If, and this is a big unknown if, IF the games are televised to the HOME RSNs, MASN YES NESN etc., then I'm all for it.
Butts in front of screens means revenue for the league and the teams. Means the players get PAID. It's all FAR from ideal but it is what it is in these strange days.
I get that this seems really strange, because it is. But the reasoning is that getting paid something is better than not getting paid at all. Some revenues from TV are better than no revenues at all. The complications are many, including what happens when a team has multiple players who get the virus and need to be quarantined? That seems pretty likely.
We hear all kinds of stories of pro athletes being bankrupt within a short amount of time after being out of the league. You know that there are MLB players who essentially live paycheck to paycheck, counting on their salary to pay for their $2M house and the house they bought for their mom and house they bought for their best buddy, and the $2500 a month for their Aston Martin, and the attendant for their pet tiger. That's the kind of guy who wants to play in front of no fans in Arizona.
So far the funniest thing in doing this simulation was the guy on our Facbeook Group site who was mad at me because the Yankees kept beating the Orioles and told me I should be saying it the other way around.
Then there was another guy who told me the simulation was unrealistic and that's why they play the game!
