How about the Cleveland Mistakes?

Watched a lot of baseball, good chunks of Sat and Sunday Brewer and Yankee games. Almost felt normal. The crowd sound guy has a tough job, reacting to every single play.

I still can't stand Joe Buck.

Sources - Marlins cancel game as coronavirus spreads

The Miami Marlins' home opener against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night has been canceled, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan, as coronavirus cases continue to pop up among the team.

Eight more players and two coaches with the Marlins have tested positive for coronavirus, as an outbreak has spread throughout their clubhouse and brought the total of cases in recent days to at least 14, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.

The Marlins remain in Philadelphia and continue to undergo testing after their weekend series there.



This season will not go the distance easily.

I told my wife on Friday that I really don't see the season make all 60 games. With the number of players showing positive, those in the dugouts not wearing masks, breathing heavily, and no distancing
there will more than likely be a major outbreak in some teams.

Watching the Braves/Rays game and they found a way to get a little bit more money.
The back of the pitchers mound doesn't have a team logo, MLB logo, it has a sign for, get this

LOUISIANA HOT SAUCE.

Can we all give players a big round of applause for not spitting? I think I saw it happen once over the weekend, that's practically reflexive.

But I agree, the NBA has their work cut out for them just playing in their Disney bubble. MLB is still traveling, not a good sign if they can't even get through one weekend without grounding teams.

Bob, I think your points are well taken. I haven't seen anyone spit which is of course a good thing. But there are other things that are concerning:

Pitchers licking their fingers to get a grip on the ball.

Some of the celebrations. They shouldn't be that close of course.

And the one that really floors me is in both dugouts you have a dozen or more guys leaning up on the railing standing right next to each other. Some with masks, some not. Not sure why the teams don't try to keep the players away from each other.

And regarding them finishing a 60 game season I agree with you. Just don't see it happening unfortunately.

You've never had my Habanero Puree.
A friend tried to make it and ended up hosing down the kitchen in a hazmat suit. Shouldn't have tried doing it in a blender with dry peppers and no vinegar.

Totally agree, I'm not sure where they have chosen to draw the line. Marlins games through Sunday postponed, 17 positives in the club house. I'm curious what it will take to pull the plug, when is this attempt no longer viable or profitable.

17...And they are still out on the field playing & running....You realize this started with one...and they were able to play. Then 5 and still, they practiced and played....then 12 and they practiced and played...now 17!...and they were still practicing and playing....

They've tested positive and if very few develop symptoms and do not become ill, can they practice and play?

Considering we don't know how sick any of players are or will be, it would be really stupid to speculate regarding a virus that affects each person differently, or how it might affect older managers and umps.

Okay you baseball know it alls, I have a question for you. Made a bet with a buddy. If (and that's a fat if) can the Tiggers win 19 games this season?

$20 bar bet and the bartender wanted in on it so I have $40 on the Tiggers winning 19 games. I mean, they suck but are they THAT bad?

I like the idea of 7 inning doubleheaders, would like to see that when/if real baseball ever returns - makes sense

Johnny Mac deserved to have that ‘86 title - he was great, then fired, leading to the improbable Morgan’s Miracle....
RIP John McNamara

One new rule that I like this year is the relief pitcher minimum. I don't know how many 4+ hour games I watched where there was a parade of guys out of the bull pen in the 6th, 7th, 8th...

Batter w/out equal, blazing speed & a temper to match
Ty Cobb, 68 hits in 137 AB for a .535 BA, the highest ever in a single month (July 1912) - just one of his records that will never be topped - only Yaz & his 23 for 44 in the lat two weeks of ‘67 even comes close

Off the field, had his redeeming qualities but overall, a world-class ****
Not much different on it, but boy could he play

Sox had their best one-month record since 1952, going 20-6 in July 2011

Great point unfortunately. I actually had this conversation yesterday with one of the guys. Assuming they play the season, some teams won't even play 60 games.

Wonder what the record books are going to look like?
