WIN METHOD...YANKEES...TRUTH & WISDOM

WOW! YANKEE fans.  What a great start to the 2013 season by this WIN METHOD built team.    Stellar team play from guys like Hafner, Youkilis, Overbay, Nix, Nunez, Cervelli, Warren, etal.  With injuries to key players, Jeter, Granderson, Teixeira, Pineda, we survive and fight on.    Add in the injuries to Cervelli and Youkilis, and you wind up with one heck of amazing performance by this team so far this 2013 season.    16-10 win-loss record to end the first month of the season.   A season that most prognosticators and talking heads were predicating only the worst case scenario for this years YANKEE team.   The naysayers, the voices of gloom and doom have been silenced.  Now their tired refrain is 'it can't go on'.  But that is why we post here on the WIN METHOD blog.   We post truth and wisdom, we support our team, and try to be positive.   You guys and gals are WIN METHOD, you are the best, and you have made this site the biggest and best in baseball.

Coming down the road, we will have players returning to the lineup and a few guys who are here now will have to be dropped.   We have so much talent on the horizon the YANKEES will continue their run of superiority and dominance unrivaled during the past two decades.   There is only one player who we do not need back, and much of the teams success so far this year may have much to do with him not being here.   We all know who we don't want back but may be forced to take back.  No more Afraud, please.

How about Mariano Rivera.  The pitching machine is as great as ever and that is saying something since he is the greatest relief pitcher in the history of baseball.

I see, as many of you have also seen, the stat fraud postings have been miniscule here lately.  They have been beaten down with truth, wisdom, and logic.   For newer posters here, stat frauds are the people who manufacture and create convoluted invalid formulas to try to evaluate players and then try to tell the world which players are best.  Only the basic baseball stats are legitimate, runs, hits, batting average, etc.  When you see or hear War, AWAR, ZR, replacement value and other garbage, ignore them and always remember that only wins and winning determine the best of the best.

If anyone has any questions, post them on this blog, and you will be answered by any and many of the brilliant knowledgeable baseball fans here.  Post your opinions and views.  Naysayers, post also, call us names if you wish, but foul language will always be deleted.  We ban no one and love to hear from all sides.  Even the stat frauds, who have no game and no sense.

The injured will slowly return and the playoffs are on the horizon.  This team is what the WIN METHOD is all about.  Rising to the occasion and excelling in the face of adversity.

Very nice, go Yankees.

Mike Smith said...

Phelps will get it done tonight if he reads the WIN METHOD.

Domenic said...

WIN METHOD is truth and wisdom. Lets roll.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

I see why this blog is the best. Love it.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

The truth overcomes the detractors.

bigbadwolf said...

We can take another series tonight. But only if we win. Nothing else matters. Just more truth and wisdom.

Quay Ho said...

We are number one. Go Yankees. Win tonight.

Victor Gandozzi said...

Thank you WIN METHOD

Karl Cameron said...

Love the Yankees and love this blog. Both are the best in baseball.

Take the series tonight.

AAA said...

Nothing surpasses winning and that is where the stat frauds go wrong.

johnsondc said...

Thank you fans for making this blog the best in baseball.

RLA said...

Do it Phelps. You may be running out of chances. Pitch and earn a spot.

Yankeeforever said...

Start off may like we finished April.

Steve said...

4-0 Yanks after three. Phelps has been in total control for the first three innings.

Kris Hollins said...

You spoke to soon Steve. Phelps implodes and gives up four in the fourth. 4-4 game.

Jed,NJ said...

4-4 after 4. Astro pitcher Bedard has thrown 90 pitches through 4 innings.

Stanley Chin said...

Yanks take 5-4 lead after six. Phelps in line for the win if score holds. One rotten inning.

Rick Merenick said...

5-4 yanks coming to bat in the 7th.

Steve said...

Logan with a shut down 7th and Robertson with a shut down 8th. Yanks lead 5-4 coming to bat. Mo another save/

Stan the Man said...

5-4 after 8. Mo coming on.

Steve said...

Yanks up 5-4 after 8.

Victor Bruno said...

Mo does it again. 11th save.

Steve said...

Yanks win it 5-4.

AAA said...

Ballgame over 5-4 Yanks.

Jerry Curcio said...

Starts may with a win. Win another series.

johnsondc said...

love to win a series and be outscored by the other team. It's all about the wins, the other stuff is for the stat fraud losers.

Tomas Velez said...

