Quick Hit: Sound the Alarm...

The bullpen can't get it done anymore. The Yankees are now 2-8 in August and 15-21 since July 1st. This is not good.

Clay Holmes 4 Blown Saves since July 9, all coming in losses.

Morning of July 3, 58-21. Morning of August 13, 71-42, meaning they went 13-21 during that time. That's a .382 winning percentage. That's seven weeks of being the Detroit Tigers, who are .381 on the whole season.

Oh, and Joey Gallo has a 115 OPS+ for the Dodgers, and Jordan Montgomery has 11 IP with a 0.00 ERA.

Good points. I did find it a little bit surprising that Cashman came away from the deadline without a real back end of the bullpen threat like Mantiply, Robertson or possibly Bednars. I think the Yankees will respond to this by moving Chapman back into the closer's role. Giving the options. I don't know if that's such a bad idea because they have a little bit of time to test that out and see if he can resume his duties. Holmes suddenly just can't throw strikes. Maybe he needs a break.

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