New York Yankees fans are known for their passion and the intensity with which they follow the team.
This often leads them to become somewhat anxious while waiting for development in certain situations.
The team with the best record in the MLB is 28-9, yet some fans are already calling for a new close or a new outfielder in the struggle of Aroldis Chapman, as Joey Gallo and Aaron Hicks are performing less than expected.
In many cases, you need to give the player some time to work through his struggles: pitchers need innings, and hitters need at-bat.
But above all, they need confidence, and the stand and especially, social media usually does not help.
Fans should enjoy the team and let things play out
WFAN Yankees reporter Sweeney Murthy addressed the situation in a generic tweet.
“There’s plenty of time in October to think about the issues that could hurt the Yankees. The team has time to deal with them. For now, I hope you enjoy 28-9. Not all the time. Don’t try to rush into October, just let it happen, “he said, and he was right.
Lots of time to think about the problem areas that could hurt the Yankees in October. The team has time to deal with them. For now, I hope you enjoy 28-9. Not all the time. Don’t try to move fast in October, just let it happen.

With enough time left for any of the struggling stars to work, it’s too early for the Yankees to mortgage the farm for a star reliever or outfielder (or shortstop, or whatever position may be needed).
Players who are considered to be detrimental to the team’s success on the field will eventually be replaced, or watch some competition, but now is probably not the time.
After all, it’s not that the team is doing poorly in the standings: they have the best record in the majors.
