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.

Andy K said...

Yankees win 4-2.

Eugene Rico said...

Great win, great road trip, great team. WIN METHOD.

Warren Hammond said...

On to Cleveland for a old fashioned double- header tomorrow. Niether Robertson nor Mo were hard used today so we could be in pretty good shape for tomorrow being how deep and good our pen is.

Saul Irving said...

Five straight wins with 2 games in Cleveland tomorrow.

WIN METHOD said...

From my sources. Phelps and Nuno to get starts tomorrow.

Quay Ho said...

Is it to much to ask to sweep todays double header.

Hector Lopez said...

WIN METHOD called it last night. Nuno and Phelps slated to start todays games.

Victor Tinzik said...

I can live with a split of todays games Quay, but a sweep would be fantastic.

Ben Rosen-Israel said...

It has been said, and now I will say it again.....WIN METHOD rules the baseball world.

Tom Loughlin said...

Youkilis and Granderson can't be far off, any day now.

Sean Smith said...

The Yankees have so many chips. Loaded from the bottom up.

Cory said...

Two games starting in on hour. Phelps in game one. Get 'em. Another win guys.

Steve said...

The worst of kinds of losses. Yanks go down 1-0 in first game of double header on a first inning home run. Phelps was great, Masterson was greater.

Ted Lilly said...

Yanks lose game one 1-0.

RLA said...

Yanks up 1-0 after 2 in game 2.

Saul Irving said...

Yankees and Nuno hold 1-0 lead after five.

Stan the Man said...

Adam warren pitches a 1,2,3 6th and Yankees cling to a 1-0 lead after 6. Nuno with an excellent five innings.

AAA said...

Yanks blow it open with 6 in the 7th for a 7-0 lead.

Eddie OConnor said...

Yanks earn a split with six runs in the seventh and take 7-0 lead.

Nuno will earn the win.

Warren Hammond said...

The baby corp of WIN METHOD draft picks show the way. The future is glowing with diamonds in the ruff.

Dan Evans said...

Game over Yanks win it 7-0. Nuno with 5 scoreless innings and Warren with 4 scoreless innings for the shutout. Split of the double header.

bigbadwolf said...

6-2 final of the road trip including the Indian rain out make up games. Solid baseball. The two game we lost were 1-0 and 2-0.

Sharon/NC said...

The Yankees rule. Especialy without afraud around.

Quay Ho said...

I am blessed to be part of the WIN METHOD.

johnsondc said...

We now have a short home stand. First in the Mariners and queen felix.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

This teams just gets deeper and deeper and better and better.

bigbadwolf said...

Quay, it is fans such as you who make the WIN METHOD the best in the world. Intelligent fans who know only wins and winning determine the best of the best.

Ken Shepherd said...

CC goes against Hernandez in tonights game. Or should I say 'queen felix'.

NJYANKEE said...

If CC brings his game face and the team can score a few runs, Hernandez will be taken down.

YankeeMike said...

No letups at home Take each series,

KevMac said...

This Yankee lineup will be a little different from what Hernandez has pitched against in the past.

William Mensom said...

The WIN METHOD and the Yankee team have made fools of the skeptics, the stat frauds, the talking heads, and all non-believers.

Fred Slube said...

Keep winning and march to the playoffs.

Erica Johnston said...

CC don't be outshined by the young arms. Shut them out and go hame with a win.

Cory said...

CC, show the queen sho's king.

Carl Hooks said...

Lets go Yankees, lets go.

Donna2 said...

Take game one. Lets go Yankees.

Bert Jackson said...

Lets get ready for some baseball WIN METHOD style.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Score first and score early.

Stan the Man said...

M's lead 1-0 after 3 on unearned run. Yanks have had chance but have not delivered when it counts.

Steve said...

Yanks down 1-0 after 5.

Steve said...

Yanks down 3-1 after 6 as CC gives up 2 run HR to Ibanez.

Steve said...

The Yankees score 3 in the bottom of the 7th to take a 4-3 lead.

