Crazy with no sports. Talked to my wife last night.  Apparently works in HR. Nice girl. 

Giancarlo Stanton just sprained his wrist washing his hands

This is the rant of someone who’s never had to sacrifice anything or even think about anyone other than themself. Just grotesque.

Did Rotoworld close it's doors?  I noticed there haven't been any blurbs since late last night.  

Yeah that is weird.  Even if Rotoworld told employees to stay home you can update this stuff from home so don't know what is going on.

I’m in a league full of boomers, hoping COVID-19 will deliver me my first championship! 

I’ve got one guy in my league who is “at-risk” and decided he wanted to limit contact as much as possible. We hold a live draft every season. This will be the first where we don’t meet.

What is moving to a different stadium going to accomplish? Just keep the fans out. You move the game to somewhere "safe" like Nowheresville North Dakota and nobody is going to be coming anyway.

History always blames people who don't do enough.  Better to do too much.

I guess I dont understand why we didnt do this for H1N1 or the seasonal flu. I feel like I'm being naive, so my confusion is sincere.

100% correct. People make fun of the Y2K panic now but part of the reason it turned into a ho-hum nothing to see here event is due to the level of work and preparation taken beforehand.

Keep in mind the mortality rate is going to be higher because theres going to be people out there who get Coronavirus and dont even know it, and thus wouldnt factor into that calc.

Recent news reports have shown a CDC estimate of 80,000 total flu deaths in the U.S. in the past year, based on a different method of statistical analysis that tries to assess where flu may have been a factor in a person’s death even if it isn’t listed on a death certificate. More precise figures, in which flu is specifically listed as a cause of death, shows 15,541 fatalities from Oct. 1, 2017, through early September (the most recent report available).  Nearly 80 percent of those who died from flu were 65 or older — 12,230 — a significant increase over recent years.

At any rate, I need to do more reading on it. The issue might just be that theres no vaccine yet, which is making it bad right now. 

I'll stop posting on this until I study haha. It is a strange and maybe scary phenomenon, but maybe it is being overblown too. The gray area I do think warrants being conservative.

The Mariners originally were going to move it because the governor of Washington state has banned the gathering of crowds greater than 250 people therefore holding it in Arizona spring training facility instead.  Which is a Mariners-related facility.  But at the rate it is going crowds may be banned in Arizona by the time Opening Day arrives anyway.

Seattle bans gatherings of 250 or more.  Mariners gathering data to see if they can still hold games in March and April because that’s generally cut off of people who actually show up.

Now I'm not sure if you are being serious or joking. Well done. I think.

 

Serious.  But it won't matter what I say on an internet forum.  My stance remains the same.  Prepare, don't panic...  And respect

Do you not think people don't report that they have the flu?
