Well first off, baseball may actually happen after all.
Players to report to Spring Training on July 1st. 60 games. DH. Extra innings begin with runner on 2nd. Money blah blah contracts blah blah blah blah.
There have already been numerous cases of covid-19 with players and baseball supporting staff.
Oh, I'm excited for sure, but I can't imagine this happening without some major hiccups.
Something or things will happen that no one has thought about yet.
And the thing we all dread most, well I don't need to even write that.
We'll have plenty of time to reflect on the massive amount of douchebaggery and damage to the game this teeny bit of owners vs. players negotiating spawned.
I mean, even BEFORE Cardinal owner Bill DeWitt said that baseball wasn't very profitable, we'd already been treated to Astros owner Bill Crane saying their World Series cheating "Didn't impact the game. I never said it didn't impact the game."
So, not talking about that yet.
I'm just remembering that Kris Bryant didn't get traded, and had baseball NOT happened (and it still might not, thank you virus), then possibly the last time we'd have seen him in a Cubs uniform...he was being helped off the field after slipping on first base.
That ain't no way for that guy to go out.
IF it turns out he's no longer a Cub after this season.
Okay happier thought: The Sandberg Game.
If you recall, I was there by accident (a friend from Belleville came up to Chicago with Cardinal fans and extra tickets).
The game sucked early as Steve Trout gave up 7 runs in the first 4 outs.
But then it.. got better.
Today ESPN put up a 45 minute video titled "The Sandberg Game".
I'm waiting to watch until it's an appropriate time to crack a cold one.
