CC Sabathia has a front-row seat to baseball’s premier act, one that has people throughout the game buzzing. “It’s fun to watch and see how confident they are,’’ Sabathia said of Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller dominating big-league hitters. Fun for Sabathia and the Yankees. Hell for the folks...

The great stuff lurking in the Mariners' bullpen

In the Golden Age of Bullpens, the Mariners have assembled a final innings rotation of comparatively pedestrian stuff. But below the surface, elite velocity and breaking pitches are lurking. Yesterday's loss was a defined by a growing sense of dread and helplessness. Once Steve Clevenger allowed a ball to wiggle through the five-hole, allowing Brett Gardner to score from the 3rd and putting the Yankees up 4-3 in the 5th you felt the Mariners had, realistically, two innings to score before the game was over. There was a reason for that, or rather, two reasons: Dellin Betances and Andrew...

Yanks’ bullpen is redefining nasty — with monstrous help coming

One of life’s indisputable guidelines is that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, the back end of the Yankees’ bullpen is as close to flawless as you can get. And it soon will get fixed with an upgrade. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller each faced three Mariners Sunday, each recorded three strikeouts in...
