The Next 10 Games will Determine the Yankees 2016 Fate

Following the All Star Break, the Yankees will take part in a 10-game home stand that will ultimately determine what kind of team they really are.   A good team that got off to a slow start, a bad team that can’t compete with the top teams in the division, or the middle-of-the-road team they have appeared to be for most of the season.

Following the break:

3 games vs. Boston Red Sox

4 games vs. Baltimore Orioles

3 games vs. San Francisco Giants

 

The Yankees stand 7.5 games back in the division, and wishful thinking says that a 7-0 run through the first two series after the break would bring them within enough striking distance that they could be buyers at the deadline.  However, if they finish these first two series at about the same position in the standings they are in now, it will likely mean they are sellers.
