Hello baseball friends. Apparently there's going to be a base ball this year. I look forward to shitposting about it, if it actually comes to pass, and if MLB actually remembers that Toronto is not in the United States and that they'll need government permission to let their disease-infested plague caravans cross the border.

I was wondering what they were going to do and apparently they have gotten permission to play in Toronto

I think the original plan was to stay in Dunedin until FL went nuts with cases

Despite growing up with the movies, my older brother being obsessed with Tolkein and having read tons of supplemental Middle Earth material (lore books mostly) I'd never actually read the trilogy. Figured it was about time I did, just about done with the Fellowship and it's great.

Apparently MLB has concluded that they can't legally force minor leaguers who are not on the 40 man from taking another baseball job.

OFFICAL NEW 2020 RULES

  • National League DL
  • Extra innings start with a runner on second. The dude on second is the dude in the batting slot before the current batter. For scoring the dude on second is there by way of uncharged fielding error.
  • Three-batter minimum rule is a go.
  • BUT no limits on who or when a fielder can be a pitcher in the game.
  • Strictly enforced unsportsmanlike conduct for social distancing. Players or managers who leave their positions to argue with umpires, come within six feet of an umpire or opposing player or manager for the purpose of argument, or engage in altercations on the field are subject to immediate ejection and discipline, including fines and suspensions.

ROSTER STUFF
  • We got a 60 Man Club Player Pool. This is like the teams AAA team for the year. Teams can add players at any time, but removing them is like coming off the 40 man, they got to trade, release, DFA, or outright them. They can not be added back to the 60 man.
  • On opening day teams have to have active MLB roster of 30 men (min of 25). All pulled from the 60 man.
  • 15 days after the season starts the MLB roster goes 28.
  • 29 days after the season starts through the rest of the season and post season the roster is 26 men.
  • You can have on extra dude for a double header.
  • Teams will travel with a 3 man taxi squad one of which has to be a catcher. This group is just to save a replacement a flight if somebody get injured. Standard roster rules apply when adding them to the team. (No NPB like switching out yesterdays pitcher for a fresh player.)
  • August 31st will be the 2020 trade deadline and September 15th will be the 2020 Postseason eligibility deadline.
  • We got a 10 day IL and a 45 day IL. Then a special COVID19 IL that you have to show no symptoms and pass two COVID19 test to get off of.

HEALTH STUFF
  • Teams got a COVID19 Plan
  • No spitting
  • Pitchers got a wet rag
  • Everyone should try and keep their distance
  • No Pregame lineup exchange

I am disappointed by the taxi squad. I thought player could move on or off of it freely.

What happens to guys who opt out of the season, with regards to service time? If a guy who opts out would have been a FA in the offseason, does that whole thing get shifted a year so that hes a FA after 2021 instead?
