    Feel bad for fans of good teams. I'm bummed, but if we're going to basically lose a year it's nice to have zero good players on a team that would have otherwise lost 100+ games again.

    I'd really love to know how and why they are coming up with July now. I am all for safety, not complaining at all, just wondering how they came to that date.

    Well the CDC recommended no gathering over 50 for 8 weeks. That gets us to June. By then they probably need closer to a month of spring training.

    and that seems like if it’s the best case scenario if the social distancing works to stop the spread

    Yeah agreed on the 8 weeks, I could definitely see the month to prepare. I think that seems reasonable.

    Edit: As of right now of course. That's without having a ton of information.

    1st Player Met: Willie McGee (He came to a baseball camp)
    No hitter: Never seen one in person, or one that's gone into the 9th
    1st Favorite Player: Ozzie Smith
    Favorite Non Star: Ray Lankford
    Player out of Uniform: Ozzie Smith***

    I may have seen others out of uniform, but Ozzie is what I remember. His restaurant opened recently and I picked it to go there for my birthday. Ozzie was actually there, making the rounds. We all were really excited, and my mom asked my little brother "Do you know who that is?!?!" And my 5 year old brother says "Yeah! That's Michael Jordan!!!!" My parents were mortified.

    The service time thing is a joke. What the fuck?

    And I'm obviously biased about the draft thing, but that would be an absolute disaster to do that to an entire class of kids. How the fuck would that even work? Just have a double draft in 2021 and screw over an entire class of HS kids, on top of what it would do to college kids having to wait a year?

    If they're going to skip a draft this year, they're gonna have to double the draft pool spending wise next year as well.
