At The Break: Quick Looks Back And Forward

Oh whoops I had a whole week to write a retrospective on the first half and a preview of the second half but baseball is back tonight and I am bad at time management lol. It’s my lunch break so lets go read some of my musings about the team prior to Opening Day, and then I’ll predict what happens in the second half.

Home Runs and the Limits of Viability

The 2017 season so far seems to have amplified every storyline written about baseball for the past two years. Home Runs! Strikeouts! Pitchers breaking! I want to focus on the first bit because dingers own, but also because there’s several very interesting guys out there playing right now who are testing the limits of what a team will put up with in terms of “traditional” production. Let’s look at two of ’em.

The Antihero Tanaka

Hey do you guys remember the salad days of Spring Training? Back when Greg Bird was batting .451/.556/1.098? And Masahiro Tanaka had a 0 ERA? Those were good times.

Here are Tanaka’s current numbers:

6.34 ERA, 5.18 FIP, 4.08 xFIP, 4.03 SIERA, 4.78 DRA. A whopping 2.07 HR/9, good for 4th worst in the sport, behind only Bronson Arroyo, Ricky Nolasco, and Jordan Zimmermann.

Yeesh. Not very good company.

On The Rated-ness of Derek Jeter

I realize this is a super-timely post now, what with Derek Jeter‘s number retirement/monument park ceremony being…around two weeks ago now. I’m not a timely guy.

But anyway, I wanna wade right into the midst of a nice, civil, objective, and totally not at all hyperbolic subject: The over, under, or properly-ratedness of one Derek “#re2pect” Jeter.

Swinging With Brett

Brett Gardner has been at the center of more trade rumors than probably any Yankee in the 7 years he’s been with the team. All year, you’ll hear about who he could be moved for and why he needs to be moved, and why he sucks, and why he’s actually great, and on and on.

OPENING DAY IS HERE

 

The Yankees Roster Is Kinda-Sorta Set(?)

With Opening Day tomorrow, the Yankees 2017 roster has been pretty much set. It’s not very surprising, really…
(I’m gonna base this off of the depth chart from the Yankees website even though it’s not actually technically official.)

Spooky floating heads!

The Assman Cometh

I am so glad to be done with fantasy drafts. This draft kicked off in the late rounds of the Yo Soy Gary one, which was…less than ideal. Thankfully they weren’t both auction drafts. Also this is a $20 league with fellow baseball nerds from the Something Awful Forums so a manic, aimless draft seems to fit.

Bienvenidos a Yo Soy Gary

Second draft in the books. Auction this time, and this is my second year in this keeper league. I fell ass backwards into the finals in 2016 and ended up with a second place finish. But this time #IHaveGary.

Meet Danny Espinosa’s Facial Hair

First draft down. This is the big money league, and it also involves beating my younger brother and all of his friends so it’s a pretty big deal.
