Players not exactly social distancing in the dugout

Recommended Posts

I was a little surprised to see most of the players just acting as though there’s nothing happening.    Obviously they are in close quarters, but really I only saw a couple of the coaches wearing masks and players with their arms on the railing right next to each other just talking away.    Among the 30 teams, I think we are going to see some situations where 6-10 guys on a team all test positive at the same time.    That will be interesting.

Yes, I noticed that too.  I can understand in the field of play wearing a mask could intefere with their performance.  But not much excuse in the dugout

I certainly understand there’s a pandemic going on, but are we going to run from it forever? How can you keep a 6 feet distance in a dugout?

That's why they've installed those tents to create dugout annexes in the first few rows of the stands.

Marlins had 3 or 4 positives today, according to rumors.

Including Urena, today’s starter, who they had to scratch two hours before the game.

Yeah, I imagine every team will be getting reminders about it. I understand the high fives and stuff, but space in the dugout with the auxiliary dugout should be maintained. They can't have 5-10 players on a team testing positive at the same time.

Any word on how often these guys are getting tested? I assume they aren't going to CVS and waiting 6-10 days.

Every other day.  Not sure if you get tested more often if you test positive.

Hyde and his coaches shared fist bumps in the dugout after Saturday's win to celebrate.  Its not that easy to break old habits.

Yeah, social distancing is very difficult to do outside of those social circumstances where it was already built in....like working in an office situation. I suspect we are going to see more outbreaks. The playoffs could get interesting. Who wins might be the team that can field the most non-taxi squad players the longest.

No we are going to take preventitive measures until there is a vaccine, and there are no fans, so every stadium has several thousand seats worth of social distancing space.

According to our youth baseball guidelines, players are supposed to sit six feet apart and wear masks when they are not on the field of play, coaches wear masks at all times. Seems like you would want to be at least as cautious with professional ballplayers.

it comes down to whether the players and coaches are serious about wanting to complete this season.   I think this experiment can work, but only if players and coaches remember and follow the social distancing guidelines.  Acting like everything is normal is how outbreaks occur.

I've surfed a ton of games on mlb.tv the last two days, and the lack of strict social distancing, masks, etc. is pretty much universal - and  I don't think anyone should be very surprised.  It's just unconscious reverting back to normal behavior and by the time the players re-train themselves to the new normal, whatever is going to happen will already have been decided.

Yeah a bunch of teams are going to lose several players at a time.  Interesting indeed to see how MLB spins that one.  Will this season end in a pennant race or a forced march to the convalescent home?  Or worse if the baseball gods turn particularly sour.

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
