WIN METHOD....bringing out the best

Here it is the last month of the 2013 MLB regular season and the drive to the playoffs is on.   And yes, this YANKEE team is in the hunt and could still reach the playoffs this season.  WIN METHOD fans, and all baseball fans, think of the playing time lost by so many YANKEES this season.  I bet we couldn't name everyone, but lets try.   We lost regulars, then we lost replacements for the regulars, then we lost subs for the replacement players.

Jeter, Teixeira, Granderson, Cervelli, Youkilis, Hafner, Phelps, Nix, Almonte, Nunez, and you can throw in sad to say Afraud.  Add in the smaller injuries to several others for various amounts of time and you have more games missed than you can shake a stick at.

Through all the injuries the WIN METHOD has selected enough quality players producing just enough and at the right time to help keep this years YANKEE team in the playoff dog fight.  The YANKEE season isn't over yet.

It is as it always has been a matter of WINS.  Only WINS can take a team and a player to the second season.  Nothing else matters, no stat of any kind, be it an actual reality based stat or a convoluted misleading man made stat used and relied upon only by the most foolish of baseball fans.
A question that that the stat frauds can't handle and refuse to answer is....would you rather go to the playoffs because you won enough games, or would you rather lead the league in stats and not make the playoffs???

The interesting story of this season and what we need to take away from this season, is just how well the WIN METHOD can produce, even in the worst of times, and then just how great a season 2014 will look to be.  First things first, lets all root for this YANKEE team to reach the playoffs this season.  No matter what happens the rest of the year, this 2013 YANKEE team has done the WIN METHOD and Joe Girardi proud.  Lets roll.

Well said WIN METHOD. Lets roll.

YankeeMike said...

Lets roll and make this season one to remember.

Jack Bauer said...

Like we Yankee fans proudly boast (while nonYankee fans viciously deny) something happens to a ball player when they don the pinstripes. Pride overwhelms their natural ability and they become just a little better.

Pride and tradition has powered this uneven, quirky yet exciting season for our beloved Yankees.

More proud this season to be Yankee fan than I have in a long time

Erica Nuyens said...

Hi WIN METHOD, Lets roll, love ya.

Stan the Man said...

Final, loss 7-3. Not good.

Victor Gandozi said...

We won the series but should have swept.

Cory said...

Lets roll and sweep the White sox.

Sad to say winning 2 of 3 games the rest of the way may not be good enough to make the playoffs.

Randy Holt said...

Just have to keep plugging along and not give up.

Ben Rosen.Israel said...

We just have to do the best we can, and as WIN METHOD has said we all should be proud of the effort and results this team has accomplished this season considering the hardships we encountered.

Yanks lead 6-4 after 8.

Stan the Man said...

Yankee turn around and lead 6-4 after 8.

That's a sweep of the Sox. Now for a sweep of the sux.

Erica Johnston said...

What a season. Very exciting.

Cory said...

Nova gets the game one start tomorrow. Do it again Ivan.

Ravi Maragh said...

Continue to win. If Nova follows up with a game like his last one, we will win tonight.

Victor Bruno said...

The negative last night was Robertsons effort. His failure created the need to use Rivera the game before a big four games series with the Redsox.

Stanley Chin said...

Hughes sill be another arm in the bullpen and should help with a solid inning or two.

Eddie Oconnor said...

This is a big series and I will be very happy with 3 of the 4 games.

Felix Lopez said...

Keep looking forward guys. One game at a time. Wins.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

It will be an exciting weekend. Hope it is a winning one for the Yankees.

As the season draws to an end each game and win or loss could mean the playoffs or not.

Do it again Ivan. Shut them out.

Start this series off with a win. Go Yankees.

Ted Lilly said...

Is everybody ready for Yankee baseball and a Yankee win.

Yank23245 said...

Game time. Lets roll. Lets rock them.

Cory said...

What I like is the sux scoring 20 runs last night. They could be swung out and tired of running around the bases.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

Yep those wasted meaningless stats probably made the fantasy stat frauds hearts go pitipat-pitipat.

Domenic said...

No score after one.

Steve said...

0-0 after 2.

Ike Davis said...

0-0 after 2.

Stan the Man said...

Chen Cho said...

Redsox score first with 2 in third.

Stan the Man said...

Nova has thrown over 80 pitches, yes 80 in only 3 innings.

