  1. There will be sports but I doubt we will see MLB in 2020. If the 2nd round comes next fall and it is controlled, then I think the winter sports will start their seasons around November 1st.
  2. Players would also be the problem. If they start playing games and a player or coach gets diagnosed, the whole team would be quarantined for 2 weeks.
  3. Just my opinion, it could be a part but the big part of normalcy will be getting the average person back to school and work. Then reopen things like churches, beaches and parks. Finally sports and entertainment ( i.e. large public crowds) and anything else.
  4. But 6 months down the road will be September. The other 3 sports could start then but I doubt baseball will due to the outdoor element.
  5. I think professional sports will be considered a low priority in term of bringing the country back to some stage of normalcy. So if there is a cure or if new cases drop radically then we will hear talk of "no fan" sports starting up. I think baseball could be the last sport if we are talking 6+ months down the road since weather is a factor limiting it over the other 3 major sports.
  6. I wonder if MLB players can collect unemployment. Obviously most players on MLB roster are pretty set financially. But other than those who signed big bonuses, many minor league players could be hurting with not playing if they are getting getting any compensation.
  7. Not sure that is true. If a player is on the DL for a full season, he still gets service time. I think there needs to be a special determination by MLB how this season will be designated in regards to service time. http://m.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/service-time Players receive Major League service time for each day spent on the 26-man roster (it was 25, prior to 2020) or the Major League injured list. Important to players and clubs alike, service time is used to determine when players are eligible for arbitration as well as free agency.
  8. Many said same thing about March Madness.
  9. Florida has a flu season even if they are 30+ degrees warmer than the north in the winter. But they see the same drop off in the summer.
  10. Not necessarily. Some experts think it will decline in the summer( hot weather) like the flu does. But this virus may not follow the norm. "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explains that while influenza viruses circulate year-round, they are most common during fall and winter months. These viruses survive better in colder and drier climates. Therefore the chances that you will get the flu in the summer, which consists of hot and humid conditions, are greatly reduced." http://jamaicahospital.org/newsletter/can-you-get-the-flu-in-the-summer/
  11. But as we saw in the NBA and the college ref that doesn't work either. Would you test every player and ump before games?. What happens when a player tests positive and his team is then quarantined?
  12. The no fans idea is probably toast. The Utah jazz players and the NCAA ref coming down with it pretty much means games will be cancelled for several months minimum.
  13. It is still on but probably not for long. If they open up the games, they would have to at least do the temp check on players/coaches. Like we saw w NBA last night , some kids are going to be positive which would eliminate that team. It would be chaos. I would assume NCAA will postpone or more likely cancel the tourneys.

    Probably a moot point. I doubt there will be an OD roster at this point. I would guess MLB is done until mid-summer at least.

    Your 2020 Season Expectations

    The CDC says that only 31 percent of men and 65 percent of women wash their hands after using the bathroom I saw a similar stat several years ago and thought it must be wrong. I drive New England to Florida several times a year. I started noticing how often a guy goes right out the door from the urinal in rest stops. I am sure some have hand sanitizer in their car but now I believe the numbers are accurate. https://www.google.com/search?q=percentage+of+people+who+wash+their+hands&rlz=1C1CHBD_enUS889US889&oq=percentage+of+people+who+wash+their+hands&aqs=chrome..69i57.10934j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
