All your mega-thread goodness is right here. (Formerly Inside the Lines)
Here's a list of all of the performance threads:
2009 Performance Threads:
Players without a thread:
We tried to give everyone a little extra leeway the past week or so to allow everyone to vent, but now that things have calmed down a little I would just like to remind everyone that the community standards apply not just regarding posts about players or your fellow users, but also when you're posting about those in Yankees management. We encourage everyone to post their opinions freely, positive or negative, about the Yankees management or anything else, but please make sure to do so in an...
The mega-threads, i.e "The Official Player X Performance Thread" have their purpose for discussions such as general commentary and analysis about the players or their performance in recent games. In addition, we don't want users to start a new thread for every little thought about a particular player or game. However, there are some topics that are important enough to have their own thread. We encourage users to start new threads about players or the team when there's something newsworthy.
Surprised a 2014 Joe Girardi thread hasn't been started yet (and likely a good sign since the tendency is to use this thread to vent or complain about bad decisions more so than to praise good decisions).
I'll kick it off. Interesting decision to stick with Phelps for as long as he did last night but it worked out.
https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal says the Yankees traded Vidal Nuno for Arizona's Brandon McCarthy. McCarthy is tied for the second most hits allowed, earned runs, and losses. The only pitcher who has allowed more hits and more earned runs is Ricky Nolasco, who the Yankees face today. McCarthy has a 5.01 ERA compared to 5.42 for Nuno. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/m/mccarbr01.shtml has McCarthy's statistics. McCarthy's fielding independent pitching (FIP) of 3.79 is 1.22 better...
Positives so far is he's walked 8 times in 11 games & defense looks good. Negatives are he's rocking a .429 OPS and didn't hit in Spring Training. Possibly will be a black hole offensively.
Solarte should get his innings once Tex comes back.
Welcome to the New York Yankees, Mr. Headley.
Did his best impression of David Robertson last night.
Does this offense lead the league in GIDP ? It seem like they hit one everytime with men on base.
Nothing major for any of the regulars here. Don't panic folks. ;)
I thought it would be a good idea to open one of these for 2014 on a very slow note. Hopefully this year's thread will be less than 1/10th of what last year's was like.
This thread is just as much about who made the opening day roster as who didn't. Let's hope Yangy becomes a fixture here.
He was promoted and Shane Greene was sent down. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/l/lerouch01.shtml has Leroux's career statistics.
Missed the game today. Caught the highlights. He hit the snot out of that one.
https://twitter.com/YankeesPR/status/476863403676684288 says he was acquired from San Francisco for cash considerations. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/h/huffda01.shtml has his career statistics.
Former A. Now a Yankay.
in play, run(s)
Battle of the big league debuts tonight with DeGrom starting for Mets. Hopefully Chase Whitley is not another Chase Wright.
Edit: Mod please add a "2014" if necessary.
ESPN is reporting:
Yankees get Chase Headley and cash for Solarte and DePaula
Will the third time be the charm? He was promoted and demoted twice before without pitching. http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=greene002sha has his minor league statistics. He's 25 and has not pitched in MLB yet.
Lohud Yankees Blog @LoHudYankees Zelous Wheeler called up; joining Yankees in Minnesota http://lohud.us/1s0rZwd
Wonder who gets sent down but lets hope this is the start of some guys getting a shot
I can't wait to see him back on the field.
Is it possible he doesn't have a thread yet?
I absolutely love what I've seen from Ellsbury so far. Long at bats, great base running, great defense. I didn't like the contract, but if he stays healthy he's going to be a huge asset.
My main man Hiroki Kuroda back for likely his last year in the majors. He was the ace of our staff last year, however he has an even greater role this year, being the Senpai for Masahiro Tanaka as he finds his way in the big leagues. Hoping for a big year from our co-ace!
