    Kopech sitting out 2020

    A lot of people, myself include have concerns about minor league players, and a lot of ML players losing a year of development time this season. As stated previously, Kopech has pitched 14 professional innings since 2018. It’s reason for concern.

    Don’t disagree with any of that.

    Kopech sitting out 2020

    I think the bigger overall concern, aside from whatever is going on in his personal/private life....is he’s thrown 14 MLB innings since 2018. With 2020 a wash.....he’s going to have missed A LOT of development time. Kopech also has been known to be ultra-competitive, so hopefully that fire is still there and he can come back stronger than ever. But he’s got a fight ahead of him.

    Kopech sitting out 2020

    Eh, it would really hurt but I don’t think it would be a death sentence. I also don’t want to get into a huge debate about if Kopech does/doesn’t come back because we just don’t have enough info to go on, and I don’t want to speculate on someone’s personal life. Having said that...Been thinking about this topic the last few days. Doesn’t make me feel any better, but when you think about the rebuild and the assets they acquired....you knew a few of them weren’t going to pan out. That core of Eloy-Moncada-Giolito-Kopech-Robert-Madrigal-Vaughn-Lopez-Kelly-Crochet......like 3-4 of those guys aren’t going to hit, just aren’t. Not saying Kopech has fallen into that group, far too early for that...but we knew going in a few of the “blue chip” prospects weren’t going to hit.

    Shouldn’t be a surprise. It will be interesting to hear from Kopech if and when he decides to speak. Hope he is alright.

    But there are those here, on LibTalk.com, that feel like the White House has done nothing wrong during this pandemic. Just ask them....

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    This paragraph was written probably 50,000 times in 2016 one way or another. So, no, I’m not going to take your advice. Having a global embarrassment holding the highest office in the land, who continues to put American’s in harms way should not just get a shoulder shrug, no matter what Rush, Tucker, Hannity, or the rest of your media buddies spew. That’s why people are bent out of shape, greg. You can spend your time being angry about haircuts and sitting in the park.

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    I don’t get that vibe at all. The answers around Moncada seem very obvious it’s COVID (not saying it’s 100% that but certainly seems like it) but the stuff around Kopech has a different vibe to it. Whatever the case, hope everyone stays healthy and gets the help they need, with whatever they may be dealing with.

    It was asked a few days ago “How has the White House handled this poorly?” I submit exhibit 1,367 to the court:

    This is from the most watched cable news show in the country, who just last week set a new all-time viewership record. I think we can stop with the “I just don’t understand why the mask has to be a political thing...”

    Legit have zero idea who that is, so that was my confusion, haha.

    Anderson is 100% in camp, so we can cross that off.

    I can too. The collective IQ in this country has dropped to dangerously low levels. The “Q” movement may be a vocal minority but it seems to be gaining members every day. My faith in the American public, not to mention our government is at all-time lows, and have very little confidence the American public will make the right choice in November.

    You asked how the White House has failed. I laid out multiple ways, your response was citing “counter arguments” that revolves around agencies that have nothing to do with the White House. In terms of your request, I really don’t see that serving much of a purpose with you, at least until you start to dig your head out of the sand, and drop those water jugs you seem to want to carry for your Orange leader. Don’t ask the question if you don’t want a real response.

    According to Pew research from 2019: 33 million American's don't use the internet at all 27% of US adults over 65 don't use the internet at all 18% of households making under $30,000 don't use the internet 44% of households making under $30,000 don't have access to "broadband internet" which is basically standard internet at this point I understand what you're trying to get at, but it's just not that simple.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    That’s where I’m at as well. I think they get it started...but I’ll be somewhat surprised if MLB makes it to the post season. I think you’ll see a team have 12-14 guys test positive, and when you basically eliminate a team, you’ve got to shut it down.

    Sorry, but this had to be responded to. https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/politics/the-fix/54-times-trump-downplayed-the-coronavirus/2020/03/05/790f5afb-4dda-48bf-abe1-b7d152d5138c_video.html That’s without mentioning Trump saying he would like testing to slow down because it reveals more positive results, the White House walking it back by saying “Oh he was just joking” then Trump saying “I don’t joke about things about that.” Or when he told the WSJ he believed some are wearing masks not as a preventative measure, but as a way to show disproved for his leadership skills? Or in May when he went to a Ford plant to tour the facility, and he was the only one not wearing as a mask, his response was “I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing me in a mask.” Because why would you want to send that message to American’s, that’s it’s a positive to wear a mask? I mean, should I keep going? Do you need more? Do I need to keep providing info on how the leader of this country, the man who has 40+ million people asking “How High?” when he says jump, has totally and completely sent the wrong and harmful message to the country since this all started?

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    Take the political COVID discussion to the proper thread, let’s keep this to baseball if we can. Discussion can continue on political dealings with COVID, but this is the wrong thread for it.
