@Yankees1 H

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are playing in a series with the expected balance that ignores where each team is in their respective 2022 campaigns. It doesn't matter that the Yanks have a commanding lead in the AL East, and the Red Sox have a sub-.500 record in last place of the division.

This series heads into the rubber match at a dead-even split with each ballclub taking a 3-2 win over the first couple of games, and the Yankees will look to get out with a series win at Fenway en route to regaining their first-half form.

Rizzo's birthday cake

Anthony Rizzo missed a handful of games this past week with lower-back tightness, but also celebrated his 33rd birthday on August 8th. So, his teammates decided to mess with him a little bit by putting "we got your back" on his birthday cake.

New York Post | Jon Heyman: Apparently the chase for Luis Castillo ahead of August 2nd's trade deadline was a real one, although it seems the Reds were less interested in the Yankees' offer than you might expect. The club offered top outfield prospect Jasson Dominguez as the headliner in a trade package, but balked at the inclusion of either Anthony Volpe or Oswald Peraza, and Cincy clearly prioritized the higher-ranked infielders.

Boston Globe | Peter Abraham: Andrew Benintendi made a second homecoming of sorts this weekend, returning to Fenway for the first time since being dealt to Kansas City over the winter.

His Cardinals hadn't won a World Series since he was in preschool. And there was Jim Mielke, wedged into the front row of the Busch Stadium bleachers, his right leg dangling over the right-field wall. He watched Bruce Sutter fire the final strike from upon the glorious green stage. And right then, Mielke broke the fourth wall by jumping over the outfield wall.

"I remember the drop down being farther that I thought it would be," said Mielke, 60, who was 20 in 1982. "It was chaos, people running in every direction. And I've always been a souvenir guy.

We're now two starts into Jose Quintana's Cardinals tenure and it appears there's already an arsenal adjustment in the works. You all should know by now that I love arsenal adjustments.

I find it fascinating when a pitcher tweaks his pitches in an effort to improve. And I find it especially fascinating that Quintana may be changing his arsenal.

Tere's two reasons why. The first is that he's a successful pitcher. He had a 3.24 FIP and 2.1 fWAR with the Pirates. You all know how the old saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
