So the Yankees got some pitchers at the trade deadline and now they can’t hit. Can. Not. Hit. Especially with runners on base. Plus there are those pesky errors that continue to rear their head. After watching the pitiful series in Toronto, I’m not looking forward to this weekend against the Sox. Or to the series with them after that. Or to the one after that!
I won’t belabor my thoughts about Aaron Judge. What’s the point. I blame the Judge T-shirt I bought along with the Home Run Derby. I won’t belabor my thoughts about Gary Sanchez either. He’s a kid. He’s still learning. He may or may not turn into a good defensive catcher. What I will say is that this Yankees team is struggling and it’s painful to watch after such a great start to the season.
Do they fire the hitting coach? Do they acquire another hitter? Do they light candles, hold hands and chant the evil spirits away? They need to do something or they’ll get buried at the bottom of the AL East.
There. I got that off my chest.
