Series Preview: New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays (7/23-7/25)

Following their rain-shortened two-game series split against the Mets at home this past weekend, the Yankees head down South for three days to face the Rays in Tampa Bay.  Tropicana Field has, in a way, been a house of horrors for New York, having gone just 4-9 at The Trop since the beginning of 2017 including an ugly three-game sweep just a month ago. The Yankees will begin play today at 63-34, five full games behind the first place Red Sox.  Tampa Bay comes in at 50-49, 19 games out of first and 9.5 games back of Seattle for the second Wild Card position. With trade rumors swirling for both squads and the teams headed in opposite directions, this series provides a key opportunity for the Yankees to get back on track and put pressure on Boston to once again close up the AL East race.




Chapman becomes US citizen

On April 29th, 2016, our new soon-to-be flamethrowing closer, Aroldis Chapman, became a Citizen of the United States of America. As we all know, Chapman is from Cuba and even though the relations between the United States and Cuba aren't as tense as they once were, tension still remains. Nonetheless, a big step for Chapman as he prepares for his May 9th return. Ironically, he returns against the Kansas City Royals, who arguably have had the best bullpen in baseball the last two seasons. You can check out Chapman's instagram post below.
