Well, it’s Thursday, and the Yankees will play a rubber game with the lowly Reds tonight. This has been an oddly wild series, featuring late comebacks, and a walkoff wild pitch. If it ultimately yields a Yankee series win, it will be hard to complain, but this certainly hasn’t been the finest stretch of baseball in the Bronx.
On the site, our trade deadline coverage continues, as Peter looks at a big-time target, Luis Castillo, while John examines a lower-profile one in Michael A. Taylor. Andrew will run down last night’s AL action and hop on the latest PSA podcast with Kunj, and Matt looks back at the times a Yankee should have won All-Star Game MVP.
