Re: Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

Deterrents to the spread of Corona Virus in PC Leagues could include

1) All Free Agents would be Locked, no need to introduce More Players, who could be carriers, into the majors

2) Injuries should be cranked up to the max allowed - These guys with High Fevers COULD be carriers - Keep them away from the Park!

3) Remove the need to actually TAG a runner out, if he is in the general vicinity of a fielder holding the ball - he's OUT - Let's keep contact between players down.

4) All Domed Stadiums MUST be opened, to allow fresh Air and not trap contamination - as a result all Parks would now have BIG BOOST to all Fields

5) Hot Dogs and drinks must be purchased between innings and directly from the Vendor, no more passing of wrapped foods down the row - reduces the risk of communicating the Virus.

All frivolity aside, is there perhaps MORE to this Virus then we are being told? I think that the real fear is that the Virus could morph into a MUCH deadlier version or a more a version more resistant to attempts to eradicate it.

Re: Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

NHL and Pro Soccer may follow - I'm worried about the start of MLB. I have Dodger tickets in peril.

I think the virus has affected Pennent Chase. Half my leagues are at a stand still!

Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

1st off, if the NBA can suspend play MLB is basically FORCED to- especially in Spring Training where the games are meaningless except for evaluating players and the added fact that most of the attendees are in the danger zone in age.

I am willing to bet that Opening Day gets at the least, pushed back. that could lead to a condensed season or " GASP" playing some doubleheaders again, and not a Day night split bill to maximize revenues either, REAL Doubleheaders.

However these over paid, spoiled Brat's, will never go for it and claim it violates their CBA, as an Owner I would say that if the season gets cut from 162 to 120 games that you forfeit that 25% of your salary or play Double headers.

But they have to do something - But Sheik the Governor of California has already recommended canceling gatherings of more than 250 people- that's 6 teams displaced SF, LA, Anaheim, Oakland, San Diego in California and also Seattle - something has to give.

And it's official, MLB has suspended Spring training and it will inevitably at least delay the start of the 2020 Season-

Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

It sucks but it’s smart. Need to keep it from spreading to everyone first. My son had a big school travel competition in April cancelled (by the location, not the school). Really sucks, but smart. Look at Rudy Gobert, who was making light of it days ago, touching all his teammates stuff, touching reporters microphones, and now it’s confirmed he has it (and at least one teammate). That’s just being a jerk, and a stupid one. Sucks to disrupt everyone’s lives but need to control the potential spread then get back to normal lives later on.

Anyway, coronavirus plus sports = emptiness

Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

MLB on verge on canceling spring training and delaying the season, if it happens most likely season will not start until July, need 3 to 4 weeks of spring training before season begins. Season will be very short if there is even a season

Re: Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

NCAA tourney cancelled

Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

one word for rudy gobert-karma

Re: Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

Let us pray for everyone in sports, everyone here on PC, and indeed all of humanity - this is a time for everyone to come together, regardless of political affiliation, and prioritize what's import-ant , the health and well-being of all humans worldwide

Re: Coronavirus sports= what?

On the bright side, the virus is fantastic news for almost every other species on the planet, not to mention the atmosphere.
