2018 Yankees a sinking ship?

Yanks Tanking, Drop Opener to Royals 10-5; No DK Nightcap

A soul-crushing loss to a terrible Royals team. Aside from another shaky start by Luis Severino, screw ups on the base paths and from the bullpen, and the Yankees are cementing their value as a .500 team. And one that will play itself out of postseason contention soon at this rate. No Draft Kings cheatsheet as game two of tonight’s double-header will not be included in any contests.

A rainy night in New York City.

Yanks vs deGrom for Subway Series Clincher Before Nor'Easter

You’d like to think it was business as usual — Jacob deGrom starts for the Mets, gives up 1 or 2 runs and takes a non-decision or a loss. The only wrench tossed into that equation is the fact the Queens hitters have been slapping around pinstripe pitching, so deGrom (5-4, 1.68 ERA) just may get some run support tonight. Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.54 ERA) will have something to say about that, but your fantasy lineup will need to adjust accordingly. Check our Draft Kings lowdown for tonight’s ‘Showdown’ mode contest.

Mets Shoot For '18 Subway Series Lead in Game 5

With the 2018 Subway Series into it’s 5th game, the Yankees look like they are about to slip into an extended funk at the plate, and this time they won’t have the pitching to claw out improbable wins. In no time, they will be closer to 10 games behind the Boston Red Sox than 1 game behind. Check out our Draft Kings picks for this afternoon’s contest.

Clevinger Needs CG, Yanks Need Him Gone Early

With CC Sabathia (6-4, 3.34 ERA) and Mike Clevinger (7-4, 3.34 ERA) facing off, the pivotal game three of the 4-game set between the Indians and Yankees begins at 7:15 EST / 4:15 PT today, and the plot line is simple. New York needs to get into the anemic Cleveland bullpen as early as possible, while Clevinger has to keep Yankee hitters off balance all night long, and hope his powerful offense can build up a bullpen-proof lead. Check out our Draft Kings cheatsheet for this contest.

Masahiro Tanaka New York Yankees

Hurdle The Mediocre, Trample The Terrible. Or Else.

Masahiro Tanaka is fresh off the DL and ready to take on the Baltimore Orioles. With Boston on the march, the Yankees can little afford another loss. The Bombers are also looking over their shoulder at the Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners for possible post-season home field advantage positioning. The operative word is possible, and we touch on that, as well as our fantasy baseball skinny on tonight’s game.

Double-Trouble In Charm City

Thanks to a rainout in Baltimore on May 31st, the Yankees and Orioles will play two today. CC Sabathia will take his regularly scheduled start in game one, while Luis Cessa was called up and will get another shot to impress in the nightcap. With the Red Sox surging, the Yankees can’t afford a letdown against a team that is 40 games under .500 — they need a sweep, no two ways about it. In on Draft Kings? Get a tip or two for your lineup.
