  1. Tuesday's positive number bumped to 7 and yesterdays number is 3, so last 6 days: 17, 10, 3, 12, 7, 3. 599 total cases now, 446 recovered, 153 active and 0 hospitalizations. 311 tests reported today, 429 yesterday, 610 Monday. Another significant positive is that the positive rate of the surveillance testing is 0.8%, 36 positives out of 4470 total tests. So it definitely appears like their contact tracing is working very effectively.
  2. I remember it pretty vividly. I slept in the spare bedroom that had a TV that night so I could watch the game - It was on ABC that night I believe (we could only get Channel 4 to come in clear sometimes if the antenna rotor was turned just right and the weather was just right from our home 100 miles from Detroit.
  3. Don't forget we got Bergman too. For some reason, I still vividly remember his at bat where he fouled off 30 pitches (ok, the total at bat was 13 pitches but it did last 7 minutes). It's crazy what you remember from age 10 when you are up later than you are supposed to be..
  4. On a positive note. ND was back in person classes yesterday after 2 weeks online. Daily cases keep decreasing. Last 5 days: 17,10, 3, 12, 2 from a peak of 102, 89, 82 Aug 17-19. The peak was all traced back to 2 off campus parties the weekend before school started. Another major positive, of the 591 positive results since back at school, 410 are recovered and 0 hospitalizations. They isolated every positive for 10 days and quarantined every close contact until they had 2 negative tests -first taken at 4 days, 2nd at 6 or 7 days from contact. They have been using apartments, hotels, etc. They are continually increasing the surveillance testing - my son was tested once last week, and are starting Saliva testing I believe this week in which case they will be testing everyone much more in order to isolate positives quicker. From it being a question if they were going to be able to stay on campus a couple weeks ago, I'm getting pretty confident they will be able to finish off the semester.
  5. Just waiting for the comments "Avila is so stupid to waste a year of service time on a season that will probably be cancelled early anyhow. Not only that but to not wait until the Super 2 deadline has passed. What a waste of $" Odds are they will come from the same people who were saying how not calling them up earlier would cause no draft picks to want to sign with the Tigers.
  6. I agree. For all the negativity from the positive cases, in reality, a very small amount of players/staff are testing positive.
  7. Exactly. smaller school (roughly 8500 undergrads) and large campus basically on its own.
  8. We will see how it is on campuses soon enough. My son's classes started today at ND. There was one student on campus Thursday/Friday that tested positive and 6 were quarantined that were in close contact. It will definitely be an interesting case study. The campus has a lot put into place to help it work, but they also have a lot of room on campus for some of it (like setting up large tents outside of the dining halls, using many different settings for classrooms including the hotel on campus, etc)
  9. A bit of an overreaction? I was just saying that as it appears there is some judgement that was being given to Stafford for even considering playing because of the cancer Kelly had. It's one thing to say what we would do in the situation, and even to question if he will opt out, but IMO it crosses into judgement when we are saying what we think he should do. We have no idea on that.
  10. I think we are crazy to be saying what decision the Stafford family should be making. It is a decision that is completely up to them and whatever decision they come to as a family is right for them. If they are concerned about the risk to Kelly's health, and choose to opt out, that is the right decision for them. If they as a couple are in agreement he should play, then that's the right decision for them and it doesn't say anything about his character or concern for his family's health. Whatever decision they make, as long as they make it together, is the right decision for them. People have different amounts of risk they are willing to accept and that is ok, as long as they are in agreement as a family.
  11. I agree, and if you do Age based, I don't think you need to have different ages. if you just had just a flat 26-27 to be a FA, but started arbitration after say 2 years of service time it would enable those who make it to the majors early (Juan Soto, Bryce Harper, or Riley Greene🤪)would beging to be compensated more fairly early. Those that arrive to the majors later may not have any arbitration time, but would be free agents right away.
  12. Very nice. There is a 2018 Bowman Paredes in a Tigers Uniform.
  13. I could list many other examples about people dying in the nursing homes who couldn't see family for months after seeing them multiple times per week. All in counties that have extremely low infection rates (328 infections for 100,000 population where I live and 110 infections for 42,000 population where my business is). All I'm saying is this isn't a black and white stop infections at all cost issue IMO and politics are big on both sides. Michigan has one of the highest death/infection rates in the country as do the other states that were/are putting infected patients back into long term care facilities. Michigan is also appears to have a liberal calculation of deaths adding deaths later (2-3 times per week) by looking at death certificates and listing everyone who had COVID as a COVID death. So it's hard to tell for sure, except politics definitely factor in significantly on both sides.
