The Yankees are two games over .500, and hitting home runs, despite the absence of several major stars. By now the tale is a familiar one; boo-hoo the Yankees are missing several bats that represented 200 of their 245 total home runs last season. “Deal with it,” fans of other ball clubs probably yelled. Well, they ...
Phil Hughes rebounded from a couple of bad starts earlier in the season when he probably wasn't quite ready to pitch and looked great last night as he held the Diamondbacks to just two runs over seven innings. Joba Chamberlain also looked solid, pumping in 95 mph fastballs and was even able to locate them well ...
(Syndicated from Pinstripe Pundits). Heading into spring training, the Yankees’ catching situation was in disarray. The team was set to split the catching duties between two lackluster candidates—Chris Stewartand Francisco Cervelli. Stewart had the reputation of being a solid defender and excellent pitch framer, but was all sorts of bad offensively with a career 58 wRC+. Cervelli on ...
(Syndicated from Pinstripe Pundits). Just two weeks into the season, only one position player has vastly underperformed his offensive expectations: Ichiro Suzuki. We are dealing with a sample size of 38 plate appearances, something that may not be harped upon if occurring at some arbitrary midpoint of the regular season. Analyzing sample sizes comes with risks, but ...
It was a surreal and unsettling sight on the Yankee Stadium infield Saturday afternoon when the Bombers came out for the top of the 9th. Their infield depth stripped to the bone with Eduardo Nunez again victim of a hit-by-pitch and backup infielder Jayson Nix already removed for a pinch hitter, the Yankees had to ...
Heading into 2013, the Yankees most glaring weakness figured to be their offense. They led the major leagues in home runs in 2012 with 245, and coming into this season 200 of them were gone from the lineup. The major names missing? Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Nick Swisher, Russell Martin, Raul Ibanez, ...
It was a little curious this offseason when after the Yankees refused to offer anybody a multi-year contract and even turned down a reasonable one-year offer from Russell Martin only to see them sign a 39-year-old Ichiro Suzuki to a two-year deal. Sure, Ichiro finished very strong while he was with the Yankees, but in his ...
(Syndicated from Pinstripe Pundits). We may be only seven games into the season, but Vernon Wells has shown some unexpected life with his bat. In his first 26 plate appearances, he’s hitting .381/.500/.762, leading the team in the latter two categories. I understand the quandary of reading into sample size performance, but Wells appears to have made an ...
With the Yankees currently in Cleveland for a four-game series, players and fans alike were able to get an up-close look at Nick Swisher donning an Indians uniform in Monday’s 11-6 win over the Tribe. Swisher, now the starting first baseman in Cleveland, went 1-3 yesterday with two walks and a run scored. With a ...
Joba Chamberlain looked lost. That much was clear in his outing on Saturday in the Yankees’ 8-4 loss to the Tigers. Pitch after pitch failed to hit catcher Francisco Cervelli’s target, and with each hitter who reached base, his bewilderment appeared to grow. A line-drive single, a four-pitch walk, a ball that skipped to the ...
