Larry Mahnken's Articles

Larry shows how the White Sox and Astros are two of the most under-represented teams in the World Series, and how long we might be waiting for the Yankees to win their next title.
After winning Game 1, the Yankees missed a chance to take a commanding 2-0 ALDS lead against the Angels, just like in 2002. The similarities end there, or so says Larry.
Back in the playoffs once again, the Yankees won an important game to start of the ALDS last night. Larry Mahnken shows just how big that was for New York, and how big Game Two is going to be for both teams.
Larry uses some elementary sabermetric concepts to respond to Tony Massarotti's implication that David Ortiz is getting robbed of MVP consideration this season.
Jason Giambi's saga continues.
Jason Giambi's saga continues with the worst year of his life.
He's the hottest hitter in baseball, the AL Player of the Month for July, and the leading hitter in the American League. He's no hero, but Jason Giambi's resurgence is the most impressive thing to happen so far this season.
Didn't we do this last year? The Yankees are at .500 in mid-April, and looking bad in the process. Is it just another slow start, or an ominous sign of things to come?
Larry takes on the Yankees' All-Star lineup, the man the Red Sox fear more than any other, and much more in the first installment of a new weekly column about the under-covered Yankees.
Four questions and one statement of incredulity about the Yankees.
Larry's none too happy with the news that the Yankees might not be pursuing Carlos Beltran, after all.
The Yankees are in last place, but Larry's not too concerned because they're no worse off than they were last year.
Ben is pleased to see the Red Sox begin to snap out of their slow start, while Larry is upset that the Yankees have fallen into even more of a slump.
Neither Ben nor Larry is thrilled about the way his favorite team has looked in the first week of the season, but both realize that it's way too early to worry.
A lot's happened to the Red Sox and Yankees since Ben and Larry started chatting about their favorite teams a little over a year ago. Now, they're both ready for a new season of the rivalry to begin.
For about a full year (if not longer), everybody's been saying that Carlos Beltran would be going to New York this winter. Everybody was right, but for the wrong reason. Ben's very happy about that, and Larry's certainly not.