Yankeeforever said...

Yanks up 4-3 after 7.

will-i-am said...

Robertson with a shutout 8th.

Sean Smith said...

Mo saves it and closes it with a 1,2,3 9th.

jimbo said...

Yankees win 4-3 and take game one and beat the queen.

Steve said...

Game over, Yanks win 4-3. Yes, another WIN METHOD win.

Claude Reeves said...

Granderson is back and played entire game tonight in left field.

Allie Singh said...

What a nice win, driving Hernandez from the game after only six innings.

Ned Loftus,Daytona Beach said...

Hughes starts tomorrow to try to take the series.

Karl Cameron said...

Very nice come from behind win. Theee Yankeeeeeeees Winnnn.

Tom Loughlin said...

Hughes was a little off last outing. Now is the time to prove his worth with a bounce back great game and a win.

Sharon/NC said...

A gritty come from behind win. I love it.

Donna2 said...

Just keep winning by playing team WIN METHOD baseball. To heck with meaningless individual stats.

Linda Rice said...

Take the series tonight and go for the sweep tomorrow.

Les Osaka said...

The glory of the WIN METHOD stands above anything else on just this season alone.

WIN METHOD said...

My word is that Teixeira will be playing MLB by the end of May.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

WIN METHOD..We will then just get deeper and deeper as a team. More options and more flexibility.

George W said...

Keep the line moving Phil.

Lou Lis said...

Keep it going Yankees. WINS are all that matters.

johnny said...

Baseball time. Go Yankees.

Steve said...

Hughes crashes and burns big time. Goes 2/3 inning allowing 7, yes 7 runs. This should test our metal.

Stan the Man said...

Wells solo blast cut M's lead to 7-1 after 2.

jimbo said...

What a horrid outing from Hughes. What's up?

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 9-2 after 5.

Steve said...

Yanks down 12-2 after 6. Lets put this puppy to bed.

johnsondc said...

Look at the bright side. It's a WIN METHOD loss. Lose by a lot and give the stat frauds there blank ammunition.

YankeeMike said...

12-2 after 7. Montgomery eating innings for the team.

Rahm Mahood said...

Pettitte goes today in rubber game to see who win the series.

MomanRick said...

Have to give credit to the kid Marshall. He ate up innings to save the pen and shortstop Gonzalez got the last out from the mound. If a loss is good 12-2 is the way to go.

Victor Gandozi said...

If Andy throws like last outing we will be fine tonight.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

My observation. Without Afraud at third, whoever plays third, plays it better than Afraud. Conversely without Jeter at short, does not play it as well as Jeter defensively.

Wes Westrum said...

Get on the win road Andy.

Andy K said...

Win tonite, win the series.

Warren Hammond said...

Granderson got his first hit last night. We are getting deeper and deeper slowly but surely.

Bob Behan said...

Make up for last night. the M's scored all in one game and will lose 2 of the 3.

johnny said...

Lets go Yankees.

Teena/Bronx said...

Get the job done Andy. First HR for Grandyman tonight?

Donna2 said...

1-1 after 3.

Sean Smith said...

Yanks down 2=1 after 4. Pettitte grinding.

Steve said...

Yanks down 3-1 after 6. Pettitte leaves in 5th with injury. Back again?

Fred Slube. said...

Yanks get one in the seventh, but trail 3-2.

YankeeMike said...

Stewart leaves game with injury.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks fail to score in 8th. One more chance to come from behind,

Steve said...

Yanks trial 3-2 after 8.

Steve said...

Yanks lose 3-2.

NJYANKEE said...

We had our chances but could not deliver when it mattered most. Lose 3-2.

Deb F said...

Yanks lose game, lose series, lose Pettitte, lose Stewart. Not a good day.

bigbadwolf said...

We beat Hernandez and then lose two games. Baseball is a funny game and a long telling season.

RLA said...

Need to recover this weekend and take this series and stop the slide.

