Some Yankees’ Notes

March 6, 2018

According to the odds, only one of the six baseball division titles is up for grabs.

Almost certainly there is/will be more mystery than that.

After all, why else do they play the games?!

The Yankees are slight favorites to win the A.L. East, something they have not achieved since 2012, which for them seems a long time.

After their incredible run of 20 World crowns and 29 legitimate “1 of 1,” A.L. first place finishes in 44 seasons (1923-1964), the Yankees failed to finish first from (1965-1975) and again from (1982-1995.)

Like, love, dislike or truly dislike them, the fact a 5 season skein of not finishing first (they made the ‘offs twice as a wild card team in those 5 seasons), is their third longest such streak, attests to their great history, starting with their first pennant in 1921.

Later in the week more on the division odds, eventually some previews but tomorrow join us as I write about a wonderful performance of “It Shoulda Been You,” I attended.
