    One third of the season down. Two thirds to go. Most losses for the Yankees, since 1913, in their 1st 54 games of the season.

      Interesting though, in 2007, they won 94 games and came in 2nd. I don’t see that happening this year, but we probably didn’t back then, either.

      We had a juiced up and ready to opt out A-Rod hitting 50 homers in 2007. That’s not happening this year.

      Given changes in scheduling and divisional play, the numbers probably don’t mean as much as you seem to think they do.
