    Team Hero: June 8, 2018 at Mets

    TH: Gardner
    HM: Tanaka, Stanton, Andujar (for not messing up that 9th inning grab and throw)

    Really could go the other way too, Tanaka Hero and Gardy HM
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    I normally pick one Team Hero, but I can't today. Allowing 1 hit in 5 innings is special, but so is 2 hits including a two run home run and a walk against deGrom. I would have chosen Tanaka as sole Team Hero if we faced an average pitcher.

    Here are the Top 6 (because there was a tie) Yankees in Win Probability Added (WPA) from https://www.fangraphs.com/livewins.a...=0&season=2018

    Gardner: .534
    Tanaka: .112 as a pitcher + .024 as a batter
    Green: .085
    Betances: .083
    Holder: .073
    Torres: .073

    The sum of the Yankees other than Gardner is negative. Brandon Nimmo had the second best batting WPA at .121, but his WPA was worse than Tanaka if you add Tanaka's batting and pitching. A flaw in WPA is that reaching on an error is as good for WPA as reaching on a hit. Nimmo had the only significantly positive one on the Mets. Asdrubal Cabrera had .015 and Jay Bruce had .004. Bird had the worst WPA at -.157, and Devin Mesoraco was slightly better at -.154. Michael Conforto at -.132 and Andujar at -.108 were the other players -.1 or worse.

    Someone has to give some love to Gleyber Torres, who had two hits off of deGrom. Between them, he and Gardner had four of our five hits. (The fifth, of couse, came courtesy of Stanton.)

    Team Hero: Brett Gardner.

    Honorable Meniton: Gleyber Torres, Masahiro Tanaka.

    According to WPA, Giancarlo's HR to pad the insurance was chopped liver.
