Kenny Ekert says the New York Yankees can win the World Series ‘easily’ in 2020.
The Major League Baseball season is in full effect once again, however it is a little different than what fans were expecting. A season that has been reduced from 162 games to 60 games, the World Series favorite New York Yankees have been on a great run to start the season. With a record of 12-6 to start the season, the Yankees are currently second best in the American League and third best in Major League Baseball. However, the talent on the team is far better than the record they have so far. With talented hitters and pitchers, this team has playoff experienced, depth and a great coaching staff that can lead this team to their 28th World Series, still the best in Major League Baseball.
With the acquisition of the best pitcher in the Major League, Gerrit Cole, signed a long-term deal with the Yankees, this jumped the boys in Pinstripes to be the favorite to win the World Series in the 2020 season. This team is stacked this year with many All-Star caliber players that can lead this team towards a World Series Championship. The whole roster is filled with players able to get their roles accomplished in each game. All position players have the power to drive the ball out of the park or get a much needed hit to drive in runs. All pitchers can start and relieve to win games for this ball club. With big names like Cole, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and many more that are so crucial to this organization. However, the coaching staff with manager, Aaron Boone, have made this team exceptional. Through the season right now, the Yankees have only played teams on the East Coast, being in their own “bubble”. However, if the team has to travel to a different time zone during the playoffs, it is going to be difficult for the Yankees but they will get the job done. The New York Yankees are a championship caliber team, ready to take on any other team and make it to the American League Championship Series as well as the World Series.
The only problem for the Yankees, which has been a big problem in recent history, is their pitching. But, with Cole signing a nine year and $324 million contract, this staff just became top notch. The New York Yankees can win the World Series; they have to keep playing the way they have been at the start of this season. Every game matters in this season and the New York Yankees have taken that into account. The offense must continue to keep dominating and get even better. Right now, the Yankees are 6th in batting average, 5th in home runs, and 10th in runs batted in. However, these numbers will get up and with the way the Yankees have been playing, will make the playoffs if something does happen. As of right now, they are second in the American League and can have home field advantage throughout the whole playoffs if they can jump past the Athletics for the top spot.
The New York Yankees, with the talent they have on their team, can win a World Series and should win it easily
