Yup, he's better than Swisher if he reverts back to his presteroid #s....
I saw on the Bronx Bomber fan page on facebook that Ichiro resigned with the Yankees today. I cannot find anything on the web about this. Anyone hear something?
there are a couple things you are failing to mention here besides putting up stats
1. Melky brings speed to the lineup where Swisher does not
2. In big spots who comes up with the big hit between the two?
3. Cabrera costs alot less then Swisher which makes him a much more attractive player than Swisher
you can't just put up stats because they don't mention half of things you see every game from these players!
Basically it's a measure of how what the player does influences the outcome of the games. So if Melky was that great in the clutch, he must have totally sucked the rest of the time.WPA (win probability added): WPA is the difference in win expectancy (WE) between the start of the play and the end of the play. That difference is then credited/debited to the batter and the pitcher. Over the course of the season, each players’ WPA for individual plays is added up to get his season total WPA.
Or you can go to baseball reference and look at their splits. You'll see Swisher is actually better in high leverage situations. Melky for his career, is best in low leverage situations.
Yanks should make a move for Haren