Steve said...

2-2 after 3.

RLA said...

Claiborne in for th3 5th and gives up HR to 1st batter. 4-2 sux and batting.

johnsondc said...

Afraud the sieve at 3b costs Yankees 3 runs in 5ht as sux take 6-2 lead.

Xandua said...

Yanks down 6-2 after 5.

Donna2 said...

With men on 2nd and 3rd and 1 out, Afraud strikes out again and doesn't bring in the game tying run. Pure garbage and cheating garbage at that.

will-i-am said...

Overbay delivers with 2 out and Yanks score 6 times for a 8-7 lead after 7.

Steve said...

8-7 Yanks after 7.

Tom Loughlin said...

Afraud sucks and it isn't over yet. The sux are like us, they don't give up.

Nick Polito said...

Typical sux-Yankee game. Hold on guys, hold on.

Yank23245 said...

Robertson not fooling around tonight. Strikes out the first two sux in the 8th. Gets 3rd out on grounder to Jetes.

Pete H said...

Yes, a 1,2,3 8th for DRob. Lets get an insurance run.

Stan the Man said...

Rivera in for the 9th.

YankeeMike said...

Do it Mo.

Deb F said...

After 2 outs Mo gives up single, stolen base and game tying single. 8-8.

Domenic said...

sux tie it 8-8. Can we win it in the 9th.

Steve said...

8-8 after 9.

Levi James said...

Extra innings. Nerve racking to say the least.

Benny Pake said...

Joba in for the 10th.

Lou Lis said...

Joba has little. We need to get lucky.

bigbadwolf said...

Joba gives up a run and sux still batting. Three batters, three hard line drives. Joba will be gone, he's done.

Eddie Oconnor said...

Do we have another come back in us.

Seth Greene said...

Afraud caught flat footed and doesn't cover third on steal.

Frank Sergi said...

sux up 9-8 as Yanks come to bat in 10th.

Izzy Hernandez said...

Lets roll. Come on guys.

Stanley Chin said...

Afraud leads off. Afraud pops up. Useless.

Giambino said...

Overbay with a solid at bat, fouling off pitches. 11th pitch strikes out.

Stan the Man said...

If we lose se need Rays to lose so not to lose any ground.

Stan the Man said...

Ichiro up with 2 out. Ichiro strikes out.

RLA said...

Final, Yanks lose 9-8 in 10.

Billy Tedder said...

Tough loss. Andy tomorrow.

Tommy Lee said...

Better luck tomorrow.

Ann Gallagher/PA said...

I watched last night from start to finish, had my ups and downs, and then couldn't fall asleep. Heck it's great being a Yankee fan.

Bert Jackson said...

Can Pettitte do it again and keep us alive with a win tonight.

Sid Loftus said...

At least the Angels lost last night, but he could've. should've gained a game.

I agree, Joba has got to go.

Gene A said...

Tough tough loss. Having to use Mo for 4 outs the night before may have made the difference last night.

Cory said...

Come on guys, we need the win. Don't back off.

Victor Gandozi said...

Jeter walk Soriano HR give Yanks 2-0 lead after 1.

Yank23245 said...

RLA said...

8-3 Yanks after 5.

Linus Walsh said...

8=3 Yanks after 6. Pettitte did what was needed. ohno Hughes coming in for the 7th.

jimbo said...

ohno is a disaster and gets no help from the sieve Afraud. 1 run in bases loaded and 1 out. ohno is pulled and Logan in to face Ortiz in a big spot.

will-i-am said...

Come on Booney we need this game.

will-i-am said...

Logan strikes out Ortiz for 2nd out.

will-i-am said...

Napoli up. We still need an out.

will-i-am said...

Napoli with a grand slam tying game at 8.

Giambino said...

ohno Hughes has to go along with Joba.

Mike Smith said...

8-8 with us coming to bat in the 7th. Wow another crazy game.

Donna2 said...

Claiborne gets banged for 2 run HR in 8th. sux take 10-8 lead.

Giambino said...

Joba relieves Claiborne and gives u p 2 more runs. sux up 12-8. Another nightmare.

RLA said...

I can't take this anymore. I'm getting sick.

Stan the Man said...

8 done. 12-8 sux.

Seth Greene said...

