Yes, if you take the month’s win total and stretch it along a 162 game span the Yankees’ would be a 90-win team. That’s great and all, but they are still held down by an 8-16 start and did go 3-3 against the lowly Colorado Rockies and Minnesota Twins which is an immense reason why they are stuck at an even record.
The Bombers must take a step to the “next level” and make up some ground.
July starts off with a meeting against the San Diego Padres (33-46) in which they can get over the .500 hump for good. After that, they travel to Chicago to take on the White Sox (40-39) and then to Cleveland to face the red-hot Indians (48-30).
Simply put, they have to improve their road record (16-21) and take advantage of a manageable upcoming schedule because the real test comes when the All-Star game reaches its conclusion.
They’ll come to Yankee Stadium to welcome in the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles, and San Francisco Giants before they hit the road to play the Houston Astros which means the Yankees can make or break their season in the upcoming month. They will define who they are, whether it’s a good team or bona fide seller is up to them.
