WIN METHOD MO

By now most YANKEE fans have heard the terrible news about the greatest closer in baseball history, Mariano Rivera.  Mo tore his right ACL shagging flies in the outfield in Kansas City before last nights game.   Rivera will have to decide to come back or not.  He was thinking of retiring after this year.  My wife and I just had lunch with Mo in Baltimore in early April.  I am so sad and I am shedding tears as many YANKEE fans will.  I hope Mo decides to return and leave baseball from the mound as he deserves.  You are loved Mo.  In life, one never knows what will happen, but we must play the cards we are dealt and move forward.

What will the YANKEES do to replace Rivera for this season.  They have decisions to make.  We will all have opinions, here is mine.  Robertson becomes the closer.  I would move either Phelps or Hughes to the bullpen as setup man along with Soriano.  I would tell Soriano he needs to step up big time.  Joba may be back for the second half of the season.  Starters would be CC, Kuroda, Nova, Pettitte, (Phelps or Hughes) or someone who may be ready to step in.  Adam Warren is a possibility.  Mitchell to the bullpen.  Play for six innings from the starters and finish off the seventh, eight, by any of the group or combinations of the group with Robertson closing it out.

Have a team meeting and a no feeling sorry for yourselves wake up talk.  Jeter will lead the way, he always has.  The lineup needs to step up and stop taking big dollars for not producing.  Yes, Arod, you are the number one culprit.  But there are other right now.  Grind out every day every game and make the playoffs.  Damn it, play WIN METHOD baseball.   You can't win every game, but you can win enough to move to the second season.

We are YANKEES and we are WIN METHOD.  We are the best.  Lets hear it fans........


LETS GO YANKEES....LETS GO YANKEES

Mets score three times in the second off Andy with the help of Cano error.

Saul L said...

Mets lead 3-0 after five. Yankee bats silent.

johnsondc said...

Yank bottom of 6th. First and third one out, Afraud can't bring in run and ends innings with a DP grounder.
Fraud

Eddie OConnor said...

Yanks cut Met lead to 3-2 on Russell Martin 2 run blast in the 7th.

johnsondc said...

Led by Jeter hit and hustle Yanks rally for 2 8th inning runs and a 4-3 lead. Soriano for the save in the 9th.

MomanRick said...

Yanks up 4-3 after eight.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Jeter, Grandyman, and Tes deliver for a 4-3 Yankee lead after 8.

bigbadwolf said...

Soriano blows the save on the first two batters.

Stan the Man said...

Logan comes in to save Soriano and Yanks, but it is 4-4 with Yanks coming with a chance of sudden win.

johnsondc said...

Martin wins it with a walk off home run. 5-4 win and a sweep.

Steve said...

Alex Antonius said...

A WIN METHOD baseball win and game and streak.

Nate Berkus said...

Great win. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeep.

Tony Gigante said...

It wasn't pretty, but we hung in there and triumphed. I'll take a win any way I can get it.

Victor Gandozi said...

Onto Atlanta and hot humid rainy weather. Lets take another series.

Zhaire said...

The AL East continues to be the beast of MLB.

Maurice Gaudeaux said...

Cross your fingers as the Yankee pitchers bat at the inferior league parks.

Rick Merenick said...

Isn't the rotation Nova, CC, Kuroda.

johnsondc said...

Yes rick, that should be the rotation. but there is a lot of rain forecast down that way.

Phil Jenkins said...

No let up guys. Relax and you lose. Wins is what we play for.

Teena/Bronx said...

I can't believe I was at the only Yankee loss in the past week.

bigbadwolf said...

We forgive you Teena.

Frank Sergi said...

Do it again Ivan, keep everything rolling.

Bill Autry said...

Lets go guys. Take it to them. Another win Nova.

Steve said...

Yankees with single runs in the 1st., 2nd., and 3rd. lead 3-0 after 3.

AAA said...

3-0 Yanks after five.

Saul Irving said...

Arod does it again. first and third one out and he hits into another double play. can't score the runner from third with less than two out. Still 3-0 after 6.

Carl Hooks said...

Final 3-0 Yanks. Nova goes seven very strong innings. Rapada, Wade, and Logan finish the 8th and 9th.

Stan the Man said...

Missed a lot of opportunities to blow the game open, but none the less, a win.

Jed,NJ said...

Excellent outing for Nova who earns another win. CC tomorrow for the series.

Andy K said...

Come on CC, don't be the bump in the wheel again. Win and get the series in the bag.

