Here are the Yankees “W-L” results, this season, to date, using some selected end-points:
March 31st through April 24th: 12-6
April 25th through May 25th: 15-15
May 26th through July 2nd: 23-10
July 3rd through July 21st: 8-8
Basically, outside of the month of June, where the Yankees got fat on a lot of inter-league games, and the month of April, where the Yankees feasted on Baltimore and Minnesota (when they were struggling), New York has essentially been a .500 team this year. Is this cause for concern in Yankeeland? Or, is this just the way it works – beat up on weak teams when they’re on the schedule and break-even against everyone else?
In either case, what does it say about the Yankees chances if they reach the post-season this year? There are no soft-spots in the schedule there.
