    Ivan Nova was superb tonight, look out the Yankees are on a roll & there's no stopping them.

    Nice to get those performances out of the 3,4, and 5 guys with CC getting the ball tonight. What's the line? 25.1 innings with 2 ER on that run.

    Not to throw cold water or anything, but CC's pitching of late doesn't have me feeling like it's a lock for him to keep the string going. He really hasn't looked that great.

    Fewest losses in the AL (24). 2nd best run differential in the AL (+33)

    I'm more worried about the Yankees hitting Price than how CC will pitch tonight.
    I think CC will have a good effort but Price has been really tough this season.

    Also, the Rays haven't been hitting well. Hopefully that also keeps up.

    The Yankees have handled Price for three years now.

    Sabathia is due. (And even though he hasn't been dominating he still manages to pitch late into the game)

    I know that those numbers are correct, but it's sure hard to believe considering how awful the Yankees have looked before this latest run.

    Nor fielding well. Hope that keeps up too.

    Jose Lobaton had his first career multi-hit game tonight.

    I would feel much better about the Yankee chances this year if they could only find a more consistent level as far as their offense with RISP. There just is too much talent on this team for it to be hitting .166 with the bases loaded and .220ish with RISP.

    Man, I don't know how many doubles Ive seen just out of the reach of our LF's this year.

    There's a reason that WAR is pretty effective in assessing Gardner's value, he is definitely missed. (although Binder Joe probably would have sit him tonight anyways L v. L and all)

    There is something rotten with their whole approach, and it's not outlandish to look a bit in Kevin Long's direction. Ibanez seems to have the best approach, and he's been working with Long the shortest (no pun intended).

    Imo, Long has seemed to implant a sort of spastic belief that you may only get one 'good' or prime pitch to hit, per AB. And while that may or may not be true, I think that subscribing to that belief leaves too much power in the hands of the the opposing pitcher.

    The offense seems to be anticipating the pitch they should handle, rather than tactfully working the count into their favor, in order to gain the advantage multiple times per AB.

    I've always thought of Long as a great 'Swing Mechanics' evaluator, but not, necessarily, the best 'Situational Hitting Coach'.

    Re: 2012 General Yankee Comments Thread

    I don't believe that hitting with RISP is a skill independent of hitting normally, so I'm not going to blame Long for this.

    True, but they had 8 baserunners and knocked him out after 5 IP. His ER and K totals looked good, but the Yankees have fared pretty well against him all things considered and relative to other teams he faces.

    Back in 1st place, where we belong. Feels good (especially since Boston and Philly are in last )

    Tampa Bay will probably win tonight, but the Yankees will still be tied in the loss column. The whole division is so tight that it feels like basically all five teams have gotten a mulligan on the first two months of the season. The Yankees need to play consistently to their ability to take the division, but I do think they're actually the favorites despite some of the terrible stretches they've had.

    It's hilariously early to be looking at this, but Baseball Prospectus seems to agree ...

    Once we get DRob and Gardner back we should start pulling ahead. If we got Joba back in a timely fashion..oh lawdy lawd.

    The bullpen could have another very good arm that should be ready before Joba: David Aardsma looks like he may be ready in July.
