WIN METHOD moving forward to 2011 season

I first must apologize for the wrong information I posted regarding Cliff Lee and his signing with the YANKEES. I can not go into the nitty gritty of how and why I got to the point where I felt Lee would definitely be a YANKEE, but I erred by misreading Lee.
However, being someone who is always positive and sees the glass as half full, this may be a good opportunity for the YANKEES to step forward in another direction. Look for some deals to be made, youngsters from the farm to be given a bigger role, and some of the veterans to step up and shine a little brighter. As the old saying goes, 'the tough get going when the going gets tough'. The playoffs are not earned by stats of individual players, but by WINS earned by all players on the team. All of the current commotion and ado can be pushed to the side and the team can and will move forward to the playoffs and beyond for yet another year in 2011. The best rise to a challenge, and we are going to be the best again.
Look for Andy Pettitte to come back for one more year, AJ Burnett to have his best year ever, the captain to rebound with a brilliant year, and some new pitchers on the block to step up. We will earn 28 in 11. And we will earn it because of the character and fortitude our team will display. We are WIN METHOD.

No need to apologize WIN METHOD. Your character is second to none. 28 in 11.

Erica Nuyens said...

Great response WIN METHOD. We will overcome. Love ya.

Gary Hopkins said...

You may be right WIN METHOD. With CC, and if Andy comes back, AJ pitches the way he can, Hughes and a budding farm pitcher, we could be the very fine.

Dominic said...

Lee is from Arkansas, what could you expect.

Sharon/NC said...

Lee not coming to NY is disappointing, but as WIN METHOD says, we will go forward and WIN.

Andy K said...

If Lee didn't want to be here, we would surely not want to have him here. It was his choice for his own reasons.

Linda Pardo said...

I love the challenge 2011 brings. This may be the best thing for the team as a team.

Nick Polito said...

No Lee, but we got Russell Martin which helps solidify the catching corps. One step at a time.

Giambino said...

Some stat frauds are already saying that the 2011 should be skipped fast forward to the World Series so the Phillies and bosux can get it over with. Wake up frauds, the bosux and Phillies niether will reach the WS. The game is not played by individual stats. It is played on the field and decided by WINS.

Deb F said...

When things look bleak, WIN METHOD lifts us up. Yes, 28 in 11.

Grosner said...

WIN METHOD and his sources know exactly what they are doing. Leaking "info" to discourage the Rangers and keeping Lee out of the American League? I wouldn't doubt it!

RLA said...

I think it's more fun to win when you are not expected to win by so many. 28 in 11 will be fun.

Benny Pake said...

Grosner...you never know nowadays. Everyone seems to play some kind of angle.

William Mensom said...

In my opinion whatever WIN METHOD does is on the up and up. He knows his baseball and what it takes to make a team win.

Sharon/NC said...

Nice blog post WIN METHOD. Many great responses from posters. To believe you can achieve is to overcome the first obstacle of achieving.

Tom Loughlin said...

From what I have been reading via all the media sources regarding Cliff Lee, the Rangers, the Yankees, and the Phillies.....it appears Lee is a two faced, phony, lying, sack of manure.

YankeeMike said...

Sounds about right to me Tom. We are probably far better off without him.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Any player has a choice to be a Yankee or not. Those who don't want to be a Yankee are very ignorant in my opinion.

Fred Slube said...

We may come together better as a team without Lee. Teams win, not any one player. Players playing as a team and win are the best.

Bert Jackson said...

Lets just get someone else to pitch in the rotation. Someone with guts, unlike Lee.

Carl Hooks said...

I can live with that.

johnsondc said...

It looks like Andy will be coming back. Pettitte to save the day, again.

Eddie OConnor said...

Heard that too. I will be good having Pettitte for another season and to earn 28 in 11 in his final season.

Hans Schroeder said...

Being a WIN METHOD team, I bet the Yankees are getting fired up about being underdogs for next season.

Norm Henson said...

I am looking forward to a banner year from the Yankees in 2011.

George W said...

Martin deal has been finalized.

Martin Scott said...

We only need one decent pitcher to go with CC, AJ, Andy, and Hughes.

Phil Jenkins said...

Good thing for the bosux that they added some bats, because I think their rotation will crash and burn big time this season.

Vctor Gandozi said...

What rotation. A couple of has beens and a couple of unproven time tested youngsters?

