WIN METHOD 2016 SEASON -- Only wins and winning determine the best.

The 2016 Major League Baseball season starts today.  The New York YANKEES first game will be tomorrow in New York against the Houston Astros.    The starting rotation has been decided, the twenty-five man roster has been decided, and tomorrow the drive for the playoffs will begin.  This is not fantasy baseball, played by stat fraud fools who live by meaningless individual statistics, this is real baseball where winning is determined by what all players on each team contribute to help their team win the most often.   These contributions are measured by wins and players producing at the right time, when it matters, and not by how much or how many stats they produce for themselves as their team fails. 


The injury bug has bitten the YANKEES, as it has bitten every team in one way or another.  First baseman Greg Bird is likely out for the season.  Pitcher Brian Mitchell may be out approximately three months, and pitcher Andrew Miller with a broken bone in his non throwing wrist may have been the luckiest, and will lose no playing time. 


Several YANKEE WIN METHOD youngsters are blooming and growing and are on the roster to start the season, and several more are on the near horizon and will start their season in the minors.
Several years ago the WIN METHOD made a concerted effort to find pitching talent each season and the YANKEES drafted many of these youngsters.   The time is here for some of these youngsters and the time for others is just around the corner. 


The YANKEE management led by the brilliant dealing of General Manager Brian Cashman have added several new players to this seasons roster and have deepened the bench for 2016.   Also, three very possible future stars are so near.  Catcher Gary Sanchez, right fielder Aaron Judge, and shortstop Jorge Mateo are getting closer to the major league roster every day.  Playing regularly in the minors right now is best for them and their development.  But they will soon be heard from.


Remember fans, it is a long season, there will be ups and downs, and as always only wins and winning will be the determining factor on which teams earn playoffs spots and go on to the second season.    Let the stat fraud fools play their fantasy games.   We will play for real baseball and root for our team to win and root for the contributions of each player to help our team win. 


LETS GO YANKEES

Steve said...

The younger Yanks are coming and will lead the way.

Carl Hooks said...

The young home grown relievers and starters right now and in the next year or two are going to be the key to success.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

One game at a time, one win at a time.

Wayne Littlebear said...

Just have to produce when it counts most. Both the pitchers and hitters.

Sean Smith said...

Also win each series one at a time.

Asoka Patel said...

first post. Yankee fan from India.

Teena/Bronx said...

Likely chance of rain in NYC for tomorrows opener.

Logic Lover said...

lol at this blog

jimbo said...

Then they play the opener on Tuesday.

bigbadwolf said...

Hi Logic Lover, great isn't it.

will-i-am said...

I waited this long for baseball, one more day won't be the end of the world.

candycane said...

Yankee 25 man roster consists of 12 pitchers and 12 fielders and 1 who can't do either, nor run.

Chad Greene said...

Very nice candycane, very nice.

johnsondc said...

Welcome Asoka. Post your thoughts and views often.

Eddie OConnor said...

Lets go Yankees. Lets win it all.

So glad baseball is here. Watching the Mets/Royals right now. Go royals.

Best of luck to the Yankees.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Winning is what matters.

Ty Keel said...

Four hours to game time. Lets go Yankees.

Teena/Bronx said...

Raining now in the Bronx and the forecast is for showers and rain on and off. Looking iffy for playing.

Warren Hammond said...

Teena, our weather girl, when it matters.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Todays game has officially been canceled.

Saul Irving said...

Just have to wait another day.

Arthur Addison said...

I get lucky. Couldn't take off today but am off tomorrow.

Zhaire said...

Lets win game one.

Cal Fuerst said...

Why doesn't MLB try to start all the games to open the season in the domed and southern ballparks?

Alex Antonius said...

Cal. that would require some thought.

Steve said...

Cooler weather slated for tomorrow, but dry.

Gene A said...

I'm chomping at the bit.

Sharon/NC said...

Just play WIN METHOD baseball.

Artie S said...

Would love to win tomorrow and beat one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Linda Pardo said...

Lets try again today.

Erica Johnston said...

Todays the day. We open the season.

Teena/Bronx said...

Temperature in NY right now 30 with wind chill of 20. Not really baseball weather, but the show must go on.

NJYANKEE said...

Hicks starting in left in place of Gardner today.

Benny Pake said...

Would be great to win today.

Carl Hooks said...

Half hour to first pitch.

Domenic said...

Lets go Yankees, lets go Masahiro.

Ernie Hassel said...

The Stadium is packed to the gills. Lets go Yankees.

Fred Slube said...

Nothing changes, the black hole hits into a DP in his first at bat to kill off a rally.

Stan the Man said...

0-0 after 1.

candycane said...

