Several different hitters in the Tiger lineup this year...........but Legendary Lloyd is still teaching his strikeout philosophy.........even without the title of hitting coach.

The Tigers led the league in strikeouts and were second to last in bases on balls last year.   It appears that as long as Lloyd is with this team this is not going to change. The Tiger hitters recognition of the the strike zone is horrible.   

Put the d*** ball in play.

Matt Davidson of the Reds has tested positive for COVID-19.   

I have a feeling, since there is a 2 day lag, that some team is going to have a bunch of positives right out of the gate in the first week (Nationals, Yankees, Reds & Tigers are early favorites) and that's gonna be that.

The good news is this team will not set the record for most losses in franchise history.  Other good news is that they are in the lead for the #1 pick in the draft again.

So many positives after just 1 game.  It's amazing.

As long as they can keep the volume down to something they can characterize as a "trickle", I think they're going to keep going until someone working in baseball dies. It wouldn't even have to be a player or coach—it could be a clubhouse attendant or TV cameraman or grounds crew member. But the moment someone dies, the noise it generates is going to be too great even for Baseball to ignore. And if that happens, it might take all the other sports down with it.

What happens if an entire team or 75% of a team tests positive?   Keep in mind Juan Soto is not sick, he's positive and he spent 2 days with his teammates.

Tigers picked up Carson Fulmer off waivers,  he was a 2015 First round pick of the White Sox.  Not a bad guy to take a flyer on.imo

The Tigers might be able to get a win if they are playing them.

A positive test rate of 75% can't be passed off as a trickle, so I believe it's not going to have to get even remotely that far along to call off the season. I'd think 20% of players and coaches testing positive would be enough to stoke valid concerns about continuing with the season.

Of course, I would expect Baseball to hide cases to the degree they can, or at least try to find a way to, because they now that they're into it, I don't see why they'd want to pull the plug now. They want desperately to make it to October because that's where the money really is. I don't see how they'd get away with such a cover-up, but they are powerful with powerful friends in high places, so if anyone could get away with it, they'd be a good candidate to.

Anyhow, it's not just about how sick Juan Soto himself is. It's also how sick he can make all the people around him, including older coaches, field personnel, etc. Multiply him by eight, multiple again by 30, and I think that would be more than enough to force Baseball to s***can the season.

It's also important to remember just cause you are around, even close, to someone with COVID doesn't guarantee you will be infected.

This is technically true, but the safest approach is to assume that it is guaranteed that if someone is exposed to COVID, they'll be infected. Otherwise, it's gambling.
