WIN METHOD 2017 - The season begins as we bloom and grow.

Hello WIN METHOD fans.  It is that time, the 2017 MLB season is set to begin,  tomorrow the games count.  The magic of the spring training 25-9 record means nothing.  The home runs, runs batted in, the wins, the losses the strike outs, etc, none of it makes a bit of difference.  Now is when it counts and matters, performing under pressure, and producing when it matters to earn wins for the team is all that counts.  WINS and only wins will, by seasons end, determine who are the best teams and players.  They will be the players that help lead their teams to the playoffs.

The YANKEES for 2017 and beyond are blessed with an abundance of talent all through the organization.  And success breeds success as each youngster pressures and pushes the players ahead of them to reach the final goal of reaching and playing in the major leagues.  Once there, the goal of making the playoffs and advancing to the World Series can be reached.  Hal Steinbrenner has come on board the WIN METHOD train and his decision is going to reap benefits as the YANKEES reach the playoffs more consistently and the fans come to the ballpark to see the new young talent for years to come.

The YANKEES will start the 2017 with three youngsters in the starting lineup.  Aaron Judge in right field, Greg Bird at first base, Gary Sanchez catching.  Unfortunately, shortstop Didi Gregorius is starting the season on the disabled list, hurting his shoulder playing in the sham world baseball classic fiasco.  The YANKEES have added youngster Pete Kozma to the roster to fill in until Didis' return.
Johnathon Holder another youngster is also on the roster as a relief pitcher to start the season.  During the season you will likely see many different youngsters see some time on the YANKEE roster and do not be surprised to see one or two stick with the team this season.  Two of the brightest prospects are Gleyber Torres who is on the cusp of sticking with YANKEES this season and has a very bright future ahead of him.  The second is Blake Rutherford who will start the season in single 'A' Charleston as a nineteen year old.  Blake is my own personal favorite to be a real big star in the major leagues as he shows much of the character, charisma, talent and desire of Derek Jeter.  Can you all imagine having a youngsters follow in the footsteps of Jeter who was the best MLB player in baseball over his twenty year career.  More playoffs, pennants, the World Series rings than any other player in baseball over his playing time span.

The WIN METHOD blog has now exceeded over one hundred sixty-four million views and the number one baseball blog in the world.  The growth over the past two years has been exponential as more people are learning that only WINS and winning determine who the best players and teams are in baseball.  Individual stats show abilities of players to play at different degrees.  Batting average, power, speed can be illustrated via individual stats for hitters, while strikeouts, walks, hits allowed can be illustrated for pitchers.  But, the ability of any player to be the best can only be shown by WINS and winning.  You can't be the best unless you win.  WIN METHOD fans already know this, and as more and more people from all over the world read, enjoy, and follow this blog, they also become the smartest baseball fans in the world.  They have learned that no players individual stats are more important than wins and winning.  Wins and winning is the goal of every team and should be for every player.   Wins and winning is what makes the WIN METHOD the best player evaluation tool in the world.

Now, as the 2017 season begins, we are looking for a winning season, the playoffs and beyond, as the team keeps getting better and more youngster keep getting better and becoming good enough to make the big league team.   Thank you, to all you fans from all over the world, baseballs brightest and most knowledgeable.   Lets all get ready for a great season.  LETS GO YANKEES.

Coming to post about Betances and I get a new blog post. Very nice. LETS GO YANKEES. My thought on Betances, is he a head case? getting bad advice? or did getting married screw him up?

Erica Nuyens said...

Great post WIN METHOD. Lets bloom and grow. Love ya,

Stan the Man said...

The future is now guys. Go out and produce when it counts and play together for one goal, winning.

Steve said...

Yes WIN METHOD, time to bloom and grow and win. The cavalry (youngsters) are coming.

Gloria LeClair said...

Really looking forward to one heck of a season.

Hobbs said...

Really glad I came here.

Patricia Piper said...

The WIN METHOD has always blown away the stat frauds and all other baseball sites and forums.
Nothing is better than winning. the positive attitude by almost all here, the none negating of management, coaches, players to a great degree is a pleasure.

jimbo said...

