MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees and Rays managed to play a clean game yesterday, against all odds, but the Yankees fell, and their hopes of winning consecutive AL East titles are fading. They’ll have to get right back to it, as they shift from the three-game series with Tampa to a lone game with the Mets.

We have a torrent of Gerrit Cole content on the site today, as John and Peter take different looks at the Yankees’ ace’s mild struggles. Peter argues that Cole’s fastball is cause for concern, while John digs into Cole’s comments that he may have tipped his pitches during his latest uneven start. Cooper will also preview tonight’s game against the Mets, and Matt brings his epic alternative history series to the 2010s.

Fun Questions

  1. Will Gerrit Cole finish the year with an ERA under 3.50?
  2. Do you want the Yankees to push hard for the AL East title until the season’s end, or would you rather see them rest guys up ahead of the playoffs?
