Week 19 Yankees Players of the Week
The Yankees suffered yet another bad going 3-4 against Cleveland, Toronto, and Baltimore. They had an inexplicable series loss to Toronto after Rafael Soriano blew a save in the 1st game and a combination of bad defense, bad pitching by CC Sabathia and going 3-17 with RISP lost them the 3rd game. They could have made up for it against Baltimore but lost two out of three to them as well, which could very easily have been a sweep if not for an error by J.J. Hardy. This is the 2nd time I can remember this season where nobody is really worthy of player of the week. The Yankee with the highest average this week was Robinson Cano at .250 and there were not really any spectacular pitching performances. The only Yankee who shined this week was David Robertson. He pitched 4.1 innings of scoreless baseball and had holds in all 3 of the Yankees wins. He is your Week 19 Player of the Week. Hopefully next week we can actually have four legitimate candidates again. They play huge games against Tampa Bay and Baltimore again so a lot of people need to step up more.
