I agree w the commish. . 

On June 19, Nippon Professional Baseball will open its pandemic-delayed season, roughly three months late, commissioner Atsushi Saito told an online press conference

Japan had 33 cases nationwide yesterday. My county is having that every day.

Just announce 80-90 games and firm up the schedule.

A lot of Sox fans want the short season, but I am leery about playing less than 100 games. This was supposed to be a big developmental year for our young guys and we are punting that to 2021 if this season is too short.

Would have been really fun to follow Andrew Vaughn in the minors this season.

If all of our pitchers are healthy, who do you guys think should be our starting 5? 

The only one who may not be ready is Rodon. They should have Giolito, Kopech, Cease, Gonzalez and Keuchal.

Giolito
Keuchel
Lopez
Cease
Gonzalez

I'm torn, though.  I'd love to see Kopech in there.  If he's definitely ready to start and go 5-6 innings, maybe he's there instead of Gonzalez.  But don't we finally want to see Gonzalez actually pitch for the Sox? :)

Kopech has been ready since the fall. Most pitchers return from UCL-R at around 12 months. He's been about 22 months.

Then I would have him in there in place of Gonzalez or Lopez.

I would think thats the plan. When Rodon returns they will have the choice of the other of those to for the pen. The bullpen could be really good with both Lopez and Gonzalez in it.

Getting closer. That's the equivalent of about 58 games and full pro-rated pay. I read somewhere that the owners said about 60 games at full pay is their break even point with playoff money.

Closer, but the players will (should) not accept anything less than 100% pro rated salaries. Haven't they already publicly declined this latest offer? (idk)

really sad and annoying that these two groups can't just come together over their demands. Players *clearly* want 100% on their pro rated salaries, owners clearly won't go over 50ish games at that level. 

Like... sit in a room and work it out. It's insane to me that these groups can't do that and instead go to the public with their offers to try to one up the other side for the favor of the fans.

Yep. The owners have that number (valid or not) where they've said they need to be if there are playoffs. It's around 60. They are playing with all different scenarios but it all comes down to that so far.

Is today the day?

No. Nor is this weekend based on this proposal.

It's going to come down to Rob M. dictating a season and the players deciding if they'll play or not.

That could be a really deep rotation. And then Rodon could be ready by August.

Good to have a solid amount of options. Especially at the possibility of doubleheaders (regardless if scheduled or not).

With a 29-30 man roster and a short spring, no earthly reason to have any pitchers going every 4th day, even with the DH games. Add in Rodon and Kopech at the least. Then if you get in trouble somewhere, you have plenty of guys to put out in the bullpen as needed for short outings. 

What will be more interesting is if we see some guys like Dunning or Crochet held as part of the "backup players" or whatever they're called.
