  1. In the second paragraph where you write “road record” you clearly mean “record in one-run games” — right?

  2. I was just thinking the same thing during today’s game.

    Once they opened it up late in the game so Mo wouldn’t come in, I was thinking that Mo hasn’t pitched that much this season. But I knew it was because they haven’t really had too many games where he was needed to pitch because it seems like when they win, they win big.

  3. Going farther, it also seems like they score a lot late. So it may be a close game, but doesn’t finish a 1RG since the Yanks always seem to tack a run or more on late.

    I should look this up rather than keeping thinking and assuming.

  4. one run games fine. Check how many times the brewers have been hammered and hammered their opponents. Amazing.

  5. Maybe I’m wrong in assuming this, but I should think playing in more one run games can’t hurt the yankees. They have the best closer, so when they are up 1 they will win 95% of the time, and should they been down one or two runs, the offense has the ability to turn those deficits into 1-runs leads.

  6. Yeah, but don’t you worry about everyone not named Mo? Robertson has come on of late, but you can’t trust Joba (despite statistical success), and you don’t know what Chan Ho Park is gonna give. I worry about close games in those middle innings.

  7. The Yanks will make the necessary moves. They’ve still got Melancon and Nova in the minors that they can call up to the bullpen if they need to. I’m not really all that worried.

  8. Do the Yankees have a disproportionately high number of 2-3 run games?
