Since then MLB found it necessary to tinker with the game. More offense, in their opinion, equals more excitement, more eyeballs and more fans in the seats. I couldn't disagree more!

    Who is to say a slugfest is more exciting than a pitchers duel? Network execs? MLB officials? Pundits? The commissioners office is tasked with safe guarding the health of the game. I question at times if they are the best arbiter of health.

    Football punishes defenses to help the offense.
    Basketball does the same.

    The US is all about a score.

    Manfred is bar none, the worst commissioner of any major sport, in my lifetime.

    I agree. We all enjoy a game winner or walk off HR. The pendulum has swung too far. Once they lowered the mound the die was cast and there was no returning.

    This extra inning fiasco (runner on 2B) is an insult to the game and another concession by MLB in attempt to attract younger viewers by adding an element and shortening the game. I would expect it in Little League were kids have homework to do and bedtimes!

    Nick You are exaggerating. The vaccine works in preventing serious illness and hospitalization. It does not prevent transmission. If I read the news correctly the Yankee coaches tested positive, BUT were asymptomatic.

    According to the CDC: COVID-19 vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. That means it is possible a person could still get COVID-19 before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection. People are considered fully protected two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

    Although COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting sick, scientists are still learning how well vaccines prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to others, even if you do not have symptoms. Early data show the vaccines do help keep people with no symptoms from spreading COVID-19, but we are learning more as more people get vaccinated.

    We’re also still learning how long COVID-19 vaccines protect people.

    Yankees say Severino woke up this morning with “a stiff back” so he won’t throw live BP today. Expected he will throw tomorrow instead.

    Geesh

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    4 coaches and 3 staff have now tested positive in total for the Yankees.

    All had been considered fully vaccinated.

    6 of the 7 are considered asymptomatic.

    If we could actually believe what the Yanks say about their players injuries, this wouldn't be a big deal. Knowing the Yanks accuracy on injuries, Sevy is probably due for back surgery by the end of the week.

    I knew it , sevy for the last 2 years now has been one set back after another . This is one reason why I am not convinced he will be a major factor this season

    Supposedly the J&J vaccine had their clinical trials in africa, where the vaccine may be less effective against the variant there, hence their lower efficacy compared to pfizer and moderna. Efficacy may be much higher against the original strain of covid. It's still really odd that like half the staff got covid. Not sure what vaccine everyone else took.

    Sevy is expected to throw tomorrow which they announced tonight. So obviously it wasn't anything serious and he's still on schedule

    "Louis Severino's Thursday throwing session has been canceled. He is now experiencing tingling and numbness in his legs and feet. This recent development has been attributed to the J&J vaccine and the first potential case of clotting in a male.
    The Yankees insist they are not concerned but have sent him to Beth Israel Special Research Division, for further evaluation and monitoring"




    Wtf. I can't believe this.







    Because I wrote it

    Boone said reports he got on Severino's live BP was his fastball touched 96 mph and that it went "really well."
