This personally stinks because I enjoy watching the games but, honestly I’m happier if this in the end keeps people safe and unharmed.

Good decision. We need to get this under control and then we can get back to life as we knew it.

Well, we're not going to get it under control until after November, so.....

This will help slow everything down but it's not going away

But, this is in fact good for players like Conforto and Cespedes and Betances so I am okay with it selfishly as a Mets fan.

But hate it for the US of course

If you'd asked me which would get shut down first, the server or MLB as a whole, I would have guessed server. :shock:

MLB official statement


Quote:
Following a call with the 30 Clubs, and after consultation with the Major League Baseball Players Association, Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. today announced that MLB has decided to suspend Spring Training games and to delay the start of the 2020 regular season by at least two weeks due to the national emergency created by the coronavirus pandemic. This action is being taken in the interests of the safety and well-being of our players, Clubs and our millions of loyal fans.

MLB will continue to evaluate ongoing events leading up to the start of the season. Guidance related to daily operations and workouts will be relayed to Clubs in the coming days. As of 4:00 p.m. (ET) today, forthcoming Spring Training games have been cancelled, and 2020 World Baseball Classic Qualifier games in Tucson, Arizona have been postponed indefinitely.

MLB and the Clubs have been preparing a variety of contingency plans regarding the 2020 regular season schedule. MLB will announce the effects on the schedule at an appropriate time and will remain flexible as events warrant, with the hope of resuming normal operations as soon as possible.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our players, employees and fans. MLB will continue to undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts. We send our best wishes to all individuals and communities that have been impacted by coronavirus.

I find this talk about Kelenic comical. He's a 19 year old kid who hit .253 at Kingsport
and struck out once a game and people are talking like he's the second coming. Get real people. When you have a chance to get the best reliever in the game who's only 24 and give up Kelenic in the deal, you MAKE that deal. Stop with the nonsense.

No games/IGTs or opening day, etc. is going to be tough. [-o<

To be fair, they said at least two weeks.

I'm a little surprised by this, but it's not crazy. I think they'll want to get all the players tested and probably work out some kind of plan to set up games, maybe without fans in the stadium to preserve the season, but time will tell
