    Tanaka got shaky every time a runner got on. My meter would go super fast. That's why I got wild every time a runner got on.

    Yankees bats are ice cold. Sox take a 2-1 series lead.

    • Implementing an electronic strike zone to allow the home-plate umpire to maintain sufficient distance from the catcher and batter

    • No mound visits from the catcher or pitching coach

    • Seven-inning doubleheaders, which, with an earlier-than-expected start date, could allow baseball to come closer to a full 162-game season

    • Regular use of on-field microphones by players, as an added bonus for TV viewers

    • Sitting in the empty stands 6 feet apart - the recommended social-distancing space - instead of in a dugout

    Ok with all of it but the 7 inning double headers. Fuck that. 14 innings a day for a staff?

    the players are going to have to sit at their houses or hotel rooms every single day for months and not go anywhere or get tested every single day

    no way it happens

    Yea the travel is impossible. Maybe use spring training facilities for games. AL in Florida, NL in Zona. Even that sounds nuts.

    Amazing how much the players are suddenly willing to change about the game when the checks aren't rolling in.

    Also, that would be weird as fuck in terms of not having any minor leagues. How the hell would that work in the case of injuries? Are guys just supposed to be working out at home for months just in case they're needed?

    Doesn't seem like Florida is an option if it wasn't mentioned in that story. Also, you'd have to have a team switch leagues for the year to make that work and create an even number of teams.

    Wouldn't just be players, too. Seems like broadcasters, camera guys, etc. would also be in the same boat.

    The 7 inning DH games already happen in the minors so it's not a huge deal, IMO. It would inevitably lead to non-baseball fans saying baseball should make all games 7 innings because they're better, which would be annoying.

    So no umpire and no dugout. If you can't have things like that then maybe it isn't safe to play the games.

    What happens when a player on first base? Shouldn’t be allowed to hold him on. Gotta social distancing yourself.

    Ok so who all has The Show? We can have make a playoff bracket and have series. We can set rotation rules and all for it. Bring the team you root for or pick a team not being used by a fan of that team.

    Degausser said he's looking to buy a ps4 to get in on the action.

    I don't have a huge issue with them playing games for a while in Arizona with no fans and under extreme precautions. What I don't get is rushing into that without having a better understanding of what the landscape may look like in July, August and September. The only reason to rush into playing games like this as soon as possible is money, and that's incredibly short sighted if they started back up like this and then had to stop or things didn't go the way they were supposed to because they rushed into it.

    It's sounding like the sports world as a whole is more optimistic than what you hear on the news.

    What I think is really happening is they have several scenarios set up to start playing. The most aggressive is mid June, next is early fall, and last is if there is no 2020. The commissioner of the LPGA said this is what they are working with and they would be one of the more desperate leagues to get back going I would imagine.

    It's easier to have aggressive timelines in place and punt back to the later on than to scramble to get everything up and running once you get the green light

    I honestly thought about getting a gaming system for the first time in like 15 years just to play this game in quarantine, but then I saw PS5 was supposed to come out this year so I worried about spending $400 to have a useless platform in less than a year.

    What are we thinking, 4 man rotations like the playoffs? Every game you have to use the next SP? I don't think I should be allowed to throw Cole every game. I wish there was a way to do it with fatigue on so that we can't use the same bullpen guys every game too but you can't turn that on in an exhibition game. Every player is fresh every game.
