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.
