Yankees: 3 moves that will make NYY a dynasty again
While the Yankees are playing well thus far in the 2020 season, the team still does not resemble their dynasty counterpart teams of the past yet. This situation can be rectified by making three savvy personnel moves.
Like many of you, when I sit down to watch the Yanks play another club these days, I generally feel like they have a good chance to win. However, I am never confident that they can demolish other teams every day (unless, of course, the opposing team is the Baltimore Orioles).
The Bombers are not consistently dominating other ball clubs. The recent series with the Tampa Bay Rays, which the Yanks lost 3-1, is a good example.
Right now, the Yanks have an excellent core group of players, but they still don’t look like the Yankee dynasty teams of the past. To become a dynasty team like their predecessors, they must make three strategic moves that will elevate them to a level of supremacy we all would like to see.

What is very exciting is that the Bombers have the resources, both in terms of players to barter and money for salaries, to make the necessary personnel moves now to become a true empire for many years to come. And their manager and executive officers are the best in MLB.
They already have made superb tactical moves by acquiring the likes of Gio Urshela, DJ LeMahieu, Aroldis Chapman, Gleyber Torres, Luke Voit, and Adam Ottavino for bupkis. Nabbing the expensive, but well worthwhile, future Hall of Fame pitcher Gerrit Cole was a terrific tactical move as well.
From my vantage point, if the Yanks make the following three personnel changes, the club will become a monster team and a dynasty starting in 2021.
