WIN METHOD - player evaluation dominance

Coming back from a whirlwind five weeks on the road.  Started with the YANKEE western swing in late May to Oakland to Anaheim to Detroit.  Interviews, interviews, interviews, the draft, and finally the College World Series.

We got everything we wanted out of this years draft.  Picking almost last each year and still coming through with some of the best baseball talent is a feather in the cap of the WIN METHOD player evaluation system.  The YANKEES since the inception and use of the WIN METHOD have been baseballs winning-est team with the most playoffs, pennants, and World Championships than any other team in baseball.  Factually, no other team comes even close.

How about this years team.  Riddled with crippling injuries, and many other lesser injuries, this team has performed admirably.  First place, with player after player stepping up and playing WIN METHOD baseball.  Winning as a team.   WINS is all that counts.

How many of you remember my special WIN METHOD selection back in 2009 of Adam Warren and his rise through the ranks?  Well, Adam is being called up by the YANKEES and will start Friday nights game in the Stadium against the Chicago White Sox.   Good luck, Adam.  Remember it's all about the WIN METHOD.

If any of you want a good laugh, you can go to several of the baseball talk forums.  Go to the the YANKEE threads and you will see just what is meant by the dumbing down of America.    Most, not all, but most posters know little to nothing about baseball, they get mired in mind numbing meaningless, worthless individual stats and when confronted whine and cry like  immature childlike fools.   The worst is, the moderators are the biggest and dumbest culprits.  When threatened and provided facts and collaborating sites they immediately demean the poster and the other valid sites.  All you can do is laugh at these brain dead losers.   These guys are in their comfort zone when they are supported by their clique of mental delinquents, but know if they come here to debate anything they will get buried by an avalanche of common sense and facts from the smartest fans in the baseball world, WIN METHOD fans.  They have no game and what game they have is losing and claiming they are the best.

In the second half of this season we will have several quality players coming back and this team will get better and better.  All the while, the youngsters picked over the last few years develop and get ripe until they are needed and ready to be picked and promoted.

Welcome back. Lets go Yankees.

NJYANKEE said...

Get this series started out right Ivan with a win. Lineup, our pitchers need you guys to step up. Lets roll.

Erica Nuyens said...

Great post WIN METHOD, but I have come to expect that. Love ya

Felix Lopez said...

Keep on winning guys, it makes the wounded feel good.

Yankeeforever said...

Win game one. It makes life easier. Do it Ivan. Lead the way Cap.

johnsondc said...

Nice to have you back WIN METHOD. Everything going great here. Just wins and winning.

Steve said...

No score after two. Hey! WIN METHOD.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks go up 2-1 after 5 on back to back RBI doubles from Afraud and Cano.

Stan the Man said...

Teixeira homers for an insurance run in the 8th giving the Yanks a 3-1 lead.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Tex with a Ballantine blast for a 3-1 lead after 8.

Steve said...

Rapad and Robertson give the game away in the 9th. Rapada with an error on a comeback double play ball and then Robertson surrenders a three run home run.

Warren Hammond said...

What a downer as the pen blows the game in the 9th.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

One conciliation, which is really no way to look at things, but the O's, Rays, and Jays all lost also tonight.
We could have stretched the gap a full game on each.

AAA said...

One heck of a sorrowful loss.

Sharon/NC said...

Being down two starters, you can't give away any games. Just more pressure on Warren tomorrow. Pressure he doesn't need. But he is WIN METHOD.

Victor Bruno said...

I guess I am addicted. I can't sleep and keep seeing Rapada throwing the ball wildly into centerfield.

Vinnie Ferrero said...

Everyone make an error once in awhile. This one just cost us dearly. Robertson made a good pitch, the hitter did better and hit it out. that's baseball. It all would have been moot if the lineup scored some runs instead of playing dead to Axelrods junk.

Bert Jackson said...

Sure is a tough spot for a rookie pitcher making his first start. We could be down 2 games in a 4 game series.

WIN METHOD said...

I would be going to New York for Warrens debut game tonight, but I just need to kick back and relax. Five hectic weeks in hotels and traveling and interviewing constantly takes its toll. Keep us in the game Adam.

Paul Jekovic said...

Take it easy man, you have done more than anyone for the late Mr.S. and the Yankees.

Erica Nuyens said...

Yes, relax WIN METHOD. Love ya

Teena/Bronx said...

We're rooting for you Adam.

Tom Loughlin said...

Throw strikes Warren, just throw strikes. Give the kid some hit support guys. Wake up Arod.

