First full-squad workout begins

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 24, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Position players on one side of the outfield, pitchers on the other. The first full-squad workout is underway here at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

Most pitchers are getting a day off to prepare for live batting practice tomorrow, but there will be five pitchers in the bullpen: CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Javier Vazquez, Wilkin De La Rosa and Andrew Brackman. All four either started throwing a few days later than their teammates, or have been slowed down slightly because of injury concerns, that’s why their schedule is slightly different.

Batting practice is divided into eight groups:

Robinson Cano
Curtis Granderson
Derek Jeter
Francisco Cervelli

Brett Gardner
Jamie Hoffmann
Nick Swisher
Mike Rivera

Nick Johnson
Marcus Thames
Randy Winn
Jesus Montero

Greg Golson
Alex Rodriguez
Mark Teixeira
Jorge Posada

Brandon Laird
Jorge Vazquez
David Winfree
Kyle Higaschioka

Reegie Corona
Reid Gorecki
Ramiro Pena
Austin Romine

Juan Miranda
Eduardo Nunez
P.J. Piliterre

Colin Curtis
Kevin Russo
Jon Weber
Jose Gil

    Poor ol’ Greg Golson. The other three in his group are just slightly in a different league.

    Wow Greg Golson won the lottery

    Greg Golson

    serious question to you sabre guys out there…
    what do you do w/ this info? do you pay attention to it during the game? do you use it to evaluate players this time of year when not much is going on? what is the purpose?

    speaking only for myself, I am not anti-sabremetrics, I don’t mind learning something new if it adds to my enjoyment of the game. What I do mind is the tone of the arguments. We are all Yankee fans, save the insults for red sox fans

  8. rodg12 February 24th, 2010 at 10:58 am

    Yeah, Golson sticks out juuuuuust a bit in that BP group…

    heres a nice little game..

    of the 8 groups listed above – if you were to start a baseball team today which one would you take to start the team with, keeping in mind that chances are you won’t be winning muchfor the first 4 to 5 years and you’d probably want to take some youngsters so that in 5 years they’ll still be young. Or you can go with the veterans and try to fill the stands with fannies for the next 5 years .

  18. MunchABunchOfCakey February 24th, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Funny, looking at that list made me think of those “what doesn’t belong here” type of things.

    Cano, Granderson, Jeter and … Cervelli?

    Alex, Teixeira, Posada and … Golson?

    what do you do w/ this info? do you pay attention to it during the game? do you use it to evaluate players this time of year when not much is going on? what is the purpose?

    Off-season to see who is the better player to go after, during the season to compare how players are doing, focus on areas of weakness, see their strengths, make arguments like ‘who is the best X this season’, etc.

    During a game I just watch the game, though whenever Joba or Hughes fails to strike out a lot of guys I really worry about how that will negatively impact their FIP

  21. EricVA February 24th, 2010 at 11:05 am

    Kate –

    I don’t fancy myself a sabermatrician, but I do understand these stats. Can I respond to your question with a question? What do you do with batting average, RBIs, runs, ERA, etc? They are just different ways of analyzing and understanding the game. I prefer to look at ERA+ and WHIP when seeing how a pitcher is doing, not just ERA. It just gives me a fuller picture of the performance of a player.

  24. Betsy - Romine wasn't built in a day February 24th, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Chip and Country Club – good points about the Yankees and how they handle contracts. As to Posada, I don’t think the Yankees will bend on this one – no more long-term deals for him. If he’s still capable of playing and wants to, it would have to be on a 1 year deal.

  25. bru February 24th, 2010 at 11:10 am

    we use,accept,respect a lot of stats like whip,ops wich are sabermetrics

    when a stat is accepted & used by players,managers & in a box score we will welcome them as well

    obp was probably debated in the same way before it became accepted & showed up in the box score,whip,ops also

    a lot of stats are in the infant stages & only time will tell if they stand the test

    i am comfortable using whip,era,ops,obp,slg,etc but am very interested in new stats like war,fip,vorp,uzr

    we use uzr,war here & these are stats just like obp,slg,ops so the more they are accepted & more importantly used by people inside the game the more we will embrace them

    how do i use stats?

    personally, i sit at a big desk with my dozens of statsheets and 3 laptops with all the pertinent stats of the yankees. as a game goes on i chart every pitch in a special spreadsheet application then i crunch numbers as the game happens. honestly i can’t do all of this while watching on tv so i turn the radio on too just in case i miss something.

    then after the game i review all my data and enter it into my mathematical model that charts the progress of all the yankees. and since their names are too big to appear on the charts i simply rename them to player a, player b, player c, etc. i couldn’t tell you what mark teixeira’s stats are or what he even looks like.

    i also have a seperate model charting the preseason predicted numbers for each yankee. if one of the players’ performance differs too much from the projection i make angry blog posts on baseball prospectus.

    when the season is over i take 2 weeks off from work to double check all of my numbers and finalize my models. i use these numbers (and previous seasons’ numbers) to develop my projections for the next season.

    in the offseason i am busy reading books on statistics and writing code for new software used while i’m watching baseball.

    i’ve never touched a baseball and frankly i don’t much care for the game. i simply love math and numbers so that’s all i really care about.

