First and Last

As a reward for notching his 500th career save against the Mets last night, the Yankees gave him the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch in today's game. Needless to say he was also needed to throw the last pitch. Chamberlain sailed through five long innings and left with a 3-3 tie before the bullpen made things interesting and the game wound up in a 5-5 tie by the eighth inning.
Yankees smacked in three more runs and Mariano Rivera entered the ninth and shut down Seattle for his 501st career save.

Red Sox pen gave the Orioles a win by allowing five runs in the seventh and eighth innings for a 11-10 loss.

It's a Phoney! A Big Fat Phoney!

The list that was "leaked" yesterday containing the 103 names linked to the steroid survey was a fake. Of course smarter baseball fans knew that.
First off, the survey found 104 positive users, the list contains 103. Actually 102...Jeremy Burnitz was listed twice.
The list was listed by team order first, then by league. Days before the Mitchell Report was released, a similar list was "leaked", but in alphabetical order by player name.
Thirdly, Jason Grimsley is not on this list as he should be.
And the final bit of proof that his list was a fake, RotoInfo is not a reliable source of anything. Wikipedia is more reliable. You want roto info? Go to RotoWorld.

So for those who were crying because some of your favorite players were outed, stop. The list is not real.

A-Rod ties Reggie

Alex Rodriguez just tied Reggie Jackson with 563 career home runs tonight in the first inning against the Atlanta Braves giving the Yankees an early 2-0 lead. His home run was a solo shot to center field off pitcher Derek Lowe.

Wang vs Hughes

I mentioned this before, and now I am going to detail why Phil Hughes should be starting over Chein-Ming Wang.

Both pitchers have made starts and both have seen bullpen duties with Hughes currently in the relief role.
There has been a lot of speculation on why manager Joe Girardi is keeping Wang in the rotation as opposed to having Hughes, a starter his entire pro career. Is it because Wang dropped nearly 24 points off his ERA since being placed on the DL? Or is it because the pen is weak and Hughes is this years Joba? Hughes Rules. Doesn't sound intriguing. There are a lot of questions, and each question has a reasonable answer whether we agree with it or not. After all, Girardi is making the big bucks, not us.

So here to help is a chart and graph filled post on the comparisons of Wang and Hughes.

* * * * * * * * * *

Wang this season suffered from embarrassing losses to the Orioles (Apr 8), Tampa (Apr 13), and Cleveland (Apr 18). His ERA sky rocketed to a disgustingly 34.50 before being placed on the disabled list. After a AAA stint (13 IP, 0 ER), Wang made his return in the bullpen. His first outing gave the Yankees nothing to be excited about giving up two runs in three innings. He then went on to pitch 5 scoreless innings over two game droppng his ERA to 16.07 before becoming pre-DL Wang again.
As you can tell by the graph above, Wang's ERA dropped considerably after his DL vacation and then has a downward trend tailing off. The reason why the downward drop is not consistent is the fact that he returned to the starting rotation. After allowing only two runs in eight relief innings, he went on to give up 5, 3, 3, 3 runs in his next four starts. Neither one of the three run games qualified for a quality start as he was taken out by the fifth inning.

June 4: Gave up five runs against Texas in 4 2/3 innings for the no-decision.

June 10: Gave up three runs against Boston in 2 2/3 innings for the loss. He left with a runner on base.

June 17: Gave up three runs against Washington in five innings for the loss. This loss was mostly in fault by the offense since they could only squeeze out four measly hits.

June 23: Gave up three runs against Atlanta in five innings. Yankees offense again was slacking as they were shut out in another four-hit slugfest.

To talk about extremes, opponents are batting a perfect 1.000 against Wang in a 3-0 count. In comparison, they are .200 in a 3-1 count, which is Wang's most favored count.

* * * * * * * * * *

I used two different lines in this graph for the simple fact that Hughes was moved from a starter to reliever. Clearly in his second start against the Orioles, Hughes was at his worst. He gave up eight runs and was out before the second inning came to a close. Since that start Hughes has been consistently lowering his ERA. That was also his last start as Wang made his return from Tampa to the rotation.
Hughes was then bumped to the pen where he continued to improve his stats.

NOTE: If it wasn't for his Oriole bashing, Hughes would have an ERA of 3.09. Something to take note on especially for you fantasy team owners.

* * * * * * * * * *

If we were to compare the two using their season stats it shows that Hughes tops Wang in some of the more important offensive stats. The one that stands out the most is Hughes BAbip is nearly half of Wangs.
The team win-loss percentage is the winning percentage of the Yankees during each pitchers outing, whether they get the decision or not. Wang's .143 percentage is equivalent to the Yankees winning 1.5 out of ten games. As for Hughes, the Yankees win close to six games out of ten. Again, it is also noted that in past games that Wang has started, the Yankees run support has been relatively weak.
Even though both pitchers have extra-base hit percentages (XBH%) above the league average, it is shown that Wang gives up 3% more XBH that Hughes. This stat could be easily thrown out since both pitchers have had that one bad bad game.

