WIN METHOD --- FINAL 2016 RUN -- UPDATES - LOOKING BACK

This post is going to have quite a bit of news in it.  We will look back at several revelations, the draft, the up and coming stars, the future.  This is going to be a pretty long post, fans.

First off, I think it would be a good thing for most of you to go back to the beginning and reread all the blog posts.  I think reading the WIN METHOD  blog from the beginning is a must for any and all new comers here.  It will give you a great perspective on the WIN METHOD and just how great it is.

Now here is a post I made ten years ago on a YANKEE thread in a baseball talk forum.  Of course I got bounced from that forum, one of so many.  Bounced by people who cannot accept challenge to their foul, corrupt, misleading, and false stats.  Trying to get the WIN METHOD philosophy out was a challenge when having to deal with so many very ignorant people.  However I found many people at all the forums who wanted something more about baseball than just bad statistics.  Why didn't the players with great individual stats help lead their team to wins.  What was wrong.  I got several suggestions to create a blog about the WIN METHOD.  Create the blog and we will come I was told.
I created the WIN METHOD blog two years after the post I will now insert here, and the WIN METHOD blog was started eight years ago.  Nothing is edited and the following appears here now just as it was posted ten years ago.

""September 2006.
To discuss the WIN METHOD you must put aside your previous beliefs about what determines the qualities of a ‘best player’. The WIN METHOD is used by only one team in baseball. The WIN METHOD is designed to select players who meet the qualifications of the WIN METHOD and the needs at any given time of the team. The purpose of the WIN METHOD is to find players who MUST want to play for the team. They MUST want to win the World Series. And they MUST put individual achievements as secondary goals. The one on one interview process asks many questions, the answers given may then bring forth other questions. The WIN METHOD more than anything, is interested in getting into the psyche of the player. I have interviewed players and they don’t even know why they are being interviewed. These interviews have consistently gotten the best results. It is similar to you being interviewed for a job, only you do not know it. We interview soon to be free agents, sometimes as far as a year or more ahead of their free agency. College prospects are interviewed, prospective minor leaguers, and players in different countries. The inroads made in Japan in the past two years will reap benefits for a long time.

Getting to the nitty gritty. The WIN METHOD nor I make any deals or trades or any signings. The WIN METHOD is an evaluation tool as to whether or not a player will help the team succeed. NOT INDIVIDUAL SUCCESS BUT TEAM SUCCESS. Not every player signed has been a WIN METHOD selection. As you gentleman feel, there are people with the YANKEES who feel the same. Stats, stats, stats. I have gotten many reasons why a player does not want to be a YANKEE. My question right after that gets some fantastic responses. The question I ask is “Tell me why you don’t want to win and be the best.”
Think of the WIN METHOD as a scout giving a report on the players he is scouting. 

The entire idea of believing in the WIN METHOD is a matter of personal psychology. Do you want to believe a player is best because of what he achieves for himself or best for what he achieves for the team. But a team is 25 players. Yes, and when they win they are the best 25 players, be it for a game, a series, a month, a season. Being a baseball fan for over 50+ years, preceding free agency, when players where signed by scouting or acquired by trades, I often wondered why did a player achieve more when he was traded to one team or another as compared to who he was playing for. As time passed I realized players achieved more because they where in situations they preferred and thrived on. Others did worse because they where not in situations they where satisfied with. I started talking to players relatively consistently in the seventies after I met with Mr.S. He helped fund my work.
In the nineties I and the WIN METHOD where ready. Mr.S. and I made a ten year deal, which was just recently renewed for ten more years. Getting back to basics. The WIN METHOD became most feasible with the onset of players being allowed to sign with whomever they wished. The magic words “whomever they wished”. Some poster in a recent thread stated Pedro Martinez would never play for the YANKEES and would rather play on the dirt fields in the Dominican Republic. Fine, then ask yourselves, why on earth would the YANKEES want to sign him? Why would any team want to sign him if he would not be in a situation he was happy with? Getting to our psychological difference in looking at players. The statisticians and the stat fans feel the best players are the ones who attain the gaudiest of individual stats, whatever they may be. And it makes no difference if the player or his team wins. Now the difference, the WIN METHOD people believe that winning is why baseball is played and winning makes for who is best. Right, the TEAM wins. That is the point and the goal of the game. NOT INDIVIDUAL SUCCESS. The team consists of 25 players and the 25 best players win the World Series every year. The WIN METHOD is based on stats also. Just a different way of judging them. ‘A’ hits 50 HRs in 600 ABs. ‘B’ hits 40 HRs in 400 ABs. As stat people, you can see the stats in two perspectives. Who is best. Depends on how you wish to see it. The WIN METHOD sees everything in the terms of WINS. The team wins because of what its players do to help the team win. And the team doesn’t need to have any player in the top of any individual achievement category. It may have a statistical leader, but it doesn’t make a difference either way. The only category the team wants to lead in is WINS. Making the playoffs and moving on through the playoffs. The best players achieve this for the team and therefor themselves. In essence you guys measure a player on his individual stats, the WIN METHOD people measure a player on his ability to allow ateam to WIN. A difference in psychology. Another WIN METHOD issue, is the selection of players who can perform WHEN it counts, in clutch situations, under pressure, under the spotlight. Not everyone can do this, and some fail dismally. It is never how much, but far more important, WHEN you achieve as a player.

