If the GOP w/publicize the Sanders-Biden Dem platform, they'd get more votes, too, particularly from wonen. It's scary.

The season is getting more bizarre with additional details like this, which could cost a WS for a team.

With Welington Castro out, wondered if Rizzo was gonna check in on Jose Lobaton for emergency catcher depth. But he signed with Cubs yesterday.

It looks like there is some kind of negotiation going on.

If things are better come September 15 (this year's postseason eligibility deadline), there might be a way. As of now, there isn't, but they're talking about it.

Looked at a usa today poll today that claimed that Biden was up by 15 points...... they called 24% republicans, 34% dem , 34% indepedent and 7% OTHER.....looked like they called a bunch of black and hispanic women.....apparently the Trump campaign believes that he will get 14% of the black vote and more than that of the hispanic vote.... if that happens he'll win in a landslide.....

Just about all of the whites that I know and some of the blacks are fed up with the BLM hate group.....

excerpt this morning from mlbtraderumours --

there is a notable carve-out for those players that are deemed personally “high-risk” for coronavirus infection. Such players — who receive salary and service time even if they opt out — are permitted to submit a request to return. Per Jayson Stark, there’s some kind of process involving team physicians and a joint committee to determine whether to honor the request. (Precisely what steps are required and what factors are considered isn’t entirely clear.)

So, what of players not placed in the personal “high-risk” category? They’ve got to make an in-or-out choice, for the moment. But Stark notes that there has at least been some amount of chatter surrounding the idea of creating a path back to participation in 2020. Again, it’s not clear what that might entail — e.g., whether the player would need to demonstrate some change in circumstance to justify the change of heart.

A NYT guy named Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer for his reporting on the 1930's Ukraine famine manufactured by Stalin and his Communist regime. Covered up the murder of 7-10 million people. As of 2017 they still hadn't stripped him of the award.

I asked an NL GM if a player who has opted out from the season if he could opt back in say in mid-september if team was in a post-season position. He said that issue has not been clarified yet by the league and union.


Wonder who the NL GM was that Bowden called? Interesting that Zimmerman and Ross could end up being eligible to rejoin the team the day before the playoff roster requirement.

Hitting coach Kevin Long just got out of quarantine. That 14 day waiting period that DC is mandating for anyone exposed to a potential Covid carrier is ridiculous and can't be legal. How can the city prevent people from earning a living just because they might have been exposed. At most a week after exposure should be plenty of time if you have no symptoms, particularly if you test negative.

The Nats are providing the players with pre-made meals at home and on the road so they don't have to go out to eat. (More jobs created by the players returning.)

Ali Modami has opted out for the season, he's the batting practice pitcher, known for his tireless arm. Not a familiar name but probably a familiar face for most fans. I'm not sure how easy it is to replace a human pitching machine.

Funny comment from Hyde: "We’re here quite a bit and we still have 40-some guys here, so our days are pretty full here. But we’re very aware of what’s happening down there. We’ll obviously see video, we’ll see guys throw, et cetera. But I’m not sure how much we can physically get down there.”

Bowie stadium is about 20 superhighway miles from Camden Yards. That's an average Maryland commute.

She’s too nice to them, even now. Sadly, this is exactly what I expect from the paper that buried the Holocaust (while getting the Ochses and Sulzbergers out), lied for Stalin, printed Jayson Blair’s lies until they were caught doing so, and has committed so many other depradations against journalism.
