WIN METHOD 2015...A NEW ERA

This is the hardest blog post I have ever done.  The retirement of all time great and the best player in Major League Baseball for the past twenty seasons, Derek Jeter has hit me hard.  The best player and one of the very first players drafted by Mr.S. (rip) and the YANKEES is gone and the hole he leaves offensively and defensively as the best shortstop in baseball is enormous.  However, we must move on.




The YANKEES for 2015 will be fine and are reloading.  With a very deep and talented starting rotation, albeit a starting rotation with much to prove, do not be surprised if this team performs far above expectations of the pundits and so called talking head experts.  Didi Gregorius has been tabbed to replace Jeter at shortstop, which in reality can never be done.  Didi needs to be himself, do what he does best and must not let the comparisons to Jeter get to him.  Chase Headley has been given the third base position and that may be one of the best moves the YANKEES have made in the off season.   The basic starting team will be McCann c. Teixeira 1b. Drew 2b. Headley 3b. Gregorius ss. Gardner lf. Elsbury cf. and Beltran rf.  The YANKEES have a boatload of very promising minor leaguers, some of which who will undoubtedly be heard from over the 2015 season.


During the off season the YANKEES lost closer David Robertson, but have gotten better and deeper in the bullpen with the maturation of Betances and the signing of Miller.  The closer spot has not been decided and possibly no one will be named.   From start to finish the YANKEE pitching staff will be exemplary and carry the team a long way.  The lineup on the other hand will have to come together and several players will have to step up their game over last seasons effort.   The loss of Jeter, the leader, the captain, will leave a gaping hole that will have to filled by everyone in the lineup stepping up their performance.


Personally, I had an almost non-stop off season with interviews and evaluations.   By my choice I am now on a year to year proprietary deal with the Steinbrenner sons.  But they are not Mr.S.   Hopefully, they will make the decisions that are best for the team, the fans, and winning.


I've noticed the stat frauds are almost non-existent here anymore.  You guys and gals have done a great job beating them off, refuting and disproving their garbage man made formulas that are meaningless and useless.  WINS and WINNING will always define the best players and teams.  I will try to post more often this season and glad you are still here and growing the best baseball blog in the world, the WIN METHOD.


To conclude............LETS GO YANKEES.

It isn't just Gregorious, no one is producing at an acceptable level or when it counts.

johnsondc said...

Come on guys. Wake up. Get your head in the game. WIN METHOD. Play for the team to win, not for yourself. afraud is a cancer, even as he smiles and makes nice.

Mike Smith said...

We really do need a win.

Frank Sergi said...

Show us something Masahiro.

will-i-am said...

Tanaka time. Lets go Yankees.

candycane said...

YES, YRS, YES! The lineup explodes.
afraud with a bases loaded double for 3 runs, followed by Headley 2 run HR, followed by Drew solo HR. 7 run first inning for a 7-0 lead.

Cal Fuerst said...

afraud delivers when it counts. More more.

Alex Antonius said...

it took a week into the season, and is sure nice to see. Seven run first inning.

Stan the Man said...

7-0 Yanks after 1.

Tom Loughlin said...

Yanks lead 10-3 after 4.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

Tanaka completes five leaving ahead 10-4.

Ivan Norrionkos said...

Everything is falling in for the Yankees tonight. Seeing eye grounders, pop fly singles.

candycane said...

And the beat goes on in the 6th.

NJYANKEE said...

13-4 Yanks after 6.

jimbo said...

A laugher tonite. We needed one.

Guy Padikian said...

Finally a win for a starter.

Augie Defonce said...

After last nights much need win the Yanks head for their first road trip to Baltimore today.

Jen Vitter said...

3 night games in Baltimore starting tonight. Pineda, CC, Eovaldi scheduled to start.

Wayne Littlebear said...

Next goal, win a series,

White Knight said...

When you watch shortstops play defense, you can see just how great Derek Jeter was defensively. The best there was.

Steve said...

The irrelevance of stats and the opinion of the stat frauds. The stats, the Yankees out scored, out hit, and out pitched the bosux this weekend. But the one and only stat that counts and determines the winners and the losers, shows what actually happened in the real world. The Yanks lost the series 2 games to 1. Go sniff some more glue stat frauds.

bigbadwolf said...

I see johnsondc posted at pinstripealley. Great post that should ruffle the feathers of stat frauds.

johnsondc said...

Hey wolfie, pinstripealley deleted my post already. They can't defend their lies so they make believe an opposing opinion to theirs does not exist. That is exactly why the stat frauds don't come here. Their lies are exposed here and they look like fools. Thank God for the WIN METHOD.

Steve said...

Same old same old with the forums. Classless and gutless.

Stanley chin said...

