The New York Yankees are 5-10, their worst start since 1997 and a record worse than every team in baseball aside from the directionless Rockies. The old manager is long gone, but his sage wisdom still applies: “It’s not what you want.”
The Bombers will have an off-day to lick their wounds and hopefully enter Tuesday night’s contest not looking like complete garbage. One can hope, right?
Today on the site, I’ll have a new FanPost Friday prompt, Jon will provide a prospect season preview post on 20-year-old outfielder Everson Pereira (last seen with Staten Island in the New York-Penn League in 2019), and Tom will preview the Yankees’ upcoming two-game set against the Braves. Later on, Kevin will provide a fascinating off-day history lesson on Richard Nixon’s somewhat-surprising role in the intersection of baseball and politics, and Ryan will ask for your latest mailbag questions.
1. Aside from the Yankees, which team’s start to the season has been most disappointing?
2. What is something pleasant that you did with your Sunday after the Yankees’ debacle?
