WIN METHOD 2014 -- A SEASON TO REMEMBER

It has arrived.  YANKEE opening day game for the 2014 season.  This will be an epic season.  Derek Jeter, the last member of the 'Core Four', will play his final season for the YANKEES.  Jeter who has been the best player in Major League Baseball over the past twenty years, winning more games, appearing in more playoffs, winning more pennants and winning more World Series than any player has announced his retirement.  Jeter whose brilliant defense solidifying the middle of the YANKEE infield with far ranging defense, making countless plays look routine, and also making plays in the biggest events that no other shortstop in baseball could make but could only dream of, will play his last season at shortstop.  Jeters retirement will be celebrated by every team in every ballpark he visits throughout the season.  Jeter, who has been the most positive face of Major League Baseball during his career deserves every accolade he gets, why, because he earned it on the field with WINS.  And winning and wins has and always will be the determining factor in the greatest players of any era.  Derek Jeter has been the best baseball has had to offer for the past twenty years.

After last seasons injury plagued year where so many YANKEE players had so many injuries with so many games not played, the YANKEES hung on to a playoff run right up to the last week of the season and still posted a winning record for the season.  The YANKEE players set the record for game time lost by players for any one season in baseball history.   Over the winter, the YANKEES were active in rebuilding the team.  The injured are healthy again, the YANKEES signed several solid WIN METHOD players who wanted to wear the YANKEE uniform and now will get a chance to prove what it means to be a YANKEE.

The WIN METHOD looks for the YANKEES to win at least 93 games this season and that is minimum, but the sky is the limit and 100+ games is not impossible.  Captain Derek Jeter will lead his team to the playoffs and the new crop of YANKEES will follow the leader to the playoffs.

The YANKEE outfield is solid and deep.  The infield anchored by Jeter and Teixeira at shortstop and first base and the addition of Brian Roberts at second base and Kelly Johnson at third base will be brilliant defensively and more than adequate offensively.  Catcher Brian McCann is a major upgrade behind the plate.  The pitching staff, starting with the starting rotation is second to none in baseball, and the bullpen will be more than adequate.  There is no question that the retirement of Mariano Rivera leaves a hole, but hopefully David Robertson who has been groomed to fill Mo's closing spot will not let the team down.  Another great factor in making this 2014 YANKEE team better is the banishment from baseball of one of the biggest liars and cheats in baseball being gone.  The distraction of afraud is gone for 2014.

Don't forget WIN METHOD fans, every player on the team helps in their own way, forget individual stats, it is wins that will determine who goes to the playoffs and all we want to do is win.   So, lets get ready for the comeback ride of the 2014 season.  LETS GO YANKEES!

CC Sabathia one of five Yankee aces totally dominate Rays ace David Price who was battered by the Yankee bats and could only last five very poor innings.

Very nice start for the Yankees and CC last night. Lets keep it moving forward tonight.

Al Ashton said...

If the pitching and hitting are hot at the same time, I wouldn't think any team would want to be playing us.

Donna S, Oslo said...

Keep smiling. Tex and Drob will soon be back.

Pierre Jadot said...

It is amazing how an almost 40 year shortstop can still be as great offensively and defensively as Jeter has been this season. For twenty year Jeter has been undoubtedly and irrefutably the best player in baseball.

Andy K said...

Keep the line moving Hiroki. Lets go Yankees.

Sal Mineo said...

Cabral relieves Warren and hits Longoria and Looney. The wheels come off the wagon as Rays take 11-5 lead in the 8th.

Quay Ho said...

Cruising along with a 4-0 lead and then get clobbered. That's why they play nine innings. Series will be tied 1 game each.

Steve said...

Game over. You can't win them all. Nova tomorrow.

Yanks23245 said...

A downer loss.

Patricia Piper said...

Last nights game was a nightmare.

WIN METHOD said...

After winning five straight games a loss like last nights can be a wake up call, a dose of reality, winning isn't easy, and no one is going to give you anything. You have to earn it, everyday, every game. It is a long season. Continue to play WIN METHOD baseball, keep grinding, and in the end it will payoff with a trip to the second season.

Jerry Curcio said...

Man oh man, things can go south in a hurry.

Victor Bruno said...

Bounce back tonight guys.

Erica Johnston said...

You put everything into perspective the right way WIN METHOD. Love ya,

will-i-am said...

Thank you WIN METHOD for showing me how to defeat the stat frauds.

White Knight said...

I couldn't take the stat frauds any longer. Add in the constant bashing of Derek Jeter and I quit the talk forum scene. Great common sense.

Quay Ho said...

Would love to take this series.

Gus Papa said...

Step up Nova. Improve over last win and it will be easy tonight.

Linda Pardo said...

Thanks for the lift WIN METHOD.

Sharon/NC said...

Cory said...

Yanks down 6-0 after 4 as Nova gives up 4th HR of game.

Eddie OConnor said...

Not a good night for the good guys.

RLA said...

Nightmare 2. Final 16-1. Hey you don't lose anything by losing by 15 compared to 1. It's just a loss. Just makes the stat frauds stats that much more useless.