I do realize you will belittle, demean, and be unable to accept or comprehend. Have fun. Many do comprehend, accept, live it in their lives filled with success.""


The blog started slowly, and I realized I needed to try to kick  start it a little.  How.  I announced some two major YANKEE signings before anyone in the press and or talking heads knew of them.  On November 15, 2008 I announced that CC Sabathia would soon be a YANKEE.  On December 11, 2008 it was announced officially that CC would become a YANKEE.  Here is a link ==  http://www.espn.com/mlb/news/story?id=3759182.
To make a point that I had the information no one else knew about and did not just make a luck guess, I posted on December 19, 2008 that Mark Teixeira would sign a YANKEE contract.  That one no one expected.  Four days later the YANKEES announce to the world that they had signed Mark Teixeira to an eight year deal.  Here is a link == http://www.espn.com/mlb/news/story?id=3790141.
Many fans started coming to the blog, those who loved winning and wins and the WIN METHOD built the blog to what it is now, the best baseball blog in the world.  Those who did not agree with winning and wins determining the best teams and players (the stat frauds) went their own way to live and play in the fantasy world.   In the past year the WIN METHOD has grown so exponentially I won't bore you with the stats, but just say we are well on our way to one billion views world wide.


In early July the YANKEE management made the decision to trade/deal some chips for young talent that the YANKEES could use.  The YANKEES traded Andrew Miller to the Cleveland Indians for four players.  The piece the WIN METHOD wanted was pitcher Justus Sheffield.  He is now a YANKEE.  Hate to say this, but Clint Frazier is not WIN METHOD, but by no means to the degree of the great baseball fraud Alex Rodriguez aka afraud,  Lets hope the move to the YANKEE will help Frazier mentally and lets hope he will help the team.  I will monitor his progress.
In dealing Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs the YANKEES got a fine haul of four players and I am particularly happy with the YANKEES reacquiring  my special WIN  METHOD pick from several years back, Adam Warren.   The other three acquisitions will all make an impact on the YANKEES down the road.


Now here is some of the best news I can give you from this Junes draft.  The YANKEES were lucky enough to draft as their number one pick a nineteen year old in Blake Rutherford.  Blake is going to be a very special major league WIN METHOD player in the mold of Derek Jeter, and yes I will say it, maybe better.  Here is information about Blake which is what separates many players. === Before the Yankees came calling, he had a commitment to UCLA since he was a high school freshman out of Simi Valley, California.
"UCLA was a real big thing for me," he said. "It weighed on my mind, but the Yankees were my dream team. To hear them call my name was a dream come true."
Rutherford said he sees himself as a center fielder, though he already has been moved around in the outfield. He also said he expects physical and mental challenges as the grind of a season kicks.
"I'm hanging in there," he said. "The training staff has been great.… The biggest transition is the mental aspect. You have to be mentally strong. I think that's something that kind of separates you." ===  The YANKEES got a gem.  
More good news.  Another pick from a year ago is quickly moving up the minor league levels for the YANKEES and in my opinion will turn into another WIN METHOD gem. Pitcher Chance Adams is going to be very special.  Chance will be a big part of the rotation.
The YANKEES have tons of talent, both in the field and on the mound.  Injuries have slowed too many players to name here, but their time will come and the YANKEES will be a major force to reckon with for many years to come.  The future is oh so bright.  Do not be surprised if things develop well for the minor talent the YANKEES will not have to go crazy in the free agent market with many stars coming out in the next few years.  Maybe there will be a need for one piece if needed.
Yankees down the road with 2016 injuries, Bird, Mitchell, Clarkin, Kapreilian,DeCarr, German, Lindgren, Rumblelow, and others.
Look for Aaron Judge on the YANKEE roster in 2017 with Sanchez, Bird, Refsynder. Louie Louie, and more.

