This will get worse into early April and start to subside after.  A short spring training in late June and an 81 game season starting in July (so I said June in the poll).  No ASG.

81 games?  I'm okay with that.  No 100 loss season.  See?  There is an upside to all this.

I am becoming more pessimistic everyday. At this point I think MLB should plan an 81 or so game schedule, with divisional and regional teams. Allow rosters to expand with 4 roster spots for pitchers until innings can be built up (do away with the new rules applying to relief pitchers). I'd rather see a realistic plan than some thing thrown together. If you can't get in at least half the schedule it is rather pointless IMO.

If it's an 81 game schedule, fine.  I'd like to see them use it as a referendum on the stupid three batter rule to see that it's garbage so they can rule it out for a 162 game season.

Even then a World Series winner after 81 games just isn't the same.  It'd be nice to have baseball though.

Projection are the virus will be around at least 6 months, I'm now guessing the season will be cancelled.

It's not going to feel like normalcy again until next summer.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred having conference call at noon advising all teams to shut down their facilities. Several GMs are bracing for delay now as late as July

It is crazy that he had to tell teams this.   All those IVY league degrees in management and they couldn’t figure this out in their own.

If the estimates that we can expect somewhere from 40%-70% of the total population to become infected over the next 18 months are accurate, normal will never be the same again. Hopefully, they will develop some drugs to treat the virus while creating and testing a vaccine.

Yes, a therapeutic right now is needed.

Even the President is now saying the worst of the outbreak could last till August. Season is probably over but maybe the virus fools us and stops earlier. Doubt it but viruses do what they want.Fauci said it might be an outlier and end sooner 

 

TRUMP on the timeline on the end of the coronavirus: “People are talking about July, August, something like that. … Could be longer than that."

Fauci has some credibility but I doubt that he really knows when it will end either.  At least right now.

Case in point: I drove into Nashville yesterday afternoon and cruised through lower Broadway where it's honky-tonk after honky-tonk over a 3-4 square block area, just to see if business had been affected.  Nope, it was rockin' just like every Sunday afternoon.  Packed.  They have platforms towed by tractors with bars on them that people hire to get drunk and dance on while driving around downtown.  Packed.  Pedal bars - packed.  Music blaring out of every doorway, and so on...

Crazy and more than a little scary.  Sane and responsible people have no defense against this.

City tells honky tonks to close down but they refuse:

    • The home team is responsible for seeing that the field is in playing condition, if humanly possible.The home team did not do that, therefore the Visitors should in no way be punished. Five innings were played, the home team batted last in the 5th, therefore the Orioles won a shortened 5 inning game.  Any other decision is a violation of the rules of Baseball and the Orioles should not take this without a fight.   Protest the game, and I know that rarely is upheld, but clearly the rules of Baseball were violated.  This society cannot even have a baseball game that is decided fairly.  So sick.
    • Third Bass was an epic 90s rap group...Steppin to the AM and Triple Stage Darkness are legit. Serch being goofy looking hurt the band IMO. However producing Nas’s first album is a career...in any league.   Also scew the Nats and their nonsense ground crew. Next time they’ll just have the sprinklers accidentally malfunction.  
    • Difference being, the home team was ahead in the Wrigley Field game.  To me, the grounds crew is the home team's responsibility.  If the home team is ahead or tied when such an incident occurs, suspend the game.  If the home team is behind - game over.  That is fair.
    • Yes.  Had to make it baseball related.  😉 And that's a sweet sample in that one, two actually. Prime '91 hip hop.
    • Did you intentionally spell Bass wrong so I'd be left scratching my head? Lol!
    • I was also under the impression that the lefty reliever was done. My recollection may not be accurate, but I think I remember that the Nats' manager had come out of the dugout to remove the lefty reliever, Freeman, and summon a new pitcher from the bullpen.  MASN broke for a commercial, and when they came back, the grounds crew was starting their misadventures with the tarp. Did the Nats actually remove Freeman from the game, or did the umps call for the tarp before the manager made his way out to the mound? If the manager told the ump that he was taking Freeman out, I would assume that whoever he had called for from the bullpen was officially in the game when it was halted, even though he never threw  a pitch, and that guy will be required to either finish the inning or face three batters when play resumes on Friday. One piece of good news for the Orioles - if they had resumed the game today after a rain delay and Fry's arm would have cooled down, Hyde almost certainly would have had to replace Fry when the bottom of the sixth started.  Now he will have the option of leaving Fry in the game if he so chooses.
