The Yankees are guaranteed a win every five games because Luis Severino is starting.
Erik Boland joined me to talk about the differences between covering Joe Girardi and Aaron Boone, fans calling for Austin Romine to start over Gary Sanchez, and Yankees fans’ biggest concern for the season.
Andrew Rotondi of Bronx Pinstripes joined me to talk about the Subway Series, which starting pitcher the Yankees need and how to optimize the batting order.
Back on May 4, I wrote The Yankees Are Even Better Than They Have Played. Back then, the Yankees were 22-10. Here I am today, writing once again how the Yankees are even better than they have played.
The first half of the Subway Series went well with a series win, but the Yankees were very close to losing all three games against a Mets team that looks like it might just go through the motions for the rest of the season.
After dominating the Orioles and Blue Jays, my mood has changed on Sonny Gray. But until he proves himself against the best in the AL, I won’t fully come around on him.
Sonny Gray cost the Yankees three prospects in order to obtain him last season, and due to his performance this season, the Yankees are going to have to give up even more to make up for his incompetence.
Dallas Keuchel was Cliff Lee against the Yankees. He owned them with low-90s fastballs and breaking balls to the point where it was an automatic loss. Not anymore.
Do I want the Yankees to trade for Hamels? It really depends on the asking price. And if that asking price involves Clint Frazier, then no.
Clint Frazier continues to hit in Triple-A and the Yankees have one outfielder who has run out of chances to perform. It’s time to make a change.
