Is This A Technique? A test of Emptyness?

The Yankees cannot compete and must fire Cashman and Girardi.

If they have influence in NYC, they must also fire Jerry Reese and Tom Coughlin.

We can hire anyone from the Mets to run both the Yankees and the Giants.

Off Topic, for sure, but I am growing tired of the Yankee apologists touting the number of runs scored by the 2015 team on RAB. Such a huge increase from last year! what a turn-around! A historic achievement! Yet no discussion about how the runs were clumped. Nothing! This from a site slavishly devoted to metrics. It's as if Donald Trump moved to my little town of 650, making us all statistical millionaires. On average, of course.

you see, the mean and median are different and the distinction is useful. I seem to recall a lot of freakish blowouts where we scored in excess of 10 runs. and I also recall a lot of games where we struggled to score 3 or even less. My guess is that the mean runs per game for the 2015 Yankees is significantly greater than the median.

(I know I could do the analysis myself. More fun to poke the beast.)

BINGO KD.....(I REMEMBER 1 GAME WE SCORED 21 RUNS IN 2015, AND A COUPLE OF 15, AND A FEW 13 RUN GAMES TOO).....OH HOW OUR MEAN RUNS PER GAME IS GREATER THAN THE MEDIAN!!! ALL I KNOW IS I WATCH EVERY GAME, AND WE CAN'T HIT A LICK!.....WE WILL GO 4 GAMES IN A ROW, AND AVERAGE 2 RUNS (OR LESS)!...THEN THE 1 GAME WILL COME WHERE WE SCORE 9, 10,OR 11 RUNS...(THIS IS NOT GOOD OVER THE 5 GAME PERIOD)!!!....AND THE CYCLE GOES ON AND ON FOR MOST OF THE SEASON. EL DUQUE HAD SOME STAT ABOUT THE YANKS SCORING 3 RUNS OR LESS IN AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF GAMES THIS YEAR....THIS OFFENSE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED!!!!!!!!!

Agree. Girardi & Cashman gone. New owners would also help.

The brevity of this post is breathtaking in its terse summary of the current situation.

If Girardi was the owner of the Yankees, he would consult his little black binder and fire Girardi.
