This will get worse into early April and start to subside after.  A short spring training in late June and an 81 game season starting in July (so I said June in the poll).  No ASG.

81 games?  I'm okay with that.  No 100 loss season.  See?  There is an upside to all this.

I am becoming more pessimistic everyday. At this point I think MLB should plan an 81 or so game schedule, with divisional and regional teams. Allow rosters to expand with 4 roster spots for pitchers until innings can be built up (do away with the new rules applying to relief pitchers). I'd rather see a realistic plan than some thing thrown together. If you can't get in at least half the schedule it is rather pointless IMO.

If it's an 81 game schedule, fine.  I'd like to see them use it as a referendum on the stupid three batter rule to see that it's garbage so they can rule it out for a 162 game season.

Even then a World Series winner after 81 games just isn't the same.  It'd be nice to have baseball though.

Projection are the virus will be around at least 6 months, I'm now guessing the season will be cancelled.

It's not going to feel like normalcy again until next summer.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred having conference call at noon advising all teams to shut down their facilities. Several GMs are bracing for delay now as late as July

It is crazy that he had to tell teams this.   All those IVY league degrees in management and they couldn’t figure this out in their own.

If the estimates that we can expect somewhere from 40%-70% of the total population to become infected over the next 18 months are accurate, normal will never be the same again. Hopefully, they will develop some drugs to treat the virus while creating and testing a vaccine.

Yes, a therapeutic right now is needed.

Even the President is now saying the worst of the outbreak could last till August. Season is probably over but maybe the virus fools us and stops earlier. Doubt it but viruses do what they want.Fauci said it might be an outlier and end sooner 

 

TRUMP on the timeline on the end of the coronavirus: “People are talking about July, August, something like that. … Could be longer than that."

Fauci has some credibility but I doubt that he really knows when it will end either.  At least right now.

Case in point: I drove into Nashville yesterday afternoon and cruised through lower Broadway where it's honky-tonk after honky-tonk over a 3-4 square block area, just to see if business had been affected.  Nope, it was rockin' just like every Sunday afternoon.  Packed.  They have platforms towed by tractors with bars on them that people hire to get drunk and dance on while driving around downtown.  Packed.  Pedal bars - packed.  Music blaring out of every doorway, and so on...

Crazy and more than a little scary.  Sane and responsible people have no defense against this.

City tells honky tonks to close down but they refuse:

    • Well, my preseason win prediction was too low, but my midseason prediction of the final record was on target. 
    • Playoffs are set.   Best of 3 series with all the games at the higher seed.   AL (Tue/Wed/Thu-if-necessary) #1 Tampa Bay Rays vs #8 Toronto Blue Jays #2 Oakland A's vs #7 Chicago White Sox #3 Minnesota Twins vs #6 Houston Astros #4 Cleveland Indians vs #5 New York Yankees (should be Cole vs Bieber in G1)   NL (Wed/Thu/Fri-if-necessary) #1 LA Dodgers vs #8 Milwaukee Brewers #2 Atlanta Braves vs #7 Cincinnati Reds #3 Chicago Cubs vs #6 Miami Marlins #4 San Diego Padres vs #5 St Louis Cardinals
    • Now that we have a higher pick than the Nationals, it wouldn't shock me at all to see them instigate a one time lottery.
    • A TOR to me is one of the top 60 pitchers in baseball.  Some teams may have more than two of these while some have none. An ACE would be the top twenty of those 60 pitchers IMO.
    • No one picked 25 wins exactly. esmd picked 24, he was the closest.
    • The Giants need to win to make the playoffs.  They trailed by a run in the bottom of the 9th with two outs and no one on. A guy named Slater with a .418 OBP was up.   The Giants' best hitter, Mike Yastrzemski, was on deck.   Slater was called out on strikes on a ball that was clearly not a strike.   It ended the game, and the Giants' season, and sent the Brewers to the playoffs.   The White Sox trailed 10-8 with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th.   If they lost the game they would fall to the 7 seed.   If they won the game, and the Twins lost, they would win the division and be the #3 seed.   At the time, Cincinnati had scored 3 in the top of the 10th at Minnesota so a Twin loss was likely. White Sox got a man on so the tie run was at the plate.   Nomar Mazara.   He was called out on a ball that was probably not a strike, to end the game.   To give the Twins the division title and knock Chicago from possibly being a 3 seed to being the 7 seed.   Critical, questionable ball strike calls on the last pitch of the last game for two different teams made a huge difference in who gets in the postseason and who gets what seed.
