The Yankees, having had their most recent game suspended in the fifth inning, have played 40 and one-half games so far. If my math is correct, that means they have played exactly a quarter of their games. 40 and a half times four equals 162, according to the calculator. Perfect timing for a quarterly review, right?

The good

MVP- Early on it was easily Didi Gregorious. Didi was batting over .330 and led the league in homers and RBIs. Since then he's gone 1-42 and struggling mightily. This award goes to Aaron Judge. The California native is batting .307 with 11 home runs and 35 RBIs.

He has had an RBI in seven consecutive games.

He had the go-ahead RBI in a 6-5 comeback win against the Astros. He had a two-run dagger home run against the Red Sox. He had the go-ahead RBI single in another game against the Sox. He had a late two-run double that cut the 8th inning deficit to one against Cleveland. He had another go-ahead RBI as a result of a bases-loaded walk in the eighth inning of another game against the Indians. Safe to say Judge has been stellar and clutch, one of the things he lacked last season.

Rookie of the Year - Miguel Andújar or Gleyber Torres? Andújar came up from the minors and had a torrid start. He had a seven-game extra-base hit streak, one of three Yankees ever to do that before their 24th birthday.

Since then, he's cooled off a bit but is still batting .284 with three home runs. He also had a walk-off single against Cleveland.

Torres, who debuted later than Andújar, is batting .324 and also has three home runs, including the walk-off three-run shot against the Indians, the youngest Yankee to have a walk-off home ever.

The nod goes to Torres here, although both have been good.

Cy Young- This one is easy. Luis Severino is an ace. He has a 2.14 ERA and 70 strikeouts, good for eighth and seventh in the league, respectively. He also has a sub one WHIP and a 1.98 Fielder Independent Pitching which is good for third in the league. The stats don't lie, Severino is one of the elite pitchers in baseball, and far and away the Yankees best.

Biggest Surprise - CC Sabathia has been lights out, posting an ERA below 3.00. However, given his late season and playoff performance last year, that's not a huge surprise. Since he didn't win Rookie of the Year, I'll go with Andújar. In the offseason, the Yankees traded for Brandon Drury to take over the third base job. Until he got hurt, it was his spot. Then he went to the DL and the Yankees called up Andújar. Now that Drury is healthy again, they optioned him to Triple-A Scranton, so the job is Andújar's now.

The bad

LVP- The Least Valuable Player. Last season the Yankees traded three prospects for Sonny Gray, and he was solid last year. That has, unfortunately, not been the case this year.

Sonny has been downright bad. He's tied for the team lead in Earned Runs. Masahiro Tanaka and Gray each have 27, but Tanaka has 13 more innings than Gray. He leads the team in walks. He has the highest ERA of any pitcher on the team.

Gray simply hasn't looked anything like the ace he was in Oakland. He's had two good starts, going six innings and only giving up two runs against the Astros and Indians, but the majority of his starts are rough.

Biggest Disappointment- As of right this second, it would be Didi, but he had such a blazing start that it isn't him. For a while, it was Neil Walker, but he has come up huge in several of the last games and has started to heat up. Giancarlo Stanton was striking out four times a game and was a big disappointment, but he is also heating up and is mirroring his 2017 pace in which he hit 59 home runs.

I'll have to go with Gary Sanchez.

Despite being tied for second on the team with 10 home runs, his batting average has hovered around .200 and currently sits at .211. His fielding, albeit somewhat underrated, leaves some to be desired. He has thrown out all of the attempted base stealers but has seven passed balls, not including some iffy wild pitches.

I suppose it's a really good thing when your biggest disappointment has double-digit home runs and is one of the best offensive catchers in history.

The verdict

The Yankees are the best team in baseball. They just went 15-2 in a 17-game stretch against the American League's best including the defending champion Astros, the Red Sox, Indians, Twins, and Angels.

This is a legitimate World Series contender.

The only holes they really have anymore are at first base and the back end of the rotation. Greg Bird is coming back soon and when Jordan Montgomery gets healthy and Sonny Gray rights himself, look out, baseball.

Two of their bullpen aces, Adam Warren and Tommy Kahnle have been on the DL. Clint Frazier, a highly touted outfield prospect is back and healthy. Jacoby Ellsbury will be back soon and will probably be better than last season. Point being, the Yankees are great, but are they even at full power? Scary.
