WIN METHOD 2017 SEASON - INJURIES - PERSEVERANCE - BLOOM AND GROW

Hello WIN METHOD  fans.  This season, as so many youngsters bloom and grow, has had far too many downs.  To be contending for the division title with all the injuries our players and team have sustained is remarkable and displays the character of our players and team.  We will overcome no matter what is thrown at us.

The 2017 disabled list (DL) has included Gary Sanchez, Greg Bird, Tyler Austin, Starlin Castro, Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks, Jacoby Ellsbury, Matt Holiday, CC Sabathia, Adam Warren, Aroldis Chapman, James Kaprielian, Gleyber Torres, Clarke Schmidt, and Dustin Fowler.   Several of these players have had their season ended.   For a few of these men recovery will take many months and they can only look forward to 2018.   The others can still contribute this season.  I just want to give a special shout out to Dustin Fowler whose injury may be the most devastating.   I have had a special liking for Dustin for a long time now and I will pray for his healing, full recovery, and return to the YANKEES in 2018.

It is truly hard to believe, that with all the injuries, this team is still right in the thick of the pennant race.   The character of these WIN METHOD players is their crutch, the attitude they display when challenged with adversity is magnificent.
They play with one goal, for the TEAM to WIN.  Everyone contributes, and they win or lose as a team.   The goal is always the playoffs and beyond, in the past, now, and in the future.   These WIN METHOD men will fight to the end.

With every setback, the door of opportunity opens for another player.   Hopefully another youngster will race through the door and seize the chance before they expected.

As WIN METHOD fans, unquestionably the smartest and most knowledgeable baseball fans in the world, we support or team, ownership, management, players, and coaches.   We don't whine and cry, and we don't criticize and blame.
We leave that to, yes you guessed it, the stat fraud losers of the world.

There is most of the season left to play and we will persevere, playing the best we can.   We will continue to bloom and grow.  The draft was wonderful and the WIN METHOD got what it wanted in several draftees.   Our number one selection will be something to look forward to.  LETS GO YANKEES.

Lets hope for the best and the recovery for all the injured. Thanks WIN METHOD.

YankeeMike said...

Stay strong and believe Dustin.

Alex Antonius said...

Lets go guys, yes you can and yes you will.

Barry West said...

I'm with you WIN METHOD.

Zhaire said...

Dustin, stay strong mentally and then get strong physically.

Yankeedoodledandy said...

Lets go Yankees.

Carl Hooks said...

Get well Dustin. Yes you can and will.

David Stern said...

Pineda tonight. Hope he screws his on straight tonight.

Xavier Young said...

My best to Fowler and all the other ailing Yankees.

Erica Johnston said...

I wonder if any other team in the history of baseball has had these many injuries to so many players in one season.

bigbadwolf said...

Fowler is in good spirits. He said he was told surgery was a success and he would be out about 5 to 6 months.

Tommy Lee said...

Good news from the horses mouth.

Guy Padikian said...

Carter at 1B. That is a downer, but hopes he produces when it counts tonight.

Deb F said...

What a feather in the cap it would be for WIN METHOD and the Yankees if the team makes the playoffs this season.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Andujar back on Yankee 25 man roster and is in Houston.

Joel Lindros said...

The Yankees trail 1-0 after two innings of play.

Hector Lopez said...

Yanks down 3-1 after 5.

jimbo said...

Yankees score five two out runs in 6th and four two out runs in 7th on Gardner grand slam to take 10-3 lead over Astros. Pineda went six acceptable innings. Mitchell in for a 1,2, 3 7th. 10-3 Yanks after 7.

Alex Antonius said...

10-3 Yankees thru 7.

jimbo said...

Mitchell closes out win with solid three innings. Yanks win 13-4.

will-i-am said...

Final...Yanks win big 13-4.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Big win tonite against the team with the best record in baseball for the first half of this season so far.

NJYANKEE said...

Can only hope last night was not a one game wonder, but that it was the start of a good run of winning baseball.

George W said...

Monty tonight. At least we are not playing from behind this series. Lets win it.

Linda Rice said...

