Even Michael Pineda good news isn’t all that good

BOSTON — In his previous start, Michael Pineda was done in by the four homers he gave up in just five innings. So, if you’re desperate for good news, you will be pleased to learn the Red Sox didn’t go deep against Pineda once Saturday. But because it’s Pineda — and the Yankees can’t seem...

Yankees’ hitting problems are just getting embarrassing now

BOSTON — Well, the good news is the Yankees have found a solution for their problems with runners in scoring position: Put fewer runners in scoring position. Yes, the Yankees’ offense is getting worse — in tandem with their chances of climbing out of this extended funk. Their latest face plant occurred Saturday night at...

A-Rod (probably) disarms Red Sox fans with touching bat gift

BOSTON — Alex Rodriguez still was booed at Fenway Park during Saturday’s 8-0 loss to the Red Sox, but he probably made a few fans Friday — when he gave the bat he hit a home run with to a young fan at Friday’s game. The fan, David Moss, told MLB.com he asked if he...

Young Yankees fans now dealing with suffering — and older fans

There is a generation gap brewing in our midst, one that threatens to grow even wider and more divisive than the one that inspired the term in the first place back in the 1960s. Call it the Yankee Cred Gap. There is a generation-plus of Yankees fans who have known only one thing about the...

Michael Pineda, Nate Eovaldi, and the struggle to manage contact

Three nights ago Nathan Eovaldi threw the best game by a Yankee this season. He took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and finished the night with two hits allowed in seven scoreless frames. Eovaldi has dazzled at times earlier this season, but it was always followed by the One Bad Inning. He avoided that […] The post Michael Pineda, Nate Eovaldi, and the struggle to manage contact appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

9 strikeouts, 4 homers: Girardi can’t even figure out Pineda

There is good news from Michael Pineda’s otherwise ugly outing on Sunday. He didn’t suffer whiplash despite his head snapping back after each of the four home runs he allowed to the Rays. That was about the only positive for the inconsistent right-hander, who was roughed up for 10 hits and seven earned runs over...

How DL’ing A-Rod could be 1st domino to jump-start Yankees

Come to think of it, we’ve talked plenty about the notion of an Alex Rodriguez injury bailout, haven’t we? Just in a different context. In spring training of 2015, it made plenty of sense that A-Rod, decimated by his surgically repaired hips and having missed a year due to his bad-behavior suspension, would be forced...

‘I got no idea’: Yankees baffled at their lefty kryptonite

The offensive numbers are ugly to begin with. They get even tougher to look at when a left-handed pitcher is on the mound. The Yankees lost Sunday for the sixth time in eight games against a southpaw, when Drew Smyly tossed seven innings of one-run ball in Tampa Bay’s 8-1 pasting of the Yankees at...

Michael Pineda gives up 4 HRs in Yankees' 8-1 loss to Rays

The Yankees started righthander Michael Pineda, but the Rays apparently thought he was introduced as Michael "Piñata," judging by the way they battered him in a five-run first inning Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Pineda settled down to go five innings and strike out nine, but there was no recovering from the early damage in an 8-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

Changeup was a big help for Pineda against the Athletics

Tuesday night Michael Pineda turned in his best start of the young season, holding the admittedly offensively challenged Athletics to two runs in six innings. He had a long second inning thanks to some grounders that beat the shift, but otherwise the A’s didn’t put too much pressure on him. Big Mike had to grind […] The post Changeup was a big help for Pineda against the Athletics appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
