While the Yankees have been good this season, they’re not without their faults. Here’s a look at some of the areas where they need to improve.

The Yankees have the worst record in baseball
The New York Yankees have the worst record in baseball. They are 14 games out of first place and 10 games below .500. They have lost nine of their last 12 games. Their offense has been atrocious, scoring two or fewer runs in eight of their last 12 games. Their pitching has been even worse, giving up five or more runs in seven of those 12 games.
The Yankees are a mess. But it’s not all doom and gloom. There are still reasons to be optimistic about this team.
One reason is that the Yankees have a lot of young talent. Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge, and Luis Severino are all 25 or younger and they are all great players. Sanchez is one of the best hitting catchers in baseball, Judge is one of the best power hitters in baseball, and Severino is one of the best pitchers in baseball. The Yankees also have a lot of other young talented players like Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar, and Justus Sheffield who could be great players in the future.
Another reason to be optimistic about the Yankees is that they have a lot of money. They are worth $4 billion dollars and they have the highest payroll in baseball at $226 million dollars. This means that they can afford to make big trades or sign big free agents to try to improve their team.
The Yankees also have a history of being a winning franchise. They have won 27 World Series titles which is more than any other team in baseball. They also have won 40 American League pennants which is also more than any other team in baseball. Even though they are having a down year this year, they are still one of the most successful teams in baseball history.
So even though the Yankees are having a bad year, there are still reasons to be optimistic about them. They have a lot of young talent, they have a lot of money, and they have a winning history.
They have the worst pitching staff in baseball
The Yankees have the worst pitching staff in baseball. They have the highest ERA of any team in baseball, and they have given up the most home runs of any team in baseball. They also have the worst record in baseball.
They have the worst offense in baseball
If you’re looking for a team to pick apart, the Yankees are a good place to start. They have the worst offense in baseball and are currently on pace to score just 693 runs, which would be the fewest they’ve scored in a season since 1990. As bad as their offense has been, their pitching has been even worse. Their starting pitchers have a league-worst ERA of 5.61, and their relievers have been nearly as bad, with a 4.82 ERA that is also last in the majors.
They have the worst defense in baseball
The New York Yankees have the worst defense in baseball. They have given up the most runs of any team in baseball, and their outfielders have combined for -20 defensive runs saved. Their infield defense has been subpar, and their pitching staff has been plagued by injuries. As a result, the team has lost eight games in a row and is fighting for its playoff life.
They have the worst farm system in baseball
The Yankees have the worst farm system in baseball.
They have the oldest roster in baseball, with an average age of over 28.
They have very little financial flexibility, as they are committed to paying over $200 million in payroll next season.
Their best young player, Gary Sanchez, is currently injured and may not be ready for the start of the season.
So, yes, the Yankees are bad. But they are not irreparably bad. They should be able to improve their farm system quickly and they have some young players who could develop into stars. The Yankees will also continue to spend a lot of money on free agents, so they should be competitive in the short-term.
