Typical Yankees Saving All Their Offense For One Night

The Yankees haven’t necessarily come back to life but for one night, their offense surged against the South Side Chicago White Sox. In typical fashion the Yankees couldn’t score runs for their ace and Cy Young applicant Gerrit Cole in Monday’s match up with one of the worst teams in the league. But the next night, they found their bats and took an early lead against ChiTown. The up and down Yankees are hard to watch and even more difficult to love.

“The Yankees were held hitless through the first 5 1/3 innings on Monday, stranding 13 runners on base while recording one hit out of 12 at-bats with runners in scoring position,” reported the Associated added, “The Yankees were 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position, stranding 13 runners on base. Factoring in Sunday’s infuriating loss to the Astros, this is the first time since April 2016 that the Yankees have stranded 12 or more base runners in back-to-back games.” But as if they read the headlines or had a come to Jesus moment in the clubhouse before game time Tuesday, the Yankees woke up and hit the ball.

The Yankees took a 4-0 lead in the fourth inning against the White Sox in Tuesday’s contest. They strung together a combination of hits, sacrifice flies and strong base running to climb back into the fans’ graces. And interestingly enough the Yankees, the players themselves, have this weird vibe that they are still in it. 

“There’s a lot of talent this clubhouse and it’s no secret that things haven’t really been going right, things haven’t really been going our way,” Jake Bauers said. “At some point, everything’s gonna turn around, we’re gonna get hot, we’re gonna win some games and September is gonna come around. We’ll be right in it,” reported

In Tuesday night’s YES Broadcast both Michael Kay and David Cone reiterated the opportunity this team has to “claw back into it” as long as they can string together wins over the next 10 games on the road. To me, that is a big ask, but is it possible, sure. 

The Yankees have to reverse all of their bad habits—leaving players on base, swinging at bad pitches, making mindless errors and swinging for the fences instead of focusing on making contact. They have to win games like they did Tuesday night—take an early lead and hold that lead. And they have to take that positive attitude and confidence they have in the clubhouse and transfer that to the way they play. They can’t win if they save all of their offense for night. I hope they can take that piece of advice and transfer it to field. Wake up Yankees and win.
