It is remarkable how not seriously the older generation is taking this in Florida.  My father(82) just now got in his truck to drive to the part store.

My Mom in Maryland also sees it as an  inconvenience. Maybe because lived through the end of World War 2, polio, a few other pandemics and other things. 

 

Interesting from a NYC doc on front line. Sarilumab is a rheumatoid arthritis drug. But just one persons ideas ,need many more drug trials on all these treatments. 

10th Our standard protocol right now is azithro/hydroxychloroquine/zinc but I have little faith in efficacy. For the patients I really worried about (fast O2 requirement rise, high inflammatory markers) I gave tocilizumab off label. Clinical trial of sarilumab starting this week.

No matter what the topic there will be some small subset of the population who will stridently, doggedly advocate for a solution that is 180 degrees out from the consensus, and will be amazed and angrily bitter that their evidence that the sky is green is not being taken seriously.  See: @JTrea81

It took Italy 30 days to get to 100k after the first 500 were confirmed.  It took the U.S. 18 days to get to 150k+.

The total US population is more than five times greater than Italy.

Here's a much larger picture so anyone can check. No cases in Franklin County or Washington County, MD. Maybe a couple in Adams County. So I'm still fairly safe. Only been out for groceries beer and tobacco. Just saying...

Tried to order some (TO DIE FOR) Ham and bean soup from a local restaurant yesterday. Got a busy signal for 10 minutes and gave up. Have part of the stuff I need to make my own but the grocery store has ZERO dried beans! A few bags of chick peas and black eyed peas. NOTHING else.

Hang in there. In 1918 they had a flu pandemic and a World War.  Science and medicine are way more advanced. 95% of the people have mild cases. Don't think they have tested enough and that the death rate is not accurate but 95% or more have mild symptoms. Also fever rates are going down so maybe we can bend the curve below the 100,000 somewhat or greatly.  Watch other things besides the news. 

[Separately – not discussed in press conference – article in NYT: reductions in fevers around country suggests social distancing is diminishing national incidence of disease https://nytimes.com/2020/03/30/health/coronavirus-restrictions-fevers.html encouraging to see more signs social distancing perhaps making a difference. 8/x]

 

 

 

Chart :

 

646,225
Currently Infected Patients
612,606 (95%)
in Mild Condition
33,619 (5%)

A nice story for a change. In Baltimore they have people volunteering to work with seniors. Call them if they need anything and direct them to the right resource.

    • If this is really what that provision says, I don't see how "economic feasibility" does not include the costs of paying the players.  
    • I don't like the idea of just deciding not to take a pitcher.  Maybe it is because they rank some of the underslot guys higher, but if the strategy is just not take a pitcher generally I think it's unwise. 
    • I can't believe you didn't simulate sitting Means in the simulated spring training when he complained of simulated tightness in his forearm.  Plus, the simulated pitching overall has been abysmal.  
    • You are oversimplifying and you are under the false assumption that owners can unilaterally shorten the season. The owners don't get to decide whether it is cheaper to not play than to play. They have to open the books and prove to the players that they would lose more money not playing than by playing without fans. Only then can the owners cancel the season. Presumably, if the owners were to open the books and convince the players that they would lose more money playing without fans than they would in canceling the season, thereby permitting them the option of canceling the season, players might be interested in sacrificing additional money to have a season, but the owners have not yet done that. The players and owners have a mutual obligation to start the season as soon as possible and to play as many games as possible. That obligation is not discharged by the owners losing money for the season, it is only discharged by the owners proving they would lose more money playing without fans than they would lose if they didn't play at all. The owners likely WOULD lose less money with a shorter season (say 40 games vs. 82) and an expanded playoffs, but that would also violate the March agreement, just as trying to renegotiate salary without proving playing without fans is more fiscally damaging than not playing violates the March agreement.
    • Kjerstad at 2 would be a big disappointment to me, under-slot strategy or not. If not Tork, Martin or even Lacy, I'll just shake my head and wait to see who else we get.
    • it was either that or the rundown bus. Damn I love watching this movie. Hey skipper, my contract says I do have to practice, what do you think of that. Tosses it on the ground and pisses on it. I wonder how many managers would love to do that in real life, when a crybaby complains. LOL
    • Well, I would say that the issue is not closed assuming everything you say is absolutely true. Based upon what you wrote, $170 mil the players get no matter what.  That's roughly $5.7 mil per team.  If there is no season, that money gets divided up, I guess between the players and that's it.  That's not really much per player considering what they make. The players lose huge money in that scenario.  They lose big the fewer games that get played from their prorating agreement.  And the owners get to decide when to start play and how many games get played. So, if the owners decide that it is cheaper to not play than play the games, the players lose big time. Every game the owners shorten the season the players lose big time. It seems clear that the possibility of playing the season without fans could be cost prohibitive and that was contemplated. So, based upon your facts, the players could stick it to the owners and cut their own noses off in the process.  Or, negotiate something better for both sides. I am sorry but the players are being stupid so far.  Of course, this is the game within the game, but the owners still hold all the cards in my opinion.
