    Seems like judge might be able to go opening day. Stanton could be the dh, and Paxton looks to be in the best out of the 3. Amazing how much time these guys would of missed if it was a full season. Itd like the Yankees need 2 rosters.
    Seeing all these guys healthy and in the lineup everyday for 2 or 3 months will be a real pleasure for me. Almost kind of like a bucket list wish. A real dream come true.

    Looks like Tanaka is healthy and ready to roll.

    So why was Tanaka pitching to Stanton without a screen?

    The hell is the matter with this team, anyway?

    The screen wouldn’t have saved him because the ball was hit too hard.

    Yeah, that’s not the way a BP screen works.

    I’ll wait to learn more as to why he wasn’t pitching behind a screen, or why he was even serving up live BP to Stanton anyway. But there’s a reason they use screens. And that’s pretty much it.

    ETA: it was a simulated game.

    Good grief this team.

    You don't think every MLB team is doing simulated games?

    Based on the preliminary report, the Yankees sure sound like that they dodged a bullet with this.

    These guys have been taking hacks for four freakin months. Put the screen back on the field for these simulated games.

    Ya think. It still might not have prevented what happened today, but they should at least have it there as an added safety measure even if your pitchers are not comfortable pitching with it during simulated games.

    Yeah, I was watching MLB Network and they showed look-ins of several sim games around the league and I didn't see a screen in any of them.

    Also, if you see the YES "Summer Camp" show, after Tanaka got clocked, they put up a screen for Jordan Montgomery when he took over for Masahiro. Kind of like closing the barn door after the horse got out.
    I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd, when they said "sit down" I stood up.

    I observed Montgomery moving that screen about 3-4 times.

    Totally unrelated, but it looks like Montgomery's fastball had lots of life for the few pitches I saw him throw. I'm really hoping he is an effective starter in 2020, an unexpectedly nice surprise and a good storyline.

    Agree. This was a fan comment on the liner that I support. If the batters wear a helmet why not have the pitchers wear a helmet, too. I think they should try it. (Tanaka didn't stand a chance)
