I predict that the upcoming “60-game season” will be another victim of Covid.
There is that chance. I think MLB should look at what the NBA did.

Because of the circumstances, not all NBA teams were invited to Orlando. Really bad teams like the Knicks were left out.

So maybe MLB should just not invite certain sucky teams, like the Orioles, Tigers, and Phillies.

And maybe this is the year to punish dirty cheaters like the Astros and Red Sox. Leave them out too.

Only virtuous, quality teams like the Yankees should be invited to MLB 2020.

Why not just give the Yank-mees #28 and let’s just start prepping for next year? :coffee:

I agree. It’s fun watching the young players develop in a family atmosphere. I’ll miss that more than MLB.

I hope not, but maybe so. Freddie Freeman and a couple other Braves diagnosed with Covid.

Jordan Zimmerman likely done for this season, thankfully his last. His numbers since signing the 5 year/$110 million deal are 25-41, with an ERA of 5.61 and a WHIP of 1.43. Time to move on from that deal.

Cardboard cutouts of fans and piped in crowd noises. This is a fucking joke, right?

I'm excited for some baseball. Both the Rays and Phillies are on here tonight. I'll be doing a lot of flipping back and forth.
