I have to give credit where credit is due. Brian Cashman came up big at the trading deadline.
The Yankees are now just 1.5 games out of the second wildcard, 2.5 out of the first wildcard (we're coming for you Red Sox) and 5.5 out of first in the AL East.
The big moves to get Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo have paid off in a big way. The Yankees are 7-1 since the moves. I know, I know, they have played the sisters of the poor, but they had been losing to the sisters of the poor. They also have been doing it with a makeshift pitching staff with so many out with injuries or COVID.
Hopefully the Yankees can keep this going. I'm a little worried about Rizzo being out now with COVID, but I think they will still be all right. It shouldn't be too long before they get Cole back and that will be a big help. Even Minor Leaguer Montgomery's return would be a help.
Things are looking up for the Yankees and I hope we can make a big run at winning it all. Let's do this Yankees!
