Jorge Posada- C+
Awful start but has picked it up as of late. Has pretty respectable numbers for a catcher.
Tino Martinez- C-/D+
Definately disagree with blankman on this. I think alot of people forget that he has 13 homeruns. That's alot of offense that he provided for us in May, when we were on a tear. He's been really, really slow over the last month or so, which is why his grade still sucks, but his early offensive production, plus his defense boost him up.
Robinson Cano- B-
Considering how young he is, he's been one of the more consistent players over the last month. His range in the field isn't great, but he has a decent glove and has proved he can hit at a major league level.
Alex Rodriguez- A-
Numbers are amazing but alot of that production came in blowout games, etc. Still hasn't come through in a really big situation.
Derek Jeter- B
Numbers on the surface are decieving. He's got 10 homers, .300 average, etc. But he's batting .200 with RISP. That is awful. Knocks him down a full letter grade in my book.
Hideki Matsui- B
Doesn't deserve an A. His numbers only really started looking good over the last few weeks, mainly when he hurt his ankle. He was ice cold for a good month, and I'm not forgetting that while writing my grade.
Bernie Williams- D
Defense has been so awful I can't even describe it but he can still hit a little bit. He's come through with some clutch base hits and can still get on-base. Plus his overall attitude just helps his grade. Alot of people would complain with the way he gets treated, but not him.
Gary Sheffield- A
The most consistent player on the team. Great numbers all-around.
Tony Womack- F
Awful defense. Awful bat.
Jason Giambi- F
The worst defense I may have ever seen. His bat is absolute crap as well.
Randy Johnson- D+
A couple of good starts against Pittsburgh, etc. don't make up for the trash he's been giving out on the mound for the entire year.
Mike Mussina- C
Been great at times, awful at others. Don't know what to make of him.
Carl Pavano- D+
He's been awful. Not worth any fraction of the money we paid for him.
Kevin Brown- F
Someone please release him.
Chien-Ming Wang- C+
Been the best pitcher on the team. Looks promising. He's unphased by the New York spotlight.
Paul Quantrill- D-
Buddy Groom- D
Mike Stanton- D-
All of the above have been garbage.
Tanyon Sturtze- C
Started off well, hit a wall, who knows? He's not Gordon but he's not as bad as the previous three either.
Tom Gordon- B+
Started off badly, but has been pretty good over the last month or so.
Mariano Rivera- A
Rebounded well off the horrid start against Boston. He's been very consistent since.
Joe Torre- C
I don't think it's his fault, but I can't give him higher than an average grade for the results thus far.
Don Mattingly- B-
It's hard to get your guys to consistently hit when your always in a hole, having to come from behind. He's done good jobs getting the most out of Sheff, A-Rod, Cano, Jeter. Can't really put alot of blame on him for not being able to get Giambi or Womack going. The guys who aren't hitting are the guys who suck. There's no helping them.
Mel Stottlemyre- F
What else can I give him? Pitching has been awful.
OVERALL NEW YORK YANKEE MIDSEASON GRADE: D-
