Regarding last night’s Yankees game, the team is fully putting their B-squad players in spots to look bad for a club that is now fully a last-place team. It’s not the players’ fault that they’re the ones who have to look bad. It’s on the Yankees—literally the New York Yankees—for deciding that Jake Bauers is the best that they can do to back up in left field and that Isiah Kiner-Falefa (and on a related note, Aaron Hicks) is the best that they can do for a pinch-hit option.
