The Yankees are always in the mix for postseason predictions but now the Mets are just as good and Buster's rankings support that claim. The comparisons between the Yankees and the Mets are solid.

When you hear just how upset Buster is that the Mets at Nationals game wasn't able to take place tonight, it reminds you just how much he loves this game.

Having both today's and tomorrow's games postponed due to an abundance of caution over COVID-19 is a grim reminder that even though things are better the pandemic isn't over.
