Because everyone loves pie, here is a graphical representation of the Yankees Wins Above Replacement via UmpBump. Dig in!

Quick thoughts:
  • Interesting that Phil Hughes checks in slightly higher than Joba Chamberlain (and Mariano Rivera), isn't it?

  • I didn't think CC would be more valuable than Teixeira, did you?

  • Even if you adjust for the time that A-Rod missed to begin the season, he still wouldn't be as productive as Jeter.

  • If you project How is Chien Ming Wang OVER replacement?


  1. What's the main reason for the Melky/Gardner disparity?

  2. Defense: In UZR, Melky is -3.4 and Gardner is +8.3.
