    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    (As for catcher depth, Kyle Higashioka is likely better defensively than Sanchez or Romine and currently has a .856 OPS in AAA with 10 HRs in 124 ABs, and they now have Erik Kratz there too, who got some starts in the NL playoffs last year and was a hero in at least one game there).

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    I disagree, no reason to move Florial or Deivi Garcia, depending of course on who is out there and what NY's actual perception of those guys is. FWIW, yesterday Dan Szymborski, one of the better baseball writers around and the guy who invented ZiPS, ranked the 30 pitching staffs going forward...

    "Yankees 3.5 game lead in AL East is their largest since a 4-game lead on June 12, 2017."

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    Yeah, that was fun, Astros tomorrow. Even though it's a 4 game series, NY misses Cole who pitched today, and also Springer and Correa are out.

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    When Brett's headfirst slide into first actually works, you know things are going well.

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    TB doesn't even get a day off before playing in OAK tomorrow night, they really will need a huge game from Morton to save the pen.

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    Heh, I wanted him DFAd in the winter of 2017-2018 and he has done nothing since then to prove me wrong. Maybe he can be OK somewhere else but NY has multiple better options and they need the roster spot.

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    Multiple six run innings in the same game is a happy thing, assuming they're both for your team.

    6/19: Who’ll Stop the Rain?

    CIN sweeps HOU, who are struggling to score runs as they come to NY. They scored 7 runs in 3 games against CIN, Altuve came back today but Springer and Correa are still out and will not be back for the Yankee series.
