MLB to resume 2020 season in July


Recommended Posts

I heard that the expanded playoffs was rejected by the players. Why? I know why owners would want expanded playoffs but my first thought would be that players would want it too so why would they say no to that?

It makes ZERO sense - it'd have been expanded playoffs AND they'd have gotten a share of the revenue from those extra playoff games.  Just stupid.

So 10 games each vs ATL, WSH, NYM, and PHI, and 4 games each vs NYY, BOS, BAL, TOR, TB... Marlins are fucked.

I think we’ll play Tampa more than the other AL teams. But yeah, still fucked.

Kinda refreshing my memory on the team and the roster today and damn I almost forgot how improved we looked heading into 2020... I think most people are gonna assume this is the same shitty Marlins team of the last few seasons but this could be a surprisingly fun team to watch at the very least. This awkward way of the 2020 season creeping up on people might really surprise whoever watches the Marlins.

Saw the marlinsbaseball IG post and totally forgot we had Matt Joyce. Definitely excited to see what him, Aguilar, Dickerson, and Villar can do.

Teams can play up to 3 spring training games but they're making it sound like if they play and who they play and scheduling those games is up to the teams to figure out. Sounds like teams have to call each other up and make their own spring training game schedules.

I can see it now....

 

Mike Hill:  Hey Alex, want our teams to play tomorrow?

Alex Anthopolous:  Nah

Mike Hill:  Oh....ok.......bye then. *click* 

Hill calls back. "You know our CEO is Derek Jeter now, right?"

AA: "Oh, shit. I'm sorry, m'lord. Please don't report me to the authorities. I can't have me knickerbockers taken. Bowl of soup upon arrival? Only the best for the King, gov'nah. That's 'bout roight, innit? Hang on a tick. (Background) OI! I'M USIN' ME TELECOMMUNICATION DEVOICE! POIPE DOWN! (Back to call) Soary aboot that."

Hill: "... the fuck is wrong with you?" *click*
