Before. During. After?

It’s amazing how many Yankees turned a corner — for better and for worse — during last week’s road trip through Detroit and Dallas. The bulk of the Yankees regulars produced significantly different results than what they showed up to that point. There was a full month of data to examine, and then it all changed.

Obviously some of these guys began changing before the road trip began — Rodriguez and Gardner jump to mind — but the numbers still paint a pretty accurate picture of who was hitting early in the season and who’s been hitting lately. One road trip produces a small sample size, but determining who’s hot and who’s not usually involves a relatively small number of at-bats.

Here are the slash lines for the Yankees regulars before and during the road trip. The question is, who’s going to hit in these days after the road trip?
