Eyes on the prize, everyone. The last few games have been mostly frustrating, but meaningful games are just five days away. The Yankees no longer have a division to play for, and their hopes of securing homefield in the first round are fading. They just need to get through these last four games in one piece and get to the games that matter.

We’ve got plenty of interesting stuff today, as Dan Kelly talks to High-A Tampa hitting coach Joe Migliaccio. John digs into the history of personal catchers, Andrés analyzes the importance of an effective Adam Ottavino in the playoffs, and Dan Carty discusses what the Yankees’ underperforming bench means for October.

Fun Questions

  1. What reliever should Aaron Boone lean on most in the playoffs?
  2. How do you plan to manage the stress of a high-octane, three-game Wild Card series?
