Yankees Keep Winning, Not Just a Rebuild


SPANISH HARLEM, NY – The New York Yankees have been on fire. After starting the season 2-4, the Yanks have been on a roll, winning 8 games before finally losing on Tuesday to the Chicago White Sox… I thought this team would be streaky, but I didn’t think they would get this hot.

Speaking of hot Yankees…

What’s so odd about their current streak is that you still have key members on the disabled list with Didi Gregorius and Gary Sanchez injured, yet none of that has hurt this club as they continue to get contributions from the whole lineup. Chase Headley is playing the best baseball I have seen from him in pinstripes and the pitching has been better than advertised, with players like Luis Severino and Michael Pineda now looking like potential front line starters.

I acknowledge that the season is young but the players you wanted to see improve have done so and none more than Aaron Judge, who couldn’t hit the breaking ball last season and struck out in half of his at bats. Coming into this year much was expected and the potential was there, but potential will only get you so far and eventually you have to produce. Judge had a good spring training and won the right field job but as we all know, those numbers don’t carry over into the regular (just ask Greg Bird) though this season he seems more comfortable in his stance and he is showing off some impressive power… a “must watch” player when he is up at the plate.

This team has been fun to watch so far this season and right now the Yankees are riding a wave that no one wants to see end. The season is long and tough times are ahead, but if they continue to play well and minimize those long losing streaks, this season can be a special one. Filled with so much doubt to start the year, this group has shown they want to win and it looks like they’re having fun doing it.

Finally, hope you got those taxes done!

    This is what I hate about Yankee fans. It’s April.

    • vinny from brooklyn

      they always say they are going to win

  • AngryWard

    They are beating teams that they are supposed to beat, which has always been the hallmark of winning Yankees teams. But, as Winston Wolf said in Pulp Fiction, “Let’s not start sucking each other’s d!cks quite yet.” This Yankee winning string has mostly come on a long 9-game homestand against Tampa Bay, St. Louis, and the White Sox. I think their true test will come middle of next week when they go to Boston for a three-game set.

        His reaction to the cup of coffee is priceless as well.

    Settle down. All he’s saying is things look brighter than expected so far. They haven’t had a winning streak like that in years against anyone. I don’t think he was saying they should start printing up championship t-shirts now.

    Ok…. Here we go… Le’ts attempt to turn baseball into WEED DAY for Buddy while relating it to the article. My Cardinals were swept by those DAMN YANKEES!. The DAMN YANKEES hit song was HIGH ENOUGH! HIGH ENOUGH wont be possible in Denver today as 2 CHAINZ is playing a free concert outside my office window in celebration of 420. See picture from previous year. I will be contact high just from walking outside…..

    • AngryWard

      What, the Doobie Brothers weren’t available? I’m not sure this scene was the Rocky Mountain High John Denver used to sing about… but it will do.

      • Big Fatty

        Up In Smoke…. The Mutts bullpen.

    • Junoir Blaber

      Is that Denver’s version of Central Park?

  • Cheesybruin

    Has that Aaron Judge homerun from last night landed yet?

  • We have to tip our caps to the Yanks so far. Is there more of an upside this year for them or the Mets this year? We say it’s the Mets. But it’s a lot tougher to call then all of us thought.

    • Buddy Diaz

      That’s a great question Matt, I definitely think the bigger upside is for the Mets. If healthy they have Elite level pitching. The doubt that the Yankees make the playoffs is legitimate. The Mets I think in my mind expect to make the playoffs and once you get there… if healthy will have the best staff in any series.
