Keith Law has said a few times that he thinks the Yankees might have made some kind of breakthrough in analytics that the other teams haven't caught onto yet, that lets them identify buy low players who will be successful.

Yeah, facing Orioles pitching 18x a year.

You're not wrong.

 

Yankees as a team have a 990 OPS in 527 PA against the Orioles.

Yankees as a team have a 800 OPS in 3792 PA against everyone else.

What If Gleyber Torres Played Only the Orioles?

He doesn't. Fuck off.

Mookie Betts hit better at Camden Yards in 2016 than Torres did this season.

German placed on administrative leave by MLB.
 
 
I’m told the incident involving Domingo German and his girlfriend occurred late Monday night/Tuesday morning in a public setting - he allegedly slapped her during an argument. According to an MLB source, the incident was witnessed by an official from the Commissioner’s office.

It's almost a Captain Obvious moment to say that signing Gerrit Cole would go a long way toward solving the Yankees' shortcomings, but there are other issues with this lineup. With the exception of LeMahieu, it's a righty-leaning lineup with lots of power and very high strikeout rates. 

 

I don't think it's a coincidence that Houston didn't have a single lefty on their roster for this series.

According to MLB Network Insider

@Yankees did not extend a $17.8 million qualifying offer to infielder Didi Gregorius before Monday's 4 pm deadline.

This is a prime example of why the Elias/Astros model is the way to go.

I definitely don't think the Orioles should cry poor (and to be fair, their payroll was quite high relatively speaking the later part of Buck's tenure) but they just can't compete with this kind of money. The sport is completely out of flux. You don't see this in the NFL or NBA. Why do we see it in baseball?

The Orioles Chris Davis contract is like a 500 pound weight tied to someone as they try to run. Cole just doubled it. And he's a pitcher. Who's thrown a lot of innings. 2X a contract that crippled the O's. There's not much doubt this will be an awful contract for a decent portion of the backend for Cole. But will it phase the Yankees? They won't like it but it won't prevent them from having a competitive team.

Big, big difference.

We know how the contract will end...for NY all that matters is how much they get from him in Years 1-4.


Pete...get the general point, but Davis contract isn't crippling the Orioles.

Agree that the Orioles (like the majority of the game) need a strong system that is producing cost controlled talent with regularity.

Of course they can.

Those sports have hard salary caps. And even within those caps you DO see it.

NBA has a soft cap.  Teams fly over it all the time.

Fair enough. Without knowing the details, it sounds like it's a "harder" (with penalties) cap than the baseball "tax", though.

Football also has much more extensive revenue sharing than baseball or basketball. That's the biggest factor in terms of economic equilibrium.
