Check here for yesterday’s IF edition.
The outfield output from the Yankees was remarkably balanced in 2011. Each primary outfielder–Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson, and Nick Swisher–contributed something. Granderson added remarkable power (.293 IsoP) while Swisher displayed his infinite patience (15.0 BB%), and Brett Gardner [...]
I hate this question. However, it’s an inevitable one that baseball fans will continue to ask because until you know who your team’s postseason opponent is there isn’t really much else one can do aside from debate whether one team would be “preferable” to the other.
The reason I hate this question is because there’s [...]
Baseball America released their Top-20 NY-Penn League ranking this week. The Yankees on the list:
1. Mason Williams, of, Staten Island Yankees
6. Cito Culver, ss, Staten Island Yankees
8. Tyler Austin, 3b, Staten Island Yankees
14. Angelo Gumbs, 2b, Staten Island Yankees
19. Branden Pinder, rhp, Staten Island Yankees
The season is essentially over and there won’t be many changes to the stats of these hitters over the next two games (if they play; stats accurate as of before last night’s game), so I thought now would be as good a time as any to compare the Yankee infielders (I’ll do the [...]
Ah, the weirdness of having home field advantage through the first two rounds of the playoffs locked up despite still having regular season games to play while your two primary division rivals duke it out for the Wild Card.
James Shields had his way with the Yankees for seemingly the 8,000th time, coming [...]
Final series of the year for the Yanks, and while the Yanks have nothing left to play for, the Rays are battling for their playoff lives. The Yanks are fielding a decent lineup, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the starters get pulled early even if the game is close. The Red Sox better win [...]
Last week, Ken Rosenthal published a fascinating article on how the Moneyball philosophy continues to impact the game. One prominent passage discussed Brian Cashman’s efforts to implement changes to keep pace with the Red Sox:
The Yankees, a perennial post-season qualifier, also held low draft positions. When Cashman secured more power before the 2006 [...]
BP’s Mike Fast has done some truly ground breaking research on the impact pitch framing skills can have on a ballclub’s ability to suppress runs. Mo addressed this in a previous post (check out his graphics) but I wanted to come at it from a different angle, namely the pending decisions on what to [...]
There may be a few more games left, but the 2011 season for the New York Yankees is over, and it has been a stunning, unexpected success. While it is not the topic of this post, it warrants re-mentioning here: The 2011 Yankees have exceeded all expectations. The Yankees were not meant to [...]
Over the weekend, my girlfriend and I went to the movies to see the re-release of “The Lion King.” I’m beyond certain that we were the only non-parent adults in the theater. I’m sure I’ve seen the film between the first time I saw it and then, but I’d never really reflected on it.
