    Four reasons the Yankees have played sub-.500 basebal

    Four reasons the Yankees have played sub-.500 baseball after scorching-hot start
    The Yankees are 22-25 in their last 47 games and 1-7 in their last eight

    By Mike Axisa 21 hrs ago

    1. They've dealt with injuries.

    2. The rotation has come back to Earth.

    3. Bullpen roles are unsettled.

    4. Judge doesn't have much help.

    Worthwhile read. You may not agree with the pov, but he supports and substantiates his argument.

    I completely agree. I think many posters have said very similar.

    My only argument is that the pen is not just unsettled, it's also underperforming



    Ignorance is bliss

    If Lo and Chappy were pitching to expectations, they'd be fine.. Cashman or the CPU is making bad decision out there, Marinaccio and Schmidt shouldn't be in AAA for any reason

    Lo has to have options right? He has to go down at this point, he isn't worthy of a MLB roster spot right now.

    Axisa is pretty much always spot on. Miss RAB so much.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    And if Holmes didn’t blow 5 games in the past month they’d be fine as well.

    Day, Chap has been fine in his past 15 games. Why do you do you continue to give the blind eye to Holmes?