This season isn't over yet, but we learned a lot about many youngsters and they got the time to play everyday in the minors and that can only help to make them better.  I f we do not make the playoffs, sure is is a disappointment, but you have to take the bad and turn it into a positive.

Mark Teixeira has announce he will retire at the end of this season and lets all thank Mark for his time and his contributions during his eight years as a YANKEE which does include a World Series championship.   Mark put up with and played through countless injuries and gave his best all the time.  So long Mark, thank you, and good luck in your future endeavors.
I hope I did not forget anything and I must thank all of the WIN METHOD fans from all over the world who come here everyday and help make this blog the best it can be.   Wins and winning will always determine the best teams and the best players and don't ever let a stat fraud tell you differently.  All the stat frauds have are excuses and they love to blame the other guys.  They say they want to win, but only if it is their fantasy team in the world of make believe. 
LETS GO YANKEES

Victor Bruno, you said it all. "No matter how it is constructed, next seasons lineup will be younger, faster, and more powerful."

Erica Johnston said...

If one or two of our young pitchers fulfill their potential the Yanks could go a long way next season.

Beverly O said...

What I like about this blog compared to other sites I have been to is that people here don't try to run the team and make trades and ridicule players. Just comments on the flow.

Lori Kelly said...

Beverly O. Plus almost no BS about WAR, aWAR, dWAR, and so much other useless stat garbage.

Felix Lopez said...

The Yankee lineup in 2017 us going to have a new crisp look. It may even make Gardner and Ellsbury more valuable.

Glen Corbett said...

Beverly O, All those other blogs and forums are full of very ignorant posters who think they are smarter than the people who have made their career in baseball operations.

Steven Fischer said...

So if Gary Sanchez not winning ROY is good news, is gleyber Torres winning MVP of the AFL bad news?

bigbadwolf said...

Glen....must be why this site is the number one baseball blog in the world.

bigbadwolf said...

Steven Fischer, Torres winning MVp in AFL is just a story with meaningless value to those who know baseball. Would Torres not winning the award while recording average individual stats for himself in AFL change his abilities or his possible future?

Sam Waters said...

bigbadwolf, Exactly.

Steven Fischer said...

No, but as a fan I'm happy for him. I'm sure it's not meaningless to him.

YankeeMike said...

Steven Fischer, nor should it be meaningless to him.

jimbo said...

I can live with Torres putting up high individual stats. It is a developmental league where guys from many different teams thrown together to get experience and hone their skills.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

True jimbo. Similar to pick up games. Not truly teams/guys playing together for years to reach the playoffs.

will-i-am said...

Torres MVP although meaningless is far more important than Mike Trout who was awarded the AL MVP award for helping lead his team to 14 games under .500 and 21 games out of the AL West division lead as one of of the worst teams in baseball. How utterly ridiculous and meaningless. A joke and and embarrassment if there ever was one.

Pete H said...

will-i-am....You are right. Trout wasn't even the most productive hitter on his team. If you can't even help your team into the playoffs, you should not even be considered for the meaningless MVP award.

Yankeeforever said...

I don't blame Trout. He doesn't vote. If he is a stand up guy he probably would say there is no way in this world that he deserves the award. That is if he is a stand up guy. If he is a slug then he likely would think he deserves it.

Eddie OConnor said...

I would bet if Trout was asked about the MVP and his selection, his response would go a long way in determining if he is WIN METHOD or not.

NJYANKEE said...

Eddie OConnor, and Trouts response would determine if you wanted a player who thought it is best that he is the MVP and his team lost or if he wasn't the MVP and his team made the playoffs.

Quay Ho said...

Baseballs desired end result is for the team to win. Anything else is a bonus.

Saul Irving said...

But, but, but, the stat frauds say individual stats are what counts. Who gives a darn about winning.

Steven Fischer said...

Ok...but let's say you took trout off that team, who's to say how bad they'd be.

Yanks23245 said...

Steven Fischer, You could also opine who is to say how much better the team would be.

Brian Cowley said...

Because producing when it counts wins games, do people other than the great fans here ever think for a moment that a player with lesser individual stats can help a team win more games than the guy with higher individual stats.

Izy Hernandez said...

