Good morning folks, the regular season hype train keeps rolling along. Counting today’s action, we’ve got just five exhibition matches left to get through before everything resets and the scores start mattering. That comes along in exactly one week, so if you haven’t already, mark your calendars.
Today on the site we’re going to be looking outward on several topics. To begin, John takes us away from baseball itself by pondering how the vaccination site in Yankee Stadium will fare with the start of the season approaching. Cooper brings in a historical viewpoint by analyzing the current title drought in comparison to the other longest runs in the franchise’s history, and Peter breaks down how Jordan Montgomery has a wealth of information at his disposal for developing his cutter. On top of this, Jake brings the latest season preview — this time on Gleyber Torres — and I’ll be recapping the ballgame tonight.

Time: 6:05 p.m. EST
