You need a hot team to advance to the WS....Explain the 83 win Cards a few years ago?
The Yanks could not even get on base...They were all cold at the same time and pressing each game...it had nothing to do with HRs...Cashman's approach does work, he only missed one time, 2008....any team wants to make the postseason...you need to understand it is a crap shoot and forget what 90s dynasty teams did,,that is not the norm...His approach is OPS with lefty power hitters piling up the OPS...
You could have your approach and it will fail as well if they all get cold at the same time......they only had 2-3 hitters(Jeter,Ichy and Ibanez) hitting...
Then you have to have good pitching and that is the frustrating part of it all...
