Wasn’t yesterday nice? The Yankees didn’t lose! Sure, they didn’t play, but you take the relative wins as they come by! Sadly, they must resume the baseball tonight, and against no less an annoying opponent than the Red Sox. I would say that this has all the makings of a disappointing weekend with the Yankees already riding an L5, but I don’t think anyone outside the organization even has expectations anymore. Isn’t that fun?
Today on the site, Madison will have the abbreviated Rivalry Roundup, Matt will preview this three-game series against the Red Sox, and Peter will remember happier times with the 1998 Yankees. Later on, Josh will editorialize about the Yankees’ appearance vs. real action, and Madison will answer your mailbag questions.
