Remember when the Yankees weren’t losing any series? The catch in all that was that they weren’t sweeping any either, so when the bad stretch arrived, their record was bound to look even uglier in a hurry. Yesterday clinched their third series loss in a row and they’re 3-7 in their last 10 games. They remain barely over .500 at 15-14, but with the success of the rest of the AL East, that means that they’re tied for last place with the Red Sox. The offense looks completely lost without Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, and even Nestor Cortes had an ugly slip-up yesterday on the mound. It’s not a fun time.
Today on the site, Jake will run through the Yankees’ top rivals’ Sunday results, Peter will preview the upcoming three-game series with the Guardians, and John will hearken back to better days with the beginning of what became a memorable month for the 1998 Yankees. Later on, Peter will return for the monthly GM poll, and Madison will ask for your mailbag questions.
