A Saturday in the bay.

The West Coast trip rolls on, as the Yankees will again have another chance to beat up on an AL cellar-dwellar tonight in Oakland. They’ll throw Domingo Germán to the mound, with right-hander holding his own in the Yankee rotation. After getting roughed up in his first outing off the IL, Germán has a 2.84 ERA over his last six starts, and a .697 OPS allowed.

We’ll have plenty on the site today to keep you occupied ahead of another late-night matchup. I’ll have a look at the rest last night’s AL action, as well as an update of the Aaron Judge Home Run Record Tracker. Meanwhile, Esteban takes a closer look at Aaron Judge’s defensive work in center field, and Andrés wonders if we should be worried about the Yankees’ pitching staff.

New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics

Fun Questions/Prompts:

1. Who finishes the year with a better wRC+/OPS+, Aaron Judge, or Paul Goldschmidt?

2. Do you expect to see other young stars take extensions similar in structure to the one Julio Rodriguez signed?
