1:05 p.m. game on TBS. Lefty Patrick Corbin vs. the Yankees’ bullpen. My guess would be David Hale opens.
Yanks optioned Clint Frazier and Ben Heller to the Scranton game after last night’s game. I wonder if Clint has a regular girl friend in Scranton. And is he even allowed to see her?

Stanton has always killed lefties, his career OPS is 150 points higher against lefties than righties. Considering those first two homers were against righties, I’m guessing Corbin didn’t sleep so well.

Stanton is going to get walked a lot unless Boone finds a better way to protect him in the lineup.

Andujar with his first career start in the OF (majors or minors), Tauchman with his season debut, Higashioka in too. Would have liked to see Ford in for Voit today also, ah well.

LeMahieu 2B
Judge RF
Gleyber SS
Stanton DH
Voit 1B
Urshela 3B
Andujar LF
Higashioka C
Tauchman CF

Loaisiga starting, can go up to 50 pitches or so.

Also today is the first YES game, never have I been so glad to hear Michael Kay.

What was the story again about how Corbin went to the Nats and not his favorite team?
Not much of a story, they paid him a lot more than Cashman wanted to.

Corbin makes NY look feeble in the first.

Loaisiga has great stuff but is having trouble putting Turner away, already on his 10th pitch.

I know it’s commonplace now, but I always find it the heat guys throw commonplace now. All these flamethrowers like it’s nothing, with movement.

Used to amaze me when a guy hit 95, 96 with a little movement. That would be dim with this team’s staff.

22 pitches for Loaisiga in the 1st, have to think they'd really like three innings out of him if possible.

Have you read The MVP Machine by Ben Lindbergh? Abbey gave it to me last year. Great explanation of new training techniques that add velocity for pitchers.

With no fans, is a 3B allowed to jump into the stands and catch a foul ball a few rows deep if they can get there? Maybe the netting will keep this from being a possibility.

I've meant to! Heard great things, Lindbergh does a ton well in reporting. Sounds especially fascinating as someone who loves studying pitcher trends.

Higgy throws out Robles, that helps the pitch count. 35 after 2 innings.

Corbin dominating first time through the lineup, 9 up, 9 down, 5 Ks.

Wish Loaisiga was a little more stretched out, starting to get into a groove now but this might be his last batter.

That felt like a weak fly off the bat, much less than the 421 feet it went.
Without crowd noise, and with fewer camera angles, judging homers on the TV is a new fan issue. I thought the pitch location and contact was an oh-no moment.

So Judge smashes a bullet right at Turner positioned near the bag. An out. Gleyber hits a hard grounder 10 feet to the right and into CF for the first hit. Ernie Johnson sitting in his studio says Gleyber “solved” Corbin. And Judge didn’t.

I'm reminded why live sports suck.

While it's obviously better than watching old games on YouTube, having to live and die on David Hale pitches or having to listen to Starlin Castro play his best defense in years is a great way to ruin my Sunday.

NY turns a DP for the second straight inning, time for the offense to wake up.

Corbin today reminds me of Whitey Ford, who used to just throw strikes all the time and have hitters eating out of his hand.

Nats are a fun team to watch when they aren't playing my team. I'm not convinced they have enough offense this year after Rendon left, but that rotation could be special.

On the bright side (for me), my wife is making pizza from scratch for the first time this quarantine.