We went from an 8-3 lead after 6 to a 12-8 deficit after 8. Pen gave up 9 runs in 2 innings.

Alex Antonius said...

OK, we get to play tomorrow again.

Raul Gomez said...

Daley, newest Yankee on mound for the 9th. He is the 53rd player to play for the Yankees this season, an all time record. Daley pitches a scoreless 9th.

William Mensom said...

I replayed several times the slow roller Pedroia got scored a hit on that Afraud didn't handle. It very likely was the turning point in the game. Napoli would never have come to the plate as things happened. Replaying it, I do not think there is another third baseman in baseball who wouldn't have gotten the out at first and very well saved the game. Afraud is a disaster and is killing this team.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

The Rays lost night, so we are still 2.5 behind them but a couple of teams jumped yes by a half game. It ain't over and may go down to the last game of the season.

Rahm Mahood said...

We do need to win and get going. The sux seem to be on fire now and hitting on all cylinders. Will they be able to hold it together for the playoffs.

Stanley Chin said...

Huff gets a big time test this afternoon. If he is better than ohno Hughes we are ahead of the game.

Jerry Curcio said...

sux lead 5-2 after 3. Huff may not be the answer.

BIGTIMEYANKEE said...

sux with 5 in 4th for a 10-2 lead. Wow, the are sizzling.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 12-7 after 6. At least they haven't thrown in the towel.

Guy Lafleur said...

Yanks down 12-7 after 7.

Allie Singh said...

Yanks down 12-9 after 8. Never give up.

will-i-am said...

Yanks lose 13-9. You much more help can we expect.

Domenic said...

Score 9 runs and never really in the game.

Yankeeforever said...

Kuroda tomorrow to break the skid.

Jack Bauer said...

Just like us the Rays lost again last night. We are getting more help than we deserve. It is on us.

Yank23245 said...

bosux bats have to cool off sometime. Can Kuroda do it today.

Ron Kitrell said...

Still 2.5 out of wild card, but 3 teams in front of us. We have got to win games.

Pete H said...

At least some of the bullpen stalwarts will be ready for today.

will-i-am said...

win today win.

bigbadwolf said...

Yanks down 1-0 after 2.

Fred Slube said...

Yanks up 3-1 after 5. Kuroda starting the 6th inning at 105 pitches.

Stan the Man said...

Kuroda finishes 6th and leaves with Yanks up 3-2 after 6.

Eddie OConnor said...

Kelly hold the sux in the 7th. Lets get some runs.

Teena/ Bronx said...

Afraud fails in the clutch again, popping out with two men on and two out. 3-2 after 7.

Deb F said...

Rivera in for the 8th looking for a 2 inning save.

Warren Hammond said...

Mo gets thru the 8th and the Yanks lead 3-2. Get a run guys.

Stan the Man said...

Nothing in the 8th and Yanks lead 3-2. Mo needs 3 more outs.

johnsondc said...

I'll leave the words to others. Yankees win 4-3.

Domenic said...

Rivera blows the save with one bad pitch in two innings, but earns win as the Yankees scratch a run in the 9th for the 4-3 win.

Gus Papa said...

19 wins to go.

Norm Coleman said...

Now on to Baltimore. Still alive and CC starts tonight.

Domenic said...

Wins and only wins will determine who goes to the second season. Go CC, go Yankees.

Patricia Piper said...

We can do it, we can do it, we can do it, yes we can.

Erica Johnston said...

CC has to be the old dominant CC to help us to the playoffs. Jeter ankle rested and should be back tonight.

YankeeMike said...

Lets run a 10 game win streak and see where that takes us.

AAA said...

Go Yankees, get it done.

evan donohue said...

1-1 after 3.

Steve said...

Yanks down 3-1 after 5. Yank bats silent,

Steve said...

Yanks lose 4-2.

Tom Loughlin said...

Granderson flies out to centerfield wall as tying run for the final out in 9th. Yanks go down 4-2.

Alex Antonius said...

Nova on tap tonight to even series. We need wins.

Chen Cho said...

We need to hit a little more. With Jeter out, that does not help.

Quay Ho said...

Come on Ivan, we need the win very much.

Ron Francis said...

One final push to close out the season. Do it or go home and watch.

Yank23245 said...

If we run the table we make the playoffs. IF

Walt Belamy said...

It's now or never guys. Nothing but wins.
