How do we feel about the Yankees’ offseason acquisitions now?

Back in January, I wrote about how the Yankees had prioritized upside in their offseason moves, trading for Jameson Taillon and signing Corey Kluber. Both were high-risk moves with the potential for big upside, but as I wrote, the Yankees were gambling on both health and effectiveness. In the comments of that article — and broader Yankee discourse — there were a lot of fans that were okay with that gamble, and the Yankees came into the season projected to have a top three pitching staff in baseball.

Ten weeks into the season, we can start to parse the decisions made to raise the ceiling of the pitching staff, without as solid a floor.
