Take a look at this stat. The Yankees have 20 wins on the season, only 8 of those wins are come-from-behind. Meaning, they trailed at some point during the game, any point. That's not such an alarming stat, but let's look a little closer.
Here's the breakdown of the 8 come-from-behind wins:
- 4 times the Yankees were down by 1 run and came back to win
- 4 times the Yankees were down by 2 runs and came back to win
That's it. Not once this season have the Yankees overcome a three-run deficit to win a game. Does that sound like any Yankee team you've followed? Maybe it isn't just my imagination that this team seems to deflate when they get down.
