The season, which started with frequent losing, culminated with a fire sale at the trade deadline, and raised hopes with a hot August, is nearly over. The Yankees are two games from being eliminated with six to play. Their season could very well end tonight.
If that is the case, it is in the Yankees best interest to see what the kids can do over the last week. Judge is injured, Austin has struggled, and Severino might very well be suspended, but that shouldn’t stop the Yankees from putting fans out of their misery of watching Jacoby Age-berry and Brett should-retire-to-become-a Gardner.
Let the fans watch the final few games played by those who may have somewhat of a future with the team – Mason Williams, Rob Refsnyder, Austin, and even Torreyas.
Then, bring on the hot stove.
