When we're getting near the Trade Deadline, the Yankees should NOT, I repeat, SHOULD NOT, acquire a starting pitcher for the stretch drive. Starting pitching is not a problem of any kind. All 5 starters are capable enough. The focus HAS to instead be on acquiring a GOOD solid reliever to improved the bullpen, preferable a 9th inning closer, so Clay Holmes can pitch the 7th & 8th innings before him. OR, on a acquiring an excellent hitting 3B, who is also an above average fielder. Two much BIGGER NEEDS than starting pitching on this Yankee ballclub.

I think Holmes is pitching so well, that he might better serve the Yankees by pitching 2 innings instead of just 1. He could pitch 2 innings, the 7th and 8th, if the starter can go at least 6 innings. An effective Holmes can bridge the gap between an effective performance by the starter and a lights out dominating closer, who can slam the door and get guys out 1-2-3.

4 runs in 27 innings. 1-7 in the order go 1-for-24 with a walk (the hit and the walk by Soto).


Beautiful game by Gil -- this guy is a Major League starter, no doubt about it. But the Yankee offense is 2023 all over again. 10-10 over last 20 games.

"why are we so quick to think the Orioles are special, but our own Yankees are not?"


The O's have gotten to 20-11 by being good all year. Longest losing streak was 2 games. Longest .500 stretch was 6 games. The Yankees had a hot start (10-2), and now have fallen to 10-11, a .476 stretch over 21 games. The O's are a very good team and have been that good all season. The Yankees are a .500 team, just like in 2023 and the second half of 2022.
