• Bats, Command, & Pen Lead To Yanks Great Run Since Cash Went To The Big Peach

    Posted by on July 24th, 2009 · Comments (0)

    How have the Yankees played, since June 24th, when Brian Cashman decided to visit them down in Atlanta?

    Since that time, New York has gone 20-5 (which is a sweet winning percentage of .800).

    Yes, that’s getting the job done – and then some. However, during this time, the Yankees batters have averaged scoring 5.84 runs per game while Yankees pitching has allowed, on average, 4.24 runs per game. Seems close, huh?

    Here’s how the Yanks batters have done in these last 25 games:

    PA  HR	RBI  BB	 SO  GDP  SB  BA   OBP	SLG  LOB
    995 36	140 116	161   19  15 .287 .376 .476  199
    

    And, here’s how the Yanks pitchers have done over these 25 games:

    IP  H	ER  UER	BB  SO	HR ERA	BF  IR	IS  SB	CS ROE	GDP
    225 207	90   16	78 179	26 3.60	946 36	19% 21	7   8	19
    

    So, what’s the secret here?

    Look at the PA for Yankees batters and the BF for Yankees pitchers – it’s close.

    But, Yankees batters are hitting a lot more homeruns than their pitchers are allowing, 36-26, over the 25 games. And, Yankees pitchers have only allowed 3.1 walks per game since June 24th. Lastly, Yankees pitchers, during this run, have only allowed 19% of inherited runners to score. For the league, that mark is usually around 36%.

    So, thanks to hitting homeruns, not giving free passes to the other team, and a strong performance from their bullpen, the Yankees have been able to go 20-5 in their last 25 games. Now, the trick is to keep it up…
