Bombs, Controversy, and Another Man Down: The Yanks Reach .500

The Yankees came into Saturday’s game looking to win their second series in a row, and gain some semblance of momentum despite the vast number of injuries the team has experienced this year. Saturday’s rubber match had a little bit of everything: controversy, home runs, strong pitching, and yet another significant injury.

I was a HUGE proponent of the Yankees signing Bryce Harper (because he’s great).

The Yankees didn’t sign Harper (of course) which opened the door for Clint Frazier to play regularly once Giancarlo Stanton was injured. Since that time, Clint Frazier has hit the cover off the ball.
