Yankees

The Yankees seriously need to step up there game. Theres only two people on the roster with a batting average above .300 ( Jeter and Cano). Thats not really saying much considering that the highest is 305.

If they continue to struggle against teams like the Nationals and the Marlins, then were in for a long season. They started off slow then caught on and won a string of games and now they are back to struggling again. As Mark Tex continues to bat in front of Arod, his numbers have been ridiculous. He needs to keep up this nasty season that he's having so far throughout the rest of the year. He's proven himself as a great defendor and offensive power man.

The next series is against Atlanta. This is a must win series because after that they have the Mets again for another classic subway series. Those games are always fun to watch because the fans are always into the games cheering and jeering. Chien Ming Wang is up next for the starting rotation. This is his time to get a quality start. He is struggling the most with his 0-5 record and ridiculous 12.30 ERA. I strongly believe that if he gets beat in his next start that Phil "Franchise" Hughes needs to be injected into the starting rotation. He's very young at 22 and has proven that he can do well out of the bullpen. I think he has gained the confidence he needs to become a good starter.

Yes, he must be a good starter.

The Yankees do have an "endless cash flow" but a significant move this month by the 31st seems unlikely. Phil Huges is providing is spoiling them with a lock down RP, and Bruney is queitly coming around. On the other hand I could see the Yanks talking to the Rockies about Houston Street who has been stellar this year, but the rockies whould want somthing big in return. Maybe and Ian Kennedy or Andrew Brackman who is struggling lately in the Yankees Class (A) Riverdogs club. Brackman is a known talkent that just recovered from Tommy John surgery. All in all, the yanks whether they make a move or not, if they want to keep up with the Red Sox, they must do somthing about thier bullpen, from within or elsewhere.

As much as I can't stand the Yankees, the fact of the matter is, they are still one of the more talented teams in the league and will contend for a playoff spot. The beauty of a 162 game schedule is that it separates luck and streaks for quality of play and talent. They are a second half team and are already on pace to finish better than last year. Don't forget they have an endless cash flow and will probably make a significant aquisition before the deadline which is still a month away. In the end they will be one of three teams contending for the wildcard. God forbid they actually get it!!

No the Yanks have a bit to gobut a this the glass half's full needs to go.  The other thing that needs to go are those Yankee fans holding on to the 90's dynasty.  The 90's are over and we have yet to win a World Series in this new millenia.  What was it that Don mattingly was going to do to make this a World seriesteam, nothing.  Its time for new start and we are on our was.  See you need to understnad we the Bronx Bombers are not into rebuilding years but what you are looking at are the transitional years.  I was ready to hang Cash- Man but not yet he's seen to have learned from a lot of the many mistakes he's made.  The infield is pretty set for a few years and its a good one and it hits.  The only major concern is that in a few the Captain needs to move along and matbe sooner than later...that kid Pena is coming along.  Now the outfield is a bit messy but will be fixxed next year:  Austin Jackson, Melky and Gardner...I love it.  Now for the pitchinh ...had Wang been pitching the way he can and will the only soft spoy to me is Andy and I loves me some Andy but ya know.....    So here its and its a dam good one...CC, AJ, Wang (healthy), JABBA and Hughes and omg the bull pen will get there before the year is through...Marte, Aceves, Bruny, Coke, Robertson, Anwar, and the old guy and of course MO.  and this is just transitional until we phase out johhny, matsui, Jeter (to a different position).  We are ok, one more year and its on once again... so don't fret

Once Aroid starts hitting more consistently the offense will be fine.As crazy as it sounds,its like teams are pitching around Tex to get to him.The thing that I'd be concerned about is the pitching.Burnett looks like a world beater one start and so-so the next.Pettite has been old for a few years now and why they put Wang in the rotation for Hughes I cannot understand.If Sabathia gets hurt for an extended period their rotation is in a lot of trouble.I think they get the wildcard but the Rays have just as good a shot at it and the Jays seem like they may hang around too.

The Yankees dont have alot of upside, and that's a problem. Even if CC wins 20, its still a push from Moose last year. Tex is a beast

but the rest of the team maybe except for Cano and Joba have already peaked a few years back. AJ CANT stay healthy, Wang is hurt

Pettite is done, Mo is still going strong...but you have to get to him first and the bullpen is suspect. Ownership has a propensity to go

and overpay guys who are 3 years past thier max prime. If ownership would just let Cashman do his job and give him 100% control for

3 years, then things would be in balance ie. home grown talent with reasonable contracts...but they spend like teenage girls with daddy's

credit card. NOT hiring Don Mattingly will haunt them for a long time. The A.L east is getting crazy compettitive, the Orioles are 2 years

from becoming a force, the Rays are there, and the Sox are not going anywhere. Shame that crazy George ran Torre out of town, never

know what you got till its gone! All they have to do is hang in there and beat out Tampa for the wild card...the west and central teams in

second place just dont have the pitching to hang in through Sept. If Tex had signed with Boston, the standings would be UGLY.

So far this year the Yankees look like the streakiest team in baseball and need to be more consistent. When there bats are on they are unstoppable and put up silly looking offensive numbers, then all bats seem to cool off at the same time and they put up lots of 0's. As Arod hopefully gets his swing going, Tex should be fine, Jeter, Damon, Matsui, Cano should all be producing solidly and the Yankees will be in the playoffs. Hughes has looked pretty good out of the bullpen and he looks like he is ready to step in and prove that he can be the quality starter the Yankees wouldn't trade for Santana.
