Two weeks until the end of the year.

Yesterday was an extremely quiet day on the baseball landscape. So since they didn’t help me out at all, I’m just going to talk about our lead photo subject for a second, Luis Sojo. You won’t see him on the Top 100 Yankees, but do yourself a favor and peruse his tagged highlights on MLB.com. Sure, there’s the World Series game-winning hit (which we’ve discussed before), but there are some other nuggets there, too.* Enjoy!

*As an added bonus, there’s also his Little League Grand Slam in the 1995 AL West playoff.

Today on the site, Matt will remember a a snakebitten two-start stretch of dominance over a century ago from Deadball Era pitcher George Mogridge, and Josh will discuss a very familiar face for our next Top 100 player. Later, Estevão will run through the Yankees’ best leadoff options at the moment for 2024 and John will handle the weekly social media roundup.

Questions/Prompts:

1. How worried are you about Ryan Pepiot breaking out in Tampa Bay?

2. In lieu of another prompt, please just enjoy this bonkers two-point conversion in the FCS semifinals.
