• The Yankees Have Lost 13 Of 17

    They currently rank next to last in wins for the American League – and they are only 1 win above being last.

    They have 15 losses in their first 23 games this season. Since 1913, only three Yankees teams have gotten off to worst starts than this year’s squad: 1913, 1991 and 1966.

    In 1913, they lost 94 games. In 1991, they lost 91 games. In 1966, they lost 89 games.

    It’s math folks. The Yankees would have to WIN SEVEN GAMES IN A ROW NOW – just to get to .500!

    Even if they played great baseball from this point out, it’s going to be a struggle to win 85 games this season.

    What a mess. Remind me again, who constructed this team? Who is responsible for ensuring that things cycle correctly to avoid situations were you have a turd like this year?

      Well, they can’t win every year. The problem I see is the lack of a plan. I’d get the lack of free agent signings if I saw the farm teams building up talent.

      They can’t sign any FAs because there’s no room in the budget thanks to the contracts of A-Rod, Tex, CC and Ellsbury. They have a budget because the sons care more about the ledger than wins and losses. Doesn’t matter, because the FA game has changed – EVERYONE has money now and the FA market is not what it used to be.

      Only way to get better is the farm. And, Cash has shown us for a zillion years he’s clueless on developing position players and starting pitchers.

      Fire Girardi…clearly he’s lost the team. Had a closed door meeting and yelled at them after Fridays loss. Some good that did…he needs to go and Cashman can follow.

      Can we fire the Steinbrenners too?
