After a rough regular season, Masahiro Tanaka has become the postseason ace the Yankees need

Four years ago the Yankees signed Masahiro Tanaka hoping he would do what he is doing right now. They signed him expecting him to be an impact pitcher, especially in the postseason, one who would help the Yankees get to the World Series. The Yankees aren’t in the World Series yet, but they’re a win […] The post After a rough regular season, Masahiro Tanaka has become the postseason ace the Yankees need appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts following Game Five of the 2017 ALCS

The Yankees are one win away from going to the World Series. I can’t believe it. They’ve turned an 0-2 series deficit into a 3-2 series lead for the second straight series. Three wins were enough to beat the Indians in the ALDS. The Yankees still need one more win to get to finish off […] The post Thoughts following Game Five of the 2017 ALCS appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees 5, Astros 0: Tanaka, Judge, and Sanchez carry Yanks to 3-2 lead in ALCS

The 2017 New York Baseball Yankees are one win away from going to the World Series. What a time to be alive. The Yankees finally — finally! — solved Dallas Keuchel in ALCS Game Five on Wednesday night, en route to a 5-0 win and a 3-2 series lead. Hell of a rebuilding year, eh?

2017 ALCS Game Five: Astros at Yankees

Welcome to the best-of-three ALCS. The Astros won the first two games, the Yankees the last two games. It’s a new series, and it starts this evening at Yankee Stadium, where the Yankees are undefeated this postseason. They’re a perfect 5-0 at home and have outscored their opponents 30-12 in the five games, which of […] The post 2017 ALCS Game Five: Astros at Yankees appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The Yanks might see a different Dallas Keuchel in Game Five

Once again, the Yankees have battled back from down 2-0 in a postseason series to knot things up 2-2. They did it against the Indians in the ALDS and now they’ve done it against the Astros in the ALCS. Their reward: Dallas Keuchel in Game Five and Justin Verlander in Game Six. That’s no fun.

The small things added up in Yankees’ Game Four win

Whenever you have a big win, some big things have to go your way. A homer here, a double there, a strikeout here, a double play there. This all kind of goes without saying. But there are also the little things that change everything. The borderline strike call. The tiny bit of experience you have […] The post The small things added up in Yankees’ Game Four win appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts prior to Game Five of the 2017 ALCS

So are we having fun this postseason or what? Once again, the Yankees have fought back from down 0-2 in a series to even things up 2-2. They did it against the Indians in the ALDS, and now the Astros are getting a taste of the Fighting Spirit in the ALCS. That win was amazing […] The post Thoughts prior to Game Five of the 2017 ALCS appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees 6, Astros 4: Judge and Sanchez lead Yanks to come-from-behind win in Game Four

You didn’t doubt the Fighting Spirit, did you? The October ghosts have returned to Yankees baseball. I’ve missed them. The Yankees mounted a remarkable comeback in Game Four of the ALCS on Tuesday night to even the series at 2-2. The final score: 6-4. Holy moly. This team, you guys. I never want this to […] The post Yankees 6, Astros 4: Judge and Sanchez lead Yanks to come-from-behind win in Game Four appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2017 ALCS Game Four: Astros at Yankees

A very strong case can be made this is the most important game of the ALCS. The Astros lead the series 2-1, meaning the Yankees need to win today to avoid falling down 3-1 in the series before facing Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander in Games Five and Six. Having to beat Keuchel and Verlander […] The post 2017 ALCS Game Four: Astros at Yankees appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Houston Astros at New York Yankees: ALCS Game 4 GameThread...

New York’s Yankees got back in the ALCS with an 8-1 win last night in Yankee Stadium, now they try to even things up with the Houston Astros... Back in Yankee Stadium last night, the New York Yankees avoided falling behind 3-0 in the ALCS with an 8-1 win over the Astros after they’d dropped the first two games of the series in Houston. Joe Girardi was asked what it was about Yankee Stadium, where the Yankees were 51-30 (vs 40-41 outside of the Bronx) this season, that allowed them to play so much better than they have on the road. “We're somewhat built for this ballpark, No. 1,”...

