Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

Huh? Attendance is the strawman they've used as the reason for the blackouts forever. The whole point is that if you're in the vicinity of a teams location, they black you out to force you to go to a game. That's quite literally the reason it said on their page for years. Whether it says that now I...

Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

MLB.tv blackouts were never about attendance? I don’t even recall that being floated as an excuse, it’s to prop up local tv deals that bring in a huge chunk of the league’s revenue. Huh? Attendance is the strawman they've used as the reason for the blackouts forever. The whole point is that if you'...

This is pretty good (in terms of a level headed look at the situation) https://twitter.com/FiveThirtyEight/status/1281320576720789504?s=19 also the tweet is not really indicative of the entire tone of the interview. it's not all doom and gloom.

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

The Belgian government just decided that masks will be mandatory in all shops (and churches and a number of other places) from next Saturday. From what I've read here, this wouldn't fly in the US. Little late in the game, no? It's been par for the course in New Jersey, and I believe many other stat...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I would argue that nerdiness likely has an inverse relationship to conservatism. It's not always enough to offset all the old white dude aspect of their identity. But nerds generally like facts. This is a crazy theory to me. Nerds are pissed that women and black people ruined star wars. Nerds are p...

Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

What if the player's case is traced to something outside of his job? It'll still cement the possibility as real (and perceived to be more likely than it is, perhaps) and lead to pulling back. We've made long standing/permanent changes to society in reaction to plenty of unlikely events that just ha...

Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

I'd be pretty shocked if they cancelled. As long as they can find 25 x 30 players to fill the rosters, they're gonna run through something and declare a champion to fulfill the TV contracts. If a player dies from COVID? Nah, if that happens it’s dunzo. What if the player's case is traced to somethi...

i've seen a few anecdotal quotes in some local news stories from hospitals saying that the cases popping up right now aren't as severe as what we were seeing in spring and that they are doing much better in terms of treatment. i guess we'll see soon if/how that bears out in the numbers.

Hawks and the Western teams to play in Edmonton.
