First the game, then the other MAJOR ramifications.
The Yanks (11-8-2) did beat Washington today, 6-3, to go to 11-8-2 on the spring training schedule.
BUT…. there it will stay for now.
Because of the coronavirus epidemic, the rest of spring training has been cancelled and the regular season has been pushed back two weeks—-AT LEAST. Could be more.
Everything is off right now. The NBA, NHL, XFL… all suspended or cancelled. March Madness for the guys and gals is cancelled.
Schools cancelled. Colleges doing online courses only.
Golf first said that it would go on with no spectators—after all, if there is only two golfers per hole with their caddies, no problem and no one in the next 450 yards, right? But now it looks like that is out, too.
If you want to look on the bright side of life (cue Monty Python) this actually may help the Yanks regarding injuries/illness like Judge, Sanchez, Stanton and Paxton. But you don’t really want this as the way to help yourselves.
The Yanks did win, 6-3. Tyler Wade had two hits, inc. a 2-run HR. Good. He was struggling.
Diego Castillo had 2 hits.
Loaisiga 3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 W, 3 K. Gave up HR. 2.70
Tropeano (W, 1-1) 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 W, 1 K. 5.19
Hale (H, 1) 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 6.14. Good job, but enough?
Abreu 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 5.40
So, there won’t be many updates for a while, not until this virus clears up.
Good news: Aaron Judge feels better.
