Comments on: Completed Yankees Seasons Under Big Stein http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/7301 This and that about baseball stats.

Not to take anything away from him.

And looking at that table, I can't help but think of the scene from the Seinfeld episode that aired just after the 1995 season (before Buck Showalter had officially been fired):

"You know as painful as it is I had to let a few people go over the years. Yogi Berra, Lou Pinella, Bucky Dent, Billy Martin, Dallas Green, Dick Houser, Bill Virdon, Billy Martin, Scott Marrow, Billy Martin, Bob Lemmon, Billy Martin, Gene Michael, Buck Showalter, … uh, tut!, . . .George, you didn't hear that from me. [George exits] . . . George!"

Still makes me laugh ... 🙂

If you add this season's 56-32 record to Steve's table, the Bronx Bombers have a cumulative record of 3364 wins and 2583 losses(.566) during the Steinbrenner ownership era.

And that whole new team gelled right away.

Also I wonder what the Yankees' total record is during his reign as owner.

and
70% had a W% better than or equal to .549

for those keeping score at home...
