Symmetry

The Yankees have played 91 games and as Jack Curry pointed out, look what happens if you slice the season into thirds with the extra game in the middle

1/3- 21 and 9
2/3- 17 and 14
3/3- 9 and 21

If you take the middle part, 17-14, that equals an 88-win pace over 162 games. That’s a tad higher than I thought they were capable of in March, but only by a few wins. For the whole season, they are on pace for about 84-wins, right about where I thought they would end up. The key to me is that 21-9 seems more of an outlier than the other 61 games. I hope the front office agrees.
