Great first half, but still need a little tweaking for me to be fully confident of their chances in the postseason....Castillo seems to be more of a priority than another OF'er.....been fairly fortunate injury bug wise. So far so good.

For how great their record is, they have a lot of questions and concerns for the second half, and subsequent post season where this whole year will be judged as a success or a failure.

Still too many all or nothing hitters. You aren't going to be facing 4th and 5th starters in post season, and generally teams that hit a lot of home runs & strike out a lot don't fare well come postseason time.
The rotation is still a concern; Cole gives up too many home runs, Taillon, last night notwithstanding, has been a disaster the last month, Cortes is approaching his career high in innings, Severino is hurt.........AGAIN! Who's going to be the #2 behind Cole when the ALDS starts.
And the main thing that I'm concerned about is the Astros. Unless they sweep the double header on Thursday, the Yankees will lose the season series to the Astros. It doesn't seem like much with a 64-28 record, but the Astros are only 4.5 back, and if they sweep the double header will be only 2.5 back. And while the Yankees play in the AL east where 5 teams are at or above .500, the Astros are one of only 2 teams in the AL West with a winning record. Yes, Oakland did just win the series, but the Astros have a ton of games against the A's/Angels/Rangers in the second half of the season, while the Yankees get the AL East gauntlet and if that's not enough still have 4 games to play with the Mets. If they end the season with the same record, the team that wins the season series would get home field, and right now it's 3-2 in favor of Houston, with 2 games remaining in HOuston.

Right. Every team could use tweaks. Castillo and a couple of contact hitters inserted in the bottom half of the order would be optimal. Trade or DFA Gallo. That's about it. A 200 run diff is lapping the rest of the league right now. Unreal.
The rest of the division outside of BAL has been a huge disapointment.

You said the same at the beginning of the year
Who doesn't have questions and concerns

They are/have gotten some bullpen reinforcements in Loaisiga and German (spot starter as well)….not sure if Britton will return in time and/or how effective he will be….Carpenter is a blessing and I’ll give up some defense in exchange for his bat (adios Gallo). One more starter would do the trick—Castillo (though asking price includes prospects Volpe AND Dominguez—pass, he’s a FA after the season, right) or Montas.

Default Cashman Comments

Yankees fans, as much as you guys look forward to Spring Training in just a few short days, you should still be questioning your alleged owner in deciding to bring back your alleged general manager. Check out this commentary by Ben Verlander and Alex Curry, just fresh out as of this writing. They're right.

You deserve someone better than Cashman. This is unacceptable.

No comments since February?



Here's one. If the Yanks had a brain trust that the New York Football Giants currently have, there would be room for optimism. They keep bringing in these unproductive players and often over-pay them. No end is in sight.

Hard to watch without Judge (and I grew up with the post dynasty late 60’s teams). Don’t get me started on Cashman and the roster he has assembled. Looks like Judge could be out until sometime in July.

This article says they are hoping Judge will be back by the end of the 2023 season.

The Yankees hopes of making the playoffs just got dimmer.
