New York Post | George A. King III: Nobody knows when Opening Day will be, but whenever it comes (if it even does), it will likely bring a far more optimistic outlook for Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, who both looked certain to miss the original Opening Day with injuries. Now, barring any setbacks, they should be good to go whenever baseball itself is. | Bob Klapisch: What’s the world been like for Michael Kay, who normally spends his days talking sports on ESPN Radio before calling play-by-play for Yankees games on the YES Network? Kay talks to Klapisch about life without baseball, and much more, in this Q&A.

New York Post | George A. King III: King spoke to Dan Fiorito, who was slated to start as manager of the Staten Island Yankees this summer. The 29-year-old Fiorito is a New York lifer who grew up rooting for the Yankees, with Derek Jeter as his favorite player. Fiorito discusses all the ways the Yankees organization is working to make sure minor league players can stay sharp during the suspension.
