Yankees unable to overcome the Houston Astros

The New York Yankees have been a dominant force in baseball for the last half-decade, but their success has been overshadowed by their inability to overcome the Houston Astros. Despite the Yankees’ confidence in winning 100 games, they recognize that beating the Astros is their biggest challenge. On the other hand, Houston manager Dusty Baker does not view the Yankees as his team’s biggest threat to the American League pennant.

Baker believes his focus should be on the AL West, as the Astros must overcome several teams, including the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, and Los Angeles Angels, before worrying about the Yankees. He acknowledges that some of his players may be concerned about facing the Yankees, but he is not. Baker’s priority is concentrating on immediate concerns before considering the Yankees a significant threat.

The Astros, who have won the AL West five times in the last six seasons, are trying to repeat as World Series champions despite the departure of Justin Verlander. They added Jose Abreu to play first base, replacing Yuli Gurriel, and are one of the favourites, along with the Yankees, for the AL pennant. Despite their success, Baker is focused on winning games in the AL West and not worried about facing the Yankees until the time comes.
