Today on Pinstripe Alley - 8/16/23

A collapse to .500 in Atlanta.

MLB: New York Yankees at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees have played 120 games in 2023, and they’ve won 60 of them, and lost 60 of them. It’s been a pretty miserable year, but the Yankees actually haven’t spent a single day below .500. In fact, they didn’t spend any day below .500 in 2022 either. That all might be about to change, with a sweep at the hands of the Braves looming. If the Yankees can’t avoid the brooms tonight, they’ll sink under .500 for the first time since May 1, 2021. Rougned Odor was starting at second base and hitting third on that day, if anyone was wondering.
