  1. he could want to play and be motivated to get his mind off his wife. he is in a better position with Arizona.
  2. for everything baseball. I feel like I would be leaning Marte. Harper has more power, but Marte is a better hitter and brings more speed.
  3. sad about his wife. also saw a debate on twitter about Bryce Harper and someone said they would take Starling Marte over Harper. discuss. I think I would have to take Marte, and we haven't seen the best from him yet since he's been buried in Pittsburgh. Harper to me has been overrated.
  4. I remember when Jose Cruz JR was a rookie still with the Mariners. I don't remember the price at card shops but his Bowman rookie card was on fire and he was barely in the majors. some of the rookie cards from the 80's of great HOF players are so low. Greg Maddux Topps Traded rookie, last I checked was $12.00.
  5. one of my happiest memories was in the mid 90's when I ordered a box of 500+ packs of cards (90% baseball) from shop at home. I spent hours opening up packs of cards with so many stars and rookie cards. sucks that most of the rookie cards from the early 90's are not worth what you would think. I remember watching a special on TV about baseball cards, and how Upper Deck was making sheets of just the 89 Griffey rookie.
  6. my favorite player has always been Fred McGriff. I'm about 2 hours south of Toronto. as a kid in the 80's I loved the Blue Jays and McGriff. I had a bunch of memorabilia, tshirts, posters. my favorite number was even 19. I was only a kid but I knew players sometimes changed teams, but I never even imagined that McGiff could be traded, he was young and in his prime. then came the trade with the Padres, McGriff and Tony Fernandez for Joe Carter and Roberto Alomar. I was devastated. I didn't understand how they could trade McGriff. it worked out for the Jays with 2 World Series championships, but I still felt impacted by the trade. I haven't really had a favorite player like that since.
  7. since things don't have to be the same, why would Wimbledon have to be in the same place it always has been? organizers don't have to be there in person to organize. what should be essential is things that are more normal so that people don't literally go crazy. we have months of this left, with no sports at all. some people are going to have a mental break down.
  8. people really can't organize this without being close with another? I don't believe that. organizers should be able to do this via video. workers in attendance should be able to sanitize the arena without being close to someone else.
  9. why do they cancel Wimbledon. they could still have tennis without fans in attendance, who are quiet when the match is going on anyway. the players are on opposite sides for social distancing and so is the umpire. this could give some sports for people to watch. same thing goes for golf.
  10. even if they do that there are already going to be people going by what they said first. even if there is baseball at all this season at a point where we don't have to worry about Coronavirus anymore (if that happens) attendance is going to be horrible because thousands if not millions of people are going to remain terrified of going anywhere. Bubble Boy (2001) would be a good movie right about now because that could be our future with the only way some will wan to go outside.
  11. how can anyone ban things so far in the future when nobody knows what is going to happen.
  12. why would baseball change to 7 innings? would this be to help with double header games? except that can be solved by having 1 game in the afternoon, with another game at night. 2 innings eliminated isn't going to make a difference. there could be more starting pitchers if teams go with a 6 man rotation to counter double headers. is there data anywhere on which starting pitchers would be effected if teams stay with a 5 man rotation and some starters have to pitch on 4 days rest rather than 5+?
  13. I thought yahoo public leagues would have more people signed up to draft simply to do something normal related to baseball, but when picking date and times throughout the day it's mostly 0 people with maybe the odd time 1 or 2.
  14. what about people that were sick that were not official diagnosed as having coronavirus that would have gotten better. they wouldn't show up in any data.
  15. why are pitchers on their own right now not throwing. there is no reason they aren't pitching just the same right now with a catcher through 100ish pitches like a simulated game, so that once a spring training starts it could be 2 weeks or even 1 week. it would be like a player after being injured and only playing a handful of rehab games.
