The New York Yankees, the most prestigious team in the US Major League Baseball (MLB), recorded 9 consecutive losses in 41 years.
The Yankees lost 1-2 in the 2023 MLB Washington Nationals home game held at Yankee Stadium in New York, USA on the 23rd (Korean time). Carlos Rodon, who returned from the injured list, pitched well with 6 hits and 1 run in 6 innings, but the other line knelt in silence with 2 hits. Since the match against the Miami Marlins on the 13th, he has recently fallen into a 9-game losing streak. 안전놀이터
The Yankees’ 9-game losing streak is the first in 41 years since September 14-22, 1982.
The Yankees are the most prestigious team in the MLB. He has won 27 World Series titles so far. He has collected the most championship trophies among MLB teams. The tradition and discipline of the Yankees club is also one of the reasons why it is evaluated as a prestigious team. In the past, they also attracted star players with astronomical investments. The team’s annual salary this year is also $279 million (approximately 373.3 billion won), the second highest among all clubs.
However, the Yankees are going down with a disgraceful record this season.
Recently, the 50% win rate collapsed amid sluggish 9 consecutive losses and fell to the bottom of the American League. As of the 23rd, it is recording 60 wins and 65 losses, with an odds ratio of 0.480. They are 17 games behind the leading Baltimore Orioles.
In fact, even advancing to the postseason has gone through the water. They are 10.5 games behind the third-place Seattle Mariners in the wild card competition, which is the last line to advance to fall baseball.
The Yankees have a team batting average of only 0.176 during the last 9 consecutive losses. During this period, he recorded 0 points twice and 1 point 3 times. Last year’s MVP (Most Valuable Player) Aaron Judge returned from injury, but his batting average has also been sluggish at 0.200 since August.
A dishonorable record is beating the Yankees. If the Yankees lose the game against the Washington Nationals on the 24th, they will lose 10 straight games for the first time in 110 years since 1913. The Yankees’ longest losing streak was 12 in 1908.
The last time the Yankees were at the bottom of the planet was in 1990. They are 5.5 games behind their rival and another prestigious club, the fourth-place Boston Red Sox.
