Food for Thought (Again)

The Yankees have been playing at a .750 clip since the All Star break--the best they've done in Franchise history--yes, even better than 1998.

If a team was to play at that clip over a full season, they would win 121 games.

The Yankees lost just seven games the entire month of August, and have improved every month since June.

It'd be one thing to call a .750 a small sample size, but it's been nearly two months. Small sample size, this is not.

Eventually we'll start talking that all of this matters not if the Yankees can't get that ring, so, right now, while you can, take it for what it is and enjoy it.

Nine times out of ten, you won't see a team play this well for this long.
