In 53 percent of his plate appearances this year, Dom faced the shift. The Handbook reports, "Those shifts caused him to lose 11 hits and gain two for a net loss of 9 hits... If we imagine a world without shifts and add back his net loss of 9 hits, his batting average would be raised 51 points to .367. That puts him above D.J. LeMahieu" whose .364 led the majors.

Get ready for more shifts next year, Dom.

Another dinger for Dom. He's up to five.

Yo, Yoenis? Are you paying attention?

Dom doubled, homered and drove in three last night as the DH.

Answer to question: probably not.

Joel Sherman describing the scene last night at Citifield.

What is coming in 2020 has no precedent, no manual, no wiseman who has seen this all and can pass along knowledge. Rick Porcello has pitched more than 2,000 major league innings and knows what it is supposed to sound like when heading to the bullpen to prepare for a start. But Saturday night, nothing and he very definitely noticed the sound of silence. Then on the way to the dugout, teammates sitting under the canopy erected behind the home dugout gave him a warm applause and Dom Smith broke out with, “Let’s go Mets.”

“It was definitely different,” Porcello said...

It could have been any other Yankees-Mets pregame with Brian Cashman chatting with his Mets counterpart, Brodie Van Wagenen, and lieutenant Omar Minaya. Just all three were wearing masks, keeping a social distance and the Mets officials were in the crowd behind home plate surrounded by hundreds of cardboard cutouts of fans...

Yet there was baseball, bless it, and, as Porcello said, “I was just so happy to be out there wearing a uniform.” The Yankees won 9-3 as Gio Urshela played a masterful game at third, Mike Tauchman brought a night full of polished at-bats, Clint Frazier walloped a two-run homer and the Mets authored an unsightly defensive effort. When it was over the Yankees celebrated with simulated high fives.

If Marisnick plays center on a regular basis Nimmo plays left on a regular basis and Dominic sits on the bench, bat in hand.
