  1. 2 days to get test results. How many days before those that have already contracted it have positive outcomes? You have to think at the moment they need to operate as if the entire team has it. I think it's a few more days before we find out how bad it actually spread thru that clubhouse. Miami isn't playing for a few days, at least.
  2. They scouted a lot of these obscure North Eastern spots last year if I recall correctly. Isn't that how they found Welk and others? Also, I remember last year they went college bat heavy in the draft also. Then turned around and got a lot of pitchers in the International (J8 campaign, or whatever they marketed it as). Have to wonder if it'll be the same strategy this year.
  3. They're trying to encourage more cash being injected into the local economies also. That's more takeout meals from restaurants, more diy project supplies from local stores, more gardening supplies from the local gardening shops, etc.
  4. 3, 2, 1. By Tuesday I bet that all changes. It would happen by morning if they didn't have to give people some notice to make it hurt a little less
  5. 8 weeks is huge. 2 weeks at banning 250+ sent people into chaos. CDC went bolder than they have this whole time and just limited crowds to less than 50 for 8 (8!) weeks. Some of us knew it was going to get to this but the vast majority didn't. It's officially out there now.
  6. He's mid-30s and in good health. They have an 8 month old tho. He says the fatigue is real. He gets exhausted and wants to sleep after eating, washing a dish, taking out the trash. Been useless the last couple days. Fever, chills, headache, and only mild sensations in the lungs so far which is good. Her symptoms have just started and they're hoping his wanes by the time hers kicks in so he can be helpful. Nephew is fine. So far. Please everyone take care of yourselves. Be safe and smart.
  7. So my brother and my sister-in-law caught it. He tried to get tested for it Thursday and they told him they had no tests and to go home and isolate. He suspects he got it from one of the many places he ate lunch in Dupont Circle over the last week or so. No known contact otherwise and doesn't use mass transit. Careful out there folks.
  8. Loogie Hocking. Sunflower seed spitting. Water bottle squirting. Bathroom sharing. Locker proximity. The list goes on. "No high fives" is a little short-sighted. How often do you touch your face out of habit? I've noticed over a hundred times a day for me. Even knowing I shouldn't I catch myself doing it all day.
  9. Y'know, MLB / American Sports TV outlets or even better... Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, or Disney+ should seek out a TV contract with the NPB. It could be an avenue into the younger generation getting excited about baseball. Japanese culture is huge in the states and might garner some younger viewership. Korea too, sign them up also! With how immensely popular baseball is in those countries I'm sure they'd get a lot of views and interest. Get some K-pop bands on the promo tour, bring the Japanese mascots along. 🔥 🔥 The Premier League is huge here. Why not Japanese baseball? Not to mention I'd love to check it out and would LOVE watching AJ be a superstar. Jonesy is loving every second of it.
  10. Not the same type of cheating but, what were the penalties the Braves took a couple years ago? Executives suspended and international slots removed?
  11. I would doubt it as that would never be their philosophy, so I'm sure they wouldn't even think to mention it unless someone outright asked directly. "Lean on your best pitch" is their mindset.
  12. Oh. Like their current free game of the week thing they do? That's cool. I was wishful thinking some mega deal where all games would be available. Maybe one day!
  13. Has there been talk about that being a thing? I would love that.
  14. And just to elaborate a little further, I grew up in Arlington VA, lived in Charlottesville for 12 years (Go Hoos! Off topic? Who cares!) and now live in North Carolina. I travel to Maryland a couple times a year for work. It doesn't matter where I go; Baltimore (Lexington, Fells, Little Italy), Cockeysville, Havre de Grace, Annapolis, Frederick, Cantlers (Every. Time.) I manage to find myself in conversation about the Os. Orioles fans are skeptical of me too especially when I tell them where I grew up and live. I get quizzed all the time on; last world series win? How many world series? Can you name the years? Name our Hall of famers? Cal's streak number? Hell, last year I had someone quiz me on 0-21. I'd bet, if I mentioned OPS to 80% of the people I had Os conversations with, they likely blink at me blank-faced. One thing all of that makes me realize though, the blood of the locals bleeds black and orange very very strongly. Again, glad they are engaging the fan base in new ways