Tommy Lee said...

Kuroda goes tonight. He has been our most consistent starter so far this season.

Tom Loughlin said...

Sadly, we have to win this series just to be .500 on this short home stand.

Domenic said...

It looks like Romaine will get a big time shot with Stewart down.

Alex Antonius said...

We need the win team. Score some runs because Hiroki will keep us alive.

Lee Askew said...

Rebound this weekend. Take it to them.

AAA said...

Do it again Hiroki. Get the win.

Giambino said...

Kuroda with another gem thru 7/ Yanks lead 2-0 batting in the 7th.

Seth Greene said...

5-0 Yanks after 7. We have game one.

Levi James said...

Kuroda has bee amazing. Shutout through eight and never really in trouble.

Fred Slube said...

The kids are coming along fine. What a classy team.

Erica Johnston said...

Phelps today to keep us on track.

Ted Lilly said...

Yanks up 5-1 after 5.

Bob Behan said...

Cano's 2 HR's and 5 RBI's account for all Yankee runs.

Seth Greene said...

Final, Yankees win it 7-2. Now for the sweep tomorrow with CC on the mound.

Giambino said...

Another stellar day for Phelps. Adams at third should mean the ousting of Afraud forever.

KevMac said...

If you are going to tomorrows game, bring a broom.

Teena/Bronx said...

We have some rain. Lets get the game in and another series sweep.

Linda Rice said...

No let ups CC. Get us the win and sweep.

Patricia Piper said...

Sad to say, the rain did not go away, but we will play another day.

Kornejo said...

Instead of sweeping a 3 game series we sweep a 2 game series. CC gets to open the Oriole series now.

Dan Evans said...

Rainouts aren't good when you are winning.

Chad Holt said...

Take down the O's in game one.

will-i-am said...

On to Baltimore for three games. We know what is expected.

Yankeeforever said...

CC in game one. Hopefully the extra day off and the break in routine doesn't hurt his chances.

Ann Gallagher/PA said...

We still may have to play around raindrops in Baltimore.

Carl Hooks said...

We just need to follow the desired scenario. Win game one and go from there.

Eddie O'Connor said...

Bring it CC and the O's with all 0's.

Cory said...

Freddy Garcia to throw batting practice.

Walt Drummond said...

2-1 Yanks after 3.

Steve said...

CC sloppy. 2-2 after five.

Mike Smith said...

Each time the Yanks give CC a run he gives it right back. In the 7th he gives more back and Yanks down 4-3 after 7. CC not pitching like an ace.

Steve said...

Yanks down 4-3 after 7.

Dan Evans said...

Hafner HR in 9th ties it 4-4. Robertson in to pitch the 9th.

Steve said...

Extra innings. 4-4 after 9.

Tom Loughlin said...

4-4 after 9.

Stan the Man said...

Yankees with 2 in the 10th take 6-4 lead. Mo coming in for the save.

Steve said...

Rivera 1,2,3 10th. Yanks win it 6-4.

will-i-am said...

Final 6-4 in 10. Theeeee Yankeeeeees Win.

Stanley Chin said...

It wasn't easy, but it was a win.

evan donohue said...

Good start to the series. Hughes goes in tomorrows game. We will see what he has on tap for us.

Rick Merenick said...

Now if Hughes can pitch like he really can. Hope he didn't lose confidence after last putrid start.

Linda Pardo said...

It's scary the way we win some of our games. Destiny?

Hector Lopez said...

If Hughes can get back on track it would be a nice boost to a solid staff.

Mark Gruden said...

CC has been grinding. He has yet to show consistent dominance this season.

Domenic said...

Don't be surprised if CC is pacing himself for a grand year after all is said and done.

Tony Gigante said...

Hughes' arm should be well rested for tonight. He could be hitting 94+ consistently. But pitching is much more the fast balls.

Felix Lopez said...

OK Phil. You are on the hot seat. Perform.

Teena/Bronx said...

Take this series tonight. No let-uos guys.

