  2. Bill James on King Felix's time

    Rob Neyer

    It's subscriber-only and I don't even know if I'm supposed to do this, but Bill James runs through the math, finds that CC Sabathia was probably closer to Felix Hernandez than maybe you thought, but does wind up with the same answer as the Cy Young v...

  3. A.L. C.Y. pits Wins against ERA

    Rob Neyer

    If Felix Hernandez wins the Cy Young Award today, those howls you'll hear from our nation's leafy suburbs will be coming mostly from a certain generation of baseball writers, many of whom fought like blazes to keep on-base percentage from entering th...

  4. Yankees follow script perfectly, typically

    Rob Neyer

    Well, this is why people have been picking the Yankees, even with their one big shortcoming ... CC Sabathia won 21 games this season. His opponent Wednesday night, Francisco Liriano, won only 14 games. Sabathia's 3.18 ERA wasn't among the league's v...

  5. 20-game winners alive and well

    Rob Neyer

    Fact: Nobody won 20 games in 2009. Fact: Two pitchers have already won 20 games in 2010, and at least two more (Ubaldo Jimenez and Adam Wainwright) are likely to. Question: Has the slide in 20-game winners been not only arrested, but reversed? ...

  6. Twins' Liriano deserving ... but will lose

    Rob Neyer

    More on a popular subject from the mailbag: Rob, will someone in the BBWAA note that Francisco Liriano is having an excellent season, with better HR/9 and K/9 ratios than King Felix and practically the same BB/9? It's strange, but he is not in the ...

  7. Sabermetrics will survive the war of WARs

    Rob Neyer

    Fresh from the mailbag, a matter of pressing urgency ... Not sure if you saw it, but updated their park factors and Sabathia is now the WAR leader. I posted something about it on my blog, but I think the bigger issue deals with your plea in...

  8. Dispensing with another argument for Sabathia

    Rob Neyer

    The Platoon Advantage would like to clear up a lingering misconception: What I do want to address is one line of argument the pro-Sabathia crowd keeps bringing up in this debate. You see it mostly in angry comments to articles like the ones I ju...

  9. Will the real CC Sabathia please stand up?

    Rob Neyer

    Yes, CC Sabathia beat the Orioles last night. No, Joel Sherman was not impressed. Manager Joe Girardi described Sabathia as "just a little off," and his overall numbers of 6-3 with a 4.01 ERA is hardly Jeff Weaver territory. But, again, those resul...

  10. Slow it down and beautify it

    Rob Neyer

    This was written before the oft-delayed Game 5: All those meetings on the mound called by catcher Jorge Posada and the New York Yankees are giving Major League Baseball pause, too. Posada and pals visited pitcher CC Sabathia eight times -- in a s...

  11. The last time they played...

    Rob Neyer

    I know the big stories of this World Series are the Yankees returning, finally, to face the defending champions; and Cliff Lee vs. CC Sabathia is a nice little sidebar. But the historian in me is most attracted to the rematch of a long-ago World Seri...

  12. Figuring Yankee rotation

    Rob Neyer

    With the world still awaiting the puffs of smoke that will signal Joe Girardi's intentions regarding his starting pitchers in the World Series, Dan Rosenheck offers his well-reasoned (as usual) advice: The critical question for Girardi is how to ma...

  13. Four days of rest is for wimps

    Rob Neyer

    A couple of nuggets from Bruce Jenkins' latest: There's a big commotion in the Yankees' camp about whether CC Sabathia should work on three days' rest. This must be a hoot for every pitcher who worked from the late 19th century to around the 1970...

  14. The trade the Yankees didn't make

    Rob Neyer

    The Yankees opened their Division Series last night with one of the game's premier left-handed pitchers on the mound. Of course, it might have been a different left-hander. Tyler Kepner: Teams make bad decisions when they are desperate, and the ...

  15. Still fighting over Cy Young in AL

    Rob Neyer

    Well, last night the Cy Young situation got clearer in the American League, but murkier in the National League. With CC Sabathia's ugly loss, he failed to win 20 games and his ERA jumped to 3.37. If he had a legitimate chance at the Cy Young --...

  16. Greinke takes Cy Young lead!

    Rob Neyer

    Shortly after Joakim Soria locked up Zack Greinke's 15th win last night, I saw this Tweet from Joe Posnanski: @robneyer Blog readers want to know ... the Cy Predictor has Zack third in the AL at the moment. Will he win the Cy Young? How could I ...
