Yesterday was one of the more consequential days of this Yankees season. They made their move, firing several prospect bullets to haul in slugging outfielder Joey Gallo. They also took care of business on the field, defeating the Rays in Tampa to put themselves one win away from a crucial sweep of their rivals. They have Gerrit Cole going to the mound this afternoon looking to secure said sweep.

On the site, we’ll have more coverage of the Gallo deal, as John provides a look at the community reaction, and Peter looks downfield at what the Yankees might be thinking next. Plus, Andres discusses Ian Kennedy, an old friend from another lifetime, as a trade candidate, while Cooper analyzes some signs of life from Gleyber Torres.
