Some interesting stats

The Yankees don't play until 7:00 tonight, so to keep myself occupied, I've been playing with the Baseball-Reference Play Index (and what a great tool it is). As a result, I have come up with some nice stats for you all to enjoy.

Since July 1, Robinson Cano is batting .400 with a .456 OBP. He is 56 for 140 with 10 home runs and 35 RBIs. He has also walked 13 times (he walked 18 times all of last season).

Since May 30, Melky Cabrera is batting .347 with a .390 OBP. He is 85 for 245 with five home runs and 35 RBIs.

Since July 1, Bobby Abreu is batting .364 with a .408 OBP. He is 48 for 132 with seven home runs and 41 RBIs (mind you, he has 11 and 76 for the season).

Since July 1, Hideki Matsui is batting .331 with a .387 OBP. He is 48 for 145 with 15 home runs and 35 RBIs (he only had eight home runs for the seson before that date).

Since Mariano Rivera's implosion against the Boston Red Sox on April 27, he is 1-1 with 18 saves in 42 innings pitched. He has struck out 43 batters, walked only two and has given up only six earned runs. His ERA went from 12.15 on that date to 2.77 where it stands today. He also has not blown a save since (knock on wood).

Since May 28, Luis Vizcaino has been on fire. He is 6-1 in 34 games with a minuscule 1.31 ERA. He has given up only five earned runs in 34 1-3 innings and has struck out 33 batters while walking 15. Opponents are batting .176 off of him. Hopefully he isn't burned out by the time the playoffs (PLAYOFFS!?!? Yes, the Yankees are now serious playoff contenders) roll around.
