But you have to get to the playoffs first. And that was his point. The Yanks beat a lot of bad teams with homeruns off of midde relievers. Those homeruns were the back breakers. Now they may get a single and tie a game or hit a warning track fly and then precede to lose that game now.

I still think if Cano and Teix can be the main source of power they will be fine.....
