    Click here to see the theory. And, I stress, it’s just a theory – and darn close to just being an excuse.

      I guess it’s as a good a theory as any, but one would expect the theory to hold up against RHP too. That doesn’t seem to be the case. I think another plausible theory is that their LH batters (Abreu, Matsui, Damon, and Cano) all had prolonged slumps this year which made the lineup more vulnerable to LHP. When those guys are hitting well, the Yanks dominate LHP.

      That could be it, looking at the dates:

      4/23/2007
      4/24/2007
      5/11/2007
      5/13/2007
      5/16/2007
      5/18/2007
      5/19/2007
      6/20/2007
      6/24/2007
      6/27/2007
      7/13/2007
      7/26/2007
      7/28/2007

      5 of the 13 came from 5/11 to 5/19
