Trouble Brewing in the Bronx?

BRONX, NY: The New York Yankees started the 2024 season as one of the hottest teams in baseball. The addition of generational superstar, Juan Soto, paired with the talents of Yankee captain, Aaron Judge, seemed to be a recipe for success. It was and is. However, the two superstars cannot carry the Bombers to the promise land alone.


The Yankees finished a three game set against the Reds, in which they were swept at home. Taking their season record to 54-35. Good for second place in the AL East, 2.0 games back of first.


54-35 is still 19 games above .500. Many would call that a success thus far. Looking into the Yankees, they have lost 14 of their last 19 and have lost five of their last six series and this was the first time they’ve been swept in a three-game series all year.


The injury bug has mostly stayed out of the Bronx this year and the bad performance on the field comes down to the players. The lineup outside of Judge and Soto have taken deep dives and the pitching staff has all taken a tick back as well.

 

Aaron Judge's personal hitting coach had this to say after the Yankees disappointing series loss..

“They've lost 13 out of 18 while he's hitting like an MVP. The Yankees offensive player development is terrible.”

Yankees captain chimed in his own opinion as well..

"Every good ball club, go back to all the past World Series champions, they've always had a little skid at some point. I think that's what defines a team is how we respond to this. How are we going to take the next step to get things going..."
 

The 2024 season is quickly going by. The All-Star break is coming right around the corner and the Yankees front office will have plenty of questions they have to answer by the deadline. With lots of time left, the Yankees can make a comeback, but watching their games shows a team spiraling quite quickly.
