The Yankees Are About To Play Either The Phillies, Orioles Or No one?
The New York Yankees were supposed to be playing game two of a four game home and home series against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight but thanks to COVID-19 tonight's game is postponed. There are now at least 17 members of the Miami Marlins who just played the Phillies who have tested positive for the coronavirus. So the league is being cautious and not playing in Philly again tonight. Which means there's a lot of questions about who, where and if the Yankees will be playing again any time soon.
So let's see if we can make sense of what's about to happen here. This is the only time this season the Yankees and Phillies were scheduled to face off. So one theory is that the Yankees would now host the Phillies in a pair of double-headers. Another is they would try to fit three games the next two days and make up the other at another time... if at all. BUT WAIT there's yet another potential match up this week according to the Athletics Ken Rosenthal.
Yup Yankees could be heading to Baltimore to play the Orioles. BUT WAIT AGAIN! It get's even weirder.
There's also a chance the 60 game season doesn't really have to be a 60 game season according to NY Post's Joel Sherman.
In case you haven't figured it out yet, I have no idea who or when or even IF the Yankees will play again.
