That look is the same look that’s on my face right now. Not to be too greedy about it, but the Yankees had a chance for a four-game sweep of the Angels last night. Tanaka couldn’t hold the lead, giving up homers and walking guys, but the day before Sanchez came off the IL only to strike out a bazillion times and commit an error. Last night he was 0-3 with a walk and was charged with a passed ball.
I know, he’s probably rusty having just come back from an injury. But he was a defensive liability even when healthy. Just not my favorite player, what can I say.
Still, the Yankees did a great job beating the Angels with guys like Wade and Tauchman and Urshela. And now they’ve signed Curtis Maybin, who’s way past his prime, but could be reenergized in pinstripes and be a help in the depleted outfield.
Right now, the best thing the Yanks can do is tread water until Stanton and Judge come back, which won’t be anytime soon, sadly.
