    And, it’s a bad one. Embarrassing. Look at the OPS+ and ERA+ numbers. This is why the Yankees suck.  They have 6 batters who can’t even hit close to league average and two starting pitchers who have been total busts this year.

      You know, there’s plenty of teams w/ these poor numbers, mainly the offense. But not w/ similar payrolls.

      Not as many as one may assume:

      Yankees have 6. No one has more than 6. And, only 2 other AL teams have 6.

      Actually, right now, four of the Yankees’ starters are pitching fairly well.

      The offense, well, it stopped hitting again, about a week ago.

      Yankees have played 22 games this year, including last night, where they have scored 2 runs or less. They are 2-20 in those games.

      Can’t fault a team for losing a game where they score 2 runs or less. But, you can fault them for scoring 2 runs or less in nearly half their games played.

      Yep, looks like last year was fools’ gold blinding many of us with it’s glitter. Where in tarnation is the talent going to come from next year? Cuba?

      The days of the half-billion dollar spending spree to win a ring are over. Look at the teams who are good now, what players are driving it and how did they get there? This is why you need a good GM these days. Until the Yankees get a good GM, we’re doomed.

      Depends on who’s still available after the 2018 season. That free agent class will allow a medicore team to vault into multiyear contender status if they’re willing to pay up.

      With revenue sharing and all the money from TV and the internet these days, all teams have money and they will not allow their stars to get out there to free agency. Maybe some pitchers with TJ in the past and/or who are too close to, or, over 30, will hit the market. But, who wants those long term?

      @ Steve L.:
      All these teams have money, yet guys like Scherzer, Heyward, Sandoval, H. Ramirez, and Greinke made it big in free agency. It’s likely Harper will test free agency. As for players on team friendly contracts, I wouldn’t be surprised if Trout is made available.

      There won’t be a shortage of players available for free agency.

      Harper will change teams; so will Jose Fernandez. The Mets will likely not re-sign Harvey.
