Well, Gary Sanchez was exciting. The problem was CC in today’s finale against the Jays; he got clobbered and the Yankees ended up losing two of three. I must admit I was hoping the momentum of having all the kids up at the major league level would give the team a boost, but the lack of consistent pitching and timely hitting is still a problem.
This is the tough part of being in a rebuilding phase. You have to deal with the reality that the team isn’t a juggernaut just yet. There are too many missing pieces – pieces Cashman will need to address in the off-season. McCann seems to be on the bubble and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him leave. Headley made another error today (he’s having an Eduardo Scissorhands kind of year), so I’d love an upgrade at third. And I know it’s sacrilegious to say this but is Brett Gardner pulling his weight these days? Not so sure.
Anyway, it’s on to Anaheim for a series against the Angels. May the rally monkey be on vacation.