The outlook for the upcoming ALCS games

Alright, we’ve seen this before. Down 2-1 in the series but a win tonight would tie it up. Gotta win few more games in a row from here on, right? Well, the Yankees could do that (again), but if only it were that simple. Winning three against a team like the Indians after being down […] The post The outlook for the upcoming ALCS games appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Sonny Gray must get his control back on track for the Yankees to have a chance in Game Four

Last week, when the Yankees lined up their ALCS rotation, they opted to start trade deadline pickup Sonny Gray in Game Four even though he started Game One of the ALDS and could’ve started Game One of the ALCS. The Yankees had Gray throw an extended three-inning simulated game on Thursday to stay sharp, though […] The post Sonny Gray must get his control back on track for the Yankees to have a chance in Game Four appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts prior to Game Four of the 2017 ALCS

Now we’ve got a series on our hands. After dropping Games One and Two of the ALCS in Houston, the Yankees returned home to Yankee Stadium to win Game Three last night. They still trail the series 2-1, but according to the laws of sports momentum, they will go undefeated the rest of the postseason […] The post Thoughts prior to Game Four of the 2017 ALCS appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees 8, Astros 1: Judge breaks out, Sabathia shuts down Astros in Game Three

Alright, now we have a series. After getting stifled by Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander in Games One and Two of the ALCS, the Yankees bounced back with a big 8-1 win in Game Three on Monday night. Good hitting, good pitching, good defense. This one had it all. The Astros still lead the series […] The post Yankees 8, Astros 1: Judge breaks out, Sabathia shuts down Astros in Game Three appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2017 ALCS Game Three: Astros at Yankees

Once again, the Yankees return home in a postseason series down 0-2. And, once again, they’re faced with having to make a big comeback against a 100+ win team. The Yankees made that comeback against the Indians in the ALDS. Can they do it against the Astros in the ALCS? I mean, sure, of course […] The post 2017 ALCS Game Three: Astros at Yankees appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

New York’s Yankees try to avoid falling behind 3-0 in their ALCS matchup with the Houston Astros when the two teams shift venues to Yankee Stadium tonight. Having dropped the first two games of their ALCS matcup with the Houston Astros, the New York Yankees try to regroup tonight when the series shifts venues. Charlie Morton and C.C. Sabathia match up tonight in Game 3 of the American League’s Championship Series at 8:00 PM EDT in Yankee Stadium. Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi was asked how he thought his team would react to being behind 2-0 with their backs against the wall in the...

Tommy Kahnle went from having an undefined role during the regular season to being a postseason weapon

I don’t think Brian Cashman or the Yankees would admit it, but when they made the big trade with the White Sox back in July, righty Tommy Kahnle was the key piece. Todd Frazier is a rental player and David Robertson, while awesome, is owed quite a bit of a money next season. Kahnle was […] The post Tommy Kahnle went from having an undefined role during the regular season to being a postseason weapon appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Scouting Game Three of the ALCS: Charlie Morton

Despite allowing four runs total in Games One and Two of the ALCS in Houston, the Yankees return home to New York for Game Three down 0-2 in the series. Annoying! Very annoying, really. The Yankees have been here before though. They came home down 0-2 to the Indians in the ALDS, and that was […] The post Scouting Game Three of the ALCS: Charlie Morton appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts prior to Game Three of the 2017 ALCS

After two close games at Minute Maid Park, the ALCS now shifts to Yankee Stadium for Games Three and Four and, hopefully, Five. The Yankees are down 0-2 in the series and hey, they’ve been here before. They just came back from down 0-2 against the Indians in the ALDS. That doesn’t mean they’ll do […] The post Thoughts prior to Game Three of the 2017 ALCS appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
