"M.L.B. postponed the game because three Yankees pitchers — Nestor Cortes Jr., Jonathan Loaisiga and Wandy Peralta, each of whom is vaccinated — had tested positive for the coronavirus. General Manager Brian Cashman said three other players had tested positive through multiple rapid tests, and that the team expected those players’ laboratory test results to also come back positive.


The Yankees have reached the 85 percent vaccination rate M.L.B. requires to operate under relaxed Covid protocols, but Cashman said the team had again experienced breakthrough cases, two months after an outbreak of nine cases, mostly within the coaching staff."

The Olympics are going to be a nightmare.

Unless team members associate only with one another, the team's vaccination percentage doesn't guarantee any team member protection against infection. For that to happen, the general population must achieve herd immunity levels of vaccination.



It is what it is.

Too many vaccinated Yankees are testing positive. This is weird. These are either false positives or they magically got bad batches.

I'm not so sure. The Delta seems to be infecting vaccinated people, however the symptoms are mild or non existent. The players are tested regularly, so it isn't that surprising that asymptomatic cases are being caught that aren't in the general population.

The real cause for concern is that if Delta is running relatively symptom free through the vaccinated it is going to be really bad when those people start mingling with the non vaccinated.

Given the number of young people getting it, the start of the school year could lead to disaster.

Call me skeptical that all of these players REALLY were vaccinated. How is this validated? If it's the 'honor' system, or 'provide proof from a doctor', I think there is a real chance players 'fudged' their answers.

But if none need hospitalization, then I will believe it. The main purposes of vaccines are 1) to prevent someone getting the disease 2) when they DO get it, their severity is much lower 3) reducing their transmission to others when they DO get the disease.

They are still looking for evidence to support #3 and quantify the effect.
