This is unprecedented in modern baseball. We have never encountered a global pandemic and tried to deal with it. Enter 2020.
The new rules. The stadiums with the fake noise when we can watch a game. The fake fans ain the stands. It's become the new norm.
So what do we do now? Accept this when we had NO spring training and our players are being hurt at an unprecedented rate again?
Or is just the Yankees being the Yankees given the inured list last year? Paxton could be headed for Tommy John. Who knows how long the rest will sit with injuries of how long who knows at this point. Judge, Stanton, LeMahieu. Who knows about Torres, Paxton.
However it seems like the Yankee injury pandemic which has been hitting since last year is affecting the players harder in this short season.
Who understands this whole thing. They had longer during the off-season to get ready and we saw pictures of the players that were unbelievable. See Stanton?
But we failed in the first must-win of the series of the season and got swept badly. This was NOT our team that was beating Covid19 and everyone else earlier in the season.
The Mets might be might be playing us this weekend. MIGHT as they have a couple of positives. Sigh. Covid. But it might be a good thing. LET'S GO YANKEES! We need time off. But the best to them.
