In the past week, the Yankees have done well against some decent teams! The beat both the Astros and Nationals two games out of three at home, and the two losses just so happened to be the bullpen’s first two meltdowns of the season. They weren’t going to be perfect all year long, so as annoying as the L’s were, they weren’t too hard to shake off.

We discussed the mostly-successful past week, offense being down both in New York and around the rest of the league (hello, inexplicable Wade Miley no-hitter), and salivate about 2020 home run king Luke Voit’s expected 2021 debut today. The team has missed having him — and recently, Gio Urshela — in the heart of its batting order.

The “Meet a Baby Bomber” segment this week spotlights Tampa Tarpons slugging sensation Trevor Hauver (who has a good dog) and Hudson Valley Renegades reliever Nick Ernst. Then, it’s time for “Yankee and Mitre of the Week,” which had some fairly easy choices this time around. May the winning continue.
