Recently, FanGraphs updated its UZR measurements for 2010 (for park factors, power of the batter, speed of the batter, etc.), which subsequently influenced player ratings in previous seasons. In most cases, even with the alteration to UZR’s formula, the fielding numbers for players did not change significantly to the point where one player went [...]
Here’s another installment on how the former Yanks from the 2009 championship team have been faring this year. Ian Kennedy had a tremendous outing facing the tough Phillies lineup yesterday, by far his best of the year. He went 8 innings and gave up just 4 hits, 1 BB and 2 runs [...]
With last night’s all-too-forgettable loss to the Rays, I thought it would be a good time to get this going. This is a series I plan to run throughout the 2010 season, updating the results every few weeks. There was a lot of turnover this year with some beloved Yanks, some intriguing prospects and some [...]
Steve Lombardi was one of a handful of bloggers who answered questions from the NY Times Bats Blog about the upcoming season, and the following statement caught my eye:

From John Heyman:
One reason the Yankees were reluctant to go for a two-year deal for Johnny Damon might have had little to do with Damon and been a greater reflection of what they think of Carl Crawford. The Yankees love him. Crawford is almost [...]
Ladies and gentlemen, boy and girls, friends and countrymen, I come to you this morning to bring you the greatest show on earth, the Johnny Damon Quote-o-rama!
From yesterdays press conference:
“This is where I wanted to be,” he said Monday after completing his $8 million, one-year contract. “The [...]
The Tigers and Johnny Damon have agreed to a one-year $8 million deal. By most accounts Damon has signed for more money than the Yankees ever offered him for a single season, although he was originally looking for a longer contract.
Damon comes away from this looking like the typical modern professional athlete. [...]
The headline says it all, Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that a deal is in place. Jon Heyman adds by Twitter that the deal has a no trade clause, so if the Tigers fall out of it, they’ll need his permission to deal him at the trade deadline.
