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 ...
There are a few big name starting pitchers on the trade market, but aside from Cole Hamels, whom the Yankees like but find cost prohibitive, the only option they seem to be considering is Matt Garza. One big name out there is Zack Greinke, but the Yankees have been wary of his personality fitting in the ...
There could be a few big name starting pitchers expected to be traded later this month - Matt Garza, Cole Hamels, and Zack Greinke, but according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Yankees aren't expected to make a move on any of them. Rosenthal says that the Yankees are wary that Greinke could pitch in ...
When discussing the trade deadline earlier in the week, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that he preferred to do nothing at all rather than deal prospects and spend money on players just for the sake of trading. Yesterday's injuries to CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte may have changed things, but Cashman still insists he'd prefer ...
The Yankees don't seem likely to trade for a starting pitcher if things continue to go the way they have for almost the past month, but if they do they prefer Matt Garza to Ryan Dempster, according to Dave Kaplan of the CSN. Garza is much younger than Dempster, 28 to 35, and is under team ...
It’s pretty much predestination that the Yankees are buyers at each and every trade deadline, due to a mix of their high payroll, scrutinizing press, and general success in the AL East. Generally, the real question is: “What are they trying to buy?” It’s pretty crystal clear this year that a starting pitcher is their ...
If the Yankees make a deal for a starter at this year's July 31st trade deadline it is likely that Matt Garza of the Cubs will be their top target, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Heyman suggested that the Yankees like Garza over other potentially available starters such as Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum ...
Getting back to work today. The Yankees "desperately seek a No. 2 starter, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, and the Cubs' Matt Garza is one of the best still left available on the trade block. Let's take a look at the latest. Heyman sees the Yankees quest for a No. 2 to be a choice ...
It's funny because I wrote nearly the same article the last time Matt Garza was traded - the Yankees were interested, but didn't like his price tag. This time they are once again interested in dealing for Garza, but they aren't currently engaged in talks because they don't like the Cubs asking price and the fact ...
The Cubs have dangled Matt Garza on the trade block all offseason, but with other starters like Gio Gonzalez and John Danks now unavailable, it makes it likely that teams will get more aggressive in their talks with the Cubs. As expected, talks are heating up and the Yankees are said to be involved in talks ...
