Today on Pinstripe Alley - 5/12/23

It’s Friday after a frustrating loss.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees again looked listless last night, dropping the opener of this important four-game set against the Rays. There’s hope, though, as Gerrit Cole is the man on the mound tonight. It feels very important that Cole deals, in part because he needs to bounce back after last Sunday’s tough start in Tampa, and also because this team just needs to avoid losing more ground in this series.

This morning, we’ll see Matt recap a light day of AL action, and Sam provide the latest entry in our 1998 Yankees diary, while Josh examines the Rays early schedule, to try and gauge how much poor competition impacted their incredible start. Later on, John will analyze the Yankees’ defense in detail, and Casey speaks on the confidence Harrison Bader brings to the field, while Madison delivers the answers to this week’s mailbag.