Yanks lead 2-0 after 2.

Steve said...

The brilliance of Joe Girardi. Girardi bats Castro 8th, to the dismay of almost all stat frauds, so Castro in his first Yankee at bat comes up with 2 men on and delivers a 2 rbi double.

Sal Mineo said...

Yanks up 2-1 after 4.

Carl Hooks said...

Yanks 2-1 after 5. Tanaka pretty good stuff.

Deb F said...

2-2 after 6.

Gus Papa said...

Shreve in game for Yanks in 7th. 2-2 score.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Betances blows our first game of the season.

Victor Grandozi said...

Pineda tonight. Lets even the series.

reinvaldez said...

No no no no bueno yesterday.

Guy Padikian said...

Gotta win the first one.

Hank Bauer said...

Really don't want to lose 5 or 6 in a row to start the season.

Ivan Norrionkos said...

We gave up runs yesterday because of unforced errors.

Tommy Lee said...

Don't forget, the team is handicapped, having to play the black hole afraud.

Sammythecat said...

Hope Pineda throws a great game tonight.

Sal Mineo said...

Yankees score six times in first inning for a 6-1 lead.

candycane said...

Yanks up 6-1 after 1.

Saul Irving said...

Pineda crashes and burns in 2nd giving up grand slam. Yanks up 6-5 coming to bat in 2nd.

Saul Irving said...

Yanks counter with 3 run HR by Castro. Yanks 9-5 after 2.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks lead 9-5 after 2 in a wild one.

YankeeMike said...

12-6 Yanks after 5.

Nick Polito said...

Yanks up 13-6 after 6.

Steve said...

Nova goes four innings of scoreless ball for the save. Yanks win 16-6.

candycane said...

Final Yanks win 13-6.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeeeee Yankeeeeeeeeeeeeeees Winnnnnnnnnnn.

Phil Jenkins said...

Eovaldi today for the series win. Lets go Yankees.

Victor Btuno said...

Would be good to take first series of season. Hope we didn't waste too many runs yesterday.

Al Ashton said...

Castro has been great. Great deal by Cashman.

Sammythecat said...

Pineda did not pitch well. Hopefully Eovaldi will be better.

Teena/Bronx said...

Heavy rains approaching. Does not look good for a game today.

Teena/Bronx said...

Update, storms are moving very fast. Have had heavy rains. There may be a window to play game if field is safe enough.

YankeeMike said...

Todays Yankee lineup posted. Same as last nights.

Domenic said...

Yankees trail 3-2 after 3.

Steve said...

5-5 after 5. Eovaldi out after 5. Did not pitch well, but good enough to keep his team in the game.

Stan the Man said...

Yankees take 8-5 lead after 7 on Teixeira 3 run HR.

Sal Mineo said...

8-5 Yanks after 7.

Steve said...

Yankee bullpen holds the fort and earns the win. Yates, Shreve, Betances, 6th, 7th, and 8th scoreless innings as the Yankees take an 8-5 lead batting in the 8th. Miller likely for the 9th.

Gus Papa said...

Yankees win 8-5.

jimbo said...

Miller struggles but puts game in the books for a win.

candycane said...

Final Yanks win 8-5.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeeeee Yankeeeeeeeeeeeees Winnnnnnnnnnn.

johnsondc said...

The YANKEES defeated the Astros this afternoon, winning 8-5, to win their first series of the season. Nathan Eovladi pitched five innings allowing five runs and left the game with the score tied, keeping his team in the game. The YANKEE bullpen of Yates in the 6th, Shreve in the 7th, Betances in the 8th, and Miller in the 9th earned the win for Shreve, the hold for Betances, and the save for Miller, with four scoreless innings.

Tom Loughlin said...

Louie Louie starts tomorrow in Detroit opener.

Paul Hirschman said...

So far so good guys. Lets win another series.

Vladmir Tinzik said...

Bullpen has been great and can only get better with Chapman suspension over next month.

Deb F said...

Louie Louie, be the man. Be the ace.

Sean Smith said...

Interesting lineup today. McCann, Beltran, and afraud all not in lineup.

John Hartnett said...

Yanks trail 1-0 after 2.

candycane said...

Yanks down 1-0 after 3.

Sal Mineo said...

Yanks down 3-0 after 5.

candycane said...

Yanks down 4-0 after 7.

Sal Mineo said...

Yankees go down 4-0. You don't score, you can't win.

AAA said...

Yanks go down 4-0. Just 4 hits.

Steve said...

Four games. The two best pitched games by the starters, the team lost. the two bad games by the starters, the team won. Pretty much divines why only wins matter, over any other stat the frauds espouse.

Sharon/NC said...

