Miami Marlins postponed even further. And the fallout has impacted the Jays - their series this weekend is not happening this weekend. And they were planning to try a double header to catch up as it is.

What a mess.

And now, positive tests on the Cardinals, so their series vs. Milwaukee is postponed.

There's no way this MLB experience finishes normally. The numbers and re-scheduling necessary just can't be accommodated unless MLB just treats it like a Survivor series for purely entertainment purposes.

Yea, I didn't think baseball was going to last with the way they were approaching it. I think NASCAR has largely gotten in right. I know MLS is doing well. NBA I am really hoping stays tight.

But I can't help but think this spells doom for NFL and NCAAF

Intern: so we have twice as many players as MLB
Exec: yup
Intern: and our protocols are about the same?
Exec: your guess is as good as mine
Intern: but you think we’ll have a season
Exec: of course, why wouldn’t we?

In reality, the NBA is the only league with a legitimate shot at working. The roster sizes allow for everyone to be in one location, no travel necessary. Once in the bubble and cleared, they're good. The problem comes when you introduce the need to travel, which the MLB, NFL, and NCAA will have. In theory, you could break these leagues down into smaller bubbles and have several scattered throughout the country, but it would require a great deal of planning and testing. NCAA probably would be harder to pull off because you'd have to allow these athletes to do classwork, but I suppose they could do that online.

NHL playoffs began about an hour ago. We'll see how their real-life attempt at "bubble hockey" goes. Social distancing, especially on the benches, is pretty much not an option.

NY Rangers goalie, Igor Sherstekin, is out and deemed "Unfit to Play". The league will not let teams report any specifics for scratched players (whether injury related or virus testing related), so we'll see how long he is held out. He did start the other night in one of the tune-up games.

So with the ambient mls feed, I got to hear the San Jose coach (Argentinian) give instruction to his team in Spanish with his translator word for word (and gesture for gesture) right behind him

Epl finished, mls winding down
But Fox is running Liga bbva

Odd thing is even though there are no fans, somehow a sniper is still able to take out a player every few minutes
Why the sniper only fires at players’ shins, and how the injuries seem to heal once the victim’s team gets the ball back is one of those mysteries I hope to untangle as the season progresses

as a former astros fan, pre this bs, once they went to the evil al, i switched to the pirates.

oh yeah, point being, fork them. if still in the nl, i'd try to, no lie as a fan, tried find a justification to support.

astros bitched out and went out to the lame arse al. a league that has stupid rules, cheater clubs, and apparently they fit perfectly. i'd almost, almost, support the cards over any al team. mentally, will never happen.

astros already sold out. i'm glad they were caught. joe kelly is a hero.

ugh. i love baseball, with the bs aside, when your team leaves your division, then cheated to win a ws.. fork them. fork the al.
