"2020 MLB Season Post: It's not a marathon...it's a sprint!!"
Fri Jul-24-20 01:07 AM by CyrenYoung

          

...and, heeeeere we go!

Yanks @ Nats Gerrit Cole/Max Scherzer starting (no Soto, no problem?)

Giants @ Dodgers Johnny Cueto/Clayton Kershaw (seems like only yesterday, Cueto kicked Jason LaRue in the head, up against the backstop in Cincy...forcing him to retire due to concussion-related syptoms)

...cleaned up my act, made a few violent songs...but, they wack like Glen Rice with New Balance on - Sean Price

First of all, it doesn't "sound" good. Like, it could be easily confused as feedback. The AEW manages to do it better.

Second, I just don't like the idea of it. "Crowd" noise isn't essential for an event.

I mean, it's not like the majority of games have a Game 7 World Series atmosphere. The cutouts are weird. They were saying during the Nationals game that each home team gets to choose if they want cutouts, or if they want those seats behind home plate, left open. Nationals went open.

but I'm so used to it while watching baseball games it would just be weird to hear an empty stadium. In the Yankees - Nationals game Smoltz was commenting on how good a job they are doing with keeping it in the flow of the game, Michael Taylor hit a homer in Washington and they ramped up the crowd noise as the ball was flying over the fence + cheering when he was rounding the bases and they didn't miss a beat, i didn't even notice until he said it cuz it sounded so normal.

In response to Reply # 23


  

          

Since each stadium features ambient noise recorded from games played at that park, each space sounds subtly different.


Funnily enough, it sounds more natural in real life than it does in the game since there's an actual engineer at the helm instead of an algorithm.

In response to Reply # 7


  

          

Looks weird, sure, but it gets the fans involved when they can’t go to the park, and I’ve surprisingly gotten used to it while watching the KBO. I think the noise is more for the players than the fans, so I’m fine with that too. Fox is about to add a digital crowd though and for me that’s a step too far.

A's put up one with Tom Hanks selling hot dogs (which he legit did way back in the day). Players requesting cut outs of their dogs near them is kinda funny too.

the giant teddy bears are kinda cute too. it just looked kinda ludicrous at first sight, but I've actually pretty much gotten used to the whole thing now.

if they're gonna do it they should do more fun goofy stuff like have a Marlins Man cutout at every game one night, have Thumbs Down Guy at the Yankees-Mets and Yankees/Rays games, etc.

baseball is always kind of like background noise to me anyway...rarely am I glued to the couch focusing on it. I just have it on while I'm doing other stuff.

baseball isn't nearly as reliant on fan noise as football...where I think the piped in noise will be far more noticeable to me as I do focus on the game to a much greater extent.

He was SO confident too. Most bad first pitches you can see the person second-guessing themselves. Not him, he really thought he was nailing it.

Oh well, god bless him.

In response to Reply # 17


  

          

My only concern was if it would affect pitchers’ stats the way college football OT affects defensive stats, but it seems from last night with the A’s grand slam that the initial runner counted as an RBI for the batter, but not an Earned Run for the pitcher. Someone correct me if I got that wrong, but if that’s the case it’s A-OK with me.

they wanna cap it at)

Too easy to get a run in from 2nd with no outs.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

33. "Kenta Maeda is the pitcher the Twins kept trying to create"
In response to Reply # 0


          

The Falv-ine regime has been hugely fun, but it's kind of funny that Falvey in particular was sold as the spin-whisperer for pitchers, the sort of guy who'd combine Terry Ryan's knack for finding diamonds in the rough with a re-prioritized Twins scouting machine to give Minnesota an endless run of Kluber-esque finds.

That hasn't really happened, but the blunt solution of just hitting the ball over the wall nearly twice a game is a perfectly fine substitute.

Watching Maeda carve up the White Sox yesterday kind of showed the ideal of what the team spent 2008-2015 trying to cultivate and therefore probably why that was such a bad idea: he seems like a pretty idiosyncratic talent, rare not just in size (not to get carried away - he's a not a STAR but there aren't a lot of pitchers better than him) but in shape.

nba got the bubble. mlb got some natural social distancing already embedded in the game with some additional new mitigation protocols.

nfl basically just sent an email chain letter around like 'yall ready to show up for work?'.

if they really do try to start the nfl season...the magnitude of their outbreaks is gonna be embarrassing. a few weeks into it and its just gonna be utter chaos and confusion with a bunch of schefty scoops of players/coaches/staff/owners shitting on each other for the incompetence.

clearly MLB does not give a flying fuck about any precautions; they're just trying to churn through a shortened season at any cost. I'm not going out there while MLB just guesses what safety measures they should take next.

2. Players are tested EVERY OTHER DAY WITH A TURNAROUND TIME OF 36 HOURS.

3. Nowhere does the 113-page protocol that governs the 2020 season explicitly address how the league would handle a coronavirus outbreak.

4. Players/teams can have their salaries withheld if they are unable to play due to contracting the virus.

All of the above is just insane. The MLB literally does not give a shit. And unfortunately that mirrors the Conservative mentality that is ever-present at the top of the league. This is horrible.

per Marly Rivera:

I've spoken to several MLB managers in both Leagues, and one thing they're really concerned about has been team hotels being full of people. Two managers told me about weddings being celebrated at the team hotel, which were really crowded and no social distancing was practiced.

seems like that would be possible at the moment.

not sure how the league expects players/staff to stay safe when they have them in close quarters (elevators, lobbies, etc) with the general population. the stupidity and lack of foresight is maddening. i'm really at a loss for words.

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association have agreed to stage seven-inning doubleheaders starting Aug. 1, sources familiar with the situation tell ESPN.

With a number of doubleheaders expected to take place on account of rescheduled games due to current and potential coronavirus outbreaks as well as weather-related postponements, shortening games to seven innings was a compromise that came together quickly.

The extra-innings runner-on-second rule still will apply in doubleheader games, meaning teams in the eighth inning will automatically start with a runner on second base, sources tell ESPN.

I'm not even trying to simplify this but I kinda am. And if it was one of those crowded hotel sitches, then that's fucked up, but if it was like 'we went to a bar'.....I don't really have sympathy at this point

if the sport doesnt do a better job?

they do realize that they have to *make* the sport do a better job right? like completely overhaul parts of your approach and implement stricter measures for *everyone* to abide by. you cant just make changes to your schedule and pray for the best lol.

Lorenzo Cain tells the Brewers, “I’m out ✌🏾“. Feels like, at any moment, Buster Olney will announce the season is cancelled.

people talk about covid like a zero sum game. you either live or you die. or maybe that theres even some long term damage in the more severe cases.

but a recent study shows 78% of people who got the virus had some degree of heart damage. 60% with ongoing inflammation that could last for years or even a lifetime (and disrupts the hearts rhythm or ability to pump blood). the majority of them were mild cases that werent hospitalized and many were even asymptomatic.
https://twitter.com/DrZoeHyde/status/1287789724376035329

imagine what those numbers look like when you consider all of the people who just get it and keep on moving. with no idea that this thing could be a ticking time bomb doing damage to their body that might not be blatantly noticeable until 10-20 yrs down the line.

*13 over the past week. Six players, seven staff.

How....did they pad the end of the schedule for all these extra games/series? Like HOW is this being handled so poorly. Other teams are at like 9/10 games played and the Marlins are at like 3.

Each side starts with the bases loaded.
