    4 Nets players tested positive. NBA is in trouble.

    I have to believe more MLB players have it than they are willing to disclose.

    Misspoke. Meant 2022

    pretty sure we can all assume this years ASG isn’t happening unless the season starts before or around June, or unless they use last years all stars for this game.

    Me too, man. I was never the cowboy, but sure played at that. And army all the time, against Krauts and Japs.
    But when I was a child, I spake as a child.

    I know I am a terrible person but I get disappointed when I see a player has the virus and it's not a Houston player.

    I know the AS game makes money for the league, but probably not what 45 regular season games could make over the 3 days. I wonder if they try to squeeze in a game after the season in November, in a warm site.

    I hate the Astros and every Nor Cal team I can, but myself living in the Bay Area with my wife and kids, let's not extend that to normal everyday people.

    Does it help the Verlander had a knife to his balls?

    Chris Sale needs TJ and the timing could not be any worse. Due to “elective” surgeries not being done right now for Covid-19, he may need to wait months until this dies down. If that happens, he will likely miss the entirety of the 2020 AND 2021 seasons. This was the first year of his huge extension and would be an early dunk cost of $60M.

    Luckily for them, their bad fortune comes after already winning the World series. Same as the Cubs and Astros. They'll be content for longer than their struggles will last. Then, they will probably win another World series.

    What makes the Dodgers situation so frustrating and sad is that they are the most consistently excellent team in baseball for the past 10-15 years and have nothing to show for it. Then you have teams like the Giants, Royals, and even the Red Sox who seemingly alternate from sucking to winning the World series on a semi annual basis

    Looks like the batters eye will be black (racist), not blue as it was in the renderings. Which I think is better.

    The Dodgers were going to be the featured team by Baseball America with their MiLB Preview for 2020 before the suspension happened and they changed it all up. The title was "Built to Last" with the underscore " The Dodgers' player development machine continues producing stars to restock baseball's Best-Run Franchise". The picture was of Dustin May and Gavin Lux together on one of the back fields at Camelback. It looks like I am going to have to order the magazine if I want to read the piece.

    Random prediction. If the league does restart this year, we will see more injuries than we ever have and some team out of nowhere will probably pull off the title. Some team that usually would have worn down the back stretch of the season, but it didn't happen.