Excellent post WIN METHOD. And dead on right. Nice win last night and Mo just keeps rolling along.

Deb F said...

Great blog fans. Isn't it nice to see a happy team dugout without afraud in it.

Randy Wilson,CO said...

Phelps was pretty solid but for one inning last night. To be a better level starter, he would need to eliminate those big innings and just allow a run or two. He has good stuff.

Sharon/NC said...

Nice to have a day off. Even for us fans.

matterhorn said...

Came over after seeing blog listed in the mlb forum. Interesting.

Felix Lopez said...

West coast teams starting tomorrow.

C said...

The stat frauds are choking on WIN METHOD success.

KevMac said...

CC will start our weekend series, then Hughes and Pettitte.

Harry Stavris said...

What will be fun to see is just how Girardi works in each player as each returns to the lineup. I s a possibility of having to much.

Zhaire said...

Just keep finding guys who keep putting the Yankees in the playoffs. That is why the WIN METHOD is better than anything else fin the world.

Quay Ho said...

Lovely common sense clean blog.

Tom Loughlin said...

Just keep winning one series at a time one game at a time.

WIN METHOD said...

Quick update...Joba put on 15 day DL Oblique.

Pineda rehab going great. Do not be surprised to see him this year.

Warren Hammond said...

Losing players seems to be the norm for us this year. When we start getting guys back lets see what happens.

William Mensom said...

No other team in baseball could lose players like the Yankees have and play winning baseball like the Yankees have. Why? The WIN METHOD.

Donna2 said...

Lets continue bing upbeat and win tonight. CCs the man.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

How about Pineda coming back in July or August and pitching the way we think he can.

Carl Hooks said...

The following is quoted from a thread on the Yankee forum of a baseball talk forum, by a poster 'Yaz'......

""80 wins without Soriano. How the Yankees think they can lose a 42 save closer and replace him with a 43 year old is a mystery to me. Mo won't be sitting on 3-run leads like he's used to...he'll be blowing 1-run games. Pettite will be retired by the All-Star break. Jeter, Tex and CC will either be hurt or average. A-Rod/Youk will be hurt or below average. Cano and Ichiro will do their jobs but it won't be enough. And their pitching won't touch the rest of the AL East.""

This is every reason in the world why we post here on the WIN METHOD blog. Nothing else needs to be said.

Yankeeforever said...

Hi Carl... Let me add that there are some very good posters on those forums. However for every good one there are 10+ bad ones. The moderators as a whole are the worst but for one or two. This is the place for smart Yankee fans.

Sharon/NC said...

Thanks for the update WIN METHOD.

Ty Keel said...

Keep us on the winning side CC. Shut them down.

Rahm Mahood said...

Don't be surprised to see both Teixeira and Granderson this month. would allow for extra power right hand bat in the lineup up Teixeria. And a another power left hand bat with Granderson. Against a RH pitcher. Outfield all lefty, Gardner, Granderson, Ichiro. Hafner, DH, Teiseira 1B, Cano 2B, six lefties. Youk 3B, Nunez SS, and Stewart C.

Ned Loftus,Daytona Beach said...

Take game one and move on to tomorrow.

will-i-am said...

Go Yankees.

NJYANKEE said...

Yanks blanked 2-0.

YankeeMike said...

Yanks go down 2-0. Hughes to even the series tomorrow.

William Mensom said...

Interesting thing about baseball. And you always look in retrospect. CC threw his first pitch and lost the game right at that moment.

Ben Rosen--Israel said...

Hughes gets another chance to be the stopper again. Can he make it four great games in a row.

Linda Pardo said...

Get even today. Got to keep winning games.

sid greeberg,nyc said...

Overbay Ballantine blast gives Yankees 2-0 lead after five.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks lead 4-0 after 7. Hughes has pitched 7 ace scoreless innings and is coming out for the 8th.

Gus Papa said...

Is it possible Hughes has turned the corner, figured it all out, and has come into his own? If he has this team is going to go an awful long way this season.

Eddie OConnor said...

Hughes and Yankees win 4-2. Pen gives up 2 meaningless stat fraud runs in the 9th.

Izzy Hernandez said...

Series even as Yanks win. Rubber game with Andy going tomorrow.

Eddie Oconnor said...

Hughes was fantastic, I think he threw 117 pitches.

Andy K said...

Hughes' performance helped carry a short pen.

MomanRick said...

Very nice bounce back win today. Now ti take the series tomorrow.