* * * * * * * * * *

In this next segment, you will see that both pitcher have excelled in their relief roles. These next charts makes it tough to clearly decide who should be in the bullpen.

It is quite evident that Wang has fared quite well in the pen as his batting average against and BAbip are a significantly lower and his strikeout to walk ratio has nearly tripled. Readers must keep in mind that Wang's stats have been tapering off in his favor and that I have only compiled season stats up to today.

* * * * * * * * * *

This is where the argument for Hughes to be a starter is questionable. Granted he has the stuff and ability to start games, but his reliever duties are pretty damn enticing. His strikeout to walk ratio explodes and is complemented by a WHIP under 1.000. Batters are hopeless against him as charted by his BAA and BAbip. Clearly he is the best candidate for the bullpen...or is he?

The charts below are side-by-side comparisons of both pitchers in a starter and reliever role.


Stat Wang Hughes
K/BB 1.38 2.07
BAA .416 .276
WHIP 2.571 1.500
BAbip .462 .307
ERA 14.27 5.45


Stat Wang Hughes
K/BB 3.50 7.00
BAA .300 .135
WHIP 1.375 0.656
BAbip .364 .182
ERA 2.25 1.69

* * * * * * * * * *

If I were to run the team, I would swap Hughes and Wang. Granted they are performing effectively in their current positions. The bullpen would still benefit with Wang according to his stats. Hughes would also benefit and could very well serve as the 7-8 inning guy before handing it off to Mariano Rivera. Wang is very capable of doing the same exact thing. Both has shown that they can prove worthy of pen duties and keep the Yankees in the game with minimal to no damage.
As for the starting role, it's a different story. Before Wang was on the DL, he was absolute garbage with an ERA higher that most airline altitude heights. Hughes had a bad game against Baltimore throwing his pitching stats out of order and has since done nothing but improve himself.
The rotation could use consistency in Hughes as the 5th man and Wang in the pen as the #1 guy to go to before Rivera closes it out. Either way, it will not hurt the bullpen and it will more likely improve the starting five
These are my opinions and I have used stats to back up my claims, but like I said in the beginning, Girardi is making the big bucks to make decisions.

.500, Here we Come!

After losing two of three to the worst team in baseball, two of three to the Marlins, and the entire season series to the Red Sox, I think it's safe to say the Yankees are close to play .500 ball.

Now if they were a garbage team, this would be good news. However, they are not a garbage team so this is bad news.

I guess it does help to be garbage if your pitching staff with the names of Sabathia and Burnett are one of the worst in baseball. Although I do have to give Burnett some credit. He had a very good game yesterday, but the offense was still sitting somewhere in CitiField when they scored nine runs off Santana.

Wang Decision

I still don't know why Wang is in the starting rotation. He is now 0-5 with an ERA higher than an obese person's blood pressure. Hughes on the other hand was a nice exception when he was in the rotation. So why is he demoted to bullpen duties?
So far from what I have seen this season, Hughes should be a starter and Wang should be long relief...especially since Jose Veras was DFA'd. I'd throw up some stats backing up my reasoning, but it's late and I have US Open traffic to deal with in the morning.

Nationals win their 17th game of the season, Sox over fish, Yankees three back.

Yanks Pop Off to Mets

You gotta love back and forth games.
Joba was sloppy tonight getting into too many jams and reaching the 100 pitch count a bit early, very early actually. It seemed that either the Mets were stealing signs or he just never seemed to see eye-to-eye with Posada on what to throw. He would up walking the bases loaded, walked in the tying run, then hit the next batter for the go-ahead run in the third inning.
Yankees did respond back with another Teixeira home run giving him 19 for the season. Matsui also went deep to put the Yankees in the lead again in the 8th inning only to see the Mets take the lead back in the ninth.

The ninth inning. Very interesting ninth inning.
Francisco Rodriguez came in on relief getting a quick out to Gardner. Jeter then got a base hit. Damon pinch hit for Swisher only to strike out. Jetert steals second opening up first for an intentional walk to Tex.
A-Rod is up.
Pop up.
Ball hits the fielders glove and drops in. Jeter socres, here comes Tex, the throw to the plate...is late!
The expressions on A-Rod were priceless.
At bat: concentrating.
Pop-up: frusturated, slams bat down, spits out gum, jogs to first.
Ball drops in: A-Rod does a double take, starts to go for second, heads back to first.
Tex scores: A-Rod puts hands on head in disbelief.
No pie. Sorry.
Although the final ruling was an E5 (error on the second baseman), I liked my title and stuck with it.

Boston won, Toronto lost. Yankees still two game back.

And what's with Rivera?
3.38 ERA so far this season, his highest since his rookie season in 1995.

With the Number One Pick...

...of the 2009 draft, the New York Yankees select...from Texas High School in Texarkana, Texas...Slade Heathcott.

