With a sweep of the Red Sox in the books, the Yankees move on to an important four-game series with the Twins. No, Minnesota is far from a contender for a playoff spot, but they represent one of the weakest opponents remaining on the Yankees’ schedule. It behooves them to keep the good times rolling against a bad team before embarking on next week’s road trip.

On the site, Matt previews the matchup with Minnesota, Joe discusses how Luis Gil’s progression has helped cancel out Deivi García’s regression, Jon finds precedents in Yankee history for teams that underperformed before going on a second-half tear, Esteban analyzes Joey Gallo’s performance, and Andrew and Kunj bring us the latest episode of the PSA podcast.
