So it Seems… The Yankees Are Built for a Wild Card


Good morning everyone and welcome back to the blog. After a long weekend I did not want to get going this week but work had other plans for me unfortunately. Work is getting overwhelming and it is almost to the point where a change needs to be made not only for my happiness but for my health as well, but that’s another blog post for another day.

The Yankees made a bit of a statement this weekend and into this week taking three-of-four games against the Boston Red Sox and then coming out strong against another Wild Card contender in the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees are still a longshot at being the American League East Division champions but after this strong play of late there is still a chance. I personally won’t be disappointed though if the Yankees ultimately have to settle for a Wild Card game and neither should you and I am prepared to tell you why.

The Yankees may be the best team built for a Wild Card type do-or-die game when you look at things on paper. The Yankees starting pitching has been fantastic overall and the team has the choice between Masahiro Tanaka or Luis Severino in their Wild-Card Game playoff while the bullpen has been equally is good, if not better. With everyone ready and rested the Yankees could easily get 5-6 innings out of their bullpen on any given night and those tend to be shutout innings as well.

The offense is good and can be explosive and the talent on this team tends to outweigh Joe Girardi’s bad decision making more times than not. The Yankees can put up 10 runs on any given night and in a one-game scenario that’s just hard to beat no matter who you are.


The Yankees are built for the long haul in my opinion and so are you and I my love. HEY YOU. I love you. Have a great day everyone.
