I don’t believe it makes any sense to delay the season. I would just have no fans in the stands. Very odd that Florida seems ready to go, and Arizona is not. Would there be a possibility of all teams having ST in Florida. That makes even less sense to double up on personnel. Other possible options include pushing all games back a month, or the Arizona teams playing in Texas, or elsewhere.January 28, 2021 at 8:55 am #152587gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
Perhaps there could be a compromise where the season is delayed a month but 162 games were still played with a bunch of 7 inning doubleheaders. It would be tough to pull off but a possibility.
If the MLBPA proposed that we would then find out if the owners were really concerned about health or just saving money.January 28, 2021 at 9:03 am #152590
That is one possibility I have heard informally. IMO, compressed schedules with twin bills benefit teams with pitching depth.February 1, 2021 at 8:27 am #153018February 9, 2021 at 7:21 am #153854
An explanation of the delay in selling spring training tickets. A schedule tweak is coming.
MLB in process of finalizing revised Grapefruit League schedule, placing teams in separate “pods” on east and west coasts of Florida, sources tell me and @MattGelb. West-coast teams in FL will play 28 games and east-coast teams 24, making up rest with intrasquad-type matchups.

My assessment: The changes shouldn’t be too extensive for the Cardinals as their original 30-game schedule has just three games out of the pod. Home and away vs. the Braves and home vs. the Twins. All the rest are already vs. MIA, NYM, HOU and WAS.February 9, 2021 at 8:03 am #153860ZTRParticipantFree
Its funny how, in general, people will support measures that do not impact them and be critical of those who don’t ‘go along’; then, when it’s their turn in the barrel (i.e. THEY will lose money) it becomes a totally different story.
I guess the moral of the story is that it’s always easier to sacrifice someone else’s money.
The entertainment and service industries have been crushed by the pandemic. Regarding baseball its the minor league players and maybe the young minimum salary major leaguers who have suffered. In the age of ‘using platforms to speak out’ did the players as a group support the service / entertainment industry during the enforced shutdown or are they primarily looking out for #1 when they demand a 162 game schedule?
I would think that most of the baseball owners will be fine financially even with taking a haircut for a couple of years BUT I would absolutely expect them to ‘keep a weather eye’ on the revenue \ cost equation and make certain decisions based on the economics.
Depending on the success of Covid-19 vaccines and the extension of limited attendance at games it will be interesting to watch how each side spins the news to justify supporting their position.February 11, 2021 at 2:14 pm #154014February 11, 2021 at 2:16 pm #154016

That’s good news for all involved. Should be fun to catch the ovation for Arenado for the home opener.March 4, 2021 at 8:17 am #155241March 4, 2021 at 9:47 am #155244

I am very pleased to hear about the Lou Gehrig Day. He is one of my all time favorite MLB players and favorite humans in general.March 4, 2021 at 8:13 pm #1552761982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
I’m hoping by middle of season they allow more people. My son likes atlanta as well so would like to go to that game. But since they are allowing season ticket holders first dibs I doubt I’ll be able to get tickets at a reasonable price anyway unless they open up more seats.March 4, 2021 at 8:52 pm #155278PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
I don’t think you have to worry about that, Willie. This virus is struggling now. Fewer and fewer hosts to occupy really has it reeling. I think these rash of variants is it’s hail Mary prayer for survival…..which will not work. With this being said, unvaccinated adults still need to be very careful as it can still get you. I like our odds very very much of things getting close to normal by this summer.March 5, 2021 at 7:19 pm #1553091982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
I hope you are right pugsley. Though I can’t afford to go to a lot of games, I really enjoy it when I do.March 10, 2021 at 8:18 am #155474
