An off-day before the second half begins.

The off-day after the All-Star Game always feels quiet, and this year, it seems even more eerily calm than others. That’s because both the All-Star festivities and the 2021 MLB Draft came to a close on the same day. We went from tons of news to almost nothing at all, especially since it’s not like there’s a Manny Machado trade in the works à la 2018 to spice up the news cycle on an otherwise-sleepy Wednesday. Enjoy the calm while you can. Beginning tomorrow night, the Yankees have serious work to do.

On the site today, Jon will reminisce about attending the 1977 All-Star Game at the original-but-renovated Yankee Stadium, and John will review Joey Gallo as a highly-enticing trade target. Later on, Andrés will write about Jasson Dominguez’s promotion to Low-A Tampa as his first big challenge, and Josh will argue why Yankees fans should dare feel optimistic entering the second half. (There’s good reason to! We promise.)
