It is NOT corona free. 7,447 confirmed cases and 150 deaths as of 3/31. But, thanks for the disinformation.

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. 

Yeah and were born into the great depression. My mom here meal 6 days a week growing up was a baked potato.  Hitler demanded everyone turn in their butter churns so as to not waste milk on butter but their neighbor gave them an old one to turn in so they could at least have butter on it.  But I think we take for granted how good we have it these days. 

But I doubt that is the reason. Probably more likely their children are all in middle age and are doing well and they don't need them to take care of grandchildren anymore.  They have had a good life and are content.

No real suprise. Made no sense to go to almost zero cases in two months. The HUMINT and SIGINT  on this was known for months.

It really does get to the point where some know they've come full circle.

This was expected.

Breaking: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced a 30-day stay-at-home order for the state Wednesday that tells nearly 21 million residents to stay indoors unless they are pursuing “essential services or activities.”

So no baseball down here until May.  If then.

Half a week earlier than I expected.

These stay at home orders need a plan. If you just say stay at home 30 days and then in 30 days stay home another 30 days.  It isn't solving anything.  If they are using that time to get more equipment and ramping up hospitals and getting more testing, and getting out masks to everyone in the community that makes sense.  But I don't hear about any plans.  If your plan is to keep everyone on semi-lockdown for 2 years that isn't going to work. I would like to hear someone tell me their plans.

    • The comp is more to do with them having similar stances, slightly pull heavy swings, and profile than production. I googled Mookie Betts as a prospect and his scouting grades: Hit: 65 | Power: 45 | Run: 60 | Arm: 45 | Field: 55 https://www.mlb.com/news/mookie-betts-leads-bostons-updated-top-20-list/c-85946126 Here is Martin's scouting grades from the same place: HIT: 65 POWER: 50 RUN: 55 ARM: 50 FIELD: 55 https://www.mlb.com/prospects/draft/austin-martin-668885 Pretty similar profiles. Of course 95% of players with those scouting grades don't produce like Mookie Betts will.
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Orioles defeated the Indians 5-4.  Dick Hall was credited with the win for his 1/3 of an inning of work in relief of Jim Palmer: Hall got Ray Fosse to pop out to second to end the 7th inning.  The Birds scored three runs in the bottom of the 7th which led to Hall's victory. Palmer hit his first homerun of the season leading off the third inning.  Don Buford went 1 for 3 with 2 RBI as well. For the record, Pete Richert recorded the save for the Orioles. BOX SCORE
    • Just to clarify, he’s talking specifically about pitchers that have justified being picked.
    • No, but the salary cap makes things very wonky in the NBA and NHL. While the NFLs system really screws over the players. The only way I see the MLBPA giving into a salary cap is if they cut the years of control right in half.  Which would basically change strategy away from developing home grown talent. 
    • I'm over the moon if Tork is available at 2. I get the defensive and athletic upside is limited, but that is such a special bat. .285 and 30 HR annually? Absolutely. Realistically, I wouldn't be upset with either Martin or Lacy at 2. Martin might not project the upside as a traditional 1-2, but there is something to be said for his tools across the board. Pitchers this high make me nervous as well, but a Rodriguez-Lacy-Hall top of the rotation sounds formidable, health permitting. 
    • So, former GM Jim Bowden is now writing for the Atlantic.  According to his research, there were 42 players taken among the 80 players selected in the first five picks of the 16 MLB drafts between 2000 and 2015 and only five of the 42 have justified the selection - Verlander, Price, Strausburg, Cole and Bauer.  Two of those pitchers, Verlander and Strausburg, were "no-brainer" decisions.  It is a hit rate far below WC's opening post.
    • Just keep chucking talent into the firebox and hope that coaching, video, personality tests, wearable tech, organizational philosophy, and the mysteries of the universe  squirt out some rare nuggets at a reasonable pace.
