Let's see, so far today Juan Soto's tested positive for COVID-19, Yanks-Nats are in a rain delay, and Kershaw's out with back trouble for the night cap. This is going great.

I wish you guys would stop encouraging him.
RIP Tom Seaver.
I loved the Mets tribute with the dirt on their knee, just as Tom Terrific did when he pitched.
I haven't watched any games but Google seems to think I still like the Rays from when I lived in Florida so I keep seeing scores and they keep winning.
Last weekend I googled MLB standings and they were leading division and only a game out of AL first.
What is happening?

Cardinals legend Lou Brock dies Sunday afternoon at 81
This hurts. A lot.
Lou Brock is the reason I like baseball the way I do. I don't remember the year he broke the SB record, because I was just six in 1974. When I became aware of baseball, it was a countdown. We were counting down the all-time SB record, which he got in '77, and and 3000 hits, which he picked up in '78, when I was 10.
It's why when Pujols was leaving, I would not have been upset if he signed with the Cardinals for what I consider way too much, which he got from the Angels. Those Cardinal teams were awful in the 70's. But I became an intense long term fan because I was there to soak up the excitement of the chase. I know wins and losses matter, but do does creating new young fans, and you need legends to do that. Picking up those milestones in LA ruins the whole thing. I'm sure kids out there will enjoy his runs at records, but it means more for someone who became a star in that city.
Brock was also one of my only autographs. My mom surprised us when we went shopping as she knew Brock was signing autographs at some store. My younger brother actually passed out when he got the autograph. My other brother was behind him, and when Matt fell back, Steve just got out of the way and let him the floor. Which means those carry some fun memories for us.
I even had a freaking Brockabrella and drank BroccaPop!
St. Louis will mourn him as hard as Auggie, I suspect.
I love Lou Brock too. One of my fave players, though I never saw him play.
Brocca Pop? Wow
How did I live before digital distribution of old, cheap games?
You did live before digital distribution of old, cheap games. Now you just play games.
So tonight's San Francisco at San Diego got postponed for as of this post an undisclosed reason.
Edit: Apparently it's a Giants player who tested positive for COVID and no contact tracing has been done.
So the above was a false positive and if things couldn't get more bizarre, the Mariners are playing their home games in San Francisco due to smoke. Also, forty years ago today, this happened. (NSFW language)
The fires are better in SF than Seattle?
oilypenguin: That is a terrible joke and I'd ask you to be ashamed of yourself but you've been around here long enough that I know you'll be proud of it.
detroit20: UptoIsomorphism has it right.
Take the asterisk off the thread title, the White Sox are going to the playoffs!
I thought for a second that was going to be Lee Elia from the Cubs (another classic). I’d forgot about this fantastic Earl. Weaver moment.
Yankees - Red Sox game halted by a fan disturbance. Yep, actual person despite no human fans allowed in the ballpark in the first place.
The fact that he wasn’t naked is disappointing.
The photo the AP chose to accompany the article on the Mets getting eliminated from the playoffs is simultaneously cruel and perfect.
I love America more than any other country in the world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.
Watch me learn to draw.
That is basically my poor girl dog, River, when Teresa has the laser pointer.
Well that was a fun three days. Seeya next year.
Could be worse, could be a Reds fan.
I hate the Yankees. Come on Rays, finish them tomorrow.
That said, credit to the Rays, who just keep on putting together competitive teams on a budget lower than the annual GWJ Secret Santa expenditure.
I think the Rays may have something good going.
Sad yankees lost, happy rays pounding Astros

Rays 1 run short 2 nights in a row. Hope they win tomorrow. Don't want to blow 3-0 and to to game 7.
We could have both LCS' be determined by choking.
Another game 7 tomorrow.
Much better from Rays in game 2. We got a series
I think the blue team will win.
Holy f*cking sh*t what a game. Go Rays!
Arozarena hero all playoffs, sets record. Almost blew it falling down, then catcher drops it. Whew.
/insert Randy Newman song here
Kershaw finally gets one too
Being fangoriously devoured by a gelatinous monster.
