Nah, JCA would have moved/deleted it.    :)

He’s “working” from home so he needs something to do anyway. :)

Scott Boras has submitted 2 proposals to MLB on plans to resume baseball in June and have the Series around Christmas playing it in SoCal or domed stadiums.

MLB is negotiating with the union about how to handle service time.

Seems kind of dumb to route every player through a single stadium.  One positive case of a player who travels through there puts the whole season on hold again.

Not just Chase stadium, but Chase + 10 spring training facilities.

Implementing an electronic strike zone to allow the plate umpire to maintain sufficient distance from the catcher and batter

• No mound visits from the catcher or pitching coach

• Seven-inning doubleheaders, which with an earlier-than-expected start date could allow baseball to come closer to a full 162-game season

• Regular use of on-field microphones by players, as an added bonus for TV viewers

• Sitting in the empty stands 6 feet apart -- the recommended social-distancing space -- instead of in a dugout

if they're going to do Arizona, I dlm't see why they wouldn't follow the big3 route and test everyone and then isolate everyone

Yea, I don't see now that is any worse than having them travel to different cities.

I wonder what game times would be like?  Morning and evening double headers in the outdoor stadiums?   I can't see them playing in the heat of the day by June.

I wonder if they could change things up if the instant tests are ready in a few weeks, just test everyone prior to every game.  The Abbott labs test that was just approved gives results in less than 15 minutes.

if they're testing hundreds of mlb players on a daily basis, they better be prepared for a ton of backlash if there are still stories about nurses not being able to get tested
