The Yankees schedule was released today as with the rest of baseball. Lets take a look at it and then give new Yankees and AL East record predictions.
Here’s a look at the Yankees 2020 Schedule:
As I review it here is what I noticed:
Against the Red Sox: 7 of the 10 games against the Red Sox are in Yankee Stadium (That’s what they get for cheating! HA HA HA). That’s a projected 8-2 record at worst right there.
Against the Rays: 6 of 10 are in Yankee Stadium. That’s a projected 7-3 mark there.
Against the O’s: only 4 of the 10 at home BUT… the O’s are the worst team in the game as such that’s a projected 9-1 mark.
Against the Jays: 7 of 10 are in toronto. That’s a projected 6-4 mark. Yankees always play well in Toronto but the Jays are tough.
All added together the Yankees will have a 30-10 mark against the AL East alone.
For the 20 games against NL East Opponents its even home and road and 10 apiece.
Against the Braves: 2 at home and 2 in Atlanta. I will go 3-1 and Cole is going both and Paxton in 1.
Against the Mets: 6. 3 in each borough. I will go 4-2 Yankees take the series. A 5-1 Yankees record would not surprise me though.
3 against the Nats: Games in DC, The Nats never start fast, so I will go 2-1.
4 Against the Phillies: with 2 in NY and 2 in Philly. I will go 3-1 Yankees.
3 Against the Marlins: in Miami. Easy 3-0. HAHAHA
That’s 15-5 against the NL East. I combine that with the AL East and get a 45-15 record.
As for the Rest of the Al East.
The Blue Jays Schedule plays out to about 33-27.
The Rays to 31-21. Hardest among the AL East teams.
The Red Sox to 19-41. Yes they project that bad minus Sale, Price, Betts, ETC.
The O’s project to 17-43.
Here’s the standings:
- Yankees 45-15 –
- Blue Jays 33-27 12
- Rays 31-29 14
- Red Sox 19-41 26
- O’s 17-43 28
As you can see it’s a runaway. The schedule sets up perfectly for the Yankees.
A 50 win season is possible if they get really hot. I still stick with my prediction.
#28 (World Series Title) is coming Yankees fans!
