The New York Yankees remain in a period of uncertainty where they don’t know what to do towards 2022 to avoid making the same mistakes that leave them a long way from potentially winning a World Series. Meanwhile, their biggest rivals and the team that eliminated them on the Wild Card, the Boston Red Sox, are due to contest their second Championship Series since 2018, and for the legendary ex Yankee Alex Rodriguez, the Bronx should learn something from their rivals.
A-Rod mentioned to Colin Cowherd on his Fox Sports radio show “The Herd” that the Yankees should stop looking for power at all costs and learn from the Red Sox method, where they have different players with various abilities that complement.
The Yankees have Stanton, Judge and Gallo. They are all types of almost or more than two meters in height, all very powerful, very similar. What they need is the Verdugos, the Kikes, the Vazquez, they need players with a diverse amount of skills and talents. Alex Cora has found a way to do it better than anyone.
The truth is that the New York Yankees have not determined the direction they want to go at this time, but they have already said goodbye to two very important members of their coaching staff, after firing hitting coach Marcus Thames, and coach third baseman Phil Nevin.
