The Yankees/Mets game was rained out tonight.
ESPN was talking about the fact that both teams have a mutual off day on July 30.
Update: The game has been scheduled for an Aug. 13 makeup date.
Maybe the Yanks caught a break, and if the game is made up that day, they miss facing DeGrom.
I took a look at the schedule. Including what would have been tonight’s game, the next 40 games, which take us right up until Labor Day, are mostly against sub-.500 teams. In those 40, the only games against teams above .500 are say, six against Tampa Bay, who went into today 50-49, and four against Boston.
Based on the quality of the teams in those 40 games, I am hoping the Yanks go 28-12 in those 40 games. Hopefully better.
28-12 would take the Yanks to 91-46 with 25 games to go. 28-12 should (we hope) cut a few games off of Boston’s now five-game lead.
The schedule is favorable until Labor Day. The Yanks MUST take advantage of it.
