NYY vs. HOU: Jameson Taillon vs. Framber Valdez

NYY vs. HOU: Jameson Taillon vs. Framber Valdez

Photo by Adam Hunger/ The Bombers open a critical four-game set against the Astros with Jameson Taillon on the bump. Even sitting at 51-18, the biggest criticism of the Yankees — whether fair or not — has been to question the level of competition they’ve beaten. To say nothing of their most recent 7-2 stretch against the Rays, Blue Jays, and Rays again, I think we can discard any notion of facing weak opponents after this four-game marquee matchup against the Astros — the only other AL team above 40 wins and clear second-best team in the league. Tonight is the...

Framber Valdez Has Taken The Next Step

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports The 2021 season was a bit of an up-and-down experience for Framber Valdez following his breakout during the abbreviated campaign in 2020. Thanks to a freak finger injury in Spring Training, the left-hander had a delayed start to his season; he also experienced a handful of bad outings in the postseason that was more akin to his pre-2020 performance. Sandwiched in between was a mix of quality starts with the occasional clunker. While the year-to-year change in his ERA hinted at improvement, some indicators pointed to Valdez experiencing his...
