Chad Gaudin, Let’s say it’s the seventh inning and CC Sabathia load the bases with two outs on an infield single, a bloop in the center-right triangle shallow, and a shot that grazed by the height of the batting jersey. Joe Girardi takes his Ace Out of 118 pitches and gave the ball to Chad Gaudin because he is trying to force-feed him a spot on the list of the playoffs. Gaudin walks two batters right then gives a solid single to center, allowing all three of these runners inherited to score before obtaining the final withdrawal. The three points are borne out when Sabathia Gaudin with a brilliant 0.00 ERA. It is not fair or accurate representation of what happened, but those are the rules.
Overall, the pitching staff has allowed 61 of 212 Yankee inherited runners to score in 2010, or 28.8%. The major league average was 30.8%, while the Yankees were well better than the rest of the league in that department. I guess it has to do primary relievers the team with the lower right crossed excellent rates near or above a crossed by nine innings. The best team at stranding inherited runners in 2010 was the Twins (23.8% allowed to score); the worst was the Diamondbacks (41.3%, oops). The distribution of inherited runner Yankeeanlgesics with at least 25 innings in 2010 …
This is not a huge amount of baserunners on the individual level, but every little bit helps. Trivia: All three of these inherited runners allowed to score Mo in a game, the May 16th game when he walked Jim Thome with the bases loaded before allowing a grand slam to Jason Kubel (pictured above). To give you an idea of how volatile the data is really the percentage of inherited runners David Robertson scored would have been above league average of 28.1% instead of below the average of 31.3 % he had allowed nine runners to score instead of ten.
Outside Mitre and CHOP, the crew of the rescue team base has done an excellent job of stranding runners, mainly from the league average or better. None of the primary guys really had a particularly bad season in that department. But what about the starting pitchers who gave the ball to that team are?
