• In Last 24 Games, Yankees Team OPS Is .694

    Posted by on May 23rd, 2014 · Comments (5)

    Check out the numbers. The Yankees have gone 11-13 in their last 24 games. (Which, for some reason, a few Yankees fans find to be exciting?) This covers the games from April 25th through May 22nd.

    Over those 24 games, the Yankees team BA/OBA/SLG line is .248/.311/.382 (in 918 PA!). Yes, we’re talking about an on-base average close to three hundred and a slugging percentage less than three-ninety. Yikes.

    During this span, Yankees batters have almost as many strikeouts (179) as hits (205).

    On average, over these 24 games, the Yankees are sending 38.2 batters to the plate per game. Here, keep in mind, that the minimum sent to the plate in a 9-inning game would be 27 batters. So, the Yankees are averaging close to just one batter per inning over the minimum.

    Not so big and hairy, if you’re smoking the objective pipe, is it, Mr. Cashman?

      But 27-year old rookie Yangervis Solarte is hitting over .300 in the last 24 games – that’s what matters most: The New York Yankees have the first legitimate A.L. Rookie of the Year candidates of The Post-Meanwell Period of The Cashman Autonomy Era

      Sometimes I think its sickening to watch this team struggle against teams like the Astros, Cubs, White Sox and Mets.

      Then other times I think, why should it surprise me? They’re just not that good.

      When things are not going well a fan is allowed to speculate, when this guy gets back, or if we can just swing a trade for so and so, or that kid at triple A, but here we have none of that. That’s why the situation seems so bleak. Look at last night, it had nothing to do with the outcome of the game, but you watch on the screen and Ryan is at 2nd and Jeter is at short, makes no sense but there you have it. Tex has got to be at first last night, Sori has to be dhing, there has to be a sense of urgency. At this point the team could muddle along like this for the rest of the season. Giradi has got to get real here, push as hard as he can, and see if somehow he can get this team to the wild card game (I doubt it can be done). There are no answers on the DL, no answers in the minors and not enough to get anything serious back in a trade. This organization is a mess, a major rebuilding will not wait, put the best team on the field, try to get done whatever can be done, and then batten down the hatches, the next few years are going to be ugly.

      I always felt that once Cashman got done riding the coat-tails of his predecessors he would preside over the demise of the team – it was just a matter of time. Looks like that time has come.

      He’s just very lucky that the Mets suck too because if they didn’t, half the fan base would go across town. Then the organization would be sustaining major revenue losses to go with their game losses. That would be even more disastrous.