Billy Tedder said...

Now we will see if Pettitte bounces back from his last horrendous outing.

Deb F said...

Great job Phil. Welcome to the world of dominant pitchers.

johnsondc said...

Claiborne has pitched the 6th and 7th for the Yanks and looks great. Another WIN METHOD gem.

Victor Gandozzi said...

Logan in for the 8th and gives up HR. A's lead 5-4 with Yanks coming up in the 8th.

Steve said...

Down 5-4 after 8. One more chance.

Steve said...

Yanks go down fighting 5-4.

RLA said...

Yanks lose 5-4. Tough loss, and lose series.

Felix Lopez said...

Rotten loss. The brightest spot was Claibornes two innings. And was off second game in row. Nix stunk up the place at the plate. Logan gets the loss.

AAA said...

We have off day tomorrow to head West for three in Colorado and three in KC.

Eugene Rico said...

Yes, it was a tough loss today. The future is very very bright however.

C said...

The big guys are coming, the big guys are coming,

Tom Loughlin said...

Kuroda, Phelps, CC in Colorado. Then Hughes, Pettitte, Kuroda in KC. At least .500 on the road. 4-2 would be great.

Nick Polito said...

Claiborne had a spotless first MLB appearance. Another solid arm.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Slowly the season move along. 30 games played and 18-12 is solid.

AAA said...

Granderson/Wells flip flop is nice combo going forward.

Billy Tedder said...

DRob will be able to pitch tomorrow. That gives us an extra inning.

Lou Lis said...

Get back to winning each series.

Teena/Bronx said...

Sorry guys, my 2nd loss in two years.

Carl Hooks said...

No DH when we play the inferior league teams in their home parks.

Oliver Moore said...

The talking head have always knocked the Yankee farm, but the Yankee farm has given us many roster players over the past two decades and many chips used in trades for players. WIN METHOD is the best and the Yankee record proves that.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

I dread our pitchers swinging the bat in these inferior league games,

AAA said...

Kuroda gets the start for the Yankees tonight in the first game of a six game road trip.

Victor Bruno said...

Start us off with a win Kuroda.

Cory said...

Take the game 1, 2, and 3. Everybody hits in Colorado.

Saul Irving said...

Home coming Hiroki, back against a nl team.

Linda Pardo said...

Mow them down Hiroki. Take charge.

NJYANKEE said...

Yanks 3 up 3 down in the 8th. down 2-0 with one more chance.

Giambino said...

Yanks lose it 2-0. The bats looked very sad tonight. Kuroda was solid again.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks lose 2-0.

KevMac said...

You can't win unless you score no matter how well your pitching is. Not a good start to the road trip. Make amends tonight.

Linus Walsh said...

Phelps turn to be a stopper and get us even.

Phil Jenkins said...

What is also helping the Yankees in this time of injuries is that no one in the division has shown any dominance so far.

Domenic said...

We need to score runs and support Phelps and all of our pitchers.

Patricia Piper said...

Hang tight men, reinforcements are on the way.

will-i-am said...

Get the loss back tonight. Win.

matterhorn said...

Wells 2 run home run stakes Yankees and Phelps to an early lead.

will-i-am said...

Theee Yankeeeeeeees Win.

MomanRick said...

Yankees scratch a run in the ninth and Mo saves his 12th of the season, 3-2.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks win 3-2. A tough gritty win. Phelps was good and the pen did the 7th, 8th, 9th,

Gus Papa said...

Tanks even series with 3-2 win. CC for the rubber game and the series win tomorrow.

Izzy Hernandez said...

We scored 3 runs in the last w games combined but got a win out of it. Says much about our pitching.

A WIN METHOD run if there ever was one. Double, ground out behind the runner moving him to third, and a sacrifice fly for the run. Beautiful.

Donna2 said...

RAIN DELAY

Erica Johnston said...

Looks like the delay will be an extended period of time.

Steve said...

Yanks use six pitchers to earn 3-1 win and take Colorado series. Warren gets the win, Claiborne the hold, and Mo his 13th save.

Victor Gandozi said...

Good start to roadie. No let ups now. On to KC and taking another series.

Warren Hammond said...

Super news re Grandyman.

Deb F said...

I just love the way this team is playing right now. Team baseball and the only guy when he comes back sho can gum up the works is Afraud.

Cory said...

As our injured get back this team will get stronger and stronger.

Seth Greene said...

Lets roll and keep winning.
