I find it funny to read comments by some Yankee fans concerning the four game sweep of the Subway Series to the Mets. I keep reading "Wait until September". "We'll see when the World Series is on and the Yankees are playing". My favorite was: "We were saving our strength for Boston". Stop with the false bravado folks. This team will be lucky to finish the month of June with a .500 record with the way they are hitting.So here we are on July 1, 2013 and let's look at how their schedule turned out:
Los Angeles 1-1
The only consolation is that the Yankees have a chance to redeem themselves in July by playing 11 games against the sub .500 Minnesota Twins and the Kansas City Royals to close out the first half of the season. Whether or not they they can take advantage of playing the Twins and Royals remains to be seen.
I'll revisit the plight of the Yankees at the end of July.
