On the Yankees and a storybook ending

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Do you believe in miracles? On Thursday night, the Yankees played one of the most demoralizing games in recent memory. Sure, the Astros trounced the Bombers in their own yard, but that only accounted for a fraction of the misery. New York played an uninspired game on both sides of the ball, and the wheels came right off. The team had more errors than runs, took hapless at-bats in pivotal situations—they loaded the bases twice and scored one run on a walk!—and CC Sabathia’s career came to a brutal conclusion as he suffered a left shoulder subluxation on...

Why the Yankees shouldn’t place Giancarlo Stanton on the injured list

Why the Yankees shouldn’t place Giancarlo Stanton on the injured list

Photo by Bob Levey/ Doing so would end his season, and that’s not a risk worth taking. Four games into the ALCS, Giancarlo Stanton has only played in one of them. In his lone game against the Houston Astros, Stanton went yard, and boosted his 2019 postseason triple slash to .300/.467/.600 in four games. When Stanton was playing, he proved he could have an impact in the 2019 playoffs. However, an untimely quad injury has cast a pall over the situation. With the Yankees fighting for their lives in this ALCS and doing so with essentially a 24-man roster until Stanton is healthy enough to...

The last decade when the Yankees didn't win an American League pennant

It was the 1910s, and that 10-year span was far less positive and successful than the 2010s, where the Yankees are one game shy of matching the feat.

The 1952 World Series was one of the most impressive comebacks in history

Photo by Nick Laham/ The Yankees came out victorious in 1952 despite being in a hole for a large portion of the series. If the Yankees are to win the ALCS, they are going to do it by coming from behind. There’s plenty of history of Yankees’ teams doing that over the years. Their last postseason series win prior to this year was the 2017 ALDS, where they won in five after dropping the first two games. That matched the comeback they pulled off in the 2001 ALDS against Oakland. There was the 1996 World Series, where the Yankees won four straight after losing the first two games. It...

The Yankees sure have missed Dellin Betances against the Astros

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports The power reliever would have been a fantastic addition to the bullpen, but fate (and injuries) didn’t want it to happen. The New York Yankees quickly dispatched a good Minnesota Twins team in a three-game Division Series sweep. Everybody knew that the Houston Astros, though, were going to pose a significantly harder challenge, and that the Bombers would need to use all of their resources to even the odds. Granted, the Yankees’ bullpen is better than the Astros’ on paper, which is important given Houston’s clear advantage in the starting rotation....

Yankees on the brink of elimination after ugly loss to the Astros

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports The Astros take a 3-1 lead in the ALCS and have the Yankees on the verge of collapse. The Yankees absolutely needed this game to get their footing back in the ALCS. They didn’t get it. Plagued by a combination of stranded runners by their bats and some big blows given up by their pitching, the Yankees fell behind and could never catch back up. Houston asserted control after limiting the damage early against the Bombers, ultimately winning Game Four 8-3 and taking a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. The first inning presented an opportunity for the...
