...The Yanks lead the AL in ERA at 3.60.



Who had that number in their league leaders' pool? I know I didn't.


They also lead the league in ERA+ (ERA adjusted for ballpark factors), and in WHIP (Walks + Hits divided by innings pitched, or fewest baserunners allowed by walk or hit per 9 innings).


Some credit has to go to pitching coach Blake, I think, especially in light of all the arm injuries and COVID pitchers on the DL, especially in the last month. Yanks have a 2.74 team ERA in the month of August, and a 3.04 team ERA in the 43 games since they lost the first game of the double header to the Mets on July 4 at the Stadium, and dropped to 41-41 on the season.


They're hitting better, fielding better and are active on the bases now, but that's probably the biggest reason for the season turnaround.

since that 1st game DH loss to the mets, we're 32-11. and yeah while the offense has picked it up and there's been improvement in the other areas, it's been the pitching leading the charge. even more amazing during this current run, we were missing up to 3/5 of our rotation for a while and not including corey kluber who was an important piece early in the season. imagine where we would be if it wasn't for that run of bullpen meltdowns.


during the late april-may run when we were 23-9, again it was on the pitching's back. starters had a 2.75 ERA during run.

Hard on your pitcher when the offense ain't scoring any runs.

    I don't pay a lot of attention to football but I thought it worthy of note that the Dallas Cowboys reached out to the Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees for help in dealing with an injury to Dak Prescott. Blake must have some credibility in the training world.

Qwick, I started a similar thread yesterday on Blake. I referenced how Yankees pitching stacks up in a couple key categories across MLB. They are surprisingly competitive with a bunch of NL teams even thought with no DH you would expect them to have better overall pitching numbers. One of the things that interests me, is that Yankee pitchers seem to be throwing a lot more good ole fashioned sinkers. I have always thought a hard sinker is a great pitch to combat today's hitters who seem so focused on launch angle and lifting the ball.