  38. EricVA February 24th, 2010 at 11:19 am

    Kate –

    Exactly! We’re used to them, so we use them. No joking around, try to explain batting average to somebody who doesn’t know baseball. It’s really complicated. It’s hits divided by at bats. But!…walks don’t count as an at bat or a hit. If the fielder makes an error (in the eyes of the official scorer) that counts as an out. If you bunt and a runner advances, it doesn’t count. If you hit a fly ball and a runner scores it doesn’t count. If you hit a ground ball and the runner advances it DOES count as an out. If you hit the ball and another runner is out, it doesn’t count as a hit for you, even if you get on base.

  39. Erin February 24th, 2010 at 11:19 am

    RE: Clutch and a proposal for 2010 LoHud fans.

    After reading all the posts regarding the subject it appears that there are two camps and no one is conceding to the other.

    My proposal for the Yankees 2010 season is to have a contest after each game for LoHud fans to declare the Yankee player who made the best clutch play during that one game.

    Suggested Rules would be:

    1. Only serious responses will be accepted. Whoever ends up being the vote taker and counter will make that final decision.

    2. Only one entry person.

    3. Entry must include the exact play considered as the clutch play. ie, Tex making a diving play to end the 8th inning w/runners on 2 and 3rd (with Damon at bat!).

    4. At the end of the game the final count will be totaled and the player and Lo-Hud entrant/winner will be announced.

    5. It maybe that there is no real clutch play per game and the voter can state that. So an entry would include:

    a. Name of Player

    b. Exact play, etc.

    c. None.

    This would be a interesting way to keep track of the Yankee clutch player of the game. It isn’t scientic and the Lo-Huder’s provide the vote. Similiar to the “name the day’s lineup” but the vote is played & tallied at the end of the game. Winner TB announced at the end of the season. Because the debate of “clutch” has been acrimonious at times the post season should also be included in some manner.

    My prediction by the end of the season:

    1. Jeter
    2. Tex
    3. Mo
    4. Alex

    What do you think fans??

  44. Jerkface February 24th, 2010 at 11:24 am

    I nominate you, the creator of the game, as vote collector and record keeper.

    are you serious ??

  47. Wave Your Hat February 24th, 2010 at 11:25 am

    You guys spent the whole night debating clutch hitting and missed the point. The point is not, do clutch hits exist or do people who throughout their careers hit in the clutch exist? They do.

    The point is, is there a hitter who tomorrow, not yesterday, is likely to hit in clutch situations better than than he normally hits? And no one, looking at the mountains upon mountains of data that has been produced in a sport that has compililed data for more than a century, has been able to answer this question in the affirmative.

    Let me put it another way. Suppose we gave a million people the task of flipping a coin 1,000 times each. And we want to know, are there coin flippers who are exceptionally good at getting the coin to land heads up? (We’ll assume no cheating, and each person is blindfolded and doesn’t know which way the coin is facing when they flip the coin.)

    What we’d find is that there are exceptionally long streaks of “heads”. Those are like “clutch hits”.

    We’d also find that there were people for whom the coin landed “heads” way more than the 50/50 chance of the coin landing heads would predict. Those people in our study were “clutch hitters”.

    But the existence of those people do not prove that “good coin flippers” exist. To be a good coin flipper, the question is, if we repeat the coin-flipping study, will those people be the best coin flippers again? If so, then you will have taken a step toward proving the existence of good coin flippers.

    This is the step you need to take with clutch hitting. There are statistical ways of “repeating” the study of clutch hitting the way you could repeat the study of coin flippers.

    And those studies haven’t found that clutch hitting is a repeatable, predictable skill. Now maybe clutch hitting exists, but is too small to be noticed, or maybe it cleverly disguises itself so the uninitiated can’t discover it. But you’d think, if it was so obvious that every player who played the game knew it existed (the way I did back when I played my non-pro ball), it would show up.

