I am once again asking for the Yankees to bounce off of rock bottom. A few times this year they’ve seemed to brush the bottom only to keep sinking, so hopefully, last night’s win over the Twins saw them get things back on an upward trajectory. Today’s matchup represents about as big of a mismatch as can be found, with Gerrit Cole squaring off against Randy Dobnak. If the Yankees can’t pick this one up, well, it might be best to not finish off that thought.
On the site, Cooper reflects on the Wandy Peralta/Mike Tauchman trade now that we’ve had a month or two of hindsight, and reviews one of the finest, and most underrated, seasons ever by a Yankee. Plus, John checks in on how Yankee Stadium has been used as a vaccine site, and with Luis Severino on the comeback trail, Kevin looks back on the extension the right-hander signed a couple years ago.

1. Who will contribute more to the Yankees the rest of the way, Luis Severino, or Corey Kluber?
2. Do you think stars like Gerrit Cole are likely to face discipline as MLB cracks down on using substances to alter baseballs?
