The Yankees have lost five of seven and they haven’t looked good doing it. When they get starting pitching, they don’t hit. When they hit, their pitching sucks. When their bullpen holds a deficit, the offense can’t come back. When the offense can tack on runs, the bullpen blows the game.
On top of the losses, Aaron Boone has been as bad as ever with days off and bullpen decisions, the Yankees still can’t situationally hit, James Paxton is being treated as a hero for blowing a three-run lead and Giancarlo Stanton is once again hurt as a Yankee. It was a bad week.
