“Welp, this road trip is off to a ridiculous and disgusting start” “How is it even possible to suck so much”

The New York Yankees’ struggles continued on the road and their fans are beginning to panic after being swept away by the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals are a solid team that have now taken the lead in National League Central. However, the Yankees are supposed to be the best team in MLB. Being swept away was very unexpected.

Road streaks are always hard to predict, but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone expecting the Yankees to go 0-3. Although they maintain their lead in the American League East, their claim as the best team in baseball is in question.

The Yankees won’t return to New York until August 15, so they must start racking up road wins soon.

@Yankees Welp, this road trip is off to a ridiculous and disgusting start. Picking up where the last home stand left off, smh excruciating!

After starting the year as the best team in baseball, this downward trend really worries fans.

@Yankees How is it even possible to suck so much

This loss heightened the fears of many New York Yankees fans. Many of them expected to come through the AL at the start of the season. Now, after a few weeks of playing .500 baseball, those expectations are crumbling on Earth. With the playoffs fast approaching, the Yankees must re-establish themselves as MLB’s elite team.

@Yankees I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet, but the situation around this team is worse than people are making it out to be. They’ve been playing under .500 now for 7 weeks. I don’t know what needs to happen, but this team needs a reality check. This track may disappear before you know it.

@Yankees One season fluke I thought this team was for real that first half now there falling apart

Many fans cite the New York Yankees’ lack of action at the trade deadline as the reason for their decline. Seeing how this was the team’s last chance to improve for the 2022 season, fans think they haven’t done enough.

@Yankees You can’t make it up how bad trading timeframe acquisitions have been. Brutal

If the New York Yankees fail to find playoff success in 2022, this season will be considered a failure.

@Yankees This team will beat the Astros in a series of 7 games?

If the Yankees hope to reach the playoffs with any kind of momentum, they need to turn things around quickly.

Are the New York Yankees the best team in the American League?

Although Aaron Judge had the best season of his career, the Yankees’ recent struggles put them second in the AL. Despite having the same record as the Houston Astros, the Astros have won the majority of their head-to-head encounters. That’s a steep drop from where the Yankees were expected to start the year.

There was a time when it was obvious the Yankees are the best team in the AL, with each team battling for second place. Their fight to regain the upper hand has now been hampered by three straight losses to the St. Louis Cardinals.
