The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

April 28, 2010

Robinson Cano has been one of the few bright spots for the Yankees this year

The Yankees have hit their first losing skid of the season, losing four of their last five games, the last being a humiliating loss to the Baltimore Orioles, 5-4.

So with that, I’d like to shed some light on some of the good things I’ve seen over the past 19 games, some of the bad, and definitely, the ugly parts of this 2010 Yankees season. Read the rest of this entry ?

2010 Fantasy Baseball Top 50

March 11, 2010

Trust your eyes more than numbers

December 9, 2009

Sabre-metricians and statisticians say they can determine the success of a player largely by using stats/mathematical formulas, and to some extent, I think you can. A high OBP or OPS can go a long ways in determining the value of a player, but should numbers and math equations be the only way we judge talent?

What a “Grand” idea – Yanks mull trading for Tigers Granderson

November 19, 2009

Curtis Granderson would excel as a Yankee. I guarantee it.
