    Interesting Yankees info...

    Found these two in the most recent issue of SI.


    1. Since taking Pettitte in the 1990 draft the two home grown pitchers with the most wins are Phil Hughes (56) and Joba Chamberlain (24).


    2. Derek Jeter has played 2722 career games. Only one of them his team was not mathematically alive for the postseason. Sept 26, 2008. That's nuts.

    gutsy thread

    here's another one

    Sweeny Murti ✔ @YankeesWFAN

    This year's Nationals (3.46) and Yankees (3.40) are 1-2 in K/BB ratio in modern MLB history (since 1900) according to @EliasSports.

    Here's another one:

    The Yankees are lucky to be 6 games over .500 with their -26 run differential.

    My man Pythagorus says they should be 6 game under .500.

    The Yankee FO and their fans should be very happy they are still in the race after another bunch of poor signings of positional players and injuries like years past.  Tanaka looked like a good signing if he doesn't end up another Dice K and McCarthy is one guy I wanted the Sox to sign who has really helped keep them like Solarte, Headley and Gardner who I feel should be their MVP this season.  I said this before, I am truly amazed Cashman has kept his job in NY so long unless the Steinbrenner's have always been the ones really responsible for all the huge FA busts.  Regardless where the Yanks end up I will always respect Jeter and everything he has brought to the game.

    Now why would one say that about the man who practically invented sabermetrics?

    I could see it if a Red Sox fan made some disparaging comment about a Yankee, but  Pythagorus was neither a Yankee or a Yankee fan, so why drag Bill James into this conversation?

    I'm not sure what point you are trying to make. 

    Are you aware that JBJ plays defense and that Ortiz does not, except for a handful of interleague games?

    Do you agree that if their offensive numbers were identical, a good defensive centerfielder would be worth more than a DH?

    Are you aware that WAR makes positional adjustments, because all positions are not created equal?

    The positional adjustment for a DH is -17.5 runs per 162 games.

    JBJ's value comes from his defense.  Ortiz' value comes from his offense.

    My man Pythagoras is actually spot on.


    The Yankees have done well pitching wise, but that still doesn't explain how they are 6 games over .500 when they've been outscored by 26 runs.

    Run differential is another tool in evaluating teams. But it does not tell you everything. Cumulative runs scored and given up can indicate a team's overall performance, but we need to remember that each game is a separate contest in it's own right. It has nothing to do with previous games played.

    The SOX on the other hand have lost a lot of close ones and, also, lost a few  blowouts.

    Oh you want fun facts about the team from da bronx do ya?


     


    alrighty then.......


     


    No team ever with a payroll over $200 million has been excluded from the playoffs - ever.  Except for the yankees.  More fun facts on that? They will do it 2 years in a row. You want more fun facts do ya? OK. These are the only 2 years in the entire history of the game where 33% (1 in 3) teams make the playoffs. 10 teams are invited. Yankees will be irrelevant for 2 years in a row. Isn't that interesting

    Tell your friend the opposition ran the score up in a few games and the wins that the Yankees have had by and large have been by small margins due to good pitching and defense mostly from the pen.

    Not luck. Look around the league there aren't many teams who have a set-up or closer who have been as effective as Betances and Robertson. Maybe they're lucky to have those two, both drafted by the Yankees.

    If Betances comes into the game in the 7th or 8th with the lead they usually win.

    Ask your friend why he didn't tell you about Shane Greene when he was in the farm system the Yankees don't have.

    How many teams have been in the race this far into the season with 80 percent of thier starting pitching gone on the DL by the all-star game? And then a replacement Phelps.

    The replacements mostly through dumpster diving, McCarthy and Capuano.

    Shane Greene a rookie has been pitching real well as well as Pineda since his return, Kuroda the old man the only one uneffected by injuries..

    The pen is showing wear from too many innings though.