    But it just doesn’t. There’s the rub.

    “each person is blindfolded and doesn’t know which way the coin is facing when they flip the coin”

    Glad you added this since new evidence has shown a coin is more likely to land whichever side up that it starts.

    I was away from the blog for a while…

    I have to say this windmill based, seemingly endless “debate” on “sabermetrics” vs. “traditionalists” is remarkably tedious.

    And it’s going on seemingly for days.

    This whole “debate” is getting worse. It’s not just here I guess. It’s happening all over the internet.

    Both sides are seem to be becoming more and more reactionary.

    Both sides of this debate are repeating arguments analogous to ones that ran rampant across different fields in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

    And now all those old arguments are getting repeated in baseball.

    It’s spring training! The team just won the world series.

    A couple of thoughts for this season:

    1. A strong spring by Jorge Vazquez may lead to the Yankees unloading Juan Miranda. At this point Miranda has nothing left to prove in AAA and no room to advance within the organization.

    2. I believe that ultimately Eduardo Nunez will be shifted to the outfield. Jeter’s likely going to spend at least another 5 seasons (including this one) at SS and Nunez’s bat is probably one that’s best suited for everyday play. He’s not a very good defensive SS at this point but his athletic ability should translate well into a corner spot.

    3. I believe that Gardner will slip down the depth chart behind Winn, Hoffmann and Winfree. The latter two both have much higher ceilings than Gardner does and Hoffmann may be better defensively than Brett. Gardner is a one tool player – speed – and while speed doesn’t go on slumps it is also true that you can’t steal first base. Homer Bush was a speedster too – didn’t mean he was qualified to play every day.

    In fact, I’m not certain that Brett will be on the 25 man roster to open the season.

    If Brett has a bad spring and Winn has a good one I believe the Yankees may opt to send Gardner to AAA and go with Thames and Hoffmann as OF bench options. Sending Gardner to AAA costs them nothing, but they would likely lose Hoffmann if they tried to send him down and Thames may opt for free agency rather than go to AAA

    Doreen oddly enough I responded to you in the next thread.

    “After reading all the posts regarding the subject it appears that there are two camps and no one is conceding to the other.

    My proposal for the Yankees 2010 season is to have a contest after each game for LoHud fans to declare the Yankee player who made the best clutch play during that one game.”

    JeterJobaCanoFan2010-

    absolutely brilliant idea.

    count me in.

    i do have to give a lot of credit to jerkface for his part in the discussion last night.

    without him there would be no BCP ( Best Clutch Play Award )

    in my mind it is really the Jerkface Award.

    i will always think of him as i cast my vote each night for BCP.

    maybe it should be best clutch player (BCP) award because mariano rivera is possibly the best clutch player in the game. he does more than one play.

    his post season record is off the charts.

    0.74 era vs a 2.25 regular season era

    rivera is the personified proof clutch exists.

    “Wow Greg Golson won the lottery”

    If I was Golson I wouldn’t be thinking how lucky I was.

    I’d be thinking how bad I’m about to look.

    But if Golson does some how come out looking like gold, should we consider it a “clutch” BP session? :wink:

    randy l-

    You aren’t going to trick me into arguing against Mo. :)

  67. lets go yankees February 24th, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    The problem with the sabremetric debates is with how they start.

    For example, since Brett Gardner’s defensive abilities were just brought up again I will use that one.

    1. Someone will say, I think Gardner should be the CF. He was great in CF last year. X, Y, and Z backs this up. Granderson has not been great in CF the past couple years. X, Y, and Z back this up.

    2. Gb, randy, etc. say Gardner is not a great CF. He cannot go back on balls, he let doubles go over his head, he turned singles in doubles, etc. I am a season ticket holder and I saw it with my own eyes. Do not tell me some bogus statistic says otherwise.

    3. Bogus? Why is it bogus?

    4. Debate ensues.

    The point is that a lot of the pro-stat people are not trying to force-feed people their opinions. But, when someone says the evidence you used is ridiculous you are not just going to sit there and say your right.

    Strange question…

    What does the “live” in live batting practice mean? Is this any different than just saying batting practice or does “live” have significant meaning?

  69. Jaremy February 24th, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    Leah- “Live” means that it’s Yankee pitchers throwing to Yankee hitters. As opposed to just a BP pitcher throwing balls, it’s actual members of the pitching staff.

  70. Jeremy February 24th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    Anyone know if the workouts are still open to the public – can you get into the stadium? Looking to go tomorrow

  71. Leah February 24th, 2010 at 5:09 pm

    Thanks Jaremy!!
