That is the number of games the 2014 New York Yankees have played.
That is the number of games the Yankees have left to play.
The calendar might prove it is too early into the 2014 season to be concerned, but speaking as a Yankees fan it doesn’t feel like it.
Is 13 games even enough time for the shoe to start to dropping?
Well, the injuries have started mounting in the infield, which is not ideal and makes it harder to stay optimistic. Trust me I am trying, but I am in the minority.
Who is currently injured, not necessarily on the DL but unavailable to play?
PLAYER/DUE BACK (courtesy of MLB.com)
- Derek Jeter / Possibly April 15
- Francisco Cervelli / TBD
- David Robertson / Possibly April 22
- Mark Teixeira / Possibly April 20
- Brian Roberts / Day-to-Day
- Brendan Ryan / Possibly May
So, how are Yankees fans feeling about the team now?
According to an earth-shattering number of tweets… not too well.
But what else would you expect from Yankees Universe, especially after last season.
This was already an angry fan base with high expectations that is now sensitive too, to put it nicely.
The Yankees refusal to spend money they have to fill obvious needs continues to get exposed.

Does anyone else think the Yankees just fake injuries so they can vacation and get paid their ridiculous paychecks??.. Yeah me neither
Does it ever end?! Are you kidding me with the injuries? This is unbelievable. The Yankees are cursed.

Girardi said tightness worries him because it could lead to worse injuries down the road. #Yankees

Currently writing my THIRD injury article TODAY. It would be very nice if the Yankees could stay healthy for the rest of this game.

Epic research from STATS LLC: Yankees' infield tonight has lowest # of combined starts at respective positions since *at least* 1915. (more)
