The West Coast trip has finally come to a close, and all things considered, it has to be seen has a success, even in spite of the two-game sweep in Arizona. Personally, I mostly associate these trips out west with late nights and frustrating losses, so this brief stretch of winning has felt like a nice change of pace.

The Yankees have another off-day today at the conclusion of their road trip. They’ll return to the friendly confines of Yankee Stadium tomorrow night as they kick off a three-game set with the Twins.

Fun Questions

  1. The Red Sox are currently in fourth place and 5.5 games back of first in the AL East. At what point would you count out the Yankees’ nemesis?
  2. The NBA and NHL playoffs have rolled along into their respective second rounds. Have you followed at all, and if so, what’s surprised you the most?
