I wonder if they make changes to reduce the amount of games. Do we really want the World Series being played in November, especially when there is a decent chance of being in a city that could have winter weather at that time?
It's either shortening the season or they might have to play at a neutral site in a warm weather place.
I'm pretty disappointed with this. I was hoping they would at least play the first few weeks to a month with empty stadiums since it would have given the Pirates an edge as they've been doing it for decades already
They play 100 + games in regular season. If they cancel 60 games for every team, its not such big deal.

Yeah I was wondering what happens when action gets underway, they obviously can’t just start the season right away and there will probably have to be another “mini” spring training period
Will they cover the spanktravision tabs too?
And that is only part of the reason the Giants banned him.
If the Democrats were as diabolical as Huff seems to think then they wouldn't have allowed the economy to reach "record highs" in the first place.
Do networks get some kind of refund from all the loss of revenue?
Depending on how long this goes on, I wonder if they would be willing to schedule some doubleheaders to make games up. Perhaps extend the rosters to 30 for the season to handle the extra workload.
What an absolute nut job.
Go put some panties on your head, f***ing psycho.
I'd imagine we'd just see a very shortened season, especially if this doesn't get wrapped up quickly. If the season doesn't get started till June/July, which at this point is a reasonable assumption for how long we could be out, then I don't see anyway that they could have enough double-headers to make up for the lost games that the players would agree to. At that point, they'd need to decide if they create a new schedule or just roll with what they got. Maybe you create an 81 game schedule or 108 and play 1/2 or 2/3 of a full season.
Baseball is dying a slow and painful death anyways.
Almost all contracts out there have clauses for situations like this, so I'd imagine they would.
I'm just rolling my eyes at all the bad political takes going on. The only things I'm worried about are health of people and the economic fallout. The people at higher risk of dying and the individuals that are going to be losing their jobs or have their incomes cut severely. People on both sides of the political spectrum got caught with their pants down around the world, but this is the time to get together to make the situation better, and lets leave conspiracy theories at the door.
I doubt we see any form of baseball until July, even that may be optimistic, up until few days ago I was hopeful by Memorial Day but no chance, this is spreading fast
