With this win tonight, here’s the Yankees Won-Loss record in games where Worm Killer Wang has made an appearance:
At this season’s pace, the W-L mark for 2007 should be around 21-9. If that happens, you can say that Wang has a hand in about 20% of the Yankees wins in the last two seasons. Considering that Wang appears in only 20% of the Yankees total games in a season, that’s an impressive impact that he has on the team. In rough math, at the end of the day, this all says that the Yankees win about 70% of the time that Worm Killer Wang pitches (over the last two years).
Wednesday may be Sundae at Carvel, but, in Yankeeland, Worm Killer Wang day is winner day.
Closing thoughts: Do we really need Vizcaino and Rivera pitching the 8th and 9th tonight? Is there no one else in the pen who can pitch either the 8th or the 9th with a 6-run lead in the game? And, am I the only one who is watching this team click in the field and at the plate now and wondering if Jason Giambi coming back is going to mess with the collective good-time thing that’s going on presently with the Yankees?
