Developed primarily as a starter during his time in the Yankees’ minor league system, Hector Noesi rather quietly had a very good rookie campaign out of the bullpen for the big league club in 2011.
He finished the season with a 4.47 ERA/4.09 FIP/4.02 xFIP, 7.2 K/9, 3.5 BB/9, 1.0 HR/9 and a [...]
I took a quick snapshot of Brett Gardner’s month-by-month batted ball profile back on August 31, and with the season over I wanted to revisit it to see if anything had changed.
Here’s the updated chart, with Gardner’s month-by-month numbers through the end of the year:
At the time of the August [...]
Now you’ve done it. You’ve really done it. Just when I thought Yankee fans couldn’t get any battier, they want to run Nick Swisher — one of the most productive right-fielders in the league, not to mention one of the Yankees’ top on-base threats — out of town, because of some unfortunately poor [...]
Former Yankeeist readers will recall that last September in the weeks leading up to the postseason we ran a handful of posts that functioned as something of a pre-preview of the playoffs. Rest assured that once we know who the Yankees are actually facing in the ALDS we’ll be publishing our customary disgustingly comprehensive playoff [...]
As noted in the the Tuesday night game recap, Phil Hughes‘ continued inability to authoritatively shut down hitters after reaching favorable pitchers’ counts — he seems to have particular trouble putting guys away after reaching 0-2 on hitters — was on full display after surrendering a long two-run home [...]
This isn’t meant as a knock on Brett Gardner, who, on the whole, has had a wonderful season in many respects. His speed and outfield defense are game-changing, and I absolutely love what he brings to the table.
Which is why I was a tad surprised to find that Gardner actually leads [...]
This past Sunday RAB’s Stephen Rhoads took a look at the 2011 Yankee team offense’s place in baseball’s Expansion Era. Given this year’s team’s lethal offensive attack (currently sitting at a robust 119 wRC+) as well as the fact that the team has pitched far better than anyone could have ever hoped [...]
The following charts take a look back through the last five seasons to see how the Yankee offense has fared against the five major pitch types that Fangraphs keeps data for. I’ve excluded the splitter and knuckleball, as teams see the former maybe 2% of the time in a given season and the latter [...]
For those of you wondering whether the Yankees need to acquire a bat:
If the team finishes out July at its current monthly wOBA of .308, it would represent the Yankees’ worst monthly offensive output in nearly 10 years. The last time they posted a monthly wOBA this low was in September of 2001.
As many have noted, something seemed off with Bartolo Colon‘s non-performance against the Blue Jays last night. After the game, Colon himself noted that he doesn’t have complete confidence in his leg, and if that is indeed the case it sounds like he could use some additional time to heal from the [...]
