Yanks 4, Cards 3 #ClutchClippard

April 14, 2017By Patrick Moran

Watching winning baseball is a lot of fun. While I wouldn’t exactly say the world’s at my feet, at least I had a handful of respectful Friday night options.  Ultimately I decided to reward the New York Yankees for a solid week of work by grabbing a pizza, two liter of cola and staying in … Read More

Yanks 3, Rays 2 #SevyAndHicksShow

April 13, 2017By Patrick Moran

It took nine games to arrive there but the New York Yankees got over the .500 hump tonight. Aaron Hicks went deep twice to deliver all the offense, Luis Severino was superb on the bump and the highly touted tandem of Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman closed the door on the Tampa Rays as the … Read More

Yanks 8 , Rays 4 #AaronJudge&Jury

April 12, 2017By Patrick Moran

Through four innings at least, the Tampa Rays completely muzzled the sweltering New York Yankee bats. The way the Bomber offense is going these days, that’s not nearly enough. The Yanks trailed, 3-0 going into their half of the fifth inning before exploding for eight unanswered runs over the next three frames and winning, 8-4 It’s … Read More

Yanks 8, Rays 1 #PinedaDominatesOpener

April 10, 2017By Patrick Moran

Opening Day in the Bronx Monday provided fans with the finest scenario of what this team is capable of. Rocked one week earlier by the same Tampa Rays team, Michael Pineda was majestic on the hill for the Yanks.  He retired the first 20 batters he saw and the offense supported him handsomely in a … Read More

Yanks Fantasy Stock: Sluggish Start

April 10, 2017By Patrick Moran

It’s hardly realistic to appraise a player’s fantasy value after just one week and six games, but it’s enough for at least a small sample size. Here’s a look at how the New York Yankees are doing fantasy-wise early on. Rankings are from Yahoo and based on six offensive categories (runs, home runs, RBI, steals, … Read More

Yanks 7, Orioles 3 #AvoidTheSweep

April 9, 2017By Patrick Moran

♦After blowing leads the previous two games, the New York Yankees finally gave Baltimore a taste of their own medicine. A solo home run by Aaron Judge erased Baltimore’s one run lead in the eighth inning, and walks and good baserunning led to a Bombers four-spot up in the ninth to defeat Baltimore, 7-3 and … Read More

Orioles 5, Yanks 4 #LosingGameAndSanchez

April 8, 2017By Patrick Moran

It’s getting ugly rather quickly, folks. The New York Yankees are developing a knack for blowing leads.  For a second consecutive game in Baltimore the Yanks got up comfortably early, saw the gap close and ultimately blew the lead (and game) in the seventh inning.  This time it was a 4-1 margin that went up … Read More

Orioles 6, Yanks 5 #BlowingTheLead

April 8, 2017By Patrick Moran

The Yankees blew a 5-1 lead in Camden Yards Friday night in falling to the Orioles, 6-5 and have now lost three of their first four to open the season. Home runs by Matt Holiday and Gary Sanchez staked the Yanks out to a four run lead going into the bottom of the fifth, but … Read More

Rays 4, Yanks 1 #PinedaStinksUpTheTrop

April 6, 2017By Patrick Moran

One series hardly makes a season but man, the Yankees starting pitching is already cause for concern, imploding for a second time in three games as the Bombers lost in Tampa Wednesday night, 4-1 and lose two of three to open 2017. Sandwiched between C.C. Sabathia’s shutout gem Tuesday were blunders by Marshio Tanaka and Michael Pineda, who’ve … Read More

Welcome To MoranAlytics

April 5, 2017By Patrick Moran

“Moran-Alytics” is my personal blog that sounds comparable but has zero correlation to actual analytics. Enthusiasts hail it a poor man’s passion project while detractors aren’t nearly as generous. Nonetheless, here you’ll find musings on things I enjoy scribing most: Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, New York Yankees, the 1980s, Music, Movies, Television and my favorite … Read More
