    4 Red Sox players test positive for COVID-19

    The positive rate in Massachusetts (only testing people with symptoms or who have been in contact with a confirmed COVID case) is like only 1.8%. So, I am surprised the MLB number is as high as it is. You'd think that this group of people, with resources at their disposal in the top 1% of...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    Not much information, unfortunately. Total speculation here, but I'd think if even just 2 people tested positive for Covid (players or non-players) that might be enough for them to shut down a facility. So, maybe the impact on the team isn't that great.

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    I think the different pace of the outbreaks across the US makes the curve look different. Massachusetts for example, looks like Germany, Italy, etc. Meanwhile, there were a number of states that had very few cases earlier and are now hitting their peak.

    Restraining order issued against David Ortiz

    I didn't follow the story that closely, but I remember reading something about how people in DR felt that the government conclusion was laughable. The other guy that DO was with is like 100 lbs less than him or something.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    I don't really care about whether they play this year except for one, really big, Red Sox specific reason. If they don't play, the luxury tax doesn't reset, and we go into the 2021 season with even more discussions about how they trim payroll. Unfortunately in that case (and I realize this is a...

    2020 NBA Draft

    I guess discussion of next season won't really start in earnest until they have an agreement to start this season, but a draft in mid October puts that happening after training camp (and the preseason) usually starts. Last year the first games were about the 3rd week of October, I believe. If...

    2020 NBA Draft

    So, it seems like your record in the seeding games impacts whether or not you are in the lottery, but aside from that, doesn't impact your lottery chances (the slots are based entirely on the W/L records already in the books).

    Memphis Grizzlies 2019-2020

    I would doubt they would change anything with the draft. Teams have worked hard all season to suck. It wouldn't be fair for them to go out and win one series and all of a sudden they are out of the lottery :-)

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    How is this going to impact the usual off-season calendar and the start of next season? Do they push back the start of the next season by a little bit?

    2020 Pats: Bengals Coach Implies Patriots Taping Play Signals

    They should pre-emptively open up investigations on all the teams, because you might never know when something could come up in the future.

    Mookie Betts 2020 FA Watch

    Well, that would certainly suck. Let's hope they play some games.

    2019-2020 Celtics Regular Season Thread

    Have we seen any rumors about the Celtics opening up their training facility for players?

    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    Cross country still involves quite a bit of non-social distancing. By the end, sure, the kids are usually pretty spread out. But, the beginning is everyone shoulder to shoulder and breathing very heavily. I'd hate to see it, but I think all Fall sports might be out as considered to be...

    For all the leagues, if this gets into a discussion of money I fear there will be no seasons.
