A hump day open thread.

Well, a six-game winning streak was nice. Yesterday’s series opener with the Rays reminded the Yankees what it’s like to play an actual division rival, and Tampa Bay managed to snap New York’s streak with a 6-3 win.

We’ve got plenty of interesting stuff on the site today, as Andres will dive into whether the Blue Jays could offer anything interesting in trade, while Cooper digs into Clint Frazier’s new mechanics, and whether they’ve helped propel Frazier’s excellent start. Tom will also take a look at Aaron Hicks, whose low batting average belies what has been a strong season so far.

Fun Questions

  1. Whose turnaround has encouraged you more, that of Gleyber Torres or Gary Sanchez?
  2. Do you think the Yankees should trade actual prospects at the deadline, or is trading good prospects during a short season that could be ended early by a pandemic too risky?
