MLB season delayed

Post by Anaxagoras »

So I was just looking to see when the first game of the season would be played, and look what I found:

Opening Day delayed at least 2 weeks; Spring Training games cancelled :freedom:

This is unprecedented.
Major League Baseball has cancelled the remainder of its Spring Training games, also announcing that the start of the 2020 regular season will be delayed by at least two weeks due to the national emergency created by the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision was announced following a call with all 30 Clubs and after consultation with the Major League Baseball Players Association. Opening Day was originally scheduled for Thursday, March 26.

MLB said the action “is being taken in the interests of the safety and well-being of our players, Clubs and our millions of loyal fans.”

The league will continue to evaluate ongoing events leading up to the start of the season. Guidance related to daily operations and workouts will be relayed to Clubs in the coming days.

MLB and its Clubs have been preparing a variety of contingency plans regarding the 2020 regular-season schedule. The league plans to announce the effects on the schedule at an appropriate time, though MLB also said it “will remain flexible as events warrant, with the hope of resuming normal operations as soon as possible.”

Wow. Not just baseball either. The NCAA basketball tournaments have been canceled, PGA events, the NHL season, the NBA season . . .

Worse, they may delay free-agency which means we will not yet know where Tom Brady goes?!!1!

P.S. I, for one, wanted to see how our 5th and 6th starter would fare on Opening Day!

I tried to sell the office "football squares" guy on running a "Tom Brady Squares" thing but all I got was a "Fuck you."

You certainly could with Tom Brady.