CC on tap this afternoon in Detroit, weather permitting. It is going to be cold and CC does not do well in cold weather.

Claude Akins said...

Light snow falling in Detroit right now.

Linda Pardo said...

Well CC will get his chance to prove himself again.

Andrew J said...

If CC does not perform well, I wonder how long a leash he will have.

Bob Behan said...

2-0 Yankees after 2.

Stan the Man said...

6-2 Yankees after 4.

White Knight said...

8-2 Yanks after 5.

Tom Loughlin said...

CC first Yankee pitcher to go six innings this season. Leads 6-2 after 6. One bad inning when he walked three, two scored on the first hit in the game he gave up.

Stan the Man said...

Final. 8-4 win for CC and Yanks.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeeeeeee Yankeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees Winnnnnnnnnnnn.

Yanks23245 said...

Shreve, Betances and Miller close it out for an 8-4 win.

RLA said...

Nice win and hopefully a confidence builder for CC.

Walt Bellamy said...

Really, CC had just one bad inning. And that was after the Yankees had a long inning putting up four runs to take a 6-0 lead. Walked 3 of the 4 he gave up in the game.

Tim Hergenraeder said...

Lets take this series and move on. Lets go Yankees.

Dan Evans said...

Tomorrow is the despicable espn Sunday night game. A night game in Detroit no less. How stupid.

Teena/Bronx said...

Yep, it's 8am Sunday morning and I (we) have to wait 12 hours for our teams baseball game. May espn rot forever.

Andy K said...

The worst is the talking heads at espn are the worst of the worst.

Cal Fuerst said...

To win tonight and take the first tow series of the season would be a big positive.

Boston Yankee fan said...

While every team plays baseball the Yankees and Tigers wait and wait and wait to play a game for espn, the dregs of baseball information.

Hugh Frazier said...

Snowing in Detroit right now. The game is still 8 hours away.

Yanks23245 said...

Is it 8 oclock yet.

Glen Corbett said...

Looking at the weather maps, I would think it would be very hard to play tonight.

Gus Papa said...

Tonights game has been mercifully canceled. Rot in hell espn.

Eddie OConnor said...

No game is good for me. I can go to bed and have no problem getting to work on time.

Carl Hooks said...

No game today and an off day tomorrow. Plenty of rest for the team.

Gene A said...

Get na off day because of icy, snowy, rainy, cold weather and your in Detroit. What a downer.

Marty Hall said...

You don't dare set foot outside your hotel.

Warren Hammond said...

Off day today and then three games in Toronto starting tomorrow. They have a roof.

Swen Jorgenson said...

When you play in the north this early in the season there is always the chance of bad weather. The teams with roofs are nice stops along your route knowing there will be no cancellations.

Wayne Littlebear said...

My assessment of the Yankee team after five games. No real negatives. So far so good.

silverstorm said...

The rotation gets nudged one spot. Tanaka, Pineda, and Eovaldi go against the Jays.

Billy Tedder said...

Tanaka goes tonight at Toronto.

KevMac said...

The Yanks have lost the first game of both series played.

Saul Irving said...

Taking this series would be making an early statement.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Lets sweep.

AAA said...

Sweeping is the goal, but I can live with two of three.

Sharon/NC said...

Start the series on the right foot guys.

Stan the Man said...

Game time, lets go Yankees.

Sal Mineo said...

Yanks trail 2-1 after 3. Tanaka over 70 pitches in 3 innings.

Steve said...

2-2 after 6.

Yankeeforever said...

All even at 2 thru 6.

Mike Smith said...

Yanks up 3-2 after 7. It's the bullpens game.

Stan the Man said...

Final, Yankees win 3-2.

Yankeeforever said...

Bullpen does it again for the win. Barbato 6th, Shreve 7th, Betances 8th, Miller 9th.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeeeeee Yankeeeeeeeeeeeeees Winnnnnnnnnnn.

Fred Slube said...

Mike, it was the bullpens game and they did their job. Good call.

Stanley Chin said...

One win at a time. Keep grinding.

Steve said...

WIN METHOD rules.

Cory said...

Headley had one heck of a game last night. Several brilliant defensive plays.

Lori Kelly said...

Great start to the Blue Jay series last night. Don't let up, do it again tonight.

Izy Hernandez said...

Pineda tonight. He has too much good stuff to not be dominating the way he should. Put it together Mike.

Yanks23245 said...

Many guys did outstanding jobs last for the win. That is what the WIN METHOD is all about. One person means little. Many persons means a lot. I agree, Headley played outstanding defense last night and so far this season.

Steve said...

Was reading some posts of the brain dead at a baseball forum I posted at and was ousted because I upset the brain dead with a combined IQ of 16. They are whining and crying already. Complaining about almost everything and making up trades of several different players. Thank God for this blog and common sense.