YankeeMike said...

A win tonight in CCs rotation spot would be big. Lets do it. Lets go Yankees.

Saul Irving said...

Lets make this easy. Everybody hits and Warren pitches good enough to win.

Steve said...

The Yankees give Warren four first inning runs and he promptly gives them all back and then some. Goes 2 1/3. Well, he got his feet wet. Phelps now in to hopefully stop the bleeding.

Gus Papa said...

Yanks take Warren off the hook with 2 game tying runs in the 4th. 6-6 after four. Phelps still in there.

Victor Gandozi said...

Yanks down 8-6 after 6 and Wade comes in and allows 2 runs instantly. Hose up 10-6 and batting in the 7th.

Roger D said...

Warren got rocked. We got doubled up losing 14-7. Now we can get back to business and even this series with a win today and tomorrow.

Xman James said...

If you lose you might as well get beat up. Lets respond with a couple of wins right back and send the Sox packing.

Gus Papa said...

A couple of losses can be a good wake up call. No one is giving us anything, we have to earn it and take it.

will-i-am said...

After bashing Yankee pitching for 19 hits last night, the White Sox will have a hard time facing Hiroki Kuroda this afternoon.

Oliver Moore said...

After all those hits and runs the Chitowners should be tired. Take them down Hiroki.

evan donohue said...

Return the trouncing and win the next two. LETS GO YANKEES....LETS GO YANKEES

Cory said...

1-0 Yankees after 1 on a Grandygram.

Steve said...

2-0 Yankees after four.

Lon Chechov said...

Kuroda has been sharp again.

will-i-am said...

I guess the Sox bats are worn out from yesterday.

Alex Antonius said...

Wise blast makes it 3-0 after five.

Mickey Morch said...

A Canote makes it 4-0 in the bottom of the 6th.

Steve said...

Kuroda goes 7 brilliant innings. No runs 3 hits 11 Ks. 4-0 Yanks after 7.

Linda Rice said...

Very nice win today after the past two debacles.

William Mensom said...

WIN METHOD has always been right and the stat fans have always been wrong. Baseball is only about WINS.

Warren Hammond said...

After todays game going to take the wife out for a movie and chinese food.

Karl K said...

Kuroda has done very well for us and has been a quality starter pretty consistently.

WIN METHOD said...

Get up early WIN METHOD fans who have the YES network. Old Timers Day and many old friends.

Quay Ho said...

Hughes tomorrow to keep on track with a win.

Laura Koehler said...

Old Timers Day at the Stadium today. Much fun and memories of being the best the most. Lets go Yankees.

Bert Jackson said...

Love OTD and would love to beat the Sox today. Do it again Phil.

bigbadwolf said...

As things now stand, we can't be caught unless we lose. That is why only wins count, all other stats means squat.

Giambino said...

After the celebration game we play for a real win and then head into the last week before the All Star Game break.

William Mensom said...

As I watch and celebrate the intelligent people who know baseball acknowledge Championships, wins, and winning at the Yankee Old Timers day, it saddens me to think about he losers of lifes' lottery, the stat frauds who can only drown in stupidity, losses, losing, and excuses of ifs ands and buts.

johnsondc said...

I don't think you ever posted anything that wasn't right bill. I agree.

Allie Singh said...

Right on William. Oldster game has been fun. Just need a win in the real game.

Steve said...

YES!! Afraud is completely out of the lineup. We roll.

Linda Rice said...

Hughes allows two first inning runs. Now it's our turn.

Saul Irving said...

After loading the bases with no one out, the Yanks fail to score. down 2-0 afte one.

Oliver Moore said...

Two run blast by Chavez ties it 2-2 after two. Sure nice not having Afraud in the lineup.

Steve said...

Cano two run blast gives Yankees 4-2 lead after 3.

will-i-am said...

Afraud who? No loss whatsoever.

Lou Lis said...

After the first inning Hughes has been spot on and is in total control.

Alex Antonius said...

Still holding a 4-2 lead after six. Keep on chugging Phil.

Steve said...

Hughes complete 8 innings of 2 run ball, only allowing the 2 first inning runs. Only need the bullpen for the 9th.

NJYANKEE said...

Another dominating effort and win from Phil Hughes.

Chester A said...

Soriano does get another save.

Victor Gandozi said...

5-2 on the home stand. On to Tampa for 3 and then 4 in Boston on the weekend before the All Star break. Garcia, Nova, Phelps for the 3 in Tampa. Kuroda, Hughes, Garcia, Nova in Boston should be the likely rotation.

