2009 New York Yankees Season at a Glance

Here’s a look at the World Champion New York Yankees 2009 Season.  In a sport where even the best teams suffer their share of ups and downs, the Yankees played remarkably well for the vast majority of the season, especially in the second half.  If it wasn’t obvious enough, the red color indicates the team playing well, and blue representing a slump (measured by week-to-week win percentage).

    I enjoy your blog and look forward, daily, to new entries. Yours is certainly an original and elucidating approach to the (over?) abundance of numbers in baseball. Also, I would add, you have a sure gift for graphics.

    Sometimes though, I’m left pondering. For example, in this post, what exactly is being measured? Wins minus losses?

      Hi Fred. Thanks for the comments! I added a note to the Yankees Season at a Glance visual, indicating that it is based on weekly win percentage. Good catch – I need to do a better job noting what measures I’m using! Kevin