William Mensom said...

There is no question the CC and Nova are the best one two punch in baseball. Add in Pettitte, Hughes, and Kuroda and you have one heck of a rotation that is very likely the best in baseball.

Quay Ho said...

Nova was sharp again. the bullpen did its job, and the Yankees won. The world is right.

Samie Brown said...

Been a Yankee fan for a long time and I finally came around to this blog. It is positive and a great read. Winning is what it is all about.

Lem Barnes said...

Be the ace CC. There are guys right on your heels.

Benny Pake said...

Everybody have a good game and keep the good run going.

Giambino said...

CC gives up 3 quick runs and the Yanks are down 3-0 after 3.

Victor Gandozi said...

What a sweet win coming back from 4-0 with 6 in the 8th. CC got the win, Rapada the hold and Soriano the save. Series taken.

Yankeeforever said...

Super come back win with Afraud delievering when it counts for a change. Swisher with the game winner.

Cory said...

Go for the sweep today. Another serioes in the bag.

Gene A said...

LETS GO YANKEES SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEP

AAA said...

Can we pull off a double down sweep?

MomanRick said...

Game time. Do it again Hiroki. Shut them down.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks jump out front 1-0 after one on Jeter lead off double and a RBI single from Afraud. Go Afraud go.

Steve said...

1-0 Yanks after 4 in a steady rain.

AAA said...

Yanks win 3-2. Sweeeeeeeppppp.

johnsondc said...

Kuroda 6 innings 2 runs. Logan, Eppley, Soriano, shutout 7th, 8th, 9th for the win, hold and save. Sweep.

Warren Hammond said...

Double down sweep for the Yankees. Yanks now 8-1 against nl teams this year. Oh yeah, we have taken over first place. WINS!!!!!

William Mensom said...

We are going great right now. But fans, remember one of WIN METHODS greatest tenets. 'No team is as good as they appear when they are red hot, and no team is as bad as they appear when they are ice cold.'

Eddie OConnor said...

Oh how true William. But it is sure nice to be hot. Just have to limit the cold spells. Nice win for two straight sweeps now.

Mark D said...

The train is moving very nicely. All without Mo, Robertson, and Joba. A true testament on just how great the WIN METHOD is and how deep this team is.

Sharon/NC said...

Enjoy today off and then be ready for a real tough weekend of baseball against a really good team.

Teena/Bronx said...

That's the B D and 4 train Mark. They all stop at the Stadium.

Chen Cho said...

LETS GO YANKEES....LETS GO YANKEES

Gary Long said...

Back in action tonight. Keep the run going, the train moving, and win.

Thank you for another informative blog. Where else may just I get that

I have a mission that I am just now operating on, and I've been on the look out for such information.

Zhaire said...

Come on Phil, give us another good one.

William Mensom said...

This series is going to be a barn burner as we move into the lions den.

Oliver Moore said...

Yankees up and clinging to a 2-1 lead after 5.

Tomas Velez said...

Jeter with a big WHEN it counts hit with the bases loaded in the 7th breaks game open and the Yankees lead 6-1 after 7. Hughes on tap for the win with another terrific effort.

Deb F said...

It sure looks like Hughes is back. One run over six innings. Eppley with a shutout seventh, Yanks up 6-1.

evan donohue said...

Rapada with a 1,2,3 8th. 6-1 Yanks.

Hank B said...

6-1 Yanks after 8. The train is rolling. And game one is ours.

johnsondc said...

This is what a stat fraud, and extra ignorant one may I add, posted as Jeter was coming up in the 7th with the bases loaded and one out..."""They need to ph for Jeter here""". Wrong, fraud. Jeter delivers the single that breaks the game open.

Saul Irving said...

Robertson come in for the 9th. a perfect spot to get his feet wet. He allows a run, a meaningless one but closes out the 9th. Yanks win it 7-2.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeee Yankeeeeeees Winnnnnn.

7 straight. 17-4 run. .810 win % during run.

Teena/Bronx said...

Great to win first game of this series. Andy tomorrow. Go Yankees.

William Mensom said...

Nice to see Robertson get back and get an inning of work without pressure. Girardi is a genius at putting people in the right spot at the right time.

AAA said...

I have to admit, before the National series started I would have been happy with one win. that is now in the bank.

Linda Pardo said...

Keep it going Andy. Keep it going team. Lets go Yankees.

Eugene D said...

Take them down and keep the train moving Andy.

Deb F said...

