- Ken Rosenthal on Aaron Judge and how his makeup endeared him to the Yankees.
- Jeff Sullivan on Aaron Hicks, who seems to be breaking out this season.
- Travis Sawchik used Statcast to attempt to measure Yankee Stadium’s actual dimensions.
Here’s an open thread for the evening. The Mets are playing and MLB Network is showing a regional game, likely Red Sox vs. Orioles for those of you in the Tri-State Area. That series has been such an embarrassment for baseball. Also, the (hockey) Rangers are playing Game Four of their second round playoff series, and there are a pair of NBA playoff games on as well. Talk about anything here that is not religion or politics. Thanks in advance.
