Thursday night open thread: 6/11/15

Happy Thursday night. This is the last off day for the Yankees for the next three weeks. They are about to enter a stretch of 20 straight games and with the injury to Andrew Miller, those 20 games will be interesting to say the least.

In case you missed it, today was a big day for content on IIATMS.

EJ started things off with a post wondering if the Yankees are the best team in the American League. If they start to slump, you can blame him.

Then Brad kicked into high gear with a recap of Days 2 and 3 of the MLB Draft, he posted about the David Carpenter trade and he wrote about Joe Girardi's bullpen usage.

Next, EJ wrote about Mason Williams' promotion and how he should be platooned with Chris Young while he's up here.

Then Susan wrote about the challenges Girardi will be facing without Miller in the bullpen.

And finally Scott wrote about short players and how many of them make it big in the Majors. Apparently Tony Renda is shorter than me. I had no idea!

Feel free to discuss those pieces or anything your hearts desire as long as you keep it respectful.
