Yanks finish up this road trip in Minnesota, where the Twins are 41-30 in home games this season. They sit in second place in the AL Central. Their best pitcher, Kyle Gibson, will be on the mound tonight. New York will send J.A. Happ to the mound. Where would the Yanks be without Happ? The homer happy Bombers are 41-30 in road games this season. Aaron Boone's struggling club is just three games up on Oakland for home field in the WC. The A's have won four in a row. Of the five playoff teams in the AL, Yanks seem the least worthy. Their ace has gone missing. Their young stud catcher, Gary Sanchez, is hitting .181. That's not a slump. That's a bad season of historical proportions. We can safely say Sanchez is the biggest disappointment for a Yankee team that looked great until late June. But it's never over until Yogi says so. Yanks need to get Judge back on the field and then try to make a run in the playoffs, just like last year. There is no pressure on this team anymore. Nobody expects them to go all the way. They have been reduced to spoilers by injuries and poor performance from two or three key players. The 162-game grind chewed them up this season.
