It’s been an intense begin to the season for the New York Yankees. In the range of half a month, the group lost in excess of twelve players—worth some $82 million in finance—to wounds. That hasn’t made a difference much at the door, however; even with the greater part of their headliners missing, the Yankees rank third in normal home diversion participation.
