to be clear.......

If MLB has an Opening Day July 4th, 2020 and there are no people in the stands, that counts as Opening Day.
this should be done pronto, in all sports. Easy way to start getting things back to normal. If Oaklawn can do it so can these entitled greedy assholes

MLB 2021 people, when's the next NFL game in a current NFL city? Stated another way don you think that the NFL will be subject to the same restrictions causing it to delay beyond the next season?

They might be able start the season after the virus slows down in the summer, but they won't be able to finish it.

But MLB not?!?! Rhetorical question. I realize you're just spitballing.

My predictions are based on Trump easing restrictions around Easter. If he listens to his medical advisors instead (or if a majority of governors ignore Trump's call to return to normal too early), maybe we get every major league to resume in late summer/early fall.

Spitballin' is right, but even fokkin' FOX News is warning against easing restrictions too early: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/co...f-restrictions-eased-top-pentagon-doctor-says

So I’m hearing that players and owners want a 140-150 game season (one double header a week with regular season games in October).

There are some disagreements over the draft and service time.

His medical advisors are not contradicting him. They are saying we'll see after 15 days if an approach of isolating certain areas is feasible. And if so, opening up certain areas that are not widely affected, by possibly Easter. (Keeping more effective, but not as restrictive measures in place).
I don't know why people insist on strawmaning Trump. Everybody who pays attention understands what he means. It just makes theIm look childish.

..btw Pentagon can go fuck itself. We've had plenty of experience with their agenda

btw I very much doubt that the curve can still be going up a month from now. Especially if these wonderful "social distancing" measures have any effect at all. There's just not enough people

First game on June 13, 2020.
If they are ready to play in empty stadiums, they can play in their spring training facilities/smaller stadiums with the possibility of hot weather playing a role in curbing the virus too.

I admire y'alls optimism, I really do.

It takes a whole lot of people to support a baseball game. It's a public gathering even with no one in the crowd.
