New York Yankees Need to Find Consistency
There was an air of inconsistency about the New York Yankees in 2015 and this needs to be eradicated if they want to return to their glory days.
Let us not forget that the Yankees roster is full of exceptional talent, not least the gamne’s highest-paid star in Alex Rodriguez, a player who is closing in on the legendary’s Babe Ruth’s career home run record. Then there is the seemingly endless stream of young players being developed by the Yankees system.
Write off the Yankees at your peril.
