OMG! Teh 6-6! by Larry Mahnken
Here's some meaningless data:
The Yankees have started 6-6 fifteen times in their history:
In those 15 seasons they've finished with an average record of about 91-65 (shorter schedule and a strike) or 94-68 in 162 games.
When they won the next game, they finished with a .604 winning percentage, when they lost they finished with a .570 winning percentage. When they won they made the postseason 60% of the time, lost they made it 33% of the time.
In general, it doesn't mean anything. The first 12 games of the season don't make or break it, unless you go something like 1-11 or 11-1 -- and not necessarily even then.
What happens right now won't have a huge impact on how they end the season, and how they're playing right now will have no relevance in October. --posted at 1:44 PM by Larry Mahnken / |
