    Gary's PAs and OPS by month:

    April 67, .980
    May. 92, .979
    June 105, .824
    July 64, .358
    Aug 71, .917
    total: 400, .826


    But facts will rarely affect the skewed perceptions of the observer, particularly when those perceptions are imbued with willfulness.

    Good info. Other than July, when he was probably injured, he has hit excellently.

    Yes, but if you pick out all the individual at-bats you don’t like, then his stats are awful.

    I am curious how much negative WAR he accumulated that month.

    Sanchez has 34 hr in 373 AB. That’s nearly 10% of them. He has the same number if walks

    There is roughly a 44% chance that he either walks strikes out or hits a homerun in a given plate appearance.

    I wonder where he ranks in the “three outcome” rankings

    Ive been looking at some of his career stats of late and the surface stats are really all over the place. Despite the bonkers numbers you just described, this year is actually just average for him as far as hr-per-flyball rate (25%). His highest was 40% in those first 230 PAs in 2016. And yet, that year, he also hit groundballs 50% (!) of the time, compared to only 31% this year.

    In looking for underlying stats that stick out, I noticed that he was being absolutely killed by sliders last year; he has evened that out this year. Also, he has been taking more pitches in the zone his year than ever before. Most of his other underlying numbers though have been mostly the same. It's also worth noting that, across his career, he has been pretty steady as far as pull/middle/oppo rates go (51%/31%/17%), with a slightly increasing tendency to pull less that is noticeable across the four years.

    That had to be a team/coaching thing. Him, Stanton and Judge all got eaten alive by sliders down and away in the dirt, predictably, all season long.

    Say what you may want about him, but 34 home runs in a somewhat injured season and still on pace to hit 40 of them is simply incredible.

    Or a these guys are enormous with enormous strike zones thing. Sliders down and away will always be tough for them to cover (really they are tough for any baseball player, but the area these guys have to cover with the same size bat is going to make it tougher barring elite contact skills).

    Hitting coaches don’t have nearly the impact I think we all want them to have for blame/credit purposes.

    I just heard that he could be out for the remainder of the season with this latest injury. If this is true, I think it was stupid for him to try stealing a base last! Did he run on his own, or did Boone give him the steal sign?

    Well, Boone didn't give him the Don't steal sign. Sort of like crossing the street when the hand is just flashing, but hasn't gone to full out Stop yet.

    I know the conditioning team is a huge problem, but when is this guy gonna be able to properly stretch out his groin? He's either out injured or playing hurt and stinking it up ever 2 months.

    On another thread, I mentioned that Boone took the blame for it, saying he gave Gary free reign to run, but someone after that mentioned that Boone likes to cover for his players in public, so we will never get to the bottom of this, unless we give them all truth serum.

    For Yankees’ Gary Sanchez, Being in the Moment Has Led to Big Ones
    The catcher credits being mindful for his improvement at the plate and behind it: He more than halved his passed ball total from last year, and his slugging percentage is back up.
    ...

    During games, Sanchez found himself stewing over his failures or his inability to help his teammates rather than concentrating on the task at hand.

    “I didn’t feel like I was with the team because I wasn’t producing defensively or hitting,” he said recently in Spanish while sitting in the dugout. “I was thinking too much. I was too distracted. I looked at anything. It was like I wasn’t there in the moment.”

    And pay more attention to recovery and longevity so he would be sharper, injury proof, have a longer career, also resulting in a hefty contract down the road.
