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

Saul Irving said...

Tampa swept us two weeks ago in Tampa. We can't have that happen this weekend. We need the series.

Vinny Ferrero said...

We played around afraud who went 0-4 and never got the ball out of the infield, but we got the win.

johnsondc said...

One day, today, this is the last day that the most foul disgusting player in baseball, afraud, will play his last game in a New York Yankee uniform. afraud has disgraced the Yankee organization, himself, and baseball. Good riddance.

Dane Ostroff said...

CC tonight. Interestingly as the season comes to the closing stages, each start by each pitcher is bigger and bigger.

Norm Jackson said...

Wouldn't it be great if CC finds that old magic for the rest of this season. Lets go CC, lets go Yankees.

NJYANKEE said...

Take game one tonight, add to the team a real player tomorrow as afraud is booted out and continue winning.

afraud the cancer in his last game as a Yankee keeps Gary Sanchez out of the lineup.

Sharon/NC said...

Take afraud out of the game after one at bat. Even one more at bat is one too many. afrauds character is garbage.

Boston Yankee said...

Again, but for the last time, we play around the black hole afraud, a liar and a cheat.

John Hartnett said...

Chew on this. afraud is being honored even though he dis-honored everything and everybody.

Jill Byrnes said...

Sharon/NC, Girardi has too much class to pull afraud after one at bat.

Yanks23245 said...

So long afraud. You won't be missed.

johnny said...

Teena/Bronx said...

Small storms headed into area. Things may back up a little while.

yankeeclipper21 said...

Wins and winning is why they play the game. Keep on winning. Yes we can.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

I am very proud at the way this team has performed and how they are performing now, through countless injuries, a player who can't play the field or run, the retirement of Teixeira, the departing of afraud, the constant roster maneuvering, and anything else you can think of.

Greg Stone said...

Now we can start being great again. Tanaka today to win this series.

candycane said...

2-0 Yankees after 2.

WIN METHOD said...

As I write I am crying with joy to see two YANKEE rookies in their first major league game in their first at bat hit back to back home runs. Tyler Austin and Aaron Judge. LETS GO YANKEES.

White Knight said...

Wow, what a blast by Judge. Hit at the very top of the glass at of the Mohegan Sun restaurant in center field.

William Mensom said...

I would have to think that the Austin/Judge home runs by rookies in their first game in their first at bats is the first time this has been done in the history of MLB.

Erica Nuyens said...

Love ya, WIN METHOD, I'll cry with joy with you, Love ya,

Linda Pardo said...

WIN METHOD digs deep. Austin Tylers mom interviewed by Meredith Marakovits reveals her son Tyler wanted to be a Yankee since he was four years old playing T-ball. The heart and soul of the WIN METHOD.

Lori Kelly said...

Oh what great stuff. It is a great day.

Tony Manchu said...

3-3 after four after Tanaka gives up 3 run HR in fourth, Castro ties it with solo HR.

candycane said...

3-3 after 4.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Come on Masahiro get your act together, don't spoil the day.

Jack Gordon said...

Hicks with a 3 run homer in 5th for a 6-3 Yankee lead.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

I will say this and never bring it up again. I think with the cancer gone from the Yankee dugout, all the Yankee players, and particularly the youngsters will be far better off than they have been.

candycane said...

Yanks up 6-4 after 6.

Victor Grandozi said...

Amen sid.

Stan the Man said...

Gregorius 2 run HR in 7th gives Yanks 8-4 lead after 7.

Eddie OConnor said...

Tidbit. This is the first game in the history of the Yankees that five different players 26 years old and younger have hit home runs in the same game.

Jack Gordon said...

Clippard in for the 8th.

candycane said...

Yanks up 8=4 after 8.

will-i-am said...

jimbo said...

Final 8-4 win.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Yankeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees Winnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

Yankeeforever said...

Lets take the sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep tomorrow.

bigbadwolf said...

The best part about the Yankee rookies, is there are more to come.

yankeeclipper21 said...

I am so glad I came to this blog. It is so much fun, positive attitude, it is what baseball is about, winning, not individual stats and people trying to tell you the losers are the best because they have great stats and it is their teammates fault.

Jen Vitter said...

WIN METHOD, The best tears are the tears of joy. Thanks for making baseball positive and fun.

Gus Papa said...

Give the rookies their space fans. Their true test is when things go south, how they respond and adopt.

RLA said...

Gus Papa, I don't think you have to worry here. WIN METHOD fans don't eat our young, nor anyone but for one who is no more. Now if only Louie Louie Severino steps up to the challenge.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Just remember, YES WE CAN.

Gloria LeClair said...

Jeter looked fantastic at the celebration today. Fit, trim, and handsome as ever.

