The LCS round of the playoffs is almost set. Of course, the AL side of things is about as bad as it gets from a Yankees fan's perspective. The NLCS is still up in the air, as the Dodgers and Giants will bring their clash to a stirring conclusion with Game 5 tomorrow night.

There's no baseball today though, so we'll try to keep you occupied. On the site, Erin discusses the nightmare of an Astros-Red Sox ALCS, Jesse explains why it’d be a poor idea for the Yankees to solve their infield problems by shifting DJ LeMahieu to first base, Peter names the Yankees’ team MVP for the 2021 season, and Josh analyzes Gleyber Torres’ offensive turnaround after moving to second base.

Fun Questions:

1. How would you feel if the Yankees moved on from Aaron Boone by hiring former third base coach Joe Espada as manager?

2. Were you surprised by the extent the potent Houston lineup battered a White Sox pitching staff loaded with top-end talent?
