The New York Yankees have reached the halfway point of the season at 48-33, four games better than last season at this time (44-37), and have won 10 of their last 11 games entering their Monday afternoon tilt against the Toronto Blue Jays.
With the team at the exact midpoint of the season, now is a great time to assess how the players are performing this year. As a teacher, it is my sworn duty to hand out grades where I see fit, so players will receive letter grades on this “Yankees Mid-Season Report Card.”
This column will focus on the lineup, defined as the top nine Yankees in at-bats, since a few players have split time at their respective positions. For a team with the most runs scored in baseball, expect a few high grades.