Nice blog post WIN METHOD. You sure have built a juggernaut of a farm system. Hope everything blooms and grows and comes to fruition.

Dane Ostroff said...

Frazier also has been called up from AAA Scranton.

Todd Griffin said...

The Yankees can't keep everyone on the 25 man roster. Eventually Castro, Holiday, etc will get back.

Deb F said...

Todd, true, but all our talent gives management options plus it fosters competition for playing time, thus hopefully driving performance. Performance when it counts is needed before individual stats is the key. Performance when it counts creates wins.

Yankeeforever said...

Pitchers usually take more time yo bloom and grow. Montgomery has reached the top level, bot he is still learning and developing. So far so good. Earn a win tonight Monty.

Another first timer for Yankees today. In right field Clint Frazier as Judge gets day off.

Wilsonsway said...

I'd almost rather see Judge at 1b even thou he has never played there. Still, he does need day off once in a while.

Carl Hooks said...

Everyone gets their chance to contribute. That is what team is about. The stat frauds have no idea about that.

candycane said...

0-0 after 2.

candycane said...

0-0 after 4.

Sal Mineo said...

Yanks fall behind 2-0 after 5.

jimbo said...

Yanks score five times in top of sixth, four on Gregorius grand slam for 5-2 lead.

candycane said...

Yanks up 5-3 after 6.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

Frazier leads off 7th with his MLB HR. WIN METHOD must be in seventh heaven.

jimbo said...

After Chad Green pitches the 6th and 7th scoreless innings. In comes Betances for the 8th and stinks beyond belief. Chapman now in with men on 1st and 3rd and 2 outs. Betances has already allowed 2 runs to cut the Yankee lead to 6-5 and both runners are his responsibility.

jimbo said...

Chapman gives up a double and Yanks down 7-6. Betances and Chapman have killed the Yankees so far this season. The a K for 3rd out after the damage done.

jimbo said...

Yankees go down 1.2.3 by Houston closer. Another dreadful one run heartbreaking loss.

will-i-am said...

Final, devastating loss 7-6.

Felix Lopez said...

It is hard to believe that Betances and Chapman can choke so often. Betances still can't hold a runner and a runner in a wheel chair can steal a base every time on him.

Mark Wagoner said...

I was hoping the losing this way was over. Losing late inning games because of the bullpen is killing us.

Steve said...

Ten one run losses in June. Take two meaningless runs from several of our blowout wins and give them to just five of those ten losses and look where we would be in the standings. Meaningless runs defines the meaningless stat frauds. Wins are what counts, not how many runs you win by or your meaningless run differential. Come on you clueless stat frauds and debate here where you won't get banned instead of banning posters who know baseball at your clueless feckless forums.

Warren Hammond said...

Louie Louie starts today to try to win a series we should have already won.

johnsondc said...

Steve......the stat frauds won't debate here because their lies and deceptions won't pass the smell test. Their combined ignorance is second to very little.

Judge, Sanchez, Wade, Frazier all starting. But why is Carter?

Gus Papa said...

Mark my words. The worm will turn and this team will make a major impact on the AL East division.

Deb F said...

Hey guys, I don't bother going to the stat fraud forums anymore. Most have failed or failing anyways. Those dolts are brain dead fools.

Yanks23245 said...

Yankees down 5-0 thru 5. Astro starter threw 105 in 4 innings and we did not score.

will-i-am said...

Final. Loss 8-1.

Hobbs said...

I see the stat frauds are overjoyed with Carter delivering a big ninth inning RBI single. The hit was really big in their eyes because it prevented the Yankees from being shutout for the first time this season.

Cory said...

Have we hit bottom yet? We do need to hit bottom before we can rise back to the top.

Sharon/NC said...

We have so many roster changes, lineup changes, injuries, etc, there has been no cohesion among the players. Maybe all this will work its way out.

Cory said...

Just about the half way mark for the 2017 season. Three consecutive 10 games losing stretches. Now in second place in division. Need to play better and more consistent better baseball in the second half of the season. The injuries have been devastating.
10. 6-4
20. 7-3 = 13-7
30. 8-2 = 21-9
40. 3-7 = 24-16
50. 6-4 = 30-20
60. 7-3 = 37-23
70. 2-8 = 39-31
80. 4-6 = 43-37

Hal Moore said...

