As it currently stands, the New York Yankees have one of the scariest batting orders in the sport right now. What are you even supposed if you’re an opposing pitcher stepping onto the mound and you have to face Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Greg Bird and Gary Sanchez back-to-back-to-back-to-back? Retire, I guess. See ya, Chris Sale.
I’m a perfectionist, for the sake of this article, and I think this roster can still improve if the Yankees make the correct moves to leapfrog Boston, Cleveland and to bury Houston alive in their tiny little Altuve jerseys.
Here are 5 roster moves the New York Yankees need to make in order to win the 2018 World Series:
1. Throw Jacoby Ellsbury Into The Hudson River
There is a law that allows homeless people to legally move into your home if you leave your front door open as it is technically an invitation. The New York Yankees left the front door open and Jacoby Ellsbury is squatting in the Bronx refusing to leave even though he can no longer play baseball and he makes Aaron Hicks look like Willie Mays.
I don’t think Jacoby Ellsbury is a bad person…I know he is

I clearly have ‘thoughts’ about Ellsbury. His refusal to waive his no-trade clause to go to another team where he where surely get playing time so that he can ride the Yankees bench where he definitely will not be playing in order to win a ring that he didn’t earn is a cute finesse. If this happened on any other time, I’d be congratulating him.
But BOOOOO Jacoby.
