Well its not that clear cut, their starting pitching got significantly better when they went on their successful winning streak.
Its not because Joe was mixing and matching, remember the Yankees were playing mediocre ball prior to winning 10 straight and taking off in June.
Its the length of the starters that changed things, not Joe maneuvering about pieces.
No the contention is that you quoted 46 wins and I am saying that it is the starting pitching turning around that has pushed us to that mark or our record would be no better than Boston or Tampa, etc.
I am not taking any credit away from Joe, what I am saying is that it is simplistic to quote the amount of Yankee wins and then attribute it to the mixing and matching.
Where were we when the starters were not pitching well, Joe was still mixing and matching and we were muddling around .500 at best, until the starters became dominant for a stretch.
That's the point.
Worked out nice today didn't it princess?
Another whiny little nancy girl who vanishes when the team wins