We do need to put wins together for most of our coming 10 game periods.

bigbadwolf said...

Happy Independence Day America and WIN METHOD Yankee fans.

Dave Matthews said...

Lets celebrate the 4th with a sweep.

Bud Light said...

Tanaka starts tonight's game.

Patricia Piper said...

When the Yankees come together as a team, watch out. The sooner the better. Would love to see it this season.

Saul Irving said...

Come on guys. Yes we can and yes we will.

Yes WIN METHOD fans, Carter is in the lineup yet again. I know we let the manager manage and accept he knows more than any of us. Buttttttttttttttttttttttt!!

Stan the Man said...

Guy, there has to be a reason we are not factoring into Girardi's reasoning.

Linda Pardo said...

We just have to start winning games. That usually stops bad thoughts dead.

Tommy Lee said...

Time for a win, the first of many.

Pepe Gonzalez said...

Yanks get on board first with two first inning runs.

Pipsqueak said...

Yanks lead 2-0 after four, but have had several opportunities and failed, keeping Jays in game.

yankeeclipper21 said...

Yankees up 2-1 mid 7th as Sanchez give Toronto run on throwing error. Now it will be up to the bullpen.

jimbo said...

Yanks 2-1 thru 7. Betances in for the 8th.

NJYANKEE said...

Betances gets through the eighth. Would be nice to get a couple of extra runs.

Chad Greene said...

Another nail biter.

will-i-am said...

Headley bases loaded double breaks game open in 8th as Yanks score 4 runs for a 6-1 lead. Carter ends another inning in this game with a ground ball double play.

jimbo said...

Chapman working hard to blow this game also. Score now 6-3. Just got a K for 2nd out, one man on.

jimbo said...

Chapman gets third out, saved by Headley diving catch on very hard hit line drive. Yanks win 6-3.

will-i-am said...

Final, a 6-3 win. thank god for those runs in the 8th or Chapman would have blown another game.

Eddie OConnor said...

Every game is a struggle, but at least this one was a win.

Lloyd Flowers said...

Now to add a win tomorrow.

Barbara Hand said...

CC is off the DL today and starts today's Independence Day game. He was sharp as a tack and winning when he got injured. Hope he comes back today the same.

Sharon/NC said...

Happy 4th everyone. God bless America.

Yankeeforever said...

Happy 4th. Lets win.

Cory said...

The Yankees last night only had to bat in 8 innings making 24 outs and Chris Carter was responsible for 6 of those outs. One batter of nine, 1/9th, responsible for 1/4 of the outs.

NJYANKEE said...

Carter likely will be on bench today..

Carter still playing. Surprised he isn't batting cleanup. He could be more devastating there.

Wilsonsway said...

Carter is devastating no matter where he bats in the lineup, sadly most of the time it is devastating to his team.

candycane said...

Happy July 4th Yankee fans.
0-0 after 4.

Augie DeFonce said...

After getting 8 straight outs to start the game, CC can't get the last out in the 3rd and gives up 4 runs. Yanks trail 4-0 after 3.

candycane said...

Yanks down 4-1 after 6.

will-i-am said...

Final 4-1 loss. Yanks go down without a whimper.

Gil McKenzie said...

Maybe, just maybe if Chris Carter who imitates afraud were chucked this team could put a real player in the lineup and win a little more.

Jill Byrnes said...

It looks like we are marching in place.

White Knight said...

Still half the season to go. No reason to give up yet. Things change very quickly.

Zack Norris said...

A win tomorrow would give us our first series in a month.

Frank Sergi said...

Pineda today's starter.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

You have to win one series before you can win two in a row. Today can be a first step.

Guy Padikian said...

Out with the broken fan and in with a working air conditioner. A left handed lineup for the first time this season.

Val Avery said...

Yankees down 1-0 after one.

candycane said...

Yanks down 1-0 after 2.

Cal Fuerst said...

Pineda getting pummeled and being replace down 5-0 in the 4th with no outs.

Hugh Frazier said...

