Nestor Cortes should be one of the Yankees at the All-Star Game

Nestor Cortes should be one of the Yankees at the All-Star Game

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The southpaw hasn’t been quite as dominant in his last three starts as he was in his first ten, but his overall body of work is still fantastic. Nestor Cortes was a monster to begin the season. He was the first Yankees pitcher to open the year with a sub-1.50 ERA and at least 65 strikeouts in his first ten starts. That excellent performance was enough for our own Joe LoGrippo to write that he was making a strong case to start the All-Star Game in July; and you know what? He was right. At the time, Nasty Nestor was perhaps the most deserving...

Yankees 0, Astros 3: New York is no-hit by three Houston pitchers

Yankees 0, Astros 3: New York is no-hit by three Houston pitchers

Jessica Alcheh-USA TODAY Sports Boo, to all of this. I think we’ve seen four no-hit bids by Yankee starters this year, and I was fortunate enough to recap Corey Kluber’s no no last year, and I gotta say after today, I much prefer being on the giving end of those kind of games to the receiving. Cristian Javier flummoxed the Yankees through seven innings, and two Astros relievers picked up the rest, as New York was no hit for the first time since 2003, losing 3-0. Gerrit Cole is the unsung hero of the game, keeping the Yankees in it despite the lineup’s general...

Anthony Rizzo and lefty magic

Anthony Rizzo and lefty magic

Photo by Mark Blinch/ The Yankees have wanted a left-handed batter in the #3 spot forever. It looks like they’ve found their man I’m writing this on Friday morning, watching a replay of the Thursday walk-off win over the Astros, and a funny thing is occurring to me. The premise of this piece is how valuable Anthony Rizzo has been, not just in the lineup generally but in the three-hole specifically, and I was going to use his incredible, unbelievable, 16-pitch walk in the sixth inning as a framing device, but actually, I think its more appropriate to look at Aaron...

Bill Madden: Yankees clear first hurdle with Aaron Judge, but what’s next for super slugger?

Aaron Judge’s ongoing contract drama with the Yankees has cleared the first hurdle with an (apparently) amicable arbitration settlement at the midway point of $19 million.

Yankees finding common ground with Aaron Judge is a step in the right direction

Yankees finding common ground with Aaron Judge is a step in the right direction

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Allowing myself to feel optimism for future accord. Of course it had to be Aaron Judge. On the eve of his arbitration hearing. On a night when we might’ve permitted the first tendrils of doubt over the legitimacy of the team’s record to creep in. The MVP frontrunner, the face of the franchise, the homegrown hero delivered as only he could. Less than 24 hours later, we got news that he and the Yankees would avoid their arbitration hearing, settling on a $19 million contract for 2022 with additional incentive-based escalators. We could rejoice...

Ron Marinaccio graduates with a clear role on the Yankees in his sights

Ron Marinaccio graduates with a clear role on the Yankees in his sights

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Ron Marinaccio flew under the radar for most of his time in the Yankee system, but has emerged as a player who can make an impact at the major league level. In recent weeks, Yankees reliever Ron Marinaccio passed the threshold for service time to exhaust his prospect status, and this will officially be his rookie year. That Marinaccio hit this requirement as a prospect of note is a story in itself, as he was not highly regarded when the Yankees first selected him in the MLB draft. He was not on any prospect rankings as recently as the lost 2020...

Rivalry Roundup: The AL East gains while the Twins fall

Photo by Patrick McDermott/ The Blue Jays, Red Sox, and Rays all moved up a game on Friday. The Yankees’ 15-game home winning streak was snapped on Friday, delivering just the 19th loss of the season overall. The gap between the Yankees and the rest of the AL East is a canyon at the moment, but this was a chance for the rest of the competition to claw back a game if they could. Let’s see how they did: Toronto Blue Jays (40-30) vs. Milwaukee Brewers (40-33) The Blue Jays got out in front early in this one, dropping five runs in the second inning against Adrian...

Today on Pinstripe Alley - 6/25/22

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The series with Houston continues on Saturday. All good things must come to an end. The Yankees, in possession of a 15-game home winning streak, finally fell last night, 3-1 to the Astros. That said, it was another tight affair, a is customary when these two clubs meet. Not only that, 13 of the Yankees’ 19 losses this year have been by one or two runs. It’s a hallmark of a truly great team to often dominate when you win, and to rarely be dominated when you lose. On the site today, Dan discusses Ron Marinaccio’s journey through the...

He appears to have gotten settled, as Volpe has been on fire as of late, with his June OPS approaching .900. Volpe expressed that he never lost his confidence, and instead of making big changes, he focused on “sticking through the process and all of the...

Yankees 1, Astros 3: Verlander regrettably still Verlander

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports One Tommy John surgery later, the future Hall of Famer was back in New York, dominating the Yankees. The date was October 5, 2006. The Yankees were supposed to take a 2-0 lead against the Tigers in the Division Series with Mike Mussina facing some kid at the old Yankee Stadium. Even though he would win Rookie of the Year, it felt like a good bet that the “Murderers’ Row and Robbie Canó” lineup would take care of business. But that was the day I first learned just how much of a pain in the ass Justin Verlander could be. He was a...

Yankees fall, 3-1, to ageless wonder Justin Verlander and Astros

Kyle Tucker is often the overlooked man in this monstrous lineup, but after making a spring-loaded jumping catch at the wall on Thursday and pumping a critical home run on Friday, he is making sure Yankee fans will remember his name.
