Now everyone knows the bad news for the Yankees, the string of bad news started with the injury of Aaron Judge his right big Toe hit the right field wall at Dodger Stadium.
The Yankees have lost the past two weekends to The Red Sox, who lost five of six games to the Red Sox, had just been swept at Fenway Park. Without Judge in the batting order, they score a run and a half less than they did with him; they don’t have a baseline these days; and their rookie shortstop Anthony Volpe hits .119; Carlos Rodón still hasn’t pitched an inning for them; their record is currently 10 The game is worse than it was a year ago, At the time we thought they were going to escape the whole world in AL East.
More bad news? Since the Yankees are 38-13a year ago All-Star Game, their record is 59 -59, including the playoffs. That was pretty much a season that just ended. 256 Baseball.
Nevertheless – you need to keep at it – actually There may still be reasons for Yankees fans to be optimistic about their team’s chances, even if that team is Now 1/2 game behind the Rays. Judge will return eventually, even if no one is sure when. Rodón is recovering; Nestor Cortes is doing the same. The Yankees don’t have to play anyone in their division – the Yankees are 10-12 So far against the AL East — until the Orioles come to Yankee Stadium the week of July 3. In such bad news, it’s a good thing, trust me.
but what they really need right now is the Mariners And the Rangers are on their way to Yankee Stadium to get their big men started hitting home runs again. No, not the that
Once and for all, they need Stanton to be who and what they think He’ll take him to New York after 151 – Home run season for the Marlins 780. They need him to play outfield and stay on the field to at least give the Yankees some danger the judge in his committed a crime; very healthy. This is Stanton’s sixth season in New York, and Yankees fans don’t think this is the time for the big man to make a big splash. They think it’s over.
Since coming to the Yankees, Stanton has played 473 Possible
game. He hit 94 home runs, which means He hit twice as many home runs as he did in Miami last season. His current batting average is .117 and his average score is . 151 (and strikeout) at Games he’s played since leaving IL. Can he change everything with the timid Yankees offense we’ve seen lately? he can not. But if he gets hot, that means he can change a lot starting Tuesday night against the Mariners.
Here’s what Stanton said Sunday at Fenway :
“I just need to find my rhythm and catch the ball earlier …the reps are helpful, but…I need to [make] an impact while I’m inside, so I just need to figure it out.”
Here’s what Stanton’s manager, Aaron Boone, said:
Boone talks about his players at no Through this period without Judge, he’s clearly more important to his team than any other lone player in the game right now. It’s just that the Yankees simply haven’t done much in this regard. Anthony Rizzo hits it. 151 Looks softer than soft serve ice cream. DJ LeMahieu is at. Josh Donaldson at. Their best hitter of the game is Gleyber Torres. He is in.204, with home run. Once Judge sat down, no one stood up for the Yankees.
This is where Stanton comes in.
He has now what he talked about on Sunday The ones represent two weeks’ worth. This is a huge opportunity for the slugger – looks like a bust in New York since hitting 39 home run and knock 77 in his first Yankees season — when his team needs him to do as much as possible, he’ll be super excited.
Listen: The Yankees found them last season The kind of record they achieved during the All-Star break puts them at the end. Boone has every right to tell them they have plenty of time to change the script and finish the season the way it started last year. guess what? They can tell themselves that, based on how they’ve played lately, they could be worse off than just nine games behind the Rays in the loss column. They could clearly see that the team they played the night Judge was injured — the Dodgers — had the same record as them and was also swept over the weekend.
Time is still there. It is also the perfect time for Stanton to stand up. Another big man at Yankee Stadium.