Yankeeforever said...

Tampa has been decimated lineup wise, but they still have decent pitching. The sux are the odd man out when it comes to the rotation. But they are stockpiling relievers to shorten the game like the Yankees have done.

Vctor Gandozi said...

We took on Pedro Feliciano from the mets. He did well for that sad sack team and could shine for the Yankees.

Gene Wilson said...

Feliciano is a very reasonable second lefty for the pen.

David Stern said...

We have two or three minor league quality starters who could be a big surprise for no cash layout.

Erica Nuyens said...

You called Pettitte coming back for one more season right WIN METHOD. What's that now 99.6% right. Love ya.

Frankie Sergi said...

With Pettitte returning we need just one more starter to fill the rotation and one backup if someone goes down. Nova will probably fill one spot. Then a signing or another farm kid.

Hans Schroeder said...

We have two or three other minor league possibilities coming along. We will be fine because we are WIN METHOD.

Patricia Piper said...

Less than two months for pitchers and catchers.

bigbadwolf said...

Don't forget WIN METHODs blog pick of Adam Warren. I think he needs more time in the minors before he's ready though.

Steve said...

Looking at the Yankees defensively for 2011. Way above average at first, second, and shortstop. average at catcher. Above average in left field and center field, and average in right field. Leaving only third at much below average. That just means Jeter has to cover a little more ground. which he can do, that is what makes him the best defensive shortstop in baseball.

Dominic said...

You are correct Steve. Our defense is second to no one except at third base, and with Arods contract no one will take him without us paying a major portion of his bloated salary which he attained while cheating when on steroids.

WIN METHOD said...

Just to spare any torment out there. Grienke was not WIN METHOD, and in reality is a disgrace as a human being. His winning of a Cy Young award just goes to show how meaningless that individual award is.

bigbadwolf said...

I figured that when the Yankees really didn't seem to show much if any interest in the bum.

Tony Saleh said...

Isn't it interesting to see so many pitchers jump to the inferior nl to get out of the supewrior AL. Add Greinke to the list.

Benny Pake said...

They can't take the AL heat and competition.

Jerry Curcio said...

Man are we in good shape and still have a boatload of cash ready to be used.

Claude Reeves said...

We are still WIN METHOD, and that makes all the difference, Only once under WIN METHOD did we not make the playoffs. It will be 28 in 11.

William Mensom said...

Positive thoughts make for positive outcomes. Leave the whining to the losers and stat frauds.

Yankeeforever said...

We still have Jeter to lead us and he has done that better than anyone position player in baseball.
Lifetime .300 hundred hitter and best defensive shortstop in baseball with tremendous range and arm.

Linda Rice said...

So many fans in the wasteland of baseball forums, rip the Yankees, rip Jeter, rip Girardi, rip Cashman, rip the Steinbrenner sons, and on and on ad nauseum. But the Yankees always find a way to get the job done.

will-i-am said...

I just read the Yankee luxury tax this year is the smallest in something like ten years. see what you save when you don't waste money on players like Lee.

Grosner said...

I'm hearing the Yanks are going to offer Damon a one year deal to serve as a backup/fill in role in 2011. He's old, but he's WIN METHOD.

Sharon/NC said...

Merry Christmas sports fans.

YankeeMike said...

Damon would make a perfect PH and backup. He sure is WIN METHOD with multiple WS rings.
Merry Christmas to all. 28 in 11.

Victor Bruno said...

Grosner..YankeeMike...I would like Damon, but he may not be satisfied being a bench player with the Yankees.

Patricia Piper said...

I agree guys. Damon would be fine, but will he come under bench player status?

Gus Papa said...

I think Damon won't come to the Yankees for the reasons you guys speak of. BUT, I don't any team but an also ran can give him playing time. Damon may rather be on a winner than a loser. He has the choice to make.

Vctor Gandozi said...

Damon would only get decent playing time if one of the regulars went down for a long period of time. We really don't need him. Don't we still have nick Johnson lying around.

Tom Loughlin said...

Yeah, I forgot about Johnson. With Posada as DH were is there a spot for him?

Deb F said...

Damon really wants to be an everyday player, so I do not think he will come here.

Giambino said...

Merry Christmas Yankee fans.

William Mensom said...

Merry Christmas and a 28 in 11 New Year.

Thor Gustaffson said...

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.

