TORONTO -- For the 64th time this season, the Yankees ask you to suspend your disbelief, throw your logic out with the garbage and believe in something when common sense tells you you're out of your mind. OK, so go with it for awhile. After all, i...Blog | August 30, 2014Wallace Matthews
TORONTO -- A good effort on Friday, a non-effort on Saturday. That is what mediocre teams are all about. Once again, the Yankees were all about being a mediocre team in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays. Once again, they wasted a fine pitch...Blog | August 30, 2014Wallace Matthews
TORONTO -- No Jacoby Ellsbury, no surprise considering how he left the ballpark last night and how he arrived this morning, hobbling on a heavily-wrapped and sprained left ankle. Joe Girardi said that pending how he comes through BP, Ellsbury might b...Blog | August 30, 2014Wallace Matthews
TORONTO -- Compared with Mark Buehrle's run of futility against the Yankees -- the Blue Jays starter has not beaten the Yankees in more than 10 years and has now lost 11 straight decisions to them -- Chris Capuano's winless streak was decidedly modes...Blog | August 30, 2014Wallace Matthews

DETROIT -- As soon as the ball left Alex Avila's bat, Shawn Kelley dropped his head and began walking to the dugout, like a beaten racehorse heading back to the barn. He was hoping for the best but expecting the worst, and before he had crossed the t...Blog | August 28, 2014Wallace Matthews
DETROIT -- The Yankees went from the glory of Wednesday night to the gory of Thursday afternoon, dropping a winnable game, and a pivotal series, with a 3-2, bottom-of-the-ninth loss to the Detroit Tigers on Thursday afternoon. The Yankees blew a...Blog | August 28, 2014Wallace Matthews
DETROIT -- The Yankees go for a big series win this afternoon against the Detroit Tigers, who they trail in the race for the second AL wild card by just two games. And after pounding David Price on Wednesday night, they take a crack at another left-h...Blog | August 28, 2014Wallace Matthews
DETROIT -- For most of the 2014 season, the team formerly known as the Bronx Bombers has been anything but. Choose any offensive yardstick you like, and chances are the 2014 New York Yankees are at or near the bottom of the American League pack. Desp...Blog | August 28, 2014Wallace Matthews
