The last off-day before the end of spring training.

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees
Some say Jacoby Ellsbury still haunts the Yankees’ complex.

My condolences go out to all of the Grapefruit League fanatics out there today (they surely exist, right?), as the Yankees are off. The good news is that they’ll be back in action against the Phillies on Friday night, and that there will not be another off-day until the regular season is about to begin. Huzzah? Huzzah.

It’s also not an off-day on Pinstripe Alley, and we have plenty of new material ready for you. Kunj and I will begin the proceedings with the newest episode of our podcast, checking up on the Yankees in the middle of spring training. Dan will preview the 2021 season of top prospect Oswald Peraza, Andrés will delve into Nick Nelson’s Opening Day roster case, Tom will give a Yankees fantasy baseball preview, and Jake will ponder if the Yankees have any true American League rivals at the moment.

Today’s Matchup

N/A (off-day)

Fun Questions:

1. At this point, which American League team do you think is the Yankees’ biggest threat to the pennant? The Astros? Rays? White Sox?

2. How many National League teams do you think are better than the Yankees?
