Despite last night's loss, it's easy for Pete Colgan to see the positives.

When the Yankees finished a home sweep of the Minnesota Twins on April 26th, their season record was 15-9. That home stand seemed to lift t...

An eighth inning to remember.

When Hanley Ramirez homered off Chad Greene last night, I thought to myself, okay, the winning streak ends tonight. I looked ahead to the n...

Ya got German, Andujar, Gleyber. Who's next?

Remember when the experts swore up and down that the Yankees would never field a team with two rookies (Andujar and Torres) on it? Well, th...

Pete would have been happy with a 4-3 trip. (He's not the only one.)

Did anyone other than Yankees brass expect this?

I still remember the reaction from fans when the Yankees acquired Didi Gregorius in that three-team deal a few years ago. It was pretty bad,...

Andujar told Didi he was feeling good. Didi said, "Show me." Looks like he did!
