    Covid and MLB

    I could actually see NFL working better than baseball. At first I couldn’t, but the 1 game a week may turn out to be a huge advantage. Test everyone Friday, then bubble until game time?

    UFC 2020

    Deiveson Figueiredo Is a terrifying 125 lb’er. I had a lot of fun watching that card last night.

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

    Yea, you’re probably right. Just seems like a recipe to spread it all around the team and then likely to opponents. I assumed there would be something in place once the games start and you are mixing players from different teams, but probably not.

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

    Has there been any sort of decision on what happens if/when a player tests positive for covid? I read somewhere KBO was doing a league wide 3 week shutdown in the event of a positive test, but haven’t seen anything on MLBs plan.

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

    The owners current rumored schedule with a 7/29 start date seems very easily defensible with ST camps being shut down due to virus outbreaks in mid-late June. I think it’s a very easy to make the argument that there just wasn’t time to get many more games in.

    Mookie Betts 2020 FA Watch

    Rickey led the league 12 times in that era. Mookie has been 5th once. Mookies a fine base stealer, he’s not Rickey Henderson.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    The NFL still left Portnoy’s money on the table. Take his money and still donate the 250k and it’s double for the charity. Ban Portnoy from bringing his phone and you can ruin it for him that way.

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

    I went looking for this the other day to see the impact of the lost gate between The NFL and MLB. Its not going to be perfect, but Forbes has these profiles: https://www.forbes.com/teams/boston-red-sox/#97159b07d42d It shows the Sox with operating income of $89mm with $199mm in gate revenues...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    Even if the NFL matches Portnoy’s 250k (which they could do no problem, obviously), they are still leaving his money on the table.

    UFC 2020

    The first UFC I ever watched as a kid was the David vs Goliath tournament. I rented it on VHS. This 23 seconds of fight has stuck with me ever since. View: https://youtu.be/H08BBFsVsK8

    UFC 2020

    https://www.si.com/johnwallstreet/sports-business/ufc-249-espn-debt UFC has to put on 42 events for ESPN to keep the full deal. They need these events. I’d be pretty surprised if this one got a late cancel. Can’t wait to watch Ngannou/Rozenstruik
