    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    Kirby Yates is having one of the best seasons by a former Yankee and should get NL Cy Young votes. He got his 32nd save, lowered his ERA to exactly 1, and has 8 1/9 (8.11) K/BB. San Diego has played 109 games, and he's on pace for 47.6 saves that rounds up to 48. The record for most saves by a pitcher with an ERA of 1.00 or lower is 48 by Tampa Bay's Fernando Rodney in 2012 and Oakland's Dennis Eckersley in 1990. Yates has saved 62.7 percent of San Diego's 51 wins, which is a higher percentage than when Francisco Rodriguez broke the saves record with 62 and the Angels won 100. Yates is 0-2, and he's on pace to become the first pitcher with an ERA of 1.00 or lower in at least 60 innings without a win.

    I am happy for Sonny and always felt he had good pitches but I can NOT believe Lance Lynn this year. I checked occasionally and think his WAR is around 5 and had another great win yesterday. I just never got over game 3 last year. I do feel Brian did really try last year at the trade deadline but he is like another pitcher. I scratched my head at 10M but what a bargain it turned out to be....

    Lynn's 3.71 ERA is worse than his 3.59 career ERA. This isn't the first year he's pitched well.

    thanks. yes. I get stathead and see his name a lot this year (8/2, 7 IP 4H). He is a solid 3. I wish him well but he was 4.14 with us, projected at 4.5, and that not bad if you look at our rotation (Happ, CC, even Paxton). I get upset with our SP and not getting Corbin. He has his highest WAR at 5.4 (6/20 highest AL, I don't know all the numbers they use but I use it as a reference) with 14-6. I do feel Brian did a good job trading for him as a SP but I always think of putting Lynn as a reliever in that high leverage situation in game 3 after Sevy was a terrible mistake. Even with 10K/9 he is not a stopper like Khulne or Ottavino. I was surprised the Twins did not go after him. thanks again
