Caitlin's last "Ask Pinstripe Alley" request generated two full posts of answers! There were some good questions asked about the team's future, both immediate and a little ways down the road. Now though, it's time for a fresh one with the Yankees faring a little bit better than they were a couple weeks ago.

So what's on your mind? What Yankees questions do you have? Any and all inquiries are welcome. You can ask your question in the comment section below, or you can shoot us an email at pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail dot com.
This mailbag is going to have a quick turnaround since the Monday off-day offers a great opportunity to pause for reflection on this team. As always, we'll try to get to as many questions as we can, but no promises. My answers will run on Monday afternoon, so you have until tomorrow around 1:00 to submit your questions.
Feel free to keep asking them past the deadline though, as other editors can certainly jump in to answer extras at a later time. Fire away! We'll consume them like Mark Teixeira consumes his kale.
