Well, it’s the weekend, and the Yankees are in another holding pattern as MLB dances through it’s protocols with another potential outbreak in the Mets clubhouse. Hopefully, at most two members of the Mets have been infected, and both recover with all speed.

On the site, we have Tom analyzing Gerrit Cole’s early home run issues as Dan Kelly reviews the Yankees’ remaining infield options in their 60-man player pool. We’ll also see Cooper take a look at James Paxton’s changeup, while Peter tries to see if the Diamondbacks could offer anything via trade.

Fun Questions

  1. What Yankee hitter is most vital to the team with so many players out?
  2. Who is the favorite to win the AL East?
