The Season By The Numbers
Sunday, September 30, 2007
The regular season for the Yanks is finally officially over, and I don't think there's a fan or player in all the land that isn't relieved to be off that horribly frighting death-trap of a roller coaster. When all was said and done everything went swimmingly for the dear Yanks, so rather than lament yet again about all the early-season troubles, let's break down how things ended up:
  • Final record: 94-68
  • Runs scored: 968 (first in MLB)
  • RBI: 929 (first in MLB)
  • Home Runs: 201 (4th in MLB)
  • Batting Average: .290 (first in MLB)
  • Slugging percentage: .463 (first in MLB)
  • Stolen bases: 122 (7th in MLB)
  • Pitching cumulative ERA: 4.49 (17th out of 30. Still better than I thought it might be)
  • Cumulative WHIP: 1.43 (20th in MLB)
  • Strikeouts by pitchers: 1,003 (24th in league. Ouch)
The disparity between those mind-boggling offensive numbers and the mediocre-at-best pitching performance is a tad disconcerting for the team's post-season chances, to be sure, but the pitching has improved over the past few months of the season. It appears that they'll be going with 11 pitchers on the roster for the first round of playoffs, so if someone can guide Torre on how to manage a bullpen (cross your fingers), they might be able to wrangle that pitching into something workable.

And hey, if not - - - take a look at those offensive stats!!!
