Marlins ( and now Phillies) season(s) on pause, O's to host Yankees on Wednesday and Thursday

Recommended Posts

If the season is going to happen, players need to take the social distancing more seriously during the game and avoid going out at all other times.

It is a big ask for guys in their 20s and 30s even if they are well paid, but it is going to take close to 100 percent cooperation to complete the season.

This could be the beginning of the end for the season. I don't see how the Marlins can field a team. Unless their secondary camp team can swap in completely, I don't see how they can play in the next few days until they pinpoint who didn't catch it yesterday.

I think it's much more the latter than the former

That's gotta be it for the season too, right?  Marlins played Phillies, who are all now very much at risk.  Marlins were in the clubhouse that the Yankees are coming to tonight, so that game will probably be postponed.  I wanted baseball so so bad and was so happy about the weekend results, but this is reality.

They should just be threatened with forfeiting all their games and having .000 batting averages and 9.00 ERAs tacked onto their career stats.  That'll look good on them the next time their precious arbitration rolls around.

That couldn't ever happen but that's what I'd do.  Rule with an iron fist.

This is... very bad from an MLB perspective right now. I know that the mods don't wan't COVID talk... but this clearly affects baseball, and the way that teams are behaving in the dugouts (which is likely extending into their chartered flights) means that this will probably keep happening and the season is officially in jeopardy because of it.

Wow, the Marlins could look like a minor league team for a while.  If baseball can't social distance enough, imagine the problems the NFL is going to have. 

I hope the season can continue.  For healthy young men in their 20's and 30's, the risk is minimal.  Its obvious, that playing the season without fans was the right decision.  Probably would have worked better if MLB played in a bubble like the NBA instead of travelling all over the country.

    • Holt and Akin were tonight's guests. Roch before the interview segments on crowded OF I did notice the tone of certainty in his banter about Santander going at trade deadline. Holt describing Valdez said it is as simple as he "does what he's good at a bunch", which reminded me of Earl's book and his observation almost nobody is good at everything.   I think I heard him ruling out 6-man rotation when he got that question, saying the extra rest too disruptive to pitcher's rhythms.  I am guessing we will more skip starts, or shorten seasons to manage that. Akin gave a "trust the process" quote about marching orders from Holt at AAA to use sliders and change-ups when normally he wouldn't, even if walks ensued.   He said he and DL Hall talk all the time.   Asked about the 60 to 162 part of this year's challenge, he shared a bit from a conversation with Kremer, where Kremer said he simulated 50-60 innings between Spring Training 1 and Spring Training 2, and that he also was generally working like that last April/May/June too.
    • You left out Sceroler and Wells. And Mattson too for that matter.
    • I don't know Frobby.  I am guessing the performance of the NRIs is irrelevant.   I think they have a plan for Lowther, Wells, and Baumann.  I dont know exacrly what it is, and wouldn't be surprised if it was more conservative than a lot of us want. But I don't think it will be changed by what the NRIs do in the spring.  If The Plan is for any of the 3 guys to be here at the start or early in the season, they will be here.  If, more likely, The Plan is to slow play them, then I think they will be slow played.  And if all the MRI possibilities look awful, we'll either pick up someone on waivers or just go with the slightly less awful of the NRIs and suffer.  I don't think the development of Zac Lowther will be affected in any way by whether Felix Hernandez has totally lost it or if he still has something left

    • This guy is claiming they are at #25 & #65 ...In a later tweet he specifically mentions not getting credit for the tweet when its announced. I dont know him or anything about him so take it for what its worth! I'd be happy with this but really happy if somebody else steps up and they have to up it to #25 and #45        
    • They don't need rosters spots.  They might earn roster spots.
