Stop the presses, the Yankees won a game yesterday. Sure, it wasn’t particularly pretty, and it may in fact have been wrapped in a gift basket by the Atlanta bullpen, but they won nonetheless. The team will have a chance to win back-to-back games for just the third time this season tonight as they wrap up the homestand, and in the expert advice of this blogger, I suggest they do so.
While you wait for the game to start, feel free to peruse our articles for the day. Cooper starts us off by making the case for Giancarlo Stanton to get some reps in the outfield already, and Jake follows up with a preview of Matt Sauer’s season down in the minors. Andrés looks into the possibility of a meaningful Yankees-Red Sox rivalry this season after both teams have subverted expectations in the early going, while Jon digs into why Gary Sánchez’s decent opening month is a big deal for the catcher and the team. Finally, the latest SB Nation Reacts checks in with Yankees fans and their confidence in the pitching staff (spoiler: it’s not very high).
