Yesterday was not a good day at all, for far more reasons than the Yankees losing the game and the series to the Astros. As this is a baseball blog, we will not go into the awful details of the tragedy that occurred. However, we here at Pinstripe Alley just wish to offer our thoughts and best wishes to the loved ones of those affected. On a personal note from the PSA staff, due to their shameful, disheartening, and downright sickening front page cover decision, we are officially no longer linking to any New York Daily News story for the foreseeable future.As for yesterday's game, it was more of the same in the month of August. The Yankees could not score. Michael Pineda's return from rehab was not as substantial as we would have liked. That long homestand is now over and the Yankees head to Atlanta to face the Braves on Friday. The Braves are not very good, so it would be an ideal time to get back to their winning ways again. After this much needed day off, I mean.
Comments of the Day
Sometimes I feel as if LTL is mocking me.
What Jason said.
I just find it stunning that people want to go back to the 2014 offense.
I'd make a great GM cause I would have traded Chris Capuano for Mike Trout!

Honorable Mod Mention
Not much honor yesterday, I'm afraid.
- Muffins or Cupcakes?
- What type of jewelry are you just not a fan of at all?
Song of the Day
Muffin Man by Frank Zappa
It's 70's Rock Week on Pinstripe Alley. Frank Zappa makes me laugh and is a classic and awesome rock star. I felt this would be nice today. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. There is no Yankee baseball, so there will probably be a lot of scoreboard watching instead.
he hung around till you found that he didn't know nuthin'