Brian Cowley, Because of their reduced mental capacity it may just be that stat frauds are unable to comprehend that production when it matters is more valuable to a team being able to win than producing when it does not matter.

Steven Fischer said...

I suppose you could, but if you follow Mike Trout and think that he hurts his team - that's pretty foolish.

I guess it depends on how you define MVP. I would think it would be the guy that has the greater impact on his particular team. So if Trout was absent, and the Angels would then be a 60 win team as opposed to 74 win team (I'm just making up numbers here to make a point), and no other individual player would impact his team as much - then I believe he has a case for MVP.

As such, to say it's an embarrassment the he won is quite strong, and I'm not so ignorant to think that I know more than the many professionals that follow the game for a living and watch Trout on a day to day basis and can see the impact he has.

Greg Colinsky said...

They adore stats for their fantasies.

Greg Colinsky said...

Using the argument that Trout helped his team (and using your numbers and agreeing they are made up), to 14 more wins, then it can more than very easily be said that Pujols who produced more runs was more valuable to the Angels. Thus, using your argument Pujols should be the MVP for helping his team to a sub .500 season. Now that is foolish.

Steven Fischer said...

Pujols - 71 runs and 119 rbis = 190
Trout - 123 runs and 100 rbis = 223

Plus watch a game, and you'd know Trout is a vastly superior defender at a more difficult defensive position.

So sorry, your argument doesn't make sense.

Yankeeforever said...

I wouldn't be a bit surprised that Trout thinks his winning the MVP is a sham. Then again, he may think he deserved it even though he was out statisticeded by one of his own team mates.

jimbo said...

But, as you stat frauds say, Pujols is not responsible for not being knocked in by his team mates. It is their fault. Drum roll, dumbdedumbdumb.

Steven Fischer said...

You have literally no idea what you're talking about jimbo.

Paul Hill said...

Steven Fischer, you are like the pot calling the kettle black. You are the one who has no idea what you are talking about.

Deb F said...

Steven Fischer, You just can't seem to grasp the concept that for a team producing when it counts to win games is far more important and player defining than how much or how many a player attains for himself while his team losses. You are blinded by false stats, that is a shame.

Steven Fischer said...

Yes but the MVP is an individual award, not a team award. I think you and Paul need to go back and read what we are talking about because it doesn't seem like you do.

Paul instead of a generic statement, It'd be nice if you pointed out what I've said that you don't agree with. You literally haven't been a part of this discussion at all and it'd be nice if you could Contribute a little bit
More than random insult

Domenic said...

Using Steven Fischers stupid stats then either Mookie Betts and Edwin Encarnacion should have been MVP. They at least got their team into the playoffs.

NJYANKEE said...

Then the MVP award needs to be clearly defined. Is it for a player attaining the highest individual stats no matter the outcome for his team, or is it for a player that helps his team to success, which is why the game is played?

Steven Fischer said...

NJYANKEE agreed, it isn't currently really defined so you see a lot of confusion.

Domenic, you either didn't read all my posts or don't understand. Me bringing up trouts stats was a direct response to some
One starting Pujols created more runs, which wasn't true. My original point was much dofferent. Make sure you understand things before being so nasty.

Paul Hill said...

Steven Fischer, To not complicate your thought process, there is nothing I agree with you about in your present state on mind.

Domenic said...

Steven Fischer, Pujols did create more runs, Trout scored more runs. You can only score if someone produces when it counts to put those runs on the board.
Here is an example of a useless stat. Leadoff man walks. Next batter hits into a force out taking the man who walked off the bases and the batter on the bases is the man who hit into the force out. Batter on base scores on triple by third batter and gets a run scored added to his stats for making an out. That is stat BS. Hard to believe you know so little.

Steven Fischer said...

Domenic
You get more chances to score when you're faster and get on base more. You can only get high RBI totals by having more men on base. They're both reliant on your teammates. You could say the same thing for RBIs....guy get's on base, steals second and third, and comes home on a groundout by the batter. Next guy up strikes out and loses the game. Isn't that a BS stat too? The hitter didn't do his job with the team down by two points. So no - I'm sorry, you can't just ignore run totals.

Also you still, clearly, didn't read the original post I made, which was strictly related to wins, and didn't bring up stats at all. Please read.

Tommy Lee said...

Domenic, how about your lumbering oaf hitter getting a double that every other man on your team would have had a triple on. Moves to third on a wild pitch, gets pinch run for, then the pinch runner scores on a sac fly to the center field fence over 400 ft away that any runner could have scored on. Pinch runner gets a run scored added to his meaningless stats for doing nothing but being put in the game by the manager.

