It’s safe to say that the Yankees and White Sox are objectively an entertaining matchup for the outside viewer, and a stress-inducing one for fans of either club. This series has gone down to the wire in both games so far, setting up a crucial rubber match that could give the winning team some big momentum moving forward. The Yankees need every win they can take, so a series win against a tough opponent like Chicago would be a big boost to their postseason hunt after feasting on some lesser teams.

Before first pitch arrives, take some time to check out what we’ve got prepped for you today. John takes inspiration from the oddity of the Yanks’ day game performances to find some other weird stats from recent years, while Josh dives into Jameson Taillon’s minor correction in his delivery that has helped him bring his season numbers in line. Matt was also inspired to look back at former Yankees seasons, this time looking at double plays of days past and the unfortunate Yankees who have hit into three in a single game. Joe delivers the social media spotlight, and then after the game Estevão gives us the rundown on this week’s playoff hunt movement.
