Remember when I said I was changing up the regular Friday links routine and going for 2 or 3 mini links posts per week? Yeah, well I guess I'm a dirty, rotten liar. I think this is the 3rd or 4th week in a row that I've done links on Tuesday. Whatever. I'm like the Yankee front office. The actions never seem to match the words, gotta keep people on their toes. Here they are: - Last Thursday, Stacey analyzed Nathan Eovaldi's entire career to date over at BP Bronx to see if we can reasonably expect his results to ever improve enough to match his stuff.
- Chad Jennings discussed the Yankees' early problems with bench production and hitting left-handed pitching. Good to know some things never change.
- Chris Mitchell of FanGraphs evaluated Ronald Torreyes' strange tool makeup and MLB potential with his KATOH system.
- On Friday, Alphonso of It Is High... worried that this year is already shaping up to be the same as last year. Don't lose that confidence!
- On Saturday, Matt Provenzano of Pinstripe Alley took a look at Johnny Barbato's stuff through the PITCHf/x microscope to show how it's plenty good enough to stick in the show.
- On Sunday, Matt Imbrogno of RAB shone the spotlight on A-Rod's early struggles against the fastball. This is concerning only because we saw the exact opposite early on last year.
- On Monday, William Juliano of The Captain's Blog investigated the trend of American League bullpens getting deeper and better and the impact that may be having on offensive production in the league.
From the IIATMS team:
- On Friday, Dom re-posted his write-up on Jackie Robinson's career and how underrated it's become.
New series starts tonight. Time to get back above .500. Let's get it.
