Randy and Matt join forces to discuss some recent news on the Yankees injury front along with the New York Times opinion piece from Scott Boras regarding the start of the 2020 season. In addition, we talk about The Athletic round table with Ken Rosenthal, Shams Charania, and Pierre Lebrun. The three journalists discuss the potential for a return to sports in the major sports leagues this summer. Finally, the podcast discusses the absurd idea of turning major league baseball into more of a reality tv show.
