    I watched the Trump thing live, I heard "Garrett Bettman" not Gary Bettman.

    I know a great place where they can all play. It's a quaint spot in Iowa. Hard to find, but once you're there, it's heaven. Once the game is done, the players can recede into the corn fields to rest comfortably. If they make this happen, both the local economy and land owner will benefit, seeing as how he plowed over most of his crop. #gothedistance #ArchieGraham #moonlight

    Leagues like to take "season disruptions" and implement new rules. DH making its way to the NL is huge.

    Opening up Baseball for a "Morale boost" is the wrong reason to open up baseball.

    If that was the only reason, perhaps, but it isn't.

    From the article, it sounds like Mitch McConnell thinks so:

    “I called the commissioner of baseball a couple of weeks ago and I said, ‘America needs baseball. It’s the sign of getting back to normal. Any chance?’” McConnell said. He added, “It would be a great morale booster for the country and an indication that we’re going to begin to get back to normal.”

    He wants baseball open for a morale boost. I'm all for opening things up IF it's safe. Things can be done for sports, but it's up to the players/teams if they are willing to make the sacrifices.

    Following a little with what they say here, almost all the competitions worldwide have postponed their championships due to the care of the players, not with this I say that all stopped by formula 1 have postponed the championship, the nascar series by the other side will return to activity on Sunday May 17 with a competition without an audience, the WNBA has also postponed its championships.

    My whole understanding of negotiating has been turned upside down with how the MLB and MLBPA are negotiating on the season.

    MLB proposed 82 game season,

    MLBPA countered with 114 game season,

    MLB countered with 50 game season.


    Don't negotiating sides start far apart and then work towards the middle grounds? This one started in the middle and has worked outwards... Interesting to see what happens next.

    Yes, I understand that there is more to it then just the scheduled number of games.

    And how about the 3 Division system? AL East and NL East combined... guess by Braves are gonna have to beat up on the Yanks all year!
