2020 MLB Thread

Recommended Posts

On the plus side the Angels are still at .500. Usually by April 30 they are 8 games under, so they are ahead of the curve this year.

https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-2020-season-update-owners-will-not-approve-more-than-60-games-players-will-likely-vote-saturday/

 

Today the MLB players will vote on proposed 60 game season with 16 making the playoffs.  FINAL OFFER.    And if rejected the commissioner, Manfred, can simply invoke his power and set the schedule.

^^ Another offer, another deal that will get rejected by the players union...  :rolleyes:

I have to try and find out if the decision is in?  i hear if they reject it Manfred can simply write the schedule?  Proposed 16 teams to make playoffs.  Maybe my O's would get in?  Or not.

At the time of this post the vote is not yet in.  It was supposed to happen yesterday

Yes, I read that there will be a 2020 Baseball Season.  However, for only 60 games and with no spectators. That Sucks.  Also there will be 16 teams to make the Playoffs.  I have NO doubt that the Saint Louis Cardinals will be one of those Teams.

Go Cardinals.  

Good Luck to You your Baltimore Orioles.

Actually, Good Luck to everyone on this Topic and Your favorite Team.

16 teams in the playoffs now-- I think my first impulse is to yawn and call bullshit; like the NBA playoffs aren't boring enough with 16. Oh well, ball will be played come July, if the article I read is accurate....

Here we go.  Good to see you are healthy.  Many are not. `Maybe the Orioles can sneak in?  Maybe not.  But when John Means pitch's they are in every game

Lets see how the Houston Astros are treated?  They dodged a bullet.  If Covid helped anyone its the Houston Astros who were going to catch hell.  Now if these games are in a Hub city they dodge another bullet. But if they go to Yankee stadium?  Yikes. The Boo birds will be out in force

Admittedly, I haven't been paying really close attention, but I thought there would be no fans at these games.  So, the Astros dodge yet another bullet...

I couldn't give a rat's ass about baseball or any sport this year. Chuck it all and wait until 2021. Who wants to see sports played in an antiseptic environment without any fans involved?

Maybe you are correct?  I thought they were going to try limited attendance?  NY is going to have games here from what I heard?

Agreed. Racing has got it stuff together and I’m enjoying the hell out of it. UFC too. But NBA, MLB, NHL all need to hang it up for the season. Hopefully NFL can have something...

Things could’ve been so different, if...

July 1 and the Angels are still at .500. Given the results of the past decade, I consider that progress.

Are they playing in their own cities?  Not getting much info

I believe so.  I read that the Cardinals are turning Busch stadium into their Spring Training camp.

Checked ESPN's webpage--nothing set yet as far as team schedules, but I believe they are still shooting for the 24th as the opener; Yanks vs. the Nats. Should be interesting with no fans in the seats or limited seating...

 

Whatever approach MLB wants to take, i'm ready for ball to be played, even with some of the insipid changes they've made....
