Thing is, in the 90s they weren't really like that.  it was a balanced team, they didn't strike out a ton, and did steal bases. 

96 they were actually 12th in the AL in home runs, but 2nd in batting, and 3rd in OBP, and 2nd in strikeouts as hitters (2nd being good, not 2nd most).

98 they were 4th in HR, but 2nd in stolen bases, 2nd in batting, and 1st in OBP.

99, they were 8th in HR, 3rd in batting, 2nd in OBP.  Only 10th in steals and still 6th best in strikeouts.

2000, 6th in HR, 6th in steals, 6th in batting, 5th in OBP, 6th in strikeouts.

 

It’s incredible how Jets fans like to act like Rex did everything with “Mangini’s teams” — Cashman all of his success in the late 90’s early 2000’s was with rosters pretty much built from scratch by Gene Michael and the previous GM Bob Watson

 

The guy just is not that good. Even the success in recent years was mostly due to Gene Michael nailing draft pick after draft pick and now he’s dead.  Cashman has a license to do whatever he wants and he’s not a great talent evaluator so get ready the 80’s are back

There are 3 Yankees who can actually hit good pitching and that's, DJ, Urshela, and Hicks no way this team wins a WS because they just can't manufacture runs to save their lives and they strike out at

This team never gets a clutch hit either. Lates 90s/early 2000s teams always seemed to get a big hit when they needed it. These guys absolutely collapse in big spots except maybe DJ and Gio. 

Bye bye Jay. Your Yankees career was fun while it lasted.

Bench Hicks for good. The guy effing sucks. He's been a .220 hitter for 3 years now.

Now Clint Frazier........the Yankees just dont know how to let guys get out of a slump do they? He's been a good hitter every year the last few seasons, they annoint him the starting LFer before the season and now bench him for Gardner after he has 5 poor games. You cant make this stuff up. BTW, Gardy sucks.

Cashman is the main reason Yankees haven’t won a Championship forever.

For a long time he passed on top starting pitching, finally signing Cole for huge bucks  when he was desperate.  He Doesn’t really understand player development and proper roster use and overall has engineered many badly designed teams even though he’s always been on top or near the top in overall salary.

I mean you have Gardner, why did you need Ellsbury, a clone? you had Judge why did you need Stanton, another clone .

This season’s moves were typical.

He needed a First baseman due to injury so he decides to go with a 36 year old, bad fielding , HR / KO guy who bats under the Mendoza line with a terrible onbase percentage and then trades a solid contact hitting 2nd baseman for Odor, another .200 hitter and Occasional HR/KO guy when he needed onbase type guys in this batting order.

the development of Gary Sanchez as a hitter has been terrible, he was a huge talent coming in, until Judge and Stanton starting hitting STATCAST HRs and Gary started swinging twice as hard to show he could keep up, where was the mentoring? 
Guy is the most overrated GM in all of sports, Teflon, press likes him so, he hangs around.

All that being said, this Yankees team has too many players and too much pitching not to start winning.Nobody ever won or lost the WS in April, I expect a run soon, in spite of Yankee managment.

Not only does Hicks not hit or steal bases for a young CF with speed the arm strength on his throws has been lacking this season.  That was supposedly his specialty

This team is effing awful.

Only bold moves will right the ship. Enough of the treading water.

Hicks and Sanchez need to hit the bench - permanently. Guys need to be traded etc.

Judge out at 3rd base to end the 8th inning. Yet another base running mistake by this team. It's like every game.

Where is the coaching? This team is so bad and here's why - they should be good. A few key moves/trades and better coaching and this team would take off.

Lets not forget the Yankees were 33-27 last year. So pretty much a .500 team. They are blowing this window to win.

Aaron Boone was a highly talent athlete, from a three generation baseball family and pretty much, his baseball career never really amounted to much, sans the one big HR.

He was NOT a smart player , not a guy who maxed out his ability , yet, somewhere along the line somebody decided he would be a great manager.

Like-able  guy who has shown nothing to suggest that he is anything but a typical old boy network hack, who is being told by the computer guys who to play .

As far as I'm concerned this teams window has already closed. We're going to have to look a lot different and soon if we want a chance to win anything.

A little early in the season to be giving up.

Fat Gary takes his rightful seat on the bench tonight. Hitting under .200 again, so much for his decent start.

Again, here’s a guy who started out like a great hitter and then with the STATCAST stuff and Judge & Stanton getting made a big deal of, started swinging harder and harder and ruined his career.

Where were Yankees Manager, GM and a top batting instructor.Their current hitting instructor couldn’t hit righties his entire career and was a poor fielder, this is their guru ?

who made that decision?

Tauchman, who can play all 3 OF positions well and one of the few base stealers on the team, making like league minimum and has been starting to heat up at the plate lately - has been traded. For a bag of doughnuts. Horrible move by Cashman. Seriously, wtf? He's a better player than Hicks.

Baserunning?  During the Cashman era?  The only base running he cares about is the jogging around the bases after one of his free agents hits a meaningless hr in garbage innings

Traded Tauchman for a middle reliever with a 5.40 ERA

German seems to be fixed.  That changed the outlook

It’s still the Orioles though, but it was nice to see. He hasn’t pitched in a year so him along with Taillon and Kluber may get progressively better (I hope)

It looks like German’s first start was just him being nervous.  Yankees really need him to be a solid #2 starter

 

My hopes for Taillon aren’t other than him being a decent back of the rotation guy

German is coming back from over a year off, it can take a few starts.

Taillon and Monty are coming back from a lot of injuries.  It'll take a bit to see what they have.

The bats suck, and Judge is hurt again.

Adding Severino in July is a huge addition, Yankees need to hang in there and start getting some clutch hitting.

Can win the games with 7-8 runs and then come the next day and score 1.

Timely hitting, building runs with good outs, good base running, it’s all 0art of it and then the HRs.

Plus Britton will be back by then too

The lack of fundamentals and bad decisions keep showing up everyday.  Boone only decides to bunt Wade (Wade should have been bunting from the start of the at bat) after he’s down 2 strikes.  Wade sucks at bunting so he bunts foul which is a strikeout

 

Last nights game they absolutely should have won

Got back to .500.  Granted it was while eating cupcakes but ok

Yeah Detroit is a triple A team.... they got shut down by a Marlins reject too. A win is a win though. Houston will play is pretty tough. I think this may show us if they turned the corner.

Big difference since they benched Gary Sanchez, Higgy frames and calls pitches better and is a clutch hitter.

Sanchez may be the biggest waste of talent I have ever seen.

So much promise, such a horrible player.

I still cant understand the Tauchman trade.

Hicks is hitting .150 right now and Garnder sucks too. Hicks has been bad since 2018.

Man, the pitching has improved.

That's the thing, a lot of guys are coming back from injuries, so it'll take some time for them to round into form.   That being said, I don't know how many innings these guys can go this year.
