• Yankees Offense Three Week May Vacay

    Posted by on May 28th, 2010 · Comments (3)

    Check out the Yankees offensive “attack” since May 9, 2010:

    May 9, 2010 to May 16, 2010: 4.1 runs per game
    May 17, 2010 scored 11 runs
    May 18, 2010 to May 27, 2010: 3.7 runs per game

    Yankees record since May 9, 2010: 7-11

    The last three weeks, New York’s bats have been MIA sans that one game on May 17th. The bulk of that gets hung on Jeter, Gardner and Teixeria – who each has an OBA under .300 during this span. And, the fill-in players like Cervelli, Winn and Miranda have stunk as well, overall, during the last three weeks.

    Maybe Tex and Jeter are starting to come around? And, maybe Granderson coming back will mean less ABs for Winn and/or Gardner? Also, if Posada comes back, that will move Cervelli back to the bench…

    The whole thing is interesting…and makes me wonder…is the Yankees offense more about Jeter, Teixeira and Posada than it is A-Rod, Cano and Swisher? I think that we saw in 2008 what losing Posada means…and we saw in 2009 what a difference having Teixeira means…

    On the bright side, it’s only been three weeks. And, hopefully, the skid will end soon…

      See; this is what I don’t get…why is the question asked in a form that impugns the impact of three players you don’t like, and overstates the impact of three that you do like?

      Why not ask instead, “Boy, the Yankees’ offense looks a lot better when 6 guys are hitting than when only three guys are hitting, doesn’t it?”

      I mean, wasn’t the Yankee offense last post-season more about A-Rod than about Tex?