Mike Smith said...

Now we have to try to split the series with Nuno starting.

Jack Gordon said...

Nova had pain in elbow. Hope it was the cause of his putrid pitching and it can be remedied quickly.

johnsondc said...

Nova has torn ligament in elbow.

Yanks23245 said...

Nova will likely be gone for season. Phelps, Nuno??

Stan the Man said...

Game time, lets leave Tampa with a win.

Yanks lead 1-0 thru 5 as Nuno has done very well.

Eddie OConnor said...

Claiborne in for the 11th and does his job. Going to the 12th.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks score four for a 5-1 lead in 12th.

Eddie OConnor said...

Anna walks with bases loaded and two out, then Beltran singles up the middle for two more runs. Soriano singles to right for another run.

Stan the Man said...

Claiborne finishes it off for a 5-1 win.

Deb F said...

The Yankee bullpen pitched `12 innings today allowing just one unearned run. Great job.

Tom Loughlin said...

Can any stat fraud defend the use of their meaningless stats when one team scores 30 runs and the other team scores 21 runs over four games and the team who scores 30 runs doesn't win the series?

Domenic said...

We visit Boston with Tanaka, Pineda, and Sabathia scheduled to start.

bigbadwolf said...

Tom Loughlin said...

I have heard and dealt with stat frauds for a long time. Excuse...it was an outlier, it was an anomaly, it isn't a big enough sample, etc etc.

Dawn Ahearn said...

Day off, Tex is back and DRob is back tomorrow. Everything will be OK. We are the best and we are WIN METHOD.

Victor Grandozi said...

On our way to 15 wins in April.

Vladamir Tinzik said...

The bullpen, seven different guys, did one heck of a job yesterday.

White Knight said...

Girardi has done a masterful job with the pitching staff considering the injuries.

Benny Pake said...

Keep grinding, and keep winning.

AAA said...

Take the bosux series.

Carl Hooks said...

Hey bigbadwolf....how do the stat frauds like a team winning 16-1 one game and then the next game scoring 1 run in 12 innings and losing. Seems like a lot of meaningless runs padding some players individuals stats and deeming them useless.

bigbadwolf said...

Yes Cory, stats lie except for wins because wins will always show who is best.

Lou Lis said...

Keep the train moving forward. Do it again Tanaka.

Robert Mandell said...

Tanaka will be tested tonight pitching in the Fenway bandbox.

candycane said...

Lets take the sux to the cleaners.

Yanks23245 said...

2-0 Yankees after 1.

Steve said...

Yanks lead 4-0 after 3 and it could easily be 10-0 if not for 2 double plays hit into.

Sal Mineo said...

Yankees pound Lester in the 5th and knock him out of the game while taking an 8-2 lead.

RLA said...

With Tanaka in control Yanks lead 8-2 after 7,

Steve said...

Betances finishes game off for Yankees and Tanaka for 8-3 win.

Cory said...

Final 8-3 win.

YankeeMike said...

Tanka masterful again. Bullpen gets big rest.

Dan vans said...

12-8 in first 20 games. That rat makes the playoffs.

johnsondc said...

Tanaka it appears is for real. Unflappable, confident, capable, and WIN METHOD makes for greatness.

Chad Greene said...

Pineda on stage tonight in Boston. Keep the line moving Michael.

White Knight said...

Jeter has an 11 game hitting streak and playing great defense.

Dane Ostroff said...

Wins and only wins determine the best.

Harry Stavris said...

Keep hitting guys and keep winning.

Donna S, Oslo said...

Lets go Yankees.

evan donohue said...

We can take this series tonight. Lets do it.

johnny said...

The Yankees are the best.

AAA said...

Shut them down Pineda.

Patricia Piper said...

Take the sux to the cleaners again.

candycane said...

Game time, Yankee time, Win time.

johnsondc said...

Pineda doesn't seem sharp in first inning. sux having some good swings, have scored one already with two men on and one out. sux getting beaucoup breaks. Inning over sux up 2-0.

Steve said...

Yanks down 2-0 after 1.

Stan the Man said...

Pineda ejected for using pine tar in second inning. Phelps coming in.

will-i-am said...

The sux are desperate and grasping at straws. The will pay the consequences.

Steve said...

Yanks down 4-0 after 3.

Stan the Man said...

Still down 4-0 after 5.

Steve said...

Yanks down 4-1 after 7.

Tom Loughlin said...

Yankees down 4-1 with two innings left. Rally time. Lets go Yankees.

Sal Mineo said...

Final. Yanks go down 5-1. Bats were pathetic tonight.

Steve said...

Yanks lose 5-1.

Yankeeforever said...

sux win 5-1. Rubber game tomorrow night with CC.

Raji Mahood said...

CC tonight in the all important rubber game.

Ernie Hawke said...

Will and how long will Pineda be suspended? Should miss at least one turn. He really did not use a foreign substance. Pine tar is everywhere in baseball.

bigbadwolf said...

No matter what they decide about a suspension, the issue of pine tar being used by a pitcher should be addressed by MLB. Just like a pitcher allowed to go to his mouth in cold weather, the same may be said for pine tar and decided before the game by the umpires.

