    Yanks Lose 10 Of 13

    Posted by on May 24th, 2015 · Comments (13)

    On the season, heading into today, the Yankees have scored 192 runs and allowed 192 runs.   Last time I checked, you’re not going to win more than you lose with that approach.

    But, this is not old news in Yankeeland:

    One Of These Things Doesn’t Belong With The Others

    Yankees have played 35 games so far in 2015.

    In their first 13 games, they went 6-7.
    In their next 12 games, they went 10-2.
    In their last 10 games, they went 5-5.

    Any guess on how they will do in their next 10-13 games?

    Pineda’s Hot Start

    Michael Pineda’s first 7 starts of 2011: 44.3 IP, 2.84 ERA, .221 OppBA Allowed

    Michael Pineda’s first 7 starts of 2015: 46.3 IP, 2.72 ERA, .250 OppBA Allowed

    This is not the first time Pineda has gotten off to a hot start. Now, whether that’s good or bad news, it depends on your point of view.
