Count the Yankees?1 Big Reason Why Now Is Not the Time


The Yankees popped up and they were 94 The Rays were six games behind the Rays in the American League East and are currently at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings when Aaron Judge hit the outfield gate at Dodger Stadium on the first weekend in June.他们在输球数中落后金莺队10 场,战绩为47-25 战绩,距离联盟第三个外卡席位还差3 1/2 场。 They just lost five of six games en route to the Rockies and Angels. For many fans, it felt like rock bottom.

They are -从那时起,他们10-让你认为莱昂内尔·梅西在迈阿密的新足球队会比他们更容易得分。 Yankees fans have to look at their teams with Judge and without him and think his 100 million dollar contract is actually one of the shrewd deals in baseball history.

Just the thought of Judge coming back and the Yankees making a move like that, especially after all the dull baseball the Yankees have played the past six weeks. But writing them off completely is also crazy until we all see if they make it back to that team ing until We’ll all see until we all see if they can get back to that team. 100 team, they have a healthy judge.

“We stink right now,” manager Aaron Boone said after being swept in Anaheim.

But the judge should be back soon. Giancarlo Stanton’s bat has shown signs of life recently. When Nestor Cortez was fully fit again, he was back in their rotation alongside Gerrit Cole and Carlos Rodon. Maybe when this happens, if Anthony Rizzo and DJ LeMahieu are finally able to get their bats back on, the Yankees will look better than the 35- Nine games left before the trade deadline? That’s pretty unusual for a team that almost always makes the playoffs and hasn’t had a losing season since Bill Clinton was president. They finished last and didn’t even think about going into the first place game of the season.

But all they’re doing now is trying to get themselves into the tournament, with everyone in the AL East ahead of them. Guess what this means? Entering the tournament, earning one of those three wild-card spots gives them a chance to be the 2023 version of the 2023 Phillies. And all the ‘

This Yankees team has yet to prove that it is as resilient as the Phillies were last October. Still: This team is organized around the skill and will of one great star, and that’s Bryce Harper. The Yankees have such a star in Judge.

We now know all the problems with the Yankees. But what we don’t know, because no one knows, is how much Judge can change things when he comes back. That doesn’t mean they can suddenly turn into the late-summer Phillies they were a season ago. But, with 47 games left and no idea if reinforcements are coming at the trade deadline, that doesn’t mean they can’t either.

Buck Showalter is having his own problems, the Mets are farther than the Yankees The wild card is much farther away, and he talked the other day about how the recent pitch timer seems to be going faster. But as we approach the deadline, the entire baseball clock seems to speed up each season before it turns into a sprint to the end of the regular season.

Things are moving fast for the Yankees, who are now home against the Royals, then the Mets, and then three games against the Orioles, who may be the best story of the entire season. But it’s too early to dismiss the Yankees until we see what kind of stories they can still write when the protagonist of the story is No. 88.
