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.

At this point in the season, todays game is as close to a must win as there can be, even though it isn't.

Chen Cho said...

Jeter back tomorrow in Toronto.

Cory said...

1-1 after 4. Cano HR.

Tom Loughlin said...

2-2 after 6.

Stan the Man said...

2-2 after 8. We need to win.

Alex Antonious said...

Extra innings.

Jen Vitter said...

Yanks score in 11th for 3-2 lead. Mo in to try for the save.

Donna2 said...

Mo does it again, another save. Yankees win it 3-2.

Frank Sergi said...

Theeee Yankeeeeeeees Winnnn.

Hector Lopez said...

Big really needed win. Nova solid, relief corp perfect. Lets roll.

Laura Koehler said...

Todays win could very well define the rest of our season and the drive to the playoffs.

Mel Cobb said...

Hughes, Pettitte, Kuroda on tap for Toronto series. Jeter to start.

Erica Johnston said...

Lead us Jetes. Lead us to the playoffs again.

Gus Papa said...

27 more

Carl Hooks said...

Wins, we need wins. Only wins can take a team to the playoffs. Absolutely nothing else matters.

Todd Jacobs said...

Hopefully Hughes can give us another good game.

Ted Lilly said...

Go Yankees

Saul Irving said...

Play and win one game at a time. Out pitch and out hit them.

bigbadwolf said...

Jeter the WIN METHOD icon makes his presence felt. Gardner single, takes 2nd on passed ball, Jeter moves Gardner to 3rd with 1 out by hitting grounder moving Gardner over. Gardner scores on ground out by Cano. Pure WIN METHOD.

Steve said...

1-1 after 2.

AAA said...

Yanks down 2-1 after 3. Hughes sloppy again.

Eddie OConnor said...

Yanks tie it 2-2 in top of 5th, then Hughes implodes and puts Yanks down 5-2. Thankfully Hughes is taken out of game.

Steve said...

Yanks down 5-2 after 5.

RLA said...

I think it's time for Hughes to be dropped from the rotation.

Zhaire said...

Yanks down 5-2 after 8. Do we have a major rally in us.

Steve said...

Yanks lose it. 5-2

Ravi Maragh said...

We couldn't expect to beat the Jays every game, hopefully we will take the next two.

Lou Lis said...

Hate this playing from behind.

Mickey Morch said...

Do it again Andy. Another win for the team.

Dave Eddington said...

Jeter leads his team to four first inning runs and a 4-0 lead after one.

will-i-am said...

Yanks lead 5-0 after 3.

Sharon/NC said...

Cano hot by pitch on hand in first inning. Waiting for results and prognosis.

Steve said...

5-0 Yanks after 4.

Linda Rice said...

Pettitte with 7 shutout innings as Yanks lead 7-0.

Wayne Littlebear said...

Good news. Cano xrays negative. Return is day to day.

Steve said...

Yanks win 7-1.

Eddie Oconnor said...

Yankees win and even series. Kuroda for rubber game tomorrow.

Gus Papa said...

26 more wins.

Ray Greene said...

Win tonight takes the series.

Erica Johnston said...

Jeter is back and leading the way.

Ann Gallagher/PA said...

Pettitte and Warren gave the bullpen a solid night off. Now for Kuroda to bounce back to his winning form tonight.

C said...

Take this series tonight and then take the next three series.

Yankeeforever said...

Go Yankees, make the playoffs.

Paul Jekovic said...

We shall prevail. Go Yankees.

Ray from Boston said...

Lets go Yankees.

William Mensom said...

Wins and only wins determine the best teams and the best players.

johnsondc said...

Kuroda has a rotten first inning allowing 4 runs and saved from a worst inning by brilliant defense from Jeter making a diving stop in the hole and throwing the runner out from his knees.

Steve said...

Yanks down 6-0 after 2.

Warren Hammond said...

Our lineup looks pretty bad tonight. Too many swings at balls out of the strike zone.

