Brett Gardner had an up and down season. He started it off as the Yankees’ leadoff hitter, but lost the job after a tough first month of the year (.286 wOBA/73 wRC+). The next three months were much better, as Gardner produced splits of .337/108; .386/141; and .358/122. He [...]
Lineup construction is something that we’ll never tire of arguing over. We didn’t stop arguing about it even into the playoffs. So, I figured I’d get the ball rolling and get us thinking about 2012′s lineup and what it could look like. For the sake of this post, we’ll assume that
This season, the Yankees benefited greatly from having a pretty well stocked bench. Eric Chavez played well in limited time and Andruw Jones, though he assumed a more regular role at some point, mashed. And despite the frustration that he tended to induce this year, Francisco Cervelli [...]
These numbers are accurate as of the start of yesterday’s game because I wrote this last night (as I type, Jesus Montero is batting in the top of the 8th).

Maybe this is a post better saved for when the season actually ends, but I think a lot of these things are worth noting right now.
Regardless of how the postseason goes, when I think back to the 2011 regular season, the first thing I’ll think of is surprise. I didn’t think the Yankees [...]
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 [...]
Yesterday at FanGraphs, Bradley Woodrum posted an article about predicting performance for batters. Go to the post for the particulars and go here to download/play around with the spreadsheet. The basic tenet is that we need to look at BB%, K%, HR%, and BABIP to get a good idea of how a player [...]
About 6 weeks ago, I looked at the Yankees’ baserunning and found them wanting in a number of areas. In particular, struggles on the part of Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner were dragging the entire team’s baserunning stats down, as the club was subpar in terms of stolen bases and [...]
