Ever Since the Last Rant Post on This Blog, Veronica and I can officially say we have been much “happier” with the team. There is little doubt that the team overall is a big mystery, but we can definitely say we have calmed down a bit in the past month.
The Yankees have shown some great signs lately, a lot of grit and at TIMES some good pitching. Coming into the season I would have never imagined that the most worrisome part of the team would come from the starting rotation.
Then again, maybe that was just poor judgement on my part. The rotation did not have a single foundation piece that you could point to and feel 100% confident in. Tanaka coming off injury, Pineda with a long history of injury, CC coming off the worst 3 stretch ever (still continuing smh), Nova coming back from Tommy John, Eovaldi who throws hard for show, Warren who was great in the bullpen but had no track record of starting.
Of this group, Pineda and Warren had the most consistency – that was surprising. But of course the yankees in old fashion yankee ways decided hey lets lose one of our most consistent starters and opt to leave our LEAST consistent pitcher in the rotation. Im looking at you Sabathia.
