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.
Is it ironic that the opening game of the season had to be cut short? It’s 2020 and I’m not sure.
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.
Can't be irony if it's completely on point, eh?
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.
Blue Jays to play in Buffalo. Imagine if Buffalo pulls an Oklahoma City and winds up with another team moving in.
There is absolutely nothing good about ESPN's baseball coverage. Just terrible.

That's true of their football too.
I'm shocked folks still watch the channel.
It's almost as if there's no one from ESPN telling the umpires when they're out of commercial break. They miss entire at bats at the beginning of innings.
Yeah ESPN is pretty terrible now. Haven't watch it much since like 2005. Only watch when forced like yesterday with the Giants game vs Dodgers being only shown there.
Totally unreprepared to live in a world where "Lift Every Voice and Sing" is played before a BOSTON RED SOX game.
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.
Bill Murray sings Take Me Out To The Ballgame with a large bear. Yes, that's bear and not beer as I misread it before watching the video.
Man, baseball without a crowd is kind of a bummer...
I hear you. The cutouts are pretty sad but only marginally less sad than empty seats.
Rules cannot trump power -- The Godfather DoctrineBlog
I kinda like the sounds of the game, though, which is something that's normally impossible to hear on a broadcast.
I'm from Baltimore, I'm used to there being no crowd.
I love the no crowd thing. Hopefully, it means I don't have to hear "everybody clap your hands!" again.
1st two games postponed due to + Covid tests on the Marlins. Good first trial to see if Baseball can handle this and keep going. MLB should have postponed yesterdays Marlins v Phills game since they had the 4 known positive tests. Now the Marlins have 8-14 positives depending on reports and the Phills were exposed yesterday during the game.
Clearly, they should cancel the season and award the championship to the team that's scored the most runs so far.
Dodgers' Joe Kelly suspended eight games after last night's retaliation against the Astros. Eight in a sixty game season's a pretty big chunk for getting mad about a team cheating to win a World Series over the team he wasn't on back then.
I was watching Sports Center after the opening day and they had the recap/highlight segment of the Red Sox opening day 13-2 win. The entire 1-minute segment was about how Eovaldi mixed up his jersey for a couple of innings and wore 7 instead of 17, or vice versa. I could care less. They showed zero highlights of any runs being scored, or players hitting. At the end they mentioned the score, and then they were on to the next game. My son and I looked at each other and went, "WTF was that?"

Nate Pearson looking okay.
*Only looks at the shots totals*
Betcha more A's get suspended after today than Astros.
Charging the dugout is stupid but apparently even the Astros hitting coach was talking to Laureano. And getting hit three times in three games is a bit much.
Marcus Stroman opting out after accruing just enough service time this season to become a free agent is a pretty smart move on his part.
Is it though? Being a free agent this offseason is not going to be very good to players. He was also already on the IR and now won't have pitched for a year and a half entering free agency. I sure as heck wouldn't sign him for anything close to what he will likely be asking for.
He had a 12mil salary this year. If I were him I would have just opted out earlier so that contract tolled to 2021. I'd be very surprised if he gets more money next year signing a new contract than he would playing at 12mil and being a FA after 2021.
I guess there's something to be said for getting off the Mets asap though, ha.

Probably depends on how much COVID resets the baseball economy. Based on what other pitchers around the league make, he's clearly worth more than that $12m per year, but again, what're teams going to be willing to give free agents next year if we're in the same place re:covid and an effective vaccine? Given that for most teams gate receipts are dwarfed by tv contracts, it really shouldn't change much. But team owners probably got to become team owners by knowing how to leverage a situation to make themselves richer at the expense of anyone and everyone else.
So I dunno. If I were a young athlete who had already made ~$5m-$10m in my career, I'd probably make the same gamble.
So if my read of Twitter is right, Reds announcer Thom Brennaman used a homophobic slur over a hot, on-air mic and in the process of his apology paused to call a Cincinnati home run. That was not on my list of things that could happen this season.
Curt Schilling immediately jumped to his defense. You know you've been acting despicable if Curt comes to bat for you.
Take two of deez nutz and call me.
You know you've been acting despicable if Curt comes to bat for you.
And usually not very successfully and not because Curt used to be a pitcher.
And then Curt got arrested? XD 2020
