The New York Yankees may have played .500 ball, but some of their 44 wins certainly were exhilarating, to say the least.

No, it was not the best half for the 27-time world champion New York Yankees.

In all of major league baseball, their runs scored ranked 24, their home run total ranked 20, their total earned run average ranked 19 along with finding themselves 7.5 games out of first place in the American League East.

Additionally, they sit 5.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and must jump over six teams in just over two months in order to secure a spot in the postseason.


Things just aren’t great in Yankee land but we did witness some great moments during the very few flashes of brilliance that came from the 2016 New York Yankees thus far.

Let’s take a look back at the best wins for what was an inconsistent first half.