Heathcott is the first position player to be taken by the Yankees in the first round since Carl Henry back in 2005. He is a five-tool outfielder who brings plenty of promise to the future of the organization.

His accomplishments include:

* 2007 1st Team All-District
* 2007 WSSSA World Series MVP
* 2008 1st Team All-District
* Texas Rangers Area Code Team

Speaking of Carl Henry, where is he now? Batting a weak career .222 in A ball. Might as well go back to school, get a degree, and try a different profession.

Well This Sucks

The Yankees can beat the Blue Jays. They can beat the Rays. They can beat the Orioles. But dammit, they have no shot at beating the Red Sox. None, zippo, nada. Yankees might as well lost the rest of the season for a shot at the #1 pick in the draft.
Oh wait.
This isn't football.
The draft started today.

0-6 against the team they need to beat and it does not look like they will win at all against their rivals. They had a chance before Mariano Rivera blew it and now nothing can happen. Burnett lasted less than three innings before giving up five runs (Almost glad I traded him away in my keeper league).

Anyway, now both teams are tied for first place in the AL East with two more games coming up. Yankees will look to go 0-8 and concede the season series.

Nuthin but a Homer

Four home runs were hit in today's festivities as the Yankees take two of three games in the series. Swisher went for #12 which is half of his 2008 totals. Teixeira's 18th bomb moves him ahead of his Rays counterpart Carlos Pena and Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz for tops in the AL. Only Adrian Gonzalez (also a 1B) has more with 22.
Pettitte was his typical self and earning the win with former starter Phil Hughes putting in a perfect inning of relief work.
Rivera earns save number 14, only one behind Brian Fuentes of the Angels.

Boston was idle today putting the Yankees a full game ahead with a crucial three-game series starting tomorrow. June? Crucial? Yes. The Yankees can handle the other three teams in teh East, but are a dismal 0-5 against the Sox this season. Four more losses and they lose the East if they tie with Boston.

Ye Olde Flip Flop

It appears the Red Sox and the Yankees are going back to their classic fight for the AL East title. Last night Rivera became Brad Lidge and handed a win to the Rays as Boston defeated the Rangers and lost the division lead.

Today was different. Rivera said no to the Rays and buckled down the save for another come-from-behind win by the Yankees. Yankees score three in the eighth by some sloppy Rays relief pitching. Chamberlain, who was in line for the loss, can now breath a little easier and settle for the no decision.

Yankees are once again in first place by only a half game with one more game against the Rays...then we say hello to the Sox for a mid-week series.

Melky is Clutch, Burnett Sits

I did not see the game. Shame on me.

Boston won, Tampa won, Jays sinking faster than the Titanic. Still tied for first and once again the best team in the AL. Tough series next week against the Rays as Boston welcomes Texas.

Chein-Ming Wang made his second Yankees "debut" and it was the same stuff. Texas scores a few runs, Wang weeps. I don't get it. Before the injury last season Wang wa son pace for a career year. This year he is on pace for a not so career year...obviously.

A.J. Burnett has been suspended six games for throwing at Nelson Cruz. Understandable since he threw at his head and not his ribs like he was supposed to.

Hard Baseball and Posada Throws it Away (Literally)

The error free streak is ovah! Jorge Posada, in an attempt to throw out a base runner, threw wildly at Robinson Cano who missed the ball and let it trickle to the outfield scoring the first E in 18 games.
The error was meaningless as the Yankees put a seven spot in the fourth with some hard baseball. First Teixeira was smacked in the ribs and given first base. A-Rod trickled a ball to the shortstop who in turn attempted to start a 6-4-3 double play. However, Tex came in hard to the second baseman taking him out on a CLEAN play and breaking up the double play. Beautiful take out slide too if I might add.
In the Rangers top half, AJ Burnett threw one at the head of Nelson Cruz (who had homered earlier in the game). Burnett, the Rangers, and the Yankees were warned and no more rough and tough ball was played.
I love how the code plays out in baseball, but still, never throw at the head.

Sox and Jays win as well. Lead is still one game in the East...Yankees have the best record in the American League, second in the majors to Torre's Dodgers.

Yanks Set Record in Win

Stand aside Boston, Yankees are here to claim another record. And a defensive record at that.
In 2006 the Boston Red Sox set a record for playing in 17 consecutive error free games. Tonight the Yankees made it 18 in a row. That's 162 innings without an error. No bobbles, no dropped balls, nothing of the matter.
One would think that in the 150+ years of MLB history that this record would be a lot longer that 18. Keep in mind that on any given day a player will throw too hard and overthrow the first baseman, or a fielder will charge too hard and the ball will get by them.
My prediction, Yankees make it 22 in a row before a gaffe.

Joba Chamberlain was vintage Chamberlain tonight (vintage as in his bullpen days) allowing only 2 runs to the Indians while earning his third win of the season.

Yankees have a full game lead in the AL East.
