Heading into this month, I thought that it would be reasonable, all things considered, if the Yankees went 15-11 for the month of June.
And, in reality, the Yankees went 16-10 – which is one better than I expected. Give credit to the schedule here – as the Yankees went 13-3 this month against the Tribe, O’s, Astros and D’backs who are all terrible this season. In any event, this all warrants giving the Yankees a birdie for the month of June 2010.
How about a review of the first three months, now that they’re in the books? Here goes:
- April 2010: – I expected a record of 13-9 and the Yankees actually went 15-7.
- May 2010: – I expected a record of 17-12 and the Yankees actually went 16-13.
- June 2010: – I expected a record of 15-11 and the Yankees actually went 16-10.
In total, overall, for the first three months, I expected the Yankees to go 45-32 and the team went 47-30 in reality.
Therefore, at this junction of the season, the Yankees are just two games better than I would expect them to be – all things considered.
Is that good, or, bad? You tell me…
