NY did get one last game in today just before MLB (obviously correctly) pulled the plug on everything, Loaisiga started and pitched 3 strong innings against the Nats starters (3 1 1 1 1 3) and Tyler Wade hit a HR off Sean Doolittle, especially notable because it is lefty/lefty.


NY will have a chance to get healthier with the delayed season, Paxton and Stanton and maybe Judge could start the season after all. So if NY starts a 120 game season with a rotation of Cole/Paxton/Tanaka/Happ/Montgomery with Loaisiga, Deivi, Schmidt and King in reserve, that is the strongest rotation they have had in a long long time.

Also more bad career luck for the seemingly cursed Clint Frazier, he was crushing this spring (1.055 OPS) and now one or both of Stanton/Judge will likely be back before he gets a chance.

But yeah, we're pretty far from any of that now. Good luck to all, stay safe as best you can.

Thanks, Jon. The “pause” does help injured players all across sports.

Loved what Wade did yesterday.

You wonder if baseball GMs might use this time to evaluate their rosters and make minor trades. They have nothing else to do.

If our players all follow the advice of our current medical and training 'experts' I expect 10% don't survive and 50% get infected. BTW a paper released in The Lancet today says a significant % of those with at least 'moderate' infection suffer permanent lung damage. It also shows that the virus seems to stay viable in those with mild to moderate infection for around 20-21 days, NOT 14 so, if they are correct, we are quarantining for about 2/3 of the time we should be....
