A Good Haul


They all will need nicknames now, except for Stoneburner, whose name is already more badass than the other three names combined. Which would be "Murpheathcotham."

Good thing Youk threw his helmet at Porcello. He really sparked the Red Sox to that 2-0 loss today! It's ovah!

Well Now

Yanks are doing pretty good, aren't they?

By the way, Youkilis is a bitch who throws his helmet, and he deserved to get slammed.

Joba belongs...

In the rotation!

Not to win now (as some idiots will argue) but to win long-term.

If you have a potential ace, do you let him pitch 80 innings a year or 200+ innings a year? Simple as that.

Project P46

You want Pettitte back. I want Pettitte back. We all want Pettitte back. WasWatching suggests we tell him so.

Couldn't hurt, right? I plan on sending mine this afternoon. So get to it!

Hip Hip....

Been in Kentucky taking care of some things. But I am so unbelievably thrilled to be reading this.

Who Knew

It's been a while since I thought of the Yankees as a good defensive team. But how easily things can change.

While our shortstop and left fielder are still subpar, we've now got average to good fielders in Cano, Melky, Posada, Abreu, and even Johnny Damon, who particularly appears to be a solid defender when he's in left (Melky should really be the everyday CF permanently at this point). Plus, we had Phillips and Dougie each with about a third of all innings played at first base, and both of those guys can pick it. The trend should continue if we get a defensive upgrade at 3B (by that I mean, not Betemit).

So the quality of defensive personnel and its slow upward climb might help to explain the Yankees' top rating in the Probabilistic Model of Range, by Baseball Info Solutions (and presented via David Pinto here). This basically tells you that the Yanks outperformed their defensive expectations more than any other team, in turning more difficult balls-in-play into outs. There's a bit more info if you follow the link.

Interesting that three of the top four teams are all in the AL East (Yanks, BoSox, and the Jays at fourth, after the Cubbies).

You Know What Would Be Funny?

If someone did a spoof of that "Leave Britney Alone" kid, only changed it to ARod. I think that would be uproariously funny. Just imagine it. Lord knows there are buckets of material to work with.