Domenic said...

Steven Fischer, BINGO! Now you are on the right page, almost, as you recognize yet another BS stat.

Tommy Lee, Right post at the right time. The man who hit the double gets no run producing stat even though he double and made third on a wild pitch. The fast pinch runner gets the run scored for doing nothing.

See how we are discussing meaningless individual stats.

Did the team win because it was a game winning run or was the run that made the score 11-0 in the top of the 9th. MEANINGLESS.

Steven Fischer said...

Great.

My original post was that baseball professionals who watch Trout day in and day out must feel that he contributes more wins to his team than any single player in any other team. I guess you watch him enough to disagree, or are just smarter than the guys getting paid for their involvement in baseball.

Thanks for refusing to read the original post I made.

Steven Fischer said...

Domenic
Another question for you - since this was left unanswered when last I asked.

How do you know, for a fact, that WIMMETHOD ever meets these players, or does anything he says he does, or is involved with the organization in any meaningful way.

Domenic said...

Steven Fischer, bigbadwolf, johnsondc, Steve have met an know WIN METHOD. WIN METHOD has done charity appearances for bigbadwolf and johnsondc talking to kids about winning. I have read the blog from the beginning and I believe. There is no monetary scam or advertisements, just the WIN METHOD and winning. That alone tells me a lot. From what I see there are a heck of a lot of others who believe also. Then there are the skeptics, doubters, and naysayers. All of them are the baseball forum fools who ban WIN METHOD supporters. I saw several get banned at a couple of sites I posted at. As is fact, the truth hurts and the liars can only stifle truth by banning.
I read where you asked William Mensom the same question. He would never respond to a stupid question like I just have.

Steven Fischer said...

Stupid question, nice.

Have you met any of the people you just named? You gave a lot of fluff, but you basically answered by saying you have no idea. There is. No true evidence that what he says is true at all- that's the truth.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

I grew up with WIN METHOD in New York.

bigbadwolf said...

Steven Fischer, man oh man, you are stupid.

Steven Fischer said...

Bigbadwolf
Please stop. Your getting defensive because you have no true evidence. The fact that i require facts and evidence to believe things is the opposite of stupid.

People lie on the internet all the time.

Erica Nuyens said...

I met WIN METHOD at an airport. Love ya, WIN METHOD

Steven Fischer said...

Ok for the record, random posters whom I don't know on a forum where anyone can post under any name isn't evidence to the general public, or me.

bigbadwolf said...

Steven Fischer, You can require all you want. That is your problem. Lying on the internet is what you get at your forums who ban dissent and different real world views. Stay in the fantasy world or see the light. Your choice. I guess you don't believe in job interviews either.

Steven Fischer said...

Of course I do. I think it's not going to be able to tell you how good of a player one is going to be, considering playing baseball is a highly specialized skill that not everyone is capable of doing at the same level.

I bet Tebow had some great interviews

Victor Grandozi said...

Tebow went into football as his first choice. Likely had great interviews but more than likely choosing football before baseball did not make him WIN METHOD. Capisce.

jimbo said...

Steven Fischer. Good is in the eye of the beholder. I rather win and be the winner.

Tony Manchu said...

I think Steven Fischer has been brain washed by the stat frauds.

Steven Fischer said...

Good one Tony, the second some one produces a shred of hard evidence that winmethod is who he claims to be, I'll admit I'm wrong.

Until then, why should I show blind faith?

Tony Manchu said...

Steven Fischer, they did some job on you. Do you believe in a God? I do and I never met him. Just read writings from people I never met. I just realized as I wrote..WIN METHOD is the God of baseball.

Lori Kelly said...

Victor, jimbo, Tony, You all are scoring 10's.

Steven Fischer said...

That's pathetic that'd you would even compare a free to make baseball blog to religion. They're completely different and I hope you were just joking.

Lori Kelly said...

0

bigbadwolf said...

Steven Fischer, free to make, has no advertising, tries to sell nothing, no one gets banned, has had over 100,000,000 hits, viewed all over the world, knows baseball best, growing bigger every day.

Steven Fischer said...

wasn't the focus of my post, at all.

yankeeclipper21 said...

Those with little faith. So weak.

Swen Jorgenson said...

Lively off season discussion.

Stan the Man said...

