  1. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/30777383/sources-mlbpa-rejects-universal-dh-expanded-playoffs So are both off the table entirely going forward or is it just an opening shot by the NLPA going into negotiations for a new agreement? 2020 thread I know, maybe just change to it to 2021.
  2. Kim, Burnes, Luzardo, and Clevinger. Just need a few wins and QS.
  3. Yeah, hamstring spasm. https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/mets/ny-jacob-degrom-leaves-game-updates-20200917-m2jkukgtsreahhcms7gqoofe4q-story.html
  4. Had slow starts in 2 of 3 leagues in weekly leagues, kept at it anyways, finished strong but too late in a 8 week season.
  5. Starting Thursday or Friday according to Dennis Lin of The Athletic.
  6. Inside the article mentions no further positives as of today. So nothing definite but seems like good news. https://nypost.com/2020/08/23/subway-series-between-yankees-mets-could-get-wacky/?utm_source=url_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site buttons&utm_campaign=site buttons
  7. Didn't have an option in my H2H 10 team leagues, but it's a 8 week regular season with 4 teams making the playoffs. If you're playing for money probably sucks no matter what. If it gets gets shut down at some point for the health of the players and personnel so be it. It's only one season so I'm fine with my set up.
  8. Although a business owner shouldn't be forced to lose more money than necessary because of a pandemic, MLB with their Billionaire owners could see the benefit long term of taking a bigger loss by providing more money to players THIS particular season. Maybe consider more wages THIS particular season as an investment rather than a BIG or BIGGER loss. That said, less revenue going forward due to any backlash by fans is going to hurt players much more than owners. Unfortunate for players.... Should expect Billionaires to leverage their wealth and power to their advantage ALWAYS.

  11. Thursday, May 28, 2020 📰 What you need to know 1. Max Scherzer blasts latest pay cut proposals as MLB, MLBPA continue to disagree during talks ⚾️ Ah, another day and yet another wonderful update on the MLB's dramatic and unbearable strife over the economic approach to a shortened 2020 season. Are we lovi
  12. I understand and others believe exactly how you do regarding politicians and the media, but I get the sense you blame liberal media and liberal politicians for our response and that's where you lose me. The virus is disastrous and because we were not adequately prepared and didn't take more drastic action early enough we were left with limited options and imo was going to be very painful no matter what. Herd immuity mentality response would've been impossible for our leaders to sell to the general public imo. Sure, in hindsight we could have done somethings differently, but in real
  13. Mistakes were made early on which led us down a path with more pain, in death's and economically. We're just not going to totally agree on who is to blame for the mistakes. I've decided not to point fingers anymore. Imo, all we can do now is to learn from our mistakes and try to be more prepared for the next pandemic.
  14. You seem to want to just place blame. So tell me specifically who you feel is responsible for our failures in our response to this pandemic from the beginning to now.
  15. I'm not smart enough to know if our solutions to this pandemic were/are the best course of action. Personally, think too many variables are involved and since nobody has the benefit of crystal ball we can't know for sure. Although second guessing gets tiresome to read and hear for me personally, can see how it might be helpful in making decisions if there is another pandemic like this one in the future.
