Stanton will be ready (until he gets hurt again) for the start of the season, if and when there is a start of the season. Bummer for Clint Frazier, who was killing the ball in spring training.

That’s next week. New Rochelle, home of Mariano Rivera, is pretty bad. Ritchie Petrie‘s family under lockdown.
It's really no worse than most places. There's just restrictions on businesses and social activity.

Can't believe I'm saying it's not so bad. But yea, I'd say SF has it the worst right now in terms of restrictions. I went out yesterday to get meat from the butcher and places are just open but serving through their windows and people are following rules for the most part about standing apart from each other.

Much the same in Rhode Island, Crow. People get it. A month from now, who knows?

I have a 2019 Yankee/Padres game on on YES, and Cameron Maybin came up, and I was sad again that NY decided not to bring him back even though he was awesome on and off the field and said publicly how much he wanted to come back. That was before he lined a single to RF, stole second and third and scored when the catcher threw it into LF.

So I decided to look at NY's OF depth, to remind myself and see where he might have slotted in.

NY had three OFs hurt when the world went on hold, Stanton is again as allegedly ready as anyone, Hicks I think is close but it depends when things actually restart, and Judge is still a huge question mark for the entire season as far as I'm concerned. So with that in mind:

LF: Andujar, Tauchman
CF: Gardner, Tauchman
RF: Stanton, Tauchman
DH/occasional LF: Frazier

So even with no Judge, that is five guys plus Hicks back soon for six, plus the very intriguing Zack Granite and Rosell Herrera next up, both 27 and possibly ready to blossom.

So I can see both sides of the Maybin thing, that's a good bit of OF depth already, especially once Andujar showed he could somehow be competent in LF despite never playing there before. It's a bummer though, maybe NY can pick him up down the stretch again if they need (he signed with DET).

Maybe the Yanks were trying to save a million bucks. Maybin signed with Detroit for $1.5M. Andujar and Tauchman are both minimum wage guys, right?
They can always buy him back at the Aug. 31 trade deadline! Joking.

Strongly suspect I'm the only one going to get the Petrie reference. My best friend came from New Rochelle (RIP Peter), which was the town we Jews moved to since Scarsdale was VERY restricted back then.... Speaking of that era, Peter's family lived next door to Arnold Stang an iconic character of that era's TV....

Arnold Stang was great. Had a juicy cameo in “It’s a Mad, Mad, World” with Jonathan Winters.

Watching Larsen’s perfect game tonight. The Yankees’ lineup hardly befits the dynasty. Yogi, Mickey, and then some solid guys like Bauer, Martin and McDougald. 40-year-old Enos Slaughter in left. Andy Carey on third. Joe Collins on first. A young Elston Howard on the bench. Pitching staff was nothing special, outside of Ford. And they won the World Series. Talent is so much deeper now, with twice as many teams.

Of the era’s household names and faces, certainly, but what do you make of Ralph Terry, Bobby Richardson, and Bobby Brown?
I'm basically the same age as Terry, so I was also 8 when Larsen was perfect and '56 is the first year I have strong memories of the Yankees. Brown, like DiMaggio, is really just before my time. Terry was a legit star for a few years and should have made a greater impression, but Richardson I freely confess is a major blind spot probably because I was a big fan of Kubek and I wasn't sure he was still with us....

Michael Schur/'Ken Tremendous', responsible for great TV shows like The Good Place and Parks and Recreation and The Office (co-creator) is a big Sox fan/Yankee hater who posts here occasionally, and who just posted a video after his LA food bank fundraising goals were hit. I know I'm a terrible person for taking advantage of that, but also this is a super tempting avatar.

News today that Paxton says he is a hundred percent back currently, we thought this already but good to have him reconfirm it:

""I think I've thrown probably 12, 14 bullpens," Paxton told the YES Network on Friday. "It's my back feeling really good. My back is a non-issue. I feel totally healthy, so I'll be ready to go as soon as the season comes about. ... I think I'm back to full strength.""

Judge's girl busted for DUI in Arizona

That’s not going to endear her to the judge.

Meanwhile, according to my ESPN fantasy app, Judge has yet to swing a bat yet. Though, Marcus Thames correctly used “champing at the bit” to describe his readiness.
