Happy Friday and Labor Day weekend, everyone. It’s looking like an absolutely gorgeous next few days in New York now that the remnants of Ida have passed through here. I hope any of you affected by the storm are safe and sound now that it’s passed by. Things got pretty hairy here for a bit, that’s for sure.

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve opened the mailbag, but it returns today. There are a few questions to address after the jump, but first, a reminder to send your questions to viewsfrom314 [at] gmail [dot] com or tweet us @ViewsFrom314Ft. We’ll include our favorites in future editions.


Mailbag: Offensive projections, expectations for Severino and Kluber, and mic’d up Yankees

Happy Friday, everyone. Tonight is an atypical off day for the Yankees as they travel from Iowa to Chicago to resume the series against the White Sox tomorrow. It’s a much needed reprieve, too. The Bombers just completed a 17 games in 17 days stretch with a number of players on the injured list and the bullpen stretched thin. Regardless, they went 12-5 during this portion of the slate, which is an unmitigated success. Were there a few blown games? Sure, but that’s par for the course with the 2021 Yankees. I’d have signed up for 12-5 before this part of the schedule, that’s for sure.

Today, we have a few good mailbag questions to address before we head into the weekend. As always, shoot your questions to viewsfrom314 [at] gmail [dot] com and we’ll answer our favorites in future editions. Now, let’s get to this week’s best.

Mailbag: The future of the Infield and the loaded farm system

Good start to the weekend to all of you! Let’s hope it goes better for the Yankees than yesterday after another bullpen fail (We miss you Loaisiga!).

Now, to today’s subject. The mailbag! I’m pinch-hitting for Bobby on this one and hope to do at least partially as well as he does. Remember to send us any questions you have to so we can have a little chat about it next Friday.

The first two are about the infield configuration for next season with a focus on a certain underperforming SS this season. Let’s bunch them together:

Mailbag: Changeup Usage, Bullpen, Joey Gallo, Jose Berrios, Jeopardy

Happy Friday, everyone. It’s a weird one. The Yankees love to take very long, unexpected delays after giving up sickening walk-off home runs to Jose Altuve, huh? Even if this season goes nowhere, I really want to get the taste of last Sunday out of my mouth. To that end, we’ll keep you posted as we hear more today about the COVID scare and how that will impact tonight’s game.

Until then, it’s time for another mailbag. We got plenty of good questions this week and, as usual, I chose my favorites below. Send yours in to to be included in a future edition, which runs every Friday.

Mailbag: Locastro, Rule 5, Draft Hypothetical, Disappointment

Happy Friday, everyone. The Yankees won a series but couldn’t complete a sweep. Shocking, right? Still, I’m choosing to be positive. They needed to win that series and they did. That’s a good start. Now they’re on to Houston.

Before that, though, let’s answer some mailbag questions. As always, send yours to and we’ll answer our favorites each Friday.
