Baseball's Back: Players Reporting to Camps After Reaching Deal With Owners

Source: NBC Los Angeles

Major League Baseball players on Tuesday said they were reporting to training camp after reaching a deal to start the coronavirus-delayed 2020 season.

MLB had asked the union to respond by 5 p.m. EDT Tuesday as to whether players can report to training by July 1 and whether the players' association will agree on the operating manual of health and safety protocols. The schedule would start July 24 and would be the shortest since the National League's third season.

Spring training was suspended on March 12, two weeks ahead of scheduled openers, and the sides reverted to the familiar financial infighting that fractured the sport in the past. An initial deal March 26 called for players to receive prorated salaries and gave MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred power to set the schedule, but that agreement did not require MLB to play in ballparks without fans.

1. The greed for money in this country is so disgusting

They should look at Djokovic's positive diagnosis as a stark warning to professional jocks that think they are immune for some reason.

9. Those AZ and FL camps are great for early spring training.

Now, the teams can train anywhere.

6. Wonder what the rules are for an infected player?

If one guy gets the virus will the whole team be quarantined and their games be forfeited?

Bad, bad idea.

17. Nope!

They're allowed an expanded roster (AA guys?).
If someone tests positive, 48 hour sequester, then retest.
If the test negative twice, they're free to rejoin the team.
Not the most robust safety measure.

18. But if one player tests positive, isn't it possible part of, or the entire team, has been exposed?

19. Of Course

But, that's not how they wrote the safety protocols.
I didn't say I thought it was a good plan. Merely a plan.

10. I think it can be done safely

if the players, coaches, and umpires can follow safe practices and be tested perhaps twice a week. Many (perhaps not all) do take their health seriously. As added incentive, testing positive should put you on disability for the rest of the season, and cause the team to forfeit games for the next two weeks (while they isolate). This could be a good advertising for what it takes to fight this virus.

12. It totally is madness...

There will be a huge population in this country that will pay the price for going out and trying to do stuff in a normal way during a pandemic.. if it doesn't kill them, it will kill their parents and grand parents.

14. Just going into a public restroom might be deadly.

Because the C-19 virus also hits the intestines and when that person who might be
asymptomatic drops a # 2 enough virus could splash up that could make somebody else
sick.

15. I may be wrong, but I don't think they are opening the stadiums.

They'll be playing without fans there.

13. When will the decide what parks will have fans and which won't.

If they have fans, are there going to be food and drinks sold and just in booths or selling in the stands?
