• Week 22 – 2009

    Posted by on September 7th, 2009 · Comments (7)

    What stands out the most in my mind, this past week, is that it was for the birds – with the Yankees playing the Orioles and Blue Jays. Over the span of the week, facing Baltimore and Toronto, New York went 5-2. (And, one of those losses was against Doc Halladay and the other was a game started by Sergio Mitre.)

    In any event, now, the Yankees are 23-8 this season when playing the Orioles and Blue Jays. And, they’re 19-3 when facing the Twins, A’s and Mets (combined) too.

    Combined that’s 42-11 when facing the O’s, Jays, Twins, A’s and Mets. That’s .792 baseball. Which means they’re 45-39 against everyone else. And, that’s .536 baseball.

    When this season is over, the Yankees really should send a dozen roses to the O’s, Jays, Twins, A’s and Mets – because, this year, those teams have shown New York a really good time.

      What is Bostons record against those teams? And the Angels also?

      Point making, good teams will always feast off of bad teams and then stay afloat against the good ones.
      Always has been that way and always will be that way.

      Yeah, I should ignore the facts and the stats. ;-) That would make me a great Yankees fan, right?

      Dont ignore the stats but dont expect the team to be better than what any other Championship team has been.

      You make it seem like you wnat the team to have the same winning percentage against the good teams and the bad. But if they did, they would win 120 games and that just isnt possible.

      Until you can show that record has anything to do with playoff performance or the performance for the rest of the season, then yes, I do think you should basically ignore it.
