Washington Post | David Ginsburg: There came the rain again, falling on the Yankees’ head like a memory. It was the fifth postponement of the season for the team. Though the Yankees are scheduled to play three more games against the Orioles this weekend, the postponed game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on July 9. Additionally, Adam Warren has joined the Yankees and will likely be activated for Monday’s doubleheader against the Tigers. | Bryan Hoch: When the Yankees moved on from Joe Girardi and brought in Aaron Boone, one of the biggest reasons was because they felt Boone would be able to connect better with the younger Yankees. Well luckily, Boone knows rule #1 about millennials: they love bumper stickers...apparently. The Yankees have a hitting mantra that they’ve embraced which is to be “obsessed with controlling the strike zone,” which Boone apparently refers to as a bumper sticker. I don’t know why. Also this would be a terrible bumper sticker.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: It’s amusing that people aren’t talking about Aaron Judge as much this season because he’s not ripping monster dongs every four seconds. Though he’s not hitting them every second, he’s still hitting as well as he did last year. For some reason, though, it’s just gone under the radar a bit. Anyway, Judge has been as great as he was last year and the consistency in his approach can’t be overstated.
