Check out the numbers. The Yankees have gone 11-13 in their last 24 games. (Which, for some reason, a few Yankees fans find to be exciting?) This covers the games from April 25th through May 22nd.
Over those 24 games, the Yankees team BA/OBA/SLG line is .248/.311/.382 (in 918 PA!). Yes, we’re talking about an on-base average close to three hundred and a slugging percentage less than three-ninety. Yikes.
During this span, Yankees batters have almost as many strikeouts (179) as hits (205).
On average, over these 24 games, the Yankees are sending 38.2 batters to the plate per game. Here, keep in mind, that the minimum sent to the plate in a 9-inning game would be 27 batters. So, the Yankees are averaging close to just one batter per inning over the minimum.
Not so big and hairy, if you’re smoking the objective pipe, is it, Mr. Cashman?
