 It's good to have a decent endowment.

My ex used to say that to me all the time.

No mound visits?

So no tagging either? The catcher sits in the stands? And when 25 to how many players shower what happens? Some of the players will be coming from hot spots.I guess money is the main point of it.Seems like if you play in Arizona that July might be a better idea.Models by then show very few cases.

It is certainly about the $$$, the union wants players to be paid and owners want some tv revenue. They (MLB) will claim it is an attempt to get back to normalcy, but there would be little normal about it. Without fans it will be more like a scrimmage or sim game IMO. Honestly, if I was a vet player, sacked away millions (like Chris Davis), I'd hang up my spikes rather than go through this mirage ball in the desert.

I've read yesterday that they are also seeing heart damage in patients.  At this point they don't know if the virus is doing the damage or if it is related to the stress that the illness puts the patient under.

The flu has also been shown to make the heart weaker, I imagine this works in a similar fashion.

Yes,that is one of the reasons we will never get a true count of deaths from the virus  in any country. EMS here when someone dies in their home are putting down cardiac arrest. They don't have time to test them for obvious reasons. 

But the lung damage for people who survive seems to be also something that may linger with them for life,including in the young who have to be incubated . Preliminary studies show that they may have greater risks from even the normal flu in the future.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