After all the banter back and forth, everything comes down to the one and only undeniable fact that every intelligent sports fan accepts....to be the best you have to win.

Steven Fischer said...

Stan,

Probably the only reasonable thing any of you have said.

Cal Fuerst said...

Steven Fischer, that's what we believe in. WINS, to be the best you have to win.

will-i-am said...

Stan the Man...and Mike Trout did not win and was not the best nor the mos valuable. Case closed.

Steven Fischer said...

I mean you believe in wins, and that some man of which no scant trace of evidence for, should get all the credit for the Yankees success

Cal Fuerst said...

Steven Fischer, I do not think any one person can take or be given 'all the credit' for the Yankee success. There are multiple people involved in the decision any team makes regarding personnel.

Steve said...

T0 conclude. Steven Fischer feels he is right and the millions who read WIN METHOD and the thousands who post here are wrong. That would define what we all believe about stat frauds.

Steven Fischer said...

Steve, I'm not saying I'm right even, just that I've not seen one piece of conclusive evidence that suggests what winmethod says he does is true. You've all whined and complained- but haven't provided any hard proof. Why would I change my mind at that point?

Steve said...

Many posters here have met WIN METHOD. Believe them or not is your option.

Steven Fischer said...

Wow Steve how can I not believe what some random indescript posters typed on a blog. I hope you don't believe everything you read on the internet.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

I guess I am a nondescript poster just typing on a blog according to a stat fraud. But I grew up with and know WIN METHOD in the real world.

Steven Fischer said...

Sorry, but considering anyone can just type their name when they post, you could be anyone. People here don't even use their google accounts when they type, meaning anyone can go on and type any name they want. That's quite a leap of faith. The last time I asked I was referred to a picture a winmethod cake.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

What you post is your problem, not mine. And it appears not to be a problem with posters here.
The difference is we are in the real world and you are in the fantasy world.

Mark Wagoner said...

In my opinion, Mr. Fischer would rather believe lying ignorant talking heads and media reporters. Would rather believe someone who signed in with an account that anyone in the world can have as many as they want. Would rather believe in fantasy stats than real world stats. And would rather believe WIN METHOD is non-existent because WIN METHOD facts overwhelm his false beliefs.

Yankeeforever said...

It has to be hard living in a fantasy world and then trying to converse with real world people.

Steven Fischer said...

Cute, as soon as I see an actual fact I'll gladly admit to being wrong. Seeing as none of you can produce any, I think that speaks for itself.

bigbadwolf said...

Steven Fischer. You obviously believe that a site that requires your email address, sells advertisements, collects money on site hits, sells your email address, bans posters, and so on is more reputable than a site that does not require an email address, does not sell advertisements, does not collect money on hits, does not sell your email address, does not ban posters, and so on.

Patricia Piper said...

LOL! Steven Fischer would have been banned multiple times on one of his BS baseball forums for posts he can freely post on the WIN METHOD blog.

Jill Byrnes said...

I guess when WIN METHOD posted on December 19, 2008 that Mark Teixeira would become a Yankee, a full four days before it was announced to the public, coinciding with the world wide takeoff of his blog, that doesn't count in the fantasy world because it was a real world fact.

Steven Fischer said...

Considerinf you can adjust dates when you post, it really doesn't. Also really? That's all you need to prove that a guy flys around and speaks to every single Yankee player signed or traded for? That's quite a leap.

Why can't you guys accept that not everyone is in agreement with everything you believe?

johnsondc said...

It has been proven beyond doubt that the original post date by the author of a blog cannot repeat CANNOT be changed.

Victor Grandozi said...

Steven Fischer, I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving, but you are a fool.

Saul Irving said...

johnsondc, You will never convince a stat fraud. They are brain washed and brain dead. Facts and reality mean nothing to them.

It is that time again. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Steven Fischer said...

Incorrect, it was proven, and admitted on this blog, that you can choose the date of a post when originally posting (i.e. I could post something today and choose whatever date I wanted). We've had this discuss in the past and people even stated that they contacted google about this.

Steven Fischer said...

Final point. You guys can insult and bemoan me all you want. I've asked for one thing, a shred of evidence. Why would I believe anything without that? The fact that not a one has been able to produce anything substantial, only further proves you're either phonies or extremely gullible people.

Like I said, I'd love to be proven wrong by something concrete. Clearly, you have nothing.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Third time I am saying this. I grew up in NYC with and know WIN METHOD. Steven Fischer seems to ignore this fact, unless he wishes to call me a liar.

johnsondc said...

