Good morning to everyone but Rob Manfred. The MLB Commissioner is in hot water after walking back a guarantee that he gave just days ago regarding the 2020 season, and he’s going to be under the microscope for the foreseeable future if things don’t get resolved soon.
Today’s lineup features none of that conversation, however. Andres starts us off with a look into Kyle Higashioka’s importance in a condensed season, followed by Dan Kelly reviewing the Yankees’ late-round drafting methods coming to fruition. Dan Carty continues his OOTP series with the second half of our Final Four matchups, and Josh dives into an incredible conversation he got to have recently with former umpire Dale Scott.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Stay safe out there, and enjoy.
1. What’s the most memorable game you’ve been to live?
2. If you got to throw a bullpen today, what’s the max velocity you think you could reach?
