Story of a Season: Jorge Posada

All other hitters

If I had to describe Jorge Posada‘s 2011 season in a word, I don’t think a word would do. Instead, I’d settle for an onomatopoeia: Ugh. Just like there was little to say about Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano because their seasons...

Story of a Season: Curtis Granderson

Other Players

Curtis Granderson may have slumped in September (.304 wOBA/85 wRC+), but every other month aside from that was nothing short of fantastic. Taking out the final month of the season, Granderson’s worst month in terms of wOBA/wRC+ was June when he hit “only” .363/125. If he did that for...

Story of a Season: Mark Teixeira

Russell Martin

It was quite a season for Mark Teixeira. Like I said last week, it was either the best bad season ever or the worst good season ever. While his .248/.341/.494 line looks week, it still produced a .361 wOBA and a 124 wRC+. Those are fine numbers, but they represent...
