We’ll play two today, as the Yankees try to catch up on games they’ve seen rained out the last week. It’ll be a bit of a shock going from getting a respite on Thursday and Friday from this frustrating season to having a boatload of baseball packed into one day. If we’re fortunate, the Yankees will take both from their crosstown rivals and start the second half on a strong note. Thus far, we have not been fortunate.
On the site, John poses the question: Why have the Yankees struggled so much against the AL East? Kevin also looks back at memorable Yankee moments that have come on the Fourth of July, and Joe takes a trip around the team’s social media.
