    Just a couple of things to think about in Yankeeland as we close out August…

    The last time the Yankees were in first place in September and failed to make the playoffs was 1974. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only six times in their history did they blow a first-place lead in September.

    The Yankees did not hit a home run in their 2-1 home win over the Blue Jays [on Tuesday]. It was the just the Bombers’ fourth win in 2012 in which they failed to homer. Every other MLB team has at least twice as many wins. And the only team with a worse record than New York (4-18, .182) in such games is Houston (9-49, .155).
