  1. I don't think he needs to turn anything around necessarily. He's pitched pretty well and been improving. You're right maybe he's not on the right team, but this year they are going to try him as a "utility reliever." New York Yankees creating the utility pitcher (calltothepen.com)
  2. Outside of Stanton it's hard to think of any other position player whose outlook is SO health dependent. He'll either put up the numbers or he'll be hurt.
  3. I agree with those numbers, definitely doable in that lineup.
  4. Because the Phillies might have caught it from the Marlins. They will probably postpone the whole series unless the testing comes back ASAP
  5. No disrespect to the Marlins fan out there but no one is really going to notice whether or not half the Miami lineup is minor leaguers. But if they spread it to the Phillies and then the Yanks and you start seeing contenders dropping like flies there's going to be major repercussions.
  6. Assuming everyone who has played so far showed up with a clean slate we frankly don't know if playing baseball is conducive to spread or not. But we're about to find out.
  7. The question in my mind is whether they 1) broke MLB protocol or 2) there was no MLB protocol in place to begin with for what happens after a positive test. So either the team screwed up royally, or the MLB protocols are incredibly, dangerously bad. If it's the latter I do believe there may actually be implications for the sport beyond this season. What if the players decide they don't want to keep playing amid this obviously unaddressed and potentially deadly risk?
  8. River Ave Blues put it pretty succinctly - if they can't play because of the virus, so be it. It might be the case for all sports. But if they scotch the season because a bunch of millionaires and billionaires can't reach a financial compromise it's gonna burn baseball to the ground.
  9. Up until now I think the upside was a Sabathia-esque trajectory for the next few years as he figured out how to pitch with a different set of weapons. Now even that might be expecting too much.
  10. French Ligue 1 and 2 playing behind closed doors until April 15. In Germany all gatherings of more than 1,000 people are off. MLB and other American leagues are surely taking notice.
  11. I'd add any games in the northeast where the weather is cooler too. Confirmed cases in DC, Maryland and Pennsylvania (Philly burbs).
  12. Gary Sanchez out of camp today with a fever. Team would not say if he is being tested for COVID-19 but surely he will be.
  13. Not in camp today because he's running a fever. Team would not disclose if he is being tested for COVID-19.
  14. I caught some of an interview a few weeks ago in which he admitted he didn't prepare enough last year and said he was recommitting to prep work and getting back to basics this year. Who knows if he can stave of Father Time for another year but I think he might be undervalued a bit at this point.