Erica Nuyens said...

Merry Christmas WIN METHOD and all Yankee fans. Love ya.

Teena/Bronx said...

Merry Christmas

Yankeeforever said...

Yes, Merry Christmas.

Benny Pake said...

Merry Christmas and a happy 28 in 11.

Zhaire said...

Hale Yankee fans. Best wishes for all.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

To one and all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hans Schroeder said...

The best to all.

johnsondc said...

The very merriest of Christmases to all.

Vctor Gandozi said...

Merry Christmas and to a 28 in 11 New Year.

Linda Pardo said...

Merry Christmas

Phil Jenkins said...

Merry Christmas guys and gals. 28 in 11.

Fred Slube said...

Merry Christmas.

Bert Jackson said...

Hello fans. Merry Christmas everyone.

WIN METHOD said...

Hoping everyone is having a great holiday.

Carl Joyner said...

A white Christmas for many. 28 in 11 is the prize for the new year.

Sandro Icavor said...

Me too. Merry Christmas all.

Izzy Henandez said...

Hope everybody got what they wanted for Christmas. I want a WS title in 2011.

Alex Antonius said...

A late Christmas hello fans.

Martin Scott said...

Late for Christmas wishes, but early for a Happy New Year to all.

Al Ashton said...

Sorry I missed everyone for Christmas, but Happy New Year anyway. Lets get 28 in 11.

Gene Wilson said...

Looks like all is quiet on the rumor front. Things will pickup after the holidays.

Billy Morgan said...

We will celebrate 2011 with our 28th World Series championship.

Eddie OConnor said...

Great, lets think positive like WIN METHOD believes and good things will happen. 28 in 11.

johnny said...

Go Yankees

bigbadwolf said...

Missed you johnny. Hope you had a great Christmas. Go Yankees.

Sharon/NC said...

Happy New Year to all. Stay healthy.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Spring training is getting closer and a run for our 28th will begin. Best wishes to all for 2011.

YankeeMike said...

The stat frauds have written the Yankees off for 2011 on their paper sheets. The fools need to wake up and discover the games are determined on the field of play by WINS.

Gus Papa said...

Lets get it done in tn 2011. Happy New Year to all.

Steve said...

Stat frauds stat frauds. I am sick an tired of their arrogant ignorance.

Paul Hirschman said...

Not arrogant, just plain ignorant. Only wins can determine the best.

William Mensom said...

Best wished for the new year WIN METHOD fans. The smartest fans in the baseball world. Fans that realize winning determines the best of the best not individual stats.

Teena/Bronx said...

Happy New Year Yankee fans and may the new year bring our 28th.

Tom Loughlin said...

Happy New Year.

Erica Johnston said...

Best wishes everyone and particularly Yankee and WIN METHOD fans.

Gene Wilson said...

And the new year will bring the 28th WS title.

Carl Joyner said...

Happy New Year. Lets make it a good one.

Linda Pardo said...

Happy New Year.

Bert Jackson said...

To all... HAPPY NEW YEARS.

bigbadwolf said...

Looking forward to the new year and another winning WIN METHOD season.

johnsondc said...

And lets make 2011 a WS ring year for the Yankees and WIN METHOD.

Fred Slube said...

It's 2011, the year of the Yankee. Happy New Year everyone. 28 in 11.

Teena/Bronx said...

Happy New Year.. Yes I am up and alive.

Giambino said...

Happy and healthy new year Yankee fans.

Steve said...

Hoping for a WIN METHOD year for all Yankee fans.

Bill Butler said...

OK people, back to reality, can we win it all with what we have right now?

johnsondc said...

That's hard to say. We don't know if we have Pettitte. Yes if we do. there still will be some fine tuning in the coming months, and do not be surprised to see one or two minor league up and comers get a real shot. We all may be pleasantly surprised.

William Mensom said...

We are top of the line competitive with what we have now. Winning it all may depend on another piece of two which we may already have and don't know it yet.

Vctor Gandozi said...

Or we may know it and no body is talking so as not to raise expectations too high.

Linda Rice said...

When the competitive juices start flowing this team will shine.

Dominic said...

28 in 11 is the prize. We will overcome the doomsayers.

Billy Morgan said...

If Andy comes back for another year we will be fine.

Deb F said...

We have enough very solid minor league starters. It may be good and a benefit to give them solid chances.

bigbadwolf said...