Yankeeforever said...

I would think Garcia start in Boston may be dependent on his start in Tampa.

Nate Berkus said...

It would sure help and even be nice if the bats carried the pitching staff this week.

Warren Hammond said...

At best if we can get five good innings from Garcia it would be great. At least the bullpen is rested and ready.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Garcia has been hitting 90 mph in his relief stints. That may be the difference in his effectiveness.

Phil Jenkins said...

Garcia is a competitor, he will give his all, but will it be good enough?

Anonymous said...

Are you mentally ill?

Cory said...

Be the man Freddy.

Jonas Slaught said...

So far five good innings out of Garcia. 2-1 Yanks after five.

Kornejo said...

Girardi may try to get six from Freddy, then it has to go to the bullpen. We are pounding Moore but not scoring any runs.

Kornejo said...

Girardi may try to get six from Freddy, then it has to go to the bullpen. We are pounding Moore but not scoring any runs.

Tom Loughlin said...

Garcia gives up the tying HR in the 6th and is taken out after 5 1/3. We need a few runs and good pitching from the bullpen to win this.

Yankeeforever said...

Yanks take 3-2 lead in top of 7th and then Robertson gives it away in the bottom of the 7th. Rays up 4-3 after 7.

Luke Key said...

We lose it 4-3. Nova to get us even tomorrow. Arod has nothing left after his steroid use. He nailed a pitch to the warning track. In his cheating days the ball would have been far into the seats.

Bob Behan said...

We haven't won a game in Tampa in a year.

Alex Antonius said...

Can't blame last nights loss on Garcia. He earned another start as Pettittes replacement.

Ken Sheperd said...

This is a game for Nova. He excels and dominates and we even the series.

Domenic said...

Even if we lose every game that CC and Pettitte would have started, which we won't, and we win every game that Nova, Hughes, and Kuroda start, which we won't, we would still be playing .600 ball.

johnsondc said...

I went to several baseball forum Yankee sites and the only logic and breath of fresh air on any of them are the WIN METHOD posts. the stat frauds step all over each other trying to bad mouth the WIN METHOD and defend their position of losing is better than winning.

Phil Jenkins said...

The frauds are desperate. They get embarrassed when confronted with WIN METHOD logic. So the demean and attack in the most nasty ways.

Linda Rice said...

Win another Ivan. Get some runs guys.

YankeeMike said...

We want this game, just in case.

RLA said...

You are the man Ivan. WINS

will-i-am said...

Game time.

Stan the Man said...

Afraud is still the black hole of the lineup as Yanks score two first inning runs.

Kornejo said...

2-0 Yanks after 2.

Steve said...

Wise with dinger in the third, then Nova allows three runs in the bottom of the third. 3-3.

Steve said...

Afraud is a disaster. Yanks down 5-4 after four. Afraud is a disaster.

Stan the Man said...

Nova was not his best, but he did not deserve to lose tonight. Poor base running and poor defense combined Afrauds total uselessness at the plate and on the field make for a 7-4 loss.

Greg Petroski said...

Wow, we could get swept again in Tampa. Phelps to the rescue?

Giambino said...

We single handedly keep the Rays alive.

Sharon/NC said...

Happy 4th of July everyone and lets celebrate with a Yankee doodle dandy WIN.

Steve said...

SABR is useless, I follow the WIN METHOD.

http://winmethod.blogspot.com/


The above was posted on a sabr oriented forum.

Harry Stavris said...

Today we celebrate America. And hopefully a Yankee win.

Quay Ho said...

Happy fourth Yankee fans. May God bless America. Lets go Yankees.

Carl Hooks said...

Happy 4th. Fireworks this afternoon followed by fireworks tonight.

William Mensom said...

Enjoy the 4th. Enjoy your cookouts. Enjoy your family and friends.

Paul Hirschman said...

Get the win, avoid th sweep. Happy July 4th.

Teena/Bronx said...

Eat drink and be merry as we celebrate our great nation. Enjoy all.

YankeeMike said...

Lets go guys, lets win this one.

Cory said...

Enjoy the day and the fireworks. And hopefully a win.

Phil Jenkins said...

Win it for the good of America. Go Yankees.

Sean Smith said...

No runs no hits no errors for either team after three.

Domenic said...

Rays up 1-0 after five.

Stan the Man said...

Rays with 2 in 7th take 3-1 lead. Yanks come back with 3 in the 8th for a 4-3 lead. Rays batting in the 8th.

