I hate the Yankees

Recommended Posts

13 of 30 teams have made a World Series in the last ten years. Here’s a list of World Series appearances since 09:

Giants- 3

Dodgers- 2

Red Sox- 2

Rangers- 2

Cardinals- 2

Royals- 2

Astros- 1

Yankees- 1

Cubs- 1

Cleveland- 1

Phillies- 1

Mets- 1

Tigers- 1

 

I’d like to see a team not on this list make it. Someone like the Braves or the Twins. Not the Nationals though... never the Nationals.

Posnanski is always talking/whining about how the Yankees get guys like this and have them perform out of their minds.  You also forgot Maybin, who, as Posnanski wrote the other day, is finally performing like the Ken Griffey Jr. he was hyped as being 12 years later.

I have Maybin in my post you quoted.   Very surprising to see what he’s doing.    But at least I’ve heard of him, unlike a few of the others.

Ah yup, you sure did.  My bad.  

I agree, he's the only one that I'd heard of before this season.

I had never heard of Gio Urshela before this year. Now he's like the best player I've ever seen. So I looked him up. Many years in the minors. Usually in the .600s or .700s OPS. One year at .825. This year with the NYY he's at .940. I can't find him on any team's top 30 prospect list.

Seriously. What are they doing to these guys? They have 4 guys with over a .900 OPS this year. I had never heard of two of them. The other two are Cameron Maybin and DJ LeMahieu. The mighty Luke Voight's OPS is .885. Maybin has been in the MLB for decades it seems like. He hasn't achieved a .700 OPS in 7 years. He's at .921. 

Mike Tauchman did have an awesome OPS in the PCL once, but I cannot find him on any Rockies top 30 prospect list for MLB pipeline. He's at .960 in almost 200 ABs. 

LeMahieu had a great 2016 in Colorado, but has been under .800 every other year of his career, including in the minors absent a 33 game stint the year he was called up.

This is madness. We need to hire away their batting coach and performance enhancement drug specialists.

Like we struggle to get even ONE player that plays above their potential like that.....but the Yankees seem to be able to make every player play well above their ceiling.

 

And teams just GIVE these guys to the Yanks (Urshela, Voit, Tauchman, etc...)
