Im guessing no 2020. There is an ebola drug that is said to be working well on the ill patients but they want to ramp it up to a larger scale before they go anywhere else with it. But I think Corona can be dealt with using medication but maybe no vaccine.

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.

 It hasnt left China, its just waiting for everyone to come back outside. I've read they are getting antsy to get their economic engine back up again, but they know all it will do is spread the virus. Im not sure what the answer is for them until some effective drugs come out.

They say a lot of people who recover have permanent lung damage.   Can't walk without getting out of breath.   Good reason to stay inside until treatment comes.

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

They usually fear the virus will mutate into hardier more resistant strain.

It could mutate and reinfect someone who already had it. That's one fear. I don't know that we know if it will be better or worse than a previous version. 

The biggest questions still at large is: is this a herd immunity virus (like chicken pox or some strains of the flu)? And is it seasonal? If it's a herd immunity thing, that would be excellent news. We just don't know yet.

Dr. Fauci, the NIH official who has consistently had good, intelligent information on this thing, ventures a guess of 8 weeks for how long the disruptions to daily life could last.   (But if you read his quote he has a lot of caveats about how hard it is to predict, etc).

All we have to do is look at China to see what will happen in 8 weeks time. They're still quarantining, without much hope for it ending.

Does anyone think that they will pick at date, let's say June 1, and try to create a new schedule that might do things like drop inter league games, only one series home or away for East vs West coast games? Or just stick with the current schedule.

Premier league finally shuts down. I guess with all the players and coaches becoming infected.  England's plan is for everyone to get infected as soon as possible and then deal with the results.

That would make some sense.   But I think it's way premature.   Seeing when they can start and then choosing a date are the first steps.

I believe in 1981 they did not alter the schedule after the strike, they just played what was left of the schedule from August on.

I'd hope that they're getting schedules together for various start dates, such as a schedule if it had to start April 15th, a different schedule if it had to start April 30th, May 15th, etc.  

Pretty sure we're not gonna have a season at this point.

I think they'll take it a couple of weeks at a time as you imply in your first sentence.  I would be surprised if they called off the entire season before August 1st.  They - meaning the owners - will be looking to mitigate the economic impact to whatever degree they can and because of the length of the season, I don't see any downside to them taking their time.

The NHS is largely staffed by Eastern Europeans   Ironic

    • I thought he looked a lot better than his first outing. He threw some good sliders. I like that he’s not afraid to throw his change up. He was better at locating it in this outing, but it doesn’t appear to be a great pitch to me judging by the hitters reaction to it. I think if he locates it well, it’ll be fine, but he can’t get away with even occasional poor location of it like someone like John Means can because I don’t think his change up is deceptive enough. He was better with his fastball location as well, but the velocity was only 89-91. I was surprised by that since I know he improved his velocity last year and from what I remember he was touching 96 MPH in spring training.    Overall, I was encouraged by what I saw last night. Hopefully, his velocity will be a little better if he gets in another game this year.
    • First Hobgood and now Harvey. We are no longer allowed to draft any pitcher, starting with the letter "H" LOL  
    • Who's this "we," homie?   I agree, it's wise not to speculate on what he's done or not done in the offseasons.  But even there isn't a full season next year and they don't have to pay him the full amount, it's still extremely hard to justify him being on the roster.  I'm sure it's hard to put an actual dollar value on at bats and playing time for younger players that need it to develop, but that's essentially what they'd be doing if they kept Davis on the roster for any reason for any length of time. Except it doesn't have to be that way.  They're spending the money no matter what (I'm assuming they'll have a full season with no fans or limited fans next year) so it's high time that they cut him and let more deserving players have a spot, 162 games or not.
    • Yep.   We will never really know exactly how much work Davis put in compared to what other players do.    So, I choose not to speculate about it.   It’s well past the point where we can hope for some Hail Mary offseason turnaround, the guy is far below a replacement level player, and now we have a lot of guys who need to be in the majors taking the at bats that Davis might take.    The only justification for keeping him is the possibility that a full season won’t be played and we won’t have to pay him the full amount he’s owed.    That’s a complex decision that I can’t comment on very intelligently.    
    • Why not Bannon? He should be up by now anyway.
    • This is where I'm at. My first wish is for Trey to live and love and happy life that is cancer free. Obviously second to this is his return to his previous form as a baseball player, but there is an inherent risk that won't happen. AS Moose pointed out, many athletes have returned to form and we can hope and pray that he does, but more importantly, that Trey will be well long term.
