  1. Everytime I want to play by the time the damn system loads up I'm already ready to move on.
  2. so ...maybe more than 2 weeks
  3. I honestly don't know. I assumed it was subscription service gaming? maybe it's PC or something. Anyway, not trying to be flip. Made a lot of adjustments of plans. My mom already had her hours cut and we are supporting and I know that's happening all over country. But when it comes to dealing with the changes it is funny how much of a void is coming with the lack of baseball for me. Like this will be worse than the offseason by 100x, but hopefully those are my thoughts and not actually watching a spiraling health care system.
  4. lol this was my first place I went. I was supposed to go to san fran this weekend, canceled, kept the day off tomorrow. Was going to buy a video game or start this "steam" thing the kids keep telling me about. Ugh dang it I forgot I need a PS4 for baseball. I have to just get my teeth kicked in on OOTP again.

  6. yeah. Let's keep digging until we get to the other side. I say lets unlock and bring back the machado thread. I will need to start crocheting or something.

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    yeah...otoh i'd rather have a draft team aligned to lots of human scouts this year rather than analytics (assuming they got some looks in on enough guys)
  8. So Kopech doesn't need to be kept down at least?

    Uh, I mean yes I worry more about my children dying than my dad. I would be in a bubble suit right now if the infant/toddler death rate was 17.5%.

    But the point is to slow down the spread to not overwhelm the medical infrastructure. They aren't advocating permanent shut-in, just that we reduce the current trajectory to allow capacity to build up, testing to build up so that it can be handled. This isn't going to cure it. Even a vaccine won't cure it, just make it manageable within society.

    So Donovan Mitchell has also tested positive for corona virus (how are NBA players getting tests so easily? A NoVa congressman was denied one)
  13. I mean there aren't that many LHPs it's probably fine.
  14. Do I think they will place most of Mazaras off days against LHP? Yes I do. Do I think they will call this a platoon? No I do not.

    If the US was actually testing a lot, you could point to the KBO of something that had restrictions but looks like the season will mostly go as planned. but with the US flying in the dark who knows

    Between the injuries and global pandemic, I’m not sure we had a real chance to accurately judge Boylens coaching and he should return next year. - John Paxson somewhere

    So here’s the thing - a vast majority of people who get this will not need to go to a doctor in their recovery. But a good percentage are. This virus appears to be very contagious. The bigger the spread, the more that smaller percentage of people needing hospitalization becomes an actual larger number. if that happens too quickly, there is not enough capacity in our hospitals to help them. That’s what happened in Italy, that’s what happened in Wuhan. So a whole bunch of people died because they could not get the medical attention needed because capacity was overwhelmed. Rudy Gobert will be fine. But his idiocy means a whole number more people may get it, and increase the likelihood of a surge. And yeah, I hope if I get in a car crash at the same time I can get medical treatment because there are hospital beds.

    Mizzou just did as well. Many of friends companies now officially wfh. All conferences have canceled. St Patrick’s day parade was canceled. My Church Is online next 3 weeks The idea that only the affected cities are doing anything is asinine. Didn’t even mention the NCAA tourney eliminating fans from live events.

    I believe the WHO report from China placed 2 weeks incubation at the high end, but the median was 5 days for symptoms to appear.