A few more clutch hits recently. Sure makes a difference between winning and losing.

Steve said...

Nats core first with two in the second on a run broken bat double off the left field wall.

Bob Behan said...

Yanks get one back in the fourth and cut Nat lead to 2-1 after four.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks score 2 in the 6th and lead 3-2 after 6. Real good game.

Tony Gigante said...

Extra innings.

Steve said...

Headed to the 12th. 3-3 after 11.

Ty Keel said...

Garcia in to pitch and throws a 1,2,3 12th. On to the 13th.

Steve said...

Teixeira 2 RBI double gives Yanks 5-3 lead in the 14th.

Carl Hooks said...

It's over 5-3 we win. Garcia the win, Soriano the save, Tex the game winning hit.

Steve said...

8 in a row. 18-4 last 22. Another series won and go for the triple sweep tomorrow.

Warren Hammond said...

WOW. We are getting the breaks and the wins.

AAA said...

What a game. Phenom Harper goes 0-7 with 5 Ks and ends the game with two men on.

RLA said...

What a grand win. Jeter goes from an 0-2 count to get the hit that sets up the inning for the win on Texs game winner.

YankeeMike said...

Pettitte 2 runs in 7 innings + bullpen 1 run in 7 innings = WIN.

CC for the sweep.

WIN METHOD said...

For anonymous at basketball forum. I, and am sure all the knowledgeable WIN METHOD fans here gladly accept your challenge and that of anyone who thinks individual stats are more important than wins and winning.

To force WIN METHOD fans to have to sign up and post at a forum over run with advertisements and cluttered with debris is not what the WIN METHOD is about. Just as you were able to post anonymously (with no name provided) and did not have to go through a meaningless signup process, I think it far more logical that any of your stat fraud cronies come here and post legitimate questions and concerns that any WIN METHOD fan can address with common sense and logic. Here at the WIN METHOD blog, there are no tedious signup procedures, no page cluttering advertisements, just good intelligent baseball wisdom. Carry on, the ball is in your court and the WIN METHOD fans are winning already. Remember, no profanity allowed, good luck.

bigbadwolf said...

CC for the sweep today. Step up CC, you are being challenged for #1.

Hey anonymous, bring it on. Love to see how foolish you are trying to explain anything is more important than winning.

AAA said...

Now two wins in the bank and as I stated I would have been happy with one. Glad I am not on the field.

Steve said...

Lets see if the anonymous stat fraud comes back and if he brings any of his buddies here to an unencumbered site.

Erica Johnston said...

Get the brooms out, Time to sweeeeep again.

Sharon/NC said...

Guys, Nova is starting today. CC tomorrow.

Domenic said...

The fraud pops out with runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs. Same old, same old. Tex gets sac fly for a 1-0 early lead.

Stan the Man said...

1-1 after 3.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

2-1 Yanks sfter 5 on Grandyman Ballantine blast.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Cano with a Ballantine blast in the 7th.

Gus Papa said...

4-1 Yankees after 8 as Ivan Nova goes 7 2/3 sparkling innings.

Warren Hammond said...

9 in a row. Great outing by Nova.

Victor Gandozi said...

Nice streak and 11-1 against the inferior nl so far this season. Keep it going.

bigbadwolf said...

Lost in all of todays hoopla, Soriano closed the game with 3 up 3 down save.

Patricia Piper said...

I see our no name anonymous stat fraud offers a challenge, then grabs his ankles, and ducks for cover.

bigbadwolf said...

Remember fans, no team is as good as when they are playing hot as fire. CC on tap for tonight in NY.

Frank Sergi said...

One day one game one win at a time.

Giambino said...

Puck puck paaaaaaaw stat fraud.

Ben F said...

Go CC. Make it look easy.

Paul Hirschman said...

The win streak goes into double figures tonight.

Ted Lilly said...

Almost win time.

Stan the Man said...

Jeter delivers when it counts. Two out bases loaded single up the middle for the tying and go ahead runs. Yanks up 3-2 after five.

Linda Rice said...

Another brilliant defensive play by jeter, the best shortstop in the game. Bullet hit up the middle, Jeter makes full out dive to glove the ball and get the force out at second. Hi lite play.

Sean Smith said...

Tex with HR in 6th, Jeter with another 2 out rbi single in the 7th and the Yanks lead 5-2 after 7.

Eddie OConnor said...

CC has been pretty sharp and in control. Just finishes the eighth and is leading 5-2. no jinx, this makes 10 in a row with 3 more outs.

