A Good Reminder

The Yankees hot start has been exciting to watch, but it has also opened up a dangerous possibility. Would the team look to add players at this year’s deadline in order to win a championship now? If the Yankees are still playing like this in two months, the pressure to do so will be enormous.

So I hope Brian Cashman has archived this series on his DVR. Houston looks very good, and boy can they hit, shredding three Yankee starters, including two who would be part of the playoff roatation.

That’s what I take away from the series, the Yankees don’t have the pitching to compete with the best teams. And with 3/5ths of the rotation already likely to be on the open market after the season, they need to stay away from the lure of short-term rentals to get it. This is a process that won’t be completed in 2017, but patience is always very, very hard for this team. Hopefully, this weekend shows them to just keep their heads down and work with what they have.
