New York Yankees

After getting smoked by the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 in their 4-game series, the Yankees enter this evening’s matchup with a 5-5 record. Coming off a highly successful season that saw New York made it all the way to the ALCS; Yankees’ fans were expecting a fast start to the season. Notwithstanding those expectations, the Yanks are currently ranked 3rd in the AL East. New York has shined at times this season, but overall things have been extremely disappointing. What’s worse is the fact that Boston is starting to build a comfy lead at the top of the division. To help combat the Red Sox’ momentum, New York will be sending Luis Severino to the mound tonight.
