WIN METHOD...2012-2013 winter


It has been a long time WIN METHOD fans since my last post.  It was a tough ending to the 2012 season.  None the less a pretty successful season.  The YANKEES had the best record in the American league.  Made the playoffs, advanced through the first round and then kaboom, the season was over when Derek Jeter went down with a broken ankle in the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers.   I have been overwhelmingly busy for the past months.  Attended every game since August.  An extraordinary amount of interviews since the YANKEE season ended.  There is rumor of several deals, acquisitions, and players being let go.   In reality, the YANKEES are the best team in the American League East right now, and with a little tinkering and the right moves could be even better in 2013.  As many of you WIN METHOD fans know and have suggested, the elimination of Alex Rodriguez from the roster would go a long way in making the 2013 YANKEES stronger.  However, that may not be as easy as we would like.  We can only hope, and as always we we play the hand we are dealt.  With CC Sabathia and Derek Jeter having recent surgery, lets hope both are ready to start the season.   The YANKEE pitching is strong front and back.   The bats are still there, while that may change to some degree, the lineup should be strong.  If Rodriguez remains a YANKEE, we can only hope he will be dropped significantly in the lineup, and at best gone completely.   Nick Swisher and Rafael Soriano are likely to both be gone, but losing neither will hurt the team.   One of the YANKEES elite minor league-rs will make an impact in 2013 and help the team.   The YANKEE organization is looking at several acquisitions, but it takes two to make a deal, and some deals are better off not made if too much mast be given away.  Some of the rumored players the YANKEES are supposedly looking at have no chance of being YANKEES because they are not WIN METHOD.   So don't worry fans, there will not be any more Afraud mistakes.   



Last month I also was lucky enough to celebrate my 70th birthday with my wife, two sons, two daughters, two daughter-in-laws, and three grand children.  The celebration was done in a YANKEE baseball theme and motif and was an exceptional surprise.  I am a very lucky man.  Above is a picture of the apropos cake.   WIN METHOD marches on.

I will try to keep you all abreast of any doings over the coming winter and I will again be attending the winter meetings.  There is only so much I can tell you without jeopardizing possible maneuvers by the powers that be.   The Steinbrenner sons have appeared to see the WIN METHOD light and things may get better for the YANKEES in 2013.   After all decisions have been made, it is still the guys on the field who make things happen, and if those guys play WIN METHOD baseball, and play for the team to win, all will go well in 2013.  Maybe we got all the injuries out of our system in 2012.

Thank you all for the support, comments, and posts.  You WIN METHOD fans are the most knowledgeable fans in baseball and know that individual stats do not determine the best.  Only WINS and winning can do that.

Long overdo WIN METHOD. Lets go YANKEES.

Cory said...

Afraud is a cancer and must be cut out.

Linda Pardo said...

Nice cake.

William Mensom said...

Congratulations to the WIN METHOD and joek, the best there is in baseball talent evaluation.

Erica Nuyens said...

It's been to long WIN METH:OD. Happy BD and nice to have you back. Love ya,

Giambino said...

Time for another World Series win WIN METHOD.

Victor Gandozi said...

I see Cano is asking for 10 years and big bucks. If he doesn't sign for a shorter period and for reasonable dollars, I say let him go after 2013. If he doesn't want to be a Yankee, good riddance.

RLA said...

A small good deal is better than a bad big one.

Tom Loughlin said...

Get it done WIN METHOD.

Gus Papa said...

WIN METHOD has ruled the baseball world for the past two decades.

Cory said...

Only pay what is reasonable. Give someone 10 years and big money and they have no incentive. Let them play elsewhere.

Deb F said...

The hills are alive with the sounds of WIN METHOD.

will-i-am said...

Is Afraud gone yet?

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

i always get a laugh from the fans who spew their individual stats at each other. Wins and winning will always determine the best, whether the stat frauds like it or not.

Fred Slube said...

We will be fine 1n 13. One way or another.

Cory said...

We would be finer without Afraud.

Sharon/NC said...

Happy Thanksgiving Yankee fans.

WIN METHOD said...

Kuroda signed for one year. One down. Great job by YANKEE purse string controllers.

Victor Grandozi said...

Kuroda is a solid one year sign. Screw the union, no one should be signed for more than a max of two years, ever.

RLA said...

Kuroda is reliable and steady. I like keeping him for another year.

Deb F said...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Al Ashton said...

Turkey day. Have a good one.

bigbadwolf said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Cory said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Zhaire said...

My best to Yankee fans. Enjoy the day.

YankeeMike said...

Happy Thanksgiving WIN METHOD fans.

Eddie OConnor said...

Happy turkey day all.

Frank Sergi said...