Teena/Bronx said...

Now now Gloria, Jetes is married now.

Brian Cowley said...

Maybe the debut by Austin and Judge will spark a competitive nerve in Louie Louie.

Tom Loughlin said...

With Eovaldi out Louie Louie is going to need to really step it up and earn some wins.

Jeff Miller said...

Back to the future. Remember the late 90's teams and championships. The core four and the championships. Lets do it again.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Lets go Yankees. Sweep this series.

Frank Sergi said...

I look at yesterdays lineup and compared to last week, the youth and maybe most important, the speed that is now in the lineup. Think of the clog on the base paths and how many runs did not score because runners could not score from second on a single, could not score from third on a fly ball, could not go from first to third on a hit, could not beat out an infield roller or ball fielded in the hole or down the third base lines. the culprits, Beltran, gone, afraud gone, Teixeira and McCann.

reinvaldez said...

We have several young pitchers coming back next season after elbow, arm, tendon, ligament injuries, take your pick, and that could impact the Yankee staff next season.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Frank Sergi, I wonder how much time Teixeira and McCann are going to get. McCann almost has to be dealt in the off season. The thing is since we have tons of catchers in the pipe line, other teams will not offer much for McCann since they know we do not need him. Maybe there is a team in the off season who will really need a left handed veteran catcher.

jimbo said...

Gardner and Headley both lefty bats not in lineup. The kids are.

Wilsonsway said...

Will the infusion of new WIN METHOD talent that is home grown power the team forward.

Izy Hernandez said...

Just play to win, play as a team, help, support, and encourage each other and the wins will come. Relax, be happy.

Karl R said...

I'm so excited for the youngsters. I more anticipation than usual to watch these coming games.

jimbo said...

Time for Yankee baseball. Lets go Yankees.

Sal Mineo said...

No candycane? Yanks behind 1-0 after 2.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Severino hit hard and is taken out after 3 2/3 innings allowing 7 runs and Yanks down 8-1 after 3 1/2 innings.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Yankees trail 8-3 after 4.

Andy K said...

Yanks trail 8-3 after 6.

jimbo said...

Yankees getting hammered. Might as well lose big rather than by one run. Down 12-3 after 7.

Jill Byrnes said...

The slaughter is over, a 12-3 loss.

Tommy Lee said...

Severino is going to have to figure things out.

Saul Irving said...

Next up. The Blue Jays in for three games. Have to take that series. Who do we have to pitch?

Marty Hall said...

Saul Irving, They listed Chad Green as starter.

Wayne Littlebear said...

Losing Eovaldi looks like it may hurt the Yankee run.

Sal Mineo said...

Wayne, we always play the hand we are dealt. Big things will happen and there will be a steady run of success down the road.

AAA said...

If not this season, then next.

Yanks23245 said...

Chad Green is the starter tonight against Toronto. A chance to be the man.

Norm Jackson said...

Winning game one tonight would be really big.

Artie S said...

Can we dream of a sweep of the Jays?

Sammybigdog said...

Lets go Yankees. Keep on chuggin' along.

Cal Fuerst said...

Judge has power no matter where he hits the ball. That will play well in any ballpark.

Gary Shrieber said...

Big spot for Green tonight.

Cole/NJ said...

We face the knuckleball tonight.

Dan Evans said...

Don't swing like madmen at the knuckleball, just ease up and hit it in whatever direction it is pitched. Easy contact.

Quay Ho said...

Come on guys. Yes we can.

Guy Padikian said...

We are overdue to slam Dickey.

jimbo said...

Just about game time.

candycane said...

0-0 after 2.

Glen Corbett said...

The Yankees have had men on 1st and 2nd with 0 outs in the first two innings and have not produced at all when it mattered.

Benny Pake said...

Scoreless thru three.

jimbo said...

Judge rbi double gives Yanks 1-0 lead after 4.

candycane said...

Yanks up 1-0 after 4.

candycane said...

Yanks up 1-0 after 6.

Dane Ostroff said...

But for Judge, Yankees hitters putting on a dismal display of producing when it matters tonight. Score could easily be anywhere from 5 to 10-0.

Billy Tedder said...

Green goes a great six innings of shutout ball. Clippard in for the 7th.

Gus Papa said...

Clippard 1,2,3 7th but Yanks don't score and lead 1-0 after 7. Warren in for the 8th.

muchomachoman said...

Warren 1,2,3 8th. Can we get an insurance run?

will-i-am said...

Yanks leave bases loaded in 8th and are 1-17 with RISP tonight. Judge double is the only hit when it mattered.

jimbo said...

Betances saves it the hard way.

will-i-am said...

Theeeeeeeeeeeee Yankeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees Winnnnnnnnnnn.

Saul Irving said...

