2009: AJ Burnett was brought in during the 2009 offseason in order to help CC Sabathia shoulder the load. While Burnett did not live up to the high expectations, he did pitch well enough to get the job done and was crucial in helping out the bullpen. Known as an inconsistent and injury prone pitcher, ...
I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I thought I’d continue with our season in review series, and focus on everyone’s favorite “scrappy” outfielder, Brett Gardner. Coming in to 2009, Gardner won the starting centerfielder’s job over incumbent Melky Cabrera. However, this decision was eventually reversed by manager Joe Girardi after Gardner got ...
After his scorching hot ALDS–he hit .400/.538/.900/1.438–I thought I’d take a look at Derek Jeter’s 2009 season.

Overall, Swish has hit .249/.371/.498/.869/126+ for the Yankees with 29 home runs and ...
Robinson Cano might just be the most improved starter on the team from last year. His BA and SLG are up 50 points from last year, and he’s nearly doubled his home run total. Not too shabby? He has also eclipsed the 100-run and 200-hit milestones for the first time in his career. He only ...
Coming into this season people didn’t know what to expect from Hideki Matsui. He was 34 going on 35 and coming off a couple of knee surgeries. Also, being in the final year of a four-year/$52 million contract nearly everyone assumed that he would be out of the Bronx in 2010. Almost unexpectedly Hideki Matsui has ...
