Run a baseball blog, Tom. It will be fun. You can talk about baseball all the time. I wish they would have told me that baseball might disappear.
I’m less hopeful about baseball coming back when I read about the number of states that are ‘under reporting’ their numbers because they don’t want the president to look bad. I figure if they don’t want him to look bad, get him to stop putting orange makeup on each day, but don’t lie.
Florida fired a woman reporting the numbers because she wouldn’t lie.
The lying helps cause things like this.
I like that we are finally seeing reporters question the owners statements. A league that incentivized tanking is claiming poverty and it takes this long to start questioning things the owners say.
“Average salary has fallen the last two years. The Royals with the fourth lowest attendance in the game were sold for $1 billion. Now, after four seasons of success through tanking, MLB’s position is that playing without fans is a financial catastrophe.” https://t.co/fjPvy5hfBR— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) May 19, 2020

This is unbelievable.
Starling Marte’s wife died unexpectedly today. She broke her ankle and was in the hospital and said to be awaiting surgery when she passed. Best wishes to Starling, who just announced the death.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) May 19, 2020
If anyone reads it and wants to review it for us, that would be great.
Furloughing is a term I haven’t heard in this context until this pandemic.
Angels are indeed furloughing many employees in June. Other teams are expected to do so as well. https://t.co/KpOlg4s9mF— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) May 19, 2020
