This isnt about Seattle anymore.  Yes, there will be a quick need for a week of workouts.  But early May is optimistic.

 

 

Point is, whether it be playing in empty stadiums for a month or whatever it may be, they'll find a way to play on time.

I think they figure out a way around delaying the season.  If you delay the season you'll essentially have to replay spring training.  They'll move the Mariners down to Arizona for a month and move enough pieces to work around it.

 

NBA set the bar.   And really it's no longer just about Seattle.  MLB will announce an "indefinite" delay within 48 hours.

Only 6000 Americans have been tested for coronavirus.  We have no idea how bad it really is or will get.

South Korea test 15,000 per day

The Player's Association won't allow it.

great point.  No way it starts on time.  In fact, spring training will end tomorrow or the next day.

Season is in jeopardy. What if one player on one team is tested positive the whole team is quarantined

You'll probably see a 90-115 game schedule.

Baseball is an outdoor sport. This would cause a problem with the playoffs being in very cold weather. Supension would mean cutting the season short. Losing money.

NBA can still get all its games in if it wants.

A solution to this would be just to play the games in their spring training stadiums without any spectators. It keeps traveling to a minimum.

There is no solution. Are we suppose to keep these players in a bubble? Going shopping eating food etc..

Rudy Gobert tested positive, resulting in the suspension of the league. If one MLB player tests positive, it will result in the suspension of the league as well.

It's not like they wouldn't get all their basic needs met, and it's a temporary fix, eventually things will go back to normal.

 

Mlb is already floating the idea of them playing regular season games at their spring training complexes, this isn't just some idea I pulled out of my butt or seems unreasonable.

They will have to suspend I think. As soon as a player tests positive then they have to shut it down anyway so why waste trying to start up in front of empty stadiums? 

For those of you not understanding why something that has killed only 4,000 worldwide is creating such a commotion compared to the flu it’s because what this virus is capable of. It’s mortality rate is probably at least 20-40x that of flu. When that many people get that sick so quickly the health care system (built to handle the background sicknesses or flu and other things) simply cant cope with the stress of so many people needing ICUs. They don’t have enough manpower or equipment. Then people start dying of regular things.  So when you cite, “oh the flu kills 500,000 a year and we don’t care about that” it’s almost like someone dismissing the dangers of driving 150 mph on the highway because the earth is spinning at a 1000 mph and we don’t consider walking around dangerous.

No way.  You're in some sort of denial.

You need to be in somewhat of a bubble.  Social distancing is the answer to stopping the spread and must begin immediately.

Yes, its deadly for the elderly.  They end up getting viral pneumonia and there is no antibiotics for that.  And then they die.  This kills your grandparents and cancelling and postponing large groups of people is ALL about saving them.  You'll catch it and have a fever and the brown squirts and be fine.  Grandma won't be.

You are right.  How long has the player had it?  Who knows.  And so, oh, then his team, and this team and that team he played against must be quarantined.  Gobert FELT FINE tonight.  That's whats scary.  I would almost guarantee you there are major leaguers with it already.