Stan the Man said...

Robertson puts down the Rays in the 8th. 4-3 Yankees after 8. Soriano for the 9th?

Stan the Man said...

Soriano gets the Rays 3 up 3 down for the Yankee win and a save. Robertson gets a hold.

Jed,NJ said...

Happy 4th, the Yankees wwwwiiiiinnnn.

Deb F said...

Great four innings from Phelps. Jeter with three hits. And a win we needed to avoid another sweep.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Party time. Fireworks later. The Yankees win.

Gus Papa said...

The win just makes the day a bit nicer and celebratory. Tough win.

AAA said...

Lest we forget. Kyle Farnsworth deserves a big thank you.

Jack Gordon said...

Fireworks in half an hour here. Off day tomorrow and on to Boston for four with the sux. Happy 4th everyone.

Gary Long said...

Hope everyone had a nice holiday. the win was sure nice.

bigbadwolf said...

Lost 2 of 3 in Tampa but still holding a decent lead. WINS Make the playoffs, nothing else matters.

Erica Johnston said...

A summer day without a Yankee game is a wasted day.

evan donohue said...

Can't argue that Erica.

Tom Loughlin said...

Kuroda, Hughes, Garcia, Nova for the four games. And a rest and ready pen.

Dan Evans said...

$ game in 3 days with the bosux. 4 win is great. 3 wins is fine. 2 wins is OK. 1 win is not good. 0 wins is rotten.

Hank B said...

I love winning the first game of a series and then play from ahead. Especially on the road. Puts more pressure on the opposition.

YankeeMike said...

Do it again Kuroda.

Deb F said...

Get us the first win tonight Hiroki. Lets get some runs guys. Pound the wall.

Bob Behan said...

Game time Lets go Yankees. Lets roll.

Chester A said...

First inning, Yanks score five, then Kuroda promptly gives up five as both team bat around.

Zhaire said...

5-5 after 1. Yes 5-5.

Steve said...

6-6 after 2. It looks like batting practice.

Frank Sergi said...

Yanks down 7=6 after 5.

Mark D said...

Yankees score 4 in the 7th and take a 10-8 lead after 7. If Kuroda had anything this game would be locked up.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks up 10-8 after 7. Robertson gets last out in the 7th with a K with 2 men on.

johnsondc said...

10-8 Yanks after 8. Soriano gets last out in the 8th and will try for a 4 out save.

AAA said...

10-8 win. Yes!

Stan the Man said...

Soriano with 3 up 3 down in the 9th for another save and a 10-8 Yankee win.

Maurice Gaudeaux said...

10-8 Yanks. Game one is ours.

Oliver Moore said...

Good game, but should have been an easy win. But a win.

bigbadwolf said...

Good win as the lineup delivered when our starter didn't. A team game where only wins matter.

Linda Pardo said...

Day night double header today. Lets take two.

Paul Jekovic said...

If the lineup does what it did last night, we will be in good shape this weekend.

Giambino said...

Lets get off on the right foot.

RLA said...

Freddy Garcia is starting this afternoons game. He was given the choice by manager Joe Girardi and Garcia said he would rather pitch in the heat. If Freddy can give us five good innings it would be great, any more would be icing on the cake. Everybody hits. Lets go Yankees.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Jeter leads another game off with a hit and ignites another big inning for the Yankees. Yanks score four in the first. Garcia shuts down the sux in the first and the Yanks lead 4-0 after one.

Stan the Man said...

We have two men picked off first base in the top of the third killing a possible rally, but still lead 4-0 after four. Garcia looking good.

YankeeMike said...

Yankee bats are alive and the hills are alive with the sound of runs. Back to back homers for the 2nd time in the game give the Yankees a 6-0 lead after 3 1/2.

bigbadwolf said...

We have five innings of quality work from Garcia and lead 6-1 after five.

Deb F said...

Garcia has now given us six innings of one run pitching. Beautiful Freddy.

Tony Gigante said...

Garcia is pulled after giving up a 2 out hit in the 7th. Eppley gets the final out. 6 2/3 of spectacular bal from Freddy. He will earn the win for himself and the team.

Ann Gallagher/PA said...

6-1 Yanks with the bosux last at bats coming up. Going to be a very very nice win.

Tomas Velez said...

6-1 final as Qualls mops up the ninth. Win guarantees a series split, but we want it all now. Hughes goes in tonights game with a well rested bullpen behind him.

Eugene D said...

