    2013 Boone Logan performance thread

    1st pitch, see ya. Way to cough up that 3-2 lead. Pure garbage.

    Now if we used Mariano correctly, that never would've happened.
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Give credit to Fielder. Logan didn't throw a hanger right down the middle. That pitch was a high fastball outside the zone. Fielder's bat speed is just too good.

    Definitely. You just have to feed Fielder sliders there, IMO. CC gives him a heavy diet of sliders off the plate and owns him. Why that isn't the formula for Boone is beyond me.

    Then again, maybe scouts have said his bat has been slow?

    Logan is more valuable. He can get hit hard by both lefties and righties.

    But the pitch was not really where is was supposed to be either. Logan missed the target by a lot.

    He isn't as bad as today's results would indicate.

    I understand why they did it, but they still made the wrong decision when it came to Rapada.
    Fistpumping like a champion.

    There is not enough of a differential in Logan's lefty/righty splits to indicate he should be used as a left-handed specialist. I'm not sure how many more times it needs to blow up in Girardi's face for him to figure this out.

    I'm not sure where the myth that Logan is decent against righties started:
    .304/.388/.478 to go along with a 1.24 K/BB ratio.

    Shouldn't the thread title have a question mark after "performance'?

    What? There is a big difference. 2. He kind of stinks vs lefties. There isn't enough PERFORMANCE in his past history to indicate any position of privilege like he has enjoyed in a bullpen. Outside of 2010 he is a middle middle reliever.

    OBP vs. righties over the last three years is .360. Versus lefties during that same span is .303. That's not an eye-popping differential. A traditional LOOGY should be holding lefties to a sub-.250 OBP. I agree with your overall point that he's not very good period.

    Again, WHAT? A 60 point split in OBP is the definition of a specialist.

    .360 vs .300???? Thats a loogy! (a bad one) . Boone Logan should only be used vs left handed batters, and only in non-dire situations.

    Hot garbage!!! Girardi's only lefty in the pen. Thanks again Cashman.

    The lefty specialist who can't get lefties out, is even worse against righties, yet continues to face both almost daily. Please get him off this team.

    I'm no fan of Logan, but I am betting that he is not 100%.

    He's either DL or DFA bound.

    Does he have options? He's either hurt or he's getting cut.

    But who would replace him? We already cut Rapada.

    I'm not sure Nuno won't be needed as a starter.
