• Yankees Since June 28th & Before May 22nd

    Posted by on July 31st, 2012 · Comments (4)

    The New York Yankees are 14-14 in their last 28 games.

    And, in their first 42 games of the season, they were 21-21.

    Luckily for the Yankees, in between these two blocks of time, they had a run of 32 games where they went 25-7.

    So, why were the Yankees able to play so great during those 32 games and only .500-ball in the 42 before it and in the 28 games since that time?

    A good portion of that was when the Yankees went 10-0 from June 8th through June 18th, all against National League teams.

    It’s too bad the Yankees don’t get to play any more inter-league games this season.

      I’m not ready to concede the past couple of weeks as predictive of a disastrous finish to this season. But if the worst does come to pass then I see the turning point, and revealing moment of the team’s makeup, as the recent series against BOS. The two games we lost said a lot about both teams: good for them, bad for us.

      In both games NYY battle valiantly to come back and tie the game in bottom of 8th. In both games we went on to lose. Our bullpen spit the bit and batters couldn’t get big hits when it counted. BOS showed a grit and desire to win that just is not there for NY. So many games this year remind me of game 5 vs DET last year.

      I hope I’m wrong. But even as those two games were being played, these thoughts came to mind.

      All I really care about at this point is that they’ve lost 4 straight and 9 of their last 12. That sucks. Is it time to worry?

      If the Yankees do choke this up, Cashman will say it was because of injuries and that it was not because of anything that he did or did not do…

      And, Levine and Trost will back him up – most of the fans too.

      That’s the real crime in this…that no one will realize that the team was old, and that’s on the GM, and that the replacement parts were not there, and that’s also on the GM. But, our GM is made of Teflon…

      Again, the slicing is selective. It’s 14-15 in the last 29, but:

      It’s not 25-7, it’s 36-13. In the first 16 games of the last 28, all against American League teams, they went 11-5. Then it’s 3-9, but the 11-5 is STILL a larger stretch of games than the 3-9.

      It’s now about two weeks of bad baseball, not a month of bad baseball.
