And So It Ends

The Yankee Quest For Perfection In 2007™ is over. Sigh. The 6-5 loss came against Cleveland. Chien-Ming Wang gave up a couple of runs. (We’re not worried.) Ross Ohlendorf took the L, though he K’ed 3 and was victimized by an error. Phi Hughes pitched 2 scoreless. Kevin Reese and Josh Phelps, both hoping for a job, homered in the effort. ‘Nuff said.

  • Has anyone ever put together stats on the correlation between a team’s spring training record and regular-season performance?
    I suspect there is no such correlation, but it would be interesting to see done.

  • I think there is no correlation. The Yankees, in the old days, were a notoriously bad grapefruit team.

    Is Nixon still rehabbing?

  • Recently, if the Yankees started off badly in the regular season, they tended to do well. Otherwise, they did….well, not as well. I think the low of 92 wins they started off something like 15-6 in April.

  • the positive side of this loss is that it allows the yanks to focus on the tournament without having to deal with the pressure associated with pursuing an undefeated season…better to get that one loss now…

  • Obviously, this is all A-Rod’s fault. His negative team chemistry caused this loss.
    That infernal A-Rod must be traded … to the Devil Rays for nice collection of minor league scrubs!