Choi brings joy with 2 run HR in 5th to cut Toronto lead to 5-4.

Wilsonsway said...

LOL...out with the broken fan.

Norm Jackson said...

Sanchez with bases loaded and one out in 5th, fails when it counts and pops up. Didi up with bags full and 2 out. Didi produces when it counts with a 2 run double and a 6-5 Yankee lead.

Erica Johnston said...

6-5 Yankees thru five after trailing 5-0.

candycane said...

Yanks up 6-5 after 6.

Raul Vasquez said...

Betances in for the 8th and has to be relieved after 1 K and 4 W's giving up the lead and leaving bases full with one out. Betances is becoming another Carter. Totally useless.

Raul Vasquez said...

Warren in with bases loaded and one out gets K for 2nd out. Big WHEN it counts clutch pitching. Yanks only down one coming to bat in 8th.

candycane said...

Yanks down 7-6 after 8.

Cory said...

If Yanks come back in 9th they will have to do it against a real closer in the Jays Osuna.

will-i-am said...

Final...another one run loss 7-6.

jimbo said...

An interesting fact comparing Jays reliever Osuna and pathetic Betances. Osuna in over 30+ games the entire season has only walked 3 batters. Pathetic Betances walked 4 in 5 batters to blow today's game for his team. He has also walked 1 of every 3 batters he has face for the entire season. PATHETIC.

Eddie OConnor said...

Well we lost another series.

Patricia Piper said...

What a nightmare we are going through.

bigbadwolf said...

Would like to thank the posters here for their respectful posts during this Yankee skid. Only one post was deleted in the past several weeks and it was by a stat fraud who used many expletives attacking the WIN METHOD and the posters here.

Deb F said...

bigbadwolf...I bet it hasn't been easy for some. It is uncanny what his happening for the past month. Hope it turns out to be a movie script where everything turns out for the good at the end.

Yankeeforever said...

One small step, if the Yankees never ever in out life time allow Chris Carter to be put on the MLB roster.

Sal Mineo said...

Good news, Betances can't blow another game today.

AAA said...

Possible Holiday back tomorrow.

Phil Jenkins said...

One more chance to take a series before the all star break. Monty, Tanka, and Louie Louie are the listed starters.

Ty Keel said...

Sweep the first place Brewers.

Oscar Hron said...

Yes we can.

Warren Hammond said...

I can almost guarantee if the Yankees sweep this series with the Brewers they will surely win the AL East this year.

Ziggy Mann said...

SWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

Stanley Chin said...

Yes, stay positive people. Yes we can.

KevMac said...

Hope Monty and the bats get us off on the right foot tonight.

6. Clint Frazier (R) LF
7. Ji-Man Choi (L) 1B
8. Austin Romine (R) C
9. Tyler Wade (L) 2B
Girardi did a little tinkering with Judge and Sanchez at 3 and 4 holes.

Teena/Bronx said...

Time to rise and shine guys. Step up.

Victor Grandozi said...

We are do to put things together, and when that happens look out at the top.

Hobbs said...

Yanks score first and lead 1-0 thru two.

Stan the Man said...

Choi produces when it counts with 2 run HR in fourth to give Yankees 3-2 lead and still batting and now in a rain delay.

Domenic said...

Back in action. 3-2 Yanks after 4.

Cal Fuerst said...

4-4 after 6.

Ursula F/Texas said...

Yankee bullpen in 7th, 3 walks, grand slam, double, rbi single, walk, putting Yanks down 9-4.
The bullpen has been sucking eggs for a month now.

will-i-am said...

Yankees down 9-4 after 8 and I ain't staying for the 9th. I am getting frustrated.

Claude Raines said...

After last nights debacle Louie Louie starts today to try to even this series.

Guy Padikian said...

Saturday 7/8 1:05pm
Luis Severino (R)
vs. Brewers - Brent Suter (L)
1. Brett Gardner (L) DH
2. Aaron Judge (R) RF
3. Gary Sanchez (R) C
4. Didi Gregorius (L) SS
5. Chase Headley (S) 3B
6. Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
7. Clint Frazier (R) LF
8. Austin Romine (R) 1B
9. Ronald Torreyes (R) 2B
Still no Holiday, probably keep him out until after the break, along with Castro and Hicks. Frazier, to me, gives the impression he is flailing at the plate, but he is young yet.

