The Yankees: 43 Straight Games with at Least 3 Runs or More


Recommended Posts


Although they lost to the Athletics tonight, the Yankees just played their 43rd consecutive game in which they have scored at least 3 runs or more.


The last time that they were held to under 3 runs was on May 29th against the Angels in California.

Scott, for what it's worth, the Yankees have quite often bullied and slugged their way to division title after division title over the last 11 years, but in that time frame, they usually run into good teams with good pitching that KO them in the playoffs. Since 2000, they won the pennant in 2001 and 2003, the World Series in 2009, and that's it.

And just like that, it happens 2 days in a row !!!

For 2 consecutive games now, the Yankees have been held to less than 3 runs since this thread was started. :smile11:

    • IMO Bradish, Grayson, Means, Kremer, Wells Kimbrel, Cano, Webb, Baumann, Baker Coloumbe, Perez, Irvin AAA - Hall, Tate, Zimmerman, Akin It makes a lot of sense. We could bring in the Japanese reliever to have optionable depth on the RH side. We could sign Robertson. We wouldn’t have to trade a big piece for Luzardo/Cease. 
    • Do I care what Frazer thinks?    Yes,  he has been around for a while with Pittsburgh, Seattle before being part of a 101 wins in Baltimore.  He has a perspective that is interesting. I like his points about why Hyde is such a good manager.   His comment about Holliday was good to hear.     Glenn kept trying to get him pumped up about the O's being special and Frazier enjoy his time here.  Thinks they are winning group of players, some special moments but overall he wants to be on winning team and says there are other places to win. He know the chances of returning to the O's are slim.   And he also wants to get paid which is not in the cards with the O's going forward. Overall a nice interview.
    • Kimbrel has always made the most sense among the free agents. He’s the best RP that will likely be available on a 1-year deal. He really wants to close. The Orioles have a closer vacancy, and some money to spend on 2024 payroll, but seem entirely allergic to multi-year contracts. Kimbrel is a LONG way from Bautista at this stage of his career but he’s still a good RP (playoff meltdown this year notwithstanding). So long as the Orioles are willing to move him out of the closer role or play lefty matchups with Hall/Coulombe if his performance warrants that, it’s probably the best acquisition we can reasonably hope for given a multi-year deal seems unlikely. 
    • Glad the O's drew the right straws here, but still don't like the lottery system. Maybe make the top 5 worst teams draw straws for the first 5 picks and then go by record after that if you really care about tanking.  None of this is really going to stop tanking though, since tanking is really about owners cutting costs rather than getting high draft picks.
    • MLBTR is reporting that that O’s are “seriously engaged” with Craig Kimbrel.  https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2023/12/orioles-seriously-engaged-on-craig-kimbrel.html He fills a need.  It would be nice just to have him in the bank.  We could pair him with Robertson, and have a really experienced back half of the bullpen.  It would get us through 162 with the potential of a Bautista September return, and a deadline deal for the playoffs.  It also frees Wells up for the open rotation spot.     
    • I often forget that the O's have Wells and Hall capable of filling either a starting or bullpen role.  And just imagine if Tate really can return to his 2022 form. IMO it makes the O's one Closer away from a top bullpen.
