Given how slow to respond we were and how much our population travels large distances(domestic & international), I'm guessing we pretty much gave away the latter advantage.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I've seen a couple more articles pop up today with doctors saying that intubation is the wrong treatment for a lot of these cases because the lungs are doing a reasonable job of expelling CO2, it's just that the oxygen isn't getting to the blood. That would definitely be interesting for the possibi...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

May is almost certainly too aggressive, if for no other reason than you need to have a reduced ramp up spring training, but I don't think it's that unreasonable an idea. You eliminate the risk of travel, and while yes there are non-players that would need to work to support this, we're almost as clo...

I’m glad you’re still being paid TT I doubt he's diminishing the impact on those hurt by this but rather questioning how impactful the current unemployment is compared to what it will be once we truly know which businesses survive and which ones don't. There will obviously be people returning to th...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I’m a little confused by the breathless attention to the actual unemployment number. We’re in an unprecedented situation where tons of businesses are basically on pause, and the bill congress passed uses unemployment benefits as a primary lever of taking care of workers(I’ve even heard possibly apoc...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

I don't like the idea of scheduled doubleheaders every week and trying to cram as many games as possible in as short a time frame as possible. That's going to lead to injuries and lesser performance and more variance. Injuries? Probably, that's likely the tradeoff for having something resembling a ...
