60 game schedule.  Spring training starts next week.

10 games against each team in your division, plus 4 games against each team in the opposite leagues division (So AL East will play NL East).

DH in the NL (eww).

30 man rosters.

And Charlie Blackmon from the Rockies has the Rona...

Bet the ratings are going to suck out loud after all the hemming and hawing to get here. No fans in the stands as well. That's going to be a test balloon for other leagues. I'll be surprised if the Rona-worshipers allow anyone to get withing six feet of pleasure for two years.

I watched some EPL over the weekend, and NBC was piping in crowd noise for the TV feed.  Honestly, the lack of fans didn't bother me, although I'm not a big EPL fan... 

And when I say "watched" I really mean, I turned it on, it was live sports, and watched about 5 minutes before taking a nap...

60 games you say?  The Cubs may have a shot!
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

I'm normally one that has no problem with huge contracts and obscene amounts of money many pro athletes make.  The reality is, they wouldn't pay them those sick amounts if the money wasn't there.  It's going somewhere so divvy it up any way you want.

But this back and forth the last few weeks has been a huge turnoff to me.  When there's widespread panic over the Covids and I walk in the Publix and see a bunch of young kids wearing masks and around hundreds of people all day, while making $8.50 an hour, I believe someone bitching about ONLY making $3.9 million to play a few games can kiss my entire ass.
Boy, giraffes are selfish.  Just running around, looking out for #1....getting hit by lightning.....

This is a statement of troof; however, the correct response is....

If you want to keep working here, stay off the drugs.

Re: 2020 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
I’m getting to the point where if they get paid to play it, I’m not gonna watch. 
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Buzz has been watching Bama football for years. Maybe he can give you some pointers.

60 game season is crazy enough.  But, looking at the standings and seeing the Braves at 11-7...the Cubbies at 10-3.....and the Cardinals sitting at 2-3??? 

Those crazy Covid Cards.

I'm happy to have the games cranked back up, but I honestly can't get into cardboard cutouts and the atmosphere sounding like every Marlins home game.  As for my Bravos, they have a solid line up from top to bottom.  But as soon as we lost our ace in Saroka, that was pretty much it.  Our pen is pitching great.  Our starters are teh suxxors.  Other than paying an injured Cole Hamels $18 large to sit at home, they did nothing in the off season to help themselves with the rotation.

Re: 2020 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
The only game I really want to play was vs the White Sox at the Field of Dreams, and that's been postponed.

I don't see how the cards can even get all their games in, even if they could start later this week.

Way too many double-headers needed to make up the ground.  That would destroy the pitching staff.  Didn't you guys already lose Mikolas for the season?
