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.
I'm excited for this kid to get called up and hope Joe gets him in a game ASAP. The Yankees think highly of him, so I'm hopefully he'll be used regularly and not treated like Pinder.
It looks like we don't have one for Beltran ... might as well start it.
It's only spring training and a couple of games, but I can't believe how bad he looks at the plate. I can't imagine he can stay long in the #3 spot.
At age 33, he's pitching for the first time. I'm surprised he didn't have a topic yet.
The official thread with the correct spelling!
From his Facebook:
"Starting off the new year in the cage"
Since we have enough relief pitchers now to populate a small country, it will be interesting to see how the organization manages these assets. The way Cashman has hunted down and stockpiled hard throwers, I suspect there will be a pretty active shuttle between the big club and the farm all season. A steady flow of fresh arms should keep the pen from burning out, especially since we're not sure what to expect from a fragile rotation.
What's the consensus on who should close? Miller, or...
His mustache gets an 80, but i thought his pitch framing would be better... seems very posada-esque in giving up on a lot of borderline pitches, which is annoying
J.R. Murphy has been a disaster behind the plate.
Posted this in the '14 performance thread, thought I'd start up a new one for '15 as well. If he stays healthy, I predict ace-like results this year.
Pineda looked awesome today. Command, velocity, offspeed stuff... all looked awesome.
Baseball gods... please let him stay healthy.
If Pineda, Tanaka and Eovaldi pitch like their stuff indicates they can and stay healthy this rotation has the potential to be top notch. Add in any rebound from CC/Nova...
Age in 2015: 25
Hard thrower averaging top 5 fast ball velocity in the game, but has not been able to translate velocity into dominance for lack of a lethal out pitch and command on breaking pitches. Threw 200 innings for first time in career last year, with a 3.3 FIP but ERA over 4.
He's the starting center fielder tonight.
Here is a thread for updates on injuries. Twitter feeds can be embedded here for all to enjoy.
This thread may also lighten the requests to the powers that don't be to allow tweets to be embedded in ITL.
Have at it...
I wonder if Carpenter is not 100% healthy. He has pitched a 3rd of an inning since last Wednesday yet Girardi rolled the dice with Rogers and Martin for the last 11 outs of the game tonight. Carpenter is either nursing an injury or not in the Circle of Trust.
Looks like our boy started his throwing program. He posted these on his twitter account yesterday and today. Anyone familiar with the cap he's wearing?
Home run today. Hoping for a good year for him.
I predict that this will be the funniest, most entertaining thread on this site.
Looking great tonight.
His next start might be in MLB. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/capuach01.shtml has his statistics.
I think he is warranted.
If there is already one let's bump it to the top.
I said earlier this year, if he gets 85 wins out of this team he should be "Manager of the Year".
He's been as close to flawless as one can get to start this year.
I have a feeling this young man will be playing an important role on this year's pitching staff. My hope is that he has some strong outings in first-half spot starts, and replaces Capuano in the #5 spot in the 2nd half, assuming everyone stays healthy.
Let's hope for the best and see if he becomes this season's Shane Greene. Sometimes good pitchers don't become really good until something just "clicks" for them. This guy will turn 24 in April. Perhaps it's time for him to reach his destiny?...
Seems to have picked up where he left off last season. I hope Girardi keeps finding ways to get his bat in the lineup, especially with how bad Beltran has looked.
I'm surprised our leadoff hitter didn't have a topic yet. Today he got consecutive hits on ground balls to the same place, a little to the right of second base.
A thread to discuss performance enhancing drugs and their effects on individual players and on the game of baseball.
