As we have said many times, the 2020 MLB season won’t be a marathon. It will be a sprint race, with only 60 games as opposed to the usual 162. The margin for error will be, evidently, diminished, and any cold streak could lead to trouble for those teams looking to make the playoffs, like the New York Yankees.
However, manager Aaron Boone doesn’t want his players to feel that they need to win every game. Yes, people have said that the Yankees should feel more pressure now that the schedule is shorter, but Boone prefers that his players keep approaching the calendar one day at a time.
