    Only to RF. CF and left center are exceedingly fair and it takes a shot to get it out in those directions.

    So have 8 other parks. But Coors is Coors... YS isn't nearly as hitter friendly. Although it's closer this season, check the Park Factors for recent years and compare Coors to YS. http://www.espn.com/mlb/stats/parkfactor

    not even close

    Doesn't help that he literally dives into balls inside to get HBP. Was bound to happen eventually.

    More mediocrity. That trade is going to go down as one of the worst in MLB history by the Pirates. No idea what they were thinking.

    Scary good, but those guys did it against a league that struck out a far lower clip. Randy Johnson in today's game would have a shot at 450 strikeouts in a season.
  7. CC Sabathia 2018 Outlook

    Love the fact that when he started to go downhill around age 32-33 he resolved to reinvent himself and learn how to pitch with diminished stuff. We've seen so many guys basically just go home and count their money once they get that mega contract and their skills start to deteriorate a little bit... CC's too competitive and proud for that, though.

    Highest average fastball velocity of his career since his rookie season in which he pitched exclusively out of the bullpen.

    Watch the games and you'll understand. At least in regards to the staring/posturing stuff.

    That was absolutely ridiculous. No idea what's wrong with this kid, but he's got some issues (and yes, he can rake, I know).
  11. Aaron Judge 2018 Outlook

    I'm starting to think Sept 1 is a realistic hope at this point. Still hasn't picked up a bat despite the Yankees original plan for him to start dry swings a week after the injury. We're 2 weeks in now, so he's at least a week behind schedule, probably more.

    Baseball America: (His) bread and butter is a curveball that registers a spin rate of better than 3,000 on StatCast. MLB:com: “Garcia generates tremendous spin on both his fastball and curveball … some of the best spin rates in a Yankees organization that puts a premium on them.” Only 5 MLBers currently have a spin rate on their curveball that exceeds 3000 RPM.

    I don't think they trust Walker in the outfield, even though he has a couple of appearances there this season. And lets remember- Neil Walker has been dreadful this season. I know he's been a bit better lately, but by and large he's been awful.

    Cashman knew Sanchez and Judge would be out for weeks before the deadline and the only bat he added was Luke Voit. Inexcusable for a team supposedly "going for it."

    Or he could get injured in the next two months and they won't get anything for him. He does have an extensive injury history.
