At least the Astros and Yanks won’t cheat and win.  There’s your silver lining playbook.

When they moved the season start date back, did they shorten the season? Or are they still planning on playing them all?

I believe Opening Day will be June 1st, but you never know.  There will still be a NO FAN Rule in effect.

I think they want to try and fit in the entire season.  Many managers are will to play many doubleheaders.  Not sure the players will like that.

It sucks that the Astros are going to luck out and not have to endure the boos from road teams' fans this year.  I'm sure they'll still remember when baseball's fully back, but the intensity will probably be less.

Mike!

As a diehard A's fan I can't believe this reality.

The one fuckking baseball season where the entire nation was going heckle and rip the Houston Astros, the Universe gives them yet another free pass.

I will never understand it.

But as an A's season ticket holder I will wait for those cheating bastards to come to Oakland.

Scum.

MLB owners approve plan to start season in July, reports say


Major League Baseball (MLB) owners have finalized a plan that may allow the 2020 season to start on Fourth of July weekend, according to multiple outlets, including the New York Times and ESPN.

The season, which was set to start on March 26, was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. MLB owners and league management have agreed upon an 82-game regular season,... according to the reports.

Still need MLBPA approval, and their first reaction has not been good.

I hope they get something worked out. I read the plan was to play 80 (Goose's link says 82) games, basically all in division to cut down on travel. For most teams, I guess, that's twenty games against each other team? Not much variety, but at least it's baseball. Every game a grudge match!

I liked what author Jared Diamond (Germs, Guns, and Steel; How Civilizations Collapse) said: "If there isn't any baseball, the American people will know it's because the billionaires and millionaires couldn't agree."

I heard it's three divisions of ten, with five teams per division from each league, though the reckless CNN didn't mention it.

I'm on the fence though, at least if what I've heard about the universal DH is true.  Baseball is better tha no baseball but NL baseball is better than AL baseball.

There is no way the strongest union in America will agree to any cuts to their per game salaries, even with empty stadiums.

Unions for millionaires, Karl Marx would be thrilled.

No way bud!  I get the purist factor in the NL with pitchers batting.  But in the modern age where everything is faster and bigger, keep your pitcher safe and get him out of the strike zone!!!!

Do you really think I want to watch Dave Stewart bat for the Oakland A's if there was no DH in the AL?

FUCKK THAT!

Give me big Dave Parker or Don Baylor instead.

NL lovers I respect, but give me a break man.
Lay down a bunt?  Pinch hit?  Cool, baseball is like chess.  I get it.

But give me David Ortiz, Edgar Martinez, Paul Molitor or Frank Thomas any day over some frigging pitcher.  WEAK!!!

AMERICAN LEAGUE AND THE OAKLAND A'S FOREVER!