Stan the Man said...

CC throws complete game giving the bullpen the night off. Jeets the hitting star with 3 rbi's on 2 2 out clutch hits.

Tom Loughlin said...

That's 10 in a row and 20-4 over the last 24 games.

Deb F said...

Remember the choo choo.

johnsondc said...

We are killing the stat frauds with wins.

Quay Ho said...

Kuroda for the series tomorrow and the teams 11th straight. WINS

Deb F said...

Hiroki Kuroda goes for the teams 11th consecutive win tonight. Keep the train rolling guys. Choo choo.

Erica Nuyens said...

There is absolutely no doubt, the WIN METHOD blog, WIN METHOD, and the fans here are the best there is. Keep up the fantastic work. Love ya,

Victor Gandozi said...

Unfortunately with the Yankees playing the Braves and Mets again this week, the win streak most likely has to come to an end. It is very unlikely one team can beat two others 6 straight teams each. All good things must come to an end.

jimbo said...

2 hours till game time. LETS GO YANKEES

jimbo said...

Just another win, one more time.

jimbo said...

3-3 after 5.

Saul Irving said...

Yanks down 4-3 after 7. Two more shots.

Victor Bruno said...

We all knew it had to happen. the Yankees lost last night 4-3. close but no cigar, and a game we could have, should have won.

Patricia Piper said...

OK Hughesy get us back on track today.

Phil Jenkins said...

Good to have a quick turn around game after last nights loss. WIN today, and take the series.

Cory said...

Lets get the win.

Gene A said...

We are getting hammered. Down 6-2 in the sixth.

Cory said...

2 losses in a row. All around bad game today.

johnsondc said...

Afraud does it again. delivers for the opposing team. As the Yankees clawed their way back this afternoon Afraud dashed the teams hope with yet another double play grounder with the tying run at third base and a runner on at first. The score was 6-5 and a fly ball ties the game. but no, the fraud fails again and again, over and over.

Jorge Hernandez said...

Two losses in a row is not good. Day off today and three games with the Mets this weekend. We need to bounce back. Rotation, Pettitte, Nova, CC.

MomanRick said...

We better not take the Mets lightly, they are surely looking for revenge.

Gus Papa said...

Yep, it should be bang up weekend. the Mets scare me. They are playing very much WIN METHOD type of baseball.

Lee Askew said...

Andy Pettitte tonight to dazzle the Mets and get us a W.

YankeeMike said...

Break the slide Andy. Lets go Yankees.

Hector Lopez said...

We may have to play around some storms tonight.

RLA said...

One bad inning is all it takes to go down three straight. No clutch hitting.

Stan the Man said...

Man do we need a win tonight. One rotten inning last night. Bury the low life Mets.

Sharon/NC said...

We needed last nights win. It wasn't easy, but it counts.

RLA said...

Ibanez older than Afraud is a bettr clutch players and at a fraction of the cost, twice th;e player Afraud is.

johnsondc said...

Todays game could be a barn burner.

Zhaire said...

The Mets have certainly given a good account of themselves and are no pushovers. Dickey coming off of back to back one hitters.

Warren Hammond said...

One hour to the dreaded Sunday night espn game time.

Yankeeforever said...

Swisher tags Dickey for a 3 run blast and the Yankees lead 4-1 after 3.

Stan the Man said...

CC and Dickey flop. Both out of game as Mets claw their way back. 5-5 after six.

Bob Behan said...

Yankee bullpen 3 1/3 of no run ball. Yanks win 6-5.

Alex Antonius said...

Cano HR in 8th decides game. 6-5 Yankees.

Roger D said...

Robertson for the hold and Soriano for another save. Yanks win 6-5 and take 5 of 6 from a scrappy Met team.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Kuroda tonight against the Indians at the Stadium. Interleague play is finished for this year with the much superior American League again domination the far inferior national league.

Teena/Bronx said...

Five of six from the Mets in 2012. I guess everyone knows who the best team in NY is.

Mickey Morch said...

Kuroda goes tonight. Just keep winning. Only wins earn championships and signify the best players and teams.

Benny Pake said...

No let up after the Met series guys. Keep winning.

Mike Smith said...

Lets go Yankees. The future is looking good.

Anonymous said...

Get it done Hiroki. Get it done.

Frank Sergi said...

Get it done Hiroki, get it done.

Saul Irving said...

Cano first inning double drives in two as Yanks take a 2-0 first inning lead.

Steve said...