Would be great to get off to a good start and build on the good vibes from spring training.

Teena/Bronx said...

WIN METHOD is really high on Rutherford. He must see something special in him to compare him to Jetes.

YankeeMike said...

Being positive, the starters will be in the game for more at bats and less days off, particularly giving the youngsters more at bats at more chance to produces when it matters.

Tommy Lee said...

It is still the same old same old, win each series playing one game at a time.

Steve said...

I see where on a baseball forum one of the stat frauds got played with an April fools prank that Aaron Judge was placed on the DL.

will-i-am said...

Fans, chew on this. One HR by any player, just once per week, over the six month season equates to approximately 25 home runs. Nice if Bird, Judge, and Sanchez would all accomplish in their first full season.

johnny said...

Lets go Yankees.

Pierre Jadot said...

Love this blog and the great information in it. No nonsense, positive, and uplifting. Best yet, no advertisements and no one trying to sell me something. Keep up the best site in sports.

Eddie OConnor said...

Steve, it's April fools day, only a stat fraud could be so gullible.

Lori Kelly said...

Steve, Eddie, I would think anyone with half a brain would verify a claim of a DL injury before spreading the information.

Jill Byrnes said...

Yes we can. Oh yes we can. Naysayers, get a life.

Stanley Chin said...

Play as a team, everyone contributes. No me's, many us's.

Hugh Frazier said...

I think it is very nice that the stat frauds are honored with their own day today.

Dean Kane said...

Hugh Frazier, very astute of you.

Zhaire said...

Lets go guys. Win as a team. It all starts tomorrow.

Lou Lis said...

Phil Jenkins, Betances problem may be any one issue or a combination in part of two or all three of the issues you mentioned.

KevMac said...

Americas past time is back. It is spring and time to play the greatest sport in the world, baseball. Let the games begin.

Harry Stavris said...

One game at a time guys. Play as a team. WINS are the goal.

Hobbs said...

Lets go Yankees.

Quay Ho said...

We are down to minutes until first pitch. Lets go Yankees.

Jerry Curcio said...

Didi as a lefty bat would have filled out this lineup perfectly. Too many times you do not appreciate what you have until their gone.

Sal Mineo said...

Game time. Almost. Communication problems with the head sets to replay headquarters.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

We'll need our bats today to win as Tanaka gets hit hard in first allowing three runs.

Tony Manchu said...

Judge rbi double keys 2 run inning for Yanks to quickly respond.

Sal Mineo said...

Tanaka gives the 2 runs right back on HR. Down 5-2 after 2.

jimbo said...

Tanaka hammered and can't finish 3rd inning leaves trailing 7-2.

Cory said...

After Tanaka gives up 7 runs in first 3 innings, Yankee bullpen holds Rays scoreless for next 5 innings.

Sal Mineo said...

We've had some chances but never got the hit when it would have mattered and go into 9th trailing 7-2.

will-i-am said...

Sanchez 0-5 and Bird 0-4 as Yanks go down 7-3. Not what we wanted when it counts.

White Knight said...

Not the start we wanted for the season. Judge the only rookie with a hit today. Tanaka showed nothing.

Victor Grandozi said...

Off day today.

Todd Griffin said...

Build on the loss. Learn it is not easy. We had the bags full twice and had our chances. Got just one run out of those two opportunities. When, when, when.

Gene A said...

We may be better off having a day off today.

Gabe Pren said...

CC tomorrow night in Tampa.

yankeeclipper21 said...

We will rebound.

Rahm Mahood said...

Yesterdays loss has to be all on Tanaka, he buried us inning after inning.

Mike Smith said...

6-4 ball every 10 games makes the playoffs.

okiened said...

After CC tomorrow, Pineda starts Wednesday, then another off day.

Frank Sergi said...

As soon as we get a couple of wins under our belt and the youngsters get some big hits the train will roll along to the playoffs.

Linda Pardo said...

Stay confident fans, we've only played one game.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Lets go Yankees.

Jen Vitter said...

Get even tonight guys.

Stanley Chin said...

We can only improve as the season moves on. We have the parts, they just have to be put together correctly in the right order.

candycane said...

