The Corona virus scare seems to be impacting spring training attendance, They Nats are on pace to have a record low. For the last home game it looks like they didn't even publish the number.

The players are now handing out pre autographed cards instead of touching anything handed to them by fans.

A bunch of the guys played golf with Trump today, now there is concern that they are exposed to the Corona virus.

I'd be more concerned about all those guys holding the beer cup snake at the DC Defenders game.

Sounds like that was probably reported on MSDNC by Mister Rachel Maddow. Her/his/its' commitment and dedication to stupidity is commendable.

Bedwetters are crying a river to Boswell, and he's peeing along with them. From today's online chat:

Q: A Bad Look
Boz, Suffice to say that, given my politics, the Nats' visit to the White House, and antics while there, were a bit of a buzzkill for me. I'm not naive - I know what the politics of baseball clubhouses mostly are - but still, it wasn't my favorite. That said: what a TERRIBLE look, for the President and the Nats both, that they're off golfing yesterday in the middle of a national crisis. I know the Nats are just ballplayers and spring training is long and boring... but people are DYING, while the government dithers. Indian Wells (tennis' "fifth major", just down the road, is CANCELLED. It seems pretty likely there'll be real disruptions to the Major League season. I'm not asking the Nats to adopt my politics, but goodness, *read the room* folks.

A: Thomas Boswell
You make a very good point about "read the room."

But there is another side. Sort of. I think --to a degree-- I understand the feelings of some of the players. I've been lucky enough to be invited with my wife to the WH by four Presidents (both parties) over the last 40 years, at least two of whom I thought were doing a very poor job. (With hindsight, I'd have to admit that they were both doing better than I thought they were --in other words, I wasn't so smart in real-time evaluation.) I accepted for every one of them, regardless of policies. In part, I was curious to meet them, have a conversation and observe them up close.

If you had a chance to have a meal with U.S. Grant and Robert E. Lee in 1864 wouldn't you accept both invitations because you'd want to get a good close look --and get a feel of-- both of them, even though you probably thought at least one of them was profoundly wrong?

I understand that history may place Trump in a different category because he is so extreme in so many ways. Perhaps it already has. But I don't demand that pro ballplayers make such distinctions. I'm in a "live and let live" mood today.

I will say this: When they are 50, some of them may have changed their political views --or FORMED firm political views for the first time in their lives-- and look back with a cringe that they were in that Sunday golf group photo. (And I bet some others will still be proud of it.)

I went out yesterday, saw a movie, went to a restaurant, hit the grocery store...gosh, how selfish of me. People are DYING. What was I thinking.

Boz was still bashing the Covington kids after the full video revealed that they were the ones who were approached and taunted. Screw him.

Anyone like the dude in his chat who blows a gasket because their favorite athlete or celeb or whatever has a different political belief than they do, needs to either grow up or get a thicker skin.

Impervious to facts.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

MLB has banned reporters in clubhouses and getting within six feet of players during press availability. Maybe things will go back to the but the league would be happy to exert more control over the message and to give their in house reporting staff an edge over the media.

So Ainsley Earhardt cannot get within 6 feet of the players. I would be pissed if I was them.
