We've been through this. Bubble(s) for baseball are so much harder. 900 games in 2 months. It's not like the NBA/NHL which are in playoff mode - already starting with fewer teams and teams will be eliminated every 2 weeks or less. Far fewer games, far fewer players, can play 3 games a day in 1 venue, and no worries about bad weather.

I think the majority of players go home over playing in a bubble.

Hope there's baseball for the Cards tomorrow. If not, it means additional positives will have been reported.

A friend of mine is working all Dodger games for Spectrum. I hope for her sake that they can make it. She went unemployed from March until when the season finally started.

Heyman from MLB network just re-emphasizing a bubble would have never worked for baseball.



Same goes with football.

I wonder how OOTP (MLB,MLBPA officially licensed computer baseball game) will handle 7 inning double headers?

For years players have requested 7 inning double headers for the minor leagues and they said it would be too hard to code.

The video game has been out for months. They won’t add the revised rules.

That's kind of where I am with WFT. Shitty offseason, can't use the name anymore w/o being called a racist by the holier-than-thous, and not enough bad press to dump the owner. I say let every NFL fan suffer.

They change all the time with updates.

This is a computer game.

I usually don't update if I am not having problems with the game.

Manfred is threatening to shutdown the season if teams don't start doing a better job managing the virus(according to Boston Sports Hub).

Interesting too see what the NFL has too say about it.

Hey I am watching your Washington Wizards,Felger and Mazz(Sports Hub) and playing OOTP computer baseball so I will leave it to other people for links.

Besides I have tried leaving links before and they didn't work.

Copy and paste is beyond your comprehension. Takes 4 mouse clicks to accomplish it. Not surprising.

I feel nothing for the Wizards. Not sure where you got that I like them.

Sounds like Marlins players were just doing whatever they fucking wanted rather than following protocol. There is no way the NFL or college can get through a season.

Has Costas done a game yet?

He gets paid a lot of money to sit on his ass and he has no TV or radio show or other commitments except the occasional CNN appearances.

He's right as it's annoying that all I've read on Twitter this week (from NHL and NBA fans) is #Bubbleworks when they post something about MLB. The NBA and NHL are essentially doing a 2 month playoff so there will be less players to manage every 2-3 weeks after each round. MLB and NFL are doing full seasons with playoffs, so it's not that easy.
