I think you have the right idea following mlbtraderumors, half of the Nats beat writers seem to have preferred the option of taking a year off.

That start date of 7/24 happens to be the one night this entire summer when I have plans. I might have to piss some family members off and watch on my phone.

Baseball for people who don't really like baseball, designed and marketed by people who don't like baseball.


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

The way it's going you may not be watching much that night. 7 Phillies players have tested positive with more tests on their players pending lab results. It's only gonna get worse across MLB. With players testing positive going into a 2 week quarantine that means the quality of baseball is gonna be funny to watch. Better than nothing I guess. Can imagine in September during pennant chases what it'll look like when you have teams with 7 or more players testing positive, quarantining, etc. Btw Charlie Blackmon just tested positive, first MLB "star" to catch it. Why couldnt it have been Snell.

Either that or they've been furloughed or had their hours slashed. Everyone knows how bad things have been over the years for the printed edition of newspapers, and the Covid thing has put a dagger into their digital sports page readership, which was never raking in the cash for them either.

In a league with 1,200 players on the 40 man rosters and hundreds of coaches and trainers there would be positive tests even if every one of them was staying home. Every positive test has the media predicting that the whole season will collapse.

Over half the states are seeing Covid cases rising now. Since some NBA players are already bagging the rest of their season, we'll see if any MLB FA's-to-be just take off this season because 2 months of ball aint worth the risks -- plus some of these guys undoubtedly live in Florida, which is the country's new Covid epicenter:

Notable free agents for 2020-21:

Catcher: J.T. Realmuto, Mike Zunino, Yadier Molina
First base: Yuli Gurriel
Second base: Cesar Hernandez, DJ LeMahieu, Jurickson Profar, Daniel Murphy (mutual option)
Third base: Justin Turner, Zack Cozart, Jake Lamb, Marwin Gonzalez
Shortstop: Marcus Semien, Andrelton Simmons, Jonathan Villar
Outfield: Mookie Betts, George Springer, Yoenis Cespedes, Michael Brantley, Joc Pederson, Jackie Bradley Jr., Jay Bruce, Giancarlo Stanton (opt-out)
Designated hitter: Nelson Cruz
Starting pitchers: Corey Kluber (club option), Trevor Bauer, Robbie Ray, James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, Jake Arrieta (club option), Marcus Stroman, Jose Quintana
Relievers: Blake Treinen, Alex Colome, Andrew Miller (vesting option)

Nats FA's after this season -- about $44 million will come off the books for Uncle Teddy:

Anibal Sanchez 37 $12,000,000
Kurt Suzuki 37 $6,000,000
Adam Eaton 32 $10,500,000
Michael A. Taylor 30 $3,325,000
Asdrubal Cabrera $2,500,000
Sean Doolittle 34 $6,500,000
Ryan Zimmerman $2,000,000
Emilio Bonifacio CF $1,000,000

I had no idea Sanchez was that old, I'd want him to take a big pay cut or move on. He earned every penny in 2019 but he's too old for that salary.

Suzuki would be fine as long as we can get a #1 catcher for the majority of the games. He might need a pay cut too.

With Eaton I'd pick up his option (unless the FA market crashes).

Taylor, Cabrera and Zimmerman are all fine if they'll sign for the same price.

Doolittle is gone. He badly embarrassed ownership over paying the minor league guys. He might have been right but he publicly shamed Mark Lerner. I can't imagine the Nats making him a serious offer.

They list Eaton as 32 but he does not turn 32 until this coming December. The ages they're listing might be for when those guys start playing the '21 season.

At their ages wonder how soon declining bat speed etc becomes a major factor on Suzuki, Zimm and Cabrera.

The DH and the expanded rosters will lead to big changes in roster building. NL teams could not afford many one tool specialists with such short benches. Now they'll be able to have a power guy,a speed guy, a glove. The issue will be price, will guys with tens of millions in career earnings play for $1-2 million a year?

However, FWIW, the death rate is down, and so is the hospitalization rate in most places.

No one in the prone Age of 60+ gives a shit about any of that. They just want to wear masks and hope like hell they dont catch it. Same with the players.
