Today on Pinstripe Alley - 2/17/22

Opening Day creeps one Thursday closer with no end to the lockout in sight.

Happy Thursday. We have slightly better CBA news than we normally do, as there is supposed to be a meeting today between MLB and the MLBPA. The players’ union will present a proposal this afternoon. To be clear, I fully expect the owners to reject it, but hey, better to be meeting than not, I suppose.

Today on the site, Jon will begin a two-parter on the worst seasons in Yankees history by position, Jesse will make a modest proposal about what MLB might slash next after attempting to cut many minor league jobs, and John will look back on a recent signing that was a stroke of brilliance: DJ LeMahieu’s first contract. Later on, Matt will detail Babe Ruth’s forgotten-but-amusing dalliance with cricket, and John will break down Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton’s performances based on lineup construction in 2021.

Fun Questions:

1. Were you one of the lucky fans who got to see the Yankees play the Red Sox in London back in 2019?

2. Have you ever watched cricket?
