Things aren't looking great in the Bronx right about now. With a large chunk of the Yankees core on the mend, the team has struggled out the gate in 2019. At 5-7, and coming off being swept by the Houston Astros, the Yankees have not looked like the same formidable squad from last season.

Judge, ever a professional, maintained his composure while speaking to reporters, but it was clear how frustrated the 26-year-old is. It's always tough to get swept in a series, especially this early into the season, but Judge showed his leadership capabilities and is looking forward to turning things around.
"We're two weeks into the season. It's a young team," Judge said. "You know, we're battling, we're fighting."
He understands the desire to go out and win every single day, but the Yankees' failures at the plate and on the mound have prevented that from being a possibility. Rather, he vowed to improve and ensure that the team makes the most of key situations, not leaving runners stranded on base.
The star right fielder will try to lead his team to a series win of their own when they host the Chicago White Sox on Friday. The Yankees will also receive a boost when CC Sabathia returns to the hill on Saturday.