A very nice win. Two games in the bank. Jeter with 8 hits in last 3 games to lead the way for the lineup.

NJYANKEE said...

Good win, lets keep it going. Two more wins and we could bury the sux before the All Star game.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

I would love to sweep the sux.

will-i-am said...

Make it happen Phil. Tame the 'big puppy'.

Carl Hooks said...

Clinch the series tonight. Everybody hits.

Sean Smith said...

We are starting to slide. Three first inning runs tonight. Yanks up 3-0 after one.

Steve said...

sux get one back. 3-1 Yanks after 4.

Ken Sheperd said...

sux keep chipping away. 3-2 Yanks after 5.

Stan the Man said...

Hughes getting bad break and poor defense leaves game with Yanks losing 5-3 after six.

Steve said...

Andruw Jones gets one back for the Yanks with his third home run of the day. 5-4 sux up coming to bat in the 7th.

Warren Hammond said...

Wade in the 7th crashes and burns again. We will need several runs in the 8th and 9th to pull this one out.

jimbo said...

Yanks down 9-4 after 7. We may have seen the last of Wade in a Yankee uniform.

Gus Papa said...

We played one heck of a rotten game last night. Hughes was not his best, the defense was rotten, and the offense not much better. I guess you have to have a stinker every once in a while.

Victor Gandozi said...

Sadly we have the 8PM espn game again tonight. The price you must pay for being the best.

Tom Loughlin said...

Some facts. We are 3-3 on this road trip with 1 more game to play. If we lose tonight we would still be @ 6 games in front at the all star break and we will have played even baseball with 2 of our top rivals killing a week of the season without them gaining. If we win tonight we would be 4-3 on the trip, in better shape, and at minimum killed that same week of the season while maintaining a soled lead. About .500 ball on the road against your main rivals usually means you win the pennant.

Pete H said...

This is a good game to win and take the sux series 3 games to 1.

Nate Berkus said...

Come on Ivan, lets go home with a win.

Erica Johnston said...

Lets get ready for our last game for a few days. Let it be a win. Lets go Yankees.

Steve said...

*****NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH***** Jeter drops a popup for an error giving the sux a run. He also has two hits in his first two at bats. Yanks up 3-1 after two.

YankeeMike said...

3-2 Yanks after 4. The sux don't lie down, nor should they.

Domenic said...

5-2 Yankees after five.

Stan the Man said...

Still 5-2 after six. Jeter with his third hit.

Steve said...

Andruw Jones with his 4th home run in 2 days extends the Yankee lead to 7-2 in the 7th.

Steve said...

7-2 Yanks after 7.

Steve said...

7-3 after 8 as Robertson who did not look sharp allows a run and was hit reasonably hard.

Carl Hooks said...

If Soriano hold the lead in the ninth we will have take 3 of 4 from the sux and will hold a 7 game lead at the All Star break.

Benny Pake said...

Yes I am still up and I will be to work on time in the morning. Another four hour game and Soriano is in to close out the ninth in a non save situation.

Steve said...

It's over, we win. No baseball for a few days.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeee Yankeeeeeees winnnnnnnnnnn.

Allie Singh said...

Nice lead to have at the mid season break. Plus we got guys coming back in the second half.

YankeeMike said...

Enjoy the break people. I need a rest.

Erica Nuyens said...

Peace and quiet and a seven game lead. Love it and love ya WIN METHOD.

Linda Pardo said...

Everyone get some r & r. Then come back strong.

Phil Jenkins said...

Everything use beautiful with a sven game lead.

Jack Gordon said...

It has been a good first half of the season. Close it out with a bang.

Jorge Hernandez said...

I got to bed early last night without a Yankee game.

Eddie OConnor said...

Hey stat frauds, Where are you, gutless wonders.

Sharon/NC said...

Just to keep everyone on top of things. LETS GO YANKEES

Quay o said...

Yankee all stars don't get hurt.

Gus Papa said...

Be ready whan you come back guys. Bear down and win.

Teena/Bronx said...

Boy is it peaceful around here without baseball action.

Vinnie Ferrero said...

Just one more day and back into action.

johnsondc said...

Last day off, and then having the best record in baseball will make the target on our back that much bigger.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

I think we play 13 straight games when we come back including a western swing without a day off.

Ann Gallagher/PA said...

Win more games than we lose and we should be in good shape.

Bev F said...

Kuroda is slated to start tomorrows game against the Angels.

Victor Gandozi said...

Joba and Gardner may both be back this month.
