    fwiw WSD says no baseball until 7/1 + all games in AZ

    Lol true. But I watched him play in person and it was the booze, food, and my family having a great time at the ball park that made it special.

    Gonna be tough to get excited about a season in minor parks with no fans. The game just won't be as exciting.
  4. This is true, but the experts doubt it. They are saying we'd be fortunate to only lose 100k people. We all hope for the best but not trusting the experts would be a huge mistake. I see social distancing going through June 30th and shelter in places through April, with a little more leniency in May and June.
  5. I'll say it again, if 100k people die from the virus, Baseball probably won't play out of respect to a national disaster. It's not about testing people and finding vaccines, the optics would be terrible. If 100k, the low end side of deaths is not the reality, and say 200k people die, then football will be canceled too.
  6. Not having a baseball season would be devastating for the Sox, but public safety is more important obviously. Our window would get pushed back to 2022. Also, I think if they play 100 games, they need to let at least 8 teams from each league in the playoffs. Have a few best of three series and a few byes in each league. This is important in my opinion because it keeps teams and fans engaged the entire season and makes the playoffs more exciting for fans. It also limits how much tanking would go on.
  7. I agree. But I don't think baseball will play out of respect. If the Government and doctors are correct and 100k people die by the summer, baseball will be respectful and not have a season. Now if they are all wrong and say, 20k people die but the virus is dying fast, it may be different. But again, I think it will be more of a moral issue for baseball than a logistics one.
  8. Yeah, but the US situation is much worse right now. I am praying that things don't go sideways and people will be okay. Our Congress needs to stop fighting and get stuff down ASAP.
  9. There will be no baseball this year. The Government is saying even with social distancing going through June, 100k people will die from Coronavirus by August. We were unprepared and incompetent leadership screwed us over.

    Sox option Kopech

    If teams are doing this, I think it's obvious where we will be headed. It's also been discussed that players will accrue service time if no season is played. I think MLB will still count today and moving forward as time earned in the usual manner. If the season starts in June, 60 plus days would have been accrued towards service time. It helps the players for sure, and teams still get the extra year if they bring players along as they would have. It also ensures the best players will be on the field from day one.

    I'm thinking teams are treating this as if nothing will change regarding service time dates. If the season is shortened, MLB may stick with the regular dates and count this time now as the season.

    If the season is lost, how will it affect players?

    It appears to be based on a championship season. If a championship is played thisbyear, service time will be accrued.

    What would it take to get Noah Syndergaard?

    Sounds like he may not miss any time then.

    The problem is we are flattening the curve, so the virus may be here much longer, and a new sharp increase in the curve could happen.

    China is doing much better now. They've even had days of no new cases. We must be careful, but this won't be a year long deadly virus. Hopefully by June the virus will be much weaker and we will have treatment for it.
