The poor start seems to be behind the Yankees, and they now are in a fairly good spot to make a big move.
The Yankees are only 5-5 in their last 10, but over the last 3 weeks or so they have made up a good amount of ground.
They sit 5.5 out of first in the east and 5 out of the wildcard.
They also have a big month of July to look forward to. In July they play 18 games at home and only 7 on the road.
They'll host both Boston and Tampa Bay who are currently both ahead of the Yankees in the east.
They'll also host both Oakland and Minnesota, who are ahead of them in the wild card.
They are in a position to make up a lot of ground in the next 30 days or so.