Great day to all.

Gus Papa said...

From 50th street viewing the parade.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Chen Cho said...

Great day to all.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

Have a nice Thanksgiving Yankee fans.

Erica Nuyens said...

Gobble gobble WIN METHOD, Love ya,

Victor Grandozi said...

My best to everyone.

will-i-am said...

Isn't Thanksgiving the same as statfraud day. Both are turkeys.

johnsondc said...

Better late than never. Hope everyone had a good day. 28 in 13.

NJYANKEE said...

Got my 60inch HDTV this AM. Perfect for Yankee watching.

Saul Irving said...

Almost time for the winter meetings. Kuroda signed, next Ichiro?

Danny Queens said...

Arod sucks.

Alex Antonius said...

Ichiros ability to get on base and his speed once on base to make things happen is a great asset. His defense is solid. Would be a fine sign for a year.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Cory said...

I definately think Ichiro wants to play for the Yankees next year.

jimbo said...

Winter meetings around the corner.

WIN METHOD said...

Austin Romaine will get a very big look this spring.

Al Ashton said...

It would be nice for one of our youngsters to make a splash.

Linda Rice said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Victor Tinzik said...

Great cake WIN METHOD.

WIN METHOD said...

Ichiro will sign with YANKEES for 2013.

Teena/ bronx said...

Ichiro back would be great WIN METHOD.

Bert Jackson said...

I like Ichiro coming back. He plays WIN METHOD baseball.

Levi James said...

Ichiros bat, speed and defense will be a big help over an entire season.

Victor Gandozi said...

A Gardner, Granderson, Ichiro outfield would be exceptional.

Paul Jekovic said...

Nice heads up WIN METHOD on Ichiro.

will-i-am said...

Ichiro is a good keep.

Lou Lis said...

Sign them one at a time and win it all in 13.

Cory said...

Please trade Afraud.

WIN METHOD said...

Pettitte/YANKEE deal for 2013 imminent.

bigbadwolf said...

Getting Andy back is great. Things are slowing coming together for next year. I agree with many here, Afraud will be the draw back.

Teena/Bronx said...

I'm glad Andy is coming back. He is gritty and tough and puts in an all out effort each time he comes to the mound.

AAA said...

Again, WIN METHOD is first to know.

George W said...

As someone said earlier. One good siging at a time.

Warren Hammond said...

Pettitte signed this afternoon. WIN METHOD first again.

Quay Ho said...

WIN METHOD leads the pack.

Zhaire said...

I think the Yankees will obtain at least one significant addition to the team over the winter.

Victor Tinzik said...

Things are coming together and they are coming together quietly.

Vanessa Cates said...

2013 is going to be a magic year for the Yankees.

Erica Nuyens said...

You are still #1 WIN METHOD. Love ya,

Herb Lester said...

If we could only eliminate the black hole at third baseb.

Frank Sergi said...

Just plug the hole at third base and all will be fine.

Tom Loughlin said...

I guess Mo signs next.

Linda Pardo said...

That would make the threesome of Curly, Larry, and Mo. Pettitte, Jeter, and Rivera.

William Mensom said...

Russell Martin signed with the Pirates. This is where WIN METHOD earns his money. It is either Romaine or someone WIN METHOD talked to.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Maybe Raomaine will be told the job is yours. I would love to go that route and not spend a lot on someone else.

Deb F said...

I love for Romaine to be given a full out shot at catcher.

AAA said...

I also would go with Romaine.

Kevin Mac said...

Wonderful info here.

Yankeeforever said...

If only Afraud could go.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

There was a 'fat' picture in the NY Post the other day. Just for the purpose of truth, it was touched up to create a lie. Wow, from politics to sports now from the despicable fourth estate.

Allie Singh said...

Jeter is probably in the the top 1 or 2% of in shape baseball players.

Karl R said...

Jetes iw the least of Yankee concerns. He is the best and always ready.

Lee Askew said...

The winter meetings begin. Lets see what happens for the Yankees.

johnsondc said...

Let the meetings begin. Go get them WIN METHOD.

will-i-am said...

What, no deals yet>

Deb F said...

Great Yankee news. Afraud needs hip surgery. Could be out for first few months of season. My question, the jerk just found out? or did he do something stupid?

Fred Slube said...

Now there is no way to dump his sorry you know what.

Tony Gigante said...

Down goes Arod. He's toast. Steroids do that.

Gus Papa said...

Give some kids a shot. They can't be as useless as Afraud.

Linda Rice said...

Deb, he probably did something stupid and is trying to use it as why he was so bad.

Carl Hooks said...

Jeter says he will definitely be at short for the start of the season. Captain Derek rules.

