The 2020 Yankees season has been happening everywhere, so why would something as simple as “putting together a team of cabs to hang out in the bubble for the playoffs” be any different?

This is certainly a big demand.Based on the 2020 rules, each postseason team should have an isolated set of backups, all of which must live the same restricted lives as MLB players, probably without any glory

According to Brian Cashman, the team crossed out on several occasions asking players to join this team for as long as the October race lasted We had fun speculating on who might have taken the plunge in the overall effort, disappointing the organization, but after a glimpse on Saturday’s early team mechanics, it looks like we may have guessed the opposite

Yes, Miguel Andujar and Mike Ford seem to have picked, by far the most experienced (and once essential) Yankees in the pool We were concerned that after Andujar’s agent comments last week about his demotion, he bristled at the idea and again gave up his position in the organization But no! He took on the task, although we cannot report his enthusiasm for it

Other veteran attendances include Matt Duffy (who never appeared in the Bronx in 2020, against all odds), Thairo Estrada, wide receiver Rob Brantly and Jordy Mercer, whom you may recall from his cameo from mid-season instead of Gleyber Torres

Estevan Florial doesn’t seem like a part of it, but you can’t read too far into that – her cap, for this particular postseason, would have been like a pinch runner

After the player pool hits 60 during the regular season, this taxi squad can only consist of a maximum of 12 men, experiencing a somewhat depressing version of the bubble and following the Yankees on their journey. post-season
