Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. The Yankees wrapped up their series with the Phillies yesterday and will return to a familiar foe in Tampa Bay. Peter has you covered with a series preview going up later, and we’ll have the usual game thread and recap to follow.

In the meantime, here’s a preview of our lineup for the day. I’ll be answering your questions in this week’s mailbag, and Dan Kelly shares the first half of an interview he got with rookie pitcher Nick Nelson. Finally, Tom looks into Giancarlo Stanton’s peripherals that indicate he’s in his best form since donning pinstripes.

Fun Questions:

1. What’s more concerning, the handful of struggling bats or starting pitchers?

2. Biggest surprise from the first two weeks of the season?
