From a 10 game winning streak to a 2 game losing skid. It was just on Monday that the New York Yankees (41-27) posted their 10thwin in a row and were the top team in Major League Baseball. Two days after, they have lost on both days and went down to number two in the American League. Owners of New York Yankees tickets were certainly witnesses for the team’s recent losing streak. Though it is still quite early but the Yankees need to build a solid record which could really help their championship hopes this season.
New York won their 10th game against the Atlanta Braves but they certainly did not want to be at the wrong end of a winning streak. In the three-game stretch of New York versus Atlanta at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees won the first game 6-2 and then lost the two succeeding games 4-3 and 10-5 respectively.
The upcoming three games for the Yankees is against crosstown rivals New York Mets on the road and this is a good way for them to get back on the winning track. With the Mets showing some terrific plays of late, these three games present a really nice challenge for the “struggling” Yankees. New York needs to look out for right-handed pitcher R.A. Dickey of the Mets, who has been very solid in the past months. Dickey has not allowed an earned run since May 22 and has not lost a game since April 18. To provide more drama to the 2012 edition of the Subway Series, Dickey would have been a Yankee in 2009 if New York only pursued aggressively the 37-year-old pitcher.
Despite their recent mini-slump, New York is still one of the top teams in the League, statistics wise. In the Batting category, New York is 2nd in Slugging Percentage with .453, 3rd in On Base Percentage with .336, 6th in Runs with 323, 7th in Runs Batted In with 307, 9th in Batting Average with .260, and 10th in Hits with 603. When it comes to the Pitching category, though, New York is quite struggling. They are 7th in Strikeouts with 559, 8th in Saves with 20, 10th in Earned Runs Average, 10th with Shutouts, 11th in Walks Plus Hits Per Inning Pitched with 1.28, 18th in Opponents’ Batting Average with .255, and 19thin Quality Starts with 35.
New York also has some solid plays from their core players. Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano are tied for 6th in Runs with 47 each. Cano is also 16th in Slugging Percentage with .545 so far this season. All-star Derek Jeter is 3rd in Hits with 90 and 16th in Batting Average with .313. Rafael Soriano is 16th in Saves with 13. Pitcher CC Sabathia is 4th in Strikeouts with 102.
Due to the early success of New York, some players are gaining a lot of votes for the upcoming All-Star Game with the likes of Jeter, Cano, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Raul Ibañez, and Granderson.
