  1. Past hour
  2. Yeah that's crazy talk to me. Come July, in a season that seemed like it had unlimited potential, we should all be happy with having baseball back in our lives, in any form. Will it be the same? Absolutely not. But it's 100x better than what we have now.

    fwiw WSD says no baseball until 7/1 + all games in AZ

    No idea how anyone would prefer no season when 1) our core will be accruing a year of service time either way and 2) we’ll all be going stir crazy from social distancing / quarantining. Three or four month of White Sox baseball on TV sounds like a gift from the gods right now.

    Still gonna be ackward.
  5. I agree. I'd settle for anything.

    Now we're at 9,000. Johns Hopkins had to update again
  7. Uh not me. I definitely want to see these dudes.
  8. Today
  9. 100% agree. I'd almost rather there not be a season.

    https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2020/04/05/fareeds-take-coronavirus-global-crisis-gps-vpx.cnn This kind of puts it all in perspective...
  11. I never really understood the wisdom in trading away the International Draft Money, unless it was just to prevent them from wasting it themselves. I know that Sox also saved half a mill on the Beef Wellington trade, but there have been other International money deals that were less obvious.

    Up another 400 since this.

    Gonna be tough to get excited about a season in minor parks with no fans. The game just won't be as exciting.

    FS: White Sox cut 14 players; Re-Assign others

    Lol those scathing takes on the Rangers trades are great. The harold Diaz move seems curious, not that I know a lot about the situation
  15. For some distraction and to take this seriously, the interesting implications are the Sox and Twins now having most of the season with their pitching depth Twins will start with hill, but lose a bigger chunk with Pineda. Sox can comfortably bring up kopech, not worry about innings, and will have Rodon within a month. Gio also had some more time to rest and a shorter season to manage. And with cease as well, no innings restrictions worry.

    Not to distract you but there will be rampant cheating followed by civil upheaval. It will be a year like no other.

    It's really a state problem, the Feds should not be involved. Did you see I am #1 on Facebook?
  18. TV revenue alone might not be enough.

    This article suggests that the length of time needed to deal with this is not weeks or months, but years: https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2020/3/17/21181694/coronavirus-covid-19-lockdowns-end-how-long-months-years?fbclid=IwAR3vjyS_3itpCSdEkb_asq27yoQ9xdP6nKNN4HT3dm81lPa9vUe0-K6XdGk

    Someone should ask POTUS if he is a wartime President or a federal back up. You can’t be both.

    The federal government's response to this has been abysmal. There has been plenty of denial, lack of urgency, and almost no competence. It is still abysmal. It is not just disturbing; it is outrageous. And the idiots who ranted about hoaxes should crawl into a hole and never come out. We've lost valuable time, and people died as a result. Trump has his nerve running for re-election. He should be resigning.

    January 3 China notifies US of viral outbreak followed by cover-up about viral transmission. Former US technical rep in Wuhan was removed by US by or before this benchmark. March 13 US declares national emergency. The 70 days of US reaction/ response in between are quite disturbing.

    Scheduling will be very interesting with this one. You can't just pick up where the original 2020 schedule left off...at least not with the same divisions. That would give unfair advantages and disadvantages. You'd most certainly either have to completely change the schedule and completely revamp divisions.
  25. Better idea just have an AZ and an FL league. Players can drive around to get to games and wear masks. Who will be first to have masks on eBay with team logos. Night games only. It would be uplifting to have some games in the weirdest season ever.
  26. My own opinion is that the 2020 season will be cancelled. My hope is that a vaccine gets discovered, tested, approved and made available prior to Spring Training 2021. Perhaps the 2021 season can be moved back a month or two if that would help. I don't know how the Great Depression impacted attendance at games and ticket prices but if the economy continues to tank, tickets for 2021 games should be reduced dramatically. However, that would be a tough pill to swallow for franchises that might already be on the brink of Bankruptcy by then. How many could sustain the loss of revenue for an entire season ?
