I don’t know about you, but I feel much more enthused talking about the Yankees of late. The trade deadline has come and gone, the team has made some key improvements, and now they’ll attempt to make a charge through the dog days of summer. The pack of playoff contenders have a decent lead on the Yanks, but the wild card is already within striking distance and the gap is far from insurmountable. The past month has been filled with winning baseball, outside of an odd and improbable series in Boston — and a rematch isn’t far off the horizon.
We know which players will take the field for this final chapter of the season, and we know what has to happen for a deep playoff run to be possible. The question then becomes how do the Yankees get there? How impactful will Rizzo and Gallo wind up being? How much will Corey Kluber and Luis Severino end up mattering to the stretch run? If you’ve got questions like these, or any other concerns, be sure to send them in for a chance to be featured in our Yankees mailbag.
Answers will run on Friday morning. All questions received by the night of August 5th will be considered. You can leave your submissions in the comment section below or by e-mail to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com.
