Yankee Numbers Don’t Add Up

Entering the second half of the season, the numbers don’t add up for the New York Yankees. At the All-Star break, the Yankees were mired in third place, trailing both the Red Sox and the Devil Rays in the AL East..

And it doesn’t get any easier. Consider these numbers:

67: Games remaining for Yankees after All-Star break (considerably less  than half)

43: Of the Yankees remaining 67 games are against teams currently above .500

7: Of the Yankees next 8 series are against teams currently above .500

10: Games remaining against traditional nemesis Angels

7: Yankees on opening day roster currently on the disabled list.

0: Number of wins by Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy (and Carl Pavano too 🙂

.713: Yankees OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage) with RISP (runners in scoring position)

26: Yankee rank in the above category out of 30 teams

.238: Alex Rodriguez batting average with runners-in-scoring-position

32: Of the Yankees final 51 games are away from Yankee Stadium

4.59: Runs per game Yankees are averaging in 2008

5.98: Runs per game Yankees averaged in 2007

1993: Last year the Yankees failed to make the playoffs
