this is just comparing players to their era, obviously. most of today's athletes would destroy players from a bygone era.

Minute Maid Park, Oklahoma Campus looks great.
Wait just looked up more pics and it does look exactly like it lol, I guess there’s only so much you can do with a retractable roof stadium but it’s not exactly unique
This delay benefits the Twins
Their pitchers get a chance to heal
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.
Did they say a start date to the 8 weeks? Seems like it would be early May no?
for every day the season gets pushed the better the Mookie trade is.
September = a third of the season?
I just want a refund for my tickets, honestly.
Hoping this means there is going to be a plan to help minor leaguers sometime after they're done with the PA.
LFG NC Dinos, eat shit you lame ass Lotte Giants fans
ISIS is a trash flag
What the fuck is this in reference to?
Let mlb die
Padres fans have a beef with Alonso? And a meme army?
Dennis Lin (Padres beat for the Athletic) follows a bunch of these guys ...
The 12 Padres fans did not appreciate Alonso winning April rookie of the month last year over Paddack, it was very strange

No hitter: Never seen one in person, or one that's gone into the 9th

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.
1st player met: Mike Mordecai (at Braves Spring Training)
No hitter: nope
1st favorite player: David Justice

Player out of uniform: Javy Lopez
1st: Jim Eisenreich
No No: No
1st favorite: Schmidt
favorite non star: Jamie Moyer
Player out of Uniform: Bret Boone loaded off his ass at the Muckleshoot
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?
man i fucking miss baseball rn
nothing would be better than staying at home and watching baseball all day
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.
