So, in terms of team totals, the Yankees offense is third best in the league and the Yankees pitching is fourth best in the league.
Then, why do the Yankees have the 10th best record in the league?
It seems like a team with the talent of the Yankees should have least the fourth best record in the league. Since they’re six slots under that expectation, they’re under-performing.
This all begs the question: What causes a team to under-perform?
Well, if it’s not lack of skill, it’s got to be lack of motivation and/or lack of leadership, no? Oh, wait, it’s “back luck” – right? Really?
