• That Sinking Feeling In Yankeeland

    Posted by on May 5th, 2011 · Comments (3)

    After starting the 2011 season by winning 12 of their first 18 games, with today’s loss, the Yankees have now dropped 6 of their last 11 games. Is this the start of a major skid for New York? Or, just a bump in the road?

    My prediction? On July 1st the Yankees will be much closer to a .500 team than a .600 team.

    Of course, we’ll have to wait eight weeks to see if that comes true or not.

      Actually, they’ve lost three in a row. They’d won 5 of 8 before that.

      And, what, the last three games don’t count? :-)

      No, my point is, saying they’ve lost 6 of 11 is implying the problem is nearly two weeks long. (Which is sorta true in one way; their hitting has been mediocre to poor the last 11 games.)

      But saying they’ve lost their last 3 implies a short-term slump, and casts a different light than saying they’ve dropped 6 of 11.
