New York Yankees: Significant Reasons Why You Should Remain Optimistic

Opportunities

In terms of long-term offensive success, average with runners in scoring position does not matter.

As mentioned, the offense is 4-for-57 in the last six games with RISP but that should not come off as a startling statistic. Of course, it’s frustrating but think of all the chances the Bombers are getting to score in this early in the year.

They’re not only getting lots of runners on base (.333 OBP) but they’re also stealing lots of bases (they lead the MLB with 13) and getting in better position to score runs.

Slumps like this are hardly ever a 162-game long issue, and it’s more than promising to see this lineup put themselves in ideal scoring scenarios. This funk will turn around.
