    Re: 2018 Offense Performance Thread

    The overall current team rankings are great.

    But dont they just really show how hot we started?

    In say the last month how have we stacked up against other teams.

    Have we only scored more then 4 runs once in 2 weeks? Getting shut out by the Mets, getting shut out for 12 innings against Toronto, and getting 1 run off a tampa pitcher with a 9 era.

    Only Yankee fans can complain about an offense scoring the most runs per game in MLB. SMH

    the rest is just details.

    Re: 2018 Offense Performance Thread

    Don't have the numbers but I am more worried about the RISP. Seems like the hits are with nobody on base and we don't score with a leadoff double. two night ago we lost the game with Duffy getting that hit with CC and we seem to have more opportunities that game. We seen this last year and it's frustrating. Missed yesterday's game but happy to see Frazier in the lineup and hope he does well.

    After fire works in the first inning against Seattle yesterday. The offense managed 1 more run in the next 17 innings.

    They are all or nothing.

    No HR no score runs.

    It's a self explanatory offense. They will either hit home runs or lose.

    It is just so aggravating when the first guy doubles and the left handed guy following him can not get him to third base. And it seems to happen every game.

    Second time this month Yankees lost a game where weaker opposition scored just 2 runs.

    I know batting avg means almost nothing to the new age stats people but, when the batting avgs are as low as they are ie Sanchez your obp is not gonna be good. There is almost a 50 point gap between judge the number 1 opb for the yanks at .399 and gardy at .351.

    And the first time this month they did so when the opposition started their bullpen.

    Yes, it's one thing if the opposition is throwing a pitcher like Verlander at you. But really other than that circumstance we should win every game with this lineup if our pitchers only give up two runs.

    They have not hit well with RISP for a month now. It's been a bit overlooked due to them still winning series.
    They've become way too dependent on hitting HRs. Really with only two real sluggers in the lineup. Even Torres swings for the fences a lot...
    Some times you need simple baseball. Just move the runner over when you have a lead off double. It's scary that they don't this. Playoffs could be a huge issue.

    So we are just going to assume that the last few weeks is what they really are, and not the 2 months prior to that?

    3H and 1BB with 4K in 6IP.... against a pitcher with a career 1.81 WHIP and 8.26 ERA (to be fair, he's crushing it this season with 1.51 WHIP and 6.46 ERA).

    a team that depends entirely on the home run ball as this yankee team does.. is not beating houston in the playoffs..

    I disagree with the home run thing- they just hit a lot and you're more likely to win when you hit a home run than when you don't.

    But your players, for the past decade, all become dead pull hitters and stop spraying the ball around. I find it hard to believe it's a coincidence this happens over and over again. It started (as far as I remember) with Giambi and Teix. It still happens.

    I don't understand how a major league player can't hit away from the shift at least half the time when a shift is on. Ground ball, fly ball, whatever. Hell, just dumb luck stats gets you there half the time (left side or right side).

    I don't believe the no HRs = failure thing. They're not hitting HRs but they're also not getting any luck from the BABIP gods.

    More than anything it feels like the baseball equivalency of the McClintock effect.

    I'm not ignoring anything. I meant what I said.They have not collectively hit well since the Texas series. That's a month now. To their credit, they've gotten a lot of clutch hits along the way to win a lot of games that resulted in series wins. But as far as stringing together hits, they've been MIA for a minute.

    Re: 2018 Offense Performance Thread

    When they're not hitting HR, they're not hitting at all. Occasionally, we get lucky that HR saves the game in an otherwise poor offensive performance. It's no surprise we don't hit homeruns when we don't hit singles either.

    I didn't look it up, but it seems like we're walking a whole lot less, too.

    I agree with all of this. But you stated the playoffs could be a huge issue like you are assuming this is how the team will be hitting in the playoffs.

    Well to this date I have to assume. Only stretch we've seen them not rely on the HR and actually advance runners ect... was the 18-1 run.

    So that's 25 innings with 1 run scored off bad pitching.
