• June 4th vs. The Rangers

    You probably know one of my favorite baseball truisms:

    Each season, every big league team is going to win 60 games, no matter what, and, every big league team is going lose 60 games, no matter what – and it’s what they do in the other 42 games that will define their overall record.

    Well, today was one of those “other 42 games.” And, it’s nice to get a win in one of those – always nice.

    Thank you Teixiera and Melky! Good job by the Yanks pen too.

    Yanks have now won 8 of their last 13 games. If they did that over a full season, it would net 100 wins. Can’t ask for a better pace than that, right?

    Of course, there is the issue of Wang’s performance today…but, I believe we have to see at least one more start from him before we really know anything on Worm Killer…

      It’s 8 of 13 if you choose to start the calendar with the 1st game of the Phillies series. Glass half-empty; no surprise there.

      Better paces to start counting from exist….

      It’s 7 of 10 (113 wins) if you start after that series. That’s better than 100 wins.

      It’s 17 of 22 (125 wins) if you choose to start at the 9-game winning streak. 125 wins. That’s…unpossible.

      raise your hand if you really want to see Wang start in Fenway

      Because that could be a bloodbath
