It may end being that way.

I'd imagine they'll do some sort of lottery with records from this "season", last season, and maybe 2018 rolled into it somehow.

Or course, that's assuming humans are still around next year.

Given how MLB has has handled the 2021 season, coupled with Detroit sports draft lottery luck, I fully expect to be picking 30th and somehow the yankees or twins is picking first

We have a theory on how the Marlins got it. That's about it. 

Otherwise I agree. Unfortunately, when MLB, coaches, etc. are acting like it's not a big deal, you're going to take fewer precautions. Hopefully that's a wakeup call for the rest of the players. Doesn't seem to be for MLB as they should have made restrictions much more strict by now, but whatever. 

Probably moot anyhow. I don't think there's a season after we find out a bunch more Cards test positive tomorrow. 

 

MLB seems to be ignoring the incubation period. If someone is exposed, they may not test positive from 2 to 10 days. That would basically end the season so it's too inconvenient. Much easier to just play the games and let the players test positive in a couple of weeks. They wouldn't want to endanger those big TV dollars.

I don't expect them to be that secret about it. 

"Where is that Detroit envelope...screw those fans. you know what? Let's get Keith Law up here to announce their picking 30th"

Yesterday's game was postponed. But I'm sure they're all better by now. Governor Whitmer should make St. Louis turn their plane around if they try to come to Michigan. Isolate for 2 weeks with 2 negative tests if you wanna play games. Dumb****es.

Is it bigger or did they just extend the roof out to the field?

Good question. At Cincy you could see they had extended the dugout at least through the camera wells and moved the cameras to the stands. But even with that it isn't going to add that much room.

Sorry, wrong. Even people wearing masks and properly social distancing catch it rather easily. Dr. Fauci tried to explain just how contagious it is. Something like 80X more contagious than the flu.

Sorry, wrong.....Wear mask, social distance AND wash hands very frequently and you cut your chances of exposure considerably. Myself and my wife work in the medical field. Each of us have been around hundreds to a thousand non-family member people. We and the people we work with have not been infected so far (think millions of interactions with all of these people). If the players and staff were following proper protocols to the letter, there would be virtually no infections for players. These organizations have much better care/testing than just about anybody on the face of the planet. Poor decisions by the players and staff members have led to these couple of teams being hit by this.

We'd pick 20th (no astros pick so we move up one spot)...I don't think anyone would have ever thought in 2021 we'd have one of the 9 best records in baseball. 

could be a lottery or

use record over last 162 games

Supposed to rain until 5 PM according to my iPhone weather app. Since doubleheaders are a pain in the rear my guess is they’ll be playing this game as late in the day as necessary

Under normal circumstances sure, but they might not want everyone sitting in the clubhouse for five hours

You know, as smart as Bauer can be sometimes, you'd think he'd have understood the chances of it happening given the weather forecast and all.

Stop tweeting.  Go change your drone propellers.  Make sure to ask someone to turn it off for you first since that on/off button is rocket surgery.

Right now we lead the season series with the Reds 3-1,  if we end up winning does that mean we get to claim Sparky?

Posted for Liston: They can have him
