Your rundown as the West Coast trip rolls along.

MLB: New York Yankees at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Well, two in a row is two in a row. If you stayed up late last night, or this morning, you saw the Yankees start a winning streak. They’ll need a few longer streaks than this to get back into the race, but it’s a start.

On the site, John wonders if the Yankees should go all-in on an opener strategy with their rotation struggling. Cooper analyzes mechanical adjustments made (or not made) by Gary Sánchez and Gleyber Torres, Erica runs down the Yankee farm system’s strength and weaknesses ahead of the draft, and Peter looks at the Pirates as a potential trade partner.

Fun Questions:

1. Which Yankee’s at-bats do you get most excited for on a day-to-day basis? Those of Aaron Judge? Giancarlo Stanton? Sánchez?

2. If I had told you four months ago the Mariners would have a better record than the Yankees at this point, would you have assumed that the Mariners were shockingly one of the best teams in the league, or that the Yankees were surprisingly stuck in the middle?
