Will Mother Nature go 3-0 this weekend?

The forecast has been the Yankees’ enemy recently, though you might consider it their ally if you think they needed some time away from the game after their latest gaffe of a loss. Either way, rainouts have postponed the last two scheduled matches for New York, and the weather will be an adversary to today’s game against the Mets as well. The Subway Series has truly been submerged by the weather this time around.

Assuming that the matinee gets underway as scheduled, we’ll have a bit of content to tide you over before start time. Dan is taking a look at the organization’s top prospects and examining whether any of them could earn a graduation to the majors this year, while Andrés is dialing in on Hoy Jun Park’s case specifically. After the game, Matt will take us to history class with a look back at some of the best hitting performances by Yankees pitchers.

Fun Questions:

1. Gerrit Cole had a 1.43 ERA in March/April, a 2.18 ERA in May, and a 4.65 ERA in June. Will his July ERA start with a 2, 3, or 4?

2. How much of a mess would it be if a third straight game got postponed by rain?
