    prior to Manny, yes. At the time of Manny trade, he needed a restart. It was a fine trade.

    I just got asked " how do they maintain social distancing on the field"?
    I had no answer.

    Former big leaguer Trevor Plouffe said last night that he is hearing from multiple sources that MLB is targeting a June 10 restart to spring training and a July 1 Opening Day. Teams would play in their home parks, but without fans. There are some separate rumors that fans may be allowed to start coming, but massively spaced out.

    I'll be honest. July 1 seems like the absolute last chance for an opening day and I don't even like it that much since that means November games in these northern and midwest cities without domes where the evenings are cold as fuck.

    Plouffe is doubling down and saying that he is getting told by more and more insiders that this is the direction that the league is going right now.

    unfortunately i can see them wearing masks and only allowing a certain number of players in the dugout
    maybe the section behind the dugout will be for players to spread out
    no more visits to the mound

    I came up with some extemperaneous answers, too...but they weren't very good.
    But when asked what about the batter, catcher and umpire, I was totally zeroed out.

    Judas fucking priest ....

    Why don't we just admit that trying to hide from this is inane.

    No masks unless you want to wear one. Play sports and take chances. Get the fucking COVID & top athletes will survive 99.8% of the time. Die and I hope you're a Frisco Giant.

    Seriously... this whole conversation has become a pussified endeavor. If I didn't already have the antibody, I'd hope to get it and beat it so we could end this bullshit and move along.

    I think they should cancel the season.
    I can't even imagine caring at this point.
    They shouldn't have delayed the season in the first place.
    Everything would feel forced at this point.
    We've been forced into an economic depression and no, sports will not make us feel better.

    Yeah, I think so...even if it's not healthy ( don't know why it wouldn't be, but I'm sure someone can hypothesize), it would be just nice to see baseball in America.
    For fuck's sake, this morning I woke up to snow on the ground. Snow. I threw the calendar out. What good is it anymore?
    Shouldn't we be reading here how Kershaw fucked up everything ? Or Pollack going 0 for 4 ? Or Robots removing a pitcher in the 6th with a perfecto going?
    It's that time, goddam it!
    This is what happens when the WHOLE WORLD goes viral, all at once...

    Fuck sports. Fuck fake happiness. This nation has been ass-raped with no lube and some think nice music & a bottle of wine makes it all ok. Fuck that.

    If we're underwater because of this fuckery, and we are, I prefer cold water honesty. I can read books & watch Peckinpak DVDs until next spring if need be. Otherwise, the hell with these fake social scientists. They can all suck it.

    A bunch of rusty, uninspired players in weird make-shift divisions with empty stadiums doesn't sound entertaining.

    I'm not trying to be negative just for the sake of being negative. I genuinely don't see the appeal.

    Seager will basically be 4 years removed from MVP caliber by the time he plays his next full season. He will be rusty as fuck again after all this.