Yanks up 4-0 after 6.

candycane said...

Game over. Win number one. 5-0.

Domenic said...

The old veteran goes five solid scoreless innings for the win.

NJYANKEE said...

The only Yankee pitcher to give a run after two games is Tanaka.

Paul Hill said...

Pineda tonight to try to win the series.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Sanchez still without a hit, but he has hit some hard shots right at people.

yankeeclipper21 said...

This is your year Big Mike. Lets go.

RLA said...

That's winning as a team last night. Five innings from the starter, four innings from the bullpen, HR and 2 rbi from the number 9 hitter Torreyes, HR and 2 rbi from the number 7 hitter Headley and an rbi from the cleanup hitter Holiday. Everybody wins.

Guy Padikian said...

Same lineup for third consecutive game. Four if you add in the last spring training game.

Alex Antonius said...

Hope we can win our first series tonight.

Laura Suarez said...

Wait until Sanchez and Bird put it together.

Raul Vasquez said...

Laura Suarez, everyone contributes, when everyone contributes throughout the season you win more games.

Marty Hall said...

Lets go Yankees. Yes you can.

Stan the Man said...

Ellsbury solo HR in 2nd.

Yanks23245 said...

Pineda pitches the Yankees into a 4-1 hole after 2.

Frank Harris said...

Yanks down 4-1 after 7.

Ned Porter said...

Yankee bullpen flawless again, but lose 4-1. Had chances, but failed every time when it mattered.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

Bird, Judge, and Sanchez are 4-38 with 2 walks and 1 RBI over the first three games. The worm will turn.

Andrew J said...

Off day today.

Brian Cowley said...

Ben Rosen, when the worm turns the roses will bloom and grow.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

Brian Crowley, I sure hope so.

Nick Polito said...

No rbis from your 2 and 3 hitters leaves much to be desired.

Saul Irving said...

Louie Louie gets his chance to start tomorrow.

Jack Bauer said...

New opposition in a new ballpark this weekend. The past is done, the future is ahead.

Eddie OConnor said...

A win from Louie Louie tonight would be great and maybe a step forward for him. He has the tools, just needs to mature and learn to pitch using his skills.

Walt Bellamy said...

The friendly confines of Oriole Park may be just what our kids need.

Yankeeforever said...

I see Kaprielian has been put on the DL with elbow soreness.

Guy Padikian said...

5. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
6. Starlin Castro (R) 2B
7. Chase Headley (S) 3B
8. Aaron Judge (R) RF
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) SS

Same lineup fourth game in succession. Unusual for Girardi.

Linda Pardo said...

Tough on Kaprielian, he just be one of those kids that is cursed for whatever reason.

Cory said...

Louie Louie with a rough first inning but only allows one run. 1-1 after one.

candycane said...

Yankees up 3-1 after 3 on Holiday 2 run HR in 3rd.

Ted Lilly said...

Sanchez 2 run HR in 5th for a 5-1 lead.

Yankeelover said...

5-4 Yankees thru 5.

Steve said...

Yankees down 6-5 after 8 as Clippard allows first runs by bullpen this season.

Gail Holden said...

This was a tough loss, but again, a hit or two when we had the opportunities and it would be an easy win instead of another loss.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Tanaka starts this afternoon and we could use a big start and a win.

White Knight said...

Bird is off to one horrendous start. Hope he can keep positive and be who he is and do what he is capable of doing. Right now he is hitting like our ex black hole afraud.

Chad Greene said...

Maybe Girardi should change the lineup.

Gordie Howell said...

Louie Louie one bad pitch cost him.

Guy Padikian said...

Saturday 4/8 4:05pm
Masahiro Tanaka (R)

1. Brett Gardner (L) LF
2. Gary Sanchez (R) C
3. Matt Holliday (R) DH
4. Chris Carter (R) 1B
5. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
6. Starlin Castro (R) 2B
7. Chase Headley (S) 3B
8. Aaron Hicks (S) RF
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) SS

Bird and Judge both on bench today. Carter and Hicks in.

YankeeMike said...

