Yeah, pretty much.

 
That's my thought, but baseball seems content with magical thinking and a bit of interchangeability for the players.   "We knew this could happen....that's why we have so many extras on the roster" really sounds terrible.

It'll be interesting to see if the Phillies / umpires / others who were around the Marlins pick up anything.  If they infected another team...I think MLB has to pull the plug.


 
Yeah, that's what the sports pundits/writers are pretty much saying. Along with some well-deserved criticism of MLB's handling of things.
I didn't used to spend much time reading the sports pages, but the virus and race issues are making them relevant to more than just sports fans.
Not to mention the enormous economic impact of sports - all the way to the high school level. These crises are really pulling back the curtains on sports programs - for better or worse is not clear.

  Aside from it being just such a monumentally stupid idea it messes with the statistics which we all know are just as integral a part of the game as beer.  They at least have had the decency to call them unearned runs, but pitchers are still picking up losses for runners they didn't put on base.  It occurred the other day the proper way to handle it would be to charge all of the inning starting runners to Rob Manfred and if they turn out to be the winning run then he should get the loss.  I wonder if there's any way we could go about getting that changed.

I had to google about this because I could not believe what I was reading in your post. Oh, and the NL will use DHs. More whackadoo stuff.

Whiskey tango foxtrot.

But it was great to see the piece about Daniel Bard pitching in the MLB again. Best of luck to him!

I was at a AAA game a couple of summers ago and it went extra innings so I was all "hey free baseball" and boy was that ever a letdown.
 
Getting to Wrigley for me involves a four hour car trip each way.  A typical game I'm up at 6:00 am and don't get back home until after midnight.  It's a very long day for an old geezer like me.  In spite of that and the fact that they've cut off our beer there is still very little I enjoy more than bonus baseball and would never dream of leaving early.

Because MLB hates it's fans and doesn't want them to be able to see all of their teams games live I often have to follow the game with their Gameday app.  Recently they redid the Wrigley Field backdrop image they use to reflect recent changes to the park.  The artist probably wasn't a fan.
 

Today's Quiz:  What is wrong with this image?

 
So with great attention to detail they've redone their backdrop image again this year and removed all the fans from the bleachers and even got the number of pennants flying over the scoreboard right this time. I'm mildly impressed.  They should have left a few fans on the rooftops though.

From the not a moment too soon department.
 
  Marquee Sports Network secures a ‘multiple year deal’ with Comcast to carry the Cubs’ TV channel
 
 It looks like it's going to be like the old WGN days again when I got to see all of the Cubs games like God intended.  Of course having an all Cubs all the time network on the tube might mean I'll never leave the house again.
