Grade: A

There is not much you can possibly complain about with the offense right now. For a team that struggled to scratch across a few runs for the majority of the season, the notable subtractions of Carlos Beltran and Alex Rodriguez provided lineup flexibility.

Additionally, the heroics of Gary Sanchez lifted the lineup to an astounding month.

The Yankees ranked fourth in the league in runs (148), seventh in batting average (.274), and fifth in home runs (42). Let’s just say the good old-fashioned “Bronx Bombers” were restored.

New York’s team BABIP was .312, meaning that the majority of contact was made with authority, resulting in an excellent chance of reaching base.

The lineup has been circular, with numerous contributors taking on greater loads. If anything close to this clip persists, there is a great chance that the Yanks will be postseason bound.
