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

I mean, what's the alternative here? If you're a state that wasn't hit to levels of NY/NJ crisis in the opening wave, you're probably facing level cases rather than trending downward. Which means that whether you open up today, two months from now, or six months from now, the virus will still be the...

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

As the world's foremost proponent of the 1 game wild card series, and the actual originator of the idea, I have to say it's kind of pointless to have it this year. There's going to be no atmosphere in an empty stadium and that immediate elimination game excitement is the best part about it. If they...

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

The playoff format and the one game play-in was the only good idea that the league has come up with since the DH, so of course they're going to kill it.

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

It's just monitoring vitals, which should usually give you a hint that something is wrong a few days before it would show up on a PCR test or before obvious symptoms start. It won't catch everything, but it's not nothing.

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

Last I saw, CDC revised their IFR estimate from 1.0 to 0.75 recently. Most estimates are between 0.5 and 1 right now, and closer to the lower end of that. There’s been some discussion that the virus has mutated to a weaker form, but no evidence has been discovered other than generally better results...

It's true in either case this time, but I really wish headline writers would stop using 'significantly' like this.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I wanted that Sosa trade so bad. I remember listening to the Score for updates every day toward the end of July, and they kept playing “should I stay or should I go.”

The only deadline deals I wanted more were Randy Johnson in 1998 and Nomar in 2003

A lot of things out here (north Orange County, Calif.) have been open before what they were supposed to be according to the reported rules, but they seem to have local permission, even though it's not supposed to work that way. Locals can be more strict but never less strict than state rules. I thin...

Even at 50 games, I'm still going to decide halfway through that it's too long and zone out until the playoffs.

Surely it will get picked up somewhere. That stuff is still too popular. I'm surprised OANN hasn't spun it of into a 24-hour Cops channel yet.

Restructuring police will go a long way toward young black men not being handed lifetime criminal records unjustly from an early age, which is one factor of poverty.

Not more than a couple of times that I can recall. She hasn't been feeling great. If it is COVID, it's definitely lingered for a long time, she was just starting to feel it when we went on lockdown.