Bird doesn't seem to be getting fooled, he appears to be right on pitches, he is just swinging and missing everything. Major slump?

Frank Sergi said...

All will work out, it is a very long season.

Sean Smith said...

2 rbi single for Torreyes when it matters in 2nd for 2-0 lead.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Yankees up 2-1 after 4.

Stan the Man said...

4-3 Yanks after 5. Sanchez likely going on the DL.

will-i-am said...

Betances pathetic in 7th and puts Yanks down 5-4.

Patricia Piper said...

Yanks lose 5-4. 1-4 start to season. Wow!

Alex Antonius said...

I guess if Sanchez goes on the DL, the Yanks bring up Higashioka?

will-i-am said...

CC today. Can he save us again and win.

Guy Padikian said...

Sunday 4/9 1:35pm
CC Sabathia (L)

8. Austin Romine (R) C
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) SS
Eight righty bats.

candycane said...

Yankees down 3-0 after 5.

yankeeclipper21 said...

Yanks cut O's lead to 3-2 on Torreyes 2 rbi triple. Torreyes only Yankee producing when it counts so far this season.

Hobbs said...

Come on Yanks, I doubt want to be the newbie jinx.

muchomachoman said...

Judge solo HR ties it in 8th. 3-3.

jimbo said...

Castro rbi single in 9th gives Yankees 4-3 lead. Judge gets rbi ground out to right side for 5-3 lead. Romine sac fly rbi for 6-3 lead, and Headley scores on throwing error for 7-3 lead.
We needed this. CC kept it close, bullpen did its job, and we finally got production when it mattered.

jimbo said...

Chapman 1,2,3 ninth. Final 7-3.

Linda Pardo said...

2-4 is better than 1-5. Much needed win.

Yankeeforever said...

For the fool stat frauds. The Yankees outscored the O's in the series, but alas, lost the series 2 games to 1. How much and how many mean nothing unless you are talking about WINS.

Jerry Curcio said...

We shall overcome all obstacles. Yes we can.

Teena/Bronx said...

Home opener tomorrow in the Bronx with Pineda starting.

Guy Padikian said...

Monday 4/10 1:05pm
Michael Pineda (R)
vs. Rays - Alex Cobb (R)
1. Brett Gardner (L) LF
2. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
3. Matt Holliday (R) DH
4. Chris Carter (R) 1B
5. Starlin Castro (R) 2B
6. Chase Headley (S) 3B
7. Aaron Judge (R) RF
8. Austin Romine (R) C
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) SS

Finally, Gardner and Ellsbury together at the top of the order again.

Jill Byrnes said...

Torreyes leads the team in RBIs with 7, Holiday is next with 4 and Judge with 3.

Benny Pake said...

Game time, lets win for two in a row.

Hobbs said...

Failure when it counts. Carter strikes out with man on 3rd and one out.

Steve said...

Gardner/Ellsbury tandem nets a run in 3rd for 1-0 lead after 3.

White Knight said...

Judge long left centerfield bleachers home run gives Yankees 2-0 lead after four.

RLA said...

Pineda has been brilliant today.

Greg Stone said...

Headley solo HR in 7th for 3-0 lead.

reinvaldez said...

Yankees blow game open in 8th and lead 8-1 after 8. Pineda with a great outing for the win.

Yanks23245 said...

Final 8-1 win. Two wins in a row. Without Bird and Sanchez.

johnsondc said...

Looks like Sanchez to be out about a month. Also Montgomery to be 5th starter.

Pete H said...

Injuries are part of the game, and we will play through them, around them, over/under them.
WE WILL WIN. Lets go YANKEES.

Mark Wagoner said...

Off day today. Hope all the injured get well quickly and fully. Don't rush anyone back.

Val Avery said...

Jordan Montgomery has been named to start tomorrows game against the Rays.

Pipsqueak said...

WIN METHOD called it again. He said there would be many new faces seeing time with the Yankees before this season is over.

jimbo said...

Montgomery gives us a second left handed starter. Hope it produces for us at the top level.

Kenny Shepherd said...

OK, now we have five starters, three righties and two lefties, plus a very strong bullpen.

