What are the Yankees feeding Urshela?  Or any of their other, violently overachieving offensive players?  These guys are redefining the concept of "career years."

Whatever it is, I can assure you it's undetectable. 😀 Why do they get to have all the fun?

I'm just hoping that the clock strikes 12, and these guys revert to their former selves, around the time the postseason starts.

..or maybe just a natural testosterone booster like Ashwagandha. It actually works, too. Pretty well. I use it and notice a difference.

I smell BS with these Yankee hitters.  They should have a stat like OPS+ for a guy relative to his career stats to that point.  100 would be exactly in line with how he has done previously, above 100 is exceeding career averages, below 100 is falling below.  Not sure how to measure it yet, but each of these damn hitters would be 150 or higher.  Reminds me of Shawn Chacon and Aaron Small in 2005.....

Severino's overall numbers this year still look good, but he hasn't been very good since the break. Needs to make an adjustment back to the league.

Severino leaving runners in scoring position in each of his two at bats.  Needs to hit a ball and extend a rally.  His at bats have been Davis-esque

.672 OPS post all star break for Severino.

I have no evidence of this, but I like to think that the NYYs' Mike Ford is a close relative of Lew Ford.

I do have evidence of the fact that Ynoa can't avoid throwing the ball over the center of the strike zone.

Kahnle blew saves in each of his last two appearances against the Orioles (May 23 and August 5.)

Looks like Boone wanted to get him into a situation where he couldn't blow another one.

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