Cory said...

Do it Hughes. Muffle your attackers.

KevMac said...

1-1 after 3.

AAA said...

Yankees lose it 3-2.

Steve said...

Nuno gives up lead off HR in 10th. Yanks go down 3-2.

Jerry Curcio said...

Tough 3-2 extra inning loss.

Eugene Rico said...

Tough loss yesterday. Rubber game today. Kuroda for the good guys.

evan donohue said...

No team wins them all. We are playing great baseball. Win today and we move on with another series win.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

I agree, win tonight and move on to Tampa after a well deserved off day.

George Thompson said...

Get the series tonight team.

Fred Slube said...

Kuroda has bee our mainstay so far. Do it again Hiroki.

johnsondc said...

Hughes gets little support again, but that is part of the game. He left with a no decision thus keeping his team in the game and giving them a good chance to win.

johnny said...

Go Yankees

William Mensom said...

Last nights loss was the first the Yankees suffered after scoring first in a game. They won 19 straight scoring first games and they were the last team in MLB to lose a scoring first game.

Patricia Piper said...

Lets go Yankees. Take the series.

NJYANKEE said...

The Yankees will need a comeback to win tonight as Kuroda gives up 3 first inning runs. 3-0 O's after one.

Saul Irving said...

Yanks now need a bigger comeback. Down 6-1 after 3.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 6-2 after 7. Time to make hay or lose the series.

AAA said...

Yankees lose 6-3.

will-i-am said...

Kuroda leaves game with bruised right calf.

Steve said...

Yanks go down 6-3. Lose series. On to Tampa.

Donna2 said...

Off day. Time to recoup.

Levi James said...

Plain and simple, the O's out-pitched us.

Zhaire said...

If we take 2 of 3 in Tampa we will be .500 on this road trip.

RLA said...

We can root for our rivals to lose on our off days.

Ted Lilly said...

Good call. Our two closest pursuers both lose tonight.

Bert Jackson said...

Nice. A day off an gain a 1/2 game on your two closest rivals. now to win tonight.

johnsondc said...

Back to baseball. Enjoy the holiday weekend fans.

Chen Cho said...

Phelps gets tonights start.

Quay Ho said...

We haven't lost three straight games all season. Tonight is a must win if we continue that record.

Deb F said...

It would help our starters if the lineup scored a few more runs.

Seth Greene said...

Take game one. Just like a first pitch strike or a first batter out each inning, it makes a difference.

Cory said...

Lets go Yankees. Keep up the winning.

Victor Gandozzi said...

Take game one, go Yankees.

will-i-am said...

Yanks score 3 in 2nd for a 3-0 lead after 2.

Tom Loughlin said...

Gardner 2 run blast puts Yankees up 5-0 after 4.

Stan the Man said...

8-0 Yankees after 5.

Eddie OConnor said...

Yanks up 9-4 after 8. Granderson HBP, broken left pinky. DL?

Erica Johnston said...

hope Phelps is OK.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

We got game one. this afternoon the Yankees Nuno making his second MLB start goes against the Rays Moore who is 8-0 so far this season.

Levi James said...

A win today would be really big.

Roy Strickland said...

No one wins all the time and neither will the Rays Moore. Today could be the day.

Donna2 said...

A win today would be a giant feather fin the Yankee cap.

Mike Smith said...

It looks like Phelps got away lucky. Granderson out a month.

Allie Singh said...

Yanks score in the 1st on Gardner double and Hafner single for 1-0 lead.

Bev F said...

Yankees lead 1-0 after one.

Billy Tedder said...

Still 1-0 Yanks after 3.

Nick Polito said...

Rays with 1 in the 5th tie game 1-1.

Frank Sergi said...

Happy Memorial Day fans.

Saul Irving said...

Rays score in the 7th and take 3-1 lead. Yanks have two innings to mount a comeback.

jimbo said...

Rays lead 3-1 after 7.

RLA said...

Yanks down 3-1 after 7.