Yankeeforever said...

Blake Rutherford is off to a solid start in Charleston. WIN METHOD think Rutherford could be another gem in the mold of Derek Jeter.

bigbadwolf said...

WIN METHOD knows baseball better than possibly anyone else there is. WIN METHOD is the reason the Yankees have dominated baseball for the post two decades.

Jill Byrnes said...

TREASURE OR TRASH?

WIN METHOD is treasure and Bill James is trash.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

It looks like Bird may have been trying to play with an injury to his foot he suffered during spring training and then getting the flu. Hope these several day off gets him back and on track.

Eddie OConnor said...

WIN METHOD is the number one talent evaluater in baseball.

Artie S said...

Think big Montgomery, then pitch big.

johnsondc said...

Afternoon game today fans.

KevMac said...

I hope Pineda can keep doing what he just did last game. Was Romine the catalyst?

Guy Padikian said...

Wednesday 4/12 1:05pm
Jordan Montgomery (L)
vs. Rays - Blake Snell (L)
1. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
2. Aaron Hicks (S) LF
3. Matt Holliday (R) DH
4. Chris Carter (R) 1B
5. Starlin Castro (R) 2B
6. Chase Headley (S) 3B
7. Aaron Judge (R) RF
8. Kyle Higashioka (R) C
9. Pete Kozma (R) SS

Higashioka catching today. First time as Yankees. Ellsbury only lefty bat in lineup.

Yanks23245 said...

Yanks trail 2-0 thru 4.

Chad Greene said...

Yanks trail 3-0 in 5th and score 2 runs and then score 4 in 6th for 6-3 lead after 6.

Saul Irving said...

Montgomery charged with 3 runs going 4 1.3 but looked very good. Very encouraging.

YankeeMike said...

Judge 7th inning HR with a man on give Yankees 8-3 lead after 7.

Cory said...

Final 8-4 win.

Sharon/NC said...

No Bird, no Sanchez, no Gregorius and we are still playing good baseball. The best is still to come.

Paul Hirschman said...

Bird hopefully back in lineup tomorrow.

Wayne Littlebear said...

Judge is doing well. Major improvement making consistent contact.

Rahm Mahood said...

A win take us over .500 and a series sweep.

Guy Padikian said...

Thursday 4/13 7:05pm
Luis Severino (R)
vs. Rays - Matt Andriese (R)
1. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
2. Aaron Hicks (S) LF
3. Matt Holliday (R) DH
4. Starlin Castro (R) 2B
5. Chase Headley (S) 3B
6. Greg Bird (L) 1B
7. Aaron Judge (R) RF
8. Austin Romine (R) C
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) SS

Girardi taking a bit of pressure off of Bird?

candycane said...

Hicks solo HR in first.

Sal Mineo said...

1-1 after 2.

Hal Moore said...

Yanks down 2-1 after six. Severino has pitched well. Yank bats failing again WHEN it matters.

Cory said...

Severino goes seven innings allowing 2 runs and K'ing 11. Then gets rewarded in the bottom of 7th as Aaron Hicks hits his second HR of game, this one with a man on for a 3-2 lead after 7.

will-i-am said...

Final 3-2 win. Chapman save, Severino win, Hicks all 3 ribbies.

Bud Light said...

Sweep of series and 5-4 on the season. Bird had another awful game.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Has Hicks finally come of age. What a nice four outfield combination we have.

Yankeeforever said...

Tanaka starts tonight against inter league rival Cardinals.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Castro 2 run first inning HR for Yanks.

Yanks23245 said...

Yanks up 4-2 after six.

Stan the Man said...

Clippard bails out Tanaka in 7th getting final 2 outs with men on 2nd and 3rd and one out.
Yanks clinging to 4-3 lead after 7.

Eddie OConnor said...

Betances and Chapman throw scoreless 8th and 9th innings for 4-3 win.

Linda Rice said...

I can live with a 6-4 opening 10 games.

Steve said...

