Today on Pinstripe Alley - 6/23/23

The best out in the west is coming into town, and no it’s not those guys.

Well, it’s a good thing that the Yankees secured the series win before Thursday night, because their finale with Seattle was a big ol’ dud. Domingo Germán was dreadful, the offense was lifeless until the last chance, and the only entertaining thing that happened was Isiah Kiner-Falefa impersonating Shohei Ohtani on the mound and at the plate for an inning. The trade offer is in your mailbox, Los Angeles — don’t think just go with your gut.

On a more serious note, a new foe is in town with the Rangers arriving, and Estevão has a series preview for you on them. Sam takes us back to ‘98 and the second game of a ‘96 World Series rematch against Atlanta, Casey responds to Hal Steinbrenner’s recent interview, Malachi breaks down Gerrit Cole’s at-bat against José Caballero, and Noah delivers the latest fan poll results. Sandwiching all of this, I’ll have the rivalry roundup and the mailbag ready for you.

1. Have Domingo Germán’s recent stinkers nullified his early success?

2. Will Estevan Florial get a legitimate (if at all!) shot this year?
