Chien-Ming Wang, Nationals Agree to Deal

Former Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang has agreed to a deal with the Washington Nationals. He had previously been linked to a “team on either coast,” and with Boston right on the Atlantic Ocean, a Wang-Red Sox match seemed possible. In the end, however, the Nationals snagged the soon-to-be-30-year-old off the market. Wang had a disastrous […]

Wakefield Helps Keep Sox Unbeaten vs. Yankees in 2009

Tim Wakefield entered Wednesday’s game against the Yankees tied for the team lead in wins with a 7-3 record, but has not pitched well as of late. In his previous three outings, Wake was 2-1 with 14 ER allowed in 17.1 innings pitched. Luckily, he was lined up to face Chien-Ming Wang, who sported a […]

How to Fix the Yankees 2009 Roster

The Yankees have quite a bit of holes to fill this offseason. Simply put their hitting last year was abysmal (partially due to injuries, but also some guys aging) and their starting pitching had so many injuries that they relied much too much on Sidney Ponson. Their fielding has sunk to a really poor level […]

Randolph Fired, Wang Out Until September

Sports in New York are in a frenzy this morning, waking up to news involving both of their baseball teams. Perhaps of more interest to Red Sox fans, Yankees ace Chien-Ming Wang‘s foot injury is worse than originally thought.

Buchholz and Wang Shelled in Yanks Win

Before the Red Sox and Yankees took the field, the umpires told the¬†pitchers to serve up fat pitches all game. OK, so that really didn’t happen, but it might as well have as the Yankees beat the Sox 15-9. Sox starter Clay Buchholz was shelled, allowing seven earned runs in just 3 2/3 innings. He […]

Wang Masterful, Yanks dump Sox 4-1

Tonight the Yankees took the first of many match-ups between the two rivals in the 2008 season as Yankee ace Chien-Ming Wang pitched a two-hit shutout and the Bronx Bombers defeated the defending World Champs, 4-1. Wang allowed a fifth inning solo homer to J.D. Drew which tied the game at 1-1. Wang would retire […]

Beckett vs Wang

Well I called the first game. New York won. But Boston blowing a 7-2 lead in the 8th is more Boston losing then New York winning. And it was Boston’s two best relievers, Okajima and Papelbon who lost it. One has to start to question how reliable they are this last part of the season […]

Red Sox Click: No One Can Hit

Call it what you will. Yankee pitching stymied the Red Sox bats. Boston just couldn’t put a good swing on the ball. Both explanation serve the purpose of describing why the Boston Red Sox looked so bad during their 3 game sweep by the Yankees. The AL East lead has gone from 8 games to […]
