The Most Important Yankees Hitter In 2010.

The adjacent table is an attempt to find out who was the most important hitter on the Yankees in 2010.  It uses the difference in OPS+ in wins and losses as the measure to evaluate the hitters.  For more on OPS+ click HERE. 
I expected to see Gardner at the top of the list because he is usually the tablesetter for the top of the order, as he usually batted 9th or 1st.  Additionally, I expected him to be at the top because when he gets on base, he’s explosive.  Gardner’s difference of 92 finished second behind Granderson’s difference of 111.  No surprise that Cervelli,Thames, and Swisher are at the bottom.  These stats were found at baseball-reference.com