Quay Ho said...

CC on stage to be the man. He has to be able to pitch well in games like this.

Andy K said...

Hope we hit better than last night.

Warren Hammond said...

Win tonight and we take the first two series of the season from the bosux.

bigbadwolf said...

MLB in all its incompetence has suspended Pineda for 10 games. As WIN METHOD would say, BS.

Chad Greene said...

Maybe a good thing Pineda shut down. Gives him that much more arm strength into the late season drive.

Mike Smith said...

Yanks take 1-0 lead after 1.

Alex Antonius said...

Yanks get one in first. Beltran scores on Soriano double.

candycane said...

Yanks up 4-0 after 2.

Dan Evans said...

Yankees lead 7-2 after 3.

Eddie OConnor said...

CC with lead is not bearing down.

Fred Slube said...

First scoreless inning, 7-2 Yanks after four.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks up 7-2 after 4.

Gus Papa said...

Yanks up 7-2 after 5.

Hank Bauer said...

CC with 90 pitches thru five innings.

Phil Jenkins said...

CC finishes the sixth and leads 7-2.

Steve said...

Yanks blow it open in the 7th and lead 12-2.

Stan the Man said...

Put this baby to bed. Yanks take series from sux. 5-2 in first 7 games with sux.

Sal Mineo said...

Shane Greene come in for the 7th in his first MLB appearance and surrenders 3 runs with Warren coming in to get the final 2 outs.

Steve said...

12-5 Yanks after 7.

Cory said...

The sux and their Ferrel manager will pay dearly for their whinning and sniveling.

Stan the Man said...

Warren does the job again. 13-5 Yankees after 8.

Steve said...

Robertson pitches 1,2,3 9th. yanks win it 14-5.

will-i-am said...

Final 14-5 win. Yanks take another series.

Steve said...

when I peruse some of the Yankee talk forums I am astounded just how dumb some fans are. I understand that not all are Yankee fans and just post there to get a rise and try to troll the real Yankee fans. That is why I love this blog so much. Almost every fan here is positive and intelligent. this is a great Yankee blog and a fun place to post. I love knocking the fools who think their individual stats mean anything and those who don't think Jeter is great offensively and defensively.

William Mensom said...

Jetes made an error last night. It seems throughout his career when he has made an error it rarely ever costs the team a game. Maybe two or three times over twenty years. Jeters defense overall has been exceptional and he has won more playoff games alone with his defense than games he has lost over twenty years with a bad play. Jeter, simply has been the best defensive shortstop in the game for the past twenty years, despite the fraudulent phoney useless defensive metrics contrived by some of the dumbest people in the world of baseball.

bigbadwolf said...

I fully concur. This is the place for great Yankee fans who know only winning determines the best.

Deb F said...

Guys, you all are so right on. There are none so blind as those who will not see. We are in the right place at the right time to witness in Derek Jeter one of the TRUE greatest players in the history of baseball.

Carl Hooks said...

Kuroda tonight in first of three as the Angels come to town.

johnsondc said...

Lets take this series at home and keep moving forward as we celebrate the last season of the greatest baseball player for the past 20 years.

Sean Smith said...

Kuroda needs to give us a very good six or seven innings tonight.

Victor Grandozi said...

I've been posting here for many years and after being through the forum BS, I know this is the best of the best Yankee places to be.

Gus Papa said...

We here at WIN METHOD are the thorn in the side of the stat frauds. They are afraid to come here because they are slain with logic, reasoning and common sense. Their garbage doesn't fly here so they stick with their own ilk of fools.

Alex Antonious said...

Great game last night, keep the wins coming.

Vladamir Tinzik said...

Scheduled to pitch this weekend. Kuroda, Nuno, Tanaka.

Nick Polito said...

Love to take the opening game of any series,

Andrew J said...

Get back on track Hiroki. Big win tonight.

Linda Rice said...

I'm with you guys. Individual stats are relatively meaningless, particularly if they are used to judge between players.

Jen Vitter said...

Putting it simply, stat frauds are garbage.

NJ YANKEE said...

Lets go Yankees.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 3-0 after 2.

will-i-am said...

Kuroda looks like he is throwing batting practice. 5 runs and 7 hits in 3 innings.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 5-0 after 3.

RLA said...

Now down 8-0 after 5.

Cory said...

Yanks down 8-1 after 6.

Jerry Curcio said...

Still not playing with any real consistently.

Nick Polito said...

Yanks on the wrong side of a 12-1 score,

Todd Starnes said...

The Angels hit the 13 run pool last night with a 13-1 walloping they handed the Yankees.

Teena/Bronx said...

Last nights late rain is moving out and I will be going to game today, first one of season. Go Yankees.

Erica Nuyens said...

Lets all vote Jeter to be the starting shortstop for the All Star game. Love ya, WIN METHOD.

Dan Evans said...

Can Nuno stop the Angle bats. We need a big effort from him and a bigger effort from the lineup.

Linda Pardo said...

Get us a win Teena.

Frank Sergi said...

Will need to win these last two games to take this series. Step it up guys.
