I believe we’ve reached the dog days of the season. Series have started blending into each other and there are weeks to go before postseason discussions get serious. That said, the Yankees find themselves in a good spot. The Bombers have a 9.5-game lead on the AL East, and they expect several key contributors to come off the injured list soon.
With all that in mind, let’s pass the time with some questions and answers. You may want to talk about the injured players nearing a return, such as Luis Severino and Dellin Betances. You could ask about Gio Urshela’s breakout season or DJ LeMahieu’s sustained excellence. Any and all Yankees questions are welcome, from the general to the highly specific.
Mailbag answers run on Friday morning. All submissions received by the night of Thursday, August 22 are eligible. You can leave questions in the comment section below or e-mail them to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com. Thanks all!
