    Jeter Goes 0 For 7 For The First Time Ever

    Posted by on May 3rd, 2014 · Comments (2)

    Yup, he’s never gone hit-less in 7+ At Bats in game, ever – before last night.  And, that’s over 2,625 games played.

    Overall, this season, his BA/OBA/SLG line this season is .250/.324/.283 (in 103 PA).

    Then again, the Captain got off to bad starts in 2004 and 2011 as well. So, we still need to wait and see if this is really bad news.

    How Jeter has done in the Yankees first 28 games, each season in his career:

    Very Few Home Teams Lose Game Six Of World Series

    Posted by on October 29th, 2013 · Comments (0)

    There have been 63 “Game Six” contests in baseball history.

    And, the home team has won 40 of those 63 games. For those scoring at home, that’s 64% of the time.

    Further, since 1982, there have been 15 “Game Six” match-ups in the Fall Classic. And, the home team has won 12 of those 15 games. That’s a winning percentage of 80%.

    Sorry Cardinals fans.
