In the Midst of the Yankees, One Thing Holds Them Back

Now, a lot of people have been talking about the New York Yankees, and all of the moves that they have recently done. (a.k.a. Gray), and now the main question has conspired into this.  “Are the 2017 New York Yankees a World Series Contender?”

I can say a lot about the Yankees, and there is a lot of opinions, but I may say that my opinion is the only right one, and deal with it.  However, here across the beautiful web-scape of the Sports Reaction Nation, we want everyone’s opinion to be heard, so let your voice heard done below in the comments.

The Yankees are one of the Best (Statistically)

I have no problems admitting it.  The Yankees are one of the best, in a statistical sense.  In Batting Average, Runs, On-Base %, and Slugging %, the Yankees are ranked in the top 7 in each category.  The Yankees have many stars, including one of the most spoken of players in the MLB, Aaron Judge.  So on offense, they are one of the best in the league.

Now on pitching, it is not as clear, and simple.  The Yankees are top 5 in ERA, WHIP, and BAA.  Impressive, right?  Well, in quality starts they are 13th, so maybe not the best in that area.  However, the Yankees recently added Sonny Gray, one of the better pitchers in the league.  The Yankees added him, and other pitchers in the bullpen, and another decent starting pitcher, so they resolved there pitching before the deadline.

Do Great Stats equal a Great Team?

 

But like I said, that is my opinion, not yours.  So comment below, and let your voice be heard, Sports Reaction Nation!  Do you think the Yankees are going to the World Series?  And remember, be the best sports fan you can possibly be.

  • Good stuff, man. I love your posts. And I agree here too.
    Before all these moves were made I had the Yankees as an average team. Maybe 83 wins, give or take. But I wasn’t even 100% confident on them making the playoffs at all.
    Now, they have a chance at the division title. And if all goes as planned with Gray & Garcia, they could make a deep playoff run.
