The Yankees, this season, are 6-0 when they play the Seattle Mariners (who have the worst record in the league). And, against all other teams this season, New York is 19-26.
After today’s loss to Baltimore, the Yankees are now (to date, this season) 14-16 when facing a team with a record below .500. (For a point of comparison, as of this morning, the Red Sox were 14-4, so far, this season when facing a team with a record below .500.)
For $209 million, you kind of expect a team to hold it’s own better against the good teams and beat up on the bad teams, besides Seattle, don’t-cha?
