    7/25 GT - Twins at Sox - 1:10pm

    Hopefully you are moving away from Tampa not to it.
  3. I wasn't sure if this belonged in this forum. I would assume it will have an impact on AL East.
  4. Remember when "Opening Day" was an annual event to skip school and head out to the ballpark. Now it is "Opening Night"
  5. There is another way of looking at it. Forget the 12 years and he will be 40 at the end. The Dodgers probably said we will pay him $380Mil and hope that he gives us say 8 or 9 premium years. The 12 years was probably a carrot for Betts. If that happens, they could care less if the last 3 he is the 25th guy on the roster. Trout and Betts will be a big chunk of the LA economy going forward.

    Blue Jays must Find a US home field

    I realize It is not apples to oranges, but it seems like allowing NHL teams to play in Canada and banning the Blue Jays from playing in Toronto seems like radically different decisions. I wonder if the Blue Jays turned down any alternatives from Canadian officials.

    Mazara starting season on IL?

    Engel makes peanut shells. Leury and Holt each makes $3.25. I think Leury is a little better in that I don't think Holt ever plays CF.

    Asterisk? But will it be legit?

    I will feel bad for the fans. TV is fine but going to playoff games in any sport is always very special. Obviously all us die-hards are ecstatic MLB as well as the other sports are returning. But I think World Series games w cardboard fans will always come along w an asterisk for the fans.

    Blue Jays must Find a US home field

    I agree that Canada has every right to protect their citizens how they choose. Not sure how much of a factor, but I would assume the AL East contenders get a boost w Toronto losing their "home field" advantage. There isn't a fan impact but the travel aspect will be a hindrance.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I think a portion of every fan base focuses only on power numbers. Complimentary guys like Madrigal and even Engel are pieces that successful teams usually on their roster.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I think if we start seeing teams "getting hit hard" the season will most likely get cancelled by either MLB or the Union.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I agree since a good number of players made at least a $1+million last season. But I also assume there are a few players on every team who live w/o any fiscal responsibility.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I saw in local paper yesterday, Red Sox announced their two players who tested positive. Maybe Hahn will announce White Sox players tomorrow

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    Sounds good. I just found this article which clears it up. What we will do is the positive individual will be removed from the rest of the group,” Manfred said, via the Houston Chronicle. “There will be quarantine arrangement in each facility and in each city, and then we’ll do contact tracing for the individuals we believe there was contact with, and we’ll do point of care testing for those individuals to minimize the likelihood that there is a spread.” https://www.google.com/search?as_q=MLB&as_epq=if+a+player+tests+positive+&as_oq=&as_eq=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&lr=&cr=&as_qdr=all&as_sitesearch=&as_occt=any&safe=images&as_filetype=&tbs=

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    I am not sure how the quarantine will work. I don't see a large number of players testing positive. But I am not clear that when a player tests positive, who else on the roster has to also quarantine because of exposure issues?

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    No problem. It was somewhat confusing the way Sporttrac laid it out.

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    Ray: I gave you the same info on Baseball Reference and Baseball Prospectus but you chose Sporttrac. They have the same info as well but you read it wrong.They broke it down into different lists. The first 10 players were on the active roster at end of season. You stopped there. The 14 are the 10 plus Nate Jones-Carlos Rodon and John Jay all injured but still made well over a million per year. The last was Alonso who go traded mid-season but was paid $8 Mil by the White Sox. So again, the White Sox had 14 players on their roster getting paid $1.4 million and up staritng w Anderson and finishing at Abreu at $16 Mil. .

    Taxi Squad Candidates

    From what I have read, they will only be working out at one site so it appears they will not be competing against other taxi squads.

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    You say the data is wrong? I gave you the link from Baseball Prospectus with 14 players starting at 1.4 Mil and ending at $16 Mil( Anderson up to Abreu). Baseball Reference has the same data but lists only 13 since Alonso got traded but the White Sox were still on the hook for $8 mil. to him. No clue where your data says only 10 over $580,000. .

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    Ray: The White Sox had $91Mil in salaries in 2019 which ranked them 26th out of 30. So, in general they were on the very low side. They averaged $3.1 million per player on the 28 man roster and 14 of them made $1.4 million and up to Abreu at $16 Mil. . https://legacy.baseballprospectus.com/compensation/index.php?team=CHA&cyear=2019

    Totally agree.

    2020 60 game sprint to the finish

    Ray: Average MLB salary is $4.38 million. MLB minimum is $563,500. If the average major league player is on a roster for 4-5 years they should be pretty close.

    Sorry but you are living in a different world. There are millions of Americans who went back to work because they need to support their families. They work in all type of different jobs with different degrees of exposure. Most professional athletes can opt out if they choose and live off their past earnings.Those that choose to play will make big bucks and will be tested and protected a hell of a lot more often than the average person. Athletes are no where near lab rat status compared to most workers on the front lines.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    If games occur, I think you can reduce exposure in and around the ballpark. But I don't know how solid protocols will be away from the ballpark, especially for the home team.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Yesterday we saw 5 members of the Phillies test positive at their training site. If that occurs during the season, what happens during the resulting quarantine? You could end up w teams losing numerous players for 1-2 weeks at a time. That issue extends to all major sports. We saw a couple of Tampa Bucs also test positive this week.
