Everything was amazing about the Yankees’ three-game swing in Houston ... until the ninth inning of the finale yesterday afternoon. The less said about that, the better, so let’s just say that it’s history now and we at least get some much-needed time away from Yankees baseball. The Home Run Derby is tonight, and Day 2 of the MLB Draft will begin at 1:00pm EST. (The Yankees made their first-round pick last night with Trey Sweeney.)

Today at Pinstripe Alley is all about that aforementioned Day 2. The Yankees will make nine picks today and we’ll have stories on all of them as the team makes its picks from rounds two through ten. Follow along with us to welcome the newest Baby Bombers into the fold, then keep hanging out tonight as we put up an open thread to watch the Home Run Derby!
