Phil Hughes has been a mystifying and at times infuriating pitcher to watch throughout his Yankee career. As a prospect, he was viewed as very unlikely to bust because he had good command to go along with a fastball that could touch the mid-90′s and a legitimate plus curveball. In the majors, Phil’s [...]
After last season, I wrote a post comparing Joba Chamberlain and Daniel Bard, pointing out that their peripherals were incredibly similar and that Joba projected to have much better results than he did in 2010 going forward. Yet, here we are 6 weeks into 2011, and once again Joba’s peripherals far outstrip his results. [...]
One area of sabermetric analysis that is still very much in its “rough draft” stage is the effort to measure defense. Even popular statistics such as UZR have plenty of detractors, and it seems that little agreement will be reached on this issue until Field f/x provides more accurate data to build statistics [...]
At Baseball Prospectus yesterday, Colin Wyers offered an unusual take on the Pavano/Berkman umpiring controversy. I’ll attempt to summarize his piece, but if you have a BP subscription you should go on over and read the whole piece. It’s rather well-done. Wyers first notes that there are a plenitude of factors conspiring against the [...]
Yesterday, I went to work at 4 PM. By the time I got out, the Yankees had already defeated the Minnesota Twins 5-2 to take a two games to none lead in the American League Division Series. (Sidebar: anyone need SAT tutoring?)
What I wanted to see most was Andy Pettitte. He had one good [...]
Ivan Nova made his first Major League start last night and it went pretty well. He was pulled after 73 pitches, but allowed just two runs while walking only one and striking out three in 5.1 innings pitched. That’s more than we could ask for from Nova.
He averaged 94.37 and went as high [...]
What an odd start for Javier Vazquez last night, huh? He lasted just four innings, giving up two runs while walking four, surrendering five hits, but striking out six. This game is clearly a case of “Wow, that was pretty bad but it could’ve been a lot worse.”
Literally nothing was working for Vazquez last [...]
(Okay giggle at the title)
A.J. Burnett was a tough luck loser yesterday, going eight innings while allowing just seven baserunners (four hits, three walks) and striking out six. Bryan Bullington out pitched him, allowing zero runs in eight innings, giving up just two hits and a walk while striking out five.
What struck me [...]
“The lie is that it’s one or the other” – Forever Overhead, David Foster Wallace.
Phil Hughes struggled last night against the Angels, going only 5 innings and giving up 9 hits, walking 3 and striking out 2. His strikeout total matched a season-low mark that he set earlier this year in Baltimore. Hughes has [...]
A.J. Burnett’s K/9 is at an uncharacteristically low 6.60 so far in 2010. That mark would be the lowest of his career since 2000, when he started 13 games (82.2 IP) for the Marlins in his second bit of action as a Major Leaguer (6.21 K/9). As a guy who was signed because of his [...]
