Start of baseball season pushed back to May at the earliest



Major League Baseball delayed the start of its regular season until May at the earliest. The league said in a statement Monday the move was made in accordance with new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention against gatherings of 50 people or more for the next eight weeks.


Last week, the league canceled the rest of its spring training games and delayed opening day for at least two weeks from its original date of March 26. "MLB will keep fans updated on decisions regarding plans for the 2020 schedule in the days and weeks ahead," the league said. "The Clubs remain committed to playing as many games as possible when the season begins."

I wouldn't mind if they played in an empty stadium if the players, staff and umpires are tested clean.

Agreed - but you would have to test everyone entering the ballpark on a routine basis (every couple of days). All it takes is a couple of sick players and everything gets shut down again. The sheer number of tests needed just doesn't exist right now, and frankly I would much rather the tests be given to people that are actually suffering and need them, instead of professional athletes.

How are the Red Sox so damn lucky? You know the phrase, “saved by the bell?”


Well, it looks like they will be saved by a freaking virus.

Uh huh.

China has already lowered the bell on the epidemic. It'll be four weeks for the bell curve to be lowered here.

That's the ten easiest dollars I ever made, sadly.

The first case in China was reported in mid November.  The first case in the US in mid January.  Ignoring the issues of applying the strict quarantine imposed in China here in the US and assuming that the reports of no new cases of person to person transmission in Wuhan this week are true we are looking at mid May as the earliest we can hope it peaks in the US.


Two week abbreviated spring training starting mid June, season starts July 1st?