WIN METHODs special draft pick Adam Warren got married in WIN METHODs home town over the holidays. Watch for him.

Steve said...

Yes, WIN METHOD did concentrate on pitching over the past few drafts. Soon the kids will take charge.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

It appears that Pettittes competitive juices are starting to flow and he is tending to come back for another season like WI"N METHOD has said he would.

Gus Papa said...

It will be great to have Andy back for another year. AJ is going to have is best year ever. And with CC and Hughes we only need one more arm, and there are several ready to come on the big league seen.

Gary Hopkins said...

Good news hopefully.

YankeeMike said...

Where is everyone?..hibernating.

Steve said...

Just not much going on right now.

Warren Hammond said...

Not to much to talk about until something happens. 28 in 11.

Anonymous said...

I hope, it's OK

Tony Gigante said...

Just over a month to the battery reports. Baseball will be alive again, the greatest game.

Carl Joyner said...

I like that Cashman is not panicking and making deals just to make deals. Just stick with WIN METHOD players and all will be fine.

johnsondc said...

Patience wins out in the end. We are still the best, no matter what the talking heads and stat frauds say.

Don Reed said...

There really isn't much to talk about. Lets get the season rolling.

Eddie OConnor said...

One month until pitchers and catchers.

Pete H said...

Still no action from the front office. What's up WIN METHOD.

Deb F said...

I think our staff will be fine when Pettitte returns. I agree with many here, AJ may have his best year ever.

Hans Schroeder said...

I think Pettitte will definitely will return for another year. He has to much class to string the Yankees along. that may be why the front office is not chasing their tail for a half-ass starter.

Gene Wilson said...

WIN METHOD said Pettitte would be back for one more season.

Jerry Curcio said...

I like things quiet and lesser expectations. Yes, we will overcome all obstacles real and unreal.

Alex Antonius said...

WIN METHOD fans. Always positive. that is what happens when you WIN consistently.

Harry Stavris said...

The latest rumor is that Pettitte may not be ready to start the season.

bigbadwolf said...

The Yankee bullpen, the best in baseball, just got a little bit stronger with the signing of Rafael Sorinao. The game just got a little bit shorter for the starting staff.

Vctor Gandozi said...

What a great signing and coup for the Yankees.

Mike Smith said...

Solid signing. Baseball can't come back soon enough. Football sucks.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Don't anyone forget WIN METHODs special pick of Adam Warren as a starter somewhere down the road. Also Noesi.

Yankeeforever said...

WIN METHOD knows more about winning baseball than anyone I have ever come across. He selected pitchers and they will prove to be winners in the majors.

Phil Jenkins said...

It would be great to go into spring training with a few of our up and coming star young pitchers fighting for a rotation spot. Makes for a bright season for the team.

Teena/Bronx said...

I am looking forward to this season more than I have ones in the past. I am glad we didn't get Lee. WIN METHOD always finds a way to get to the finish line.

Steve said...

I giggle when I see those who don't know or don't believe in the WIN METHOD talk about Yankee signings. The Yankees signed Soriano because cashman was told to sign him. WIN METHODs influence with the Steinbrenner ownership continues after the passing of "the boss". Cashman does what he is told and WIN METHOD always keeps us in contention.

Stan the Man said...

If the baseball world with their head buried in the sand only knew of the greatness of the WIN METHOD. We here are blessed.

RLA said...

AMEN, Stan. It just seems that so many people believe losing is good and winning is bad.

Sharon/NC said...

People miss the fun of baseball. Not everyone can win and most lose, but the fun is the competition and trying to win. To try to be the best you can be every season. With WIN METHOD players who believe winning as a team is more important than any one players personal achievements.

Victor Bruno said...

Now the baseball forum fools want Joba to be a starter. Heaven help them through their ignorance.

Carl Hooks said...

They are no dumber than the talking head sports writers and ESPN analysts they follow.

johnsondc said...

You hit the nail on the head Carl. Losers think individual stats are the goal while winners believe the team winning is the goal.

Tom Loughlin said...

Isn't baseball played for the team to win? Why in the hell would you rate anyone or anything on other than winning and achieving the goal.

William Mensom said...

Because they are stat frauds. A fraud uses mis-information to cloud the truth. Frauds hate the fact that WINS and WINNING define the best teams and players in the game.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Winning is everything.

