Should MLB have a season and if Aaron Judge is healthy, the Yankees are going to play him because the games obviously will count and he is a big part of the lineup. Big league teams don’t sit a healthy player while looking toward the next season. As for how many games will be played, nobody knows.

John Sterling, the radio voice of the Yankees since 1989, doesn’t discriminate when someone from his ballclub hits one in the seats. Everyone from the superstars to the subs get signature home run calls, and fans are so fascinated that you can find lists of what he called out and/or sang for most everyone on websites.

New York Post | George A. King III: Last year’s first round draft pick Anthony Volpe got into just one spring training game this year before a positive COVID-19 test from a Yankee minor-leaguer sent him and the rest of the team’s prospects into quarantine. This is the second straight year the shortstop has had a season cut short by a virus, missing time last year after contracting mononucleosis. Hopefully, 2020 will be the last time Volpe is sent home by illness.

On Friday the 13th, Suzyn Waldman boarded a plane with her Yankees radio co-host John Sterling and reporter Sweeny Murti. It was a JetBlue flight heading back to Westchester filled with disappointed baseball fans.

I think (Jonathan) Loaisiga was an interesting option. We kicked that around. Whether it was a full starter or opener or kind of a Swiss Army Knife role, but he had obviously really taken a step forward for us this year, which was exciting to see,” Blake said.
