I'm going to be honest, I was NOT feeling confident about this game. First off, we just kicked the shit out the Orioles a few hours before. Second, we escaped with an extra inning dub on Friday night. Third, winning doubleheaders is tough...and lastly, we had Sonny fucking Gray on the mound. And his nickname is "Pickles"....PICKLES! Jesus, Sonny. What are ya doing, guy? All I could think of when seeing the back of his jersey was Rick and Morty. But, that's just a given. So, yeah, I was not feeling good about this. But Sonny "Pickles is still a stupid name"...

The Yankees addressed their biggest need at the trade deadline when they boosted their pitching staff and brought in JA Happ and Lance Lynn (and Zach Britton!). The moves have largely worked out, aside from a few bad innings from Britton and Lynn’s relative stinker in his last start, and have forced a struggling Sonny Gray out of the rotation. Sonny made his first start since the demotion in the nightcap of Saturday’s double-header against the Baltimore Orioles. He was dazzling in his performance, finishing with a line of 6.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. He...

Great win to finish out the series! 7-2 victory. We won the series against Texas 3 games to 1, and have now won 6 of our last 7. And I know what you're going to say: "It was the White Sox and the Rangers, we're supposed to beat them" EXACTLY! We were supposed to beat them and we did - why get upset? Yes, I know that we didn't make up any ground against Boston, but that is not in our control.  Let's focus on the positives! Wow...I'm sounding way more upbeat and optimistic than I normally do about the...

Sup guys. It's me. Sorry for the super late recap today - it was a really busy day at the office. But, no worries. Jeez. That was an up and down game if I've ever seen one. A real rollercoaster huh? I experienced basically every emotion in the book during that game. It was like watching The Bachelor and The Notebook combined...or so I've heard. This would be the part where I would joke and act like I haven't see either of those, but I actually haven't.  Or have I... (I really haven't. There would be no point for me to lie to...

Sonny Gray. Sonny Fucking Gray. I’m so done with this guy. I try not to write off players too early and I always try and give them the benefit of the doubt. To be fair, I really don’t hate this guy. BUT, I think it has become apparent that he is not cut out to be a starter for the New York Yankees. This isn’t exactly a foreign concept. Many guys have come to the Bronx and failed under the pressure and scrutiny. I really think it is time to make a change. For starters, try and put him in...