Martin Scott said...

Not to stat frauds Vlad. It's all about the individual to stat frauds.

Linda Pardo said...

Spring training is getting closer and the world comes alive again.

Gus Papa said...

Can't come soon enough Linda.

Benny Pake said...

The competition for starter spots will be most interestiong.

Yankeeforever said...

Yes it will. Could be two spots open if Andy doesn't start the season or doesn't come back at all.

Martin Scott said...

All will be fine. We have tons of talent with a GOLD GLOVE defense at shortstop, second base, and first base. A powerful lineup and the big sleeper in AJ, who has something to prove.

David Stern said...

If AJ comes up big that will help us go a very long way.

johnny said...

Go Yankees.

Linda Rice said...

Hi johnny. You will get to see another great season of Yankee baseball real soon. Concentrate on school first.

Dominic said...

AJ 15 to 20 wins.

Claude Reeves said...

I'll take that, and probably so will AJ.

Pat Piper said...

Hopefully AJ can do it.

Victor Bruno said...

Plus Hughes is just going to reach the top of his game. He has so many years left and is a top notch starter right now.

Eddie OConnor said...

I agree about Hughes. He is young, still learning, and gaining confidence. Between CC, AJ, and Hughes we are looking for 15-20 wins from each, at minimum.

Billy Morgan said...

Don't we have a big kid Delances at Trenton also.

bigbadwolf said...

His name is Delin Betances, Billy. Yes, he will be a star for us soon.

Benny Pake said...

The Yanks bring their kids along slowly. He will be another good one.

johnsondc said...

I see Cashman said today that he was told to sign Soriano. Thank you WIN METHOD.

Steve said...

So little does the baseball world know of WIN METHOD. That is what you should expect, they have their head buried in the sand.

will-i-am said...

Also buried in their meaningless stat sheets.

Fred Slube said...

I know it has been mentioned, but I really do like the fact that the Yankees are being summarily overlooked by the talking know little heads.

Frankie Sergi said...

I agree. No high expectations.

Teena/Bronx said...

The WIN METHOD will lead us into the light, again.

Phil Jenkins said...

Only missed the playoffs once since the inception of the WIN METHOD, with more pennants and WS championships than any other team.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

It looks like we will have Andruw Jones to replace Marcus Thames.

RLA said...

Jones is a Yankee if he passes the physical.

Vctor Gandozi said...

No big deal. I can't wait for spring training and the rotation spot battle.

Dominic said...

Jones may wind up to be a little more dependable hitter and will surely be an upgrade defensively. Will get playing time against some tough lefties.

Steve said...

This is the finest most upbeat blog about baseball I have ever come across. The few contrarians to winning who come here get shot down very quickly and do not get banned. But for sure if one of us went to one the fool baseball forums with winning opinions, we always get banned. The stat frauds have so much to hide and be ashamed of.

bigbadwolf said...

I second that Steve. Been here since the biginning. Best there is and WIN METHOD knows baseball and what he is talking about.

Erica Nuyens said...

WIN METHOD and the WIN METHOD defines the best about baseball and what baseball should be about. Love ya WIN METHOD.

Zhaire said...

No sports of any value to watch. Baseball season is to short.

Al Ashton said...

We will have spring training games in about five weeks. Then life returns.

Bert Jackson said...

Not soon enough. Anymore about Andy?

Teena/Bronx said...

Being from NY, I will be watching the Jet game tonight, but I would rather be watching the Yankees.

William Mensom said...

I haven't heard anything new about Andy.

Pete H said...

Is he even coming to spring training?

RLA said...

I've heard he may not have been working out over the winter.

Deb F said...

I heard the same. I also heard that he wouldn't take much time to be ready.

Hans Schroeder said...

We will just have to wait to see what happens.

Lyle James said...

The battery reports in about two weeks. Things will happen fast.

Saul L said...

It's going to be a great season.

Jerry Curcio said...

It's going to be a great season when we win it all.

Linda Pardo said...

I think thde Yankees will start the season with maybe two of their young studs in the rotation.

johnsondc said...

Don't forget Montero may be moved up to the bigs in late May fi he does well at Trenton and is ready.

Sharon/NC said...

It will be nice to see some guys earn their stripes. Yankee pinstripes that is.

Yankeeforever said...

Earning something is best for a team. Or almost for anything.
