The Yankees certainly aren't doing themselves any favors. They have split 4 different 4 game series' after losing the first two games of the series. Don't believe me? Check this out:
April 4-7 vs. TB:
Loss 13-4, Loss 6-3, Win 9-2, Win 6-1
April 25-28 @ CLE:
Loss 6-4, Loss 4-3, Win 1-0, Win 5-2
July 3-6 vs BOS:
Loss 7-0, Loss 6-4, Win 2-1, Win 5-4
Aug 4-7 @ TEX:
Loss 9-5, Loss 8-6, Win 5-3, Win 3-0
Note: The series from May 12-15, the Yankees dropped the first two, but then won the third and lost the last game. Also, from May 30-June 2 the Yankees won the first two at Minnesota, and lost the last two. In the beginning of June, the Yankees went win-loss, win-loss against the Royals.
So, in 50% of their 4 game series' in 2008, the Yankees have dropped the first two only to salvage the final two games. Just think where the Yankees would be in the race for a playoff spot if they woke up before they were in the 2-0 hole. I know, I know - Michael Kay would tell me something about the fallacy of the predetermined outcome. Screw you Michael Kay. By the way, I can't find the definition of that phrase anywhere, so I'm not sure it even exists.
That is doing things the hard way.
