OFFICAL NEW 2020 RULES

  • National League DH
  • 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

Speaking of MLB.tv, anyone know if T-mobile is going to have their deal again? The page is still up and says:

At T-Mobile, we love baseball as much as you do. And the second itís back, weíll be on deck with free MLB.TV for our customers.

I want to watch baseball this season, but there is no way I'm paying for MLB.tv to watch the 5 games that will actually be played.

Anyway here's some more pics. I like the brick pillars, and the roof is cool from an engineering perspective. Would look a lot better covered in anything but sheet metal. Also soooo many girders or w/e, I wonder if popups will be hard to see with the roof closed?

Before I read the caption I thought the opened/closed comparison shot was their park vs Minute Maid.

Watching you sleep.

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.



Its looks marginally better that the "front" is apparently that long side and there's an actual "plaza" or something instead of that angle we've been looking at from the side that looks like a hardware store parking lot.

On the other hand I think it looks even uglier open.

But I guess ultimately like what your mom told you its what's inside that counts.

That's kind of the funny thing, it's supposedly modeled partly after Minute Maid but MMP isn't exactly the prettiest park so why would you choose it?