Chen Cho said...

Afraud out makes for a good 2013.

Teena/Bronx said...

The sportswriters are spouting gloom and doom for the Yankees. Good thing they know nothing.

Gabe Hooks said...

No big news today yet.

Ted Lilly said...

Rumors are swirling regarding the Yankees.

RLA said...

The Yankees have Afrauds contract insured. Let him never come back.

Zhaire said...

How many players can you say that their loss is good for the team. Bye Afraud.

johnsondc said...

We will find a way to overcome.

YankeeMike said...

Chavez no longer a Yankee.

Lou Lis said...

Yankees offered Youklis one year 12M deal. Better than Afraud.

Tony Gigante said...

Youklis would be interesting. At least he wouldn't be a black hole in the lineup.

Patricia Piper said...

Youk and Joba on the same team. How the world turns.

Al Ashton said...

Will Youklis accept?

Yankeeforever said...

Nothing happening so far. A lot of talk no action.

Gene A said...

I think Youklis may take the one year deal. He is clutch.

Walt Drinnon said...

No news today.

Alex Antonius said...

I think something will happen trade wise.

William Mensom said...

Every once in awhile to amuse myself I go read some of the baseball forums. Now I see where they get the "dumbing down of America" expression from.

Laura Kohler said...

Yes or no Youklis.

Victor Gandozi said...

Assuming certain signings, how about 1.Jeter ss 2.Granderson cf 3.Youklis 3b 4.Cano 2b 5.Texieria 1b 6.Nunez dh 7.Ichiro rf 8.Romaine c 9.Gardner lf. Overwhelming defense at all positions. Very good speed mixed throughout the lineup. Enough HR power? Who knows. A big trade can change all.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Interesting Victor, not bad if there are no deals and we sign the unsigned parts.

will-i-am said...

As long as the black hole Afraud is not in the lineup, I'll go with it.

Giambino said...

Last I heard, Youk was offered two years by the Indians for less yearly dollars and that Youk rather go with the Yankees, a contender.

Domenic said...

Some are saying Yankees interested in Rangers Hamilton. The Yankees don't need another loser in lifes lottery.

RLA said...

Youklis has always bee better than Arod. Offensively and defensively.

Victor Tinzik said...

Yes to Ichiro and Youkilis, no to Hamilton, if it were up to me.

bigbadwolf said...

I say Youk says yes to the Yankees tomorrow.

Chen Cho said...

The only problem with an outfield of Gardner, Granderson, and Ichiro is they are all left handed bats.

Eddie OConnor said...

WIN METHOD posted on 11/25 that Ichiro will sign with Yankees. That will come to fruition this week?

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

We haven't had a stat fraud post here in a long while.

will-i-am said...

looks like nothing today.

johnsondc said...

The stat frauds are afraid to post here. High IQ's here. So they stick to low IQ forums and play with themselves.

Teena/Bronx said...

Still waiting on Youkilis and Ichiro.

jimbo said...

Youkilis set to sign with Yanks pending physical.

YankeeMike said...

Nice to have Youk. Better defense and a better bat WHEN it counts.

Lou Lis said...

We had the most wins in the AL last year and we are getting better for 2013. Ichiro for the entire season and Youkilis for the entire season and no Arod.

AAA said...

I'm glad Youkilis wanted to be a Yankee.

Domenic said...

Love what we have done so far. the best fell in our lap with Afraud out.

Erica Johnston said...

Victor G. Looks like you may have listed the starting lineup. Good call.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Baseball will be back before you know it. Merry Christmas Yankee fans. I will be gone until next year.

Gus Papa said...

The one year deal are great for the Yankees. They can get out from under each year, or extend whom they want for another year if both sides agree. They can also plug in any of their kiddie corps when the time arrives.

William Mensom said...

Take care sid. Will call you next year.

WIN METHOD said...

I have been having a debate with some stat frauds on one of their dismal sites. I wanted to share with you WIN METHOD fans my final post there.


""""LOL. You are only mainstream in your own mind. The WIN METHOD has millions of supporters from all over the world. That has been factually documented by GOOGLE. WIN METHOD fans have the common sense to understand that winning and only winning determine the best players. You are unable to define eras, thus illustrating that you have little comprehension of time spans. You try to compare players over vast eras and say one may be better than the other. Over the decades of baseball, who was allowed to play the game has change, equipment has changed, fields have changed, and so on. There is no way any legitimate person can tell if a player in 1920 was better that a player in 2010. Only a fool would try to do so or a fraud. That is exactly why the WIN METHOD, the greatest player evaluation tool in the world, will always state that the biggest winners in each era are the the best players in their era. I love the way you say "advanced stats like WAR". All you pose is advanced garbage at the lowest level. I'll stick with the most knowledgeable baseball fans in the world. WIN METHOD fans.""""

johnsondc said...

