It wasn’t pretty at times, but the Yankees found a groove and rode with it. The team’s tailspin in the standings has been halted, and even if they’re still not playing to the level that they expected of themselves, they’ve crawled out of the hole they dug themselves in. The Bombers are dead even at 14-14, and stand just 2.5 games back entering play on Monday despite all the madness that April had to bring.
Granted, they haven’t played any truly good competition to do so. They certainly didn’t face any opposition from the Tigers this weekend when they swept them to get back on their feet. A good litmus test in the Houston Astros is coming to town, however, and at a perfect timing to respond to your feedback about how the team is playing afterwards. Are the Yankees truly out of their slump? Can they still place a chokehold over the league after essentially burning through the first month of the season? If you’ve got questions like these, or any other type of concern, send them in for a chance to be featured in our Yankees mailbag.
Answers will run on Friday morning. All questions received by the night of May 6th will be considered. You can leave your submissions in the comment section below or by e-mail to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com.
