Back on June 26th, I said that July was a big month for the Yankees – because of all the games that they would get to play at home (in Yankee Stadium).
For those not aware, 18 of the Yankees’ 25 games in July were played in the Bronx.
On June 29th, I asked readers of this blog to share how many games the Yankees should win in July.
Only 6% of those who responded said “Less Than 13.” And, just 25% said “Between 13 And 15.”
However, 61% of those who responded said that the Yankees should win “Between 16 And 20″ games in July. And, 8% said that New York should win “More Than 20.”
In the end, the Yankees went 15-10 in the month of July. That’s not a terrible record…but, given that they had so many games at home, you would have liked to see a few more wins in there.
So, since 69% of “us” (before this month started) said that the Yankees should win at least 16 games this month – and New York won 15, in reality – how would you rate the Yankees peformance, overall, this month?
