Giancarlo Stanton's Yankees Tenure Has Been A Massive Failure

Giancarlo Stanton has hit under .190 since the 2022 all-star break. There is no excuse, he has been awful. Yet in some way though his 2023 WAR is only a -0.1 despite the Yankees being multiple games below .500%.


Stanton last had a .250+ batting average season in 2021, where he hit .273 in 139 games. He is signed through 2027, but seems to be an empty shell of his former self.


So far in 2023 Stanton has played in 74 games for 267 at-bats, where he has posted a .199 average with a .715 OPS.


Stanton’s stat line between Miami and New York shows the fall-off perfectly:


Last 6 years w/MIA

736 games

.271 .929

211 HRs

526 RBIs


6 years w/NYY

522 games (560 max if plays rest of ‘23 season)

.241 .822

129 HRs

344 RBIs


Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman is obsessed with Billy Beane’s ‘Moneyball’ analytics and method; Giancarlo Stanton has tested his moneyball game.


In six seasons in New York Giancarlo Stanton has received $50,591,449 while on the IL, missing 310 games as a Yankee.... Let’s break it down..


2018: missed 4 games $617,283

2019: missed 144 games $23,111,111

2020: missed 37 games (60 game season) $5,938,271

2021: missed 23 games $4,117,283

2022: missed 52 games $9,308,641

2023: missed 50 games so far $7,498,856


Remember: New York traded away Joey Gallo after he hit .159 in 140 games. Giancarlo Stanton hasn’t hit above .200 over his last 140+ games.