I have met WIN METHOD when I worked and live in DC, hence my blog name. WIN METHOD came and spoke to kids I coached at several functions. I have posted this before, but in all his ignorance Steven Fischer ignores these statements and unless he wishes to call me a liar also. I moderate for this blog.

Steve said...

I get the impression that Steven Fischer thinks he is special in demanding proof he can touch and feel so he can believe in the WIN MRTHOD. His disdain and contempt for the millions of WIN METHOD readers, posters, and believers is sad and tells much about his character while speaking volumes about stat frauds in general. He never discusses the issues others have brought up here that they know and have met WIN METHOD, that stat frauds are not banned here and can speak their views while WIN METHOD posters are banned whenever they post at the stat fraud forums. You see, we have nothing to be afraid of in our views because our views are based on facts. The stat frauds make up formulas, contrive values to certain stats and then claim how wonderful they are. But when challenged and proven wrong time and again, they ban the people with facts so they can live, post, and play in their fantasy world.

Steven Fischer said...

Sid, Johnsondc - I'm sorry, but I have no idea who you guys are and haven't met you. So why would that be evidence. Again anyone can go on here and type anything. Obviously that's evidence for you - but we're on the internet and I'm not just going to believe anything that's typed.

Steve - don't think I'm special at all, and I have literally zero disdain or contempt for you or anyone else. However, the FACT is, that I haven't seen a shred of evidence that this is true. Some random poster typing that they met him isn't evidence...

Honestly, I know you guys are smarter than this, and that if there was true evidence out there you'd show it.

Cory said...

In my never humble opinion stat frauds and their ilk are gutless liars who are unable to defend their distorted, contrived, and foul views.

Jake Engel said...

Guys and gals, remember those of you got bounced out of baseball forums for having an opinion against the grain. Weren't you called a troll and or you were hijacking a thread. So that must mean Fischer is a troll hijacker for speaking his opinions. Note, no one here ever called him that, they just refuted is obfuscated thoughts. And low and behold, he still can post his opinions. Another point he can't defend from his stat fraud buddies.

Jake Engel said...

Oh, I forgot. Fischer mentioned people posting here can post using any name. No difference at the forums where anyone can sign up with multiple accounts using different names. The difference here is integrity, something stat frauds know nothing about.

Steven Fischer said...

Jake
Refuting me would entail evidence sir, ;-) nice try.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Steven Fischer, You live by the sword you die by the sword.

Tim Hergenraeder said...

Cory, bonus points for you.

Jake Engel said...

Steven Fischer, You have been refuted by testimony from posters here, the time stamped evidence from Dec. 2008 blog post, and all evidence provided. Your guilty as charged. You however, do have the right to appeal this decision on your stat fraud forums.

Steven Fischer said...

wow, can't argue with any of that Jake. That pretty much proves that he's a God as another poster wrote.

Thanks!

White Knight said...

Maybe not a God, but the best talent evaluator in baseball.

Sharon/NC said...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

Well said White Knight.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Harry Stavris said...

Happy Thanksgiving WIN METHOD fans. The smartest baseball fans in the world.

Linda Pardo said...

Enjoy your turkey people. Enjoy your friends and family.

NJYANKEE said...

A poster here has doubts regarding WIN METHOD. Any blog that started from nothing and has grown to be the most viewed in the world and still growing is real and the people say so. A fad, a whim, a hoax, a scam, all come, hit the waves, but all fad away until new ones come. The true measure of success is the growth and popularity. The WIN METHOD defines growth and popularity, but most important the WIN METHOD defines truth and reality.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Alex Antonius said...

As WIn METHOD eat turkey for Thanksgiving the stat frauds eat crow.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Happy Thanksgiving

Jack Bauer said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Everyone, have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Yanks23245 said...

Happy Thanksgiving and may we all share the bird with the stat frauds.

Raul Vasquez said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

YankeeMike said...

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.

bigbadwolf said...

Happy Thanksgiving

Mike Smith said...

Gobble gobble. Happy Thanksgiving.

johnsondc said...

Turkey day. Our best to everyone from the WIN METHOD family. Happy Thanksgiving.

Gloria LeClair said...

26 pound Tom is in the oven. Happy Thanksgiving.

Swen Jorgenson said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Lou Lis said...

Happy Tom Turkey, enjoy everyone.

Gil McKenzie said...

Happy Thanksgiving.

Nick Polito said...

