MLB: New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The season has only just started, but the Yankees have quickly subjected us to the grind. Thanks to rain delays and extra innings, the Yankees have played three straight games that have ended close to midnight local time. The strange, tight games, and the occasionally frustrating offense, have been reminiscent of the midseason malaise of 2021. But they will have a chance to take a series today and build some positive momentum, if they can win the rubber match in Baltimore.

On the site, Estevão explores a subtle adjustment that Gerrit Cole has made over the course of his first two starts. Also, Andres opines that Nestor Cortes looks ready to prove that his 2021 was no fluke, while Joe spins around this week in Yankees social media.
