If I had to describe Jorge Posada‘s 2011 season in a word, I don’t think a word would do. Instead, I’d settle for an onomatopoeia: Ugh. Just like there was little to say about Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano because their seasons were so [...]
2011 featured some book ends for Nick Swisher. He started off the year poorly, putting up a .293 wOBA/78 wRC+ in the first two months of the season. In September, he hit just .284/72, then had a poor showing in the playoffs. Between then, though, Swisher was on fire. [...]
Curtis Granderson may have slumped in September (.304 wOBA/85 wRC+), but every other month aside from that was nothing short of fantastic. Taking out the final month of the season, Granderson’s worst month in terms of wOBA/wRC+ was June when he hit “only” .363/125. If he did that for [...]
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 [...]
To say 2011 was a roller coaster type season for Derek Jeter would be a massive understatement. It started way back in 2010 when his contract expired and we endured months of relatively contentious negotiations between Jeter and the Yankee organization, that ultimately ended in a nice contract for [...]
The story of 2011 for Alex Rodriguez was different to say the least. However, it’s the story of 2012 and beyond that will be far more compelling. How much will [...]
For the third year in a row, and the fourth time in his career, Robinson Cano turned in a .370+ wOBA. His .375 mark was good for a 133 wRC+ this year. Isn’t it a little ho hum at this point? While we shouldn’t [...]
It was quite a season for Mark Teixeira. Like I said last week, it was either the best bad season ever or the worst good season ever. While his .248/.341/.494 line looks week, it still produced a .361 wOBA and a 124 wRC+. Those are fine numbers, but they [...]
When the Yankees announced they were signing Russell Martin after he was non-tendered by the Dodgers, I was thinking one thing: He’s a placeholder for Jesus Montero. Once Montero was ready–maybe around May or June–Martin would shift to the backup role, Montero would catch, Cervelli would go…somewhere. Well, it [...]