Mark Wagoner said...

No let up tonight guys. Pitch and hit, win as a team, everyone contributes. Lets go Yankees.

bigbadwolf said...

Steve, many here have been down that road. Stat frauds when challenged with logic and common sense, lash out any way they can in the worst ways possible. Many are a product of the dumbing down of America.

Victor Grandozi said...

Mow them down big Mike. Lets go Yankees.

NJYANKEE said...

Steve, wolfie, you guys are much to kind to the know nothings you are talking about.

Barbara Steele said...

No score after one.

candycane said...

Yanks down 1-0 after 4.

Bud Light said...

Yankees down 3-1 after 6.

Steve said...

Yanks trail 3-1 after 6. Pineda has been decent.

Sarah said...

This blog was more fun when it was about baseball, now it's more about name-calling and ridiculing others...

RLA said...

Yanks cut Jay lead to 3-2 in 8th and then Nova comes in to pitch 8th and throws batting practice being hit hard by every Jay batter. Gives up 4 runs to give Jays 7-2 lead after 8.

candycane said...

Yanks down 7-2 after 8.

Steve said...

Sarah, I see the truth hurts and you can't handle the truth.

Stan the Man said...

Final 7-2 loss.

Nick Polito said...

Better to lose by 5 than 1. It's still just one loss.

Ty Keel said...

Eovaldi goes in the rubber game tomorrow. Lets win it.

Sarah said...

Steve-
What truth are you referring to that I can't handle? The truth is that you are acting in an extremely pretentious matter and taking the focus away from the Yankees and baseball. Your gossiping about posters in other blogs and how much smarter you are then them is bush league and childish, to say the least, and takes away from what really matters, the Yankees march to another championship. Hope they take the final game of the series tomorrow!

YankeeMike said...

Good game last night, but didn't get a hit or two WHEN it would have mattered most. A game that could have been won.

AAA said...

Lets go Yankees take this series.

Steve said...

Sarah, what I am talking about is not gossip, it is fact that many here have been through. Never suggested I was smarter than posters in other forums, I stated that almost every poster here is smarter than them. Banning people is bush league, childish, and done by people who can't handle common sense and real baseball. They are better off left to play with themselves.

Erica Johnston said...

afraud should not be on the roster.

Brian Cowley said...

I second that Erica.

Tony Gigante said...

We need for one of our pitchers to throw a gem. All are capable, but it would be really nice to get 7 innings of shutout ball from a starter.

Wilsonsway said...

Taking this series is a nice step forward.

Hugh Frazier said...

Lets score early and put up several runs.

Billy Tedder said...

Hugh, most important, win.

johnny said...

Time for a win.

Sal Mineo said...

2-0 Yanks after 4.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 4-2 after 7.

will-i-am said...

Final 4-2 loss.

candycane said...

Eovaldi goes 6 2/3 but loses 4-2.

Peter Raines said...

Louie Louie goes tonight and he faces the dancing queen.

Sol Hormel said...

Would be very nice for Louie Louie to best the dancing queen tonight.

William said...

Why is Nathan Karns the dancing queen...?

Greg Stone said...

afraud not in lineup tonight, that's a plus.

Sol Hormel said...

My mistake. I thought Felix 'dancing queen' Hernandez was starting tonight.

Phil Jenkins said...

Sol, I say Hernandez listed also. I thought he was starting tonight. I guess CC goes against him tomorrow.

jimbo said...

4-4 after 8 games. Take this series and move forward.

Paul Hirschman said...

Severino time.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Yanks up 1-0 after 3.

johnsondc said...

Yankees trail 3-1 after 5 as batters fail time after time WHEN it would count.

Stan the Man said...

Yanks down 4-1 after 6 and leave the bases loaded failing to produce when it mattered.

Warren Hammond said...

Yanks go down 7-1 and played lackadaisical baseball. Did not produce one time when it would have mattered most. Go look at the box score and see the runners left on base by almost everyone in the lineup.

Teena/Bronx said...

One heck of a lousy game last night. U_G_L_Y.

Sol Hormel said...

I have it fight today. CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees against the Mariners Felix 'dancing queen' Hernandez.

NJYANKEE said...

Wake up guys.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Did anyone see the camera shot of the dancing queen during last nights game?

Cole/NJ said...

Lets see what CC brings to the table today.

Ron Francis said...

More important, lets see what the hitters bring today.

Brian Cowley said...

0-0 after 1. Yanks leave 2 men on in 1st.

AAA said...

0-0 after 2. Yanks leave bases loaded in 2nd. The pendulum will eventually swing our way.
