  1. Correct which is why Cory has ‘100 save’ games in these sims, they opted for real time over realistic sim
  2. Tbh I don’t even see what was so bad about the pay cut to where they had to apologize and do an about face even if it wasn’t being paid back, since they were cutting their ‘highest’ paid employees, these aren’t the people who are living paycheck to paycheck. Sure Harris and Blitzer can absorb the loss better so it’s a chintzy look but the Twitter mob was railing against cuts for VP’s and GM’s as if it was the arena vendors being cut. This wasn’t particularly out of line compared to most other CEO’s like the president of Whole Foods who’s telling his healthy employees to donate their sick days to the sick people instead of just paying for/absorbing the cost of extra sick days himself.
  3. Are you fvcking kidding me? Welp guess Wacha and Matz can both stay in the rotation now, if we have a season
  4. Bleh welp we're drafting a WR early now.
  5. LOL at people jumping on the owners for a temporary 20% cut of people in high salaried jobs while paying the little guys in full.
  6. It’s not essential obviously, but by the same token if they can fix some roads without endangering themselves or anyone else might as well do it the next few weeks while there’s obviously going to be light traffic most of the day.
  7. Not yet but unfortunately it’s probably only a matter of time until my nurse friend gets it, since their hospital (like most) still doesn’t have enough masks and already several positive cases in their unit. Fortunately she’s in her 30’s so it shouldn’t be debilitating long term but you can’t have the people who we need to take care of everyone else getting sick too.
  8. My 100-game schedule would be simple enough...8 games against division teams and 6 games against everyone else in your league with no interleague. Heh nice, glad he’s doing well. I know he used to post on NYFS too (that board fried out for like a month earlier this year but is back now)
  9. Speaking of the Red Sox and Astros, what happens to the suspensions to Hinch and (eventually) Cora if we don't play at all this year, would they have to sit out 2021 as well since there was no season to be suspended for in 2020? Or would they just take mercy on them cause they've already sat out a year and been fired? After CR's offhand remark in the other folder I am actually starting to think for the first time it's a matter of if, not when we have a season. I wonder when the drop dead date for starting would be, June? They probably need to have around a 100-game season to really be viable, no sports league is literally having half a season or less. Football went 9/16, the NHL went 48/82 and the NBA went 50/82 in their lowest recent seasons, that's about the benchmark for baseball. If you start spring training 2.0 the first two weeks of June, then play 100 games from mid-June on you can end like normal in late September. You can't really push the playoffs back too far into November unless you're gonna go neutral site and play in domes/warm weather cities, which would kinda make a joke of it since that's not what baseball is.
  10. Playing like 30 games in a 2.5 month stretch then sitting out for about six weeks then going right into an 82-game or 70-game, whatever they're trying to squeeze in by starting in November is a severe disadvantage going into the next season and not exactly conducive to good health for teams with long playoff runs.
  11. I think it’s more Favre cause Favre still was good enough to get to pick his spot (after the Jet stopover) and had 1.5 good seasons of football left while Marty when he left was clearly done and had minuscule interest around the league. Brady probably has at least one above average-good year in him since he’s a cyborg but who knows.
  12. Yep this is going to be a Favre type end
  13. Well we got another second tier tackle in George Fant, hopefully Douglas is better at getting the second-tier guys than Maccagnan was.
  14. It is amazing that when we now have more outlets to avoid actual social interaction and still keep up with each other and live our lives (ordering takeout instead of dining out, using Facetime and texting instead of in-person gatherings, shopping remotely), we're less willing to actually use them when it's neccesary.
  15. Yep in an unfortunate way things are probably gonna work out for them, baseball crowds will probably have a post-9/11 type unity to them. Although you do wonder what happens when (if?) baseball finally deigns to announce punishment for the Red Sox on THEIR stuff, what happens then...does it bring back all the feelings about both the Red Sox and Astros? Kinda sucks for the Red Sox they're still in limbo although it hardly matters at this point since they're clearly in rebuild mode after trading Betts and with Sale on the shelf again. Maybe some Red Sox players were found to have lied and they're trying to get punishments for them in order, and that could be a mess, I don't see why it's taking them this long otherwise.
  16. And ESPN/sports talk shows all over the country breathe a sigh of relief...they can at least talk about the NFL 24/7 now during this hiatus for other sports
  17. Yeah truth be told I almost forgot about that now. Alonso himself even got into it with Chris Carlin at the time. He certainly proved last year he and his agents were right and he was ready, though stupidly keeping him down in the minors for a few meaningless games at the end of the 2018 season didn't hurt anyone since the Mets did the right thing in the end and had him play from day one last year without invoking the service time bullsh!t that is STILL a bone of contention between the Cubs and Kris Bryant.
  18. LOL I actually figured if there was one weasel who wouldn't pay up it would be Dolan. I guess the millionaire NBA/NHL players will keep having to do what the billionaire owners should be doing.
  19. On top of the people or teams I feel bad for in a sports sense, it just had to be the season where Rutgers broke out in the Big Ten and was finally about to make the NCAA's again where sports stopped right on the doorstep of the tournament.
  20. I get for the whole year it would be a fair question for someone not as familiar with you, but he phrased it more or less in a unneccesarily snarky way consistent with his posting history IMO. If you didn't take offense that's fine, I won't draw this out except to say if he thinks I'm angry when he's the one that's been screaming alternative facts throughout this thread then again, he's just looking for reactions.
  21. Clearly you're just posting to get reactions now. SH is generally one that does want to go to the majority of games, but of course he and everyone else would be glad to financially get out of attending games during a season that was over by Halloween.
  22. Spring Training is over with, the start of the season delayed by two weeks at least. Probably just as well given how stupidly early this season was beginning. In a barely related note, you gotta love Pete Alonso
  23. Not a mere parade, Ireland shut down all of their St. Patrick's Day celebrations. That's like us shutting down the fourth of July. SH's post above yours put it better than I ever could. Billion dollar industries aren't shutting down as part of a hoax or because of the damn media, the media's such an easy scapegoat for everything. Health organizations around the world aren't parroting the 'this is just the flu' talking point, they're telling people to be on high alert.
  24. One of my friends works in a hospital, and another has a terrible immune system and works in a school - though I doubt they'll be in classes after this week. If anything, I'm more worried about them, and my elderly parents than myself (although I'd prefer not to be a vector for this sh!t). Hell I'd have gone to the game last night if my friends didn't make last minute plans and was going to go to the St. Patrick's parade in my town before that got canceled earlier today as well. I haven't stopped greeting people yet unless they're ill but that's always been true, but I recognize other people might be more distant personally these days vis-a--vis hugs/shaking hands/etc.
