Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

MLB Trade Rumors: Yankees To Sign Matt Diaz

The Yankees have agreed to terms with Matt Diaz on a minor league deal with an invite to big league camp, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (on Twitter).  Feinsand tipped the signing earlier this week when he noted that the outfielder would be a potential fit for the Bombers.

Eh.  Diaz hasn’t been good since 2009, and CAIRO projects him as worse than replacement level in LF.

% PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO GDP HBP AVG OBP SLG wOBA BR BRAR
80% 347 316 41 89 22 3 11 46 7 0 28 59 7 7 .283 .359 .469 .364 51 11

20% 214 195 17 43 8 0 3 20 1 2 11 48 9 1 .219 .255 .299 .245 13 -12

BR: Linear weights batting runs
BRAR: BR above replacement level, adjusted for position
wOBA: Weighted on-base average

He does have a pretty good career split vs. LHP, and here are his wOBA platoon split projections.

% wOBA vs L wOBA vs R
80% .383 .344
65% .352 .316
Baseline .321 .288
35% .290 .260
20% .258 .232

He’s battled injuries the last few years so maybe good health and a disgraceful bandbox will help him out.  It worked for Eric Chavez.

It’s a minor league deal so it doesn’t hurt to take a flier on him I guess.  He projects as a slightly below average defender in LF and RF and can’t play CF, but the Yankees do have three or four (if they keep Chris Dickerson) OF who can play CF so that’s not really an issue.
