Here's a thing: The Yankees entered today third in batting average (.290), third in OPS (.870) and fourth in homers (41) against left-handed starters this season. And that's without Giancarlo Stanton. If they meet in the World Series, the Dodgers would probably use three against them — Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Rich Hill.

Gleyber Torres told me that MLB has not reached out to him regarding his criticism of the umpires yesterday. Torres was frustrated when his run was invalidated when time was called. Torres: "I didn't see an umpire call time. I'm a little bit surprised I had to come back to third base. I don't know what's wrong with the umpires today."

Domingo Germán will be on the mound for the Yankees this Sunday Night Baseball against the Dodgers. Germán will be sporting his nickname "Sunday", which is the translation of his first name, Domingo. Germán told me it's always been a dream of his to pitch at Dodger Stadium, and is particularly excited to do it against one of the pitchers he's always idolized, Clayton Kershaw.

Sam Darnold received post-game praise from Saints QB Drew Brees. "I've been impressed with him, just from what I've seen, kind of the way he's handled everything," said Brees, who met Darnold at a Super Bowl event. "It's a tough position, obviously, with a lot of hype and a lot of expectations, and he's handled it well. He's only going to continue to improve and get better and better as they build the team around him." Brees called him an "extremely sharp kid" with a "really bright future."