Don't forget Romines HR last night, but the single biggest event of the game was Tyler Clippard getting the popup with a man on third and less than two out in the seventh last night, and then getting the third out. Clippard performed WHEN it mattered most, not by creating a run(s), but by preventing run(s).
Learn the WIN METHOD fans and become a knowledgeable baseball fan. Stay away from the ignorant stat frauds.

Yankeelover said...

Can CC keep the train rolling this afternoon. Lets do it CC. Lets go Yankees.

Cory said...

Is everyone on Easter break? Brilliant game from CC today. 7 1/3 innings of one run pitching. Then Warren with 2/3, 2 up 2 down. The Clippard for the save attempt allows HR to cut Yankee lead to 3-2. Also gives up a hit and a walk but does strike out the side for the save and Yankee win. The WIN which is what counts.

Eddie OConnor said...

CC has been special so far.
Has anyone ever started off as bad as Bird has?

Yanks23245 said...

OK. We won a 3-2 game today. BUT we were 1-13 with RISP. How easy would today have been IF we got just 1 or 2 hits when we had those RISP?

Gil McKenzie said...

Pineda tomorrow. Can he come close to last outing and start showing consistency.

bigbadwolf said...

Happy Easter WIN METHOD fans. Game today is at 8:00PM and is the despised ESPN Sunday night game. Big Mike to do it again?

Patricia Piper said...

Best to everyone this joyous holiday. Lets go Yankees and Big Mike tonight.

Carl Hooks said...

A chance to sweep another series tonight.

Hal Moore said...

Nothing like WIN METHOD baseball. WINS and only wins determine the best.

Jimmy Thames said...

Sarcasm.....come on people, you know individual stats are the most important thing is baseball. If not for individual stats how could fantasy baseball, the game for imbeciles, ever exist. Wins stink and determine nothing.
Fact....does everyone realize how stupid stat frauds must be to believe wins are not the most important stat in baseball and how stupid they are playing in the fantasy world.

johnsondc said...

Sunday 4/16 8:05pm
Michael Pineda (R)
vs. Cardinals - Adam Wainwright (R)
1. Brett Gardner (L) LF
2. Aaron Hicks (S) CF
3. Starlin Castro (R) 2B

5. Chase Headley (S) 3B
6. Aaron Judge (R) RF
7. Greg Bird (L) 1B
8. Austin Romine (R) C
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) SS

Gail Holden said...

Waiting for Bird to get straightened out, would be a nice plus. Everyone has to help carry the load at different times.

Cole/NJ said...

Let it be Pineda time again. Just like last week Mike, follow Romines lead, stay calm, throw strikes, and win.

jimbo said...

Bird is back. Two run HR 3/4 up right center field bleachers after Judge rbi triple for 3-1 Yankee lead after 2.

Jed Hough said...

Pineda so far so good again tonight. He is fun to watch when he pitches like this.

Yanks23245 said...

Hicks with another HR. Puts Yanks up 4-1 in 5th.

KevMac said...

Pineda with seven very strong solid innings and leaves game leading 4-2 after seven.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Romine 2 run double in 8th with bases loaded when it counts puts Yankees up 6-2, ices game and still batting. Torreyes follows with a double to make it 8-2.

reinvaldez said...

Mitchell has a sloppy 9th inning, but closes it out as Yankees win 9-3.

Eddie OConnor said...

Another series sweep. Playing pretty good right now. White Sox in town for three night games starting tomorrow.

Ned Porter said...

Jordan Montgomery gets the start against the White Sox tonight.

John Hartnett said...

If Bird is back and productive the way we hoped for that is a major plus. But Girardi has been simply brilliant putting the lineup together each day considering all the roadblocks he has encountered.

Ben Rosen/Israel said...

I love the makeup of this team. An infusion of young quality talent tends to make a team better, particularly when there are several at one time. It seems to push the others on the team to play a little harder and more enthusiasm. Very much WIN METHOD.

Domenic said...

Looking for Montgomery to take another step forward, produce, gain confidence, and become a weapon.

Norm Jackson said...

There are more weapons in the pipeline.

Alex Antonius said...

Has anyone noticed, with our starters getting into the 7th inning each start, the bullpen stay much stronger than ever.

Guy Padikian said...

Monday 4/17 7:05pm
