• Are The Yankees Going Backwards?

    Posted by on June 3rd, 2014 · Comments (0)

    Just look at how the team is trending, in terms of results, over the last six years:

    2009: Won the World Series
    2010: Lost the ALCS.
    2011: Lost the ALDS.
    2012: Lost the ALCS, very badly – after just barely getting through the ALDS.
    2013: Won 85 and missed the playoffs completely.
    2014: On pace to only win 84 games.

    The trend line here is going downward, no? See:

    • In 2009, they were a powerhouse team who won 100+ games and a World Series ring.
    • In 2010, they are a near 100-win team who pushed the ALCS to six games.
    • In 2011, it was like 2010 – except that couldn’t get back to the ALCS.
    • In 2012, they won a lot during the regular season. But, in the playoffs, they were one of the worst teams in the A.L. group.
    • In 2013, they only won 85 games and deserved to win less.
    • And, we know about this year…

    Baseball is a results driven business, right? At some point, SOMEONE in the Yankees ownership team has to see this trend-line and make a change…or, is that never going to happen?