Great stuff WIN METHOD.

Cory said...

Good vibes for 2013. No big injuries.

Zhaire said...

I am always amazed how stat users don not consider winning as determining the best.

Deb F said...

Merry Christmas sid.

Chen Cho said...

The biggest proof of WIN METHOD is a player turning down more money to play for you. Go Ichiro go.

Billy Tedder said...

How does a stat fraud respond when proven wrong time after time?.....they blame something or someone else.

Alex Antonius said...

I still think a trade is going to happen. I said so 12/8 and I still think so.

bigbadwolf said...

Ichiro officially signed a 2 year deal with the Yankees today. WIN METHOD said Ichiro was going to sign with the Yankees on 11/25. Again WIN METHOD knows before everyone else.

YankeeMike said...

Bingo Billy.

Alex, if a trade is made it better be a good one.

Seth Gooden said...

New here! Great blog.

bigbadwolf said...

Welcome Seth. You are now at the site with the most knowledgable baseball fans.

Warren Hammond said...

Solid lineup on the horizon. Catcher is up for grabs for Romaine.

Gabe Hooks said...

i wish the Yanks go with what they got right now for 2013. Afraud alone being gone makes the team better.

Ted Lilly said...

Happy Holidays everyoone.

Linda Rice said...

I agree Gabe. Plus the pitching is pretty deep.

Quay Ho said...

Several teams are spending a lot of $$$$$.

Erica Nuyens said...

Merry Christmas WIN METHOD. Love ya

Seth Gooden said...

I also think we will have a better team in 2013.

Ned Loftus,Daytona Beach said...

If we still need a part, go with a minor league kid of out own.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

Keep in mind Nunez can be a right handed bat for the outfield.

Victor Tinzik said...

Happy Holidays Yankee fans.

Tom Loughlin said...

I agree BIGTIME. We are better off going with our own youngsters.

RLA said...

Peaceful again today.

Yankeeforever said...

My best wishes to everyone this holiday season. Merry Christmas and LETS GO YANKEES in 13.

Seth Gooden said...

Stand pat guys. We will be fine with what we have now.

Gene A said...

Nice lineup for Yanks. Unknown is catcher and whoever it willbe will earn it in spring training.

Patricia Piper said...

Great holiday season to all.

Alex Antonius said...

Merry Christmas.

jimbo said...

Best of the season to all and to all a happy new year.

Frank Sergi said...

Merry Christmas and may 2013 be a great year for the Yankee fans.

Ravi Maragh said...

All's calm. Merry Christmas to my WIN METHOD friends.

Warren Hammond said...

Blessed holiday season fans.

MomanRick said...

Good season and good year to all posters here.

johnsondc said...

LOL. The jerks on the talk forums are rejoicing that Ichiro signed. WIN METHOD knew and stated here over a month ago that Ichiro was signing with the Yankees and going no where else. Just another reason why the WIN METHOD blog is the best and most knowledgeable in the world.

Lou Lis said...

This site rules.

Victor Grandozi said...

Merry Christmas

Tomas Velez said...

Have a great holiday and new year everyone.

Izzy Hernandez said...

Feliz Navidad.

Carl Hooks said...

WIN METHOD is almost always right. He was more than three weeks ahead of the sports world regarding Ichiro signing.

Oliver Moore said...

The WIN METHOD rules. Go to Google Images and search WIN METHOD.

Teena/ bronx said...

Hope everyone has their shopping done. Merry Christmas.

Roy Olsen said...

Have a good one everybody.

Laura Koehler said...

Searched Images on Google with WIN METHOD and the 70 cake and blog came up. Big time.

Randy Wilson,CO said...

The best the season has to offer to everyone.

Stan the Man said...

Here's to a great Christmas everyone.

Teena/Bronx said...

Merry Christmas and let 2013 be a WIN METHOD Yankee year.

Erica Johnston said...

Headed to grandmas. Great Christmas to all. And to all be safe and have a great new year.

Ken Sheppard said...

Happy Holidays.

Ned Loftus,Daytona Beach said...

Merry Christmas.

NJYANKEE said...

Happy Holidays everyone.

Chen Cho said...

WIN METHOD first on Ichiro as the rest of the world fiddles with themselves.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

Seasons greetings to all Yankee fans.

Harry Stavris said...

Merry Christmas, even to the stat fruads.

Allie Singh said...

Lets do Christmas song titles and relate it Yankees, WIN METHOD, and baseball in general. I'll start.

jimbo said...

Good King Wenceslas = George Steinbrenner.
