Statistics don’t lie. People do. But there are a lot of statistics out there, and a lot of bloggers, so statics-based lying is at an all time high compared to other types of lying. Consider the following statistics; the Yankees simultaneously rank 24th in both defensive efficiency (DER) and ground-ball-to-fly-ball ratio (gb/fb). This means that ...
Against the Rays earlier last week, Mark Teixeira failed to convert his 672nd consecutive play attempt without an error. Elliot Johnson hit a hard grounder down the first base line that stayed just fair and slipped just beneath Teixeira’s glove. He owned up to it, telling the New York Post “I just missed it. I ...
Home runs are good. The Yankees hit a lot of home runs. That’s very good - Right? Wrong – because, according to Dan Shulman and lackey Terry Francona, they are “over reliant” on home runs. That makes them one dimensional. They need to manufacture runs, not simply hit them, you see. Check out this exchange from ...
A federal jury’s acquittal of Roger Clemens earlier this week has provided the occasion for fans and pundits alike to confront three prevailing myths about baseball. First, that continuity in player skill levels and athleticism in baseball needs to be preserved at all costs. Second, that the so-named Mitchell Report provided an accurate, objective, and ...
First the bad news; Lou Gehrig’s career Grand Slam record of 23 was tied last week and likely will be broken within my lifetime. Now the good news; it was tied by another Yankee, Alex Rodriguez. I’ll be rooting for A-Rod to break Gehrig’s record, since it must be broken and since the alternatives are ...
Ray-fan has two explanations ready to go following a series with the Yankees. If you listen to Tampa Bay local AM radio sports-blather as religiously as I do, you get to a point where you can commit the following themes to memory. After a Rays victory; “Yankees bad, payroll too high, bad for baseball, Joe ...
There are some things a man just knows. Old people (37 years and beyond) can’t play baseball, can’t hit for average, and can’t rank in the top ten in any offensive category (except maybe strike-outs). There is an inverse relationship between the amount of tattoos on a pitcher’s throwing arm and his ERA. Hitting with ...
In a bold if belated move Joe Girardi demoted Mark Teixeira to seventh in the line-up. This was back on May 21st, after the Yankees had gotten pounded by (gulp) the Royals 6-0, going 0-13 with runners in scoring position, their worst hitless streak in that situation since 1990. That, combined with the “inspirational words” ...
CC Sabathia's performance against the Orioles last Tuesday night was awful. Not Kid-Rock-ripping-off-“Sweet-Home-Alabama”-awful, but awful by Sabathia standards. He walked four and gave up four runs in six innings. On the other hand, Robinson Cano should have been charged with one of those runs on his error that put Robert Andino on second and allowed ...
To celebrate the inauguration of a brand new, $1.3 billion dollar stadium back in 2009, Brian Cashman went out and purchased one marquee pitcher (C.C. Sabathia), one tattoo aficionado (A.J. Burnett), and the best first baseman since Tino Martinez (Mark Teixeira). Both the Red Sox and Angels made substantial offers for Teixeira both of which ...
