As 2010 winds to a close I’ve been thinking about what would need to change in 2011 for the Yankees to win another title. The reflexive answer is to suggest better pitching. After all, the Yankees are in the market for starters, in case [...]
On Wednesday, commenter Phil raised what I thought was a pretty interesting notion, one that I really hadn’t thought about at all since July — what if the Yankees had consummated the rumored trade for Dan Haren, and how might that have altered the outcome of the season?
Before delving into the numbers, I do have to take a moment to acknowledge how wrong I was about the [...]
It wasn’t so long ago that the Yankees christened their new stadium with the first official game of the 2009 campaign. As the 2009 Yankees meandered into October, they found themselves sitting comfortably atop the proverbial food chain.

Yesterday I examined whether or not playing well late in the season translated into October success for batters. The answer was no, probably not. I compared regular season wOBAs in the months of September and October for batters to their wOBAs in the postseason to see if trends that began at the end [...]

After reviewing the bullpens of the presumptive AL playoff field yesterday I thought it’d be interesting to take a look at the individual and cumulative numbers for the pitchers from each American League postseason team that will likely be under consideration for starts.
It’s obviously too soon to know [...]
Here we are, a month away from the start of the playoffs, and already the “the Yankees aren’t going anywhere in the postseason” articles are coming in. The latest entrant in a long line of Yankee-related schadenfreude comes from New York Magazine‘s Will Leitch, who has channeled his inner [...]
With the Yankees’ victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks last night, the team now stands 1.5 games ahead of both the Tampa Bay Rays (slumping fast) and the Boston Red Sox, in first place in baseball’s toughest division. At the same time last year the Bombers were 39-32, five games behind the Sox. For [...]
