I find this kind of odd. Take Mookie - in the event that there's no season, he would both a) not be paid and b) become a free agent in the upcoming offseason. So not only does he make no money, he ages one more year and potentially gets less in free agency than he might have if he had played this season.
That's two downsides for the player. Sure the team gets screwed on losing the players in the trade, but how is it that the MLBPA agreed to this? Unless I'm missing something.
A rebuilding team like the O's also loses a year of development AND control for its prospects. It's bad all around I guess.
I went to the store yesterday and it was a different, more serious vibe, then it was last week.
There was this one guy that did manage to touch his face at least 30 times that I noticed. Not sure if it was a physiological and psychological compulsion that was causing it but he needs to stay home and let his wife? shop by herself.
Yesterday I went to Tractor Supply to get chicken feed, and the the grocery store. About half the folks in Tractor Supply were wearing masks (me included). At the grocery store it was more like 5%. More were wearing gloves, which aren't as effective. Only one of five or six cashiers were wearing anything protective. On the way I saw a group of ~20 motorcyclists parked on the side of the road talking, standing within arms length of one another, wearing no obvious protection.
I work for the DoD and we now have more-or-less mandatory masks for those going on station to do limited operations. If you can't maintain six feet, but we're "strongly encouraged" in all cases, which in military speak means "you better do it, even if we can't technically order you to."
Why distinguish their salaries from everyone else’s on the team? They would all be saved in that situation. And I hope that doesn’t happen. I won’t feel the slightest bit good about the O’s not having to pay Davis and Cobb if that means there’s no baseball this year.
What’s your point? Queen played more of a OLB/DE role in college and the same with Braun. Both are expected to move to MLB at the NFL level.
Sure a blind squirrel will occasionally find a nut! Most 3rd and 4th round picks are filler. Mosley was a good player and drafted by the Ravens late in the 1st. What the Ravens need is their next great MLB. That’s the guy I’m after!