Would love to keep hitting in Baltimore and win the series.

Dan Evans said...

Yep, the frauds hate when they are told that wins are the most important factor in determining the best.

Cory said...

Yanks down 2-1 after 3.

candycane said...

Gus Papa said...

Drew grand slam in 7th gives Yanks 6-4 lead.

Stan the Man said...

6-5 Yankees after 7.

Steve said...

6-5 final, the Yankeeeeeeeees winnn.

AAA said...

Pineda the win, Betances the hold, miller the save. 6-5 win.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Drew HR when it counts for the win.

Victor Grandozi said...

Big come from behind win. Nothing like a few runs and clutch hits.

Tony Gigante said...

A very nice win, but then again most wins are nice.

johnsondc said...

A great WHEN it counts hit from Drew last night. That is WIN METHOD baseball. Three guys get on base and then the biggest hit to WIN the game.

Warren Hammond said...

Nice win, nice to see the fighting back and as usual the solid work of the bullpen.

Erica Johnston said...

Slowly but surely. Ivan Nova to throw live batting practice today.
Slow and easy Ivan, slow and easy. We can wait.

Vladmir Tinzik said...

CC tonight. would be a nice game to win and build on.

Glen Busch said...

Hoping CC can go seven full solid innings tonight.

Hector Lopez said...

Pineda gave up five runs and won. The win is the goal. And it take a team to win.

Todd Pearson said...

Much rain in the Baltimore area. If game is played, it will be on a wet field and with intermittent showers.

Sal Mineo said...

CC struggling. Yanks down 3-0 after 4.

Tom Loughlin said...

CC with a decent effort. Goes 7 full innings allowing 4 runs , but Yanks lose 4-3.

Sal Mineo said...

Yanks lose it 4-3.

will-i-am said...

Jeter if he played tonight would be a bitter shortstop than what the Yankees now have, both offensively and defensively.

Gary Shrieber said...

Good effort from CC, unfortunately not good enough without enough support. Seven innings is a big help for the bullpen. Eovaldi tonight with a win would be big.

Raul Vasquez said...

Is afraud headed to the Interstate?

Victor Bruno said...

A good game for Eovaldi to shine.

Karl R said...

Take this series.

Patricia Piper said...

Get your first Yankee win Eovaldi.

candycane said...

Yankees quickly down 1-0 after 1.

candycane said...

Yankees quickly down 1-0 after 1.

Stan the Man said...

3-2 Yanks after 5. I don't ever recall so many pitches by each starter over five innings.

Jack Bauer said...

Wheels fall off wagon as Yankee bullpen Carpenter and Wilson blow lead in the 6th allowing 4 runs and Yanks now trail 6-3.

Quay Ho said...

Another series lost and 3-6 to start the season. Not good, but hopefully still early.

Carl Hooks said...

On to Detroit for four game series. Hope we don't lose this series.

Sharon/NC said...

By golly, we need to at least split with the Tigs.

RLA said...

Carl, Sharon. Yanks go to Tampa for 3 games then to Detroit.

Hope the day off helps.

Lou Lis said...

Warren makes his second start of the season tonight in Tampa.

WIN METHOD said...

64 years ago today, one of the greatest baseball players of all time, Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle played in the first game of his career. Mickey was my first hero and I met and talked to him one on one many times. The "Commerce Comet" gave me a game used glove and bat in the late 50's that I still have today.

johnsondc said...

Nice WIN METHOD. Mantle was surely one of the best of the best.

Eddie OConnor said...

Todays win could have been a bit easier with a hit when it mattered a lot.

KevMac said...

Four with the Tigers starting today. CC, Eovaldi, Warren, Tanaka.

Alex Antonious said...

My goal. At least a split with the Tigers. Winning the series would be a big step forward.

Zack Norris said...

After the Tigers we have three with the Mets at home. Should be an exciting week.

Gus Papa said...

Play WIN METHOD baseball, play one game at a time.

Chen Cho said...

Steve said...

Yanks with a tough 2-1 loss.

CC complete game but 2-1 loss.

The most dreaded of loses. The one run loss in a very well pitched game and not being able to get the extra run or two WHEN it counted.

Bright spot...CC's effort. Dark spot...the 2-1 loss.

Tough tough loss, some are just heartbreaking.

Drew almost comes close to looking as good defensively as Jeter when at shortstop, but looks far better than Gregorius.

Warren Hammond said...

Adam Warren goes against David Price in tonight game. Would be a nice game for the Yankees to win.

Warren will need to be at his best. And several runs of support won't hurt.

Yankeeforever said...

One game at a time.

johnny said...

Lets go Yankees.

Lori Kelley said...

Would love to win this game tonight.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Six run first inning for Yanks. But it ain't over till it's over.
