There is almost a formulaic predictor to the comings and goings of this Yankee team. I am both the formula and the predictor.
As you have noticed; the Yankees go on a roll, then give it all back. Then, they repeat that sequence.
A basic law of physics is that, " every action has an equal and opposite reaction." So the Yankees win six, then they lose six ( okay 5 ). They win 5 and then they lose 5 ( possibly 4). If the Yankees were an actual, competitive team, the numbers would work differently.
But no matter what; the Yankees stay within striking distance of .500 and, eventually, return to that equilibrium. Matching the physics law which says, " water will always seek its own level."
So it is time for a new prediction; The Yankees are about to begin their third best winning streak of the season. The math suggest that this will result in a win streak of 4 games.
But this one is going to play out a little differently; The Yankees will win 3 of the next 4 games which, is , basically the same for this Yankee team. Ike Davis is the "X" factor, possibly contributing to the one loss.
In summary, physics tells us that, " a team which sucks at the core, also sucks at the mother lode."