Final, a big win 1-0.

Wilsonsway said...

We don't get many easy wins.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Yanks23245, You said it. Chad Green had the chance to be the man and he ran with it for a 1-0 win.

Jack Gordon said...

One hit with RISP and it was a rookie Aaron Judge who got it and was the game winning hit.

Cole/NJ said...

Big Mike Pineda tonight for the good guys. Lets win another.

Paul Hirschman said...

Youngsters have surely made the Yankees better, and there are more youngsters in the pipeline.
An example, last night McCann couldn't score from second on a ground single to right field.

Dave Matthews said...

Paul Hirschman, The foot speed alone of the new kids makes a difference. Speed can help score runs that otherwise may not score.

Gail Holden said...

We have many games with the AL East competition yet to come. Wins will determine who is best, and it will only be wins.

bigbadwolf said...

Look at the season and wins this way. Maybe it will show the stat frauds and the new comers here at WIN METHOD just what means and just how vital they are. We are half way thru our fifth month of the baseball season. IF the Yankees had won just one (1) more game in each of the five months played so far, they would right now be only 1/2 game out of first place in the AL East, the best division in baseball. Think of that, just one more game each month.

Sol Hormel said...

bigbadwolf, it really is amazing what one more win a month could mean. Break it down even further, it could be as little as one more hit in a game you lose by one run.

Fred Slube said...

Eovaldi prognosis in, he will have Tommy John surgery and miss the entire 2017 season.

Erica Johnston said...

Eovaldis injury opens the door for someone to earn a rotation spot. One mans disaster is anothers opportunity.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Erica Johnston, There will be many arms trying to win Eovaldis spot. Spring training 2017 should be fun and lets see what shakes out of the palm trees.

Steve said...

Erica/sid, Even CC's spot could be up for grabs. Likely tight now only Pineda and Tanaka may have spots.

YankeeMike said...

OK Big Mike, do what green did.

jimbo said...

Game time, wins determine the best.

candycane said...

Yanks up 2-0 after 2.

candycane said...

Yanks up 5-0 after 4.

Carl Hooks said...

Sanchez solo and three run HRs tonight and Didi solo HR for 5-0 lead after 4.

jimbo said...

Rain delay mid fifth with Yankees leading 5-0.

Augie DeFonce said...

Judge and Sanchez added to the lineup has made a world of difference and really lengthened it.

Yankeeforever said...

Assuming we win tonight and it looks good, we need to slap Happ around tomorrow.

Wilsonsway said...

Yankees add a run in 5th for a 6-0 lead after 5.

Cory said...

After delay Swarzak comes in for 6th and immediately gives up 4 runs.

candycane said...

Yanks up 6-4 after 6.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Clippard in for the 7th.

Ty Keel said...

Clippard goes 1,2,3 7th.

Ty Keel said...

Warren in for the 8th.

Tom Loughlin said...

It looks like a night off for the bullpen, ain't going to happen.

Ty Keel said...

Warren gibes up 2 run HR. 6-6.

will-i-am said...

Warren gives up another 2 run HR. Yanks down 8-6. What a disaster.

will-i-am said...

Deb F said...

I can't recall a more devastating loss.

KevMac said...

If, I can't think about the if.

Randy Holt said...

Last nights game might very well be season defining.

Carl Hooks said...

Sabathia this afternoon to try to win the series. We blew it last night, the bullpen imploded. We could be playing for a sweep today. IF.

jimbo said...

jimbo said...

Game time.

John Hartnett said...

Game over, 7-4 loss. From a game one 1-0 win and a game two 6-0 lead after five innings to two losses.

YankeeMike said...

The bright spots of this series have to be Sanchez, Judge, and Green.

Lori Kelly said...

In a way, maybe not making the playoffs is a good thing this year. Let the kids start off next season as a group instead of what is happening now. Think of Bird, Judge, Sanchez, Gregorius in the 3,4,5,6 holes.

Greg Stone said...

Lori Kelly, Next year is truly something to look forward to, but you can't give up this year yet.

Quay Ho said...

I am still waiting for my 10 game win streak.

Augie DeFonce said...

If only we could have a 10 game win streak, it would likely put us on the cusp of a playoff spot.

muchomachoman said...

If I am not mistaken the Yankees AAA, AA, and A teams have all made the playoffs this year.

Gene A said...

The future is bright, that is what counts, all the guys have to do is win.

Cal Fuerst said...

Today is an off day. Angels on tap tomorrow.

Marty Hall said...

Quay Ho, if not this year, maybe next year.

yankeeclipper21 said...

With the patched up pitching staff I doubt we could win ten consecutive games this season.

Saul Irving said...

Pitching will be the priority for next season, it looks as if we will have the bats.