Dewayne Wise 2 run HR in 2nd gives the Yanks a 4-0 lead after 2.

Saul Irving said...

Back to back blasts by Cano and Swisher in the third make it 6-0 after 3.

Bert Jackson said...

This game is ours. A laugher for a change.

bigbadwolf said...

Yanks up 7-0 afte 5. Kuroda very sharp tonight. Jeter, the best defensive shortstop in baseball makes two spectacular defensive plays tonight.

Steve said...

YANKEES dominate the Cleveland Indians tonight as Hiroki Kuroda comes up with a very sharp one run effort. Rapada a 1,2,3 eights and Garcia a 1,2,3 ninth. Shortstop Derek Jeter makes two more spectacular defensive plays. Ho hum, just another win.

MomanRick said...

Just an all around nice game tonight. The bullpen gets break and things are still moving along very nicely.

William Mensom said...

Garcia was hitting 90 on his fastbll last night. When he does that he can be a very effective pitcher considering all the movement on his other pitches.

Hughes goes tonight and needs to come back with a good game.

Allie Singh said...

There is no stat in this world more important than wins and losses.....except in the minds of mind numbed stat frauds who know little to nothing.

Cory said...

We have another streak quietly going. Not so quiet now. Three straight going for four with Hughes tonight.

AAA said...

Do it Phil. Get the win. Bare down.

Yankeeforever said...

Lets go Yankees.

jimbo said...

Yanks jump out 3-0 after 2.

Steve said...

Yanks up 5-0 after 7. Hughes has been dazzling.

Gus Papa said...

Final 6-4 Yanks, but it wasn't close. Hughes 8 innings of magnificent pitching. Then Wade starts the 9th and gets rocked for 4 runs, allowing Soriano to get a 2 pitch save.

Giambino said...

Great game for Hughes and four in a row for the team. Pettitte for the sweep tomorrow.

Gary Long said...

So far so good against the Tribe. Now for the sweep from Andy Pettitte this afternoon.

NJYANKEE said...

Another sweep would be nice, but just taking each series guarantees the playoffs.

RLA said...

Lets sweep Andy and make it five in a row.

Linda Pardo said...

Yanks up 2-1 after four. Come on guys, win this.

Steve said...

4-3 Yanks after six. It ain't easy today.

Cory said...

We squeak by for five straight wins. Garcia gets the win, soriano a very weak save. Cano 2 and Chavez 3 RBIs to win the game.

will-i-am said...

Another sweeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppppppppp.

Tom Loughlin said...

Nice win for the series sweep.

CC on 15 DL with strained groin. Who will go in CCs spot?

Four game weekend series with the White Sox starts tomorrow.

WIN METHOD said...

Hey fans, I'm back. Will have a blog post shortly. A lot of good stuff. Adam Warren my special WIN METHOD selection a few years back is going to be called up and will likely make his first major league start shortly.

bigbadwolf said...

Pettitte cracks bone in ankle today on batted ball and is likely out 4 to 6 weeks. Warren will get a big shot at the big time.

William Mensom said...

All the injuries this year, the players lost for the season, very extended periods, the seriousness of the injuries and all of it is overcome by the depth, the quality, the pure greatness of the WIN METHOD player evaluation system. No stat frauds, it is not luck, it is the best man in baseball evaluation making WIN METHOD decisions that keeps the Yankees the best there is, rain or shine.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

You are so right William. WIN METHOD does know what it takes to win and he sure knows what he is doing with his draft selections and other signings.

Maurice Gaudeaux said...

Play one game at a time and win a few more than we lose consistently and we will be fine.

Erica Nuyens said...

Glad you are back WIN METHOD. First place and playing well despite all the injuries. Love ya

Kev Mac90 said...

We are down to or up to Nova, Hughes, Kuroda as our three top starters right now. Any team in baseball would die to have these three starters on their team.

Domenic said...

Nova tonight. Lets get number six guys.

Erica Nuyens said...

A great day for celebrating the old with the new. love ya WIN METHOD

NJYANKEE said...

Seven game road trip. I can live with 4-3. Would love 5-2 or better.

NJYANKEE said...

We are nearing the end of a 20 game run without a day off. Played 18 with 2 to go and are 11-7, yet we are not doing what needs to be done and are not really looking good.

Carl Hooks said...

Mo said he is returning for the 2013 season. That is great.

YankeeMike said...

Rivera did return and this will be his final year. Hopefully it will be a big year with all the trimmings.
