Cesar Cabral Designated After Last Night’s Debacle

The Yankees looked like they were on the way to another win early on. Hiroki Kuroda pitched well, but once turned over to the bullpen things got ugly. Especially for left handed reliever Cesar Cabral. Cabral could not find the strike zone or record an out to save his life. He ended up hitting 3 batters and was ejected from the game just as manager Joe Girardi was about to pull him...

New York Yankees double header shutout sweep

You read that correctly boys and girls the New York Yankees successfully achieved their first double header shutout sweep since April 9th of 1987. Their 3-0 and 2-0 wins over the Cubs earlier this week gave the team a refresher on what it feels like to blow another team out of the water not once but two times back-to-back. Surely this felt good for the Bombers and their staff, bringing...

New York Yankees Go Around The Horn For Triple Play

New York Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte is quietly becoming a mainstay for the Bronx Bombers with his consistent bat to start the 2014 season. However, this time around Solarte did it with his glove starting the 5-4-3 around the horn triple-play in the second inning of the Yankees tilt with the Tampa Bay Rays.

WATCH: Yankees turn first triple play of 2014 MLB season

For a pitcher, there is no better gift than a triple play.  Two on, no out, big inning pending.  Then it all goes away thanks to tags, throws, and gloves.  Watch as the New York Yankees clean up the 2nd inning for ace C.C. Sabathia by going around the horn, Yangervis Solarte, to Brian Roberts, to Scott Sizemore, who made a nice scoop in the dirt.  That’s 5-4-3 if you’re scoring...

Tanaka and Pineda are about to become THE NEXT BIG THING

It's already happened to me: A start by CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova or Hiroki Kuroda has become a yawner. What's the point? We know what will happen. CC will give up three, maybe four runs, and he will keep us in games, until he hits an iceberg in August, and needs a rest. Nova will throw well one day, then get bombed. Kuroda will be lights out, until Joe leaves him in too long...