William Mensom said...

We can't play like last night and expect to reach the playoffs. Off day today and then ten straight games and the goal should be a minimum of seven wins or more just to stay alive.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Yes William, time is getting short.

Sean Smith said...

We need to win every game.

Izzy Hernandez said...

Reaching the playoffs won't be easy.

Teena/Bronx said...

O's coming to the Bronx for 3 games. CC, Nova, and ohno Hughes on tap to start.

Linda Pardo said...

Man can we use a sweep.

Allie Singh said...

we can't lose any more series either.

Quay Ho said...

OK guys let all hang out. No holding back.

Saul Irving said...

No score after one.

Stan the Man said...

0-0 after 3. No hits by anyone.

YankeeMike said...

Yanks up 2-1 after 4 on Soriano HR.

Stan the Man said...

One heck of a strange game. First 3 innings no runs no hits for either team. 4th and 5th inning Orioles score 4 runs on 5 hits and Yankees score 7 runs on 7 hits for 7-4 lead after 5.

Frank Sergi said...

Afraud does it again. Kills big Yankee inning with another weak DP grounder with men on 1st and 3rd with 1 out. Doesn't bring in that extra run. Afraud is garbage.

Steve said...

7-4 yanks after 5.

Walt Belamy said...

Big spot for CC.
Can he come back with a shut down inning with a 7-4 lead.

Donna2 said...

CC can't get the shut down inning and O's get 1 back. Girardi pulling CC. Good call Joe. Kelly in for final out.

Chen Cho said...

Girardi mixing and matching big time. Kelly gets 1st out in 7th and then Logan comes in to get 2nd out. Then Robertson is in to get 3rd out. Looks like Joe is playing playoff baseball for the drive.

AAA said...

Great news Pettitte is now pitching Sundays game in place of ohno Hughes.

Steve said...

Yanks up 8-5 after 7.

Giambino said...

Robertson gets out of an iffy 8th stranding 2 runners and the tying run at the plate.

Stan the Man said...

Mo with the save, Yankees win game one 8-5.

Gus Papa said...

25 more wins.

Steve said...

Yanks win 8-5.

Paul Jekovic said...

In the 4th and 5th innings last night when the Yankees got to Gonzales of the Orioles it looked like ohno Hughes was pitching for the O's as we smacked him around.

Sharon/NC said...

With roster expansion, Hughes should not be allowed to start any more games this season.

Eddie OConnor said...

Nova needs to come up big today as does our lineup and subs. And every game by everybody for the rest of the drive to the playoffs.

Ann Gallagher/PA said...

If we hit like last night we will be in good shape. Sadly Kuroda has been disappointing last three starts.

Ben Rosen.Israel said...

Go Nova, go Yankees, keep the wins coming.

Nick Polito said...

Game time in the Bronx. Lets win.

will-i-am said...

Good new. Afraud benched. Yanks lead 1-0 after 2. Reynolds just made play on grounder at 3rd that Afraud could never make.

Cory said...

Yankees and Nova clinging to a 1-0 lead after 5.

Stanley Chin said...

1-0 Yanks after 7. Jeter with two inning ending double plays.

johnsondc said...

Cano HR gives Yankees 2-0 lead after 8.

Sean Smith said...

Game over, Nova complete game. Jeter brilliant defense again.

Deb F said...

Yankees win 2-0.

Gus Papa said...

24 more to go.

Tomas Velez said...

A very nice and solid win today. Lets not waste it and sweep the series tomorrow.

RLA said...

No more set backs, just wins.

Laura Koehler said...

Keep us winning Andy. Move forward to reach the goal.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

Keep winning team. WIN METHOD baseball, everyone contributes in their own way.

YankeeMike said...

Happy Thanksgiving guys and gals.

Raul Vasquez said...

The WIN METHOD is truth and wisdom.

Allen McKay said...

The truth is ALWAYS defined by wins and winning.
