    The second a pitcher walks one batter it’s over 
    Not if it's after 27 batters.  

    Who on earth is keeping a pitcher in AFTER 9 innings ayways?
    Pedro did take a perfect game into the 10th. But yes it's less likely a starter will go more than 5 this season

    I actually think it might be the opposite.  They might ask the pitchers to stay in longer.  Different year, different circumstances.

    With the depth at reliever/taxi squads and abbreviated spring training I think starters throw less than normal, with regularity.

    Will be interesting to see how they play it.

    They won't be stretched out. You might have a ton of injuries. You might see a 4 man rotation though. Sure the Yankees would like to have Cole out there 15 times instead of 12

    6 man rotation will be in play by some teams I might think

    Did some reading this morning and am excited to see ball if they can somehow get this going in less than a month.

    Wondered what the options will be for the online and tv packages.  Will they be clear in what happens if you buy the package and they halt the season?
    Lot of reasons to imagine they are unclear and go for the money grab.

    I'm in for one of the options if they clearly communicate.  
    Still think they are unlikely to get the season going but really want to have this to follow and root for among all of the horrid shit going down.

    I pine for the days when that was even a remote possibility.

    NBA has the best chance since they can at least keep players in a bubble, for the most part. That seems like the best plan. I

     don't see how baseball and football can happen though.

    Manfred: MLB wasn't playing more than 60 games regardless of negotiations
    3h ago

    SUN VALLEY ID - JULY 8 Rob Manfred commissioner of Major League Baseball attends the annual Allen  Company Sun Valley Conference July 8 2016 in Sun Valley Idaho Every July some of the worlds most wealthy and powerful businesspeople from the media finance technology and political spheres converge at the Sun Valley Resort for the exclusive weeklong conference

    Despite all the negotiations, Major League Baseball never had any intention of staging anything longer than a 60-game regular season in 2020.

    "The reality is, we weren't going to play more than 60 games no matter how the negotiations with the players went or any other factor," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said during a Wednesday appearance on AM 570 LA Sports.



    It was reported in May that the league was forming a return-to-play plan that involved an 82-game schedule, At the time, MLB was pursuing a revenue-sharing model that was unpalatable to the Major League Baseball Players Association, which sought the full prorated salaries players were guaranteed in March.

    The MLBPA proposed a season as long as 114 games, as well as expanded postseasons in 2020 and 2021 to help the league recoup lost revenues amid the coronavirus pandemic. MLB rejected the MLBPA's most recent proposal, which involved a 70-game regular season.

    "We're trying to manage something that has proven to be unpredictable and unmanageable. I know it hasn't looked particularly pretty in spots," Manfred added. "Having said that, if we can pull of this 60-game season, I think it was the best we were going to do for our fans, given the course of the virus."

    A few players have opted out of the 2020 campaign since MLB mandated its 60-game return-to-play plan after negotiations with the union fell apart. Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Mike Leake became the first to officially say he would not participate, while Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond penned an emotional letter stating "home (with my family) is where I need to be right now."

    MLB camps officially reopened Wednesday. An official start date for the season has not been announced, but reports have indicated the campaign will begin July 23.

    The thing that gets me is the Mets did this instead of just buying out an almost $6M contract. He stands to make close to $30M in exchange for getting released.

    He has another deferred contract (Baltimore, if I'm not mistaken) that pays him $500K for 25 years. That one started maybe a year or two after he retired.