Augie DeFonce said...

Louie Louie gives up first inning 3 run HR. Yanks down 3-0 after first.

Bud Light said...

Yankees down 3-0 thru four and are hitless.

Wilsonsway said...

Yanks get 2 in 7th, trail 3-2 after 7 and on track for another 1 run loss.

Cory said...

Yanks rally in 9th for 3 runs on a 3 run walk off home run by rookie Clint Frazier.

will-i-am said...

Final a walk off HR for a 5-3 win.

NJYANKEE said...

Maybe maybe, just maybe the stinking worm is turning.

Yanks23245 said...

Also, Betances and Chapman pitched scoreless 8th and 9th innings.

Tony Gigante said...

Just have to win tomorrow and go from there as the injured return after the All Star game.

sid greenberg,nyc said...

First series after the break is in Boston for four games. This could be "really huge" series and I hope it turns our way.

Gus Papa said...

I remember several years ago the Yanks going into Boston and trouncing the sux mercilessly taking four games. Redux?

muchomachoman said...

Lets finally win a series tomorrow.

yankeeclipper21 said...

Tanaka this afternoon to try to win a series in a month.

Barbara Hand said...

Hopefully Frazier walk off puts a charge into this team. Yes we can.

Saul Irving said...

I just hope we see more and more of the youngsters gaining confidence and having productive at bats creating wins.

Steve said...

Louie Louie had one pitch cost him and the Yankees three runs and then he shut down the Brewers for the next six innings. Betances and Chapman pitched scoreless innings keeping the Yankee chances viable. The bats awoke in the last three innings led by rookie Clint Fraziers triple and home run for four of the Yankee five RBIs and making for the win. Teams win guys with players producing at key times to create those wins. Baseball is all about WINS.

Jill Byrnes said...

Only in the small minds of some stat frauds the Yankees are rebuilding. No frauds, we are playing to win it all this year and yes we can.

johnny said...

Lets go Yankees.

Six left handed bats today.

White Knight said...

Tanaka like Louie Louie did yesterday puts Yankees in 3-0 hole in first inning giving up a 3 run HR.

candycane said...

Yankees down 4-0 after 2.

Vinny Ferrero said...

Frazier 2 run HR cuts Brewer lead to 4-3 after 4.

Yankeelover said...

Tanaka immediately gives up run in 5th and is saved further disaster by Warren getting final 2 outs of inning with 2 men on. Yanks down 5-3 mid 5th.

Anonymous said...

The official language of Saint Barthélemy is French.

Tom Loughlin said...

Yanks still down 5-3 after 8....Had a man on second with no outs twice this game and never scored them. Too many times when you play for the big inning you get burnt. Scoring one run at a time can lead to a bigger inning or keep you in the game. One run is usually better than 0 runs.

will-i-am said...

Final 5-3 loss and Yanks go 1 for 16 with runners in scoring position. The ultimate fail when it matters most. A sure way to make for losses.

Vladimir Tinzik said...

Another series lost. Better be ready for next weekend.

Cory said...

This has really been a sad stretch of games.

White Knight said...

I fully expect a rousing run after the All Star game.

Lori Kelly said...

I think Judge swings and misses at far too many pitches.

jimbo said...

Lori, I agree. I would he could do better if he didn't swing so hard and just hit the outside pitches to right. When the pitchers come in on him, then pull the ball. It doesn't make any difference how hard you hit the ball nor how many home runs you hit. It is far more important to any and all players to be able to produce the most often when it matters most to the team and win games. Yes, I know the stat frauds are unable and or unwilling to understand this concept.

bigbadwolf said...

Mid season break. The Yankees have four days to pull their act together if they want to win their division and or make the playoffs this season.

Tonight is the farce called the HR Derby. The stat frauds will all be agog measuring how far, velocity, launch angle, how many balls are hit for home runs in a meaningless contest. None of which tells how much any of the participants help their team to win games by producing when it counts.

