A couple months ago, rainouts occasionally seemed like reprieves. Days off meant that a Yankee team that was constantly shooting itself in the foot would be forcibly prevented from finding a new and improved way to collapse spectacularly on that particular night. No longer, as a rainout now only threatens to slow the Yankees’ roll. They’ve won nine in a row, but will have to wait until Monday to kick off a two-game set with the Braves.

On the site, Josh discusses how the tricky lineup decisions posed by the presence of both Anthony Rizzo and Luke Voit present Aaron Boone with his time to shine, Erica highlights what to follow across the league with the Yankees off today, Estevão runs around the American League playoff picture, and Joe spins through Yankees social media.

Fun Questions:

2. The Yankees play the Rays for their final season of the series. Will that series have divisional implications?
