Is The Bullpen Legit?

A few years ago, the New York Yankees decided to beef up their bullpen because that was one of their worst problems. In the 2017 postseason, the bullpen was one of the deadliest things about this team. Last season, that bullpen was exposed. Teams were not afraid of the big bad Yankee bullpen and it showed. Starters would leave the game in the 6th or 7th inning and end up getting the Jacob DeGrom treatment. Either a loss or a extra inning fiesta. This offseason, the Yankees said goodbye to David Robertson and said hello to Adam Ottavino. Ottavino was the biggest bullpen arm on the market and the Yankees went and got him.

What does this mean? This means that the Yankee bullpen is set up like this

The Yankees have an offense that needs no worry, a rotation that has improved and a bullpen that can secure a win. The only question is, can they all keep up? Last season, players like Chapman and Betances were not always up to snuff and other players were even to bad to watch. Channel changing worthy in fact. The Yankees need to hope their bullpen does exactly what they are stacked to do, or this will be another long season for the Bombers.