Hobbs said...

All things considered we're really not all that bad off. Only two games behind Bos in the loss column for 1st. Considering all of our injuries which have decimated the lineup, and some of our horrible pitching, we are not in a bad position at all.


If what we've just seen is the Yankees without several key players, then I think we have a bright immediate future when we include Hicks, Castro and Holiday. Those are three very important bats.


And now that Choi is an instant replacement for Carter, I like our chances.

Todd Griffin said...

Yes guys and gals, it is only wins that determine the best. Anything else is camouflage and or hype.

Jeff Miller said...

What the all star break means to me...a four day sabbatical from baseball.

Yankeeforever said...

Thinking about this weekend series with the sux. Would love to win at least three of the four games.

Jimmy Thames said...

AAA.....You forgot a bay against the righty unless we are only playing with 8.

RLA said...

Jimmy, look again. And I am RLA.

Jill Byrnes said...

For information purposes.....Aaron Judge dominated and won the Home Run Derby tonight in Miami.

Peter Raines said...

Judge was awesome.

Sean Smith said...

RLA, Your lineups are feasible. It still ALWAYS comes down to each individual producing when it matters.

Cole/NJ said...

When it counts, not how much nor how many. The only how many that matters is wins.

Warren Hammond said...

With three weeks left to go until the trading deadline, we will see if the Yankees make any deals. They have so many top prospects in the minors at all levels, if they wish to deal any I hope they did their homework on who they will positively hold on to and who they may be willing to let go.

YankeeMike said...

The superior American League defeated the inferior national league again last night in the 2017 All Star game 2-1 in ten innings.

Phil Jenkins said...

I don't think the Yankees will sign Harper. The dollars that would have to be wasted on Harper who has shown he is unable to lead his team to great success would set a bad precedent in then having to sign the bloom and grow youngsters developing in the system.

Deb F said...

I hope the Yankees don't sign Harper. We have less expensive home grown winners blooming and growing.

Alex Antonius said...

There is no reason to pay anyone the money some of these individual stat guys are getting unless they take you to the playoffs and well beyond every year.

Frank Harris said...

This is the last day fans, Yankee baseball and the run to the finish line is back tomorrow.

Rahm Mahood said...

Time to produce when it counts and win games.

Stanley Chin said...

Lets take the bull by the horns and win our division. Yes we can.

NJYANKEE said...

The Yankees have traded lefty reliever Tyler Wade to the Milwaukee Brewers for AAA first baseman Garret Cooper. Cooper is a power bat that is hitting for average and power in AAA.

bigbadwolf said...

Yankees open four game series in Boston tonight. Sunday is a day night double header. Makeup of a rain out in April.

Kenny Shepherd said...

Monty listed to start tonight's game one.

Jules Carle said...

A left hander at Fenway for us.

Pineda season done and also next season. Needs Tommy John surgery. That explains much. Greg Birds issue found, has been diagnosed with os trigonum inflammation. Possible surgery likely. That explains his problem. The os trigonum is an extra needless bone behind the ankle.

Tough luck for Pineda and the Yankees. Just hope the Yankees do not go after the dog Quintana. Pineda with a bad arm was 8-4 this season while the dog Quintana is 4-8 and has been a sub .500 pitcher for his career while being lauded by the stat frauds.

If the Yanks don't make the playoffs this season I can't be down after all the injuries this team has had. Pineda out does give a rookie or two and opportunity.

If Girardi can manage this team into the playoffs this season, it would be a giant feather in his cap and possibly rank him as the best manager in baseball.

By chance will Chance Adams get a shot? or maybe someone else that isn't hurt?

Oh well, we lose our best pitcher, 4 games over .500 at 8-4 and the team as a whole is only 4 games over .500 at 45-41. Do we throw in the towel, heck no, we leave that to the stat frauds.

The Yankee season reminded me of this old Nat King Cole song called SMILE.

Smile tho' your heart is aching
Smile even tho' it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by

If you smile
Thro' your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shin-ing thro' for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide ev-'ry trace of sadness
Altho' a tear may be ever so near

That's the time
You must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worth-while

If you just smile
