After an impressive 2018 campaign, New York Mets RHP Jacob deGrom has won the National League Cy Young Award, receiving 29 of the possible 30 first place votes.
With the final out recorded at first base in the bottom of the ninth inning on Tuesday night, the 2018 Yankee season has come to an end. Yankee fans look at success differently than other fan bases. To Yankee fans if you don't at least get to the World Series then the season has been a failure. I will dispute that sentiment as we look forward to 2019.
With the regular season entering it's final week and the Yankees heading off to Tampa and Boston, it's time to look at what should happen in the wildcard game.
Mike Piazza walked up to bat against Steve Karsay in the bottom of the eighth, the Mets trailing the Braves 2-1. Shea Stadium was electric; Mike Piazza was the guy fans wanted at-bat down a run late in a game. Karsay pitched a ball that was meant to be away, and the second the ball hit Piazza’s bat, fans knew it was leaving the ballpark.
All eyes were on David Wright on Thursday afternoon, as members of the media and teammates of The Captain sat in on what wound up being an emotional press-conference for No. 5.
The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler, and the NFL is about to kick off their season. Now is the time for playoff contenders to start getting up that head of steam that they need heading into October.
The New York Mets’ National League Cy Young Award candidate, Jacob deGrom, recorded yet another no-decision on Monday afternoon, despite another magnificent outing. It seems almost inevitable that every time deGrom is on the mound, the Mets’ offense will be virtually absent, and deGrom will need to do everything himself.
As the month of August winds down, and we head towards the home stretch of the regular season, the Yankees stand at 82-47, the second best record in all of baseball.
Currently the Yankees are thirty-one games over .500 and in the midst of an exciting season. The Bronx Bombers were predicted to be a championship contender at the start of the season and to this point they have not disapointed. Despite this all I seem to see on twitter and other social media is how much Aaron Boone needs to shake things up or how the team is lifeless. It's not the managers fault that the Red Sox are fifty games over .500. Boone, despite not having his two best hitters for almost a month, has the Yankees right where we thought they would be.
The New York Mets' captain, David Wright, suited up for the Single-A St. Lucie Mets on Sunday afternoon, making his first minor league appearance since Aug. 2017.
