    Re: 2018 Offense Performance Thread

    My bad 26 innings and 1 run.

    18 innings and 1 run of tampa but by all means someone post the season totals to try and prove a point.

    The offense has not been good for some time.

    Shut out by Toronto for 12 innings in a 13 inning game.

    Shut out by the mets.

    1 run off a pitcher with a 9 era last week.

    1 run in the last 26 innings.

    The Yankees came in hitting .128 with runners in scoring position in their previous 15 games ÔŅĹ last in baseball. They went 1-for-8 with RISP on Saturday.

    Glad to see there's not too many on the ledge here. The best teams from every season are always going to have a few days, or even a week, where they just plain stink at some level. Still haven't lost 3 in a row this year.

    They'd get swept by any of the greatest teams in history.

    A few days...or a week.

    It's been weeks.

    In 3 games against tampa this week..a bad team. They had 3 games where they scored a total of 2 runs.

    You probably won't think so after their next 9 game winning streak where they pummel the opposition and pitch lights out.

    They haven't scored in a full 9 innings against Font and Nuno. The whole concept of an opener is to pitch 1-3 innings, Font put up a goddamn quality start. These lulls are expected to happen, but the entire team sucking balls w/ RISP for such an extended stretch is killer.

    Didn't they lose the game Font started at home as well?

    I'm actually surprised they had that many at bats with someone on 2nd or 3rd.

    They had leadoff doubles that didn't score in the 2nd and 3rd innings - that's 6 right there!

    Yeah, problems hitting with RISP pretty much always turn out to be just problems with hitting.

    As for 7-8 in games where they donít hit HR, isnít it great that they homered in the other 59 games? Including 4 of 7 against Houston?

    The Astros are 10-12.

    The Red Sox are also 10-12. They're 3-12 since 15 April.

    Their fans likely complain the same that their teams couldn't win games when they don't hit HR.

    You are dangerously close to suggesting the team is deficient in the stat which has become the third rail of baseball analysis. I will play fool to your angel. BA is the thing that counts with RISP. OBP doesn't do it if first is vacant, a walk does not score anybody. SLG is nice, but just your measly basehit gets the job done, which is scoring the guy from second or third, so the measure of performance is rightfully BAw/RISP.

    I'll go out on a limb and say that BA is one of the best predictors of BAw/RISP. So I have to ask, if BA is not important, then why is BAw/RISP also not important and not to be mentioned?

    Yes, I guess I'm trolling, but I really am bemused by the disconnect here.

    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 want to reemphasis this.

    Just as BA's importance was long overstated, I would say that its unimportance is noe overstated. It is not useful as the sole indicator of a playerís offensive ability, but since its highly correlated with bot OBP and SA, for obvious reasons, itís not without value. Overall, Iíd say that BA with RISP is closely tied to verall BA, which in turn is closely tied to overall OBP. This BA with RISP can still be seen as a subset of overall offensive production.

    The whole OBP/SLG focus is great for individual performance, but imo throughout a team lineup in a day-to-day basis, it would be nice to have a few guy that try to get hits on the regular. Watching this team is like watching an NFL team go 5 WR and deep routes every play.

    This is really the key, IMHO. People talk about the HR being the most efficient way to score. It's not. The most efficient way to score is the guy who got on with a single when some OTHER dude hits a home run. Also, if someone is already in scoring position, scoring him with another single is pretty darn efficient, too. It's not a case of 'too many home runs', it's too many home run HITTERS. A balanced lineup is superior, especially if you can avoid the black holes.

    My other contrary view is that a $ spent on upgrading your worst hitter will always have a better return that one spent upgrading the top of the line-up.

    Outside of Friday and Sunday against Boston, the offense has been dreadful for 2 months. Wake up.

    Re: 2018 Offense Performance Thread

    Our batting average with RISP is only 14th. That’s kinda pathetic. Time to ban pre or post game meals until the average goes up. Figure out who the culprits are. We should be hitting around .300 with RISP
