We went over to visit with friends and had a bit to drink, I’m moving slowly this morning.
There isn’t much for positive news out there.
“I can tell you that we expect a lot of positive tests,” Shapiro said. “As testing goes up, the numbers go up. So, if we’re testing every single person at intake, I can’t characterize what it means, but I would expect a large number of positive tests. That’s going to be part of the transition process into creating the closed environment as much as possible around our players.”
I hate terms like ‘a lot’. My definition of a lot may be different than Shapiro’s.
There are other bit:
- They figure to have an answer of where they will practice and play on Monday.
- They still don’t know how many players will ‘opt out’ of the season. Players who are ‘high-risk’ can sit and still get paid. Players with family members who are high-risk have a tougher choice.
- The makeup of the 60-man roster is still up in the air. Will Jordan Groshans or Alek Manoah get a spot just to let them workout with some players?
- The Jays are going to pay minor league players until Sept 7.
This continues to be scary stuff.
Multiple Texas Rangers employees have tested positive for the coronavirus, and other employees tell ESPN they have felt pressure to work at the team's new stadium. Their hope: amid the outbreak in Texas, the Rangers allow them to work from home.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) June 27, 2020
The Star has a very nice story on Tony Fernandez. You want something to make you feel good, this is it.
Not that I’m worried or anything, but I would love the Jays to announce signing Austin Martin.
