Five Reasons the New York Yankees will Ride Their Recent Hot Streak to a 28th World Series Title

By Ryan Herbert

Throughout the 2018 season, the New York Yankees have had an up and down year.  Whether it was starting out 9-9, going on a 17-2 stretch, losing their best player in Aaron Judge, or hitting the most homeruns in MLB history it was a wild season of peaks and valleys.  However, since Judge has returned to the starting lineup the Yankees are 10-4 including two series wins over the Red Sox and an impressive AL Wild Card Game victory over the A’s.  Over the last few weeks, the Yankees have given me confidence that they have what it takes to win it all this year; and here are five reasons why they will.

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox have the offensive power to go the distance this year; no question about it.

While the Sox have over 100 wins on the season with 5 games to play, the only team this season to reach that mark thus far, the bullpen struggles have become even more severe in the 2nd half of the season. The Sox own an MLB worst 12 bullpen blown saves since the All Star break.
