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.
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.
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.
lDS HABBENING :D
7/155. Can't wait to see this guy pitch. I wonder what number he'll take.
Trying so hard not to get overly excited, but man is the thought of this guy being healthy an intoxicating one.
Purely my opinion, but I think the Captain is going to have a good year.
After seven career blown saves (all of them before the ninth inning when he probably would have been taken out even if he didn't blow the save), he got his first career save in his 181st career game.
3 years for $45M
Did his best impression of David Robertson last night.
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.
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.
We'll see with the procedural move Cash has to make, but as of right now i'm thrilled to see that Anna made the team. In the couple of at-bats I saw him in, the guy seemed to know when to take a pitch, and i'm sure that his utility will help us out as well. What does everyone here think? Solarte made the splash, but will Anna be here to stay?
Got the Yankees first homer, and is stealing bases. All in all, good start.
I'm surprised he didn't have a 2014 thread, so I'll kick it off. Hope we can get a typical 30/100 year from him this year. Looking forward to see his bat warm up and go into one of those hot streaks that are lethal.
Here's a nice story giving us a glimpse into his character:
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.
I am watching the gamecast on mlb.com and can't believe what I am reading. He has only thrown 32 pitches to 20 batters through 6 innings! 5 K’s, no walks and 2 hits. And this is against the regular Braves lineups without any scrubs. SuperNova is back!
I know we have threads for each individual reliever but I thought it would be helpful to have a general thread from BP discussion.
With D-Rob on the shelf Kelley is closing and that knocks over some dominoes in the pecking order.
Seems like Joe is going Warren (R) . Thorthon (L) as his primary setup guys with Phelps, Nuno, Betances getting the 6th/7th innings based on matchups with D-rob out. That seem about right to everyone? Not what you think the order should be but what Joe is likely...
Missed the game today. Caught the highlights. He hit the snot out of that one.
I'm really pleased that Betances made the team out of camp. How incredibly cool it must be to make the team you grew up watching! Congratulations to Betances.
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!
Not a lot of love for Eduardo in this article in the New York Times today:
wonder if the NY Times knows something that the rest of us don't
Very interesting article about how umpires change the strike zone in different counts and whether or not they have just called a strike.
May go under water is wet department but very interesting and possibly disturbing statistical data supporting the notion that umpire do not like calling ball 4 or strike 3.
A brilliant play by him in the 7th to keep out of the DP to take the force off and to let Nunez score. Good game last night.
