the days new York Yankees Had the best record in baseball and seemed unbeatable are long gone.
In fact, they’ve been among the worst teams in the American League for some time, and if it weren’t for the huge division lead they made it into the first half and the teams’ inconsistent play behind them in the AL East, their season after season. The presence would be in grave danger at this time.
After peaking in June, the Yankees are getting progressively worse each month.
“# Yankees Records by month this season: April: 15-6 (.714); May: 19-9 (.679); June: 22-6 (.786); July: 13-13 (.500); August: 4-12 (.250), tweeted Max Goodman of SI.com.

The numbers don’t lie: the Yankees were on top of the world in June, but since July, they’ve been worse: not mediocre; downright bad
Yankees’ problems go beyond injuries
Yes, they’ve got injuries: Aroldis Chapman, Giancarlo Stanton, louis saverino, Michael King, Chad Green, Harrison Bader, Matt Carpenter, Jonathan LoaisigaAnd other key players have either visited the injured list or are currently on it.
However, good teams find a way to deal with injury woes: The Los Angeles Dodgers, for example, have swiftly managed a similar situation.
Because he has a deep farm and confidence to turn his talent into the big leagues.
Oh, and they’re not afraid of the impact of any service time.
Sometimes, it seems that the Yankees have some of the best players in the organization (current examples are clark schmidt And oswald parazzaAnd ron marinacio until recently) are in Triple-A and not in the majors, where they are.
The Yankees have a job to return to the powerhouse they were in early in the season.
