The shortened season is coming and with it many questions. As of now it is scheduled to start after a brief ST at Yankee stadium. The date set to play is July 23rd or 24th. All players and coaches and staff will follow New York States regulations as they pertain to the Corona Virus as much as they can be and players on the field are not allowed to high five etc or any close contact in dugouts where possible. I say good luck with that. I am glad for any kind of baseball at point. However some questions that I heard answered Are:


The Yankee will play most of their games in the division with 10 games each with the Birds, Toronto, Boston, and the Rays. 20 games will be split between Atlanta, the Marlins, Mets, Nats and Phillies.


Most of our IL players are back and ready with Judge actually still not all the way there. Hicks, Paxton, Stanton reportedly ready to go.


Teams will start with a 30 man roster, then down to 28 and finally 26 for the rest of the season.


So IMO that means that there will be the usual discussion about the AB's for Tauchman, Frazier, and Andujar as to who will get the most. I see the lineup for the first 6 or 7 games being different nearly every day. On the pitching side Paxton's return means Loaisaiga's role will be in question I would guess. Maybe as a jack of all trades or long man?


So ready or not, here they come and there will be a lot of juggling to do for Boone but to me I see all our guys having a lot of fun and playing to win regardless of the oddity of this whole situation.  ML Baseball is still ML Baseball. Now if I can only find out what the cable company will charge for a 60 game season instead of 162. That ought to be interesting. Go Yankees!

I couldn't be less interested. This is nothing more than a 60 game exhibition season.

Well, LDY, while I can't entirely disagree with your feelings about it, I will take anything Baseball right now as a distraction to the goings on all around us, in this country as it is. Anything I can focus on instead of being reminded and fed daily, of old games already played, TV reruns, and BS media news about anything they can report that is depressing, I will gladly take Baseball in any form right now.

well assuming the season actually gets underway, I'm excited for it to start. I agree that it will add to some of the distractions for us that we are faced with in this crazy, upside down world. I'm anxious to see if Judge is healded and how Stanton performs. I'm anxious to watch Cole pitch and the continued development of Torres. Just talking baseball will be fun and the importance of each game in a shortened season might add to the excitement. If the Yankees win, I'll be just as happy as if they win in a 162 game season.



Let's go Yankees

Hey New how are you doing? One of the reasons I'm not excited besides the 60 game shortened season are no fans in the stands, no high fives or contact amongst players and limited mound visits. After watching some encore games from last year I realized how much the fans are part of the game with the cheering and contact with players and just the ambience. It's going to be hard to watch a home run hit with no cheering, no contact by the third base coach or celebrations by the players in the dugout. That's just me, maybe it will grow on me.

Obviously it'll be different but, to me, baseball is baseball.


I'm OK with the rule "experiments"...DH, pitcher must face 3 batters. Putting a runner on at 2B to start extra innings...while it seems kinda hokey I understand the logic. But...wouldn't most managers just bunt the runner over to 3rd, and look to drive him in with a sac? Maybe not, since the art of bunting has been lost, and I recall seeing some SABR stats which say the odds of scoring with a man on 2nd with no outs are better than a runner on at 3rd with one out. 


Regardless, I'm looking forward to watching some MLB.

I guess as Yankee fans, we will see this season how it feels to be a Rays fan. No fans in the stands.LaughingLaughing (Sorry couldn't pass that up.) Nice to see some of you back in action! Let's play ball!

I'm looking forward to baseball but to me 60 is a joke and not a real season. 2020 is and * and stats will mess up career averages.


I don't care what purist say I love the DH and want it to stay. We don't spend $20-$30 million on a pitcher and need him batting or running the bases.


Man on 2nd in the 10th is the dumbest idea ever and I hope it is a utter disaster.
