One win away from sweeping the Royals, it’s safe to say the New York Yankees will confidently face the Seattle Mariners this Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. It’s no secret that the Yankees have been struggling as of late; however, do their recent wins from the Royals mean they’re stable and back on track? Or will the Mariners intervene for the Yankees to pick on someone their own size?  


The Seattle Mariners have won three of their last five games. The team stands with 55 wins and 47 losses, placing them second in the American League West and ninth in Major League Baseball. As of this writing, their most recent win was a narrow 5-4 against the Houston Astros. Somehow, this win might have done more damage to the team than good as that win earned five of Seattle’s players a doctor’s appointment; Mitch Haniger under 60-Day indefinite leave, Tommy Milone under 15-Day IL, Dylan Moore, Julio Rodriguez, and Sam Haggerty under day-to-day. Now, they’re in quite the bind as they visit New York in these conditions. 


Throughout the second part of the season, the Yankees have looked to improve their rotation. Jordan Montgomery's ERA is close to 5.00 while Jameson Taillon's is over 5.00. Nestor Cortes has delivered excellent performances with the Yankees and was an All-Star in 2022, but he can't carry the rotation by himself. Having just reclaimed the majors’ number one though, we believe there’s fire to be expected from the home team. Even more so that they’ve got the momentum going with the Royals.  


The odds of this matchup have come along in favor of one team more than the other, and that team is New York. It’s arguable that their wins against the Royals are well outside their level, but that does not erase the fact that the Mariners are also in a terrible position. In contrast, the Yankees ultimately are the logical choice to side with, and they’re on top of the league for a reason. It’s the Yankees this Tuesday at the Yankee Stadium. 


7:05 AM (PST), Tuesday, 2 August 2022. Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY.
