Quick Hit: Yanks Lose Again

by Paul Semendinger

August 28, 022


On Friday night, the Yankees didn't score in the following innings:


They managed to win that game 3-2.

On Saturday, the Yankees didn't score in the following innings:


They lost 3-2.

Today, the Yankees didn't score in the following innings:


Count them up, that's 29 innings. The mighty Yankees were able to score in just three of those innings.

Did we mention that the Yankees were playing the last place Oakland A's, the team with the worst record in the American League and the second worst record in all of baseball?

Did we mention the starting pitchers on Saturday and Sunday both came into the games with ERAs over 6.00?

Did we mention that the Yankees managed a grand total of five hits over their last two games?

The Yankees are not good right now. At all. No window dressing can change that. At all. They are now:

  • 9-16 in August

  • 14-22 in the second half

  • 22-29 since July 1

But in 78 of their games, they have a 1.000 winning percentage, and there are five wins in five games out of the past 10. Why should we be worried at all?

I worry when they use hitters who will be on their post-season roster, and they go 1-for-50 or so against pitchers with >6.00 ERAs.

Again, and I don't understand why you don't engage with this point, the issue is not the Division or the bye, but rather them getting beat like the A's usually do (the Yankees having a worse record than the A's since the All-Star break) in the second round of the playoffs.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