Happy Thanksgiving to the special fans here at WIN METHOD.

Todd Griffin said...

One month to Christmas Day. Lets move forward.

johnny said...

Lets go Yankees.

Wilsonsway said...

Never forget. To be the best players and teams, you have to win.

Dane Ostroff said...

Winter meetings in another week. Play it cool guys.

Wayne Littlebear said...

Dane.. Yes, we have the tools to rebuild from within.

bigbadwolf said...

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Sharon/NC said...

Thanks wolfie. Had good one with family.

jimbo said...

Betances says he will pitch for Dominican Republic in WBC garbage games. I think it is very stupid for pitchers to be throwing game situations that early in spring.

Artie S said...

I don't know what Betances is trying to prove.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Players are given to much leeway in my opinion.

Zack Norris said...

We, as fans, have much to look forward to in 2017.

Andrew J said...

Zach, maybe a WS ring?

Warren Hammond said...

Going back to Greg Bird and his AFL games. Going just by meaningless stats the dumb fans will be led astray. Bird accomplished everything he wanted in the short season.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

When anyone mentions Sanchez, Judge, Bird, Torres, Mateo, Frazier, etc I start salivating.

Linda Rice said...

I'm having withdrawal symptons. I need baseball, Yankee baseball.

Eddie OConnor said...

2017 will be a move forward season.

Hector Lopez said...

Betances got married this past weekend. A black Friday event.

Jill Byrnes said...

Betances is 6'8" and she looks 5'0".

Victor Grandozi said...

Maybe this will help Betances to get his head screwed on right and his priorities in order.

Deb F said...

Congratulations to the newlywed couple.

Quay Ho said...

Great stuff WIN METHOD fans.

Chad Greene said...

This will be a big year for Betances. He has much to prove.

Artie S said...

Another month gone. Closer to spring training.

Frank Sergi said...

I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see some youngster take the bull by the horn and make a big statement this spring.

Jimmy Thames said...

Frank Sergi, might even be a couple of guys. That would be sweet.

Jack Gordon said...

The Yankees have released starter Nathan Eovaldi. Eovaldi will be available to the highest bidder when a team is willing to pay him and Eovaldi accepts the offer.

Sharon/NC said...

I wish him well on his recovery from surgery and wouldn't be surprised if he comes back stronger than ever. Patience is a virtue.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Eovaldi is still young enough to be a major impact pitcher.

Bud Light said...

A young stud starter needs to shine this spring and then help lead this team to the playoffs in 17.

Guy Padikian said...

He has been a winner, any improvement can on that can make him a very valuable commodity, if you believe winning is what matters.

NJYANKEE said...

The players and owners have agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement. One of the items in the agreement is the team with the best record in baseball will get home field advantage and the all star game will no longer decide who gets home field advantage.

Saul Irving said...

I guess the inferior nl got tired of never having home advantage.

Benny Pake said...

2 1/2 months until spring training.

Phil Jenkins said...

All teams have decisions, injuries, and issues. Lets be the one that makes the best decisions, overcomes injuries, and corrects all issues.

White Knight said...

Phil, well said.

johnsondc said...

Ackley and Lindgren both non-tendered by the Yankees.

Tony Gigante said...

Lindgren had TJ surgery and would be out all of 17 and Ackley was easily replaceable.

Raul Vasquez said...

Yanks sign Matt Holiday for one year at 13Mil.

Norm Jackson said...

That hurts the rookies chances.

Gus Papa said...

Holiday could be a big help.

Augie DeFonce said...

Maybe a trade down the road for one of our outfielders?

Paul Hirschman said...

Who knows, we don't make any decisions.

Yankeeforever said...

I still believe pitching will be our biggest concern for 2017.

Dan Evans said...

Yankeeforever, agree. But I also believe we have the arms to make us great again.

Hugh Frazier said...

I think someone or two are going to make the grade this season.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

I can't imagine why so many pitchers have so much problems with their arms, elbows, shoulders, etc in these past few decades compared to 50 - 60 years ago.

Frank Sergi said...

Todays pitchers throw with so much more torque which contorts their arm into unnatural positions creating a strain that is too much for the muscles, tendons, bones to take.

Paul Hill said...

Frank, are you a doctor or have medical experience?

Frank Sergi said...

Paul Hill, retired doc

Yankeeforever said...

Look at things this way. Whatever young Yankee pitchers do not make the ML roster will make Scranton and Trenton two very formidable AA and AAA teams.
