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.
From his Facebook:
"Starting off the new year in the cage"
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?
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 hit a home run yesterday. He just got his first career outfield assist.
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...
The official thread with the correct spelling!
I predict that this will be the funniest, most entertaining thread on this site.
Since he won't be playing figure this fits.

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!
Let's make it official! That is Gegorius sorry
Well now i wonder if we get Drob? or is this our closer?
it is DI DI LICIOUS
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.
Career 78 ERA+ and 1.60 WHIP. Over the past few years, this team has taken dumpster diving to a whole new level. Genius! Stealth! Ca$hmoney, baby!
I was a little concerned when I heard about Long waxing negatively about his inability to get through to Cano regarding his lack of hustle. First of all, should he have said anything publicly about that? Something about seeing those comments in the press made me squirm a little bit. Maybe he was right, but it just struck me as lacking in class. It also makes me wonder, just how good a hitting coach this guy really is. I have all the respect in the world for professional coaches as well as...
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
He's definitely one of the best backup catchers in the league. It's good to see the catching position becomes the Yankees strength again.
Good start to the season by Ichiro. Expect him to have a bounce-back season, even in limited playing time.
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:
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.
