After a couple of frustrating losses over the weekend, it looked like the Yankees might start another winning streak last night, thanks to some more timely hitting in a tight game. Alas, while the Bombers mounted multiple comebacks in Anaheim, they dropped their third straight game in agonizing fashion. This bump in the road has certainly been reminiscent of the club’s struggles from early in the summer.

On the site, Jesse ranks the best individual pitches on the Yankee staff, and Jon analyzes Giancarlo Stanton’s defensive performance, while John analyzes Aaron Judge’s center field defense. Dan will also take us through the week that was down on the farm, Emma previews the September slate, and Andres discusses which players the Yankees can least afford to lose.
