I wasn't able to get my dog an appointment at the groomer's until June 3rd. He currently looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
This is just a preview of 18 months from now. The Basic Agreement expires at 11:59 PM on December 1, 2021. Wanna bet that 30 seconds later, MLB imposes a lockout? The Owners’ original proposal after backing out of the March agreement was a 50-50 revenue split. The PA rightly saw that as a precursor to a salary cap. Those negotiations are going to be ugly.Looks like MLB and union are not close to agreeing on pay. Maybe NHL won't be only league to miss a whole season.
Baseball's labor negotiations are almost always ugly. Which is fine. Their union actually works to protect their players, unlike some others I could name ...This is just a preview of 18 months from now. The Basic Agreement expires at 11:59 PM on December 1, 2021.

What others do shouldn't be any of your concern, as it does not affect you. I'm already so sick and tired of so many people having a holier than though attitude about "re-opening". Stay home if you choose, It's YOUR choice. And then shut up about it. If you have the means to stay locked inside your home for 6 more months, then do so. But quit trying to publically shame people who chose differently. Some people don'thave that option. Some are forced into being out and about. What happened to live and let live?I am OK with people doing whatever they want unless it is negative to me. And don't abuse people or animals. Want to marry a tree? Go right ahead. Go ahead and smoke pot. Living in a cave is fine. And so on . All these people getting together could be a problem for me . As I said I am diabetic and over 50.
I’m not deciding anything. The government’s most basic responsibility is protecting its citizens. All of us. Sweden stayed open. They have among the highest per capita death rates in the world. And for what? Their economy is still going to shrink by 7-10% according to their central bank. And they aren’t even close to achieving herd immunity, even in Stockholm. So what did staying open get them?You don't get to decide how everyone else lives their lives. If you're paranoid of getting Covid, stay home. But many people either don't have the option or don't want to. And many people are asymptomatic and staying that way. Consider that a good thing. People aren't getting sick and dying like many assume they would. you don't get to decide how anyone else lives their life. Period. What's next, taking every car off the road?
Yeah, there is going to be a bloodletting in minor league baseball. MLB already had a plan on the table to shrink the minors by about 1/4, by eliminating teams from their development structure. This only exacerbates it. Some of the teams, Seattle among them, are paying minor league players through the end of August, when the minor league season typically ends anyway. But the Mariners also released 30 players, which typically happens around the draft anyway, to make room for drafted players.Minor league baseball cutting 1000 players and more cuts to come. Maybe they will keep AAA and AA but anyone else is probably out of a job at least for this year.
At least 5 Women’s National Team opposed the plan, but most are undecided until more details are released. Alex Morgan just had a baby, so she was going to be out for a while anyway.with the new plan they had before the virus AAA, AA and A were going to stay. Everything else was going to be cut. Those lower level teams would have to fold or go independent - meaning no tie to MLB teams. There are already independent teams so there will be more of them. Around here Burlington Royals are rookie league so they likely have to go independent. Holly Springs summer college team probably won't have a season this year .
NWSL (Courage soccer) is having a tournament in Utah instead of a season. Players can opt out of the tournament if they have health or safety concerns. The players’ union negotiated salary guarantees if they play in the tournament or not.
