Yankees Leaders Through Nine Games

The New York Yankees have played a whopping nine games this season, three each against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles, and have had an up and down season to date. One night the team looks like a little league team playing against a High School team and the next they look like the bullies that are beating up on the Bad News Bears. All in all I see a lot of positives to pull from these first two weeks of the season whether they reflect in the win/loss column or not and whether they really show on this list of the Yankees leaders thus far in 2015.

Let’s take a look first at the offense that has been more like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and less like the Bronx Bombers that some of us have grown accustomed to seeing.

GP: 9 (Carlos Beltran, Alex Rodriguez, Chase Headley and Didi Gregorius)

H: 10 (Jacoby Ellsbury)

HR: 3 (Mark Teixeira)

RBI: 7 (Alex Rodriguez)

BA: .290 (Jacoby Ellsbury - regulars) .333 (Chris Young - bench)

SB: 2 (Jacoby Ellsbury)

2B: 4 (Carlos Beltran)

The pitching is supposed to be the strong suit for the team this season, especially the bullpen, and honestly it has lived up to the hype thus far. I know that two weeks is an extremely small sample size but I’d rather be great the first two weeks and have something to build on rather than left on this off day wondering what in the world is going on.

G:5 (Chris Martin & David Carpenter)

ERA: 1.69 ( Adam Warren - starters) 0.00 (Andrew Miller - bullpen)

W/L: 1-1 (Masahiro Tanaka) 1-0 (Michael Pineda)

K: 15 (CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda)

S: 2 (Andrew Miller)
