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.
