The Yankees and Twins won’t play on Sunday, which was going to be pretty clearly the case since Friday morning, when the National Weather Service released its first hurricane watch for the New York area in 10 years.

On Saturday morning, when Hurricane Henri changed from tropical storm status (it has since been demoted to a tropical storm) and headed north, it was inevitable that there would be no baseball in the Bronx on Sunday. afternoon.

So why didn’t they go ahead and play a double show on Saturday afternoon? It’s not like the Twins had to push the storm out of town, because they won’t play again until Tuesday in Boston. The Yankees have a road trip to do, as they play in Atlanta on Monday, but Aaron Boone said Travel plans from New York remain a Sunday night flight to Georgia, an interesting bet that the storm will then have detonated.

‘Cause the Yankees and Twins didn’t just play a double soak On Saturday, the Twins are due to return to New York on September 13, a day off in the middle of a homestand to them – something that doesn’t happen often, and one that players enjoy during a long season where most of the “off” days involve travel. Oh, and the next day the Twins have a double day-night schedule on September 14 to make up for a June postponement against Cleveland.

It’s silly and unnecessary, but not even the dumbest New York weather-related scheduling problem as the storm approaches. That honor goes to Hizzoner, the illustrious stupid Bill de Blasio, who took “against all odds” a bit too literally with the We love NYC concert saturday night, a doofus beponcho telling a crowd in Central Park to hang out somewhere inside (as if the concert really celebrated the end of the pandemic, which is in fact raging).

The mayor saw a thunderstorm in an open field and thought they might be able to move on (after getting everyone out and back to Central Park) around 10:15 a.m.. During the 10 a.m. hour, Central Park received 1.69 inches of rain, which would be a good punctuation mark over de Blasio’s wacky eight years as the head of America’s largest city, except that he still has four and a half months left. an even bigger bozo.

How can he surpass himself? In New York, we don’t ask. We just live it. So was the other local baseball team, which on Aug. 6 tweeted its former reliever Jerry Blevins, “If that’s not the lowest for the Mets, I don’t know what it is.”

The Mets won four games in the next two weeks, are 5-14 in August and 13-22 since the all-star break, which transformed what was a five-game National League lead. Is in June. in a seven-game deficit against Atlanta and three games under .500 for the season.

Remember that not only can you still continue to dig after reaching the bottom, but sometimes you may encounter molten magma.

Which then?

Big title: “Viking players should not play against the Colts”

It really would have been something, but it turned out that a lot of Vikings players played against the Colts. And of course, they lost the exhibition game, 12-10, but let’s say the Vikings defied expectations, just by playing.
