The New York Yankees are having a dream season.
They have earned an impressive 39-15 record so far, and have won their last six games.
They have suffered key injuries in recent weeks, especially in the bullpen (Aroldis Chapman, Jonathan Loaisiga, and Chad Green, just to name a few), yet they have managed to move forward while relying on one of the best rotations in the game.
The most impressive part is that the Yankees haven’t really had any bad stretches of play, where losses pile up.
In fact, their level of play since April 22 has been outstanding.
“Since April 22, the New York Yankees are 32-9,” Codify Baseball tweeted on Tuesday.

The Yankees Are Head And Shoulders Above The Competition
The next-best team in baseball, the New York Mets, are 38-19, or 2.5 games behind the Bombers.
And they have done it with several members of their everyday lineup struggling to get much going offensively.
Yet, the rest of the lineup, the rotation (which has an incredible 2.55 ERA, the best in the majors), and a strong bullpen have picked them up.
As the Yankees get healthier and look for alternatives near the trade deadline, they will get stronger and more dangerous.
Behind their incredible play on the field, there are coaches helping a lot off the field: pitching coach Matt Blake and hitting coach Dillon Lawson have both been major drivers behind the Yanks’ success.
Overall, the team is looking like the best in the majors.
