The HR chick at my work is on vacation this week. Before she left, she printed out a copy of the weather forecast for Riviera Maya for this week and taped it onto her office door as her way of letting everybody know she'll be out of the office. It's the first thing I see when I turn the lights on in my section of the office in the morning and I honestly don't know if I can make it through that emotional gut punch for the next 3 days. It's such a ruthless a-hole move that I can't decide if I love it or hate it, but I respect the hell out of it. Now onto the links. - Last Tuesday, William Juliano of The Captain's Blog laid out the 3 different scenarios that could play out this season depending on how healthy the Yankees stay.
- On Thursday, Jason Cohen of Pinstripe Alley looked back at the 5 longest home runs hit at the new Yankee Stadium before Carlos Correa's shot off the restaurant.
- On Friday, Katie Sharp of RAB dished out her first serving of Yankeemetrics this year. Mmmmmmm, metrics...
- On Monday, Austin Yamada of BP Bronx reviewed the recent bad history (and bad luck) of Yankee 1st round picks.
- David Schoenfield asked if the Twins' season is already over after their 0-7 start. I don't know if it is yet, but it definitely will be when they get done playing the Yankees for the first time.
From the IIATMS team:
- On Wednesday, Stacey broke down Masahiro Tanaka's Opening Day start. I feel like we see 6+ innings of good ball today with the extra rest.
- On Thursday, I looked at the pitch location from Michael Pineda's first start and the high concentration of 2-strike pitches that were located inside the strike zone. More than anything else, he needs to start correcting that problem.
Have a good day, folks. Shout out to my fellow cube monkeys out there. Stay strong.
