    The season is cancelled, Mookie becomes a Free Agent and never dons the blue in a game.

    On paper the Dodgers are set to have an elite, if not historic, season. It's been the cleanest Spring Training in recent memory, very few or mild injuries, and most of the key question mark players looking sharp. Things were looking right as right could be.

    Not heartbreaking enough for what we are used to.

    • Season starts 2 weeks late
    • MLB shortens the season to 135 games
    • Dodgers proceed to win 103 games
    • Mookie signs a 10 year deal at an incredible $270M bargain and has a 50-50 season.
    • Bellinger breaks Bonds record and hits 77 homers (at one point late in the season takes an at-bat right handed and hits a homer)
    • Seager hits 78 doubles, plays incredible defense at SS all year and impregnates 12 different women during the season
    • Buehler goes 23-0, striking out an incredible 388 batters
    • Clayton Kershaw retires 1 week into the season
    • Max Muncy homers off Bumgarner, in which the ball lands into the AZ pool and proceeds to tell him to "get it out of the pool."

    3 days before the postseason is set to begin, COVID-20 strikes and is even worse then COVID-19. The entire human population is wiped out except for Kike Hernandez.

    To get a guy who is supposed to put them FINALLY over the top, only to find that there may not even be a top to get over. All this "we'll start up again in four weeks" could be a pile of happy horseshit.
    And when 2021 arrives, play or not, his Blue days could very well be wishful thinking and up in smoke...

    The “4 weeks” thing is clearly a minimum at this point, and personally I think best case scenario this is 6 weeks. If we start up before the end of June, I will feel lucky.

    With all the sports cancellations, I feel like June 15 could wind up being overloaded with sports if everyone starts back up on that day.

    If they don't play this season then his contract is not up.

    Oh, well I guess that's important...I thought that it was basically that we've got him for the 2020, and come hell or high corona, that's it.
    If this season winds up being a ridiculously short version of the norm, then better for us it doesn't happen at all, imo.
    I assume if he plays at all, the contract length is validated then, and FA is good to go for him ?

    If too much of the season, or all of it, is cancelled over this, I'm probably out as a fan.
    The only thing the Dodgers had going for them was that I have habitually watched them every summer and it has become a cruel, instinctual addiction.
    But if I get one taste of summer without the Dodgers, and I like it....well, I won't ruin a good thing.

    Jorge Castillo is reporting that he hears that there is no chance the season starts April 9th and realistically we are talking May at the earliest

    You are a fan of always saying you are going to quit as a fan but them coming back just as much a fan as always.
    And we are fans of watching you do this every year.

    I say get MLB2k or whatever the current baseball game is and play out the schedule but put it on simulation so you can sit back and watch the games.
    On the brightside Seager won't be going vegan in the video game and Kershaw won't choke in the playoffs and Kenley won't eat himself out of the closer role.

    i'd say late june/early july at the earliest

    The Dodgers haven't won a game since last season.
    They really do suck.
