Cannot believe that MLB does not require masks in the dugout. W.T.F.

   Up until 2019 Strop had really good numbers.   It's natural to think closers and late inning high leverage guys are doing worse than they really are because they're the ones who get to lose the games you thought you had won.  The real problem was Joe continuing to use him in those situations far longer than I would have.  That said I would not be that surprised to see him get his mojo back in the not too distant future, hopefully not while we're playing them.   It's Grimm who really only had the one good year that I was happy to see in a brewers jersey this year.   His ERA is now at 27.0 thanks to the Cubbies.

Yeah, pretty much.

 
That's my thought, but baseball seems content with magical thinking and a bit of interchangeability for the players.   "We knew this could happen....that's why we have so many extras on the roster" really sounds terrible.

It'll be interesting to see if the Phillies / umpires / others who were around the Marlins pick up anything.  If they infected another team...I think MLB has to pull the plug.


 
Yeah, that's what the sports pundits/writers are pretty much saying. Along with some well-deserved criticism of MLB's handling of things.
I didn't used to spend much time reading the sports pages, but the virus and race issues are making them relevant to more than just sports fans.
Not to mention the enormous economic impact of sports - all the way to the high school level. These crises are really pulling back the curtains on sports programs - for better or worse is not clear.

  Aside from it being just such a monumentally stupid idea it messes with the statistics which we all know are just as integral a part of the game as beer.  They at least have had the decency to call them unearned runs, but pitchers are still picking up losses for runners they didn't put on base.  It occurred the other day the proper way to handle it would be to charge all of the inning starting runners to Rob Manfred and if they turn out to be the winning run then he should get the loss.  I wonder if there's any way we could go about getting that changed.

 The starting an inning with a runner on second thing is right up there with the DH in the stupid rules department and the playoffs are going to be all but meaningless, but I have to admit it is kind of nice to have some numbers to look at when I get up again after all this time.
 

I had to google about this because I could not believe what I was reading in your post. Oh, and the NL will use DHs. More whackadoo stuff.

Whiskey tango foxtrot.

But it was great to see the piece about Daniel Bard pitching in the MLB again. Best of luck to him!

Getting to Wrigley for me involves a four hour car trip each way.  A typical game I'm up at 6:00 am and don't get back home until after midnight.  It's a very long day for an old geezer like me.  In spite of that and the fact that they've cut off our beer there is still very little I enjoy more than bonus baseball and would never dream of leaving early.

Because MLB hates it's fans and doesn't want them to be able to see all of their teams games live I often have to follow the game with their Gameday app.  Recently they redid the Wrigley Field backdrop image they use to reflect recent changes to the park.  The artist probably wasn't a fan.
 

Today's Quiz:  What is wrong with this image?

 
So with great attention to detail they've redone their backdrop image again this year and removed all the fans from the bleachers and even got the number of pennants flying over the scoreboard right this time. I'm mildly impressed.  They should have left a few fans on the rooftops though.
