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.
Purely my opinion, but I think the Captain is going to have a good year.
Trying so hard not to get overly excited, but man is the thought of this guy being healthy an intoxicating one.
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!
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.
I can't wait to see him back on the field.
Since he won't be playing figure this fits.
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.
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.

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...
ESPN reporting Yankees acquire Stephen Drew.
As posted elsewhere, he got promoted. He's the most recent Yankee reliever to get a win.
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.
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.
Does this offense lead the league in GIDP ? It seem like they hit one everytime with men on base.
I'm shocked he doesn't have a topic yet. Betances is pitching in the eighth inning now, so Warren is apparently unavailable.
There is going to be alot of pressure on the new Yankee pitching coach right from the start to get the most out of an "incomplete" pitching staff, as Cashman has called it.
Will he be up to the task? If so, he could be the most important acquisition the Yanks made this offseason.
He is getting called up tomorrow. Not sure who is going down yet.
He was promoted and Shane Greene was sent down. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/l/lerouch01.shtml has Leroux's career statistics.

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.
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...
