    3/13 for strikes, not bad.

    5/9 Nick Vs. Orioles (1:05 Start)

    You all are welcome. I'll keep my thoughts to myself next time I suppose... I do hate how updates the box score before it actually "happens"

    Time to go 2-8 as a team with RISP

    Matt Barnes Tested Positive For Covid-19

    This is certainly something that occurs with a decent degree of consistency. I went through Covid earlier this winter and as a teacher where I live, I was on an automatic 10 day sick leave. Once those 10 days were up and I had no symptoms for 48 hours, I could return, no PCR confirmation...

    Cleveland Indians not changing their name until at least 2022

    The Cleavers. Nice violent imagery to boot. In some seriousness, I wonder if names that are acceptable to use such as "warrior" or "brave" would be more acceptable? In the posted photo above of the protest in Cleveland, one of the signs says "people not mascots," so I wonder if just...

    Manfred: 16-team postseason likely to stay as “an overwhelming majority” of owners endorsed the concept before COVID

I'm not saying that I support this, but at this point, with a 16-team playoff, you're essentially creating a tournament in which the...

    Covid and MLB

    Of course this is way too early to have any real conclusion, but perhaps what we're seeing is similar to some of the contact tracing that has been going on in some places for a while. Covid transmission in an outdoor environment when contact is brief is probably rare. Meaning that sharing...

    COVID-19 and the Red Sox

    Yes and what would the facility look like that would also allow for proper social-distancing for 30 players from 30 different teams plus the support staff? At that point you're not talking about a resort complex but a small city. I could see perhaps if you used all day for games, reminding us...

    COVID-19 and the Red Sox

    I have to admit that the amount of posts in V&N is a bit daunting, but I will certainly look for a conversation where this information is relevant and add to the discussion. I really do agree with you about it all being a lack of will -- the talk of liberty and freedom as reasons to not wear a...

    COVID-19 and the Red Sox

    Two big caveats before this post: not a doctor and certainly not a professional athlete. That being said, I currently live in Spain where professional sport has returned and so far rather successfully in terms of players not getting infected, staying healthy, etc. While I haven't spent too...
