How Do The Yankees Compare to MLB Leaders?
Thursday, April 27, 2006
We're almost a month into the 2006 season, and I thought it'd be interesting to see how the Yanks are doing compared to the league leaders:

Batting Leaders
Category MLB Leader Yankees Leader
Hits M. Tejada (Bal), 37 D. Jeter, 28
Doubles M. Young (Tex), 10 J. Damon, 8
Triples S. Finley (SF), 3 D. Jeter, 2
Home Runs A. Pujols (STL), 12 J. Giambi, 7
RBIs A. Pujols (STL), 29 J. Giambi, 20
Walks B. Bonds (SF), 24 J. Giambi, 22
Stolen Bases J. Reyes (NYM), 10 J. Damon, 5
OBP J. Giambi (NYY), .553 J. Giambi, .553
Slugging % A. Pujols (STL), .929 J. Giambi, .840
Batting Average M. Tejada (Bal), .425 D. Jeter, .384
Pitching Leaders
Category MLB Leader Yankees Leader
Wins Several Tied with 4 incl. B. Arroyo (Cin) and G. Maddux (CHC) M. Mussina and R. Johnson, 3
ERA G. Maddux (CHC), .99 M. Mussina, 2.45
Saves J. Papelbon (Bos), 9 M. Rivera, 2
Innings Pitched B. Webb (Ari), 36.2 M. Mussina, 33.0
Earned Runs Allowed C. Silva (Min), 25 C. Wang, 25
Home Runs Allowed L. Hernandez (WSH), 9 R. Johnson, 4
Walks Allowed D. Cabrera (Bal), 22 C. Wang, 10
Strikeouts O. Hernandez (Ari), 35 M. Mussina, 30

The Yanks' average may not reflect their talent, but it is reassuring to see that the Bombers are actually performing quite well. I've said it before and I'll say it again: with this lineup, there is no reason that the Yanks shouldn't cruise to the playoffs. Let's chalk our current win-loss-win-loss pattern up to early season adjustments and set our sights on October!

    Blogger is stupid. You can get rid of all that white space (or in your case, black space) by deleting hard returns in your table code. I.e. make it all one line.

    It's stupid, and I've asked blogger to fix it many times, but they're not so keen on that idea.
