Iím social distancing, we have a curfew in place where I live, and Iím taking the precautionary steps to do my part. Iím not visiting my parents (ages 61 & 67) to be on the safe side, which is tough.

    So yeah, Iím not catching a game at Wrigley, nor will I be attending college football games until a vaccine is in place. Iím skeptical, where we sit today, on 2 different vacations already planned for June and August.

    I feel like that is an idea for the sake of having one. You canít move players away from their families for the next several months just to start the Baseball season because their simply wonít be enough room to have every players families in the same location and we are talking about all 30 teams playing in the same location.

    Kris Bryantís wife is pregnant and expecting to deliver very soon. I doubt heíd want to play baseball in Arizona for the season and be away from his wife and baby. He is only one player who would have an issue with it, I am sure. Everyone would have different but very valid reasons to not wanting to do that.

    Apparently China is supposedly seeing a second wave of infections starting to come around. So that probably doesnít bode well for it ending any time soon.

They all have families they will be around, and their families will be around people as well. They all will be staying in hotel rooms. They all will be eating out. Thereís just so many ways that this isnít safe for players to play if this hasnít cleared up, and especially if there isnít a vaccine.

    Seems like weíre just delaying the inevitable that there will be no season this year.

    Probably better to just let it go at this point. Wish it was the football season instead, as I loathe that sport.

    Yep, increasingly likely we wonít have a season. Trump is simply guessing and for someone who actually used the word ďhoaxĒ to describe the Coronavirus a couple of months ago, I wouldnít take anything he says seriously. The man is simply a child who speaks and thinks like a child. Or, he is thinking like a business man because he is a business man.

    Not only is he speaking for the various States in the US that are heavily affected, like New York who have two teams and theyíre one of the most heavily affected cities in the world. He is also speaking for what Canada will do considering Canada have a team that plays in MLB. Will the Blue Jays be set up in the United States during Baseball season for several months? How do you manage that situation? Maybe their borders wonít be open this year, so you either have the Blue Jays in the US throughout the season or you quarantine every team who has to visit Canada and the TBJ when they come to the US and that simply doesnít work.

    I doubt their infections ever stopped. It's a country with over a billion people and they nerfed their numbers from the beginning.

    I think there's a real chance we aren't seeing any major sports this year given the certainty of this coming back in the fall. Maybe baseball? Maybe... but I don't see how they can finish even a shortened season if/when this comes back.
