Something is significantly wrong with the United States.

Compare how the NHL handled this crisis vs MLB.


"Waiting to hear if the 2020 MLB season has been cancelled. Nothing definitive yet. “In jeopardy” seems to be the most texted term to me in the last 30 minutes.
If only Edwin Diaz was in charge; I hear he's wonderful at saving things.   Maybe he could work on it on days when Rick Porcello starts, he won't be needed at the ballpark then.

Glad to see you are well versed in the Mets problems.

Interesting you enjoy a sport with such a militant union
Did someone forget what subforum we're in?

11 players/coaches for the Marlins quarantined after testing positive for Covid.  Team staying in Philly as testing continues.  Orioles leaving Miami as Tuesday's game (Miami's home opener) is cancelled.
Real men of genius :facepalm: .

Somebody in the media is trying to sugar-coat this. It's 12 players and 2 from the staff. If this keeps up, the season will be cancelled and those beautiful BLM signs won't see the light of day anymore...subforum! :bitchslap:

Wait, a Dodgers-Astros bench-clearing  beanball (perceived) incident in a COVID-empty stadium?  Just how stupid are these people?

Dusty Baker face to face yelling at the umpire? Announcers noting that "they're doing it the right way" since they have masks on. :facepalm:

Not a fan of 16 teams in the playoffs.  The regular season—especially such a short one—means nothing now, since more than half the league will make it in the end.  As long as you don’t totally suck, you’re in.

So Joe Kelly gets suspended for more games than any Astro for doing nothing...

Rob Manfred is a gutless f***ing pussy.

The Phillies have canceled all workouts today at Citizens Bank Park after a coach and home clubhouse staffer tested COVID-19 positive.

He wasn't close with any of them. So yes. Nothing. Certainly not worthy of the longest suspension ever given to a relief pitcher. It's the equivalent of a 22 game suspension. That's ridiculous.

Intentionally throwing at people's heads is a shit move by a shit person.

Should Manfred have given longer suspensions to the sign stealing cheating scum.  Yes.  I would have suspended them for a year, or possibly more.   Doesn't excuse throwing at people's heads.  Nothing does.

But he wasn't throwing AT their heads. A pitcher who has made it that far can hit a head, if that's what he's going for.

If we're going to cancel games based on one positive test (which could even be a false positive, the tests aren't perfect), just cancel the season already.  There's far too many gimmicks involved already and 7 inning doubleheaders and the extra inning rule make this too dissimilar to real baseball that any championship should come with an asterisk anyway.

The extra inning and DH rules make me want to vomit but at least it's some baseball.

Sorry bud. Heyman just tweeted multiple positive tests which means the Twins are very possibly infected also.

We know how the other leagues handle this. Let's see what the league run by a militant union does.

The solution is simple. Hub.

Edit,
Manfred just warned union to shape up or season is toast.
