Quick Hit: Glass Half Empty

The Yankees lost to the Royals and went 13-13 in the month of July. Two days to fix the team until the offseason...




imagine if the Yankees end up playing .500 hall for the rest of the season and win only 99 games and the AL East while all their players get rested and healthy for the play-offs.

In that scenario, I'd expect them to play sub-.500 ball in the play-offs and get bounced out even with the bye for winning the division. Even if by some miracle they got past the Twins or Rays or whatever, they'd win at most one game against the Astros. You can't turn excellence off and on like a light switch. If the Yankees are a .500 club July to September, they'll be sub.-500 in October; it won't matter that they were the '98, '61, '39 or '27 Yankees April to June.

Terrible way to lose a game, but taking 3 of 4 is what the Yankees should have done.

I have a feeling that by sundown tomorrow David Robertson will once again be a Yankee.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
