Seems like things in China are STARTING to get back to business as usual after a month or two.   But of course they did some draconian measures of containment that will not happen here. 

They also took some reasonable measures of containment that won't happen here.

NCAA just cancelled the NCAA basketball tournament and all other winter/spring sports championships/tournaments including the College World Series.

So pretty much every top level pro and college sport in the US has shut down for now.

Looking at the numbers and how it is spreading I can’t see baseball happening this year.

It depends on whether the trend reverses, especially once the weather warms up.  I really don’t think we know what the situation will look like in mid-May.    But I sure wouldn’t bet on seeing any April baseball.

Looking at the 10-week time-span for China, I would say May 21, just after Mother's Day.  That is 70 days from today's announcement.  That would be about a 130 or so game season.

I think the US health system will ramp up a lot faster than China, at the same I think they will wait for transmission rates to drop which will be when the thermometer starts hitting 78-80 regularly.

I think you could see games start in the southern U.S. around May 15.

Were not testing anyone. In Mid May the system will collapse from the number of sick. Make sure you have plenty of food.  I wish the outlook wasn’t so bad.  But it is.

Well, I guess the lack of baseball will be the least of my worries.     Thanks for cheering me up.

Question about the poll and the last option: if the 2020 season doesn't start in 2020 is it really the 2020 season?

If there is one less year on Davis's contract afterwards, it's a season.

Usually these viruses mutate into a less dangerous strain. We'll see.

1918 flu was not that deadly in the first wave Was very deadly when it came back in the fall.But every virus does its thing.At best a guess whether it dissipates in the warmer months Does it come back? Do we contain enough to go back to a semblance of normal soon?

It's taken China about 4 months with draconian measures to get the epidemic to subside. Given the US's poor initial response probably longer than that. July at the earliest.

That Spanish Flu is what I keep thinking about. A pandemic can get away from doctors and governments very fast. Of course doctors know a lot more today than they did in 1918-19, public officials to a lesser extent... And all the returning troops from WWI also massively helped to spread it. I hope I'm wrong but I voted no season at all.

There's only so much you can do to prepare without playing games. I don't think owners or the MLBPA would want the players to start the real season cold.  Figure another three weeks minimum for spring training v2.0.
