    Re: 2013 Offense Performance Thread

    In the light of recent events, perhaps the thread title should be changed to "2013 Offensive Performance Thread."

    Six runs again in the afternoon game. But then, tonight ...

    The offense managed three singles, all off starter Chris Capuano, who worked six. Two were infield hits. Robinson Cano was the only one to reach the outfield with a hit and he got thrown out trying to stretch it. That was in the fourth, and it was the Yankees’ final hit. They had just one baserunner to show for their last 18 trips to the plate — Jayson Nix getting drilled by Brandon League in the ninth.

    Lyle Overbay, who had one of the infield hits, said the lefty Capuano kept the ball down, mixed his pitches and had the Yankees off balance.

    “We couldn’t get anything going,” Overbay said.

    It is perhaps worth noting that Capuano was just off the disabled list, and was sporting an ERA of 5.45 going into the game, and a record of 1-4. But what are you going to do ... He had them off balance.

    Maybe that had something to do with the going on the DL

    Oh hey look, Yankees scoreless through 5. Shocking.

    Remember when everyone complained about Martin being a "black hole" last year in the offense?

    He had an OPS+ of 92 last year. This team has an OPS+ of 86 this season through 71 games.

    EIGHTY. SIX.

    I don't think that's quite fair, because it includes the pitchers' stats in the stupid interleague games. Take out the pitchers, and they have an OPS+ of 87.

    there has to be someone in the minors or on some scrap heap somewhere, anywhere, that can out-hit Reid Brignac. he has a .276 OPS at the moment -- a 20 wRC+. his last extended amount of ML playing time saw him post a 24 wRC+ back in 2011 over 264 PAs; he has a career 55 wRC+.

    I almost don't understand how this guy is still in professional baseball, honestly, nevermind on a 25 man roster (even a depleted one).

    I long for the days when our biggest complaint was that the offense hit too many home runs.

    Re: 2013 Offense Performance Thread

    With all of the injuries, and with the players that the Yankees elected to fill those spots, you just knew that it was going to be an offensive struggle. With that being said, it really is painful to watch this team try to hit: especially so when they fall a couple of runs behind.

    Re: 2013 Offense Performance Thread

    Last 8 games:

    51 hits in 80 innings.
    .183 batting average
    23 runs scored (2.6 runs per 9 innings ... the Marlins are last in runs, and they score 3.1 runs per 9)

    In May and June, they've scored 2 runs or less 38% of the time (17 times in 45 games).

    Since May 3rd, (22-22 record) the team is batting .224.

    No, they're not a good offense. Yes, they should absolutely be better than that, even with what they have. On any given day, even based on expected decline of players, there might be 1 or 2 players maximum in the lineup (Brignac/Romine/etc) who should bat below .224. The rest should all be above that number, many of them well above it. Overbay, Hafner, Wells, Cano, Stewart, Gardner, Ichiro, Nix ... all of them are better than .224 hitters at this stage of their careers.
    Yes, I'm a girl.

    This blurb from Sports Illustrated June 24 issue.

    0 for 28.
    Batting line for the Yankees' 4-7 hitters in the 18-inning loss to the A's, the FIRST time in MLB HISTORY that 4 starters batting consecutively went hitless in a combined 28 or more at bats.

    It was nice to see such a hard fought game, with great pitching from both sides and the Yankees coming out on top with a walk off home run..

    The Yankees faced some tough pitching that only seemed to get better as the relievers poured in, but with 2 outs in the ninth Ichiro slammed a 97mph fastball into the right center field seats, which was the Yankees fourth longball in this great win...

    Twice in this game the Yankee offense failed to score with a man on third and one out, but it's baseball a game where the pitcher has the advantage!

    Just think, with ARod being cleared to play (according to ARod's Doc, as ARod tweeted), it's only a matter of time before he's batting clean up and leading the Yankees to another Championship run. That's a mighty big mid season trade (as it were) coming soon.

    Should help our pal Robbie Cano too.

    Our side becomes so unbelievably more balanced once A Rod and Jeter come back into the side. For one, we wont have 6 lefties in a row like we do now.
