New York Yankees
The Yankees feel like a team that’s about to lose a wild card game. There’s time for things to get better but you’ve got to have your shit together and play a really good game to beat the A’s.
For one, the starting pitching isn’t where it has to be. I wrote about this in Friday’s preview but I’ll say it again: things aren’t a mess but there is chaos at the top with Luis Severino vs. Tanaka, Happ and Sabathia.
Gary Sanchez has not caught well behind the plate since he’s returned and even before then. It just feels like he’s destined to be a DH, not for reasons simply out of his control. He doesn’t strike me as a guy who takes pride in his work behind the plate and nothing matters more for a big league catcher.
How Lance Lynn looks in September will determine his role in the postseason. He could probably be an awesome one-inning man out of the ‘pen, though the Yankees have enough of those.
Felix Hernandez is no longer dominant but he still pitches well. He won’t go seven against the Yankees but I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he held them at bay for five and even got through a sixth. It depends how aggressive Scott Servais wants to use his bullpen. If it were me, I’d use it aggressively.
The Mariners are going to win ninety games this year, which has to be considered a success, to some degree. But with the number of veterans on this team that expect to compete for the postseason, it won’t be good enough.
A fight broke out in the clubhouse earlier this week. Tensions are rising and when the dust settles this year and the Mariners again come up short, you have to think a tear-down could be imminent.

Free New York Yankees vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction: Seattle early.
I actually like Seattle to win, or at least tie, in a low-scoring first five. There may be an angle to play this one. If I can get an under 5.0 in the first five, I’m on it.
