    Dude it’s gonna be so crazy that even the purist fans who want to scoff at this season are gonna be like, “You know what, dang, this is pretty awesome”.

    They will get on board just like they did when the wildcard rounds were added.  Good lord there were a lot of old grumps that didn't want that

    I guess that's more what I meant. I wonder how they will determine the new name? Fan vote?

    I have to imagine at some point In the past decade they have Internally pitched a few different logos that they have ready to go.  Should be interesting to see how this goes, and how it starts to affect similar teams like the Indians, Chiefs and college teams like FSU

    After some consideration with the wife, we aren't going on that trip to Utah I mentioned earlier. I think we could do a lot to mitigate some of the risks, but the reality is the plane ride is just too much, plus we have no idea how crowded certain places will be and won't have a lot of choices if they are.

    Probably going to rent a house or cabin on the water for that week instead (probably Wisconsin or Michigan), stay mostly in the house except going out to canoe, fish, swim, hike, bike, etc. Get groceries, pick up food, maybe eat out just a few times when it's outside dining. Way less risk, still a week of fun for the kiddies and some time to relax. Also likely a much cheaper trip, so bonus there.

    Still really want to do Zion, Bryce, etc., they will just have to wait.

    Disappointing for sure, but smart.

    If we can have an abbreviated MLB season, why can't the minors do the same?  Expand rosters to 30-35, Every MLB team has 2 minor league teams, easy.

    I think the complications of testing in the minors is the problem and none of them want to spend that extra money to do it.

    “The reality is we weren’t going to play more than 60 games no matter how the negotiations with the players went,” said Manfred.

    Tell us something we didn't know ya giant turd.  

    Doesn't this admission hurt them in any grievance regarding bad faith negotiations?

    Well first of all I'd really like to watch an expanded playoffs because I enjoy the playoffs.

    Second, we know darn well that good teams go into slumps and this year they'd have only 1 chance to do so before having to come right out of it.

    Third, this year some teams are going to lose substantial number of players to quarantines and that could easily be the difference between 33-27 and 27-33.

    First, I also would like an expanded playoffs, but nobody could get together and make up their minds. There is nothing we can do about that.

    Second, when it comes to talking about teams that may be better than they show out of the gate, I honestly don't feel bad for them.  Every team has 60 games to play, they all know what they need to do.  If they come out flat I'm not gonna be like "oh damn we need more playoffs for this team that blew off half the season to be able to get in"

    Third, this may or may not be true.  Bundesliga is managing this situation and they are still playing.  The number might be substantial but it is not guaranteed like you think it is

    After 60 games in 2019, the Washington Nationals had a record of....27-33. 

    Clearly 2019 first 60 games and 2020 first 60 games should be evaluated the same.

    honestly why does your above factoid even matter to you?  We are to feel bad or something because last years world champion took 162 games to get to the playoffs and they won't be afforded the same chance this year? Everyone knows the stakes this year. You come out flat, you don't play in the post season.  Sorry
